Varmint Cong!

Finally got to play our heads up match last night right before the skill series and the bodog tourny...

The first match was very interesting. Mike is a good player, but he plays that very patient, very boring style of game. Which almost got me. I had a few friends railing, and the one pointed out that out the 130 hands we played, he saw 50. Over the 50 he observed, only 4 hands went to showdown. And he said he saw one uncontested jam from each of us.

The first match brought 3 pivotal hands... The first I had Mike covered about 3-1. I had raised with AQ from the small and he shoved with A2. The 2 fell and we were back to even.

The next hand went in my favor when I shoved a suited 10 9 and Mike called with A 10. Of course the 9 falls and we get back to even again.

I chipped up a little and took a marginal lead when I again raised from the small with JJ. Mike shoved with 99, I insta called and the Jacks held to give me the win.

The second match wasn't really anything to talk about and I think it ended in <10 hands. The end came when I had A9 spades. Mike had raised up early and I called. Blinds were still only 15/30 so the raise was like 60 or 90.

The flop came 9 high. I raised up, he jammed, and I just couldn't put him on anything bigger. I called and he showed 10 9.

The skill game was capped with me losing with KK against 10 J... and AQ clubs losing to KJ clubs... I run good.

I lost the Bodog in 22cnd when I shoved on Skidoo with AQ and he called with his 99. I lost the race and go home to play some cash and $24 sngs and watch Caddy Shack on HBO.

I know every line of that movie but haven't seen it in quite some time. What a treat!

For some strange reason, one of my fav's was :

I don't exactly know what it is about that line?

How come I don't have your pron star name yet? Is it that bad?
