Last night I played at Jokers Casino in the $30 tournament. Where did all the people come from? On Monday we had about 30 people show up and then last night we had 36 show up to play. It was nice to see the group grow from the last few months were we barely got two tables.
One of the things I hate to see is the celebration at the table when someone wins a hand. We had a young person at the table that played his pocket A's well and pulled in a nice pot. I will give him that much. What he did next was the problem. He must have clapped for about 15 to 20 seconds in your face type clap. Everyone just looked at him and just stared. No one said anything. You could tell people were not happy with this show of excitement. Hopefully someone will say something later to him on the side.
I went out in 21st last night. I was trying to hang in with nothing. I did win some pots that allowed me to get to the 300-600 level but when I got down to 4BB I knew it was find the best cards and go ahead and shove. I got A10 and went in. I was called by one person and he ended up getting an 8 on the flop to get a pair and take me out. At least he wasn't clapping.
My nose is finally rebelling with all the dust in the house from the remodel. They put the texture on the walls yesterday and I am really feeling it today. I thought I was coming down with a cold but now it has to be all the dust. Keeping the doors shut and windows open I hope will help. Nick will be here this next week and he will be able to help with the painting in the 3 rooms. It will be nice to have all of this completed. Carpet is next week and then the bathroom will be done as well. I don't want to see the cost of this project. I think it is more than what we expected.
Took Parents out to eat yesterday to Olive Garden. I really like that place and we had Salad and Soup with the breadsticks and sauce. What a meal. Parents went away full and that was my intent.
Hope to have a good weekend and then start work on Monday.
