Just Can't Get Away
With all the hours I'm working now, I thought my only Poker outlet was going to be through the writings of others on their blogs. Boy, was I wrong!
As most degenerate gamblers do, I try to keep the talk about my
So while I've posted very little here on the blog, I've had plenty of hardcore Poker discussions during normal working hours at my desk! One of the brothers plays multiple online SnGs and hates the live limit-game, while the other brother is making a killing at the 4/8 tables in the tribal casino. We all even made a trip on our collective day off to try and sweep the money at the daily Cascade tournament (none of us cashed). Me and the limit-playing brother stuck around afterwards though, and cleaned out some other fishy's racks before we called it a day.
Now he's trying to talk me into joining him for an all day session at the Tulalip. He said he made almost $1000 last weekend at the 4/8 tables and showed me the multiple deposit slips. Apparently it's a lot more touristy than my usual hangouts (like the Muckleshoot). I can see where this can be true... the Tulalip is visible from the freeway, and supposedly the wait in the poker room is never that long, allowing the fish to come and go in droves. The 'Shoot is easy enough to find, but it is kind of tucked away so the casual gamblers wouldn't really have the chance to spot it and act upon their impulses; and the wait for a 4/8 table can run into multiple hours on a busy night.
The Tulalip is normally out of my driving range (not worth the trip with so many options to choose from near my own neighborhood), but it's actually pretty close to the new office here, so I could realistically head up there after work. And if all went well, I could come right back to work from there the next day! I'd have to run that by the wife first, but I am definitely going to give it some consideration! Okay, I guess I could do it on a night where I don't have to come back to work the next day!
In other news, and I saw that Iggy posted about this, but I happened across this news the other day as well: Internet Poker Illegal in Washington State
This comment about the bill is pretty damn funny:
Class C felonies in Washington State, include bestiality; assault on a child in the third degree; custodial sexual misconduct in the first degree; third degree rape; four DUIs in seven years; second degree assault; sex and labor trafficking; unlawful taking of endangered fish and wildlife; robbery (1 count); animal fighting abuse or, most egregiously, going “all-in” in a PartyPoker $5+0.50 multiple table tournament. 60 months in jail seems more than appropriate for going “all-in” with less than a pair of jacks.
So unless I hit a big enough score to post bail, I guess I'll be seeing you all again in 3 to 5!
