Total pot 4330 | Rake 0

Board [Jc 6s 4s Jh Ts]
Seat 1: maigrey (small blind) showed [Js Tc] and won (4330) with a full house, Jacks full of Tens
Seat 5: FatTabbyMama showed [4d 4c] and lost with a full house, Fours full of Jacks

Maybe it’s just me, but I personally think the phrase “lost with a full house” should never be in the poker lexicon.

So that stung a little. As Adam so nicely put it, “You ARE running bad”. And he wonders why I’m not exactly jumping at the chance to play in his $150 tournament Sunday.

Following that, a side game opened up at the .05/.10 tables, and we soon had a waiting list 5 people deep, featuring medical professionals, a soon-to-be-in-Vegas chick, poker authors, and CJ. Since it was clear we weren’t going to be sitting anytime soon, we created another table and were fortunate enough to be joined by a dwarf and another famous writer.
Always a great time to play with Wil, and he live blogged the game and tourney. The 7:17pm entry is my personal favorite. 😀

I also now have a crush on the neighbor who passed me when I was outside with the laptop and dog, and upon hearing that I was playing poker with Wil Wheaton, said “SERIOUSLY????? That is so cool!!”. Yea, he got a party invite.


I keep listening to the Death Cab for Cutie cover of “Earth Angel“. It’s on repeat. I think it’s really annoying the cat.


I’m noticing a disturbing trend here in blogger-dom. First Gene, then Drizz. Everyone has to gang up on the Texans now??? Oddjack gets a pass cause that’s pretty much their job, and at least they put up pretty pictures of David Carr in their posts. I’ll let you guys in on a little secret, just cause I love ya. The Texans ALWAYS win for my birthday. 2002? October 27th (the blessed day itself) – WIN. 2003 – loss on 10/26 but win the next game on 11/2. 2004 – October 31 – WIN. So, in keeping with the pattern, a win should be coming next Sunday, vs. the Browns. Place your bets accordingly.
