I just received quite a few pairs of Air Jordans. Recenlty, the two biggest Nike shoes merged for a limited series, the Air Jordans and the Air Force. This is actually the second pair of AJF (Air Jordan Force) that I own. Needless to say, I love 'em.

In a very Lucasfilm'esque move, Nike is re-releasing several Air Jordans in two packs. All Air Jordans are numbered (i.e I's, II's, III's etc). Nike is releaseing two packs of Air Jordan where the two shoes add up to 23 (Jordan's number of course). I absolute love this series as I have been able to pick up a number of shoes that I previously missed. This pack includes the II's and the XXI's.

Also, some new shoes came in from Eastbay. These were on sale plus I had a 20% coupon to use on top of that.

So I am at the final table at a local casino. There are about ten of us left. I have a somewhat weak hand - King/3.

I had been getting lousy cards all night. I only made the final table because I stayed out of most of the action and I won two or three really big pots. I kind of coasted to the final table. I was one of the smaller stacks at the table when I got the King/3. I had not been dealt a decnt hand in quite some time so I called (the previous four people before had folded).

The next two people fold. The player on the button then takes forever. He is staring at the player on the big blind and constantly looking at his chips. My best guess is that I think he is trying to make a move and trying to steal the blinds and my call. He raises which pretty much puts me all in. The blinds fold and I go all in. The guy calls because it is only a few more chips to him. He turns over an 8/5 off suit. I turn over my King/3 and he completely flips out. He is actually yelling "you play a King/3." He is complaining to anyone who will listen about how bad my play was. I am very quiet at the table so I dont respond to him.

I hit a King but it did not matter because he did not pair up his 8 or 5. He goes on and on about how bad my play was. I ignore him. Ironically, he goes all in a few hands later when I am the big blind. It is only a few chips more for me so I call. I had a 7/4 off suit and he had King/10. LOL, I end up w/ a set of 7's. He's eliminated.

At this point he is boiling. "You wont go far in this game playing King/3!"

I finally reply and tell him "I did not play King/3."

"The hell you didn't. You doubled up on me playing King/3!" he says.

"Nah, I played you. Everyone knew you trying to make a move. You had nothing and everyone knew it." Again, I am stone cold quiet at the tables so all the regular players were surprised to even hear my voice. I then go back into quiet mode and up splitting the table when it was down to two of us. Not a bad night.

I went googling after I saw Bill's post. I did feel very creepy when I found out those pics were of a high school student. Not creepy enough to stop me from posting a photo of her at the more appropiate age of 20!

This is a very interesting to me as a dog owner. I completely feel for my neighbors who have to tolerate my barking dogs. I have been very lucky so far. Like me, all of my neighbors have recognized the different sounds of my dogs' barks. They usually only bark at strangers within a house radius. They are very good at recognizing the regular people of the neighborhood and not barking at them. When my dogs do go off and bark loudly, it is because someone is actually on my property, or the property to my right or left. I am sure my neighbors would rather do w/out the barking altogether but I know that they know what the loud barking means - that a stranger is on our property. Of course it is usually the pizza guy or friends visiting or something. Thankfully it has never been a prowler (that I know of).

If I were you Angry Ewok, I would walk over there and address them face to face. Tell them your concerns about their dog and how loud they are. Whether or not they show you any respect is not in your control. Also, call the non-emergency police phone number. At least here, people are not allowed to shout profanities. The police will respond to such a complaint.

I made a straight flush for the first time since I started player poker. I had the ten of diamonds. The board had 9, Jack, Queen, and King of diamonds. I did not bet too hard as I was worried someone had the Ace of diamonds. I did nicely on that hand as someone had the 8 of diamonds.

It wasn't until a day later that I realized I could not be beat in that hand. I had a straight flush. Even if my opponent had the Ace of Diamonds he would only have a flush.

Another fifth place finish. I made the final table but did not place in the money...again.

I was also the victim of losing another big hand to an opponent with Quads...again.

I had Ace/King. The flop was 10, 10, 10. The turn was a King. The river was also a King.

I called the bet on the flop. I called the bet on the turn. My opponent called my bet on the river. He had Ace/10 giving him quads. I don't mind this one too much. There was a very good chance he was playing the board. Since I had a King, my full house was better than the board's full house.

From the "What a small world" category.

I was watching the 2005 World Series of Poker on ESPN Classics last night. It was Chris Ferguson versus a well known internet player (I can't remember his name).

Ferguson had Ace/Ten. His opponent had King/Jack.

The flop? Ace, Jack, Ace.

Ferguson makes a bet and his opponent calls.

The Turn? ACE!!!

The internet player has a full house. Aces over Jacks. Ferguson has Quad Aces.

Ferguson makes a bet and his opponent calls.

The River? A King! Improving the internet player's full house to Aces over Kings.

Ferguson makes a huge bet and his opponent calls.

That is very similar to what happened to me. The commentators mentioned that the internet player did nothing wrong. That made me feel better, lol. In fact, they gave him kudos for actually having chips after the hand. That an average would have probably gone "all in" with full house in heads up play.

I made the final table of a Texas Hold 'Em tournament last night but did not place in the money.

I had pocket kings. I raise four times the big blind. I get one caller. The flop was then Ace, Ace, Ace.

I have the second best possible hand. An "Aces over Kings" full house. The only thing that can beat me is if he has the fourth Ace. Since he had called my previous bet I decide to bet 3 times the big blind to see where I am at. I actually want to bet more but I am sure he is going to re-raise.

Sure enough he re-raises and I call.

The same thing happens on the turn. I bet, he re-raises, and I call.

I bet after the river and he re-raises "all in." He could have almost anything with Ace, Ace, Ace, and two low cards on the board. There is a good chance he also has a full house. I don't know what the odds are of him having the fourth Ace but I know I have the best possible full house. There is also no straight flush possiblilities.

I make the call and he has the Ace. Blah. I am crippled and blinded out shortly thereafter. All of my friends (who were already eliminated and in sour moods) said I played that hand all wrong. I don't know though. I flopped the best possible full house. How do you get away from that?

A poker thread! Excellent. I can finally come out of my lurker shell and contribute a little around here.

Is there a good site for poker betting rules? We were a little confused about how long the rounds of betting can go on for ( you go around once, or keep going around until everyone has called and no one is raising?)

In Texas Hold 'Em, there is definitely no "ultimate" rules. Even "Casino" rules vary from casino to casino.

If you want to run a strict game, a somewhat popular rule of thumb is to end the betting after it has gone around the table three times.

Here are some photos of my poker set. I am really happy with them. I have to take them to all the house games because all of my friends prefer them to their own chips.
