Walkin' Back to Houston

I played a couple of SNGs at FTP last night, but only managed a 4 and 5 finish. Just didn't get the hands when I needed them. On the plus side, I cleared some bonus money, so I'm really only out the cost of one of those tourneys. Yay for bonus money.

I felt moved to play a parlay this weekend, so here's an additional pick (wagering $10 to win $60):

1 NFL Football
Cincinnati Bengals/Chicago Bears 25-September-2005 10:00 AM PST
Total Points UNDER 39 for Game -120

2 NFL Football
Atlanta Falcons/Buffalo Bills 25-September-2005 10:00 AM PST
Total Points OVER 36.5 for Game +100

3 NFL Football
Arizona Cardinals/Seattle Seahawks 25-September-2005 1:05 PM PST
Total Points OVER 41.5 for Game -110

Yeah, parlays tend to be sucker bets, but it's sure fun to watch that 3rd game, if the first two win.

I watched the WPT 2005 Mexican cruise limit tournament last night, and I sure felt bad for the amateur at the table. He won his way in via a Party Poker satellite, and managed to move through an impressive field of players to reach the final table with the chip lead. Then, he just donk'd all his chips away to the pro players. I know he had to play better than they showed on TV. I suppose the 3rd place money is decent consolation.

I read somewhere that TJ Cloutier referred to AK as "walkin' back to Houston." Back in the day, when TJ travelled around Texas to find a game, players from Houston would come to Dallas to play, and they all played like AK was the holy grail. They'd overvalue the hand and go broke, and that's why the Dallas players called it "walkin' back to Houston." In the first SNG last night, the player to my right went all-in with AK twice in a row, the first time to double me up, and the second time to get knocked out. Don't overvalue AK, no matter what Vince Van Patten says.
