Even Again

Congrats to everyone who cashed in the freeroll. I probably shouldn't have played after my posts of the last few days. I was mentally unprepared and after getting rivered out of a big pot early on I was like fuck it. I will have the proper mind set on Sunday for the Big Game and I hope to satellite into one or all of the 50-50, $55K, and $500K. If I'm going to donk at MTTs might as well play for big scores. That or ride on KOD's coattails.

Almost made a big score in baseball last night. I won with the Angels but I also had Atlanta on the RL at +130 which was heartbreaking. They come back from a 5-1 deficit to take a 9-5 lead only to have Soriano give up a Grand Slam that tied it for Houston. Ah what could have been. Oh well I broke out even yet again but I am 4-2 in baseball since my return. So close. Oh well we'll get them this weekend.

I did BBQ a fat 20oz ribeye that I washed down with three vodkas so although I broke out even in baseball and poker I'd say that made me +EV for the day.

Tonight and tomorrow it's Bellagio $2/5 and betting baseball. Maybe mix in a couple cocktails and lets see if I can get August off to a good start.

Did anyone see this about a fixed tennis match? Wow I hope I can hear about a fix before it happens so I can make some major dough at the casino. Does anyone still not think the NBA or NFL is not fixed? Shame on you.

I'm really pleased with the weather here in Vegas lately. Twice last week and twice this week we've had some great summer thunderstorms. I remember last year hearing about monsoon season and to beware of flash flooding but it never once rained all summer. This year it's been much different. Highs in the low 80s and complete downpours are something I miss from Florida. Yesterday I drove up to Red Rock to make a my wagers and it was black as night. You couldn't even see the mountains which are less than 5 miles away, the lightning was firing bolts straight down to the ground and I'm sure somewhere in the core there was huge amounts of hail. No I'm not turning this into a weather blog but after not seeing rain basically for a year it was a nice change of pace.

Hopefully you have your tokens and you can join us on Sunday for the August edition of the Big Game.

I pretty much just stick to NFL and college football (but mainly NFL) for betting cuz I've had good results in the past... I really can't wait till the season starts.

20oz ribeye? Definitely +EV. Good luck this weekend unless you're at my table during the Big Game. :)
