Quick post here.....I have so many things to post about that I really need to sit down and bang out a couple of long posts. I had one of those once-in-a-great while occasions to find an utter WHALE at the $1/$2 NL cash games last night. He was sitting at the table with $775 when I got there. Within 40 minutes, I had busted him 3 times over and was sitting with over $1,200. The picture above was taken at my highest point. Unfortunately, a short time later, I raised to $7 with 10-10 and the BB 3-bet to $27. I called as I was very deep and the flop came 8-5-3 with two hearts. I checked and he bet $25 (into a $55 pot). I shoved and he called me with....wait.....K-3off. Turn was a brick and the river was a putrid looking 3. I lost that $450 pot and the guy proceeded to berate me over the hand. I tilted a tad after that but was able to go to bed with a $645 profit in about 75 minutes of $1/$2 NL (I'll take it).
It's been a busy week at work and softball, baseball, and basketball for the kids is full force. We received some unsettling medical news about our 11-year old daughter yesterday that really shook me to the core. It's amazing how we get on this road in life and think we know what's important and that we're invincible. My wife took her to see some specialists and have some tests today so we're praying and waiting for the results. It sure makes poker seem unimportant.
I'm dying to narrate the story of my 2006 and 2007 WSOP experiences but I'm just struggling to find the time. Hopefully, I can knock it out this weekend.
Thanks for reading,
