I'm back in Vegas but the work continues. I'm still wrapping up some Florida issues from here and hopefully I can enjoy a weekend of sports and poker without having to deal with any fires. There is a big transition going on there and I hope to everything accomplished by June 1, in time for the WSOP.
I was able to play the Mookie on Wednesday but thats been it as far as poker since I've been back. Shit, last night I fell asleep at 9pm so I guess I'm somewhat drained from working and a nasty sinus headache I've had for the past four days.
I've decided to make some new notes for the Blogger events. They will be very simple A and B type notes. A. takes these events seriously and is really trying to win or B. Complete donkey who is here for the social aspect or to bust someone playing shitty cards in hopes of a rant from Hoy, Waffles or myself. Most so far fall into the B category.
For instance, the hammer is, what I like to say so 2004. It's outdated, its a bad joke, and it's just not funny anymore. Do those of you who play it still get a kick out of turning over the hammer and showing everyone how smooth you are? Are those of you at the table impressed by someone else doing it, thinking wow he or she is smooth for playing the worst possible starting hand. I think what a jackass, I can't wait until all those chips get spewed across the table and I sure hope I get my share.
Also for those of you who don't know, KJ is a shitty chip eating hand. If you want to keep open raising that from early position or calling huge reraises with it, stop wondering why you never win anything, because that is a huge leak. Yes sometimes you get lucky but more often that not misplaying that crap hand results in either being crippled or eliminated.
I understand that playing poker for most is a hobby, that it's merely a few entertainment dollars and a chance to socialize with our invisible internet friends. Yes I get pissed when I go deep and get sucked out on or lose to a horrible play, and usually its nothing personal, mostly I have trouble understanding the different levels of competitiveness. But hey, I have the abilitly to learn, so who knows maybe I'll get better at understanding just as some of you might get better at poker.
That's it for my rant. Sorry it's not to the standards of my above mentioned super-rantors but it's all I have.
Enjoy the holiday weekend and stay profitable.
