T3chlady Wins Her 3rd NPP Tourney

T3chlady celebrates her NPP win her way!
She and Absea98 opened a little breathing room between them and the rest of the field chasing for the last quarter seat in the NPP Finals.

This was a great finish tonight by T3 and Absea98, who was trying for his 9th win. He came up just short as T3chlady handled this 17 – player field expertly.
It is still going to be an exciting finish to this season. Be here or be square.
On to the action:
20 min: Theedouble*d (17th) loses to LittleRedElf’s flush.
24 min: ThePunk75 (16th) sees his pair of Queens lose to Absea98’s pair of Kings.
26 min: Wingsfancurt (15th)
26 min: K9isadog (14th)
36 min: Sanster89 (13th)
39 min: Mikeniks-Faldo (12th) Faldo tried to concentrate on my play tonight, but that only seemed to make it worse. Short-stacked (SS), Faldo goes with (A5) and is called by Suetman123 with (KJ) and a [K] obviously has to fall on the flop.
But – to be honest – Faldo was still alive only because his (A3) hit a [3] on the turn to beat Pre01’s (AQ) earlier. It turned out not to be any of our nights. Those Faldo chips are just unlucky!
40 min: LittleRedElf (11th) Missed it. Still beating the dog - because I lost.
45 min: Pre01 (10th) Missed it. Still turning the heat up in the aquarium to torture the fish – because I lost.
52 min: Suetman123 (9th) sees her (Qc Jc) get run down by Rjmech’s flush.
See what I mean? They had touched Faldo chips.
PS: Don’t call PETA or Animal Control – Faldo really does not own a dog or an aquarium. But… that may be why.

We Have One Shot (non-lethal) Left – and We Better Not Miss

You better hope we make a change!
AWOL, lazy, law breaking and treasonous Democrats – again.
Next time you hear a Democrat attack the Paul Ryan budget plan that balances our budget (or close) in ten years – whether you agree or disagree with it - please remember this:
The Democrats were Constitutionally required to submit and approve a budget every year of the Obama administration. They never did. Obama finally tried – twice – and it was voted down 270 – 0 both times by Congress. Not even one Democrat could vote for it and show their face to their voters. Democrats NEVER worked on a budget after that – even though they are obligated to by law.
The U.S. Congress is supposed to approve a federal budget every year in the trillions of dollars. Few people know how much money that is so we created a breakdown of federal spending in simple terms. Let's put the proposed 2011 federal budget into perspective.
• U.S. income: $2,170,000,000,000
• Federal budget: $3,820,000,000,000
• New debt: $ 1,650,000,000,000
National debt: $14,271,000,000,000
• Recent budget cut: $ 38,500,000,000 (about 1 percent of the budget)
It helps to think about these numbers in terms that we can relate to. Let's remove eight zeros from these numbers and pretend this is the household budget for the fictitious Jones family.
• Total annual income for the Jones family: $21,700
• Amount of money the Jones family spent: $38,200
• Amount of new debt added to the credit card: $16,500
• Outstanding balance on the credit card: $142,710
• Amount cut from the budget: $385
It’s a sick government you voted into office. The really mentally ill and criminal are called Democrats. You have one shot left.

Psalm 109:8My wife and I were in slow-moving traffic the other day and we were stopped behind
a car that had an unusual Obama bumper sticker on it.
It read: "Pray for Obama.  Psalm  109:8".
When we got home my wife got out the Bible and opened it up to the scripture.
She started laughing.  Then she read it to me. I couldn't believe what it said.
Psalm  109:8 ~ "Let his days be few and brief; and let others step  forward to replace him."
At last -- I can honestly voice a Biblical prayer for our president! Can I get an AMEN?

Absea98 Wins to Join the Race for a Seat in the NPP Finals!

Absea98 had help sweeping away the competition!
Sorry for the short report and lack of detail. Faldo is away on a business trip and is fighting thru a cold, an eye infection, a tweaked back …and even a stubbed toe.
The internet works well here until the rest of the hotel gets on. Then the signal drifts. I may have to move my play from the room to the lounge, if I stay here again.
That won’t help my reporting at all - just the signal strength. I have heard rumors that bars can be a distraction. I hear things.
On to the action:

45 min: KingBing420 (7th) sees her (77) run into 95corolla’s (99).
50 min: A SS 8thmile (6th) has to go with (AT) but can’t catch 95corolla’s (JJ).

Rjmech Wins Northville Deep Stack Tournament!

Tell us about it Rj!

“It was a cool day with misty rain too miserable to golf in so I decided to play in this tournament.

20K in chips, 20 minute blinds, and 60 runners.

I had run my chip stack up to 100k with 4 tables left and I had my (AA) cracked by (TT) when a [T] hit the turn.

Blinds were 1500/3000 I was happy to find and had 8K left and doubled up with (22) against (KK) when a (2) hit the flop!

With 16K chips left, I quadrupled up with (AJo) on a (J82) flop. Blinds were 1500/3000 so I am now back up to 64K

I doubled up with (AJ) again vs (AT) up to 128K and head to the final table with 150K or so.

Played solid poker and doubled up again with (JJ) vs (88).  Sitting pretty now with 300K

I wait for other players to bust out and I play a good player heads up.

The final hand Blinds were 10K/20K I had (93) of hearts and limp on the button and flop (369) rainbow.  Gin!

I am playing an aggressive opponent and lead right out with 30K he raises me to 130K. I shove all in for 500K and he tanks for a while than calls me with (A6o).

I have been aggressive throughout the match and middle pair top kicker is not a bad hand to do this with. The board ran out and I win the tournament!!

Northville Downs is one of my favorite places to play and you can usually see me there every Friday and Saturday night.

It made a miserable golfing day into a wonderful poker day!

1st prize was $1800 all mine! No chop - just the way I like it!

Good thing was that no one asked, so I wasn't pressured.” – Rjmech

Great job Rjmech!

Douge2’s Humor Corner: Nothing But the Truth

Fair Wages?
The Kansas Department of Health and Environment claimed a Central Kansas farmer was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an agent out to investigate him.

State employee:  "I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them."
Farmer: "Well, there's my farm hand who has been with me for 3 years.  I pay him $200 a week plus free room and board."

"Then there's the mentally challenged worker.  He works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of all the work around here.  He makes about $10 per week, pays his own room and board, and I buy him a bottle of bourbon every Saturday night so he can cope with life. He also sleeps with my wife occasionally. "

State employee:  "That's the guy I want to talk to... the mentally challenged one."

Farmer: “That would be me.”

Got to Go With Your Gut Feeling
A plane crashed in the middle of rural Tennessee. Panic stricken, the local sheriff mobilized and descended on the farm in force. When they got there, the disaster was clear. The aircraft was totally destroyed with only a burned hulk left smoldering in a tree line that bordered a farm.

The sheriff and his men entered the smoking mess but could find no remains of anyone.
They spotted a lone farmer plowing a field not too far away as if nothing had happened.
They hurried over to the man ' s tractor.

"Hank," the sheriff yelled, panting and out of breath. "Did you see this terrible accident happen?".
"Yep. Sure did." the farmer mumbled unconcernedly, cutting off the tractor 's engine.

"Do you realize that is the airplane of the President of the United States?"

"Were there any survivors?"
"Nope. They ' s all kilt straight out," the farmer answered. "I done buried them all myself. Took me most of the morning.."

"President Obama is dead?" the sheriff shouted.
"Well," the farmer grumbled, restarting his tractor.  "He kept a-saying he wasn't... But you know how bad that sum-bitch lies."
