Manic Monday and a Poker Party

First off, I just wanted to say that this pokerparty is being brought to you by the party poker bonus code 20BR.

Back from a nice long weekend in Ellicottville and I must say I had a blast this weekend. Unfortunately I didn’t get to hit the slopes up at all this weekend and the only real explanation I can give for that is because of the ruckus from the night time. The nights in Ellicottville are just Gong Shows. When we get together and decide we are going to giver, we fuckin giver. We had an awesome time at Maddigan’s and we met a bunch of cool people. Get this, if you go to Maddigan’s you can order a case of Rolling Rock and carry it with you throughout the bar. Now if this doesn’t represent potential for madness then I don’t know what does. All kinds of shit happened and it was definitely a trip you didn’t want to miss. Now the festivities were so crazy on the Friday night that some of the chiefs couldn’t handle another night of it and they had to bail and head home on a secret mission. As the crew says “That’s Embarrassing”! Well the Saturday night gong show was just as, if not crazier than the Friday night. Friday night started off with a bang with some of us playing a home poker game and a few of the other guys went off to the casino. The guys that stayed at the house and played poker got absolutely shit faced by the time it was time to go to the bar. That left the other chiefs who went to the casino with a lot of catching up to do. They definitely did there party in that category. Our boy PaulD caught up and then I’d say he surpassed everyone when he did his Forrest Gump impression by running home from the bar. He did a great job except for the few instances where he ran into a parked car and layed on the ground for about ten minutes, running into oncoming traffic (never a great idea), and then eventually getting pulled over by the cops and he and I almost, and I mean almost spent the night in the Ellicottville Drunk tank. It was definitely a sight to see. There was tons of shit that happened on the Friday night and our stomachs were hurting a ton from recalling the nights festivities on Saturday morning.

Saturday night was absolutely hysterical as well. The Crew got together and we did our annual Kris Kringle gift exchange and we watched the Wild Card Football Games and then we proceeded to the bar. The bar again turned into a solid night which led to a rough Sunday for most. In my case, I felt like shit because I was sick for a week leading up to this fest and then put my body through what I did it was only a matter of time before it says I’m shutting you down. And shut me down it did. I will definitely be taking it easy this week as its time to relax and get things back to normal. Don’t get me wrong I absolutely love to party and everything but there are times where you just have to take it easy. That’s what I’m going to do.

So much poker on television these days! I watched Mike Matusow win a WSOP bracelet on the weekend. He knocked off Hoyt Corkins and Phil Hellmuth in a very impressive victory. Yesterday, I watched Tuan Le win the WPT Championship. Now this was awesome, I have never seen a guy win and lose on the river so much in a final table as Tuan Le. He was going heads up for so long and it just seemed that every crucial hand was won on the river. Definitely a made for television event.

I didn’t get that much poker in at all this weekend. I did though play in the Friday night game in Ellicottville and I finished in second place. I played pretty well this time around and at times I was hanging on for dear life. I was the short stack with five players left and I just kept plugging away and I was playing real aggressive. Playing aggressive and stealing blinds and then waiting for that one big hand to go all-in is what got me into second place. When I was going heads-up I went all-in and if I win this hand I win it all. I had AJo and my buddy had a pair of twos. I put him all-in and he calls and his pocket two’s stand up. I didn’t get mad but I don’t know how many times I’ve had a pretty good hand like AJ or AQ and don’t win. It’s kind of annoying but shit happens.

I’ll end off today’s post with a little bit of humor:

10 Husbands, Still a Virgin A lawyer married a woman who had previously divorced ten husbands.

On their wedding night, she told her new husband, "Please be gentle, I'm still a virgin."

"What?" said the puzzled groom.

"How can that be if you've been married ten times?"

"Well, Husband #1 was a sales representative: he kept telling me how great it was going to be.

Husband #2 was in software services: he was never really sure how it was supposed to function, but he said he'd look into it and get back to me.

Husband #3 was from field services: he said everything checked out diagnostically but he just couldn't get the system up.

Husband #4 was in telemarketing: even though he knew he had the order, he didn't know when he would be able to deliver.

Husband #5 was an engineer: he understood the basic process but wanted three years to research, implement, and design a new state-of-the-art method.

Husband #6 was from finance and administration: he thought he knew how, but he wasn't sure whether it was his job or not.

Husband #7 was in marketing: although he had a nice product, he was never sure how to position it.

Husband #8 was a psychologist: all he ever did was talk about it.

Husband #9 was a gynecologist: all he did was look at it.

Husband #10 was a stamp collector: all he ever did was... God! I miss him! But now that I've married you, I'm really excited!"

"Good," said the new husband, "but, why?"

"You're a lawyer. This time I know I'm gonna get screwed!"
