OK, so I just bought my first video game system since Intellevision. You could say I'm a little behind the times. Anyway, we opened it up and played Wii bowling. I almost had to east some humble pie as my 5 year daughter almost beat me twice in bowling. We didn't get the Wii fit; but upon further review we ordered it last night. Perhaps that will make it better for my wife and kids.
Sometimes, in poker, it is just better to be lucky than good. The hand below will show this. The session just went from bad to worse last night finding myself down a couple hundred dollars; but then this hand came up.
The villain was your typical fishy type opponent with stats of 47/21/2.8 over 155 hands.

I guess preflop you could argue folding or raising; but against this opponent, I just want to see the flop.
Have a nice weekend!!!
