Holiday weekends are the best. I'm sitting here eating an early lunch, after getting in a quick eighteen holes -- fifth day in a row I've gotten out there. Nothing beats being the first group off. If we hadn't had two rain delays, I would have been home by 9:30.
I got in a quick Omaha/8 SnG with Bob on Friday night after taking a quick 10BB off a loose/passive 2-4 table.
Saturday featured an impromptu run to Trump Casino in Gary. (You can read a quality trip report from BG). First time I'd ever been there, obviously. Not a bad room, quite a few tables and yes, the chips are every bit as filthy and disgusting as you may have heard.
The real purpose of this post is just to mention how much maigrey rocks. She pretty much owns Trump of Gary, and it was pretty funny to watch all the dealers do a double take as they came in (limit? what are you doing playing limit?). Nobody I know plays 3-6 limit (with a full kill) with as much panache. What I wouldn't give to be able to play loose-aggressive that way (at least at a level higher than Party $0.50/$1.00). BG had a great run and I donkeyed my way around to a winning session with some marginal hands, but Maigrey had that table dominated. I have to say I was pretty zoned out -- getting up at 5:30 will do that -- it was still a lot of fun.
All this, plus a cookout and fireworks still to come? Cool.
