If you look at Webster's Dictionary for the word hammered, you find the following definition(s)

2: slang : drunk 1a

I submit one more. They say that a picture is worth a 1,000 words. Well, I don't have a picture; but maybe I have the next best thing. A hand history

This came from the 13th hand of the Mook tonight. Let me preface this that I wasn't even going to play tonight as I just wasn't really in the mood, if you can believe that. How can one not be in the mood to play the Moooookkkkk..

Anyway, here it is (and the names haven't been changed to protect the innocent):

Make note of the Waffles comment about our host. hmmmm.

I pretty knew I was beat; but wasn't really expecting to be "hammered". Oh well, what can you do.


In other news, I finally watched the WSOP 50K HORSE tourney on ESPN. I am really saddened by Scotty Nguyen's behaviour. I really hope that this is the exception and not the norm for him. I'm not going down the road of name calling because I have also heard plenty of good things about him. That was obviously not him. It was the alcohol. I personally believe that should have cut him off many beers ago. Regarding the young guy Michael DiMichelle, I personally didn't have any problems with his quasi celebrating. And to his credit, he toned it down once it was brought up.


Luckily, I have thrown 3 positive sessions together. I didn't think that was going to happen as I got down early; but I continued to play my game and got some good hands when I needed.

Here is a graph of today's action.

I had one big hand with set over set; but other than that it was mostly small pots.
Keep voting in the upper right hand corner for the podcasts that you most like to listen. Again, my time that I get to listen to podcasts has been shortened and I wanted to see what most of you podcasters are listening to. Feel free to vote for more than one item, if appropriate.
Have a nice Day!!!

Dude, instead of playing like 10 tables or whatever, cut down to 2-3 tables and start playing 1-2nl.
