Hey, Santa Brung Me a Mookie!
HuntsVegas is having a big game this Saturday over in Alabama and Surflexus was kind enough to offer me a ride with him and “Peaches.” With around 40 people in the tournament, this is a great opportunity to end 2008 in the black. It will be a whirlwind trip. We will leave Hotlanta around 12:30 EST Saturday afternoon and depending on how deep we go, we will come straight back at the end of the game. My brother lives about 5 miles away from the game and his kids are out of town for the night, so we might crash at his place. We’ll just play it by ear, wish me luck.
I played like crap in the PokerStars freeroll and tried to play a little more solid in the Bodonkey. I did much better and almost made it to the final table. I shoulda bet the flop, but I was trying to be too sneaky and trap. What a horrible turn card! No board pairing for me and I bounce in 11th. Oh well, we'll see how the rest of freerolling week goes.
I have registered to play in the PokerStars World Blogger Championship of Online Poker!

The UGA boys opened up their final game to outsiders to give it more of a Main Event feel with a higher buy-in. We had 20 players and it awarded 500 bucks to 1st place and 4th would get you back your buy-in plus another 50.
Since Kaj's neighborhood didn't have their game Friday night and Stacie had already made other plans, I was able to play in Kat's rebuy donkament. I joined Joanada, Buddy, Muhctim, and NumbBono for some ridiculous web cam action with my new toy. I picked up a couple of webcams for a good price on Black Friday.
We got off of work early on Wednesday and took off Friday for a great long holiday weekend. Stacie, her mother, and I drove down to Dothan on Thursday morning and had Thanksgiving with Dad, my aunt and cousins. My aunt always makes my favorites like egg noodles, mashed potatoes, and a buttery squash casserole. Stacie calls it my plate of white and yellow starches. It is a meal I look forward to every year but I can’t always make it due to scheduling. We stuffed our stomachs, loaded up a cooler full of my favorite leftovers and then my cousin wanted to play some hold’em. 5 of us decided to play a $5 winner take all tournament. Only my brother had ever played with blinds so we had to show them the ropes. After some leisurely playing, I was able to take my family’s money. Nothing like free food and some extra cash. My cousin wanted to win his money back so after my brother headed back to Huntsville, we played another game. Stacie joined us for a little 4 person game. I got heads up with my aunt and we chopped so she could get to bed. She had to be at work at 5AM. Ahh, gotta love retail management. Stacie and I took my dad and her mom to IHOP for brunch and then we drove back to Atlanta Friday afternoon.
