Theory of a Deadman

Another Rock concert comes to town tonight, thanks to the new rock radio station. A few months ago, it was Seether and Finger Eleven, last month Disturbed was here, and tonight is Theory of a Deadman. I'm really looking forward to this concert, because Theory's latest CD has been at the top of my playlist most of the year.

Prior to when this new Rock station was here, our town never got any good concerts. We had to go up to the Twin Cities to see anything good. Unless Air Supply and Lord of the Dance is your cup of tea.


Poker has been going fairly well this month. I'm up a decent amout, and I'm running below expectation, so that is good.

I was finally able to get a seat at a table with a goldmine. When this guy plays, the waitlist goes 30 people deep waiting to get a seat with him. Check out his tableratings page. He mostly plays 2/4 NL, with a litle 1/2 thrown in. He is down 160 THOUSAND dollars since tableratings started keeping track. Wow!

I took about $300 off of him, with most of it coming from this hand:

Full Tilt Poker, $2/$4 NL Hold'em Cash Game, 6 Players

Here is another interesting hand:

This guy was a donk, and I went with my read that he didn't have anything. Too bad he gets rewarded on the river. Booo.
