Concert Picture dump and my first Royal Flush

Some pics of the MegaDeth/Heaven and Hell show.....they aren't that good but my buddy took them on his Palm phone....
There is a picture here of some of the fans before the show started......they are from the back woods of New Hampshire.....and they all came out that night....

The following pic is Ronnie James Dio at the age of 5.....He has grown up but not much......




I played at Rockingham Park today at the 150.00 buy-in WSOP qualifier. I believe there was over 400 entries on this rainy day. It is an old Horse racing track so there was all sorts of gambling going on with the simulcast of the Preakness. The structure of the tourney is about as good as it gets anywhere around here. Except for the bar 'Slickeys' that I go to occasionally. I did not win a seat or even cash for that matter. I did however hit the first Royal flush of my poker career. Sadly, there was only one short stack that fell victim. I had Kh-Jh and called pre-flop. The unfortunate victim was drawing to a straight and made his straight after I got my K-high flush on the turn. Ah-Qh-9s was the flop.....8h on the turn and the guy goes all in with his last 2000. He did have a straight but was already dead to my K-high flush. I called..... and the Th falls on the river.....Crazy. A bunch of people I usually play against at the bar were there. We had a 'Last longer' pot of about 60 bucks. 10 bucks apiece. I lost the opportunity for that when I decided to go all-in with my pocket 8's under the gun. There were about 90-100 left and I had a short stack of 6000. The Blinds were at 700-1400 so I had to make a move. I got called by a guy with A-K of course. He spiked his K on the turn. The last of the last-longer players from the bar doubled up twice before I left. If he made the money then I will win the last longer bet. I'll find out some Thursday night soon.
