as i mentioned in the 2016 thread, i apparently have a diamond celebration dinner to burn by january 31 and i'm going to try and have it this saturday night january 7th at horseshoe baltimore.

please pm me if you're interested in coming.

in the past we've gone to binion's and guy fieri's for good food and gambling conversation about various topics including rebates, the tonkowa indians, rebates, easygoer 89's real home track, and rebates!!

better start to 2017.....

after a season opening victory thursday at horseshoe baltimore i returned to the charm city tonight for our paceadvantage diamond dinner!!

i jumped out to a good start going 3-0 with QQ but the 4th time wasn't a charm as the ladies ran into BOTH AA and KK in the same hand. an ace on the flop made it easy to get away though and when i got AA in the very next hand another ace on the flop made it easy for me to win the pot.

wrapped up the night with some great food and racing talk with forum members ronsmac and track collector down at binion's.

awesome red velvet cake for desert!!

game +137 (3/6 lim)
year +329 (2-0)
promo 0 (25)

Ditto this! Special PA racing friendships which started around 7 years ago.

Too bad some others didn't take advantage of proximity's generous offer. You never know when new friendships will develop.

My poker results were not as good as those of proximity, losing $118 over the multi-hour session of 1/3 NL. Then Ron tried to cheer me up by reminding me that Timonium is "only" about 7 1/2 months away.

Because I live a significant distance away, the horseshoe gave me a $10 promotional offer, which I was fortunate enough to convert to 10 real dollars with a single play at the blackjack table.

Excellent start for 2017.

Hopefully just scratching the surface for what will turn out to be a very profitable year with your poker activities.

you made a move on 'cuse? you sun of a beach!!

after breaking out of the 2017 gate faster than a juice horse with eight quirin speed points i was last seen partying into the late hours of the night with fellow paceadvantage members ronsmac and track collector.

unfortunately it didn't take very long to return to poker reality as i dropped a pair of games on thursday and a marathon session friday at horseshoe baltimore casino.

it's the same old depressing stuff i've been reporting here for three years.

in one (3/6 limit) hand i raise a straddle to $9 with AK. 52 off suit calls three cold, hits a five and stays the whole way.

in another i limp behind a couple limpers with K8 of spades and raise a flop of K Qs 2s.

Q3 (no spades) calls the raise and turns a queen.

no help on the river.

just how brazen can these villains get?

one guy called one of my bets...... WITH NO CARDS!!!

technically i went 0-3-1 on the week as before friday's game i sat down for two free no-limit hands against the legendary cuserounder!!

facing the cuse i was more nervous that a career criminal in a police lineup and my fingers trembled uncontrollably as i pushed those rags towards the muck.

it would take a REAL paceadvantage hero to go against the cuse and fortunately we only had to wait about eleven hours and fifteen minutes for this to happen as our former rookie and poster of the year charm city whizz (guy's like the ezekiel elliott of paceadvantage) set up shop across from the legend in a 1-3 no limit hold em contest.

eventually, after a long back and forth struggle, we come to the big hand....

cuse: ?? ($15 pre flop)
whizz: KJ (calls small blind)

flop: A87 (cuse bets $50. whizz calls)

turn: 9 (whizz bets 80. cuse calls)


river: 3

whizz bets $110.

cuse goes in the tank and three agonizing minutes later his cards go in the muck to complete one of the greatest (non emd) victories in paceadvantage history!!

cuse: "did you have it?"

whizz: "i don't remember cuse."

and whizz got up and walked to the cage. he sat with the best. and he won.

(actually i think he did show)

thank you for reading.

cuse screams bloody murder at hsb.....

cuserounder approaching 300 hours for january and claims there was a murder in the horseshoe elevator.

http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/sh...postcount=4841

idk if curtisonthebay hijacked his account or something but it turns out nobody actually died. it was merely hand and foot shots. it was probably charm city whizz and track collector arguing about emd and chris kay!!

meanwhile i was up at penn national suffering my sixth limit loss in my last seven games.

i ended up making the money back in no limit but not before value owning myself at what turned out to be a very passive table.

with A8 four or five of us see a flop of AKQ rainbow.

i bet small and one villain calls.

turn: 6

i bet a little bigger and villain calls.

river:6

this has to be a chop. i bet 15. villain calls. how do i lose?

he tables AQ.

http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/17.../index197.html

from what i personally witnessed he almost always seemed to be ahead in 1-3. for 2-5 i'm just not used to the stacks so i can't say.

played him once at 1-3 and he won like $11 before moving to 2-5. i told the dealer we could all exhale now.

one hand i raised 77 first in and he folded behind me. that was really my only experience "against" him.
