The Heater

Couple of things...

First, and I will write this 100 times on the board...

"I will NOT miss out on playing Party Poker at night"

Second, after last night's performance, I'm even more perplexed by my shitty luck in the live game!

But, first, some HAMMER news.

I neglected to mention that I did lower the Most Holy and Apostolic HAMMER upon an unsuspecting table the other day. They all ran in fear of the might and power of the HAMMER, running like girly-men for the hills in the face of a mighty bet on the river. Check out the details at Grubby's.

Then, last night, this happened...

Blindsided by the Mighty HAMMER!

pljenkins: LOL
pljenkins: HAMMER!!!

I got no response. Actually, the guy who hit me with the Hammer proceeded to pay me several times that night. If you were to look in the dictionary for Calling Station, it would refer you to this guy. He would play any two cards to the river. If was beautiful.

Played two hours of 50/1 on two tables, and managed to rake in $51 in profit. A HUGE day.. err, night. I WILL make time in the evenings to play Party from here on out. With 30,000+ people on a night, the games are white hot. I imagine once I get back to the 1/2 games, though, I'll be stuck in some damn fool waiting list for an eternity. Seems like of the 30,000 online, 20,000 want to play 1/2.

On a somewhat unrelated note, Melissa and I went to go see The Cooler last night. It was bizarre. It's sort of a Casino meets Pulp Fiction kind of film. A love story rolled into a mob film, overlayed by the scummy underbelly of Las Vegas. Not the kind of film you want to take a first date on. I wasn't very impressed, and I think that, next to Kathy Bates naked in About Schmidt (along with an ass shot of Jack Nicholson), I would rank seeing William H. Macy's nuts right up there on the list of things that should never have been archived to film.

That being said, I think the film was cast beautifully. Who makes a more convincing hard luck loser then Macy, and though I wouldn't have chosen Alec Baldwin as a mobster, he definately pulls it off. I just think that the film suffered some sort of style identity crisis. It couldn't quite figure out whether it wanted to be a Quentin Tarantino style film or a Francis Ford Coppola style flick, and the result was a clumsy at times mixture of both.

And this has not been your Ebert and Roper movie Review. I'm not Ebert, and he's not Roper... And you were never here.
