They jimmied the passenger side door lock, popped the ignition, stole the stereo. I expected all of that. I even figured there would be cig burns and liqour bottles. But then the had to go and run into shit with it.
The adjuster said normal theft damage is usually $1000. Add in a new bumber, a couple of quarter panels and a tail light and I think we can see it busting throught the $4000 mark. Thats about where it blue books.
The real pain is that it was paid for and running well. It had 95,xxx miles but ran like a top. The wife and I have never car shopped together before. We were married when I bought this one but I just called her and told her. The other car I bought off my dad and the truck we inherited.
So last night I am tilting at .25/.50 LHE on FTP. I am playing my normal game, up a few BB"s after an orbit or two . Then I see a guy go off on tilt. He bluffs and gets called by 6th pair. His flopped top two get rivered.
I pick him out and decide to play with him. Practice my tilting for Vegas. He is on the button and I am two off. It limps x1 to me and I limp. Tilter limps, SB completes and BB checks.
I have QJo. Flop is AQx. checks to tilty who bets. Bets around. Turn is a 7. Checks to tilty, one call two folds and I pop him. I am figuring him for a weak Ace. He smooth calls. River is a J. I bet, he calls. And then goes all whiney bad beat. He was a man, admitted the bad beat whiney cranky babiness. But I couldn't resist.
"Bad Beat stories don't start with A3o"
Thats right. I am playing .25/.50. This level of play most closely mirrors what I encounter at the 2-6 SLHE and 2-4 and 3-6 LHE games in Vegas.
