Poker 09/21/07 Back to the Elks Club
I needed to go into work to catch up on some stuff, but since I was left with the boys this morning I was too frustrated to go right in. I went to a farmer's market instead. I bought some heirloom tomatoes and some potatoes. I came home and made the best turkey sandwich I've ever had with the heirloom tomatoes. I think they called the variety Colorado Sunshine.
After that I went in and did what I absolutely had to at work. Still frustrated I didn't want to do any more so I did what anyone would do and went down to the club to play poker. I played $25 in roulette while I was waiting for the tournament to start and lost. I played in the $60 tournament with one re-buy.
To start with I made a couple hundred chips. Then I started tanking heavily down to a low of about $3500 chips. Then I decided that from now on I always play my best game, and since someday I hope I can play my favorite game full time instead of work I decided today was the day I'd justify my play.
I started rising up, on up to $18,000.00 in chips and ended up taking third place for $225.00 It was pretty profitable because I missed the re-buy opportunity on the break. Also I got a great haddock and chips platter, who would have thought that the place to get fish and chips on Friday was at the local charity poker room? All in all a good night.
