The other day I decided to play some online poker. You see, I've got some moola in my BCP account just sitting there with no current way to withdraw or transfer so I figure'd that I'd just see if I can run it up or not.
I opened two tables and played for maybe an hour total. I forgot how boring and drab online poker is. Over the course of the hour I played I maybe raised 12 times and I only got called on one of those Raises. I don't know if it's bad luck or timing or whatever but really? 1 out of 12? I wasn't even raising nearly as much as the other people were. I'm going to assume it's because nobody had a "read" on me and by that I mean I wasn't in their databases so they didn't know how many hands I play and from what position and my 3 betting tendencies. They didn't know what to do because their computer program didn't have an answer yet.
Either way I got to piss away about 4 KK's over the course of the session and I was getting quite bored when Josie sat at my table. We chatted back and forth for a bit and the rest of the table was really boring so I opened up an AIM session with her instead, mostly so that I could use curse words that don't come out looking like *******.
Next thing you know we have a small pot and Josie is all in for no reason at all. TBC had just recently joined the table with a MIN buy-in and in honor of him I sent Josie a message saying "This is going to be very TBC of me" and then I called her push with AK.
The board ran our dry and Josie scooped the pot while I went on to concentrate on my other table. Josie, the brash person she is, kept apologizing to me for taking my scooby snack money and promised me many drinks (and then later proceeded to show me her 36c's). I tried to tell her that I was treating it as play money but she wasn't happy with that answer because it isn't really play money - whatevs.
20 minutes later I over doubled up at my other table to give me profit for the evening and I quit.
Now lets fast forward to last night.
I am at a table with a lot of raises and re-raises. Sneaking into a hand in late position for $10 is considered a win. Money flying everywhere.
I end up in with 45 off and there's $80 in the pot to the flop. By the river I have a straight and feel confident about that until someone else turns over their Quads! blah.
2 orbits later I get dealt AA on the button and can't wait for at least a raise and some calls to get to me, however the table knows that I have some cards and it folds to me for the first time all session. I make a very small raise and the blinds also go away and a tiny profit is mine.
A few orbits later I get involved in another pot that is about $60 to the flop and flop 2 pair. I check, there is a bet and a call in front of me and I proceed to raise it to 4x the bet. The original better calls and the next guy pushes. I call the push and the 3rd man goes away. My 2 pair (top and bottom) is up against top pair and a flush draw. Turn is a blank and the river pairs his other card giving him a higher two pair.
I quit because poker is rigged.
Next thing you know I'm watching the Avengers in IMAX 3D and I'm going to say either I'm just used to it, things are getting better or the movie was just that fucking good. The Avengers rocked, I didn't once want to complain about the whole 3d thing and IMAX was also pretty cool even though I suspect IMAX just stands for "bigger fucking screen than normal."
The preview for Spiderman has me warming up to the movie some even though I still think it's too soon to reboot the series. I loved the Rami trilogy and wish they would have just continued from there with a different Spidey instead of a total reboot of the series.
The preview for Dark Knight Rises also got me all warm and tingly in my pantie area and I can't wait for that movie even though I hate Christian Bale, at least Hines Ward keeps making all of the previews :)
There were some other previews that looked cool, but those were the ones really standing out in my mind after the fact.
Going to be a good summer for movies and I'm sure I"ll hit up both of those in IMAX even though I have to take out a Small Business Loan to be able to afford to go.
wattttt?????? hate christian bale????/ReplyDelete
waht about american psycho??!!!
spiderman looks epic but i think kirsten dunst is needed for mj :((((((
OK, more to the point I really hate his Batman voice.Delete
He has had some other good movies.
Even the Majestic?Delete
When you play on BCP what stakes do you play? How many at the table? I have some money there that's just rotting so I guess I should play but I never seem to have the time.ReplyDelete
Yes Avengers was just freaking awesome. Didja see that, although it is totally against my blog's policy, I did indeed review it there? Also, didja notice that I gave you a gratuitous link in there?
Interesting, I didn't see the trailers for Spidey or Dark Knight at my showing. But then, I didn't spring for either Imax or 3D.
Now, speaking of Spidey, the first one was awesome, the second disappointed me (because so many folks said it was better than the 1st--they were wrong) and the third one was pretty much a dud in my book.
And Fboyyyyyy is right, I will miss Dunst in the series. I can't put my finger on them, but there are two things about her that I really, really like.
I love that scene:)Delete
Wow -- I thought that I was the only one who had seen the 36C's. Welcome to the club.ReplyDelete
The power of Skype.:)Delete
LightNing, so you've seen the legendary 36c's, huh? Well, according to Josie that would have left you "thunderstruck".Delete
Rob, I felt like I was caught in the middle of a railroad track.Delete
I felt that there was no turning back.
