The best Sports town in the U.S.A.

Ever since I was 7....I have had a reason to doubt the Sox. In '78 I was introduced at a young age to the future. In '86 they broke my heart. In 2004 they erased 86 years of 'curses' and of taunting gems such at "19-18, 19-18" and "Don't worry there's always next year!". In 2007 They are hated....more than any previous team in memory.......even more than the Yankees. They also erased any doubt that we have the best baseball town and baseball team owners on the planet. They also erased any foreboding my mind. I was skeptical until the end of the season. Then they put the Angels out of their misery. They got into a huge deficit to the Indians. I was actually looking forward to see how this team responded and they won three straight! Two of the most incredible comebacks in sports history all within 4 years. I can no longer question Terry Francona on his baseball moves. He truly 'manages' a team and allows that team to develop a personality.....then he guides that team to victory. Although the 'hater' websites and blogs are at an all-time high.....we Red Sox fans all know that they are ridiculously jealous. So hate on us for the Red Sox all you want. We get to look forward to one of the greatest football teams in NFL history for the rest of the year!

Big Papi and Timmy Wakefield
World Series MVP
The Japanese Connection
The celebration of the 2007 WS
The 2nd trophy in 4 years
and finally....
A message to all you haters of RedSox fans and RedSox nation!

Miscellaneous stuff....T.G.I.F.F.

Thank God It's F'n Friday. This weeks onslaught of BBT2 tourneys has been a grind. I wasn't able to cash in the 'Big Game', M.A.T.H., The Mookie, but I was able to final table RiverChasers and pick up a few bucks. I came in 5th and basically played some solid poker. The final table was run over by Lucko....what the fuck else is new. Congrats to Lucko...he makes it look easy. I made a good stack by the final table.....but I ran my A-10o into A's. Actually I raised in position but the short stack on the table at the time pushed and I called. I need to stop that kind of play at the final table if I actually want to win a blonkament. I also mixed in a ton of low buy-in tourneys on Stars and a few other blonkaments like 'The Bodog Blogger tournament' on Bodog and the 'Monkey Tourney' on Stars. The Bodog tourney was going rather well until I tried to push ShamanAlex off of his flopped ten with my measly 3's. I really wanted to final table that tourney with all the overlay goodness.....oh well. The 'Monkey Tourney' was really kind of a bad beat to fourth place...3 get paid. The short stack pushed with A-Jo and I called with 9's....Standard Ace on the flop took 85% of my stack. I had another pocket pair just after that but another standard ace on the flop put me away to a miserable bubble finish. There is something to that 'All-in Vigorish' that seems to hold up on the poker sites out there. The bubble finish and the not-so-good play on the Bodog Blogger tourney ruined my Tuesday. I would have felt a lot worse if I didn't token-in to the bigger tourneys for the BBT2. Don't forget to forage into the wild world of Sports....Fantasy Sports that is. Don't be afraid to use Bonus Code : PokahDave!. Anyway, I'll be haunting Stars and Full Tilt tonight...and more thing................................................................................................................................................................

Together we can..........

Ban online poker in Massachusetts that is! Together we can.....raise property taxes. Together we can create a nanny-state from hell now that every politician is disgustingly liberal....or Democrat. Together we can.....create a modern socialist republic in which the middle-class is flushed out of the state of Massachusetts. This is one of a thousand proposals yet to come for you fucking idiots that voted for Devil Patrick. Not that it has had a huge effect in Oregon...but it's the principle of it all.

Are you ready?

I'm not...well at least not fully ready bankroll-wise. I forgot that there is a 7-day turnaround on epassporte deposits! 7 days! I have exactly two tokens and a very small amount on FullTilt. I have enough on Stars after my 2nd place finish in one of those 360 max tourneys last week. There is only one semi-blogger tourney on Stars though. That would be the Monkey tourney on Tuesday nights....I play while I'm playing the Bodog Blogger extravaganza. The Monkey tourney needs your help! I just may not be able to join the 'Big Game' on Sunday. I am in for all the others though. One point about the BBtwo and blogger tourneys in general...........I love how every double-up is scrutinized as a 'bad' play by the 'bad' players....but a 'good' play by the 'good' players. I fully admit that I have made some of the worst plays in online poker tournament history....lately and last year. Ahhh, the dichotomy of it all..........
Two things :
Go RedSox
Go Patriots

