Yes, I was part of last weekend’s festivities. Mookie put on a heck of event and I was happy to be part of it. It started Friday night at Iron Cactus where I got to watch the Red Sox beat the Yankees. Always a good thing. The dinner was great too 🙂 I had not met April before and had not seen Don or Weak since Rocco, Mookie, and I went to Vegas awhile back.
Everyone bailed after dinner, but I was downtown and got a text that Lovejoy’s was about to get “crazy”. It turns out they were having a High Five Contest. It was a lot of fun, the two pictures I found at that flickr link don’t really do it justice.
Saturday was golf in Lago Vista. Lago Vista GC is a pretty good haul from my house- 45 minutes or so with no traffic. I was playing with Rico and Rocco, down a man from a full 4 man team. We had a rotating 4th shot and playing best ball. We sucked. The main highlight of my round was that my iron play was fairly solid and that I can snap the head off my driver and have it go futher than the ball I was trying to hit. This was the repaired club from before. I think it is time to just spend money on a new one as it seems obvious this club hates me.
Yes. I was one of the monkeys. But that damn $10 grill sucked to put together. The food was great and the company was fantastic. The Mooks’ house is setup pretty well for entertaining especially if the Texas summer heat hasn’t hit and we can use their backyard.
Poker was a lot of fun. Full of donks. We probably had the sanest of the three tables and Don pushed in the dark 4 times in a row at one point. Our sanity was probably our downfall as the chip counts from rebuys at the other tables just crushed ours. I got to sit next to JJOK and chat it up for awhile which was another plus. As it turns out I was never in a position to rebuy so with the add-on I was in for $30 and got knocked out in the mid teens when my KQ could not catch up to Don’s AJ. I watched some basketball and waited for the final table so we could play some cash.
The cash game was a great learning experience- and boy did I get schooled. Before *all* of the heavy hitters sat down I got some cards and pulled some chips. That probably just delayed my cash death. Scott was the primary at this table and I could not get by him. I ended up going busto with JJ against his QQ on a 9 high flop. I made mistakes, but learned quite a bit. I won’t be as much of an ATM machine next time. I headed to the house after 2am and tried to get some sleep.
There was talk of trying to make it to the Round Rock Express game Sunday afternoon but I was too wore out to even see if that was going to happen.
A lot of fun. Thanks to Mook for putting on a spectacular event and count me in as an early sign-up for next April.
