Someone made a post on DC called â€œHUPLO is making me madâ€ and ever since reading it for the 5th or 6th time today Iâ€™ve been overcome with the strong desire to declare that pretzels are making me thirsty.
For those of you that listen to â€œHey Ballâ€ Joe and I have a 5k hand prop bet going for the week. I donâ€™t think Joe has ever played 5k hands in a week because a) he is old and b) he plays stud and a lot of live poker. It seems like Joe put in a good chunk of RUSH O8 hands but Iâ€™m still convinced he wonâ€™t make it. That being said Iâ€™ve got 1 day to do it and am about 2k hands short. I donâ€™t think it will be that big of a problem though.
My past few sessions of have been insane. I ran up 500bbs last night @ a shallow PLO table just binging the nuts and getting it in â€œuntouchableâ€ (I couldnâ€™t lose. Wow, worst attempt at a poker catch phrase ever).
I played one guy HUHU yesterday. At one point he was up 10 buyins on me. I was tilting a bit in the middle there but snapped out of it rather quickly. He was just so aggro and once we got deep that was NOT good for him. I had to go to walk my dog and ended up quitting him though. He thought I was FOS for quitting him to â€œwalk my dogâ€ but I literally had to walk my dog. He was crying at the door. He started at around 5:30 and the trooper that he is he took a nap for an hour. Then he got up and it was â€œI shit in here or I shit outsideâ€ time. Hopefully I can play the guy again as he is still up 3 buyins on me and I know I can bust his account.
Other than that Iâ€™ve been better about playing and hopefully will keep that up. Poker is fun. For everyone. Even my opponents who donâ€™t practice avoidance.
