  1. I prefer to let her do that. I did, was so proud of that hand after, I've told it to people and they're all "wtf" and then I give them my thoughts on it and they're like "ohhh...never woulda thought of that".
  2. I was, but am now dating a 20 year old. The first two days were great. The third day was a huge grind. The 4th day had the potential to make it good but the fact that it wasn't even a real experience definitely put the finishing blows on it. Here's the writeup, I'll spoiler so it doesn't take up the whole page for people who don't want to read it:
  3. You guys used to tolerate my ramblings, so here is a fairly random one... I saw these two posts shortly after all of this happened and wanted to give myself a week or two to try to comprehend how I felt about all that happened. I've received a lot of input and congratulations and questions from a lot of people, and people seem to universally fall into either the Strat group or the Randy group. I had been trying to figure out which group I fell into, when over time it's become clear I fall into both. Obviously, I am really happy about the money-even after sending a heap of it to the government it will end up going directly towards a house, which is a really nice down payment and will result in me being even more secure in my life situation than I already was. I've always tried to frame my poker playing around taking +ev shots at life-changing money, and while this money doesn't really change my life significantly, it is at the very least life affirming. However, the process of winning said money was pretty painful. Drags (Strat's older bro) said he told a friend that that's probably the most miserable 100k I'll ever win, and it's hard to envision a scenario where he's not right. The experience of the final table-getting there, seeing all the pomp and circumstance, being the center of attention, and then getting the money in the first hand and losing after the absurd tank by Gross is not one that will resonate on a positive level for me, perhaps ever. The WSOPC final table I made in the spring, while a smaller cash, resonates as a way more positive experience for me, not just due to the place I finished but also because of how enjoyable the experience was. I harken back to the infamous LFT thread from one of the pokerhaus clowns back in the day, and this experience has definitely crystallized a lot of that for me. Sometimes, when you're in the middle of an experience, it is difficult to see anything but the joy or sorrow that said experience affords, and if you're completely disconnected from the experience, it's hard to see anything but the result. Real life is probably a combination of both, and figuring out ways to resolve those two things together is a skill I'll probably be working on long past the days where I am as old as Ron. I have a decently long writeup of hands from the tourney, if you guys want it, I can toss it in. I check in every now and again to see how you guys are all doing, and remain happy that while things have changed, they also haven't changed.
  4. Yes, both of those things qualify as "marginal interest".
  5. Sigh, I went one level too far.
  6. That's not the explanation, dude got his money within 6 hours of posting.
  7. But the thread is gonna die soon, right? Right?
  8. I've talked with 3/4 of the finalists and can confirm that none of them would be higher than you'd expect. Grinder is 6'13 and sounds like you'd expect, and gobears sounds like your standard Californian. I'm pretty sure I know who should have won that bracket but I don't want to say for fear of angering him.
  9. Yeah, I'll be sure to not link them to this post...
  10. It's not even close. Not even close. You guys are comic-bad, like the Cubs. We've always got hope and then end up having things go as terribly as possible at the last possible finish. In order, we have lost Monday Night Football games the past 3 years when a) we were up by 8 with less than a minute left, gave up a touchdown, stopped the 2 point conversion, then they recovered the onside kick and kicked a 53 yard field goal for the win, B) we gave up a 56 yard field goal with 47 seconds left and then missed a 47 yard field goal, and c) we hold an 11 point lead over a team widely considered one of the best in football with 5 minutes left and give up 2 touchdowns, the second thanks to our kick-returner fumbling the kickoff with 2 minutes and change left when he could have kneeled in the endzone and taken the touchback.If it wasn't for the Syracuse title a few years back my fandom would be completely ruined by a trio of teams that are consistently hopeful but can never get there.
  11. Yeah I've had a big week, unfortunately this is the only league that (currently?) I'm in that's not for money, and I've already lost 3 in the others with 1 up in the air (Brady +7 versus Gostowski and Moss).
  12. Probably one of my favorites ever, the above got me to actually laugh out loud. Well done.
  13. I like how almost all of the slugging percentages are lower than the on base percentages. We'd be an SP's nightmare.
