Golf Match #1

We played our first golf match of the now Second Annual W**/Van*** Cup. Not much to report as I totally kicked his ass. The final score was 77 to 90. I made putts from everywhere and Bill never got going.

There has been virtually no poker in the last week as we get ready to move into our new home. However, I did get to meet Tom Schneider, the reigning World Series of Poker Player of the Year. Tom was playing in the golf tournament we played in today at Phoenix Country Club and he was in the foursome behind us. He seems like a nice guy and he has a pod cast that I could try to listen to. The problem with his show is that one of his friend's mikes is turned up way too loud and he has the most raskpy, annoying voice I have ever heard on a radio show.

House Closing and Another Wednesday Win

Lots going on.

We close on our new house today. There is master bedroom upstairs and one downstairs. Michele said I can have the one downstairs to make into my “Man Cave”. So I forsee my poker table, a flat screen TV, and possibly a kegerator in the future for that room.

I nearly doubled my poker bankroll in September and lost it all back in October. The main issue was the lack of a Wednesday game which made me want to go to the casino on Wednesdays or on the weekends. All of those trips were big losers.

We finally started up the Wed game again last night and once again I took first place out of 5 for a $64 profit. I feel like I played my best game ever last night. I won numerous pots with bluffs in the beginning and just hit all kinds of cards at the end to take the last two players out, including pocket Aces on the very last hand.

The golf bet with Bill will be starting up again this Sunday. This year it will be 10 rounds straight up for $300. Hopefully I will be adding my name to the locker this year as the winner.
