Geeks and Bloggers and Boobs 

Definitely getting my full geek on in the next few weeks. X-Men: Wolverine comes out today which I'll probably check out as soon as possibe. I was one of those few sketchy folks who downloaded the pirated version to get a first look. Sure, a lot of the CGI effects were incomplete but the story was there. I'll be there to see it in it's complete version. Maybe the studio actually leaked the incomplete version to keep people from thinking about XMen 3.

I saw Negreanu's half second cameo in the downloaded version and had to go back a few times to actually realize it was him. Screen cap below.

Really geeking out is buying my Star Trek: Imax tickets already for next Thursday. I'll put on a nice little buzz beforehand than watch Skylar play young Spock. All that should keep me somewhat in the good graces of the geek squad.

Til then I'm just going to stay drunk.


Sunday starts the last month of the Battle of the Blogger Tournaments Challenge 4 with the Brit Blogger game at 16:00ET. I'll be putting up a 2 month recap on Poker From the Rail in the next week with winners and profiles. I'll be interested to see who wins this week's Mookie.

Pauly won last week and he was playing opiate free.
I won this week and I was stone cold freaking sober.
Next week? Maybe Daddy will win without having a body part in a farm animal.

Sitting in G-Vegas during my roadtrip I made fun of Otis for playing on twitter, even though he was one of the first I know on the site. I think even Dr. Jeff got in a little ragging. Somewhere along the line I think I made the comment "you'll never catch me on friggin twitter".


But I promise to never turn into the blogfather and abandon my 3 dedicated readers by posting to nothing but twitter.

I've also had some fun on a silly site call blip.fm, nothing special site but I keep throwing songs around and annoying everyone with my very narrow view of proper music. I need to get back out to the bar before I go completely over the edge.

How the hell am I going to survive 8 weeks in Vegas for the series?


Daniel Negreanu in XMen: Wolverine

The rest of this you call almost blame on Otis. He seemed a little doubtful of my endless database of semi and fully nekkid women. I'm a big fan of the female form. 5 mostly safe and 5 not at all safe for work pics. Enjoy the weekend and see you at the Brit Blogger game on Sunday.

And just to prove it's not all this dull safe for work stuff, some pics that aren't even close to SAFE FOR WORK. NSFW

Don't ask me how 

That's right, it's official. Winning tournament poker is pure donkey luck. I'm walking talking living proof that no skill is involved when I won the Mookie last night. Through no fault of my own, I was the last one standing last night after a series of hands that I'm afraid to go back and peruse. Not too many suckouts on the night but a shit-ton of luck. More luck than skill in my game.

So everyone already in the TOC, and those coming after, there will be one more stack of dead money sitting in your way for the WSOP. I do make at least the fourth player in the TOC who will already be in Vegas for the series after Dr. Pauly, CK, and F-Train won their seats. Maybe we can all take opposite corners of the hooker bar and do a shot each level.

Congrats to TuscaloosaJohn on winning April's Player of the Month award. One month left in the challenge, time to get moving.

I suppose I owe a few pics as thanks to the poker gods.

Hipsters all around 

Good times last weekend when I decided to run into town with BigMike to one of his favorite bars. Fun times with friends and enough booze to help us forget that we were surrounded by hipsters and kids playing make believe. $1 PBR pounders and cheap ass monster shots can do that for you.

We cruised through some old school Philly hangouts from the past where we used to see the guys dressed in pink polos with pucca shell necklaces loading into their IROC-Z's. Now the area if full of the pierced, tattooed and tweaking. There was so much itching and scratching going on that it was getting contagious.

We survived the night on cheap booze and many outdoor smoke breaks.


Not much response from the happy go-lucky post of yesterday, I suppose I should have realized I was speaking into the great void of entitlement.

It looks like TuscaloosaJohn all but has the April Player of the Month locked up, congrats to CK on the win. I missed the Skillz game last night because I forgot to pre-register and missed it the start. I won't miss The Mookie this evening. How about we shoot for 100 players tonight? It would be nice to have another Mookie prizepool over $1,000.

Make it happen!

Here there be hipsters!

Attracted to shiny objects.

Everything is fine in the darkness.

But avoid bright lights. Surprised they didn't scatter.

Blogger Skillz Game tonight 

Good times, I gotta tell you. I can't tell you how much joy I get out of each morning when I wake up to crunch yet another set of numbers then go through the daily routine of reading bloglines and catching up as much of the world as I can. That's free number crunching if you can believe, the BBT challenges have nothing to do with my regular gig. So I get all warm and fuzzy at the support from my friends and the players. What's a few WSoP seats between friends?

I'd much rather be wasting away my time in the morning worrying about hangovers and what I did the night before. Bikinis and booze instead of poker players complaining about free shit. Maybe I should have had just one big blogger tournament with less prizes and force you to post a SEO-friendly banner all over the blogs. Maybe I just need to post constant pictures of half nekkid women and see how that goes.

Or maybe I'm just grumpy because I'm stuck up north for the time being and wasting rent money on a Key West place while I'm dealing with business up here.

I suggest everyone come out to enjoy the time and free stuff while you have the chance, you know the money train is going to stop sooner or later. I'll be playing in the Blogger Skillz game tonight, a little Stud/8 fun time. You think 4-card bingo is fun? At least you won't have Waffles to deal with. I didn't even realize his backer gave up on him. I thought he was just cheating his backer.

Leaderboards are on the right, TuscaloosaJohn just hanging onto April's top spot with only two more events.
