I was just chilling out watching the Michigan/Notre Dame game last night. Then I got the phone call.
Lori answered the phone -- it was a poker buddy of ours. Lori had to work today, so she was out.
A home cash game -- I'm a fricken tourney player -- but screw it!! Had the buddy pick me up, even though the place was only 3/4ths of a mile away.
Only 7 people -- all bought in for about $20 -- blinds were .10/.20 -- but it's the same people I play with, when it's not odd to see the 40 to 60 dollar pot.
And for a few hours i was up -- Battled well. Was up about 20-25.
Then it happened. . .
I have K-7 offsuit
I flat called out of postion.
a couple checked -- I raised $3
One caller -- a loose aggressive player I have played against for years.
I shoved -- he called.
and then showed his pocket Aces
I still had my buy-in -- and it was getting late -- and they will play until dawn.
Then my journey began. . . .
I didn't have a ride home, and Lori said she could pick me up -- but not past 12am cause she had to work -- I knew that -- so I walked.
It's only 3/4 of a mile -- anyone can do that -- unless you get lost LOL
So i get lost.
We live by an expressway -- so once I realize I was lost I went by sound. And heard it I did. about a mile the wrong way -- but i found it!!!! Buttttttttttt there was "the wall".
I had to cutt into a person's backyard and scale a 8 foot wall
When I scaled, I noticed i was now about a mile and a half away.
I hid in the bushes and called Lori to pick me up.
Lori: "It's 12:30 -- where are you?"
Ronin: "In the bushes!!"
I only played it cause it was a bunch of loose limpers. So I limped too -- and hit the flop
Of course, and see your point -- but as Phil Ivey once said to Howard Lederer. . . .
"You get your chips your way, I'll get my chips mine."
hehehehehehehe :P and I scaled a wall!!!! :)
(And see what I did?? I made Tony into Lederer) LOL
