"Poker is alot like sex, everyone thinks they are the best, but most don't have a clue what they are doing!"- Dutch Boyd
"You have it in your power to turn a bad-beat around simply by realizing this simple truth: The more bad beats you encounter, the luckier you are. It's a sign that you are playing against opponents who continually take the worst of it, and if you can't beat someone who always takes the worst of it, you can't beat anyone." - Lou Krieger
"It's hard work. Gambling. Playing poker. Don't let anyone tell you different. Think about what it's like sitting at a poker table with people whose only goal is to cut your throat, take your money, and leave you out back talking to yourself about what went wrong inside. That probably sounds harsh. But that's the way it is at the poker table. If you don't believe me, then you're the lamb that's going off to the slaughter."- Stu Unger
No Limit Hold'em. Hours of boredom followed by moments of sheer terror. - Tom McEvoy Poker is not a game in which the meek inherit the earth.-- David Hayano (1982)
Anyone have a guess? :)
I'm thinking about winning a big poker tourney. Not just cashing, not final tabling, WINNING. And you know what they say, If you're not in, you can't win.
I can win. I'm smart, I'm devious, I'm crafty and I work very hard at whatever I do. What I'll be doing very soon is going to Atlantic City.
The Borgata Poker Open is happening in AC in September and I just picked the game I'm going to play. It's called The Black Chip Bounty tournament, so named because the bounty is a black ($100) chip for each peep you knock out. Right up my alley.
I plan on treading very carefully and then BOOM. I know I can do this, I mean I did it a couple of weeks ago, didn't I? Plus I'm very excited to be going to Atlantic City and The Borgata, which is giving very low room rates for those playing in their Poker Open.
Originally I thought I'd be able to fly into A/C, play my tourney and fly out with no problems but I could find ZERO flights to accomodate me. WTF!
But then a HANDSOME STRANGER came to my rescue. He told me to fly into Philly and he'd pick me up and drive me to AC. He might even arrive on a white stallion, I don't know!
It'll be fun to play a little poker with him in addition to playing my tournament. I figure I'll relieve him of all his disposable cash on Monday and then play the tournament on Tuesday.
I can't wait!! I'm listed as a winner on FOXWOODS WEBSITE, so the next step is the Bortgata's. Then onto Vegas to kick Grump's butt.
