Poker

So, with the lack of quality programming on TV these days, Mama and I have been spending quite a bit of time …out on the Bering Sea…with…The Deadliest Catch. Now that is some quality “filler TV!”

Anyway, we watched the 20 hours that we had recorded and had nothing to watch last night. As I was scrolling around, I came across the World Poker Tour. I love poker and Mama knows and appreciates that. I left it on and said that something was on Bravo in about 15 minutes. After the first 5 minutes of…”what just happened? Who’s winning? Why did he win? And They really win that much?” Mama looked over at me and said, “Holy crap…this is intense! I can hardly breathe.” I burst out in laughter, nodding, as I showed her the palms of my sweaty, balled up hands. Long story short, we watched the remaining 3 hours of the tournament…during which I was told to shut up so that she could hear and was instructed to rewind several times … “Just do it! I missed what just happened.”

So, this morning I decided to register and play in my first online Hold Em tournament. I have to say that I am quite proud of myself. Out of the 1,181 people in the tournament….I came in 11th. Yeah for me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Never played on line... Once, last year at the Strat in Vegas, I got into one of those $60, 25-30 people Texas Hold 'em tourneys... I took first, and won about $740! It was fun, but I was a little nervous, as it was my first poker tournament...

Congratulations on your sweet victory, now be sure to claim that on your taxes since you just told the IRS ... they have computer programs to sniff out information like this. Now go count that money before it is all gone.

Oh, here's one more thing Wind Wizzer, MaMa has scammed you again. She's been playing strip poker with me for years.

hush carrie, I thought we agreed not to talk about the strip poker.
I was not as bad as Chris describes it, I just really wanted the young guy to beat the mattress man.
