FCPHA: Big Table in the Back


Recommended Posts

Hey all.Not fired.Looks like it turned out to be a big misunderstanding. There was a dealer fired on Wednesday. Then apparently someone misheard that there were 2 dealers fired (which I don't think was true). This info, combined with the fact that I left 2 hours early Wed (because I signed the early out sheet), must've led someone to speculate I was the other one fired. I guess over the course of Thursday and Friday the rumor just snowballed and everyone had heard about it. Plus, I'm off Thurs, Fri, Sat so no one saw me all weekend. So I walk in today and everyone's like "You know the word is you got fired?" It was actually nice to see people happy to find out I wasn't whacked. One guy I work with sees me on break and says "Man, everybody's been talking about you all weekend!"Anyway, pretty normal workday then. Didn't get called to the shift office, so I feel pretty safe. Just looks like misinformation that really had nothing to do with me.

Happy Fourth of July to those that celebrate. I have a couple of Angus steaks marinating in K.C.Masterpiece Steakhouse blend as I type. That will go with a shrimp cocktail, twice baked potato and corn

Vegas Dream I had this morning:I'm sharing a room with Yvonne and it seems that we have just arrived. We're chatting when Mrs. Vold comes in. She wants some lotion for her legs. I get out my lotion and put it on her legs, then I put some on mine. She's talking about how Vold is on a date with his gf. She's not upset about this, btw. She heads back to her room. Yvonne and I are lying on the bed chatting. We are laughing about the fact that we're staying at Circus Circus and that they gave us free Circus Circus tote bags. The tote bags are cheesy and we discuss how we're not going to carry around a bag advertising that we are at Circus Circus unless we're taking it somewhere where we might loose it. Then Yvonne is talking about her stay in Vegas and how she's staying on after we all go home to have surgery on her hand from some renowned hand doctor there. I ask her, "What?? How did we know know about this and what surgery are you having on your hand??" She holds up her right hand out and I see that her thumb is all short and small and stubby. I'm shocked but she claims it's always been that way. I ask her if she can move it across to touch her pinky and she says she can't. I say, "You don't have an opposable thumb? Do you know what that means? You're a monkey!" She says, "Yeah, yeah like I haven't heard that before." Then we start giggling and I snuggle up to her and kiss her on her cheeks. We're lying there for a minute when some of you all come into our room. Mrs. Vold is back, along with Henry and Josh. Josh has like 6 different bottles of liquor and some shot glasses. He's pouring Cuervo (It's my dream so it's not Patron!), Makers Mark, some kind of strong mint schnapps (Yukon Jack?), Jager and who knows what else. He hands me a shot of tequila and I think to myself, "Oh no, we just got here and this is how it begins. Lord help us."

Glad you are not fired HenryKeep running good at the pokah ScottGet her out by end of month KristenNice warm up JoshPretty relaxed weekend. My parents came in to town this weekend, was good to see them again. Brandon game Friday night; Bethany double header saturday morning; Denny, my Dad and I played poker Saturday afternoon; went out for Hibachi dinner Saturday night where I drank WAYYY too much Saki, they left Sunday morning, poker again Sunday afternoon. I discovered I play much better poker only looking at 1 card versus 2 cards. Played an entire tournament only looking at 1 card (and people knew I was only looking at 1 card). Only time I got to look at 2nd card was if there was a raise to me. Finished 2nd.In a different game I laid down KK preflop in BAR POKER which is pretty much unheard of and I was pretty sure before that moment I would never fold KK preflop in bar poker, especially when it was HU, but I was 99% sure the guy had AA and turns out I was right, he showed AA. Would have been busted in first 15 minutes, but went on to finish 3rd in that game. Looks like Tom Dwan about busted Vegas last night lol. Every poker pro in the world seems to have some sort of prop bet against him winning a WSOP bracelet laying him 3:1. He got HU in $1500 event last night and finished 2nd. No one knows exactly how much is on the line, but he stated if he won that tournament it would have been his largest single day payout every and we know he has had several +/- 5 million dollar swings before.Hi

So, she mentioned that she's been offered a room with some friends. If it works out, she could be there by the first of next month, maybe sooner. It's closer to downtown, which improves her job prospects because she could walk. Plus, those friends are a lot more fun than we are. Fingers crossed.

for those that don't leave the boat, thread in general, but here is the yahoo news report ....http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/lifestylegamingpokeroffbeatLAS VEGAS, Nevada (AFP) – Poker star Phil Laak halted the longest poker game in history at 115 hours early Monday, nearly two days longer than the current mark recognized as the official world record."Wow, 115 hours, I should have my head examined," said Laak, as the number appeared on the running clock on a laptop screen next to his seat at the Bellagio Hotel-Casino in Las Vegas. "I am definitely sick."The 37-year-old pro began playing at 12:00 pm local time last Wednesday at the famous resort and quit at 7:00 am on Monday saying he still felt fine but didn't want to "do any more damage to my body than necessary."

someone got fired at my workplace this morning, it wasn't me. I'm sort of dissappointed.

I'm sure you could think of some fun ways to go out if you wanted.
