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.
