Rizen Like A Phoenix From Arizona

I don't want to scare anyone, but I actually played poker last night.  Not only that, but I cashed.  I finished 5th in the bofonkey  blogger tournament.  It's the first time I've played a blogger tournament in quite a while, so I'm happy with my finish.  I really wasn't expecting much so making the final table was nice, but cashing was even better.

I had Rizen at my table and didn't even realize he was the bounty until people started chatting about everyone going all-in when he was down to a forced all-in to go after the goods.  He never showed up for his own tourney, so it made for easy nabbin' of his bounty - or so I thought.  The first time he was all-in and I had a chance for take it, I had an open ended straight draw and ended up sharing a losing straight with Numbono as we both were ousted by a higher straight from Rizen.

During the next orbit I again found myself with a chance to take the bounty when I got it all-in against 4 players with the best hand of 8-8.  I didn't expect to win that one at all and was not surprised to finish with the 3rd best hand, thus missing out on the bounty.

Moving on...

I still haven't played live poker in ages.  It was killing me to get the email invites for this knowing I couldn't make it.  I'd give my third testicle to go play some live poker, especially with some friends I haven't seen in a while, but it's just not in the cards this go around.

It's late and I gotta roll...

Until next time, may the felt be with you.

Jerry Douglas And The Return Of The Person Of Interest Glasses

Going to see this guy in concert tomorrow night and I'm pretty stoked...

This is also him with Bela Fleck from a long time ago...

Those glasses in the video above take me back to my Bad Blood New Years Day Tournament attire earlier this year...

Speaking of New Years day tourneys, we going to have another this year BadBlood?

Until next time, may the felt be with you - and the dobro be with me...

Y'all FAIL

It's extremely hard going online and not reading blogs or the latest
news, but I am trying to avoid news updates per my previous post.
Things will be back to normal tomorrow.

In the meantime, here is a nice FAIL my buddy MTW came across while in
Boone, NC this past weekend. In his words, "Slang FAIL."

That is all.

Me Fail Posting? That's Unpossible!

I've sucked at posting lately, but I've at least been trying to read
as many blogs as possible. I've decided to also suck at reading for a
few days. You see, I would like to enjoy the final table of the 2008
WSoP without already knowing what happened this past Sunday. I've
managed to avoid the media and poker blogs so far and I figure I can
make it one more day; thus, until further notice, I must peace out.
I'll be back soon.
