Poker Weekend

It was a pretty good weekend as far as poker was concerned.

  • 2nd in a $20
  • 1st in a $30
  • 1st in a $10
  • Lost a couple of $20 and $30 tourneys
  • Made a bit of money in the $2-$4 10 handed games

The ultimate result of this was to bring my account that was at $80 up to $250, which is sweet. The reason it was at $80 to begin with was that I was at $450 or so and cashed out a bunch of it in order to finance the purchase of some new golf clubs.

So if I continue along the same line, I’ve turned my $50 deposit into $700 at this point, which ain’t that bad.

  1. My word the internet is dumb… check out this fucking gay thing I, w-whazz:

    With Valentine’s Day approaching, it’s a good idea to pay more attention to your mug. Is your pucker pitiful? Does your smile brighten, or frighten? Take this quiz to find out if your lip lock is love-worthy.

    1. Your nickname is:
    “Chappy” because your lips are always chapped. (Score = 1)
    “Pigpen” you always have stuff in your teeth. (Score = 2)
    “Pearl Drop” your teeth are sparkly clean. (Score = 3)
    “Hot Lips” because they’re so kissable. (Score = 4)
    “Hal” as in Halitosis (Score = -1)

    2. Which oral hygiene items are in your medicine cabinet?
    Cold sore cream. (Score = 1)
    A complimentary toothbrush from my dentist (still wrapped). (Score = 2)
    Whitening strips, organic toothpaste, hemp toothbrush and floss and fancy mouthwash. (Score = 3)
    Quality toothpaste and floss, a state-of-the-art electric toothbrush, a tongue-scraper and organic lip balm. (Score = 4)
    What’s oral hygiene? (Score = -1)

    3. When a woman wants to kiss you, where does she aim?
    Hand. (Score = 1)
    Forehead. (Score = 2)
    Cheek. (Score = 3)
    Lips. (Score = 4)
    She doesn’t. (Score = -1)

    4. Valentine’s gift you’re most likely to get:
    A multi-pack of lip balm. (Score = 1)
    A super-sized box of toothpicks and tooth towels. (Score = 2)
    A box of white chocolate. (Score = 3)
    A big smooch. (Score = 4)
    A case of mouthwash. (Score = -1)

    5. Which magazine best describes your puss?
    Sports Illustrated. (Score = 1)
    Food & Wine. (Score = 2)
    GQ. (Score = 3)
    Playgirl. (Score = 4)
    Outdoor Life. (Score = -1)

    Less than 0: Guh. Your kisser’s a scary place, making you anything but kissable, dude. Get thee to a dentist immediately. Or at least brush!

    0-5: You lack curb appeal. Your mouth may be fine on the inside, but the entry way (your lips) is so unappealing you’re probably turning people off. Invest in some good-quality lip balm and see if your kissability doesn’t improve.

    6-10: You are what you eat. And she can see every bite you’ve taken. Clean it up and improve your smoochability. Then do a quick search here to find a lip-lockin’ love.

    11-15: You’re certainly fastidious about your teeth and breath. Just make sure you’re not obsessing about them.

    16-20: Mmmmmmm. Your mouth is nice and clean and your lips are soft and kissable. Pucker up, big fella.

  2. and I like how it says “with Valentine’s day approaching”

    this was on the MSN mail page today…

  4. Madison Area whazzers: Saturday is Alona’s birthday. Club 5 is the place to be; the Old Man will be in attendance. I’m going to feed him tequila. Be there or be square.

  5. GOT HOMIES WITH 415 TATTED ON THERE HANDS BEFORE THEY’RE AREA CODE CHANGED TO 510

    for some reason, that quote reminded me of whazzmaster.

    I thought both of these were funny because after not playing for about 2 months and reading up on hand statistics, pot odds, how to keep your head on a short stack and many other topics in the poker world, it seems to have paid off (oh yeah like in the first hand a bad beat here and there doesn’t hurt either).

  7. RC – I just saw the happy couple at the Starbucks on the Square, so I got Paul and Amy’s address. I also impertinently asked when they were going to have some babies.

    That’s your punishment for getting married: obnoxious people like me badger you for babies.
