Thanksgiving Eve Drunken Stupor

Got home last night with a very nice alcohol-induced buzz going.

Proceeded to play both ring and an SNG on Pokerstars. Usually I find playing poker while drunk to the bejesus belt is not a good idea. However, I lost the $1 SNG but made +$10 in a .25/.50 ring game. What an easy table.

With that important "task" out of the way I decided to put the laptop down and veg out to some TV.

I woke up to George Clinton playing his new song "Bounce 2 This" on the Carson Daly show.

How I have that melody stuck in my head today. It is one great tune and George obviously is still being very creative. He is one talented man.

"Bounce to this, everybody just bounce to this....

I had my Bailys & Coffee and head off to the relatives this afternoon. I think God invented alcohol so one could cope with out-of-town relatives. :-)

Hangover "Cures"?

Seeing that tonight a great deal of us will turn the drinking volume up to eleven and have killer hangovers tomorrow.....

....anyone have any hangover cures they would like to share?

My favorite is Baileys & coffee.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Scarey Hockey

I've watched my share of hockey games but I have never seen a player go down like Detroit's Jiri Fischer when he suffered a seizure and his heart stopped.

I was absolutely stunned.

Thoughts and prayers go out to Jiri and his family.

Poker musings

For a while I was doing well in SNG's and my ring game play was killing me.

Now I can't cash in an SNG to save my life but my ring game is financing my SBG "habit".

Poker is one tough game.

Easy to learn. A lifetime to master.

I heard 'em, needed new ones & bought 'em.

A good value. They do not need a power source and are easy to pack and take with your laptop.

On Difficult Bosses

My last boss used to micromanage me to the point where I was livid. I never knew how to deal with it. Everything I tried failed. I wanted to present him with a pint of my blood and say, "Here is a pint of my blood so now you can manage me at the molecular level".

What is the best way to deal with a difficult boss?

The Godfather

Every time I run across the classic movie, "The Godfather" on TV I just have to stop and watch it.

I'll never get tired of it.

Francis Ford Coppola is a genius.

No Limit Poker Question

You are the dealer.

You get JJ.

Everyone folds around to you?

Do you raise in an attempt to steal the blinds or just call?
