So I played the mookie last night. I played rather okay. I busted a lot of people and was in the top 3 or 4 most of the way. I had good cards at the right time. I busted Falstaff when he underbet with a flopped TP, turned
Then I stacked of with 77 by calling an all-in re-raise of my open. On the bubble. I was second or third in chips at the time.
I have a a lot of excuses:
1.) I was tired
2.) The re-raise smelled like a steal
3.) I suck at poker
But ultimately I should have folded. I was telling myself to fold as I was calling. I was hoping that I was making a spectacular call rather than a donkey play. My read was bad. The all in was designed to look weak to get me to make the call. I case you were wondering KK isn't a weak hand.
In other news, I won a HORSE SNG last night. I played okay in H, played well above myself in O, was the only person at the table that new a thing about R (other than Drizz), I don't know squat about S or E. If I'm not rolled up in S or have 3 to wheel in E then I have little idea what to do. So in a 5 game mixed format, I only have a respectable knowledge of 2 games, a "can barely find his ass with both hands knowledge of 1 and no idea whatsoever about 2 and I still won.
My strategy is quite simple. Play premium starters for H and O8. Pummel them in Razz because none of these guys know a thing about Razz ( I have an extensive 2 week history crushing the Razz ring games). Play tight as a bugs ass in S and E. Just don't stack off with 77.
Over the last two nights I watched Revenge of the Sith. This is only the second time, the first being in the theater. It is by far the best of the 2nd three. In fact I think its #3 out of the 6. Parts I didn't like:
When Mace goes to arrest Palpatine with 3 other Jedi masters and Palpy dispatches the red shirts like they are practice dummies. That was the worst 4 on 1 strategy I have ever seen.
The "high ground" climax. Thats just lame. I mean I get it. Anakin's hubris gets his arm and legs cut off, but could he just have jumped another 5 feet and had the high ground?
The instant transition from "you have to arrest him" to "I will do all your evil bidding". Why is it that only Palpy has force lightning anyway? Why doesn't Vader ever get it?
If Qui Gon can commune with Yoda and Obi Won, why don't we see him at the end of ROTJ?
The entire series was supposed to be about the redemption of Anakin. Why can't Lucas make him a more sympathetic character? I mean I am sitting there rooting for him to burn to a crisp. He was prick when he was good.
