A lazy weekend
Played a lot of poker this weekend. Saturday I entered the Horseshoe $160 buy-in tourney (held next door at the Road House). Wasn't able to chip up much and eventually went all in with ♠K ♠Q and ran into aces. The card Gods know when you're desperate and punish you -- just sayin'.
Blogger Jusdealem was there with her hubby (Russ), and it was good to see old friends.

Sunday, I played poker in three online rebuy tournaments, and had a good day. Finished third twice (see one of them above) and 15th in another. Didn't win a whole lot of money, but it was a confidence booster.

Between online poker tournaments, I played bridge online with Kate and we won the 8 p.m. speedball IMP game on BBO with 56.45 IMPs scored over 12 boards. Yes, gifts were flying our way left and right, but still it's fun to win.

This is a great time to be a St. Louis Cardinal fan. I'm headed to Busch Stadium this coming Saturday to see my favorite team take on the Boston Red Sox in Game 3. Can't wait!
