  1. Why does everything you write lately point us towards the fact that you won entry into the USPC? Coincedence? I think not. Good luck tomorrow. Don't play like a maniac.Man I can't pull one over on you can I Mexico!!Thanks, I will be thinking pleasant thoughts about you and Royal the entire time, buddy!

    600th post!!

    Okay so it's not a major milestone like my 1,000th but I won't be posting again most likely until Sunday or next week so I figured I would get my 600th post out of the way.Okay never mind, don't know what the hell just happened, but I could have sworn that my post count showed 599.I must be drinking and not know it. Go about your business.
  3. I wonder if anyone has ever made a Sunny Delight Screwdriver? The ex and I used to pour a full bottle of Five 'o' Clock Vodka into a half full gallon jug of Sunny Delight before we'd go out with friends.Our relationship being based purely on alcoholic tendencies and a shared love of cheap vodka might be why she's my ex.Man, could that girl drink some vodka. <Sniff> I gotta go make a call. <Sniff, Tearing Up>This was a very funny post!I am getting all teary eyed myself for you!
  4. The page is down right now but I will check it out when I get back since I am from PA and looking for some decent home games.Congrats! A win is a win.
  5. the shirt idea made me laugh. Just be you. Remember how bad druff came off trying to ham it up for tv. some of us are just naturally funny at the table. I've been blessed with that gift. Unfortunately, I haven't been blessed with great poker skills. Thus, I will never get to show how truly funny I am to the world b/c I will never make a final table.I was gonna use a line from School of Rock but I forgot it. It was gonna be funny though.I know what I would wear....you would love this Ron. My sister got me this shirt...It has Will Ferrell on the front in his Ron Burgundy costume and under
  6. DNA you never cease to amaze us with the pix you come up with!I am still waiting for the picture of the shooter from the grassy knoll though, thought you would have come up with that one by now.
  7. Heh heh. Sorry. The original post just struck me the wrong way I guess. I think you made the wise choice. Good luck.No problem.Believe me I take all of this very seriously, but at the same time I have a sense of humor and don't ever want to take myself too seriously. Life is way to short. I am a reasaonably successful and well adjusted individual but I love games of all kinds and refuse to completely grow up. The only reason I even for a moment considered goofy, is that once you have established yourself as a poker player with skill you certainly do not need any kind of gimmick. However
  8. Thanks four. I am taking it one day at a time, kinda like a 12 step program!Hopefully I will make a decent showing day by day and last at least long enough to show up in the Card Player updates.In any event I take it pretty damn seriously, but at the same time I want to soak it all in and have a good time.While I know there will be some very good players, I don't think the competition will be nearly as stiff as the WSOP or the WPT.I think this event event, though it is a $10k buy in and televised, is kind of like a bastard stepchild in comparison to the other tourney's and as such probably wi
  9. Are you in Argentina right now?I was born in Argentina. Have never been back, but would love to someday.yeah. i will be here until christmas. my mom was born in argentina and i lived here between the ages of 10 and 12. i am now down here teaching a special international relations seminar as part of my requirements for getting my phd.Very cool, enjoy! I will one day go back for a visit with my family. Going as far as Argentina requires time, I figure at least 3 weeks to really enjoy yourself and get to know the country and money.I have had both the time and the money, just never at the same
  10. Unless you want to play shirtless with "goldenpalace.com" written across your chest, I cant imagine what kind of company is looking to endorse a loser who acts like an idiot the first time a TV camera gets pointed in his direction. How much endorsement money do you think Druff made off the seat twirl incident? This reminds me so much of my 3 year old. Kids crave attention. They dont care if it's good or bad, so they act like little idiots to get noticed. This is something we hope they will grow out of as they gain some maturity. Based on Druff's table antics, and the existence of this th
  11. Yes I had it happen when I was in my super satellite 2 weeks ago and fortunately I ended up winning but one guy flapping his gums cost be $6,800 in chips!I had Ace, Queen and the flop came Ace, 8 something, can't remember and not relevant.I had been playing against this very arrogant and agressive jerk. I go all in and he is going to call, which I want and he even says "I should go with my gut here"He thought I was trying to bluff him out of the pot, we had been going at each other all night.This older gentleman who folded and is talking to someone else mentions King, 8.Well the guy that is t
  12. Not sure this definition is any better than cow testicle but here you go:Taurine (from taurus = ox, as it was discovered in ox bile) or 2-aminoethanesulfonic acid is an acidic chemical substance found in bile which acts as an emulsifier for ingested lipids and assists in their absorption. Taurine may also come from synthetic materials.
  13. Caffeinated water, interesting. I assume it tastes like regular water, you just get the caffeine boost?Yeah there's this stuff on the market called Vitamin Water that's flavored, and one kind has caffeine in it. It doesn't taste *too* bad, I can't stand the taste of Red Bull, or that new Pepsi One for that matter.Don't know about the Pepsi One, as I can't stand diet drinks, but I guess I have gotten used to the taste of Red Bull.Again I am amazed that people actually pay so much for the crap, but for free it definitely does give you some energy.I don't care how much money I ever make or have,
  14. Coke, Coffee. Soft drinks are free (for players) at the Aviation Club de France too. It's a few miles away from the Taj tho.Hopefully one day I will be fortunate enough to play there in a WPT event and then I can see if the free Pepsi's in France taste as good as they do in the USA!

