Poker in Australia

Rory Breaker: If you hold back anything, I'll kill ya. If you bend the truth or I think your bending the truth, I'll kill ya. If you forget anything I'll kill ya. In fact, you're gonna have to work very hard to stay alive, Nick. Now do you understand everything I've said? Because if you don't, I'll kill ya.

To wind up yesterdays increedible events, there is now a "Mrs PokerOnFilm" in waiting. On my way home from work, I resigned to the fact that all the cards were on the table and there was no use bluffing anymore. I bought some very cheap flowers from a supermarket and some very expensive alcohol from the liquor store next door. I listened to the messgae left by the jewllers on my mobile, the same one Serena listened to, and then spent the rest of the night on the phone calling family and friends. We are now looking to submit the story to some of the women's magazines here in Australia to hopefully get some coin to help pay for next year's wedding. Bloody hell, it was a big day yesterday.

On good poker news, my withdrawal from Neteller finally went through, and I will be diving back into the Party waters in no time. In even greater news, I checked up the local casino website today and they proclaim they will have poker tables before the end of the month. Yes, the poker boom is FINALLY hitting our shores. Party Poker is starting to advertise in prime time television, and the second biggest casino in Australia decides to pull thier head out of the sand and make some money of it. Don't know what the quality of the dealers will be, but it should be interesting to see what kind of games they will have. You can bet I will be sitting in for my first casino game before the year is out.

So with yesterday's news, I had no chance to actually play any poker, which was a shame because I really felt lik eluck was on my side...Well, perhaps it was better that I didn't. Thanks for those who read and made comments about a subject that had very little to do with poker. I will let you know if my story makes it to print.

Cheers
