2. Have a positive ROI in MTT on FullTilt AND PokerStars.
I was shocked to discover I had $123K in tourney cashes this year. Not so shocked that I had spent a little more than 123k in buyins to achieve this when looking at balances.
My biggest cash of the year doesn't even show up on stars because it occurred by winning a step 6 WCOOP Main Event seat. August 17th I won a step at all 6 levels turning $7.50 in 5200 $W.
This year I want profitable on both.
3. Do not go bust trying to clear IronMan bonus before the points dork.
4. Try to play within bankroll managment guidelines.
5. Win a BBT qualifying tourney.
6. Spend more time with wife and family, this summer's jolt was a reminder of what's important. But was also an eye-opener of what a warm and supportive community I have joined online.
7. Remind Recess he is a dork whenever he starts to forget.

PokerStars Tournament #130145060, No Limit Hold'em
$10000.00 added to the prize pool by PokerStars
Total Prize Pool: $20000.00
Tournament started 2008/12/28 18:57:15 ET
You finished the tournament in 445th place.
A $8.00 award has been credited to your Real Money account.
I also outlased 33k+ other donkeys in the Star's "World Record" $500k. Key to run was not picking up KK until late. I was down to 5 BBs and A rag had to jam from button. Rude part was when 23o called off last 6 BBs with 23o and turned 2nd pair to knock me out.

Wife 'liked" her gift "but chain of necklace was too short" being male should I know more than choker or necklace?
Now we move to 2nd phase of Christmas celebration which is phone calls to east coast relatives. The 3 of us are approaching 10th anniversary of move to California. Kid is truly a Californian now so don't think we could move for another 5 years without repercussions.
Stage 3 is watching Hoops, eating and eggnog.
A PC Happy Holidays to those not celebrating Christmas.

Tuesday - flop set of Aces, bet 1/2 pot, bottom set repots, I jam for a tiny bit more getting 9:1 on call bottom set rivers quads.
Wednesday - flop middle set against top and bottom pair, it is not the preflop raiser that CR A high flop. I jam he hits river Ace.
2 outs, 1 out, 2 out week so far and I ask waffles for his take:
sirfwalgman: poker is dumb
Bayne: can I quote that
sirfwalgman: say "Only idiots like Prison Guard waterboard wannabees define themselves by poker"
Ironically right after I hit publish I eliminated Mookie from the Mookie with a river 2 outer and taunted him before I made pre-flop call with AQ (vs AA).

We had a going away lunch for one of the co-workers today. Company is small so each time someone leaves it is sad because very noticable.
We ended up with two tables of 16 and two separate checks (with gratuity already added for parties of 6+)
Table I was seated at had one woman but she was the guest of honor. Our check was $357 and change so "table captain" collected $24 from everyone but guest of honor.
Other table was comprised of 10 women and 6 men, woman who made reservations was handed the check and they passed check around table and each put in what they thought was fair portion.
I did politely wait until after I left restaurant to laugh at the squabbling over who had not put in fair share and left them short.
What is driver behind choice to split evenly vs. paying proportionally?
Today I had diet coke rather than beer and was not influenced to not split.

