You're missing the point of your story - play those more often and you make more straights!

And we've undermined the whole theory of "if a nit raises on the river he always 99.99% has the mortal nuts" because A) he had a hand that is 99.999% never in his range and B) he raised a str8 on a paired board.

Today may have been the perfect storm of a session. Played 2 hours, won 40 big bets, $100 in promo money and comped lunch. I had to walk in and out in the rain but that was acceptable. I feel like this is sustainable long term.

I'll start.

Is 1978 close enough?

Toto was great...Hungate, Paich, and Jeff Porcaro all played on Boz Scaggs' Silk Degrees album.

What about recent electropop remixes of old 80's songs?

Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb



Got interested again because I saw the tribute band on tv, Brit Floyd, do a great version of this on stage.

Re: 2017 ustakes NC, where the steaks are wafer thin (Low Content Thread)

Thorogood was at Talking Stick a short while ago, ofc I went. He sold out the banquet room that they use for big acts including standing room that had some poor unfortunates up against the front wall which is awful. He did his best to play to them by going to the side of the stage, but still. Great show and he must be a terrific guy bec if you check his wiki page most of the band has been w/ him since the beginning.

great song but much bigger win is youtube followed it by playing 4 straight Sweet songs - fox on the run, ballroom blitz, love is like oxygen and little willie

Last edited by shuinthehouse; 08-10-2017 at 10:02 PM. Reason: little willie was the stone nuts song when i was in 2nd grade

Re: 2017 ustakes NC, where the steaks are wafer thin (Low Content Thread)

Holy crap, Howard Beale notwithstanding, you guys (re)listen to some terrible music in the 80s! Last week I was enjoying a pint of Ghost Face Killah at Twisted Pine (not available unless you're at the brewery I believe) when I saw some little kid wearing a t-shirt with a great band that started in the 80s, enjoy:

https://youtu.be/07Y0cy-nvAg

Me: "Alexa, play songs from The Beastie Boys!"

Alexa, in her unexcited monotone: "Shuffling songs from Beastie Boys"
