I'm having a nice lunch at the neighborhood Chinese buffet following a good back workout. I just piled the plate full of honey baked chicken, rice, and broccoli. Okay, and a couple of crab rangoon. I'm 186# according to the gym scale. That's the new benchmark.
Regarding the weekend, I accomplished a lot less than I had hoped. Friday night at The Duo Trio CD release party, I had a great time hanging out with Terry and Nicole. We found ourselves at Town Topic at 3:30am via The News Room. Ouch. I was a zombie for most of Saturday.
Saturday night I skipped going to see the NHL-rules hockey game and grabbed some tasty LC's Barbecue carry out. Then, Nic and I rolled to Adam's birthday party. Fun! til 4am. I got to see the UFC fights, even. Chuck Liddell is an animal.
Sunday, I rested on the sofa and zoned out playing online poker. I doubled my buy-in in a cash Hold'Em game. I came in second in an Omaha tournament and won 300,000 play money chips. I find Omaha to be much more engaging than Hold'Em. I basically only played hands with a suited king or ace and/or pocket pairs. I limped unless I had two pairs or a pair of face cards in my hand. I bet a medium sized bluff at every flush possibility on the board. This worked because I'd get caught bluffing a couple of times, but covered the damage to my stack when I made the same size bet with the nut flush and got callers or the opportunity to reraise. I folded to any post flop raise unless I had the nuts or good odds to draw the nuts. I was chip leader until heads up, then my inexperience showed. I need to practice heads up Omaha. I might start coming in first. I think I'm ready to switch from play money to cash Omaha.
