Poker Words - A Poker Blog

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

My wife and I went to this German restaurant called Schnitzel Platz last night with a few of her friends.  This place was as hardcore authentic German as you could imagine. Not that I have ever been to Germany or know what authentic German food is like, but if I had to guess, I would say this is pretty close.  

They had like forty different flavors of schnitzel.  Until last night I was only aware of two.  That’s a lot of schnitzel to choose from.  Sorry I just like saying schnitzel.  I’m cool like that.

When I ordered a beer, I was given the option of a half liter, liter or two liter.  None of this sissy pint crap.  They went straight for liters as their designated unit of measurement.  I opted for half liter, not thinking that I would be able to consume liters worth of tasty beverage in one sitting.  The other guy that was with us went for the two liter.  After he ordered it, and the waiter brought it out, the waiter explained that it’s usually ordered as group, kind of like a pitcher at your regular drinking establishments.  Oh, and it came in a glass/mug/container(?) shaped like a giant boot.  It was a lot of beer.  

And nothing says authentic German restaurant like live German music.  There were two old time German guys there in full gear playing all of your favorite polka’s.  Classics like “Who Stole the Kishka” and “Too Fat Polka (She’s Too Fat For Me)”.  And yes we bought their CD.  And no we will never listen to it after last night.  And yes I still have polka music in my head and I can’t get it out.

Good Times.


I should note that this is my first post written from my new computer, which I finally have up and running.  I have just about everything moved over to the point where I can get rid of my old laptop.  Here’s a question for you.  How much crap from the old laptop should I keep?  Space really isn’t an issue.  I’m going from 40GB to 500GB, but do I really need source code for some project I worked on six years ago?  On the other hand, what if I wrote something that I end up needing in the future?  I‘ll probably end up keeping a whole bunch of crap I don’t need, I just hope I can keep it at least somewhat organized.


Mario Williams?  Really?  I don’t know a lot about college football, so I’m not really qualified to comment on draft picks, but that hasn’t exactly stopped me before.  I was pretty sure that Reggie Bush was as sure of a #1 pick as we had seen in a while, and maybe Leinart and Young had a slim chance.  Shows what I know.


Oh yeah, poker news.  Now that the new machine is up and running there is a good chance I will be playing actual poker again sometime soon.  Crazy, I know.   There is a WPBT event tomorrow night that I should probably play if I have any hopes of claiming the POY award.  Somehow I don’t think playing in only one event is going to cut it.  Of course tomorrow is a seven card stud event, so I don’t exactly like my chances but you never know.
