Are You Kidding Me?!

25 AUG 06

I am tired today. Why, you ask? Because I was up until after 1 am sweating my wife in a Party Poker freeroll tournament.

Roll that one around in your brainstem for a bit.

It was one of the most frustrating things I’ve ever watched. The way she plays makes me nuts. Limping from the button with pocket pairs in an unraised pot.

Every time.

She also limps with AK and AQ.

In fact, she only raised preflop twice that I saw, once with pocket Aces (Wow. So brave).

Her restraint; however, was incredible. She folded QQ preflop to a maniac I’m sure she had beat and she (correctly) folded KK post flop when she correctly read a moron on Ace-rag.

The stats are mind boggling.

16,400 players to start. That’s not a typo. Over sixteen THOUSAND players in this thing.

Top ten get paid REAL CASH.

Everyone else? Bupkis. Nada. Zilch.

She took 7th. $40 for zero investment. Try calculating THAT ROI, Mr. Sklansky! Un-friggin-believable.

Congrats, babe. I’m going to take a nap.

Thanks love! I'm tired too. But forty dollars richer. And like I said . . . take that Chris "Jesus" Ferguson. $1 into $20,000 is a 2,000000% return . . . $0 into $40 is INFINITY!!!!!! So I'm much better off on a relative basis.

Had it not already been well on its way to ending, I'm sure my husband's attempts at learning how to play would have been the death of our marriage. Gotta love it when the traditional arguements are replaced with "What the hell are you doing playing that from early position???"

Tread carefully my friend. :)
