Random Blog...Take 2

I had a moment so I sat down to put up a blog. I have been working my ass off so I decided to sit down on this Friday/Saturday night and play some sng's online. I thought I would just sit around...cook a chili since its cold outside...and win a few dollars on Stars in the LLSNG's...$3.00+ .40. I know.....I know....its weak but hey. I am trying to play within my online bankroll since it is not as easy as it was to just "Pop some" money online.

I think it was a mistake...The hands are below.

Yeeeeeeaaaaaaaaa...I think I am going to pass on anymore SNG's tonight.

I went to Shorty's Saturday night for a nice in at 5pm and cashed out at 1am a winner. I am at the Hilton Hotel in Lafayette and I am fixing to throw this PC out the F'ing window as it keeps locking up on me. I will post about my live session later. I just can'tke this crap anymore...sorry.

Random Blog

I wanted to put up a blog this weekend as if you'll have been watching the UIGEA know we are on the fasttrack to getting hosed. If the Obama camp and the rest of the Dem's can get this thing turned around, I may switch party affiliation. I am that pissed off that now that Macain did not win the election, they decide to fasttrack this through the system. That just sucks for us poker players. Join the WPA...Join the PPA...Join anything associated with fighting this bullshit. Call and e-mail your elected officials. Get in their grills and let them know who you of their constituents.

Thanks and a shout out goes out to "Sheetmetal Phillip". He dropped me a line and I could tell he was just as passionate about this nonsense UIGEA bill as Bill and I. I am going to go ahead and post up some links from the e-mail Phil sent me. Below is where I cut and pasted from his e-mail

"There are also links on the PPA website to email your congressman/senators regarding the issue and a phone number to call the federal reserve. I am just trying to do my part to save online poker and protect our rights. Thanks and next time your down this way hollar at me and we can grab a beer

Most recent UIGEA news:
Pocket Fives Thread with Instruction on how to get your voice hear:
And of course PPA:"

Thanks Phil...Hope to be back down that way soon.

Look for some more updates soon as it looks like we have lots of Gulf Coast Poker Players burning it up. Cub scored a 1st...Gabe is still on fire...shit...dude stays on fire. Tim H just went deep at The Venetian and made it in the top 5...we will get you guys the specifics when we chat with them.

I went out to Harrah's last night and got to see "Juicey". He was dealing a little late. I burned a couple of hundo's in 4 1/2 sucked. I was not happy with the the way I played but I also got a little unlucky. The night was a roller coaster of ...buying in for $200.00...and let the fun begin. Hmmmmn. Noone here I know that's in our circle when I get there...not even the "bueschewacker". Damn Joe...where ya at? haHaHahaha. 30 minutes in in, I flop 2 pair against a set with no improvements...miraculously I don't stack off there. I continue to just play solid poker and try to get my money in good. The best hand to talk about was a possible Jackpot hand where I missed out on 12k. I raise to $20.00 with KK from OTB and got 2 callers. I only have about $65.00 dollars left. The flop hits AsAh3c. They both knuckle to me and I ship it thinking that I didn't put either one of them on an Ace here. They both call. The turn hits the 4s and they both check but the river brings a sweet Ac. I jump out of my seat thinking..."COME ON...HAVE AN A-J/A-Q/A-K....COME ON". They both knuckle and show nothing...I drag the pot. Oh was close.

My Main Event final table comments...I have 2.
1) the hand that Dennis Phillips played with Ivan where they held A-K vs A-Q right at the onset...was probably one of the worst hands I seen played in quite some time, and I can't believe that Norm Chad took a shot at "The Oracle" there. “Dennis should sue his coaches for malpractice!” WOW...not a good plug for his consulting biz.
2) that sick ass hand where the 6d came on the river for a one outer ...I wanted to smash my laptop and hey...I wasn't even in the hand and I wasn't playing on Stars...sure looked like the "sickass shit" that happens online though. ;-)

As far as my online play this weekend. I continue to get it in good...and get smoked. I know that I am posting up hands in Low Limit MTT's, but when you sit in front of your computer for 4-5 hours and lose like still sucks. I hope to make a step up online soon...I am just still spooked about all the online hi jinks that came out this year.