In a wafflesque move the only Southwest flight departing San Jose with a delay was mine and it was 2+ hours late.
The MGM Sports bar had a deal going where you could buy a $9 Beer in a 32 (or 44) oz glass and get $5 refills all night. I definitely extracted value from that and got sloshed.
Apologies to Blogger Mixed game for my horrible poker faux paus of commenting on a hand in progress I was not involved with:
Blinders raised 3rd street with an Ace up and led out again when he also got an Ace on 4th, "At which point STANDING next to table I blurted out "You know he's got a set to lead out", I then slunk away from table in shame, I did sneak back to table to see that PirateLawyer had called him down with a set of 7s and was somewhat relieved that my comment had helped Blinder's reinforce image and PL either made good read or was being calling station and had not let my comment influence him either. As penance I drank more.
I talked to JoeSpeaker for the 1st time, goal was to apologise to him for going off on him in chatbox a couple of years ago during WPBT PLO. It ended up costing me $2 as the bad beat that prompted my blowup was mentioned and the cagey Rooster was quick to insist on $1, I also had to pay Mr Speaker off so lesson learned.
Rest of evening is a drunken blur other than a brutal craps session with Vinnay and then staggering back to Bally's via Planet Hollywood and taking losses on 2 more craps tables.
Kudos to Falstaff and the Venetian for a fine tournament. Saw some old nemesis and made a new nemesis.
Chad once asked in chat "Do you ever win a pot where you haven't coolered someone?"
Joshua found out the answer the hard way when he dared raise my BB with AKo and I was holding crabs. The A K 3 flop sealed his fate when he indignantly shoved on my check raise and saw he was the one drawing to 4 outs that did not come.
I busted Carmen's mom when her top pair on flop was no good against my AA to become big stack at table.
It was short lived as BigMike won a flip aginst my QQ so I was back to starting stack when I was moved next to Carmen and opposite the old nemesis. It was mostly frustrating table as I was card dead and not getting a lot of 1st raise opportunity Pender to my right was raising a lot in front of me and was willing to flip for pots if reraised with hands better than I was being dealt but a wide range. Still hovering near starting stack and blinds in 300/600 range I told Columbo I was going to have to raise his BB since I could always out flop him and looking at my cards was a waste of time. I had quickly peeked at AKdd and raised and Columbo asked SB if he looked. It folded to Columbo and after much delay and me asking "would it help to know if I looked?" Columbo asked how much I had behind before raising to 4k. I quickly jammed to 9500 and Columbo tanked again before folding. I showed my AK which gave me the advantage in what MiamiDon had billed as the "Battle of the Cockroaches" and could claim that victory when Columbo exited 1st.
I managed to lay an AJ (sooted) outflopping AK beat on Change for a well earned ceramic donkey. I am hoping I get to keep but daughter saw it this morning and made some comment about it being "too artsy" for me. I fear my trophy may disappear into daughter's room by the time I get home.
The poker tourney structure had an ugly twist when it suddenly went from 1k/2k 100 ante to 3k/6k 300 ante. I had a lot of 2 small hands which I folded until I was down to 2500 behind my 3k BB when Astin raised. I manged to crack his JJ with Q9 and built up to around 20k chips when Dawn Summers jammed UTG (for 3.5 BBs), the aggressive flip seeking Pender rejammed and I looking at JJ decided it was time to triple of go home. It was good spot as I was against 99 and AT but of course Ace came on flop and I did not improve while Dawn was shouting "Now Hold"
Sunday was spent watching Bucs lose a close game with Falcons, watching Dawn absolutely pwn CK in football knowledge quiz, taunting Recess and Buddy during Ravens Steelers game and getting further crushed at the craps tables.
Ran so out of gas on trip report

Saw clip above on Rachel Maddow Show.
Now that we are past election ban on watching Countdown, Maddow or Fox News has been lifted in Bayne household. I like that dude included last prediction.
Got home a tiny bit too late to play Bodog thanks to software update. Thanks Bodog for timing of that one.

