Maybe the curse is over...

I was playing at Bodog last night and enjoying the horrible pokerites handing me their chips like they were covered with a rare disease, and I had Q-Q.
We all know how I feel about that hand.
But I raised because I refuse to let the 783 times I'd lost with it in a row to make me play incorrectly, and a shortie pushes all in for about a quarter of my stack.
I put him on A-K and call.
So I'm already shaking my head about losing this race when the flop comes.
So with this hand and the last hand I just posted about, I've won two big hands in a row with Queens.

"Then the spell starts to break
The albatross falls from his neck
Sinks down like lead into the sea
Then down in falls comes the rain."

See you at Bodog at 7:05 p.m. for the Blogger tourney. Password is Bodogblogger. Come for lots of added goodies and a possible Bodog league, which would rock like Queen (not queens).

Sweet, great way to see them hold up. Aaaa, I was looking forward to the Bodonkey tonight, until I stayed too late final tabling a bar game last night, and committed to a poker-free night with the missus tonight, gg me.

I *will* see you there eventually, but I'd be a real donkey to promise when, anymore. TID tonight!

BTW, not sure if I posted this before or not, but there's a new forum dedicated to Colorado players that you may find worthwhile. Not a lot of users yet, but it is what it is: http://pokerincolorado.forumotion.com/