  16. Well, I am thinking about the main event starting tomorrow for me at the Taj, where if I get some decent cards, I hopefully won't have a choice but to play for 10-12 hours a day.I wonder how Daniel keeps his concentration and energy level up for so many hours at a time.The most I have played in a live tourney has been about 6 hours and it definitely gets to be pretty grueling.Can't wait though as it should be a blast, regardless of the outcome!
  17. Hmmm, Monkey Urine, is that anything like Ox blood or Yak Milk?It is a sad day when Ron Mexico answers a question seriously and someone else has to take up the humor slack!
  18. Are you in Argentina right now?I was born in Argentina. Have never been back, but would love to someday.
  19. I fold it.Besides the fact that your hand is not made, and while Jack high flush is pretty solid if you catch the heart, you can easily still lose to an Ace, King, or Queen high flush.Yeah sometimes you win that one, but I think more often then not, it is a pretty good way to go broke.
  20. You don't find that drinking takes some of your edge and or mental awareness away?I guess Scotty Nguyen does okay and he seems to drink like a fish, but then again part of it could be an act, since he seems to remain pretty sharp and alert!
  21. Caffeinated water, interesting. I assume it tastes like regular water, you just get the caffeine boost?I found Red Bull to be probably the best for alertness after long hours that I have found. Better than Pepsi, although probably not so good for you, when consuming several cans.But it can't be too good for you to plant your ass for hours at a time on an uncomfortable chair either.
  22. Sorry, should have been clearer. B&M not online.
  23. I am curious as to what others drink while playing.I never drink alcohol while playing, but encourage the rest of you to do so. I either drink Pepsi, or water and recently have found Red Bull to be a great drink to keep up the energy and alertness.I wouln't pay $2.50 per can or whatever they charge but the Taj serves it for free, and for free it is a great way to go.So what do the rest of you drink, particularly if you are going to be playing for a long session?
  24. Thanks Angler and all the positive folks on the board. I sent a message to Elkang regarding the structure but he may not be around to answer it so I thought I would post it here to see if anyone knows the answer.I guess I will know for sure tomorrow but am curious anyway. I called the Taj and was given two different answers regarding the structure. The woman I spoke to second sounded more credible, besides I prefer what she told me. She claims the structure for the main event is as follows:Blinds start at $25-50Starting chip count = $20kLevels = 90 minutes eachThis is a great structure in m
  25. Yeah, I don't think anyone will know for sure until we get our hands on the 360 ourselves.They do seem to be working pretty hard on it, but of course, going from nvidia to ati is going to be a problem. Microsoft has stated that single layer games will probably be OK with the integrated emulation software, but that multiple layer games will demand an additional patch. Then again, they say they'll put patches for the best selling games on the 360 per default.Will that include Stacked? Maybe. I don't know if Stacked will be single or dual layer either."Everything is going to be fine," is an overs