I have decided to make a foray into NLHE cash again because to play PLO cash anymore requires me to play sporadically full ring or 6 Max which is much higher variance. Reading hand histories from the spiritpot crew, recess, bone and gnome are constantly starting with lines like "villain is a donk, 40/11 over 55 hands" or villain is Tag, 15/10".
I have received recomendations weighing merits of Poker Track 3 vs. Hold'em manager, suggestions for hot key utilites and SNG signup utilities from Chad and a myriad of other functions such as hand history displays and bankroll managment software. http://www.pokersoftware.com/ is an affiliate site (that pokerXfactor's 'Fox' seems involved with) that offers reviews of many poker software titles categorised by type and if you sign up for a poker site through them you can get software 'free' through pokersoftware.com. I will apparently have to wait for a new room or try carbon poker out as I already have an account with every other site.
The Omaha Indicator looks intriguing to try as Omaha does not draw nearly the tool development as Hold'em but would like to see what it's odds calculator tells me as I play and the "You have the Nutz" indication may come in handy on occaison when wife/kid are providing distractions. Problem would be any software that alerts you that "YOU HAVE THE NUTS!" would violate the one player/hand standard and be cheating while Stars and Tilt have included TOS caveats that Hold'em Manager and PT3 data gathering from tables you occupy is not cheating.
StatikKling also seems to have written a poker application that Combines multiple Full Tilt Tourney files into a single file that looks interseting when loading tourney into PokerTracker or a hand replayer.
PokerSoftware.com also has reviews of various SNG/ICM trainers, boards to discuss poker software and many more categories for all of us to explore as we try to improve poker games.
They may even have something that can help the Worlds Worst Poker Player!

during the Woody Show on Live105 as part of a "worst local band" segment. Song lyrics still cracked me up.
Similar talent was on display at the Bodonkey last night, I had two hands lose to rivered gutters, got dealt AA three times and only collected the blinds (once when Hoy gave me a walk in BB) and had an A rag lose to a desperate Hoy shove of KQs when river Ace gave Hoy flush. The UTG limp call with JTo was the most surprising aspect of how that hand played out.
Mookie is tonight and I should make it as I have completed anniversary preparations.
Been married 14 years 365 days now. I will have to check with east coast friends on where they set the over/under.

A bitter sports expert referred to the Georgia Tech Offense as a "1940s Offense" as they ran all over his team in a previous game.
I missed the 2nd quarter of the Georgia Tech @ Georgia game as I had to go with wife as she got "routine mammogram". Ladies please get checked (Waffles will examine too but he is no expert).
We managed to get to StJohn's for lunch (they have a close to authentic Philly Cheesesteak available) and the start of a very enjoyable 3rd quarter. Outscoring rivals 24-0 in a quarter while outgaining them 204 - 1 is sweet.
I giglied Saturdays with DrPauly when I put Spaceman on AA rather than set of kings.

Will still try to bust guest bounty player Eric "Rizen" Lynch in the Bodog Blogger Tournament Series tonight. Although it will not provide the same joy as busting waffles when he makes a donkey move.

I did play some lunchtime PLO and Limit O8. Making money is clearly possible but there is some variance. In limit O8 there were numerous occaisons where people chased an A2 low on possible flush board one card to come (heads up or with many) and there was lots of betting non nut draws and non nut hands.

I made cameo appearance on BD Radio but every time I spoke my wife thought I was talking to her.
Continued a trend in 4k of going out 40-60th with AA. Some clown raised AT74 (suited Ace) I reraised my AAT8 getting 4300 of my 6k chips in preflop only to see Q72 rainbow flop where I got jammed and lost on turn 7. Beauty of hand is every time money goes in dude is 2:1 dog but once he calls pre-flop he is committed on whiffed flop as well.
Non-poker content follows:
US Bank has completed their fraud "investigation" and have concluded I opened "premier line of credit" and made transfer at "financial institution" on Aug 8. Wife and I do have a joint account at US Bank but it is really her account and my only trip to a US Bank branch was to pick up a moneygram when FullTilt's bank transfer and check requests weren't working for me. I am quite sure I would have remembered doing paperwork for line. I was quite drunk Aug 8 and spent most of day at Planet Hollywood's Pleasure pit playing blackjack, don't believe I borrowed an I-Phone to do on-line banking. Their customer service has been appallingly bad as they also refused to talk to my wife about the line sending her on full blown monkey tilt.
My theory on what really happened was a bank employee opened account for me in order to meet quota or bonus and there must be some transfer of funds component to bonus as funds were transfered from new account to account of wife's.
I would like to request of blogger community when you open new bank account do not choose US Bank! But if you do you were warned so your fault.
The main beneficiary of the Big 3 automakers current product line is OPEC. So let Saudi Arabia buy them out. They would be following HP's model of producing printers at break-even (waffles accounting) while selling the ink for the profits.
When I was in college (1980-1984) a few of my friends managed to get "union jobs" in steel mills and auto manufacturing in rust belt. They generally got paid $17/hour, 1.5x over 40 and 2.5x for Sunday hours. They would work 70 hour weeks until they hit 490 total hours because at 500 hours they got benefits. I know unions have made some concessions since then but I have to believe Big 3 have fatally flawed managment/union relationship that no amount of bailout money can truly fix.

