Bourbonators - a light month

Last night was the monthly Bourbonators home game. Darrin hosted, but, as can be typical in the summer, if was a very light turn out. Now to preface this game, I enjoy the game for more than the poker. This is a great group of guys, and it's just fun to hang out.

There were 4 of us to start with. Darrin, John W., Lowell and myself. We tried something different for a change from the straight holdem. We did a variation of H.O.R.S.E. Now, Lowell and Darrin had almost no experience outside of Holdem, with Darrin having played stud before a bit, but most of the experience is in holdem. To make things a little easier, removed the split games. Ohmaha we just played high, and the final game we just played pineapple. It didn't seem like it would be a lot of fun to chop many pots with only 4 people.

That was fun and a nice change, although, I think we screwed up some of the rules...

John B. showed up and bought into the first game. We basically just played cards all night with a bit of a freeroll feel.

The Canadia whisky we tried was, well, it was OK. It was a generic whisky with not much to be excited about. It was smooth but basically forgettable.

I've been taking it easy on the online play lately. This past weekend took quite a toll. I've figured it was best for the bankroll to just rest and not lose ground just because I'm too tired to care.
