DADI, Challenge Points, and Pictures (finally)

Yup, I did make it to the DADI last night. I played it safe, doubled up kinda early and never had to rebuy, so after the addon, I was into the tourney for $10. Not too bad. I busted 17th when I played my hand as bad as I probably could have. I called a raise with A8d in the BB and the flop was no help to me. I check, he checked. The turn was an A. We got it all in the middle and he had flopped a set. Well played. Nice hand, sah. Not sure of the name. It was someone I didn't recognize. I think I should have either pushed or folded on that one but I don't think I had enough chips to make him fold anyway.

In any event, I had fun. Update: Oops, got the winner wrong...Congrats to brdweb for taking it all down and to Weak for coming in second. It was a nice 1st prize with all of the rebuy money. Well done. I have to say, I was pulling for Smokkee down the stretch. He had a huge stack, but alas, it wasn't meant to be. The love elf was trying to work the stack, but, apparently it was no help.

Stoopidly, I decided I hadn't had enough, even though it was closing in on Midnight. I jumped into a 45 SNG with Mookie and SLB and it lasted until about 1:30am I guess. I got 5th. I again made some deadly mistakes at the end that cost me some points. I was still happy with making some additional progress in the chase of Johnny Mac in the challenge though. Thanks for railing to him and to Mookie. I ended up railing Mookie, who had joined another one, until about 2:15am or so (yes, I am a moron. shut up.) as he got his first points toward the challenge. He ended up going out 5th in that one.

That's all the poker news. I picked up my new truck yesterday and the coolest feature for me, which I didn't even know it had, is the power sliding rear window. The whole window slides down into the body of the truck and lets the air in. Feels almost like a Jeep or something. Yeah, whatever.

Anyway, I am finally posting some pictures, Hoy and Carmen style, of the rooms that we finished on the third floor. Enjoy and have a great weekend. I am out of here at 2pm this afternoon, on my way up to New Hampshire for the weekend.


The corner with the stuffed chair and the sky light




The corner with a dresser and trophies




The corner with the bat bed




The other new room with the heavy ass queen sleeper




And last but not least, the truck and the non $10 minivan

The kid's room looks sweet! I wish I'd had a room like that growing up.

brdweb took down the DADI, though, not Weak. Weak came in 2nd.

How about I send up some Dolphin posters to balance your boys room somewhat.

Nice ride and yep, it's no $10 Mini-van.

Awesome room, very creative. Nice truck. My buddy that lives in Vegas has one and we were digging the rear window deal.

Gotta echo the chorus here Chris, the truck is bitchin', and the room looks great. As the driver of an aforementioned $10 minivan, it makes me happy to see men being men.
