Monday....Monday...da da dadah dah dahhhhh

I love checking out the country stats for statcounter......what can I say...I'm huge in Peru! I haven't been blogging lately due to my ongoing R.E. fiasco. It's been gettin' me down as they say.
The latest on that is a possible closing date on Feb. 22nd....if it doesn't close I just may go to jail the rest of my life (actually I signed off power of attorney to my lawyer so I don't have to be in the same room with these idiots). I also cancelled various Poker accounts due to lack of fundage and Rakeback lackage.....say that sentence too fast and you're liable to get a tongue injury! I had to miss the inaugural HPT Foxwoods fieldtrip.....I reeaaallly wanted to go too. I wanted to play the inaugural HPT online tour on FTP but I cancelled that account (I will be back soon). I wanted to test my chops against all the Foxwoods donkeys instead of the regular online tards and charity poker no foldemites. ahhh well, I'll get there soon enough..... I've been playing at PokerStars a lot and I'm actually enjoying the change of pace. I think that the nightly 15+1.50 NL Hold'em tourney is my favorite tourney. even though the starting chips are only T1500 it's still a good tourney. That nightly 10.00+1.00 NL hold'em (10 minute level) tourney is like PokerCrack. I hate it!! It still gets me coming back for more though....the fast format is good for us peeps that have to get to bed at a relatively early hour. I needed a break from the BBT tourneys....they've been lasting way to late. Don't get me wrong...I love 'em but I needed a break. So I am looking forward to getting my mojo back in Feb. I'll probably be heading to foxwoods and terrorizing the local tourneys later on after my damn house is sold in Lawrence. In the meantime I will be present at the Bodonkey! and various PokerTards well as a few live tourneys when I can (HPT I mean u!).

By the way, I saw the movie 'The Transformers' this past! That was some special effects action packed entertainment. Good job Michael Bay..........

January is painful

I'm not having fun in January. My house closing was postponed yet again.....I wasn't exactly surprised. Not much else is going on. The latest in a series of postponements has me stressed again. I can't do the things I want to. I just want to sell my goddamned house to someone who actually wants to buy it. I swear the Mortgage brokers of the world have all sorts of power and no one to regulate them. I had a previous bad experience with a Mortgage broker back in '04 when I bought my brother-in-laws condo. Nothing was on time....nobody called when they were supposed to...and the guy was a flat-out fuggin' asshole. Now it seems to have come full circle again with the guy who wants to buy my house. He doesn't have a clue because he is a first-time home buyer. My Real Estate agent and I are plotting against said Mortgage Broker and we are in the process of screwing her over BIGTIME! Someday I will do a post on the relationship of Real Estate Equity and Pot Equity in NL Hold'em (then again maybe not...because no one gives a fuck).

So Please get yourself a lawyer when you are buying or selling real estate these days....You will regret it if you don't. If you learn one thing from me then listen to that one....seriously. I did hire a lawyer before my latest R.E. fiasco so I am at least learning from my past mistakes. Lawyers are actually good for something!

Go play the Bodonkey's chock full of pokery goodness. I am going to kill this game tonight and take out my Real Estate Broker angst on all donkeys that get in my way!
By the way....did anybody see the Colts choke this weekend? How fuggin' bad was that....they suck! This weekend is going to be a below zero beat down of the Chargers! They are coming to the confines of below zero windy weather from the San Diego sun and the indoor track field AKA the Colts weather-free-hall-of-choke. The Patriots are going to beat the Chargers 42-7! Learn it....Know it....Live it!

'The Ultimate Poker Experience'

I haven't played much at UB for the past couple of years but I always liked the interface they have. Some of the best cashes I had were in 2005 on UB.....I started playing MTT's there instead of PartyPoker. I saved Party for the cash games.....miss that too. I love FTP also but.......I can't justify the cash until I get my damn house sold. I waited until the BBToo was over and then emptied the account. I see all the new tournaments that bloggers are participating in and I feel like I'm missing out on the fun. In the immortal words of Cyberdyne Systems Model 101......I'll be baaack!

I read on 2+2 that there is no rake back allowed on PokerStars. I thought about cancelling that account for the time being also but....I'm a sucker. I tried the Instant ECheck deposit just to test it out...a small deposit. is instantaneous! They withdraw the actual check amount up to 10 days later but wow....if there was ever a temptation it is Instant ECheck. I guess it works fine at PokerStars and Bodog. There are so many tournament on PStars that I love....I just can't take the beats that I suffered all over again this past weekend. I was about to cash in the nightly 11$ 10 minute-levels tournament. I have T3500. I am in late position. There is a min-raise from a min-raise with anything donk in early position. She had been doing this so often that her stack had dwindled to T5000 from T10000 within 30 minutes. The blinds were at 200-400. She min-raises and I call with pocket 6's. The flop of Jx-Js-7s falls. Nobody else is in the pot.........The min-raiser girl checks. (I am thinking this is very weak.....I am close to the cash but I could use a huge pot right before the cash.) I wait for a few seconds then jam my 6's into the pot. This person waits a second.....then calls with As-9c. How the fuck can you call almost all of your stack off with A-9 off suit on a flop of Jx-Js-7s????? Are you looking for the runner-runner flush? The turn produces a 9 of cunt....or clubs for this 'tard. This shit occurs regularly on PStars...and I can see why I haven't really made any serious effort there for the last 2 years.....Jeezuz man!!! I am still doing well at Bodog.....or more specifically the 'Bodonkey'!

