In on the ground floor!

Had a relaxing night up at my g/f's lakehouse, came back to the city to watch football all day.

Also - got a job in a trading program at one of the top 2 places in NYC! Ship ship!

2012 starting nicely.

Re: ****IT'S A CELEBRATION BITCHES 2012 Life Thread****

So my friend really wanted to go play live poker at the Horseshoe and I decided to join.

There weren't many people at the casino, sadly enough. I played 1/3NL. Hands:

First hand I observe: Old guy open limps and then bets $45 into a $12 pot. I chuckle as everyone folds and thank Jesus for putting me to his left. Third hand in, I pick up 44 and overlimp after a few. Stacks range all over the place and everyone looks to be pretty idiotic. Flop 4 J 3r I bet and get two calls, including the old guy. Turn 2x, I bet semi decent since I know the old guy is peeling everything and both fold.

I overlimp a few more hands and generally just fold them or don't do much.

A5 I overlimp otb after a billion limp in front. Flop 5 4 2. Checked to MP, who bets 1/4th pot. Ohio state fan (actually one of the better players at the table) Raises to $20, I cold call $20. MP thinks and the dealer makes a mistake and turns the card (6). MP spazes out and floor is called, eventually leading to MP folding in a hysterical fashion. Dealer does the new turn (T) and Ohio State c/f-s to my bet.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
I observe some funny hands after that. Old guy from initial hand limps J2o and calls all three streets (pot/pot/shove from a semi shorty redneck to my left) on a JxxxA board and loses to AJ. Redneck is like 300 pounds with a camo hat and a Cabelas shirt and mutters "God, I thought I was beat".

Old guy then limp/calls a raise preflop from SB. Flop J 2 5. Old guy flats pot bet in position. Turn T and insta flats a big bet again. River bricks and the SB insta checks in a dejected fashion. Old guy checks back Q4 and the SB shows KK, saying "I thought you had me".
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I pick up my first semi playable hand all night long with KJ and raise a limper in EP. This is probably a preflop mistake but I was getting bored. Got several callers.

Flop: Q J 2 , I bet like 2/3rds pot and get called in 2 spots. One guy was a middle aged asian who loved to play a bunch of pots. The other was a pretty nitty older guy who I'll call Steelers (for his hat) who showed signs of retardation (would go to war by l/c-ing 63 and then overvaluing his draws on a 45Tx board).

Turn : 2x. I thought about betting again but both players were both semi short and didn't want to get shoved on. Steelers checks to me, I check, and asian checks as well.

River: Qx. Steelers insta checks, I check, hoping to bluff catch, azn obliges by betting $60 into a $110ish pot. Steelers insta folds and I call pretty quickly. Azn mucks and I win. Other old moron says "wow, GREAT call!" and i mutter "yeah, the river was really tough!!"

---------------------------------------------------------

Old guy eventually busts. He went through $400 or so in the quickest manner possible. I took his super short stack one hand where I raised AT and beat his A2 on a 348 board.

There weren't really any other hands to note. I won several other pots preflop or by c-betting the flop. I stole some straddled pots. There was one hand where UTG opened to $15 and I look down at KK. I get my chips ready for a reraise and everyone is throwing their hands in the middle. I hear it's a misdeal and mutter "ah, had Kings" and throw them to the dealer. UTG says "You're killing me dealer" and shows Aces. Probably just dodged one there.

The table really died down overall after the old guy left. Everyone was playing insanely passive and super nitty overall. I found myself making some idiotic mistakes out of boredom, namely raising some poor hands and making stupid bluffs that failed miserably. I decided to call it a day and went to go watch my friend play for 2 hands.

He was up about $200 and then lost all of it by flatting a 3-bet with AK and going broke on a 3 4 Q board, losing all of his profit. I bought us some chicken fried steaks (one true joy at the casino) and walked away with a marginal profit (like $140 or something).

Re: ****IT'S A CELEBRATION BITCHES 2012 Life Thread****

Got a sweet deal this week, really don't want it to end. I'm on a work trip to Malta. The work in the day is good fun & easy and I finish early-ish. I'm staying at really nice with incred facilities including pool, gym, steam room etc. Each morning / evening I get driver pick me up / drop me off at hotel. All meals are expensed (€45 allowance).

But the best thing is that directly next to the hotel (100m from my room) is a casino with €1-€2-(€4) NLH game. The Maltese are terrible at poker. But so far in the two evenings I've played (8.5hrs total) I've won only 2 hands at showdown post-flop (one when I stacked someone for €200) and one for ~ €80 in a limped pot. No other pots won post-flop at show-down (prob like 3 w/o showdown). Around me I see 400bb pots left right and centre and hilarious donk-ish play, whilst I sit 200bb+ effective with whales unable to flop a hand. I've flopped better middle pair twice (hands described above). I have not flopped top pair, set or straight yet. First time I squeezed I got cold-called in 3 spots before it got back to the initial raiser lol so I gave up that! Run good please?

So could I get away with using this as my avatar? Or is it too obvious / ridiculous?

Description: Girl getting hit in face by "sunscreen" from a cartoon sunscreen bottle that has replaced what is most likely the male counterpart to this adult movie scene.

Probably NSFW:

Went to benihana for lunch today, so we're seated with 6 other strangers. This guy ****ing busts out his cell phone and starts jamming to music played through the speaker. He didn't seem too happy with me when I told him his cell phone was not a boom box.
