Yup...... I won the home game Friday night! I can only assume that some type of sympathy card was being played. There's just no way skill had anything to do with it! Now of course, the deck did smack me in the face for most of the night. :)
What a blast we had Friday night! Can't say thanks enough to everyone for coming over and creating about 8 hours of total distraction and hilarious laughter. We had a scream as is always the case, when the group of us get together. DonKaaa, Queen_K, Suzy_Q, Carson and Y......... You're all the best and we both love that you're always there for us.
It was mostly a Hospital weekend for us, so I didn't get to watch all of the Ryder cup Golf that I wanted to. But for what I did see, all I can say is HOLY CRAP ! It's been a very long time since anyone in Golf has seen that many fantastic shots, under such extreme pressure to make them. From the back-to-back hole-outs from the bunkers by Jiminez and Weekly, to Paul Casey answering Hunter Mahan's stuffed shot on the 208 yd. Par 3 11th. hole, some of the shots were just un-believable. For those that just don't get watching Golf on T.V., it's really too bad. That was some of the most incredibly competitive Golf I think I've ever seen.
Saturday night, I wanted to play a little but knew I wasn't really at my best. So I fired up a few $1 and $2 HORSE games and did my best not to Donk it up too much. I ran into muhc for a few minutes, as he mini-railed me while waiting for his own game to start. I'm not sure which one of us was the drunker, but as long we were both in the "proper" shape to read the garbled crap we were writing, it really didn't matter. :) Good to see you there muhc! There's been a real streak of me pulling Quad's lately in HORSE games. It continued with three different Quad hands in two games on Saturday. Here's the 1st. Quad's of the weekend. The best part of this hand was, we'd just switched over to STUD from RAZZ, where I'd just gone to the wheel in 5 cards. I was dealt A-2-5 with the 3 and 4 coming on 4th. and 5th. streets. I was very fortunate that another player had hit to a 6 on the same hand.
I didn't win a lot on Saturday night, but considering the state of sobriety, (or lack thereof!) I was in, I'll take the two wins and a 2nd. place finish in the three games I did play.
With Peb's heading down to Atlantic City Tuesday, we'll be back at Fred's side tonight, so I'm pretty sure I'll have to sit out The TuckFard Open NLHE game at 7:00pm on FullTilt. (P/W as always is Donkey) I am registered for the TuckFard HORSE game at 8:00pm though, (same site, same P/W) so hopefully I can make it back in time to see who I blind out to. If you can make it out, it sure would be great to see you there. I was thrilled to see the honourary Tucks, cem and muhc had beaten me to registration. That'll help motivate me to get there for the game!
Oh yeah, and my BASH plans are all complete, as DonKaaa, brudder Carson and myself will be starting our journey into insanity come Thursday morning. The three of us should be making our grand entrance into The Pub for cocktails, sometime Thursday evening. Pebbles should be getting into town Friday evening, as her stint down in A/C will be over around 4:00pm. I just need to work out the details to get here there now.
My sincerest thanks for dropping by....
