Hammer


Click to enlarge (it's worth it).
Thanks to B for putting it together.
_____________________________________________
Last night, I played in a home game in Milwaukee which I originally thought I was told by BadgerBucco was an "underground" MTT in the basement of a Mexican restaurant. It was actually at a guy's house who lives near a Mexican restaurant. At least I got the basement part right.
It turned out to be a 10-person turbo SnG, and it was a blast. Why was it so fun? Because I took that motherfucker down, that's why. I was catching cards, making good reads, truly analyzing the board, calculating odds, and laying down hands when I need to. I have a tendency to be dead money at a live game, but last night everything just clicked.
Also, I got vengeance for this hand (see #1). Same exact cards, different outcome. W00T! Sorry, Josh.
I was dealt aces twice, cowboys once, and AK three or four times. Surprisingly, I was never dealt the hammer. Not once. These boys play something called the "tit whistler" which in its purest form is 74h. There are, of course, different variations, but these chaps played it like aces. And they showed everytime.
After the tourney was finished, there was a cash game that I basically broke even on. Since I'm the worst Omaha player in the world, I lost 1/2 my stack during those rounds chasing draws and/or thinking I had the nuts, only to find out someone else had the mortal nuts. I brought my stack to one dollar over even during the last round of Hold 'em, so I was up all the way around for the evening.
That is, of course, until Josh and I went back to his pad and dronked off $20 or so on SnG's on Pokerroom and Stars. Blah.
Thank God for live poker.

Actually I have been meaning to popularize the shout "Mjulnir!" when one of us drops 72o. You apparently need no introduction to Thor's baby, so your assistance will be most appreciated.
