A last minute drive to Iowa

I received an email a couple of days ago from one of my fellow Bourbonators that he was heading to Diamond Jo's Casino in north Iowa. OhPrincess2 has been sick the last couple of days with a nasty stomach bug and OhPrincess1 got some really big news today, so I really doubted I'd get a hall pass.

Well, hall pass I received.

Probably shoulda stayed home. I'm so rusty at casino cash games. Not a single blogger at my table to keep my champagne wishes and caviar dreams alive. I won the first hand I played at the table. Trudged along until I tangled my AA vs Q10o. 75% of my buy in snatched away by a full house. Believe it or not, I very seriously considered mucking my aces on the river. Woulda saved $70.

I wish I played cash games better. I just never see tournaments anymore.

My buddy is still playing. This casino has free wifi so my iPad will have to keep me occupied for a while. Just don't feel like getting out another buy in will help. I need to play this more. It was fun until my aces got cracked and I had to listen to my gut tell me I told you so.
