BOOOO !!!!!!!......

Have I ever told you how much I love Halloween?

Everything about Halloween gets me so pumped up !!! Something about it makes it my favorite holiday of the year!

In fact I got so excited about tonight, I had the maid come over a couple of times!

I love how most guy's get all wound up about the spooky stuff around this time of year too! I mean come on guy's! It's not like there's REALLY a meat cleaver killer around every corner you know! Jeez!!!!

Halloween is the one time of the year I really struggle with all the treats too!

So hard to keep my hands of those damn treats! But I think I've got a solution this year. I'm going to do everything in my power to avoid all that sweet candy!

I really start to get pumped up over Halloween once all the kids start showing up!

As Riggs would say, seeing the kids in all of their wonderful costumes gets me, "all jammed up!"

I just think it's so unfair that Halloween can really only come but once a year you know? Seems like the perfect holiday to me, and I think it should be more like a couple of long weekends throughout the year or something!

Yeah, I love Halloween!

Poker vs. Me vs. Blogger....

Something random running through my squash....

I've actually found a NLHE game that it just may be possible even I can be profitable at. (waiting for laughter to subside.................)

So I have a bizarre dilemma! Do I or don't I tell all my friends? I mean, I love to write and tell stories and this blog is supposed to help me get them out there. But do I really want the added competition, in a game that's happy to send $ my way?

WOW !!!! That's a toughie!

On the one hand, it's an awesome feeling to have "BamBamCan" on a small winning streak and actually making, (rather than steadily losing) a few bucks.

On the other hand, that's not Bam-Bam's prime objective.
I have "The Office" for that. Bam-Bam is for blogger get-togethers and good times. Bam-Bam is for gathering material to put up here in my little corner of the intertubes, so that you readers have something to laugh at every day.
(Be it meant to be funny or not)

Bam-Bam is a $1, $2 or $3 NLHE SnG junkie. He's a $3, $5 or $11 blogger MTT Donkey, just waiting for his next set of Aces to get cracked by the ultimate double-gutter that everyone at the table but him can see coming. Bam-Bam sits down on a Saturday afternoon knowing full well that he's about to play Omahahahaha with Pauly and the gang, despite not having a fuckin' clue how to play it. Bam-Bam frequently tosses out $10 or more, just to sit at a virtual table with some invisible friends for a little while and he really enjoys getting to do so. Bam-Bam is a Monday night TuckFard and damn proud of it too! Bam-Bam is NOT supposed to make money! BamBamCan was an investment in futures that was designed to fail and for the most part, he has done his job well.

I already have another place and another entity that is incredibly lucrative, as well as secretive. And it shall always remain that way no matter what. Does Bam-Bam need to keep secrets now from friends, so that BamBamCan can lose his little fishie on Sharkscope? Is it THAT important to me all of a sudden?

I see it all the time. Every blog, (including this one) has put up stories of success at some point in time, only to post later about "doom switches" or "jinxes" at a little later date. So tell me, what do I do with my current cash cow?

I find myself seriously perplexed.

Often while at the office, I find myself taking screen caps that I want to put up here to say, "HEY! Look at me!" But I don't. I don't for a very good reason and I can manage that side of all things pokery with nary a hint of animosity, or jealousy from a Bam-Bam perspective. That side of me is in total control at all times and the Bam-Bam in me, is just mighty thankful for the monetary support. The Bam-Bam in me did however take several screen caps over the last week or so, and is in some serious turmoil about what to do. Do I or don't I put them out there for the masses? The masses that would love to get in on the action.... and make these games their own personal bankroll builder.

What kind of a friend does not share a place where money can be had quite easily? But then again, what kind of poker player just throws money away once it's been found to be readily available?

For now my friends..... It's really not you, It's totally me!

My sincerest thanks for dropping by....

Always flush twice....

Here's a tale of two flushes. One that went very, very good!

And one, not so much!

That was my first Royal in Hold'Em on-line. I went on to win that 45 player MTT and improve my comfort level with NLHE, just a little bit more.

The second Flush against TheGoatlady well, that was just a sick 6th. ST ! In that hand one four was already folded and as you can see, De AXN eD has one of the three's beside me. That leaves a two outer as a probability for the boat of three's and four's. Not likely, but possible. I had to really calculate the odds of my Flush not being good there. But the problem is her hole cards and betting pattern. With two of the Aces showing and at least one two out of play, the only reason she can be betting in this spot is if she's good to the high. Perhaps it was a busted low that just keeps on getting prettier and prettier, as more cards come into play. I wasn't about to take that chance. I folded as I told myself, "she has a pocket pair down." Mercifully, I was shown the hand and was spot on with my read.

Last night's TuckFard games were a hoot as always! (Well for some of us. Sorry about that run brudder Carson!!! Rough night!) And Fred did make his inaugural appearance. Rough start for him though, busting out in 15th. of 16 that made it out for the fun. He did get his action fix though, as his stack took massive swings both up and down in that first 45 minutes. I was obviously a little too focused on his table and how he was doing, as it took him getting busted before I even remotely focused on my table. I final tabled, but just couldn't believe how awful the cards were. I think maybe Queen_K might have actually had worse cards than me, as I'm pretty sure she only played 2 or 3 hands all night. I then made a play at Memphis with a suited 7-8 that he insta-called me on. Turns out a pair of eights was good! That was enough to get me by a few of the ever increasing blinds. Then I couldn't wait for cards to come with the stack I had left to work with, so I made a move and got picked off. Well not really picked off, more like brutally anal raped by way of suck-out from a two outer kinda picked off. Yeah, that covers it! I see our Russian card-rack friend won it all, with Belgium's Heroneus taking second. Also congrats to the lovely SuzY_Q for her cash in third place.