Getting older sucks, but it beats the alternative.
Originally I had 7 Uncles, the evil uncle died almost 20 years ago.
Last 12 months 3 more uncles have died with most recentdeath coming yesterday. Being in late 70s the recent deaths are not unexpected by actuarial tables but losing 3 of the 4 in that age group seems like low odds.

I think a portion of my income is already taxed at 9% by the state.
10% of my co-workers were laid off by my company this week.
The stock market is down 10% since election.
And it feels like I have a 10% chance to have a bigger pocket pair old up when approaching the bubble of a tournament.

Seat 3: PINTHEKING (button) didn't bet (folded)
Seat 4: kinzite (small blind) showed [Ks Jh 3s Kc] and won (23,242) with a flush, King high
Seat 5: godlike5 (big blind) folded before the Flop
Seat 6: ZanosiKapusta folded before the Flop
Seat 7: dpalermo folded before the Flop
Seat 8: bayne_s showed [Ah 8c As 8d] and lost with three of a kind, Eights
Seat 9: airsham didn't bet (folded)
Instead of a top 5 stack I am out. kinzite had a few other suckouts to get to a top 3 stack when money bubble broke only to manage to go out 27th. I have no idea what it takes to go from 3rd to out when it was 27 paid.

You are The Devil
Materiality. Material Force. Material temptation; sometimes obsession
The Devil is often a great card for business success; hard work and ambition.
Perhaps the most misunderstood of all the major arcana, the Devil is not really "Satan" at all, but Pan the half-goat nature god and/or Dionysius. These are gods of pleasure and abandon, of wild behavior and unbridled desires. This is a card about ambitions; it is also synonymous with temptation and addiction. On the flip side, however, the card can be a warning to someone who is too restrained, someone who never allows themselves to get passionate or messy or wild - or ambitious. This, too, is a form of enslavement. As a person, the Devil can stand for a man of money or erotic power, aggressive, controlling, or just persuasive. This is not to say a bad man, but certainly a powerful man who is hard to resist. The important thing is to remember that any chain is freely worn. In most cases, you are enslaved only because you allow it.

After watching above and realized Sarah Palin created the parody run by SNL I realized what new prop bet with Waffles had to be.
Bayne: you give me 2:1 odds and I will wager Palin is not McCain's running mate by Novemeber
sirfwalgman: wow thats an interesting bet
sirfwalgman: What date is the election?
Bayne: I think it is November 4th
sirfwalgman: 25 bucks
Bayne: I put up $25 to win $50?
sirfwalgman: only 25 because I think this is a total 50/50 proposition
sirfwalgman: you put up 12.50 to win 25 lol
Bayne: $12.50 to win $25
Bayne: it's a wager
sirfwalgman: I think personally
sirfwalgman: it would be too embaressing for him to do that this late
sirfwalgman: even if she is a total wreck
sirfwalgman: but I could be wrong
Bayne: I think his will to win > risk of embarassment and he wanted Lieberman for VP anyway
sirfwalgman: she went from being a HUGE asset to being a joke
sirfwalgman: the Democrats must love this

Having opted not to vote myself and wife would vote for pro-choice Hoover over pro-life FDR we will drop daughter off at "8th Grade dance" and see a movie "Nights in Rodanthe" rather than watch alternating sound bites on talking points that passes for debate in this country.
