Poker anyone?
« on: January 13, 2013, 10:42:44 AM »
We held our first Texas Holdem' tournament yesterday at the post.  We only had 24 players but it's off to a good start.  Not bragging, but I brought my "A" game and ended up winning.  $280 was a nice little profit.

And since I had to be there early to oversee everything, I decided to throw a couple of dollars in the penny machine.  I didn't even realize why all the symbols were spinning all goofy like until the word "JACKPOT" appeared.  It was a $430 jackpot.  I should have left and headed to the new casino we now have in Columbus. ;D

I won enough to almost cover Miss Lily's surgery.  That win loosened up my budget enough to allow for a couple of outfits this month afterall.

I'm a Hold Em fanatic.

When i was in Vegas a couple months ago I hit the tables really hard, and did very well. I then bombed out of a large tourney, so I went to Margaritaville and got hammered.

I played online Hold'em (real money) for years until the feds shut down all the off shore online casinos and seized everyones playing accounts.. The feds still have some of my money  >:(

I'm thinking about going to Wendover in the enxt couple months, Its a small town in Northern Nevada and the rates are amazing and you can get a flight and room pacakge for 3 nights for $219. Check it out.

Ps- a good site to play Hold'em is https://www.goldennuggetpoker.com/english/# It's play money but you can win free stays at GN Las Vegas

I think it was around 05 when it became illegal in the US to play for money on-line.  I won quite a bit more than I lost.  I might check to see if I can still login to my old accounts.  I played Mansionpoker, pokerroom, and a few others that I can't recall.  I still think it's BS if people want to spend their money that way.

Ohio never allowed gambling, including casinos until recently. It finally dawned on them that residents here could travel less than 2 hours in any direction and find an out of state casino.  All the bordering states have them right at the borders. 

I love the riverboat casinos.  We have several to choose from, all a short drive away.  I'll check out that free online site, but it's not as much fun as playing for real money.

I'll probably hit the Columbus casino soon, just didn't feel like fighting the crowds when it first opened.

That's what we did for extra credit.  Just not on campus.  Cigarettes and alcohol weren't even allowed on campus, so I can only imagine if we had been caught with anything harsher.

It's been about 8-10 years since I was in a regular poker game. 

When I used to live in Hells Kitchen, a couple and I became friendly and they invited me to join their regular game.  I showed up with a six-pack thinking beer and pizza, and was greeted with strained smiles.  They had Hors d'oeuvres and (very nice) wine.

Once I got over my faux pas I had the best time.  Played almost weekly with them for two years.  It was always nickel, dimes and quarters (I would show up with a 2 cup Pyrex measuring cup with change every week) and was never about the money so much as the get togethers.

The faux pas was bringing a six pack versus a wine.  This was a gourmet foodie poker group.

One a related note, about a few months later one of the hosts had a birthday/poker party.   I asked his partner what I could bring and he told me to bring a dessert wine that his partner loved.

I went to the liquor store the next week only remembering vaguely that the wine had a name similar to a planet.  I spent about 30-45 minutes looking around when the owner* asked if I needed assistance.  I relayed the wine name was something like "Uranus" and he started to laugh and immeaditely found me a very nice bottle of Sauterne

Iggy, that was actually their error if they made issue with what beverage you chose to enjoy while playing a friendly game of cards.  It wasn't a sit down, black tie dinner party.  A true host/hostess would graciously put your drink of choice in the fridge and move on.  Especially true if the invite did not offer details as to the menu.

A casual get-to-together usually dictates that everyone brings their beverage of choice.

Ohio also has state liquor stores.  It can be a pain in the arse as you usually have to drive quite a while to reach one.  A few years back, we were having a pool party and it was discovered that we needed a specific alcohol and I was chosen to go get it since I made the mistake of not drinking that day.

I grabbed some cash and made the 45 minute drive to the liquor store.  I had been going there for a long ass time time as you can't buy wine anyplace else.  Their little SOB clerk ID'd me.  He had seen me coming there for years and I called over the regular manager who apologized and said he couldn't do anything since the clerk has already asked for my ID.

I made the long trip again just to grab my wallet.  Upon returning, this same little twerp didn't bother asking for my license.  That made me even more furious.

Been there done that.  :O

Bill was great friends with this couple that I despised.  They would always bring an expensive bottle of wine and explain the nuances of fine wine to me.  I saved one of their wine bottles until their next "visit" and filled it with my cheap ass shit.  As I was enjoying my boxed stuff, they were espousing how great their bottle of wine was compared to mine.

It was one of the few times I actually enjoyed their company, sitting there all smug in my knowledge.

It wasn't that big a deal to be honest.  Just a little realization that my PBR tastes don't go well with homemade  mini-kerplach and smoked salmon barquettes.  They are really sweethearts (the whole group) who just use the porker game as an excuse for being social and eating!

I'm guessing it would also have been a faux pas to bring a box of white zin. ;D

The two most annoying things for me about the state stores are how far apart they are (there is none in Downtown Charlotte btw) and that you can not buy wine in them.  NC has been talking about privatizing them for a while but I don't see it happening in the foreseeable future - we still have dry counties here!

The county I'm from is dry.  Meigs County is so freaking rural that it's ridiculous.  It's a good 3 hour round trip to buy beer.  After we moved up north, I'd regularly take cases of beer when returning home for family functions.  My cousins thought it was an awesome trade; a case of beer for a huge bag of Meigs gold.  WIN/WIN for everyone. ;D

Wow - 3 hours to buy beer!?   Charlotte luckily is not dry and is actually developing a craft beer scene here.  There are about 4 local breweries (Old Meck is my favorite) and there is talk of us getting growler dispensers in the supermarkets.

And the really weird part is; we could look out the front window across the river and pert near see the store.  We had to drive clear down river, cross the bridge, and drive back up river.  And then Rinse and repeat....lol

Speaking of which; since tonight is my regularly scheduled guys night of cards, time to get my nappy in.  Y'all have a great day.

We lived with my southern Baptist preacher uncle for a while.  Even when not living there, our social lives revolved around his home.  We weren't allowed to play cards, even without gambling.  We weren't allowed to watch Golden Girls or Benny Hill either, as they were evil.  Wonder Woman showed off too much skin, even though she was forced to wear panty hose under that bathing suit.

Funny the things people like him worry about.  The poor?  They're just lazy.  Anyway, I got a late start with card games, so I suck.  Well, I do often win at pass the trash.

It means that I had "in house" sommelier advice 24/7. Plus a lot of free wine from distributors that were trying to get on her wine list, a list that I must add won "Best All Spanish" by Wine Spectator magazine for the entire US.

It means that I had "in house" sommelier advice 24/7. Plus a lot of free wine from distributors that were trying to get on her wine list, a list that I must add won "Best All Spanish" by Wine Spectator magazine for the entire US.

Just as I thought - short bus kinda "spechul".

By the way, I forgot to mention I'm currently stepping out with an ebony beauty from Nigeria.

I watch all the major tourneys.  WSOP is my ultimate goal.  $10,000 buy in and all.  Years ago, I played a pay game where you could win a seat to that game.  I wasn't quite the bubble boy, but was only about 30 players from placing.  It took most of the day too.  If I remember correctly, I still won a decent payout.

Did I mention how hot I think Daniel Negreanu is?

Heading out to play another tourney at the local FOE.  I don't usually do very well there, but we'll see.