grrouchie, I was addressing LightNing. I've played poker with you so I knew you were bluffing.Delete
You guys are so sillyDelete
Omfg! The only place lightning (and grrouch) have seen my breasts is in their dreams ...you know Rob....the same place you've seen them. And that doesn't really count cuz your imagination doesn't do me justice.Delete
Well, I knew grrouchie was lying but I had faith in Lightning, I thought maybe in one your Vegas "bonding" meetings you had taken them out as a special treat for him. Now I know not to believe Lightning any more.Delete
Josie, with all due respect, you have NO IDEA what my imagination is capable of! :)
You're right Rob. I don't know what your imagination is capable of...YET.Delete
That's a very intriguing comment, Josie. Are you planning to get into my imagination and my dreams? Oh my god, I saw that movie, Leonardo DiCaprio was in it.Delete
u still havent added me on BCP so i can watch u play. and ive deposited on there a lot, also use the transfer feature alot. why is it that u Josie and sickcallmggee grump etc wont ever send in thier ID so they can withdraw their winings and transfer back and forth? really bugs me when others wont do this, and yet i did all that work and hassle. it makes me feel psycologically like others think i am somewhat beneath them and they are somewhat superior and that i should have to suffer indignities that are beneath them having to put up with, and i find it very irrating cause i think its very rude that people expect me to have to deal with things and they feel they are so much morally above me that they shouldnt have to deal with it. its really been upsetting me a long time none of u guys are ever getting this done. it doesnt hurt anyone to fax their id and cc info to BCP.ReplyDelete
maybe it shouldnt anger me the way it does, but it makes me feel like u guys all think im scum and trash and beneath being treated with human respect and dignity. it was never about the money. sickcallmgee even tried to get me to violate my acct by wanting to chip dump and of course id never do that, i wouldnt stoop to his level of morality. i dont even lie to the govt to get ssi and almost everyone who isnt a complete asshole on my blog claims i should.
so im sick of everyone acting like they are better than me, when really its me whose got a better sense of whats right and whats wrong. shut ur mouth and quit condeminng me
Does your vagina hurt today Tony?Delete
On BCP I clicked "accept friends request " other than that I don't know If there is something else I should do.
As for condemning you, you make yourself look worse than anyone else could.
My BCP money is fun money. I don't plan on withdrawing. I'll play it till I bust or accidentally win a few thousand. Then maybe I'll submit my docs to withdraw or transfer.
$100 doesn't mean enough to me to take the time when I could be picking up morally sound affectionate hookers who will kiss on the lips while reciting Bible verses in between blow jobs.

Wow, what brought THAT on?
When I first opened a BCP account, I used one of my credit card to deposit $100. I entered a handful of tournaments, never won anything, so the money was gone. I haven't bothered doing whatever identify verification they require for withdrawal because there has been no occasion to do a withdrawal. There has been nothing to withdraw.
When I tried to deposit a second time, months after the first time, either the site's policies or the policies of the banks that issue my credit cards had changed, and I couldn't make a deposit. I had seen you post about being able to use your credit card for deposits, so I emailed you to ask if I could give you cash for a deposit and transfer to me. You said yes, so I gave you the cash next time I saw you.
You not only agreed to this, but posted in your blog that you were flattered that I trusted you. March 18: "also its nice to know people trust me with their money. poker grump gave me $200 to deposit for him on BCP since his bankcard didnt work, and today he found the money on BCP."
But now you say that this exact same transaction is somehow, perversely, evidence that I think you are "beneath" me, that I think you should have to "suffer indignities" that I don't, etc.
This is insane, Tony.
First, it was a simple exchange that I assume took you no more than maybe 3 minutes total to execute, and cost you nothing. (I had told you in advance that of course I would cover any transfer fees you might incur, and I did.) It was approximately the equivalent of asking you to break $100 for 5 twenties--a nearly effortless, cost-free transaction.
Second, whether I sent BCP identity info such that I could make withdrawals and transfers has no bearing on whether I can successfully use my credit cards to deposit. I suspect that the blockage comes from the banks issuing the cards, not from BCP (since your card still works fine).
Third, if you found the request to be such a goddamned insulting, degrading burden, you could have just said no, you'd rather not do it, and that would have been the end of it--no hard feelings, no harassment. When you ask me to do you some favor that I'm not comfortable doing for whatever reason, I just tell you no, sorry, can't/won't do that, and life goes on.
Fourth, if you found the request to be so insulting, why not tell me so in private--the same way the request was made--rather than calling me out in a public forum like this for so horribly degrading you?
How in the hell do you get from making a simple exchange--one that cost you nothing in dollars and almost nothing in effort--to being convinced that this implies all sorts of ugly, nefarious things that I must believe about you?
You need to take an anti-paranoia pill, I think.
my apologies, just looked on BCP when i went to my room to update my blog with todays good news, and i found that yes u did add me. i only thought u didnt because it didnt show up right away that night.ReplyDelete
probably just slow servers.Delete
Though I really don't get on often at all to play.
I find online so boring compared to Live poker. When I play online I really just want to be playing live and I usually don't play for long because of that.
I agree about online. I know a lot of the bloggers really had their heyday back when online was the rage, but I only used it early in my poker "career" to learn and practice. I find it quite boring now, perhaps because no attractive young gals are sitting next to me talking about their vaginas.Delete
Give me a live game any day.
when I lived in PA, in the 2004-2006 era I played online a TON and won a ton of money doing it as well - but the closest card rooms were 45 min and 1:15 away and games were not always running.Delete
However, my main fun was bonus chasing - I jumped sites so often (like everyone else i'm sure). The games were better then though - people didn't have the ability to know your tendencies and play 20+ tables at the same time. So, games were fun, loose and profitable.
Online poker is it's own separate beast now.
Grrouchie! You effing WISH! Omfg what bull shiat!ReplyDelete
The closest grrouchie has been to viewing my breasts is what he sees on my blog . That's it.
Hmmmm so you still have money lefy to lose on bcp....it's getting hot in here ....must remove top...
I find it funny as shit that your reply went to my spam box Josie :)Delete
Maybe even Blogger doesn't believe the lies you feed it.
Don't take the top off too quickly, let me fire up BCP and your webcam site first. I'm willing to pay good money for this (good in my definition of the term!)
Only for you my sweet little red sockDelete
I wonder what Josie would think of Nanci's wall?!Delete
