Thought of the Day

I bet if I started a Facebook group named "I GOT SCREWED BY THE FULL TILT RNG" it would have 356251324123 members by Monday.

Stupid rigged internet poker.

I know I only had a 96.5% chance of winning when the money went in, but give me a break one time okay? The ONE time I play a fool perfectly and get him to commit ALL his moneys with just TPTK...

Edit: Then again, I just now saved a stack - folded 33 to a re-raise, would have flopped a set but lost to a flopped set of 9s ... and a rivered set of queens. So unbelievably rigged.

This is kinda weird.

Playing a turbo MTT on Full Tilt. 5 minute levels.

I did not pay a blind until the very last hand of level 2.

Nine and a half minutes of free poker!

Paid To Play

If you're into such things, Full Tilt has come out with another bonus offer for some random group of customers. Be sure to "Check my bonus offer" under the Requests menu in the Lobby to see if you qualify and to opt in. No deposit is required and I think it's up to $100 with 30 days to clear.

Thank you FTP, now if I could just win a major MTT in the next week or so I could still find a way to join the bloggerati in Vegas.

I ended up watching nearly two hours of the ESPN broadcast of the November Nine last night.

You know what? As I was watching I actually felt like playing poker again. You could say that my interest was re-kindled. Revitalized. Re-something.

The power of television.

Of course I fell asleep before it ended, but now that I'm awake again I'm ready to go punch a few donkeys.

Thinking back, I don't think I have watched a broadcast of anything poker since some time in the Hachem year which is what, 2005? No wonder I've been increasingly poker apathetic.

Nine November Donkeys

Good lord. The suckouts and awful play are astounding.

If you want to read about guys making $1 Party Poker MTT moves at the final table of the World Series of Freakin' Poker, follow along at the Tao of Poker. The good doctor has you covered.

So sick.

[Mostly O/T] Flux

It is amazing to me how fast time is slipping by. The year will be over before we know it, and good riddance. 2009, GTFO.

I was rather looking forward to playing a little online fake money poker last night. Didn't happen. The usual impediment - a flaky internet connection - shot that idea down and I ended up with a book instead.

The November Nine will be reduced to one world champion some time in the next few days. I don't care very much who wins, but it would be a good thing for the game if Phil Ivey did. Or maybe I'll root for Joe Cada since he's from Michigan.

If I'm reading between the lines correctly, the president is today going to sign an extension of the new home buyer tax credit - with expansion to include a juicy tax credit for certain buyers who aren't 'first time' purchasers. I have to say I'm pretty happy about this, if only because I hope it'll stimulate demand a bit. Inventory around here is pretty out of balance with lots of sellers and not many buyers. Of course with everything else happening (20% unemployment, tight credit markets) it might not make a difference at all. But for sellers it's a small ray of hope.

The winter gathering of bloggers is about a month away and related posts have started to pop up here and there. If you're on the fence about going, go. It's not too late and you won't regret it.

Last and most certainly least, stay classy wal mart shoplifters.
