This afternoon I'm playing in my monthly poker league with L&BM. It's the last game of the year so it is significant as it's the last chance to get points before the big game on Superbowl weekend. After today's tourney all the points will be talleyed and money given for which place you are in. That money goes to the big buyin of the superbowl saturday game. Last year I ended up with a free roll, and I'm pretty sure I'm on track to do it again, although I won't be in first place I don't think.
Speaking of first place, the football challenge is finally over. I beat Waffles for the week, but he won the whole shebang. Biatch. lol jk Very well done, sir! There were many weeks that Waffles and I were apart by only one point, but there were a few other weeks that I sucked big time and it was too much of a deficit to make up. It was fun playing with his kiddos too. (his wife scares me tho) Anyway....I probably owe his son $20....maybe more, but his son owes me two drawings. He owed me one previously and now he owes another for this week. As soon as I am in receipt of said drawings I will ship the money. Tick tick. I suggest drawings of any Boston Red Sox player or even the logo. Perhaps the Pats or even the Bruins logo. A drawing of Waffles would definitely be good too. :) Waffles please make these suggestions to your son. Also, ask him if he'd like to barter up. Instead of $20 he could get a baseball autographed by Jacoby Ellsbury, or Jason Varitek, or Pedro Martinez. I mention this not to save money. These baseballs are much more valuable than $20. The authentic baseball alone costs more than $10, and it comes in a case. Anyway, his choice.
Funny story: I sent his son $$ once and in the envelope I also enclosed my very josie business card - just for a little pizzaz. heh. I didn't think that was all that inappropriate, but um, Waffles wife did. lol I think she said I was sending the kid porn. LOL That's probably not good. Below is a picture of the front and back of my business card. That's not porn, is it?
I spent most of yesterday watching Tony play a $109 tourney. He won his entry in a free roll so he was playing this for free. He was incredibly patient in the beginning and was kind enough to tell me what his hole cards were when he was in a hand. He played really really well, except for a few isolated hands. There was one hand where I didn't know what he had....the flop was J-10-9 and he jammed all in and got instacalled. He flipped over 4-4 and he was up against K-Q. Doh! Turn was a Q and river was a K, so they split.
Anyway, my main objective was to keep Tony on even keel and to stay focused, which I think I did, until that last hand. Again that last hand he didn't tell me what he had before he shoved. If he had I would;ve been sending a FOLD message, but he didn't. Instead he shoved with ace 3 in early position and got called by AK. Grrrrr Regardless he won over $400, and as easy as it is to be judgemental about the push (and I am) and be an arm chair quarterback, I know it isn't easy when you're making decision after decision in the eye of the storm. It's far easier to judge when you don't have that kind of pressure on you for your every move. Tony did outlast more than 1,000 people so CONGRATS TONY!!!
