In Reverse

Remember in my last post, how I wanted to win at the poker tables to get a little added income to wager on sports?

Remember how I got coolered by pocket jacks vs. my pocket kings and lost almost everything I had on bodog?

I've now decided that since bodog is letting people wager on NFL games for the minimum of $1.00, I'm going to do the opposite of my original plan: sports wagering to build back my poker bankroll.

One dollar at a time.

First game is a softy: Indy vs. Houston this weekend. I took Indy outright to win for a $0.95 gain.

Should be a no-brainer.

Heee-larious updates to come.

A Cooler and A Guilty Pleasure

Let's get the poker stuff out of the way right now.

I was playing a $25.00 6-handed table on bodog two nights ago and was nut peddling to turn my $30+ into around $50 for the evening so I could do a little sports wagering. And by nut peddling, I mean I was playing so tight, my balls were in my body cavity.

After an hour or so, I've turned $25 into $35 mostly by hitting flops hard from the BB or seeing them cheaply and hitting from the SB. I'm feeling pretty good about my play at this point.

I'm dealt KK in middle position. It's folded around to me. I pop it 4X the BB, and see it fold around to the BB, who re-pops me. This guy had been playing a ton of hands very loosely, and although at these modest levels, I can't really see him protecting his twenty-five cent blind, I know that he's willing to play almost any two.

I push. He has me covered.

He calls.

The flip? My KK vs. JJ.

The flop is 9-7-2 rainbow. Sa-weeet!

Turn is a blank, and I'm about to do the pee-pee dance because I'm so excited, when...

of course...

a Jack spikes on the river and sends me on full-on-evil-robot-chubby-mega-tilt.

I'm out my buy-in plus $10 on a total river rat cooler and my dreams of making millions on football wagering are down the drain.

Oh, and I'm almost broke on bodog now.

I owe all three of you who still read this blog $1.00.


And now for something completely different.


I picked up an 80g iPod from a sales contest a work last month, and I have but two words for it:

Holy mother of god shit.

It's amazing. It's black and beautiful (same way I like my men as well, btw).

Here's the guilty pleasure part.

Joe Speaker has been posting about Kings of Leon, and he offered a challenge. He said that if anyone truly hated the new KoL album, he would pro bono a buy-in to the Mookie. I really didn't care about the buy-in, but was interested in listening to KoL because I'd heard such great stuff about them critically.

I hated it. Absolutely, truly, scratch my scrotum from its sack hated it. Sorry Joe.

On the flip side of the token, I've been playing out Panic! At the Disco's "A Fever You Can't Sweat Out".

I love it. Love it, love it, love it. It's been critically reviled for the most part, and moderately successful commercially (for the genre).

I just can't put a finger on why I love it so much, but I've listened to it at least once a day for the past three weeks.

Keep in mind, I'm not a emo-fuck. I generally have a distate for the whole emo-punk-pop thing (Yellow Card, Fall Out Boy, Good Charlotte, etc).

In fact here's a fairly good representative of what I listen to (check the playlists in blue on the far left):

There's a ton more on there (I do have 80 gigs, after all).

So my question is: What's your musical guilty pleasure?

I'm not talking Barry Manilow, Neil Diamond, Warrant or anything like that. I'm talking current music. Within the last two or three years.

It's a bit of a ramble, but it's a blog entry, right?

I Am A Freakin' Genius (You've Probably Thought of This Before)

You ever think that you pretty much know all of the "technical" stuff about poker from reading, reading, reading, and get a little bored with it?

I know I do.

Since I can't get onto my only online poker source (bodog) lately, I've been playing a lot of sweet, sweet home game action. And I've been cleaning up.

I had a guy ask me a couple of weeks ago, "How many times have you won this game??"

"A couple of times?", I shrugged.

"A TON of times," was his reply.

And it's true. These little Wisconsin games are no match for my Harrington, Gordon, Waffles fueled mind.

Even though it's NL, I still play ABC NL poker. And I win. And win.

And it's boring as hell.

A couple of weeks ago I decided to switch it up. Not a little bit. A LOT. Like Lindsay Lohan switching up her dating rotation and deciding to go out with SLB.

Yeah, that drastic.

97s?? RAISE.

Ducks? RAISE.

45o from late position? RAISE.

It was fun. It was different.

I did pretty well.

Chasing out the limpers with anything is fun, because with the range of hands I was raising with (3-4 X the BB), I may have been beat pre-flop by a wide margin.

It was $20 for the tourney buy-in. Who fucking cares? I wanted to at least see the extent I could push the table around.

They might as well have been lemmings. A pat on the back and they were over the cliff.

I hit the flop here, missed it there, but being aggressive for aggressive's sake was something I'd never really tried before. And yes, post flop I kept the aggression up, even if I felt like I was behind.

And it was a fucking blast.

Oh, and why hasn't anyone ever turned me on to Vonnegut before??? I just finished Breakfast of Champions, and don't know if I'll be the same.
