I'm home from BARGE.

I'm exhausted. "I'll sleep when I'm dead" feels like it's about 20 minutes away-- I think I was up 'til 5 a.m. on three consecutive days, then up again at 10 for tournaments.

I don't ever want to live in a place where I'd want air conditioning. I was always too hot when I was outside and too cold when I was inside. Plus, the transitions from one to the other were miserable. Bleah. Ick.

The fortune cookies I made were moderately successful, though I had way too many of them.

I ran into six different BARGErs in the airport on the way home. A Chinese poker game broke out in terminal D, natch.

I did not play one single ring game hand of poker the entire trip. Other than the lowball, I hosed out of all the tournaments.

I love Binions, and I love BARGE. I'm happy.

I'd say the fortune cookies were more than moderately successful. I thought they were great, and it seemed most other people did too. Everyone was always passing around their fortunes.

I hosed out of all the tournaments.

Or did you sleep through them?

It was great meeting you! Karaokee was a particularly fun night.

Quick cookie story: You recruited me to hand them out during the stud shootout, and when I gave one to Gavin, he said something along the lines of:

"I've got two fortunes in mine! The first one says...Rebuy. The second one...hey, this one says rebuy too!"

He also got, "I've seen you play. You must hate money."

When getting whipsawed in Juarez (5 card, two flop, two turn Omaha hi-low) with just a low, I started announcing "I hate money!" with each call. Everyone agreed it would make a great poker t-shirt. Have to get scottro on the case.

What did "B00p it up!" mean? Our guess was a take off of bump it up.

R00lbot said "B00p it up!" sometimes when he raised.

The fortune cookies were great. I got one that said something like "you called a raise cold with KcQh." Of course I gave it to Tanya
