Now Is The Time For All Good Men To Come To The Aid Of Their Family

Now Is The Time For All Good Men To Come To The Aid Of Their Family

Like Jordan, I'm headed to the beach tomorrow, however I'll be staying all week and he'll be starting his new job on Monday. Good luck to you J. I'm not sure which beach he's going to, but the TripJax family is off to Myrtle Beach. We've gone to the same place the last three years, a cozy little mom and pop hotel in Cherry Grove, but we found out this year they'll be tearing the place down in December. So we'll have to come up with new plans next year. We're bummed cause we really like this place. To the left is a pic from the Cherry Grove pier which is next door to the hotel where we're staying.

I've talked up this vacation for a while for three reasons. One, I really need a vacation. It's been quite a while since I've been able to put work on the backburner. Two, the fam really needs to get away from Greensboro together for a while. I've been out of town a few times on business trips or with buddies, but this will be the first time this year we can all get away together. And three, the vacation is being fully paid for by poker winnings. I still can't get over that. I know there are critics who say I shouldn't dip into the poker bankroll for non poker stuff, but man it feels good to give back to the family after working hard to grow the roll. They've put up with my hours of online and live play and now I can give back a little as a thank you. I've often used poker winnings for family stuff, but never to cover a whole vacation. Pretty damn cool.

As for poker, I'll be taking a vacation from it too. Yes there are casino boats in Myrtle, but I have no plans to go to them. I had planned on taking some books on poker to read - like the Stu Ungar book, or Barry Greenstien's new book - but I decided to take a full break from poker, so no books either. I should be well ready to get a game on when I get back, so look for me at the tables next weekend. Gotta pay for vacation next year ya know.

Last night I played two matches towards the Heads-Up Challenge and got my ass handed to me in both. The first match was against the aforementioned Jordan and he took it down within the first 10 minutes or so. The big hand where we (or rather I) ended up all-in was interesting. I called his all-in and had the best hand with a pair of kings, however, his A J sooted had about 134 outs with flush draws, str8 draws, and the Ace over. The turn brought a J and the river brought another J. That wasn't exactly how I figured his outs would win it for him, but outs is outs and he outed me. I typed in the chat, "Hey, I thought I was supposed to get the TripJax!" Oh well.

The next match was against Mourn and I don't remember a whole lot about actual hands, nor do I remember the final hand. I do, however, remember it being a very good match and ultimately being outplayed. I was impressed with his play and hope I can get another crack at him in the 2nd round, should we both be lucky enough to make it.

Played with Kipper and GCox as well last night and had a good time at the tables with both of them. Thanks for keeping the night interesting for me guys. At one point, I told Kip I was off to spend my last $2 on a heads-up match (just cashed out) and he wished me well and continued with his SNG. I waited a few minutes for a challenger and suddenly I was placed at the table with none other than Kipper. That was cool of you to come join me for my final match of the night Kip. I know it's tough to play heads-up on two different tables so I appreciate it. Oh, and thanks to you too Pete's Wicked Ale. You may not have helped my game, but you damn sure were tasty.

Well, that's about it for me. I have one last 1st round match against DNasty and I hope I can play it before heading out tomorrow morning. D, hook a brotha up. Drop me an instant message if ya see me online. I know you are internet challenged for a while so if you can't then no sweat. Guys, if it gets to the point where that game is the last one of the first round and the 4 will already be set no matter what happens in that match, then by all means continue on with the next round. If I make it into the 2nd round, I'll be ready to play when I get back. If I don't, then I'll be ready to railbird. Still, I want to play out the game with D no matter what...wouldn't have it any other way.
