Long Time No See...

It's been awhile since I've posted, but I've been away for the past 4 days. I left for Phoenix on Friday and was able to get into town in time for the 7pm NLHE tourney at Fort McDowell.

Buy in is $20, with a $10 optional dealer token and $10 rebuys for the first hour along with a $30 addon after the first hour. I didn't have to rebuy at all, and the addon is a great value at 3K chips, you start with 1500, so I did that. There were 138 entrants and I ended up making the final table, woo hoo! I ended up busting out when it was my BB and UTG moved all in. I looked down to AJos and decided to call. He had me outchipped and I got no help, so I ended up in 4th although I was ecstatic that I made it that far.

On Saturday I spent some time at the Women's Expo being held in downtown Phoenix after taking some time out to take my final test from www.trafficschoolonline.com due to a speeding ticket I received a few months ago. I then headed back to Fort McDowell for the nightly tournament. This time I ended up in 7th place and this was after having to rebuy twice in the first hour..I felt very proud especially since there was a dealer who looked right at me and said there would be no way in hell I would make the final table. I looked for him when it was down to 8, but I couldn't find him.

Spent Sunday at the Women's Expo again and then spent some time with my mom and my grandparents. I stayed the night again on Sunday and got home on Monday around 1 pm. I ended up taking a nap in the afternoon, and then went to bed early to watch the Miss. USA pageant with my daughter on TV and that's all she wrote for Monday.

Today I was able to catch up on some work, emails and phone calls and then I actually went on my 2. 5 mile walk that I had started neglecting. I really, really need to walk everyday. I know I will feel so much better if I just stay on a regular exercise schedule.

I will be playing the night away on PS, so will report on that later tonight or tomorrow.

Where the hell does the dealer get off with saying something like that?

I think dealers need to go back to rule 1 of dealing: Shut up and deal.

I am a strong dealer supporter, I am always the one defending them, not allowing abuse, etc. But sometimes, you run into one or two that cross the line and then I agree with you that they should shut up and deal. All others are cool though and I love interacting with them.

Yeah, I have no problem with a little small talk, but telling a player that they have no chance to make the final table???? Do they not want the fish to come back????
