Yeah. Another day off. Hey - priorities!
After my run on Wednesday, my legs were still feeling *really* tired yesterday. So, I called my wife and headed down the road with her to my other love (actually fourth or fifth on the list) - POKER! Yes. I like a good game of poker. Just low stakes limit poker. None of that World Series of Poker style no limit stuff for me. To properly play no-limit, you need to constantly calculate your table odds and compare that to your pot odds to determine the size of your bet. That's way too much work.
I can understand why casinos love these limit games. The rake (the percentage the casino takes from the pot to pay for the dealer) is huge. I can understand why people love these games - sounds like you are limiting your upside risk since your bet is pretty well capped at the table limit. But I've got to tell you - people bet way too much money for the cards they have in their hands and on the table. That being said, I still left a small contribution yesterday. Oh well.
Today I'll be out the door in the afternoon to put in the 6 or so easy miles that I was supposed to run yesterday. I promise!
