This One Time...At Borgata Camp...


I did something this past Wednesday I haven't done in a while. I was dealer in a 2/5 NL cash game at my buddies place. I used to deal at his house every Wednesday up until about 6 months ago, but once wifey was pregnant I felt it was time to take a break from the dealing gig. The extra money from dealing was nice, but there were more important items to attend to...mainly taking care of the family. And I must say, while I've missed playing live tremendously, I haven't missed dealing a bit. The feeling was reinforced this past Wednesday as I will explain in a minute.

The only reason I agreed to deal was the host is having a $100 buy-in tournament on Memorial Day and he said he would pay my buy-in if I deal for a few hours. He and the other guy that took my place 6 months ago are pretty burned out on dealing as well so me being there was definitely a good thing for them. I ended up dealing for a little less than 5 hours and now I will be freerolling at the tourney. That, my friends, is a good thing. He's also having a cookout prior to the tournament so it should be a good time. I think I'll just continue to be a substitute dealer when need be and use the extra dough to pad my bankroll.

Moving on...if you read my previous posts you know they warned me at the last WPBT event for using the word bastardos in the chat box. A tad much considering it was a private tournament and bastardos isn't even a word. Well, they've done a number on me again with my picture choice. I was growing tired of this pic, which was my original choice when I joined...

It's a pic of the Hamburger Pimp, a character in the sweet ass movie Dolemite. It was a good fit for me, but I was ready to make a change. So, I decided on this pic (resized to fit the PokerStars pic space) a few days before the last WPBT satellite for the WSoP event #2...

I felt like this was a great choice considering the pic I have at the top of my blog. Easy on the eyes, no doubt. By the time the WPBT event began I was still without a picture as they had yet to approve my choice. That bugged me cause I hate the plain gold background. A few days later I received the following email...

Hello TripJax,

Yeah, I'm sure my image choice would offend so many people who play online poker. There is no nudity, no vulgarity, no nothing. Just a lady in a bathing suit. As my 4 year old son would say, "No Daddy That's Gay." Indeed, son, indeed.

So, after searching and searching I couldn't find anything I really liked, but decided to go with this pretty cool bottle cap...

Decidedly less cool than my main choice above, but oh well. If you see the Jax Bottle Cap be sure to say hello, although I've mainly been playing heads up matches so not really much chance to see folks while playing.

Well, I think I'll go ahead and play a few matches before going out on the town tonight. I haven't gone out drinking since my 30th birthday so I'm looking forward to getting out. In the meantime, don't you just love heads up matches like this...

During current Hold'em 1on1 session you were dealt 6 hands and
saw flop: - 3 out of 3 times while in big blind (100%) - 3 out of 3
times while in small blind (100%) - 0 out of 0 times in other positions
(0%) - a total of 6 out of 6 (100%) Pots won at showdown - 5 of 5
(100%)

Still that's not the quickest game I've ever played heads up. Nothing like making some quick dough on the first hand. Gotta love that.

Gonna end this now, but I'm really looking forward to the tournament on Monday. Top 5 pay with 1st place paying $1100. I like my chances. I probably won't post again til after that game, so hopefully I'll have good news to write about. Considering it's a freeroll for me, I won't have the concern of losing my $100 buy-in so I should not have to worry with making a wrong move for the wrong reason.
