NotAPokerBlog: hey guess what?
ThePolemarch: What’s up?
NotAPokerBlog: my Spring Break just started, and yours is ending
NotAPokerBlog: *evil laugh*
ThePolemarch: Cruel
ThePolemarch: So cruel

The snow has decided to wait until Saturday after midnight. So as long as I leave Austin by noonish, I should be good. It’s 11:30 pm and I haven’t packed a damn thing. This is typical for me. Hell, I’m still doing laundry so I’ll have clothes to wear next week. It’s been in the 80s here…the adjustment to the 20s is gonna be…fun?

Fred is planning all sorts of poker goodness. I am a wee bit scared/overwhelmed. I keep reminding myself that live players are different than online, but still. I know I’m my own worst enemy in these situations; I lose my confidence. I was of course just kidding in my last post about the whole “I’m a pro, I have a blog” thing, but maybe it would be good to take a certain amount of egotism with me. There must be something to be said for the fact that I spend an awful lot of time thinking and reading about the game, right? Plus, it’s a pretty blog…it’s red…

In anticipation of Sunday’s tourney (have you signed up yet???), few of us cool kids spent some time at the Razz play chip tables at Full Tilt tonight. (What? You play this game for money? HA!) I of course bring you the highlights –

TexansBaby: i have no idea what i’m doing
SirFWALGMan: me either
SirFWALGMan: this is lowball texas
SirFWALGMan: flushes and straights dont count
TexansBaby: like at ALL?

TexansBaby: yay you!
GameC: I win one!
TexansBaby: one of us should

TexansBaby: he won b/c he had an Ace, right?
SirFWALGMan: prolly
TexansBaby: lol
SirFWALGMan: Ace = Low
TexansBaby: you are so freakin helpful
TexansBaby: where is Felicia when we need her?

Dealer: GameC shows 8,7,6,5,2
Dealer: TexansBaby shows Q,7,5,2,A
Dealer: GameC wins the pot (25) with 8,7,6,5,2
GameC: Ship it!

TexansBaby: ummm
TexansBaby: what about quads?
GameC: lol
TexansBaby: they worth anything?
GameC: That’s generally bad. . .
TexansBaby: can i take these cards to a NL table?

And that was just us “pros”. Although really, it was just Sir and I who were the fishies. GameC there is quite the sharky, let me tell ya.

Then we were joined by some random people (names changed to protect the innocent)-

TexansBaby: thank you
TexansBaby: see Sir…we’re spreading the word about poker
TexansBaby: isn’t that what WE DO?

Yea…watch out Sunday folks.

Business should continue as usual here next week, although…expect to see some pictures of snow. Because I am a dork from Texas. But you love me that way. 🙂
