Some random poker tidbits this evening...

I ordered a new poker table for the home games that Randy and I host. Yeah, it looks pimp. I went by the local Sports Authority shop to check it out, then ordered it online when the box looked too damn big to fit in the back seat of my convertible. For what I saved in sales tax, the remaining $30 or so for shipping is well worth it for door to door service, I think. I will welcome the arrival of the FedEx (wo)man tomorrow with our new toy.

I also got my F*cking River t-shirt from CafePress today - just in time to wear to Scott's mini Diamond game tomorrow night. This thing just cracks me the hell up. Funny shit. I found a shirt on eBay that I thought was just hysterical - haven't ordered it yet though. Trying to be frugal. (I'm serious!) You can all stop laughing your asses off now.

I've been data mining Full Tilt like the number crunching whore that I am. Have I mentioned how happy I am to be able to use Poker Tracker with Full Tilt? FINALLY! Must... crunch... numbers.... ... must... analyze... statistics....

I was totally tempted to head to Trump after work tonight. You see, I work about 20 miles from Trump, whereas I live about 40 miles from it. Work is half way between home and poker. How convenient! I resisted, though I was quite certain that with the TeleNav GPS on my Blackberry phone, I could find it myself. (Randy drove yesterday, as he knows where all the casinos are). That GPS stuff kicks much ass, by the way. "Prepare to turn left in 1 mile!" Thanks, Robotic Lady Voice!

That's all my news. Randy is gone for the night, helping his parents move, so I think I'm going to hit up the online poker machine. I could do something productive, but after having to go to work today (ARGGG!), I'm in no mood for any more productivity. Let's see if my fish tagging on FTP has done any good....

    I'm glad Poker Tracker is supporting Full Tilt. They have the update ready now? I have to go download that.

    That new table looks pretty good. I'm concerned about the folding in the middle, please let us know if that affects the cards. I built my own table and am interested in buying a second one.

    How'd you do at poker last night?

    I'll let ya know how the table crease works out. I've wanted to build my own, but they're just so cheap now. Poker is tonight :)

    I have played on a table very similar to that one. The crease doesn't affect card flow much, unless you've been using the same deck of Bee 92s for six months and the cards are severely Pringled. What does get difficult, though, is for folks on the ends to fling cards, even flat ones, to the opposite ends of the table. I usually end up standing to do it. A solution would be to have the center people deal alternating downs, like 20 minutes per, and rotate the shuffle along with a button. If the dealers-elect bitch, bribe them with alcohol. :)

    Nice looking table. If I ever get my own place I'm definitely getting one. Of course having poker playing friends nearby would be useful....I'll have to work on that one. ;)

    Good to hear you made it out to Trump finally....you were not in my presence but can be if you head out again Friday night....I'm surprised you missed your name...every time I've been there they announce the names in the room and over the microphone which I believe goes throughout the casino. Enjoy the poker table.....hopefully we'll meet up at Trump soon.
