I learned something on the Minneapolis trip that I think I'll share with y'all:
No matter how much your life may suck, it can always be improved by doing two simple things:
1. Go to Culver's
2. Get a [censored] load of Ketchup on a napkin.
Fries are optional.
Speaking of things I forgot to mention ... I warmed up for the trip by playing a 2+2 forum open donkament. At the end of the first hour I really wanted to get some sleep for my early morning flight, but I kept winning my retarded shoves, including this one -- my 5d4d sucked out on AdKd by making a gutshot wheel on the turn.
At the start of the second hour I flopped quad jacks and two hands later had AA hold against QQ. Suddenly I was the chip leader. By a lot. Haven't been in that position in a long time.
So naturally I ended up finishing second.
