Random facts and the two dollar heads up spewtard.
by SeabrookNutz | Published May 03, 2012
I have been playing poker regularly since I was 15.
My largest cash was for $4400. I got first in a Seabrook $250.
My longest poker session (bathroom breaks only) was 20 consecutive hours. I was 18 and it was my first time at Turning Stone.
My favorite hand is J9 in dimes. KQ is a close second.
In 2011 my Seabrook buy-in to cash ratio was 4,400:10,600.
My favorite hand that I have ever played was when I bluffed Joe off top two pair with KK.
I made $600 dollars in Vegas.
I once laughed for a good 2 minutes at a note Joe had on a player on Poker Stars. It read: $2 HU Spewtard. I don’t know why I thought it was so funny, it just was. This leads me to a $2 heads up game that I was playing tonight. My other roommate, Joe Dagher, is trying to learn poker. He’s a quick study and a smart guy (a MechE), but he has no experience. He’s prolly played a few hundred hands lifetime. Lately he has somehow convinced me to play him HU for $2. It’s extremely tilting to play against him because he’s slow (dealing and making decisions) and he will only play for $2. I don’t play my A game for 2 dollars. I float every bet he makes and bluff way too often. His game has some pretty major holes in it, but he managed to win a few games and now I owe him $4. I have decided to stop playing him. I need to be ready to go this Saturday, and if I play Dagher anymore it’s going to kill some of my hunger for the game. I’d rather be hungry when playing for $200 than when playing for 200 cents. It’s funny how I go on tilt way more easily for 2 bucks than 200. I can’t remember the last time I was on tilt at Seabrook. Or the last time a player got to me. It just doesn’t happen. I think this is why I prefer Seabrook to Rockingham or Foxwoods. Comfort. I am just so much more comfortable in Seabrook because I have had so much success there. Oh well. It’s Midnight here in Boston and I have my last day of co-op tomorrow. Then it’s time for the Celtics tomorrow night and poker on Saturday.
