Humorous short stories..

Saw a couple of old friends this weekend and the more things change the more they stay the same (I'm still great friends with my high school buddies even though we've spread out through the state of Massachusetts) :

We've been drinking buddies for years and he(we'll call him JMan to protect the innocent) has made a couple of the funniest quotes/ are a couple..

Back in high school we didn't have a place to party so we would get loaded and drive around in our cars..not good advice but we did it we're driving and getting loaded and we're pie-eyed by buddy who is driving by the way looks over at me and says "I'm so friggin' loaded I'm glad I'm not driving!"...I'm sitting in the passenger seat and I had to remind him that he in fact was driving at the time!!!

Last weekend (17 years removed from high school) we're having a few drinks at my other old high school buddies house (he basically has a sports bar or shrine to the Boston RedSox in his basement with pool table and stuff)....and we all have kids anyway I asked if he wanted a beer....I didn't know it but he was pouring himself a monster Jim Beam/with a splash o' coke drink...he looks over at me with this liver pickling concoction and says "I don't really see the point in drinking a beer anymore...ya know...does that sound bad?"....fucking hilarious. By the way his wife drove their whole family home so we have grown up a little bit.

Yet another buddy of mine from high-school calls up....he lives one town over from me....he calls and says that his wife bought him a keg-erator for father's day...I'm jealous...

Picked up a new book to add to the library...

Caro's Book of Poker Tells....of course it's a poker book!...I haven't bought any other books besides the boring PC/Computer hardware/software crap for years..

My poker library has now grown to 5 books in all...I'm definately better for them..the guy that wins in Poker and proclaims he "never read a poker book ever!" is just plain stupid. Imagine how much better he/she could be if they actually did read a book like The Theory of Poker.

Poker Tracker stats and low limit hold'em

Poker Tracker is great..but....on the Party Poker low-limit hold'em (bad beat or high hand) tables it simply doesn't help you. You can play like the elusive 'Eagle' and still lose your shirt. The only thing that will work..especially on the 'bad beat' tables is (keep in mind i'm talking 2-4 and 3-6 specifically) playing premium hands and keeping the flop/seen ratio to 20%-28% (30% is still too much...this is probably the stat that really counts via Poker Tracker). People will draw out on you no matter how much it costs them. It seems like alot of players will take their last 30.00 to these tables to get lucky. As we all know 30.00 is not should be 100.00 and no less in order to play the way you should.

This is the look on my face the day I qualify for the WSOP....I just had to post this pic because it is the funniest picture I have ever seen.....haven't been doing much lately...though I have been making one last futile attempt at going for a WSOP buy-in on PokerStars... Posted by Hello
