My apologies for the lack of posting but there hasn't been much time to post.......or much to post about for that matter.

I just returned from taking the family on a fun filled mini-vacation to the Wisconsin Dells. The resort/hotel we stayed at was fantastic yet again as we are return customers. The indoor water park is a blast for the kids and adults. All in all.....a GREAT time was had by all. I am not as young as I used to be either and all those trips up the stairs and down the waterslides took a toll on this body.

On the poker front.....not much news. Played several online tourney's. Most recently tonights 19K on Full Tilt. It was my last token and I'll be needing to build a little more bankroll before going after more tokens and playing more tourney's. I played well. At the last hand before break I was 8th in chips overall and the tourney chipleader was at my table with about 4K more than me. I was dealt KK and raised it up 4X the big blind. Chipleader was my only caller and I told myself not to tangle with him and get cute. The flop came K 6 2 with two hearts and I bet pot hoping to take it down right there and scare off the flush draw. He called. Warning bells went off in my head. The turn was a 2 giving me King's full and I was loving it. I checked and he bet 1,000 into the 8,000 pot. I called hoping the river was a heart. The river was the ten of hearts. I bet T2500 and he came over the top all in. I called and he flipped over the stone cold nuts........pocket dueces for Quads beetches. I was out.

Anyone out there not give him all their chips on this hand because I didn't see it coming. I thought he was on the flush draw even with my pot sized bet on the flop or pocket sixes for trip sixes.....I guess if I could put him on 6's I could put him on dueces but can you ever put anyone on having quads?

Anyway....I feel my tournament game is getting stronger even though I haven't played as much lately. This time of year I start spending more time prepping for my fantasy baseball draft....can't WAIT!!!!!!

I do have a couple home tournies lined up.........hopefully will get some ring games online in over the next week and plan to play at Empress one day next week along with Majestic Star II next Friday night. This coming weekend however the wife is out of town and it's just me and the 3 little Baz's.......Can't Wait!

Still Surviving

I've been gone for what feels like forever......haven't played much poker lately online or live. It's been crazy at the house with the kids all being sick one after two of my kids birthdays and all that goes into that it hasn't left much first.

I'm hoping to get to Trump......errrr Majestic Star 2 Friday night with my brother.....we shall see if I can escape. My brother-in-law and in-laws might be in town already and I'm not too sure how that would go over.

I've been keeping up with all my blog reading.......ok...ok.....most of my blog reading.

Booked our Vegas trip for June......Can't Wait!!!!

Just a quick hit and run tonight.......

Til next time.
