Eli: Dude, don't mess this up.
Matthew: Mess what up?
Eli: Matt, she's a porn star! Okay? Take her to a motel room and bang her like a beast!
Matthew: Eli, I like this girl.
Eli: And you can still like her with your penis inside her. Matthew, I tell you that you're going to regret this. What would JFK do? You know he'd tap that ass.”The Girl Next Door”
Ok, so Howard Lederer isn’t really my uncle, but he is a splitting image of one of my uncles. I sent a picture of Howard to my uncle to see what he thought, and because I know he doesn’t play poker I explained who he was and let him know that Howard Lederer was a millionaire a few times over thanks to poker. My uncle responded with disgust – saying first he learns that he was born on the same day as Michael Jordan, so he missed on his chance at being rich and black and now he finds out his look alike is making millions. Bit unlucky really.
Saw War of the Worlds last night – has some pretty awesome moments in it. You definitely need to see this movie at the cinema; DVD just won’t do it justice.
And on to one more bad beat – although not directly based on poker, as I did not play a single hand last night. I was kindly informed just last night about the full extent of our financial situation leading up to the wedding. As an added bonus, our lease runs out just before the wedding, meaning we will be moving the week leading up to the wedding – naturally, with that comes assorted costs and pains which are synonymous with the moving experience. Basically to cover the wedding, honeymoon and moving we need about $10K more than we got. Talk about getting kicked in the junk.
What can you do? Saying “I told you so” ten thousand times would do little to make me feel better, and I won’t be rewarded with $1 each time I do it. I hardly think I can get my poker bankroll from $600 to $10K in that time with my skills at the limits I am comfortable at. Maybe I need to step outside of that comfort zone? Maybe I just need a really good MTT win – ha, don’t we all? I have a few other irons in the fire so to speak, and maybe they just need a good kick a long.
That news put me in such a down mood last night, it was wise not to hit the tables straight away. At least I have learned something.