The HORSE game was well, a Horse of a different colour! The cards didn't change all that much for me, but my timing was right on the nose. I managed a few descent hands here and there and worked my stack up to a respectable size. Then I played a bit of a waiting game, sitting out all of the crap I was dealt in limit Hold'Em and most of the Omahahaha. Then I made a charge though the RAZZ and STUD portions and built my stack up to a double pile. I lost one fairly large pot in the STUD H/L and had to start the process all over again. I ended up money-bubble-boy, as I just couldn't wrap my head around Halface getting hit with the deck, four hands in a row. But he did and my second best was just that, second!

I see cem cashed in third and that's always nice to see! Also a shout out to Scotty for making an appearance at the game. Much appreciated good Sir! As always, muhc and Memphis both made the show and I always greatly appreciate that they do. This group is really starting to make Monday nights, one of the best nights of the week for me. Now if we can just get The Doc to make it in on time for once instead of being our super-railer, all things will be right in the world! ;)

Also a quick apology to IT. I was hoping to make it into the LPRT game last night, but knew that I'd have to late register. Not sure what happened, but I'll be damned if I could even find the game!

My sincerest thanks for dropping by....


A lot going on in Youranus....

This is Part II, here’s where you can find Part I if so desired.

Fair warning, this may be PG 13 “butt,”

“In the end,” please remember that the sole intention of all information you are about to read is nothing, “butt” humour!

= = = = = = =

As earlier promised, I’ve managed to take a really good look at Youranus. It’s time to let you all in on the good news. Youranus is good to go! We’ve crammed a lot into Youranus over the last few months, but we really think you’ll appreciate the extra effort we’ve put into it.

Firstly, the traveler’s welcome centers turned out WAY bigger and better than I thought possible. I think it’s safe to say that once visitors are done in our information centers, they’ll be dying to get into Youranus! And did you notice I said, “centers?” That’s right, there’s one at each entrance into Town! Now visitors to Youranus can learn all about it as they enter, no matter what direction they are approaching Youranus from. How cool is that!

Our crack team of marketing geniuses, have managed to attract dozen’s of the World’s industry giants to town. As originally planned, KY has entered Youranus and all seems to be going incredibly smooth from the get go. They also hooked on to the right people over at Hershey’s and seriously, what a coo that was! Knowing that they were looking for someplace to set up their largest production facility to date, our guy’s went out and sealed the deal! Of course it was only natural to rename the extension coming up from the South, The Hershey Highway and I’ll tell you what, we were damn proud to do it too!

Sticking with industry, I just can’t say enough about how happy I am that the Mercedes-Benz family of companies has come to town. Their facility is the perfect fit for our environmental plans for Youranus. This plant will be setting up for production of the SMART car. Once the really ramp up and start pounding them out, look for a lot of SMART’s in Youranus. You can ignore the rumour that production of a second car the FART, could be coming to Youranus too. I have it on pretty good authority from some reliable inside sources, that no one in the organization is at all excited about FARTs coming from Youranus. Apparently there are some emissions issues.

Still another major employer in the region, will be the fine folks from Wonder. It’s reported that once the facility is up and running, 70% of the nations Whole Wheat bread will be produced right here. Amazing! I’m told it’s an incredibly good source of fibre too and to be honest, that alone has got Youranus pretty darn excited.

Lastly, but definitely not the least, the SourPatch Kids candy factory is up and running at full potential. If you look around town, you can really tell too. That’s right; Youranus has been puckering ever since.

The Casino has been such a huge success. With screams of “PAI GOW” emanating throughout the halls, as players constantly feel like they’ve hit the jackpot in Youranus. To no ones great surprise, the line-ups at some of the games can be pretty darn long. Just the other day as I was sitting at a table, I noticed they were lined up two and three deep. I think we’ll have to open up a few more tables in the future, as it seems everyone wants to Let-it-Ride in Youranus. Surprisingly, (to me anyways) the Texas hold’Em tables are incredibly popular down there. Apparently it’s a big game with the younger lad’s, as they take a buddy down to Youranus and play Hold’Em together. I’m really not sure that I get it, but if that’s how the younger generation rolls, who am I to say there’s anything wrong with it?

With that I think I can almost complete the latest update on Youranus, except for a quick note from myself. As the guardian, Mayor and remember, the first ever visitor to Youranus, I’d like to remind you to try and do your best to keep Youranus a little cleaner. Please remember our motto at all times and do what you can to prevent anyone from having to see any crap around Youranus.

= = = = = = =

On the Poker front, the TuckFard games go once again this evening and there is a rumour with some pretty strong evidence to support it, that we just may be joined at the tables by none other than Fred tonight! So watch out for the handle, “BarBill” and say hey if he actually decides to join in on the fun. As always the NLHE game runs at 7:00pm EST on Fulltilt and our HORSE game, starts shortly after at 8:00pm. The password for both is donkey.

My sincerest thanks for dropping by….
