Random Thoughts

You know, I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with them later. -Mitch Hedberg

Saw a little bit of truth in advertising yesterday. Came across an Escalade. Black. Chromed dubs. Big, extra chromey grill, gold pinstriping. Gold exhaust tip. Gold logos, including EXTRA Escalade badges high up on the doors and on the hood. Chromed roof rack. And the Nevada license plate...GAUDY. 'Nuff said.

Saw a nice river re-suckout on FT tonight. I say re-suckout because the lesser hand made his hand on the flop, sucking out the better hand, but the better preflop hand made his hand on the river, re-sucking out. ATc vs. AJs. Flop gives AT the broadway straight. Unfortunately, it included 2 spades. Turn is a diamond, but the river brings the final spade. Of course AT was all in and stayed at the table to railbird and bitch and moan. Thank God it wasn't me.

Finally broke the drought with a 2nd place SNG finish on FT tonight. We're 3 handed and I've got JTc. Big stack easily has me and the other schlep covered (I've got him by about 300 chips), 11000 to 1500 or so. This seemed like as good a place as any to make a stand against a bully. He had QJo. Short stack had 88. Flop comes Txx. Turn is another rag. River is the damn Q spade. The bitch. So I go out in 2nd and make my first cash in some time. And thus ends the random thoughts for the moment.

Ain't it a great feeling to finally make some money again? Now you can just ride the wave back into the black again.

Yeah! Winning rules! If I can win my online accounts back to health, that would be great. Fortunately, I do keep my casino winnings in an online account that's accessible to my online poker sites. It's a nice safety net. Back in Black, baby!

Sweet. I missed the end of this yesterday. Was reading through bloglines and it cut off after the escalade description.

Anyway, good job making some cash. Hope that sets you on a roll.

I don't get how he could bitch and moan. Some people just don't get it...
