Am I to be bathed, or Drowned?

I spent the day at the Borgata yesterday figuring out the schedule for the Summer Open. It will be a very cool gig and people should be playing, or at least following the action. Which you will be able to do here.

It was a long exhausting day, and I didn't play one hand. When we finally got everything sorted out, I headed home just in time to play the noskillz event.

I wasn't to high on the idea of playing, but since we are in the last week of qualifying, and participation has been down a bit, I figured I would give it my support.

I chipped up rather nicely, hitting flops and having my hands hold up. I had a few suckouts against me and called off one too many bets with two pair or less on coordinated boards, but that was just to keep some honest.

I hit a big double up to about 7k in chips with around 30 left and got into the top 5 of chip leaders.

Then I woke up.

That's right. I woke up. Approximately around 6am. And I had no idea where I was. I was still sitting up on the couch hand on the touch pad, as if I had played in my sleep. The laptop had shutoff from the battery running down.

When I logged on, I saw that I finished in 12th. There was some IM's as well...

pokerenthusiast: LOL YOU FELL ASLEEP!

kat: Hit me up when you're back

Miller: WAKE UP ASSHOLE

I didn't feel particularly tired when I got home. With the exception of falling asleep a few times on the way home (which is a common occurrence), I felt pretty good.

Had some conversations on the phone, helped a neighbor put in a water line for his new fridge, and put the kids to bed. Then BOOOOOOOOOOOOOM... X's for eyes. I wonder if the wife slipped a mickey in my evening scotch.

Now, normally, this isn't a big deal. But I was running good, and felt somewhere along the line that the standard 2 and 3 outers might be able to be avoided this time around.

That leaves the Mookie tonight, and the brit and big game on sun. I think I'll be able to make the sun games and I'll def play the Mookie tonight.

Hope to see you all there!
