Unpredictable

Posted 03-21-09 at 09:28 PM by Invigilator

If someone had told me when I was 15 years old what would be going on in my life when I was 38, I doubt I would have believed them.

The directions that things keep turning has kept my life pretty interesting. What I am getting out of that I don't want to waste any energy trying to predict where I am likely to end up. Sure, I have goals and plans, but some of the best things that have come up for me have been fairly spontaneous.

When I really think about it, life has been good for a long time, it's just hard to see sometimes....

update: With hand volumes that I used to crack out in a...

Beat the worst game in town.

Posted 02-28-09 at 12:20 AM by Invigilator

Tonight I played in a weekly dealers choice game with my Mother-in-Law and her sisters. It's an ante based game that is technically No Limit for everything, but tends to behave like limit.

Out of 7 players, it is common for 5-7 to see the end of each hand. Lots of checking and min betting. Tonight the fare included...

Hold'em
Omaha
O8
Stud
Spit in the Ocean
KC Lowball
