Mrs. Surf and I set out on our adventure Saturday and found ourselves traveling down a road in the forest enjoying the beautiful fall sights when suddenly....Boom!!! Flat tire!! No problem. There's a perfect spot to change it just ahead. We pull in and I make quick work of the tire and I'm lowering the jack when I notice...OH NOOOO...the spare is flat also!!! I forgot about the flat I changed in our driveway a few weeks ago. It was early in the morning and I had intentions to change it later but I forgot. Oh boy....what to do? Needless to say we were severely delayed on our trip but we met some really nice helpful people and did eventually get to the casino. We had a great time but didn't come out winners for the weekend; but we were verrrrrrry glad we made it at all.
My friend "The Shark" had a very interesting hand this week in a live tourney. I am a little undecided on how I would have played it. I would have had to see how the chip leader had been playing up to the point the hand occurred. We'll have to take Shark's word for it that the guy is an OK player but has definitely been playing loose most of the way. Here's the situation. Shark is in a 50 dollar buy in multi live tournament and it's down to four players. He's in the money already and second in chips with about 8,000. The chip leader has almost 11,000 and the other two players have about 2,200 each. Shark is on the button and looks down and finds QQ. The chip leader is first to act and shoves all in with the two short stacks in the blinds of 400 and 800. I'm going to leave it right there for a day or two and see what you guys think then I'll post how the rest of the tourney played out.
Mrs. Surf has never been to California and I'm thinking of maybe taking her soon. I'd like to combine the sightseeing along with a nice tournament. If any of you kind folks on the west coast have any ideas let me know.
