Joker poker

It has been about 2 months since I thought about poker? Really? No wonder it seems dusty around these parts.

As I sat at the bar yesterday, enjoying a New Glarus Chocolate Abbey (well worth buying if you can find it), it dawned on my that Vegas is just over a month away. This would normally be the annual post of how I am shaking off the ring rust and playing more online poker to get in shape for the trip.

My how things have changed!

I guess I could look back to see the last time I played some serious poker was but that doesn't matter. I have been playing a little bit online. Free poker on Zynga. I prefer to call it joker poker as there is little rhyme or reason as to how these people play. 2 card bingo! Push them in!

The thought occurred to me that I may not even play poker on this trip. Last year I spent more time throwing dice or playing pai gow that hold em. If I wasn't doing that I was probably shooting the breeze with someone at a bar or the sportsbook.

I may even skip the tournament. I don't know if I want to sit down as deader than dead money. I guess it depends on what happens on Friday night/Saturday morning. Until then it is a wait and see approach. For all I know this crap poker may want me to walk away for good.
