I ended up playing quite a bit of poker last night. I balanced some TD with HE to basically come up a couple dollars up.

Meanwhile, I took advantage of a token frenzy tournament that Hoy mentioned yesterday. Getting the token wasn't as tough as remembering it was a Turbo. I chipped up early and was willing to sit on the sideline. But I got greedy with pocket 9s and suddenly found myself on the outside looking in. Sure there were plenty of players left and I was never in dire straits but it is easier to be in the middle of the pack and only play monsters that scrambling trying to survive the bubble.

Plus with so many players not understanding the concept of a satellite, having that cushion is needed. Cannot tell you how many times I saw a big stack getting involved with A rag or K 9 off and bullying people around. For the most part, if I have a stack in the sat, I am sitting back, letting others do all the banging. Until I have a monster or I know of weak players that I can knock out.

So with 36 players getting tokens, I promptly went out in 36th place. At the same time, I went on a nice TD run erasing the hole I was in for a nice profit.

If only I had done better in CC's tourney. We started with basically 6 at a table. Bayne had to bludgeon me with his quad kings to more than cripple me. Well played. I had you tagged for A K and a set. Man, was I off thinking my rivered straight was good.

I did notice a trend when I play triple draw. After jumping up to a nice win, I tend to give it all back and then some. I end up playing looser than I normally would. Toss in one card draws that just don't get there or some clown pulling 4, 3 and 2 to make a 7 and I see all profit gone and me fighting to get back to where I started. I think that is one goal for the weekend. To not play so many hands and try to draw out because I see other people hit.

Best thing is I am still loving the game.

This past weekend we learned even Barry Greenstein can river a Broadway Straight and think he's got the best hand on a paired board.

Any donkey can play KK pre-flop and quad Kings post flop

yOUTUBE. "You pay something for everything you do." ie "We intend on continuing the theater up there to

ensure even frewer disfavoreds make it."
I think this, search engines and such are all for distraction purposes. Having endured such skewed

searches I know personally the computer decides what hits I am allowed and which are prevented.
They say some trolls in chat rooms are the computer. Yes I suspect they have some ringers, likely some

difsavoreds segmentted thinking they are earning, but ALL THIS INTERNET-BASED COMPUTER SHIT CAN ALL BE

Everyone is gone. 2000 was a big deal. Yahoo, Google are all filled with brain-less clones, doing the

bidding of the gods. Unlike Hollywood their roles as monsters will wait until the next level, Planet

Corporate, aka Purgatory.

What perplexes me is why the gods would remain so soft on pure tools, allowing for open doors for them

to achieve a brain, achieving legitimacy? it seems as if clones without brains are the ultimate in

disposability, anything else defeats the purpose.
They're not human. They're nothign. If AI stopped thinking through them they'd fall in a heap of


Things like free MP3 dwonloads hurt people because you are stealing. Search engines, youtube is for

distraciton purposes, the god's attempt to consume peopel's attention to ensure they don't find the path

and ascend.
Poker/gambling web sites are all controlled by the computer. Other players in the room can be the

computer, role playing virtually, stealing the disfavored's money in real time. Other times the

players are disfavored, granting them good cards so fat bastard never has to get a job, ensuring he has

no chance in this life and has to be reincarnated for he never achieves decency.
But they CAN and DO use the computer to do ALL of this. The challenge is to see how many disfavoreds

can disceive and use to segment into preying upon each other.

Before you abandon the web for Las Vegas understand they have the power to shuffle a deck of cards in

the desired order as the dealer holds it in her hands.

Gambling is degenerate. As time has prgressed the gods have hurt people by making society declare it an acceptable evil, and the same is true for casual sex, pornography:::::::
Life has deteriorated hard in the last 40 years, for they are paving the way for The End.
