Poker league, The Mookie and Black Magic Woman

I just don't know where all the time goes! Holy crap, I just don't know how I got this busy.

I'm watching OhCountess play the Mookie right now. She's 2nd in chips at the second break. That's my wife, suckas!

Go get'm girl! Corn Vegas! I'm there!

Last night, I returned yet again to the free poker at Brother's. Bodie25 and I were seated at the same table. This is the first time we've spent any time at the same table in a long time. We also had some real questionable players at the table.

As much as I love to get AA in a tournament, I got them twice in the first hour. Not the best time. No one was into gambling yet so it was like pulling teeth to get any money with them. The one thing it did give me was fear of being hot by other players. I took advantage of that I took some pot that no one wanted.

Last night I focused on playing situations. In one particular hand, the blinds were at 300/600. I opened in MP for 1800 with 66. I got 2 callers. The flop comes JJ2. The BB checks. Now, by the reaction of the button caller, I was pretty sure, this flop missed him. The BB is the type of player to bet the set and I'd seriously doubt he'd be in the pot with a 2. I moved all in for my last 1000 and every one folds. Almost a triple up and I never showed my hand.

Dang, my wife is about to cash in the mookie!

Well, the night moved on in free poker land. I kept playing position, taking small pots. I watched Bodie25 bust out when the blind squirrels kept finding nuts. And basically folded my way to the final table.

Something that really sucks about bar league poker is the blind structure at the final table. 300/600, 400/800, 500/1000, 1000/2000. This starts getting really stupid. After this, the blinds go up by 1000 for a while. You go from 20 BB to nothing in a very short period of time and the ShoveFest begins.

There were no cherries in the window of my slot machine and I busted in 6th place. For those of you scoring at home, AQo was the hand I was holding when I pushed my 7000 chips in. With blinds of 2000/4000 - ATo was the favorite to win the hand. Friggin' hand of the devil, I tell you.

The wife is still playing in the mookie. She's solidly in the top 4!

So my Mookie tonight was well, disappointing. Surflexus raised his short stack into my button. I reraised with AJ only to find the LB shoving everything in the middle. Unfortunately for me, it was for a wee bit more than my raise. Surf folds, and I call. KK vs. love. wife made the final table in the Mookie. In fact, at this moment, she's in the final 8 and 2nd in chips.

So, tonight's Mookie tonight has been the fun of watching the Mrs play so well! Go honey! This is pretty cool. I just told the guys at BDR...lots of chuckles.

Our family warm up for this here mookie? We finally beat Santana - Black Magic Woman on the Guitar III. Here's something totally funny. My wife, OhCountess, is totally into GH3. We've been playing it quite regularly in Co-op mode. Fun times! Santana had been kicking our butts, but tonight, we broke on through and finally ROCKED!

I gotta get back to watching the Mrs....bring it home honey!

If you have the Wii and have WiFi, I play GHIII whenever possible and can't find a "match" online to play against.

I'll have to figure out how to do that. I haven't played it online yet mostly just me and mrs squaring off. I'll figure it out and let you know when I get it working!

We are currently looking at end of the month for a possible next home game. I'll keep you posted. I'm game any time for a little live poker action. We have nothing down here. We are an hour drive from every casino, thus, my table in the basement is always set up and ready :-)
