The plural of Moose is "Meese"...

3 comments ● 2011-03-04

Technically i think the plural of Moose is "Moose" but that's pretty boring. I prefer "Meese" or "Moosei" (pronounced Moose I).

It has been 4 months since the mythical BOLORD won the Bodog Major and time does not fly when you are getting bent!

This is not to say my luck is better or worse than anyone elses, but anyone who plays multis on a somewhat regular basis knows how long it can be between drinks of any description...

Live tounaments in Sydney , Adelaide and the Aussie Millions yielded little, including a real memorable 14th in the $1650 bounty at crown, concluding at 4am with Jai Kemp raping me of my chips on the way out! (You would owe me several Beers Jai, but i dont drink Beer, so i expect spirits!). Yeah who needs the 80k for 1st anyways?

Of course if you are Joel "Strongplay" Dodds then the time between drinks is approximately 4 minutes, both in poker and alcohol intake, given his success rate in the last month. (You are no longer entitled to lament running bad I'm afraid). Or it will be reminscent of when I and many others used to grimace when we saw Joe Hachem yelling "one time" or similar not long after after winning the world series...

One time!!{id:141}

This week however i can claim my own "Meese Triple Crown" even though technically it wont be counted on P5's.

The 5r on titan twice for about 2.3k US apiece and the Poker Heaven 55e for 14k US approx.

On Poker Heaven i was playing my very first game on the site under "TrupQQ". I'm sure many of you would be familiar with the 2+2 forum article this screen name is derived from. If you aren't familiar, make sure you get at least a few pages into this thread for some photoshopped genius.


Amazingly TrupQQ was all in QQ v AA midway into the game and hit his Q! And his winning hand was QQ!! In addition he only lost 1 all in for the entire game when 4 handed. Sometimes u just run" Real Fucking good!"

This was followed by qualifying to the Sydney ANZPT last night and all in all it's been an epic week. Unfortunately these runs dont tend to last long,(possibly unless I'm say "Tollgate"," Brendoor"," Rawkz" or "Stev0l"Wink especially since i'm not a pro poker player,(never said i work though!) so my volume and quite possibly skill level is well short of some of the afforementioned online guns for the time being. (Except Stevo, he is pretty much retired already isn't he?!){id:142}

So it's going to be Sydney then Vegas it appears, for my first ever visit to the Nevada Desert. I will essentially just be playing satellites and the Main Event and possibly 1 or 2 bracelets(Just for fun, because its REALLY hard to beat 30% tax on top of rake). However even if i lose every single satellite under the sun i'm goin to play the Main, even if i need 1000 shareholders at $10 a pop !

Coming up online is the Mini FTOPS series from this Monday onwards. Now with Multi entry formats, we can all enter the $75 Main Event 6 times at once! When will it end? Why dont we have 25 entries and 2 repechages for every 25 entries and then we can enter 75 fucking times!{id:143}
