The Answer is...



Yesterday I wore an argyle sweater with a white shirt underneath, very much like the picture above.  A very boring pullover that my mom had given me for Christmas, thinking it was a good top for work and it is.  Anyway, for the first time in months, I had a poker game at my house last night and normally I change from my work clothes as soon as I get home, but something came up and I didn't.  So the poker guys come over and Gary is STARING at me, mouth agog, because I have the pullover on, or as he puts it, I am "dressed like a catholic school girl".  Um really?  I'm probably wearing the least attractive clothing I own.  Still, he doesn't let up and not only that, Noodles joins in. "Um yeah, you look like a sexy librarian. Oh baby!"  Okay....(for some reason Noodles is creepier to me than Gary)  And then the piece de resistance....I needed my reading glasses to read my kindle, and Gary just about had a heart attack.  "Leave the glasses on. That completes the look."  Guys are weird.

I ended up splitting the first game even though I was the chip leader, so we could move onto game #2.  Gary won came in 2nd for game #2 and got his buyin back for his trouble.

Okay, now for the answer to yesterday's question....

The question was certainly too broad and open-ended as there are so many variables.  Cash or tournament play?  Holdem or all poker?  It's just too darn difficult to pick one person as so many people are better at certain niches.  Yet, pressed to answer I did come up with someone.  My "someone" was based on the barometer I use which is "Is he better than me?"  Now don't forget that I'm a pompous ass so zero not too many people fit into that category, at least people I actually know, that is.  I will concede that Phil Ivey might be better than me.  Maybe. :)

All the players mentioned in the comments did come to mind as well as a few that didn't get a mention, yet I sent only one word to Tony....


DISCLAIMER: The views expressed are that of the author alone and are purely one person's opinion.

Remember this is just one person's opinion.  I've spent a significant time watching him play and left impressed.  Keep in mind, rarely am I impressed.  Just ask Gary.  Plus the reference posts in his blog are better than most published poker books.  And like I said, he might be better than me.  Jury's still out on that one.  He's kicked my ass online but I think I might have the edge on live action.

Hoyazo, on the other hand, disagreed with me and listed a few players that he thinks are better than him.  (funny enough Waffles didn't make his list) The thing is I don't know these people, so they didn't come to my mind.  Edgie, by the way does deserve a mention as he too is quite the tournament player.

So there you have it.  Oh and Gary, I'm wearing my reading glasses, right now.  :)

Play smart like Hoyazo.

I see you opted to go the "blog hyperbola and overstatement" route. Well done.

I vehemently disagree with all statements made in this post.

Josie said...

lol Hoy. That's just until I confirm I'm better than u, although that would also be considered the "blog hyperbola and overstatement" route as well.

Waffles baby, I'm shocked.

Hello grumpy old man! (ken)

It's not rationalizing. If anything saying he's kicked my ass online may be an overstatement as I never did play much with him online. He beat me once years ago, and most recently I remember he went deeper than I in the donkey island mtts many a time. of course I won, but that was using feminine wiles....which leads to one of the reasons i am so successful live - only one reason, might i add. :)

Yes, I can vouch for the fact that Josie is difficult to impress - but I can also vouch for the fact that she looked SLAMMIN' last night in her "schoolgirl with a secret" get-up (though I did have to imagine the sensible white cotton panties). All she needed was a ruler and some rap about me having been naughty and I'd have lost it.

Thankfully I brought my drool bucket. At the end of the night, it had more than drool in it.

Josie said...

@gary, rofl, i'd forgotten that you asked me if i was wearing white sensible panties...

So all the Jewish guys (and the "publics," as we called them) thought the Catholic guys had it made? Let me tell you, those girls not only dressed in those sexy outfits, they ... nevermind ... you can just imagine ... : o )

Josie said...

I was a "public" which I assume refers to the public school i went to.

Gary said...

actually "public" likely refers to your vagina in high school.

Josie said...

lol. I'll have you know that I graduated high school with virginity intact.

This post is really too informative to us, good perception of images and good description by which any one can get information what they want to this post.......As for as my thinking is concerned this one is the best post.

Thanks for sharing such a informative post.

Pullovers for men

Okay Josie can you warn me when you are going to start talking about panties etc.. Might give me a heart attack....Oh and the cathlic school girls I knew (didnt wear white ones) And I knew them well.

Josie said...

lol jbt! I wasn't the one who brought up the panties, that was Gary. WARNING i will speak of them here ---> btw I replied that they weren't white but black.

Since you destroyed your relationship with Waffles with this post I suggest you put on your schoolgirl outfit, with glasses, and find the nearest Jaoanese karaoke bar. Believe me, you will be a major hit.

Josie said...

lol Wolfie, Waffles and I are goot....I hope. Sure we are!