IP Poker Classic Day2

Well, its now Saturday at 12:30 am, and since I am here typing on the computer, most of you will figure out that I did not get into the Main Event. Pretty discouraged by it, but I am pretty pumped as Wild bill did get in. He was not a lazy SOB, and he got up this morning @8:30 to get down there to play in the last satellite of the megas at 9am. I did not...did I mention something about lazy SOB's? I only have 10 minutes left in the room so I figured I would throw up a blog while I download the latest pokerroad radio and all strategy.

Damn...Bill just came in to get his stuff on break and he is down to 7000 in chips. We chatted about a couple of hands. He has lots of play worries.

I am not overly happy with my play over the last 3 days. I was in a position in some cash games where I got up quick and became spewey. I played way too many hands, and I was just not happy with my play. I have a long way to go if I think I am going to be making multiple final tables like Monk. Monkey made the final table in the nooner and the 2nd chance event yesterday. We happen to be bullshitting with him when the text message came through that Cub has snapped off another 1st place...I think in Oklahoma. Wow!!

What else...Shout out goes to "Big Dan" from Atlanta. We got to drinking on Thursday night and had a blast. I also got to talk to a local guy here that plays real solid that I have played with on numerous occasions in the Gulf Coast area. I think we were on a final table together several times in some of the daily's down on the coast....Philip whos family owns a sheetmetal I guess I can just call him "Sheetmetal" Phillip? .... anyhow...great guy and a solid player. There was also "MIT Bob, RIP...the usual suspects...although I did not see Bert????

Who else...John from Baton Rouge was playing great making multiple final tables...we hung out with Justin from B.R also...he will rule the poker world once he finishes Medical School...Hopefully he will stake me ;-)...T.K made an appearance for a beer just to check things out last night. I will have to figure out a way to buy those floor seats for a Hornets game. That F'er has 2 season tickets for the Hornets...2 rows up from the floor...right behind the bench. He told me you could hear the interaction with the coaches and players...that is sweeeeeeeet.

oh to check out...hopefully I will get some pics also. Not sure if they are going to let me or not.

IP poker classic day1

Got to the IP Poker Classic yesterday to play in the $240.00 nooner, and had a good 30 minute conversation on the ride up with SPR. Nothing pass the drive time better than talking about poker. I have more and more respect for the poker playing friends...We are on the virge of hitting something big. Looks like Monkey may be the first though as I got to sweat him as he got 2nd place in the tourney. The Monk is on fire!!!!

I bubbled the event. We were down to 12 players and we were playing 6-6 with me on one table and Monkey on the other. They were paying 9, but I think everyone new that 10th place would be payed out. So technically, I was not the true bubble boy, but it hurt just as much. The hand that I busted out on ...I played it so bad I am ashamed to even post it here. I busted out of the 6pm re-buy event with 2 tables left again...this one was more like 18 people left. They were paying 6. I busted out of both events were my opponent held A-A. It sucked.

I got all my buy-ins back in the cash game though.

Headin back out to play in the 4pm satellite. I know Bill and Reid will be here also. time for a quote

Poker stuff...and the 200k Gaurantee on Stars

Decided to throw up a quick blog while I grind out the 200k guarantee on Stars. This will either be a short blog or a verrrryyyy long blog depending on how I run...or play. I snapped off 2 small SNG's last night and then played in a satellite with FPP points to free-roll into the 200k-G. I won that and then watched "Red Dawn" last night in reference to the upcoming election. I am kind of curious how the election will go Tues as I predict a McCain victory...How will the people respond when this happens...we will see. We are officially 3 min to kickoff and there are....uhhh...only 20,000 people in the tourney. Thats all....just 20k...Yeeeaaaaaaaa. I will try to put all my tourney comments in italics...first place is 23k

Congrats out to Monkey for snapping off the Halloween event at the IP. We don't know how much he won as we are not getting any updates from the IP's Media Partner. We don't know who that is but we havent been getting the updates like we did for the last IP Classic...I will talk about that later. I thought it was pretty cool that Monkey could find a Monkey/Gorilla suit to take his winning pic in. Again...way to go Monk!!!

