I haven’t been playing much poker lately, but I did hit my first ever royal flush last night. It came in on the river, playing 2/4 NL, and I checked.
The pot was $20, and my opponent pushed for over $400! I had to double-check the board to make sure I actually had the hand I thought I did, and then called.
And we chopped.
I ended up losing more than I am used to in that game, but less than a buy-in. My bankroll can handle 2/4 NL, I think, but I’m still working on wrapping my head around it.
The Mets are still kicking ass in the NL East. After the win last night, they now have a 7.5 game lead over the second place Phillies, and an 11 game lead over Atlanta. I went to two games last week, against the Dodgers, the first and last game of a three game series. I got to see them win both, though they lost the one in the middle. I need to get to more baseball games, regardless of the teams playing. One of the few problems with Santa Barbara is the distance to the closest major league baseball team. Too damn far.
Most of my free time lately has been spent playing Guitar Hero. After the game last Monday, I played it for the first time at a friend’s place. After one song, I was hooked, and ordered it from his Amazon on his laptop. Tuesday at work, I got impatient, and ordered it from Circuit City for in-store pickup, with plans to return the one I would get from Amazon later in the week. I don’t know if I will, though, or if I’ll just keep the guitar so I have a second one.
A little bit of searching on the web found two hacks for making the guitar wireless. This one looks like a lot of work, and doesn’t mention anything about charging the batteries. I was initially planning to try that, but then found this. Definitely looks like less work, and has the added benefit of being able to charge through the PS2’s USB port. I’ve ordered all the necessary parts, and should hopefully get everything I need to do it by next week.
