Suck on it, creationists and economists alike.


I might have had a chance to make it up a few more levels, maybe even get $0.50, but ih... it's a quarter. I had like $900 left when the top player was at $40,000 so I just went all-in with pocket 9s, once I was sure I was in the money.

With 8 more tournaments left between now and Sunday, I'm hoping to work my way up to at least fiddy cent. Otherwise I basically have to go to the $0.01/$0.02 tables and go all-in.

Here is the lucky hand that gave me enough cash to hang in there (I made a video if anyone cares to see, I'll just post the text here for now):

I can see the attraction.  I never want to start going down that avenue of pleasure.

Aww now you done gone turn my celebration into something evil.

It;s not that's it's evil (great pic incidentally) it's just that once I start I know I'll be hooked.  Same reason I don't touch WoW.

But did you pay for the internet that you used to access it?!

No, I was at university using their wireless, and now I'm at home for the next week freeloading off my parent's internet.... SCORE! Anyway, even if internet is included in what I'm charged for my room, it's still a fixed cost. I can stay online 24/7. Maybe in  Australia you still pay by the minute or MB Nyaa. So really irrelivant anyway. It would be more correct to tell me that I'd be better off getting a minimum wage job.

Update: Got screwed out of tonight's tournament once again.

4-of-a-kind is really one hand you're powerless to do anything about. Well, unless you want to get really paranoid.

I just finished another tournament in 18th place out of 2260...... another $1.25 for me. Not really worth the extra 3 or 4 hours I put into it.

But did you have to pay for university?! Nyaa

We have the internet in Australia?!
