Nice returns

by BSN

I've taken the last 6 weeks or so off from poker. Just no desire to play, and I learned long ago that when I don't want to play, I shouldn't play. I lose every time, otherwise.

Tonight, I wanted to play, and won my first SNG. Always nice, but I usually do well when starting back in from a break. It's always the same - I play nice and tight and stay away from fancy-play syndrome.

Newbies, the key to low-buy-in poker is to play ABC poker. There's no secret to it. I'm not giving away any secrets here, every poker blogger reading this post will tell you the same thing.

Anyway, it felt good. I don't know if I'll want to play tomorrow, but it still feels just as good to take down an itty-bitty SNG.

Mr. Fabulous Shocks Big Slick Nuts!

by BSN

So, here's the thing: I never ask other people to tell me what to think. I weigh information, make a decision, say something brilliant or brilliantly stupid, and move on.

But... this... this... I have to admit, I don't know...

Some background: I've met non-poker-blogger Mr. Fabulous a couple times. We've eaten red meat together. I like Mr. Fabulous, he's a friend of mine. He's a BRILLIANT humorist.

But I can't figure out how I feel about this - it's either incredibly tasteless or absolutely brilliant and ought to be spreadin' like peanut butter. I don't think there will be too many people stuck in the middle on this one. I know I'm not alone, his groupies are about evenly divided, also.

I had a couple-days heads-up, and still I'm... wow!



What say you?

TV poker and dwarves

by BSN

While watching episode 3 of ESPN's main event coverage, I giggled a little when the camera hit Chris Moneymaker's father and Norman mentioned how he gets angry when he reads what the blogs say about his son.

Really? Why?

We're just a bunch of misanthropes. We hate everyone equally. No need to be offended.

Then, as the crowd enters the tournament room at the start of episode 4, the camera hits, ever so briefly, on a dwarf. Who knew?

Speaking of which, I was at the movies last weekend and hit the restroom as I was leaving and one of the stalls was opening and there was a dwarf, trying to take a piss. And having a difficult time of it, trying to get up on his tiptoes and all. The idiot in me was having a terrible time with holding in the giggles. Felt like a Seinfeld episode. I tried to get a picture with the camera on the cell as we hit the parking lot, but Mrs. Big snatched it away.

So, I'm like, twelve years old, I guess.

Poker tables at CardroomSupply.com

poker tables at cardroomsupply.comby BSN

All I could do when I saw the poker tables at Cardroom Supply is whistle - sweet, sweet, sweet...

You can start off with a simple folding table-top that's pretty affordable, or if you've got some of that Neteller payout moneypoker tables at cardroomsupply.com burning a hole in your pocket, you can pick up my baby over here on the right.

CardroomSupply.com has a wide range of tables at a variety of price points. In addition to the two tables that booked the spectrum of tables in their inventory, there are folding table hold 'em tables and dining room tables in a variety of configurations and styles.

There's also a good selection of poker supplies and accessories, like poker chips, chip cases, cards, tournament tables, and even those drop boxes dealers use to hold their toke.

Just once, I want to host a home game with my buddies and pull out a drop box and see what the reaction is!

There's also some good deals when you dig deep into the site and start checking out combos and clearance items, like this 3-table, 3-chipset home poker tourney package.

They also have free shipping on all orders over $100, so you aren't going to have to worry about some big surprise when you go check out. Check it out.

Subliminal Poker

by BSN

Now, why didn't I think of a subliminal poker song to listen to while I play? To think I've been wasting all my time with BuddyDank Radio...

A crazy game of poker in Iraq

by BSN

There's something like 58,846 videos on YouTube with Crazy Game of Poker by O.A.R. as the music. I know, because I counted. No, really.

This one is the best:



Great to see these folks having a little fun in the armpit of the world.

Can you still not find what you're looking for?

I don't know what this says about you people that you come here looking for this stuff, or what this says about me that this blog is coming up in these searches.

But my vote is that there's a bunch of sick bastards reading this RIGHT NOW!
