Commence Spew Mode

Here's a summary of last night's poker. Call it 'The Idiot With the Hammer and the Level 38 Opponent Play'.

No, I'm not using a convertor for the hand. Screw that. There are no innocents to be protected. This is the MOOKIE.

PokerStars Game #5860457406: Tournament #29532314, $10+$1 Hold'em No
Limit - Level III (25/50) - 2006/08/09 - 22:36:15 (ET)
Table '29532314 6' 9-max Seat #7 is the button

Seat 2: surflexus (4007 in chips)
Seat 3: BobRespert (3493 in chips)

*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to on_thg [7h 2d]
Well, what do you know. The Hammer. On the button. I've played three hands in thirty seven minutes -- AA and two random hands from the blinds. Bobby Bracelet is raising every hand, winning lots of small pots and occasionally losing a big one. Maybe I'll get some respect.
Bone_Daddy84: folds
surflexus: folds
BobRespert: raises 100 to 150
Did I mention Bob was raising every hand?
Marxst1: calls 150
No respect for Bobby's raise.
kaellinn18: folds
Go time!
on_thg: raises 400 to 550
Drizztdj: folds
jjok: folds
BobRespert: folds
Marxst1: calls 400
*** FLOP *** [Jc 4c 9c]
Marxst1: checks
on_thg: bets 754
I know it's the Mookie, but I'm going with the Hoy. Maybe I can represent a big club draw.
Marxst1: raises 266 to 1020 and is all-in
Okay, maybe not. Oh well.
on_thg: calls 1 and is all-in
*** TURN *** [Jc 4c 9c] [Ks]
*** RIVER *** [Jc 4c 9c Ks] [Js]
*** SHOW DOWN ***
Marxst1: shows [Kc 2c] (a flush, King high)
on_thg: shows [7h 2d] (a pair of Jacks)

I respect someone who can commit 11x the BB and more than 1/3 of their stack preflop, out of position, with K2s. No wonder Marxst1 won the damned Mookie.


I'm scrambling around trying to get caught up at work, since I have to go to Minneapolis next weekend for a wedding. This could very well be the first time in years I've gone without venturing down to the Midwest's finest poker room, Canterbury Park. I don't think I can convince them to spread $0.25/$0.50 limit.


Get over to For Peyton now and get yourself some cool poker stuff. For a good cause and stuff.

I'm such a shill, but at least I'm shilling for a good cause.


Knocked off Rick Reilly's "Shanks For Nothing" last night. Quick read. Not great, but amusing enough -- we'll call it three stars out of five. It's a sequel to "Missing Links", which is without exception THE funniest book involving golf and gambling ever written. I'm serious.


Huh, I didn't have much to say after all. Time to go back to getting WSOP updates.

Gotta love opening it back up the next day to see who won and noticing the guy making questionable calls is the one who won. Online poker is rigged.

Also, glad to know that you noticed I raised every hand that wasn't already raised to me, regardless of position. I was on Full Tilt Tilt.
