You are correct sir. Am up to the part when he posts incredible airport/airplane photos of the trip out, but need some sleep so I am going to have to put it down and read tomorrow. Don't want to, tho.

Already started off with a bang right at the beginning with a likely long-forgotten but entertaining Matt Kupe- mbc beef., and that doesn''t even have anything to do with Sac. Once the Sac stuff gets going I think it is only going to gett better. Thanks again for passing along Zepp.

2016 United States General Election~Donald J Trump vs Hillary R Clinton
Hilary received a "Pants on Fire" statement from Politifact today...and Trump has not made one this week, which is a rarity. Again thinking this is Kellyanne's influence; conjecturing based on her media appearances that she may believe the candidate that makes the least amount of mistakes will win the election. Have to say that I think that Trump would have an excellent shot at this if he runs a mistake-free campaign the rest of the way. The question is, can he' Interesting that we have not seen anything since the Breitbart guy came aboard that would reflect his influence on the campaign ...

The Banned Diaries.
Maybe by being engaging at first, but if they cross a line where they are just being an annoyance to you then just not pay attention and hit the headphones' One caveat; I have seen behavior cross the line when they are trying to pick a fight, etc. ; it that case I might call quietly call it to the attention of the floor.

Wouldn't it be better to engage positively with the drinkers to ensure that they are having a good time and thus will return to spew more chips to you in the future' Or is just being quiet fine since they will be back for more in the future regardless'

Passive approach with position or higher variance aggro play?
Ugh, tough spot, at least for me. Think 26 bbs a bit too much to shove pre for my taste especiially against a nit who is unlikely to stack off with something like A-Q. As played, I am leaning slightly toward not shoving the flop, either as you still have 20 bbs after the 3 bet. Just make a cbet as this flop is unlikely to have smashed nit's range, and your main worry is an overpair, but you have blockers to AA and KK and I think even a nit might 4 bet with QQ and even JJ pre, so your main worry is 10-10 or 9-9, I would cbet small, 1/3 pot, imo, and you can still get away from the hand if ...

180man FT Resteal ?
Well, you are 4/4, so its not like you are trying to wait out some shorties to bust. But conversely, you are fairly deep, and there is not a crazy difference in stack sizes (you double and you can be the cl) so it is not like you need to be in a great hurry to find a spot to get it in. So for me, a marginal spot like this would boil down to your perception of your edge over the remaining 3 players. Do you feel like you're the best player remaining' If so, I would be inclined NOT to take a spot such as this, since you have more ways to earn chips than taking a likely flip. If you feel that ...

2016 United States General Election~Donald J Trump vs Hillary R Clinton
To be honest (and I am not trolling you,), the last 8 years of my life have been the best 8. Now granted, some of the reasons have nothing to do with who was in the White House, but some most certainly WERE due to who was in the White House. So I most certainly have something to lose is Trump makes some of the changes he is proposing, which would be detrimental to me personally, Now I am not saying that I am so selfish that would base my vote on personal gratification, but if I was going to give up some of my happiness in life, I would certainly want those less fortunate than me to benefit ...

2016 United States General Election~Donald J Trump vs Hillary R Clinton
Actually picked up this nugget that I believe is good news for Trump supporters, from of all people James Carville on NPR this morning. He stated (and I have NOT fact checked this myself, but he is a liberal so he would likely not put this out there since it is potentially positive for Trump), that only a little over 1/2 of white non-college grad males vote, as compared with three-quarters of white male college grads. Carville's point is that is a TREMENDOUS delta in a large, large demographic; if he could capitalize on just that one group and get them to turn out in the 75% range, he may ...

So I Just Ran Into Epic Beard Man...
I actually WAS in a bar with Bill Murray once, many years ago. Small bar in the West Village. He was quite nice to our group, and quite funny, even though it was one of those neighborhood places people go to not be seen, presumably so they can relax and not have to put on a show for others. Quite a thrill at the time for a twenty-something person such as myself who worshipped SNL, Stripes, etc. And no, I did not take a picture of his left foot. This was in the pre-smartphone days at any rate...

2016 United States General Election~Donald J Trump vs Hillary R Clinton
You know, I never did entertain the possibility that he was just joking about many of the statements in the comic above. But it is actually a rational explanation-- people use sarcasm a lot on this board, and and equal number of people don't get it when they use it, so who knows' These statements are so outlandish that, in away, you do feel like you are being leveled by an excellent leveler. Problem for me is, based on who he attracts n his poll numbers (lower income, uneducated white males) I am fairly certain that most of his audiences at the rallies don't get the joke, where as the Trump ...

2016 United States General Election~Donald J Trump vs Hillary R Clinton
If they actually bothered to read the poll release (Breitbart and Trump) they may have stuck to their strategy of not releasng polls. Here is just one nugget: "We ask voters who they expect to see win, regardless of which candidate they support. Over the years, asking voters their expectation about which candidate will win often has proved to predict elections more reliably than asking how they plan to vote. That’s particularly true when the election is still many weeks away." When they asked that question, Clinton was ahead by FOURTEEN percentage points. And not even whites thought ...