Bill and I chatted about the win last night, and we were both ...kind of jealous that our schedules are not allowing us to get out to play...and miffed that we were not there to sweat/cheer Monkey well as indulge in some snappers. 200k update...went up to $3200...back down to $2900. Nothing big...table kind of tight....I thought this would start as a jam fest. For some reason..My GCP avater is not showing either(In my best TeddyKGB voice) ..."I feel so...Unsatisfied"

Back to the IP. We swapped some emails with Ronnie and Jim about what could we do help advertise the tournament. We were told they already had a media outlet handling the tournament, and we understood that. We went back to them hoping that we could work out some way to work together were they could advertise on the site. We have been trying to get to the lady at the IP that handles the advertising for some time now....but she would'nt return our calls. First level over...I am at $3000. The reason I am saying this is because of all the e-mails we have received from our readers saying, "There is a tourney going on at the IP...Did you guys know that?...if I had known about it...I would have went". So...all of you who sent Bill and I e-mails wondering why we did not tell you about/have a story on/banner up...Yes...we did know there was a tournament at the IP...We are going to it...We did have a story on it several months ago. Down to $2500. Since Bill and I were planning on going and playing in the tournament...all we really asked for was a room comped so Bill and I could stay. Oh well...Hopefully they will work with us in the future...who knows.

Our plans are to head there this Thurs/Fri/Sat/Sun and try to get in the ME...which is Sat. I was talking to someone to stake me but it fell through. I think Bill has a line on a stake also. Hope to see some of you there. Blinds now at 75-150...I am at $3500.

What else is happening...Oh yea...I pulled a small live session at Shorty's Thurs night when I was coming back from work. I was driving home from Lafayette, and I decided to stick my head in to see who was there and what was happening. Watching "Crimson Tide" of my favorite shows... The game was just jumping off 8 handed, and I grabbed $200.00 and grabbed the 4 seat as the tiltin Texan was in the 3 seat. Played for about 2 1/2 hours and cashed out with $325.00...Now at 4k in 200k...The thing that Tex and I both notices was the terrible play at the table. There was a guy in the 1 and 5 seat both had 1k in front of them...and I watched both them make blatant errors and mis-plays ...blinds at 100-200...I now have 3.5k...I have had AA once...thats it.

Waiting to see the blogs from Wild Bill and Goondingy. I know they both went out to Harrahs last night. I also think Southpaw Rounder was out there also. I think Dave and Bill were at the same table....Just broke AQ and flopped 2 queens...I hope that they had some good stuff to talk about. We are on our first 5 min break...I am at 6.7k...blinds going up... avg chip count is 5.6k....we are down to 13k players.

Will be in Baton Rouge Mon and Tues night. Will probably head on over the the Belle and fire a couple of bullets. Anyone in that area give me a shout. Can't wait to get back i some tournaments
though. I see that Juicey has put the Harrahs structure up...Blinds going up...Im down to 5.4k...avd 6.7..I have A-Qo ...won it. Just got a double up now at 11.5k...We are now down to below 10k in players.

We are now on the 2nd 5 min break...I have 11.3 k...avg stack is 17k...blinds are at 600-1200-125...we are 100 or so from the money.

What else is happening... "Crimson Tide" is over and now I am watching "Romeo and Juliet". I kind of like the way they did that movie myself. Based in a sub-real world of a made up California...where they used pistols instead of swords and they were still able to keep the Shakespearean dialogue. Although, the part about Mercutio being a cross-dresser is kind of creepy.

We are now...literally...on the bubble 3882 are payes and we have been H4H a 3883. They dropped like flies until one off the bubble...hilarious. "BUUBLE HAS BUSTED"...I cashed. Get this structure. 1428th -3882st gets $23.55 now...361st-thru 1427th gets $ penny more HaHaHa
so the next pay jump is at 360th up to $44.11. I am now up to 20k...doubled up with QQ vs A-9
blinds are up to 1k-2k...I need to make some moves...2k players left out of 23k.

OK guys....I am so pissed off right now I am going to cut and paste the last hand it up...and thats a wrap. There were 2 people at the table who wrote "OMG" in the chat box
right now the avg is 43k
