Conrunner Kevin

Paid Half My Buy-In

After Friday evening's ice-breaker event (design a Worldcon bid on short notice, picking from among three odd sites: A Tube Station, the Palace of Arrakeen, and The Moon), many of us repaired to the lounge off of the hotel's atrium for Dealer's Choice poker games. (The Tournament is Saturday night.) This was a cash game, Dealer's call, low stakes, with a $10 buy-in and chips of 25 cents, 50 cents and 1 dollar.

After an early hot start, I went quite cold and was in fact all-in in a game of Omaha 8-or-better when I got lucky and there was no qualifying low and I ended up with a queen-high flush with four players still in the hand at the end, which filled things out nicely. At the end of the night, I found myself up $5.25, which will pay half of my buy-in for the Probability & Statistics Seminar Tournament tomorrow night.

People have been after me to set a hard start time, but I can't, because it depends on when the Fannish Inquisition ends. If we get done sooner, we can play poker sooner.

Meanwhile, it's nearly 2 AM, and I've been up since 4 AM Pacific (6 AM Central) this morning, and have to be up again at 7 AM local time because I have breakfast meetings at both 8 AM and 9 AM. Bleah.
