Hey, wouldn't Absinthe Rolls be awesome with turkey and gravy?
In other news...
In the past four major tournament series he's played (two L.A. Poker Classics and two Legends of Poker), our fellow blogger Absinthe has made at least one final table in three out of the four series. You'll recall, he won Event #1 of the 2006 L.A. Poker Classic for a tidy sum. In the 2007 Legends of Poker, Absinthe chopped a big event for a nice score.
Last night, Absinthe clawed his way to another final table of a $545 No-Limit Hold'em event that started with more than 500 players. He did this after running into aces twice after they were in the money.
As he made the final table long after I was already in bed (and about the the time my kid was waking up), I'm not sure of his chip position relative to the table. I'm also not sure of the payouts beyond point. Regardless, it's another final table where he is guaranteed to at least quintuple his money.
So, here's to a blogger who consistently gets it done.
A quick post from Lafayette, Louisiana.
Uncle Ted and I are watching "Hardball" on MSNBC. In about an hour we're headed to the rehersal for CJ's wedding. I'm working on about an hour's sleep after last night's good times in New Orleans.
I flew in through Atlanta with Ted and Badblood and, because Ted is a mega frequent flyer we had the whole red carpet service to a rental car and a quick drive to the Harrah's downtown.More in this Poker Blog! -->
I haven't sat at a poker table in... well, I don't know how long. That doesn't mean, however, that I haven't been playing poker. It's a game of poker that doesn't involve cards or chips, but there's still plenty of bluffing, and I definitely have to know when it's time to fold.
In a little more than a week, I will be married. Less than a month later, I'll be starting a brand new job in a brand new city. Oh... and I'll be a first time homeowner.
How's that for a multi-way pot?More in this Poker Blog! -->
Just home from the GOP debate in Myrtle Beach. The only thing I trust at these redicuous shows is the "Spin Room". At least the name is honest. I think it's funny that I now know more people at these events than at any local poker game.
I was in a meeting at work the other day with a pair of young producers. We were reviewing a note sent by a co-worker who added in his typical way, "It's great live......or memorex". Both producers then asked, "What is Memorex?"
When my boss explained that "memorex" is a kind of audio cassete, one of the two twenty something girls noted, "I've never had a cassete player".
