took a trip to Canterbury last night - apparently, the rake has increased to $5, including a $1 jackpot drop -

this happened two weeks ago - about the time the Fall Classic started - no one has said a word otherwise about it since -

one more reason not to go back to B&M, methinks - the .50/hr comps aren't worth it -

I am fucking pissed - watch out world - I'm back. My poker playing boss who might have read this has gone on to other locales, and no one else gives a shit - forget about it.

I spent two weeks in MT recharging my batteries and two weeks under new management and I'm already looking for excuses to call in sick - fuck me.

The Absolute Poker debacle is starting to make the mainstream - you can read about it here. There is also a 2+2 link that details all the great detective work done to establish that it appears a co-owner of the site was revealing access to the cards, etc, etc... - at the end of the day, I don't play there, but it makes you wonder how much of this goes down without our say so - I don't think I'd play for high stakes online, but these days, any $10 tourney with a 100K guarantee is big stakes in the long run.

spoke to my family who have a local indian casino near them in CA - they have installed one of these automated poker tables. Is it cheaper and less error prone then a dealer - heck yeah - is it better - I highly fucking doubt it - If I wanted to press buttons on a screen, I could do it at home - but I guess you get the socializing -

Right now, there are lots of assholes in well dressed suits who are interested in my views in the war on Iraq and the war on Iran - They are not interested because my opinions have validity, but because by getting them they can then fine-tune their message to have the greatest chance of ensnaring me to go along with their planned war. Those guys can go fuck themselves.

Right now, folks I don't know are sending me comments looking to get ads placed on this site - they use the phony "love the site - great poker content" when my poker content the last year has been for shit - I don't know who I'm more disgusted with - me or them.

Every other night I'm on a job site looking for a dream position that might fit my narrow range of skills or I'm trying to figure out a way to make enough money to tell the world to fuck off so I can move to a cabin in the mountains where I can enjoy the last vestiges of Nature before developers and CA millionaires come in and ruin it for everyone - that and the fucking 4 wheelers.

Bruce is right - this is Radio Nowhere - Britney flashes her crotch and troops watch on the TV screen while the city burns half a world away and a private mercenary army is slowly withdrawn from it's foreign occupation for potential work on it's home turf or just reassigned under a new contractor company.

And I'm starting to think letting the world burn might not be such a bad thing - I'm starting to think when you let the dumbest and richest fucks in the world run things that maybe you deserve what you get - throw off the shackles of feudalism and 50 years of TV and we're throwing them back on -

I am starting to hope the world gets exactly what's coming to it -

The only thing that makes the day any better is a new Steve Earle album on the Ipod - that's enough to get me thru today.

lately, I've been watching Law and Order SVU (the first season) while playing whatever online - you can watch the episodes at Netflix streaming online - probably hurting my game - LOL

Guess I should go buy the Ipod now -

made a bad call 90 minutes in with a guy who raised 3 hands in a row - actually got a bad flop and then made the bad call on the turn

what the fuck do I know about poker anyways -


who am I kidding - I track my progress like glacial melt -

end of the first hr up to 18K in chips - saw AlCan'tHang and Change100 fly by the busto list -

took one hand down with TT - and when looking back at the replay, I see I had KK and got a free big blind - I tend to read over the screen the first couple hrs.

Funny, had I been paying attention when it happened I'd have cried - heh

softest 10K tourney I've ever played

in a fit of uncharacteristic positive thinking, I held off on buying a 160GB Ipod to replace my broken one because they're giving a few away today in the Pokerstars blogger tourney.

1200 players with 10K in starting chips - this oughta be interesting - probably too overly positive -

I'm not even gonna look at the rankings - just my chip stack and the best poker I can play - see ya at the loser's lounge :)
