Another Day, Another Party

Published by at 8:42 am under Personal,Poker

Yesterday we had yet another birthday party to attend. By now they pretty much all just seem to blend together. And for the second week in a row, it was another one at the zoo.

In years past, we had gone to the zoo on a regular basis cause it’s cheap, the kids enjoy it and they get some fresh air.. This year, though, we hadn’t had the opportunity to make it to the zoo until the birthday party we attended last week and now we’ve been there twice in a week. Strange how that goes sometimes.

At least this time, we had nothing else going on, so we were able to let the kids play around for a bit. The whole group even walked around the zoo before the party. It was kind of nice being able to have some time to shoot a few pics (or a few hundred). Even if we haven’t been there at all this year, at least we can pretend we have with all the pictures.

Most of the whole group. I was with a small group of stragglers.

Avery was really having a blast feeding all the animals. Even when we went by the alligators, he was tossing in some feed corn. There was no convincing him that they didn’t care for or want corn.

We spent a significant amount of time in the playground after the party. Probably good to burn off some of the sugar. It was apparent that that wasn’t even enough though as the trip to Target after words ended up being a crabby kid fest.

After a week of having my computer in various states of not being ready for prime time. I think I’m actually getting pretty close. But I still needed to get some stuff done like read my email, so when I signed on last night, Juskimo informed me of a $5 rebuy PLO event on stars last night. I hadn’t played nearly enough PLO as I had hoped in preparation of the WCOOP coming up at the end of the week, so I thought it sounded like a good opportunity. He fared better than I did, cashing out somewhere around 15th place. I didn’t get much going for myself through much of the tournament including the rebuy period and ended my run on with this hand.

Me getting my chips in with the best of it, was a reoccurring theme for the evening. I actually had some history with the villian in the hand, or at least as much history as you can have when someone has only been at the table for like 4 hands. His first hand he limped UTG and I potted it with my QQxxss and he folded that time. Not sure if he tried restealing and just got pot committed or what, but that ended my tourney.

So while I sweated Jus, I played a few PLO SnGs to get in some more practice. The last hand of the first one was:

Yep, that’s me getting felted with the chips going in while I had the best hand again. Eventually things have to turn in my favor. So I play a few hands in a ring game waiting for my $11 SnG to fill up, and make a few dollars. Here is the last hand of the SnG:

Again, me, with the best hand, shoving chips in. But what’s this??? Can it be??? Did they hold??? Positive variance obviously. That and the money I banked in the ring game, made me about scratch for the evening.
