Poker Words - A Poker Blog

Mostly a recount of my poker exploits along with a bunch of random other stuff just for fun.

I haven’t been playing a lot of poker lately, and that is likely to continue for the near future. This weekend my wife and I are taking a long weekend and going antiquing. Who knows maybe we’ll hit up the Home Depot and Bed Bath and Beyond but, I just don’t know if there will be enough time.

While antiquing is certainly not on the list of “top ten things I would like to spend my weekend doing,” I am taking Friday off, and it sure as hell beats working. As long as I can get her to agree to watch another basketball game this weekend, everything should be fine.

There is another blogger tournament on PokerStars on Wednesday (all are invited, details here) but that will probably be all the poker I get in this week. I’ve been sort of poker deprived lately, but that’s not too big a deal. While I certainly enjoy playing, I can live without it for a while. (I can quit anytime. No really, I can, I just don’t want to). Not playing all that often does make it hard to come up topics to write about.

On the plus side, as far as my poker playing is concerned, for the first time in a long time, there has been talk of an office game. I give it maybe a 50% chance of happening, but it has been brought up as a possibility on more than one occasion for next week or the week after. We had better get it in before the weather gets too nice, because I think that contributed significantly to the demise of our office game last summer.

The final monthly tournament in Chicago is also tentatively scheduled for early April. Aaron, our host has finally joined the rest of us, and is getting married and moving out to the suburbs, so, this is his last time hosting in the City. The good news is, his new house has a room/basement(?) that will be perfect for future poker playing shenanigans.

Depending on how I do in the WPBT tournament on I may have a post later this week, otherwise, probably not until after the Illini win the national championship on Monday. I’m such a slacker.