Well not for me........I was playing in the WBCOOP on Sunday. I went out in 123ND place. I went out in said place with pocket A's. Some dude went all in with A-Qo (had me covered by plenty) and everybody folded to me. I announced that "I have pocket A's.....and I know they aren't going to hold up". The guy flops a Broadway straight with an oh-so-obvious flop of Kx-Jx-10x. That one hurt much more than the 5 times I got knocked out of tournament with K's again. Every time I had the other guy completely behind.
So anyway, I did one of those 360X5.50 on PokerStars...I came in second for 288.00. I love those 180X4.40 tourneys also. I had a nice run last year of places of 2-1-2 over 2 weeks for some huge ROI's. So I came in second Sunday morning because....I passed out. I couldn't keep my eyes open after being up for nearly 24 hours. Add in a ton of beers and lack of sleep and I woke up in 2ND place. I've never done that before....ever. I lost out on a 450.00 first prize because I was more exhausted than ever. Everybody needs to gear up, load up, and strap 'em on for this announcement. I am all over it.
Red Sox Saturday into Sunday morning......not good. Curt Schilling is one of the top rated pitchers in post season history....let's hope this is his one bad outing for the post season. Eric fucking Gagne....enough said. 'Americas Team' was busy destroying the Cowboys on Sunday. That was just could hear the commentators just deflate after realizing all hope is futile. They wanted ssssoooooooo bad for the Cowboys to upset 'Americas Team'. C'mon people it ain't gonna happen! This year Brady actually has a receiver core. The only thing stopping the team from whoopin' up on the Bears last year was the Flu. Yeah, that's right....the Colts won the AFC championship because half of the fucking defense had the flu. That game on Oct. 20Th or whatever is going to be the end of Colts.

The past week and future events

My wife is pregnant.....found out last Friday. I guess I am going to be a proud papa for a second time in late May-early June of 08'. Hopefully I can sell/rent my abandoned house in Lawrence and move on with whatever is next. If anybody in Mass. is looking for a starter house in a 'decent' (Lawrence but on the Methuen line) neighborhood then send me an email. It's on the market and we've redone the kitchen and bathroom. It's a two bedroom-1 bath house with a full unfinished basement........there is an old card room setup by my grandfather a long time ago in said basement.
email me at for details...or click on this link. If that doesn't work go here.
This house also comes with a brand new refrigerator and a washer/gas dryer in basement.

Anyway, if you haven't tried FantasySportsLive your an idiot. Well not an idiot but if you like to play fantasy sports and actually have a good chance of winning money. You get to 'Donk it up' with some of the biggest degenerates on the intertubes.

I started playing some blogger tourneys again....on Tuesdays...Bodog 'Bodonkey' and last Wednesday the vaunted 'Mookie'. Tough fields....and when you are rusty like me (haven't participated and wonder why I jumped back into this....I must be sick)....let's just say that "it ain't easy". I've been taking behind the woodshed and beaten to a bloody pulp by Bayne on the Tuesday Bodog 'Bodonkey'. I have to step up the game a bit. It doesn't help that every time I get pocket Kings...I am a short stack and in dire need of chips.....and get knocked out. No less than 10 times have I ran Kings into A's and every other Cowboys cracker. I've also managed to piss off some of the other competition...not because I want to....but again...I'm a little rusty. Here is a HH on the hand and what happened. The result was good for me although I did make a bad play with the push. I figured I could make Lightning fold by representing a straight or a set......being early in the 'Mookie'. It turns out that I had more 'outs' than I thought....and actually a diamond fell on the river for the nut flush. I hope that everybody doesn't doesn't tell me "Fuck you and your mother" every tourney......

Speaking of tough tourneys and bad beats......there is a rumour floating out there......
The BBT was a long, tough, 3 months or something long slug fest for degenerate online poker bloggers and donkeys. Now the poker gods are about to launch another assault on the Poker Karma, The inner-donkey, The next and surely not the last................................................... Pokerbadbeatdegenerateblonkeydonkeyblonkamentdonkament-fest For your weekly ration of tourneys like these refer to the sidebar....there is a donkfest every night. They are on Bodog, FullTilt and PokerStars.

Enjoy the weekend especially if you are from the N.E. region and are a sports fan........good times and bad beats for all!

Weekend stuff

Although I bubbled in the BFFB
I still see a great potential for earning some cash.....for Playing Fantasy Sports!!!!!!! For those of you who have participated in fantasy sports for years.....Now participate while earning a real shot at the cash! Not those unrealistic prizes that you have no shot at on ESPN.......

I also bubbled numerous tourneys on PokerStars, UB, and Bodog. Ahh, it's been a while since my Kings got sucked out by sixes. I was in the 100K guarantee on PokerStars yesterday just outside the money bubble and whammo! K's....perfect for a double-up. Pocket 4's also destroyed me twice whilst I held A-Ko and A-Ksooooted. Both hitting sets while an ace was on the board. I have to remember....I Want This-I Do.......I really that 100K guar. on Stars though. Yesterday brought out over 17,500 donkeys including yours truly. That would be the biggest tourney on the planet and plenty of donkeys will call your obvious A's or K's with pocket 6''s good to be back.

What a great weekend to be a New England Sports fan. The Sox with Mr. clutch pitcher (C.S.) shutting down the miserable Angels. Tom Brady and crew destroying the Browns. The Bruins.........ah nothing to see there.......(it hurts me as a life long fan of the B's to watch this team after it was unceremoniously dismantled by that douche bag Harry Sinden). I just may have to watch N.B.A. basketball again with the Celtics making those big acquisitions over the past summer. I haven't watched NBA since the late 80's on purpose.

Well this week I may jump back into the blonkaments that I've missed so badly. I just added some bankroll recently....probably won't last long at the rate I play tournament but....what the hell.
