April 11 – Cliffnotes Of Updates

Comments off 500 Views0


My bad on the lack of updates for the last week. My friend from college ended up driving out here (from NY) and was crashing here for the last few days. Was nice to see him (even though I did see him not so long ago at Hoboken St. Paddy’s day. But most of the time spent not working was spent either eating out or being out and about in Vegas. Made for a good week/weekend…but now I am super tired, lol
.
I also ended up seeing Kurt and Pfapfap the other day. They were randomly in town for a day or so, so we went over to Grand Lux and grabbed a quick dinner. It was a lot of fun catching up, playing Chinese, and discussing poker stuff. We actually spent about 1/2 the meal discussing a single hand from my latest SUPERLAG Video, which kept sidetracking into other spots and such. I love higher level poker discussion =) PS, if you go to Grand Lux, get the shrimp scampi imo…daaaaaaamn good.

Also went and played some live over the weekend. My friends wanted to play some 200 and just shoot the shit…so I obliged as that environment is always a lot of fun (and even more so with beer!). Ended up making a BI or so…being very social, loud, and animated. My favorite hand of the night was this:
.
4 limps to me in the BB with 87o and I check
.
Flop: $10 – Js 9c 6h
.
I bet $7, 1 fold, CO raises to $22, and it folds back to me. The CO had been a lil aggro v other people, but we had yet to tangle. The CO was also a lady who seemed hell bent on using her being a female to her advantage. I called with intentions to take away sometimes on the turn. She had about $225 to start, and I covered
.
Turn: $54 – Qc
.
I check, she bets $32, I CR up to $87, she hems and haws about me having hit a straight (LOL at thinking that I would ever hit a draw), and timidly calls after about 1.5 minutes
.
River: $228 – Ac
.
I bet $101 (leaving a few bucks back just to confuse her) and she quickly folds. She was not happy when I showed, lol
.
Other than that I was pretty spot dead. I went 0/11 on catching TP with anything QJ+, but got paid on 2 sets…so I really can’t complain over a 6hr session. I also got some disc golf in yesterday which felt really solid. My putting was pretty off, but my D has gotten a lot better from lifting. I’m hoping I can stretch out to 380ft by the end of summer…but we shall see.
.
And on that note, I have to go coach. I have 3 students today, and a day off tomorrow (which will be spent working of course). Hope all is well!
