I didn't want to drive to the hospital because I didn't want to bloody up my car. I planned to go if it slowed down. It didn't, I got woozy and called 911 because if I passed out I might bleed out. Similar happened to Brock Lesner while training, except his was more severe. He nearly died and they had to resect a part of his intestine. I was much more fortunate, a colonoscopy showed the diverticulitis, not cancer or anything else.

It just stopped while I was in the waiting room. I pooped blood once while waiting and that was it. Still had to spend 3 days in the hospital until all my stuff was showing normal. What an idiot, I never figured a minor eating change like that was so dangerous.

Yeah, first time I saw that it was freaky. I've seen swimming pools on elevated floors, but this is much bigger.

There's a whole miniature Venice up there. Except for the gondolas, they are full sized.

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

UTG straddles (which doesn't count as a raise in this 4 raise max casino) and has a small stack (3 or 4 small bets). 2 cold calls. I raise to 3 bets with KK in cutoff, button makes it four bets, big blind calls, straddler calls (and is all-in), cold-callers call, I reraise to 5 bets but is only 3rd raise so not yet capped, and button caps it at 6 bets. Everyone calls (both cold callers didn't have enough chips to call the full 6 bets).

6 players, 32 small bets (3 people all-in) - Flop: AQ8r
BB bets, I call, button calls
6 players (3 all-in), 17.5 big bets: Turn: K!!!
BB bets, I call, button calls
I delay my raise partially to see if button did 6 bet with AA and is slow playing.
6 players (3 all-in), 20.5 big bets: River: 4 (no flush possible)
BB bets, I raise, button folds, BB reluctantly calls (and shows AQs).

I scoop a 24.5 big bet pot.

Or, I suppose, i could have just called preflop. Button may have just raised to isolate, so if I call preflop, maybe he calls and 6 players see the flop for 2 bets each. Then I could have safely folded the flop which had an A instead of creating the odds for me to call to hit my 2 outer. :-)

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

I like preflop and the flop. Then I'd raise the turn because the pot is huge. As the pot gets bigger, you should raise and reraise more and more for value.

So I think it would follow that if KK is a raise on the turn vs different preflop action, which I think it is in many situations, then it almost surely is a raise on the turn vs this preflop action.

I think another novelty of this hand is that the button definitely didn't have any of these hands:

AA, KK, AKs, AKo, QQ, AQs, AQo.

So if he can have worse hands than those, the preflop 5 bet is really good.

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

Hello fellas-

Haven't posted in a bit cause October has been a **** month. Started out with my daughter and her S.O. came to visit. She was already in love with Remi and has convinced me that she should have him with her in CA when her Golden dies which will be soon because he has cancer and is 14.

Then someone gets water in the port of my iPhone and it is DOA when I take it to the iHospital. (Yes, there's one in Nashville,) Dude sys, "No worries, just get a new phone and we'll back it up from the Cloud." It's probably not necessary to tell you that I never enabled that "feature." So any of y'all that know me irl, please drop me a text- including who you are- so that I can populated my new contacts db.

And finally, I was training my daughter's new dog last Thursday. I was using a 30 foot check cord to reinforce his stay, come, heel commands and decided I'd let him stay outside so I tethered one end of it to a porch post. I walked back to him since he was on 'stay' to release him from the command. He was a little excited and ran around me a couple of times. Then he saw a bird and bolted for it. The check cord tightened quickly about both ankles and violently jerked my legs from beneath me. I took a nasty spill and landed directly on my left hip. I even heard the "snap" when the hip broke. (It caused an intertrochanteric fracture for any one that has an interest.) Went to my hospital but had to be transferred to Nashville hospital due to insurance plan coverage; got operated on Friday; still in hospital awaiting transfer to rehab center for about five days. Wouldn't have been nearly so bad if I hadn't been on blood thinners which caused a massive hematoma in my thigh. That's why I have to do the rehab so that I can relearn how to make my quads, hamstrings and adductors work again.

October sucks.

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

Remi is at my sister's until either I get back in the saddle or my daughter's dog dies. I certainly didn't get mad at the dog for doing what he was bred to do. However, he should feel fortunate that I had never had an injury like this and knew how bad the post-OP **** was gonna be.

Hope you're feeling better soon, doc, but I gotta say that before it got serious I was thinking 'of all of the ways to get injured this has to be the silliest.......'

leo doc I hope you feel better.

I take it you're not on one of the blood thinners that has a reversal agent?

ETA: I guess there's just one?

ETA2: Oh, I see. Portola's isn't approved.
