The nut low is still the nuts! Right?!!

Some seriously fun times and some seriously funny shit happened this weekend. I went out to the local casino to play some live poker with Emptyman. It's not the biggest casino so when we showed up in the early afternoon, they only had 3 or 4 tables going. After a short wait they started up a new 1-2NL table that we were both at. It's fairly easy to stay out of each other's way when it's a full ring which it was most of the day.
I had a decent day but had to watch Emptyman struggle as he couldn't lay down his cowboys when the board was 1 card to a straight and saw him make a spectacular laydown with trip jacks to a similar board. The jacks hand was pretty funny because he showed the jack and so the other guy showed his hand and Empty read it wrong and was beating himself up about laying down the best hand when actually he had made the right decision and saved himself $50.
But the stunner of the day would put Emptyman up for the day and leave him with a story to tell his grandchildren some day. The hand played out like this but I'm not sure of the exact amount bet on every card.
Emptyman is dealt 66 and raises preflop to around $20. I believe there was only 1 caller. Flop comes two low cards and 1 over, like 34J or something. Guy checks to him and Empty bets out close to the pot size of $40. Call from the new resident genius. Turn is another low card, a 7 or an 8, I can't remember. Genius checks and Empty goes all in for his remaining $140. INSTA-CALL FROM THE MASTER POKER GENIUS. Empty turns up his pocket 6's and is sure he is beat seeing how quickly he called. What does this guy turn up? Seriously!!! 2-5 off fucking suit!!!! Open ended with the nut low!!! Wow. Well the river was another 3 or something harmless and after the chips were counted it turns out they originally had the exact same amount of chips. ChaChing!
The table was stunned. The dealer was stunned. When the dealer announced the guys hand as 5 high we couldn't help but laugh. The only thing we can think is that he misread his hand and he thought he already had the straight. This guy was pretty bad and only had those chips because he had gotten lucky on a few funny calls earlier. Check out the Emptyman's blog for the real details.

My day was alright. I finished up about $100 largely due to a couple big calls I made to this guy who thought he could bluff anyone off any pot. I made a number of good reads that day. Some may say it's cause I can't lay down a pair but trust me, I layed down a number of large hands that day. Overall I felt good about my game and am looking forward to going back soon.

Tonight is my regular game with Numbono. This tourney is my favorite because I have now played it 4 times and it's the softest game in town. I won it once, placed 4th twice and bubbled in 7th the other time. 26 guys and only 4 of them know anything about poker at all. It's really not that tough to just fold your way to the final table.

So no Live BDR broadcast tonight during the MATH but you can still groove to the music.

The Stang!!!

Here she is!! I only have these few pictures. I'll take more when it stops raining.

It's so great to be driving it again. Check out Mustang Forums to see how everything progressed.
***Careful! It's a fairly long read.

On the poker front, I will finally have more time to play. Tonight is the local game Numbono got me invited to. I won it last week, was the bubble boy the time before, and finished 4th the first time I played in it. It has to be one of the softest games around.

I won't be DJ'ing tonight during the MATH but feel free to pick out some music and tune in to BuddyDank Radio. I will be live this week for the Mook!

I have been challenged on my knowledge of Canada. I was hoping a fake accent was good enough but Schaubs, Astin and Fuel seem to think I should know a little something more about their lovely country.
Astin wrote "I say that for Buddy to get in with the hosers, he has to be able to have a convincing conversation about hockey and name our national sport. (hint: NOT hockey).

Also, 4 Prime Ministers and 1 Governor General.

He also must talk about the worst poutine he's ever had, debate which coast has the best salmon, and show us a picture of him in a touque.

There will also be a surprise situation at the end of the test."

Wow! OK, so I'm not up on my Canadian history and don't know much about it in general but I'm going to give it a shot.

he has to be able to have a convincing conversation about hockey
I'll work on the conversation about hockey when I actually get face to face with one of these canucks.

name our national sport. (hint: NOT hockey).
I'd have to guess.......Hockey! Ohh
Is it Curling?

4 Prime Ministers and 1 Governor General.
This is a tough one. I can barely name anyone in the US government.
Prime Ministers
1. Doug McKenzie
2. Bob McKenzie
3. Terrence but not Phillip
4. Frenchy McFrenchguy

Governor General
1. Wayne Gretzky

He also must talk about the worst poutine he's ever had
It was the summer of 94'. My girlfriend had just left me for another man and I was lonely and hurt. The following weekend some friends and I went out to our local pub for a few brews. We all immediately noticed the new waitress as we sat down and started calling dibs on that sweet juicy goodness that she was.
This was a regular routine for us. When we saw a hot chick that none of us has a chance at, we all like to fight over the chance to even talk to such a wonder of gods creations. But most, if not all of my friends back then(and now) were pretty geeky and shy around girls. So we never really could back up all of out shit talk.
But something that evening was different for me. Maybe it was the fact that my girlfriend left me. And maybe it was the beers I'd had before we even got to the bar, And yet still maybe it was destiny! Because I made my move on her like a lion going after some kind of animal that lion's eat. I was slick, witty, charming, and she was eating it up and I couldn't believe it.
Since she was working, she gave me her number and said she would be off work around 2:00 am. We had arrived pretty early in the evening so when we left around 11:00pm I had to get ready. And by ready, I mean clean the house, my room, hide everything porn and drug related and even did a load of laundry real quick so I'd have clean sheets. Looking back I'm not even sure why I was so sure I was going to score that night but even my friends knew because they were helping me clean.
At 1am I started to get a bit nervous so I kicked my friends out and said I'd call them later. I sit down and try to relax by watching some TV but I can't sit still. Did I clean the bathroom good enough? The other rooms? Are 6 month old condoms still good? Should I play music? What kind of music? Oh crap! I don't have any way to play music! Pretty much just freaking out.
2am arrives! Now mind you, this was long before I had a cell phone and so I had to think about waiting for her to get home so I could call. How long should I wait? Should I really call this late? What if she lives with her parents? All that crap is running through my head! But at 2:20am I finally make the call!!!!!
*ring ring
Whew! She answered. I recognized her voice so I just went into my cool guy act. After being thoroughly wooed by me, she said I could come pick her up. Woo to the Hoo!!!
My blood was pumping, my heart was racing and my 91 Hyundai was in high gear. It turns out she lived on the same side of town so it was just a few minutes away. Got to her house and she was waiting outside. Good sign? I thought so.
On the car ride back to my place we chatted about work and school. She was a few years younger but we were both college students going to different Universities.
When we got to the house, I gave her a quick tour and we sat down on the couch. Right about this time there is a long uncomfortable silence. I start to mumble about any random thing when all of the sudden she plants one on me! I never was very good at making the first move.
I'll skip some of the lurid details but the action soon moved to my bedroom. The lights are off, the clothes are off and things are going so well..................or so I thought.
I didn't hear a knock at the front door but I did hear the one on my bedroom door. I turn around to see my ex opening the door and flip on the lights. The look on her face screams devastation. No one speaks. Just silence.
After the shock starts to wear off I notice she is holding something. It was a big, huge, dangerously large...
*end of story

Eat that beotch! I knew that one and no I did not cheat. I've been to Canada and I'm fairly sure that is the only thing I learned about Canadian culture. How sad am I?

debate which coast has the best salmon
Seriously? Uhmmmmm... The west coast does because Alaska is on that side and anything associated with the US is good. Ok I have no clue on this one and I soooo don't care.

show us a picture of him in a touque.
I don't have a picture of me in one but I do know what it is. A hat! HA!

While I was writing this, Schaubs decided it would be a good idea to give me more questions for the test. I will answer those later when I have more time. I need to get some work done.
