There is usually a guy who, when he deals, likes to call the action. Assign that guy as commentator. Give him a mic.

Day 1 was awesome. Got to meet some locals, drink lots of good beer and game it up at small stakes. We played a crazy number of games in our dealer choice table with very few repeats. Sorry to the viewers as that wasn't conducive to your viewing, but meh you could've been playing with us .

We got done at Pali's at 2 and them Schmendr1ck, Breich and I hit up the casino till 5 something playing the best O8 game I've ever seen. Was 3/6 full kill with overs to 12/24. The plays at the table were playing Badugi hands, straddling, double straddling. My favorite was the local double straddle and then flop quads. I made several nut lows and turned a small profit. Schmendr1ck wasn't as lucky as a local turned a 2 outer to a better boat on him. Breich was fairly card dead through our short session.

Casino took me and Schmendr1ck for $30 each in blackjack. We got a ton of 13, 14, and 15 while the local next to us hit 5 blackjacks in about 15 hands. QQ..

On the plus side I got $0.20 back from my $10 free slot play. Winning. Pics on that haul coming from Schmendr1ck later.

Pali met us for lunch and we got the $1i per person buffet for $34 for all 4 of us. Winning. The rooms Pali got us are frigging nice so thanks to him for being awesome enough to get those for us.

Off to day 2 soon.

I should be there in about an hour. Hope we will get a good mixed game going so Palimax and I won't have to just stare across the table at each other.

This looks like so much fun, I almost wish I wasn't such a cheapskate.

Camera will be online in a half an hour or so, tops -- although there won't be much pokering for a while. Teaching craps and tiles while we're shorthanded.

Palimax broke out the Jelly Belly "Beanboozled" glass, and we were working these into pots and peep bets all night.

For each color, there is a good flavor (e.g. chocolate pudding) and a bad flavor (wet dog food). I went three for three on the good flavors, but there were several centipede victims last night. Black is lose-lose: licorice and skunk.

Well, I got screwed. The guy I work(ed) with and was supposed to work for me today decided yesterday evening that he was headed back to NC. Packed up and hit the road last night. So now I'm stuck sitting in my office all day while you guys degen it up. Might try to stop in this evening after I get off work to get a little cash game action in.

I fared well in our only previous confrontation. Granted, flopping the nuts helps, but it was a win for me none the less.

Well I ended up doing pretty good. Outlasted one person to finish in 19th place, and then got ridiculed as I left because I said my wife wanted to go to dinner which is why I wasn't staying for cash games.

Nice meeting you guys!

I'll save everyone the bad beat stories and just say one specific player owned me 3x.
