Not a Tiger Fan and Better to be Lucky

Let me say that I have never been a Tiger Woods Fan. Maybe it just the rooting for the underdog thing. Whatever it is, yesterday was truly the first day that I was rooting for him from start to finish. It felt kind of weird. I thought it was over after his 2nd shot on 18; but some people just never learn. This is Tiger Freaking Woods. Even when he knocked his third shot within 20 feet from the hole, I was not sold that he would make the putt. You know, it just wasn't his day; but again, this is Tiger Freaking Woods. Words just can't describe how good this guy is.

Obviously, he should take care of business against Rocco; but crazier things have happened. One thing is for sure, I do NOT think that Mediate will be threatened or afraid of playing with Tiger.


I did not play a whole of lot of poker over the weekend. I played almost 1300 hands; but at least it was a good weekend for a change. Here is the graph from the weekend.

I did have one really nice hand that goes into the It is better to be lucky than good category. Not that it was a suckout because it wasn't as I got my money in as a 100% favorite.

Even if you cheer for the underdog, you can't help but cheer for Woods sometimes. His play can be so damn exciting. Glad you enjoyed...
