Sign up early

It's a new year! Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!

A few hours into the New Year and I get an IM from my pal TrumpJosh. He blew away his blog again, so don't bother trying to click his link. This time I think it might be for good. But he will always be a special blogger to me. Some of you may remember that it was because I wanted to leave a comment on his blog that I started my blog. He restricted comments to bloggers. And I was not gonna let that get in my way of leaving a remark. Waffles was my inspiration to actually publish content and share this thing with the world. I figured if he could do it. So could I. haha!

Okay, so back to my story. Josh IM's me. He says he could put some money online for the sole purpose of playing me HU. Now unlike many of you, he pwn's me at HU. Yeah, I really hate to admit it, but it's true. So for Josh, starting his new year playing HU with me is an automatic ego boost for him. He is sure to be happy.

Not being one to turn down a HU opportunity even against my ultimate rival, I agree. I end up being getting in a match with someone else first because Josh screwed up! The donk gets lucky on me after I set a trap with my flopped straight. Runner runner for him and he hits a flush!

Josh beats me the first match. I win the second. And he wins the final. Hearing his laugh was well worth the sacrifice. Call me silly. But if by losing I bring sheer delight to a pal, then I am pleased too. That is why playing with voice is the only way.

And then to make myself to feel even better, I figure I must play the one person that I'm sure to beat. ...hehe...Flux (aka DP)...He owed me a match. And it was good to know...I still pwn him. Weeeeeeeeeeee.....That felt good. Especially since I smack talked the entire session. Starting with..."Are you sure you can handle this"..."Will you be okay WHEN you lose"...etc.

And then for the match I've been waiting for. I'm kinda glad it didn't start until the new year. I had my first match with KGB this morning. Our challenge will consist of the following:

2 Seven Card Stud
2 Omaha
2 Omaha 8/OB
2 Razz

We will tackle these in reverse order.

I agreed to wake up at a ridiculously early hour just to start our challenge today. It was worth it.

The HORSE match was a good one. We made it through all the games and were on our second cycle when it finished. I was pleased just to survive the stud games which I loath. In the end, he was the victor. If he chooses, I'm sure you will get better details from him. I remember the experience and bottomline results.

But better than the match. I got to know a really smart and interesting person who enjoys a challenge just as much as myself.

So if you are game, get signed up for some HU fun with the Poison while the list is short. The 2007 HU chart has officially opened!

I was not mentioned as someone who pwns you HU? Geesh, thanks for the gratitude.

Not much use mentioning flux as easy to beat...that's a given.

Best of luck in 2007.