I've been making the top 5 quite often....which included prize + 109 in tourney bucks. So read the following description and get in on the action :

3 years of Poker and Miscellaneous stuff

Onward ho! 2008 ! Yay! for three years I've been posting about Poker and Miscellaneous Stuff. seems like only 2 years! 2007 will go down as a hugely stressful year for me. My old house was supposed to close on the last day of the year....and it's's killing me but I'll get by. Like I said before......I did not know what stress could do to a body. Real Estate Tilt! We (wife and I) tried to cram too much into too little time. We had to sell our house, NH condo., buy a house from the market, wife got new job, find a new daycare for daughter (harder than it sounds!) and tie up all loose ends after all of that was done. Well, it turns out that we got most of it done but it turned out to be the worst real estate crash in 20 years that coincided with out little cram session. The guy that is going to buy my old house is from that town...a first time home buyer...with a part time real estate agent...and a mortgage broker without a clue. This my friends is a recipe for DISASTER! Even still we may be able to get something done within the next two weeks. If so....the bottle of champagne in the fridge is going down the gullet pronto! the way...wife is 4.5 months preggers.
I actually got into an auto accident during the last big snowstorm on the 20Th of Dec. just to add some pain to my already end-of-the-year cram session. I was going to work during the height of the snowstorm when the genius in front of me decided to stop fast and try to make a right turn on a road that wasn't plowed yet. I tapped my breaks and they locked up and I was going sideways at about 20 MPH. that's a great feeling....I almost gunned the gas to at least avoid collision but there was oncoming traffic so I just had to brace myself and hope for the best. The guy got out of his car with a bloody lip...he actually admitted he was partly at fault. I hope my insurance co. doesn't find me more than 50% at fault. I'll have to appeal if it does. The roads were just a mess. We had record snowfall and it wasn't even the first day of winter yet!!!

So as far as 2007 was could have been worse. The World Champion RedSox quenched my thirst for another Dynasty to be? The Patriots...well what more can you say....16-0 in this day and age? Suck on that '72-'73 Miami fans...SUCK ON THAT!!!!!! More to come from the soon-to-be-world-champ-Pats in '08. How's that for Boston Douchebaggery!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well for my poker playing it pretty much was subpar. I didn't cash much in the BBTwo. I at least came in ahead in the BBT but this year I'm probably one of the guys that played a lot of tourneys and didn't cash much. I came in fourth in the Riverchasers tourney....I might have even won if it wasn't for button mashing calling stations...LOL. Just kidding....I don't want to start a ghey blogger war...because my record is a paltry pittance of what his and others is. I do enjoy reading the blogger wars though...they are drama....they are comedy....and they are just plain ghey. As for most blogs....I think Chads' is the most interesting in a poker strategy sense. More so for me because MTT's are so tough to conquer. I will be looking forward to the BBThree and it's promise to have more types of tournaments. You may as well call it the combo of the WPBT and the BBT. Al and Chad working together...Cats and Dogs living together....end of the world type stuff. I've been tossing around the idea of cancelling my FullTilt and PokerStars accounts. I'm gonna go through with it because the BBTwo is over and my bankrolls are depleted on both. I'll try to get a new account on both with fuggin' rake back goddammit! If anybody has an easy way to do this I would appreciate some feedback. I'm not sure if I have to wait a certain amount of time or what. Feedback for Rakeback! I thoroughly enjoy the PokerStars and Full Tilt bad beat machines but I want some payback. I may actually think of starting a new bankroll building process on both if I can get this fuggin real estate problem over and done with. I started an account on Absolute poker with rake back but the fuggin mother of all scandals happened and I haven't deposited anything since. Administrator fuggin greedy can some people get! Jeezuz chrizmizz....
I did have a lot of fun playing poker in 2007 at foxwoods on Christmas, Las Vegas for the the Winter Classic (no need to link as the recaps are within the last 3 posts!) , and at the NL bar league. I also got to go with Biggestron to the H-town NL tourney. I met the so-called evil Wonka, and also RakeFeeder. All four of us made the final table...not too bad for blogger representation. Both extremely nice people and good players to boot. There were about 25 players at host Mike's H-Town tourney. I came in 5Th and Bigge grabbed the second place booty. I got knocked out with the 'Big-Bitch' as A-Qo was called and being under the gun with short stack. Mike called with J-10o and rivered my sorry-ass with a 7 to complete his flopped open-ended straight. After seeing Bigge play at the Winter Classic and the H-Town tourney I have to say that he is unusually calm under duress at the table. Kudos. I will definitely be back to the online skill tourneys and other blogger tourneys but I'm not sure how long it will be. In the meantime I will be attacking the Bodonkey with abandon! I came in 3rd again last night for a whopping 150.00 bucks! or 109.00 in tourney bucks+48.00. Love_Elf kicked some major ass last night but fell to the evil Goat Rodeo! Good times!

I didn't really accomplish any of the poker goals I set out to accomplish in 2007 :
I didn't cash in a Sunday Major...although I only played two
I didn't win a Blonkament....cashed and placed high a bunch of times though.....
I didn't play a big buy-in live tourney (more than 150.00) at Foxwoods or Vegas....
I'll have to claim life tilt for the majority of goals missed......I mean when I set these goals last January I did not plan on moving or making a bigger family least not at the time.

I did meet some of the coolest people on earth via the Internet and blogger events.
I did make a few final tables in low limit tourneys that had decent payouts.
I did attend a WSOP qualifier at Rockingham Park in NH....and got my first ever Royal Flush!
I did accomplish more in my personal life than I thought possible...the future looks goot!

So I leave you with no 2008 goals to list or accomplishments to conquer.....
well maybe I'll leave you with this quoted gem from Poker Peaker in last nights Bodonkey to Me (after I told Buddy Dank to fix his radio broadcast music)
"c'mon can't all be Bratwurst"! fuggin idea PP.....but this is one of the funniest quotes I've ever heard! LOL!
