Not a good starting table for me :

I played pretty bad at the first table...but made some nice hands late to cruise into the final table. I was still the short stack by far after a few bust outs. In my last hand I had 6-6-5 with a short stack call. I then called again (mistake of course but I need something to happen here) and a f'n 6 fell. I didn't have much left and had to go all in. Does anybody out there think I should fold with 2K in chips left at that point? A 2 fell on 6th street but then another freakin 2 fell for the always unwanted boat in Razz. Everybody loves to jab at that but I had no friggen choice. I was committed and by far the shortest stack before the hand even started. Happy St. Patricks day......

For some reason this both humors and frightens me....

Cat Puke Tilt III

So my cat 'Bruin' comes into the dining room (where I play poker on laptop) and steps into the hallway behind me......then pukes a pile of bile. Just like old times for good 'ol Bruin. I had two previous Cat puke tilt segments in past years. It always seems to happen when I am in an important situation during a poker tournament. Maybe I'm playing a poker tournament all the time you I can't play as much as I used to....I say. It was pretty late last night and my daughter always comes running out of her bedroom and runs into our room so she can sleep in our bed. I had to clean it up right away. I could just see her run out and slip on a pile of cat puke and start crying etc. So I put myself on the 'sit out next hand' feature on PokerStars. I clean it up and the money bubble breaks right before I get back...I mean it wasn't a huge tourney but the 15+1.50 NLHE at 10PM ET on Stars. Why am I telling you all this? The cat disappeared for 8 days last week. I let him out right before the coldest week of February. He's done this disappearing act twice before...always during the coldest part of the winter. I thought a coyote got him or something. I was driving home from work and I saw a coyote on the road. The person who had apparently just hit him pulled over to the side of the road. The thing was quite the large animal...I thought it was wolf or something. I mean this coyote was the size of a large husky or something. So the cat comes back after eight days of whatever it was doing and howls at the door. My wife let him in and he slept for like 2 or 3 days. He lost a lot of weight, was dehydrated and tired. My wife said that she saw some shag rug stuck in his paws. Somehow this cat gets invited into houses in the neighborhood and apparently lounges around until the kick him out. Either that or he found and old rolled up rug somewhere to keep warm enough in the cold weather. After a few days of sleep, water, and food the cat seems to be back to normal. He is still skinny as a rail and was the source of a large amount of laughter two nights ago. He was standing on our bed and meowing. He's skinny and his spine is sort of visable and his back was arched downward. I was looking at him and although his fur is cool looking and he has this design like a tiger/leopoard...he looked downright pathetic. My wife looks at him and says "Look at Bruin...he looks like a broken donkey" I stated laughing so hard I started to cough a bronchial cough for 5 minutes. It seemed such an appropriate comment for our pathetic looking cat. My wife is so damn funny sometimes.......

I'm a BBTard me embarrassed....or whatever else you want to call me. I owe an apology to SmBoatDrinks. Sorry. I guess I had too many Boat Drinks last night. I just got through this extended period of sickness in my household with everybody getting bronchitis, Sinus infections, conjunctivitis, stomach bugs (raising kids or germ collectors is hard)etc. So I decided to get my drink on. I made it to the final table in the Mookie and was coasting along quite nicely...then I made a play and got called (edit : crippled later to be knocked out by Waffles). I then proceeded to make an ass out of myself. I made some comments that I thought were funny but probably came across as me being an asshole. I was being egged-on and wasn't really thinking about how stupid the comments were...but its no excuse. It was the first BBTard or BBTrainwreck moment. It has a whole lot to do with me not being able to win a Mookie and generally being a donkey. There is no need for anybody to get up on their soapbox and point out how my comments are why "they don't play these tourneys anymore...." or making thinly-veiled references about players being douche bags etc. I'm saying it here....I was an assjack. Of course I'm not telling anybody how they can or will use their blog. If you want you can tell me how much of jerk I am right here in my own Comments box! Yay! From now on you'll only hear "gg"...or "nh" from me.......unlesssssss people actually thought I was funny and would like me to continue.....never mind....
