Poker God


I can't remember when a man has made me this happy.  What a minute, did I say MAN?  I meant Poker God!  I'm talking about SmBoatDrinks himself!


Boat played a heads up match against BrainMc for his life and he won.  It was an epic match too that lasted about an hour.  An hour of shocking twists.  I swear they took 10 years off my life.  Both were short stacked and came back more than once.  Both got lucky and both got in good. 

I think SmBoatDrinks illustrated the difference between a goot player and a great one when he was shortstacked.  He had J-7 and the flop was J-4-5 or something like that, with brain holding the 3-6 for an oesd. Betting and a calling, then there's a 7 on the river, which gives brain a straight and boat top 2 pair.  If i were him in that situation, being shortstacked and all, I think I would've jammed to Brain's bet.  Instead boat calls, loses, and is down to 300 chips, but STILL IN THE GAME.  Amazing.  Then fought back to even, and up and down enough times to give me heartburn, and finally the win.


Guess what Boat and I are doing tomorrow night?

No, we aren't having drinks on a boat, but you're close!  We're playing The Booze Cruise on Full Tilt Poker!

Tuesday Night at 9:10pm
Password is boatdrinks
$5+.50

Come play with me, if only to aggravate me.  It's a mixed game and that means I'll be easy pickings.  It starts limit holdem, then omaha, stud, blah, blah and then BADUGI!!!  Last week I didn't last long enough to play badugi.  Here's hoping I make it this week.  I really want to give badugi a try.

Let's make the game interesting!  Take out The Poker God (Boat) and I'll ship you $6 (your buyin). 

$6 bounty on SmBoatDrinks!  He's too good so you'll never get it!

BTW I may be a little late for The Booze Cruise, but I'm signing up so please no stealing my blinds till I get home.  I'm doing a focus group with my sista that ends at 8:00pm, but it's kinda far away.  I think I should be home just in time.

The focus group is on oldies music.  (no comments please) You had to be between 42 - 49 years old to qualify. :) I believe I have to listen to music and tell them which songs I like.  I can do that!

BrianMc, I tip my cap to you.  You played a great game of Survivor and a great game of poker.  I thought you were going to pull off my worst nightmare...taking my boy Boaty out.  GG on that front and the way you played Heads Up against Boat.  I know I wouldn't want to play HU against you.  :)  Well, I kinda do, now.  :) I'm just glad I didn't have to play  you for my survivor life. 

16 contestants started on the island and there are only 5 left.

Very Josie (she rocks)
SmBoatDrinks (poker god)
XKM (confuses the heck out of me)
Muchtim (the final member of the former Team Donkey)
Turtle (yeah, Turtle)

There you have it.  We'll be playing The Dank for our lives on Wednesday night at 10pm ET.  I'm taking that game down, so I suggest you stay out of my way.

Play smart.

Josie

Ken, you speak the truth, but HOW DID YOU KNOW?

KenP said...

I just read it!

Josie said...

Excuse me, I don't remember posting anything about my bedroom skills....um in THIS post anyway. ;)

KenP said...

I wasn't discussing bedrooms but courting reality tv style.

Little Josie is swooning over SBD, I do declare. She is such a sweet and gentle girl and certainly should be voted off next week. Big strong SBD, protect me.

Josie said...

Listen Old Man,

I have received more than a few emails this morning telling me that Boat will back stab me at the next opportunity and I'm out next.

HE WON'T. SOME MEN ARE TRUSTWORTHY.

KenP said...

Listen, Middle Aged Lady

The laugh is about Leopards.

You're trying to change your spots more than a measles ward occupant.

You do, "I am women hear me roar." a whole lot better than Miss Scarlet. I am just enjoying your version of her.

Oh, strong Mr. SBD [stiletto slides from boot]...

Josie said...

LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Ken, I'm so glad you didn't play Survive Donkey Island!

KenP said...

Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn.

Sorry, just couldn't resist,

Jose always played Miz Scarlet when it was to her advantage. Thefact that she is still alive in a field of guys comes as no surprise. Hell, if I had played I would have been first off just to protect her.

Josie said...

LOL Wolfie - TY baby! Too bad these other guys didn't drink the kool aid.

Wolfshead said...

Oh, don't be so coy. They've been drinking the Kool aid you want them to drink ever since you signed online. Most of them just haven't figured it out.

Josie said...

Wolfie! I feel more outed than John Travolta!

Hope your feeling okay - it snowed in boston yesterday and I was thinking that couldn't be good for your arthritis.

Josie said...

Wolfie play the Booze Cruise tonight with me! Come on!!!! Mixed games and mixed drinks!

Wolfshead said...

I'm debating, depends on how I'm feeling. Now snow yesterday but lots of rain so I was hurting ans still am as there is more rain coming tomorrow.
