Man what a bummer night.

Guess it was ok actually.. it just didn't go my way.. but *tomorrow*.. tomorrow will be a different story. ;)

I've been dying for a good 'ol fashioned poker tournament (where a decent amount of buy-in is required among friends)..... and in this case.. my brother in law's brother (which I guess also makes him my brother in law?).. invited me to a Texas Hold 'Em tournament tomorrow night with a $20 buy-in. I was a little surprised, to be honest, because he doesn't have my number and had to go way out of his way to reach me, and I've always thought him and I to be a bit on rocky ground with each other. Haha. I don't know. He always seems a bit moody/standoffish around me and I prefer to not be around unstable (word?) people like that. My sister and her husband say him and I are very similar people, but I don't see that to be the case *at all*. ANYWAY. Yeah. Not to mention the last poker tournament I participated in I knocked him out of the game within the first 5 minutes ... and he wasn't very happy with me because he's very good at poker and extremely competitive. But.... I suppose I'm pretty good at poker too. :P Tonight I thought I'd brush-up on my skills since its been a while. I played in an online 90-person tournament, 250 chip (play money) buy-in and was in first / second place throughout the whole game (far ahead everyone else in chips) until I made a stupid call and went all-in against the 1st-player chip holder. Lost 35,000 chips (boosting his chip count to 75,0000!).... and came in 10th place overall. Ugh. So that was my crappy night and it ended up being time NOT well spent since I didn't win.

.. tomorrow will be different and I plan to sweep the competition (him and people from his work?) and win me some money! ;D I think it's really cool that he invited me.... makes me want to see him more on 'cool'/friendly terms with me and not so edgy/standoffish. Then again, maybe he's just inviting me because he's out for vengeance! Haha. We'll see. Excited!
