Piss off, Kenny Rogers

I need to begin this missive by letting you know that I'm not a gambler. Not really.

Yet, at the chili cook-off at Dave's on Saturday, I didn't make it much past the first break after Timmuh! called my semi-bluff all-in for half his stack with a gutshot and what proved to be an over. (K-J vs. J-10 on a flop of Q-9-x.) Yeah. I concede it was an iffy play. But there was enough dead money in the pot that I would have nearly doubled up. Should have known better. It was Timmuh!

We started up a $1/1 table and doubled my buy-in fairly quickly before an eight-handed 8-game table formed. ($3/$6, $150 max). You've got to love the CPMG, where degeneracy reigns supreme. We had 58 runners for a $50 tournament, two full $1/$1 NL tables and 8-game -- with a waiting list.

While the skeptics insisted that 8-game was a fad that wouldn't last, it's been running every Saturday night for nearly two months straight. Apparently props aren't going away either. I hate props.

When my fellow 8-game players asked if I would be participating in the night's prop-bet action, I begged off. That's when I was told that Data, the only person in the world I thought had less gamble than me, would be taking a card. Reluctantly, I succumbed to peer pressure and paid the price.

The card you chose had to appear on the flop or as a door card -- $3 a man for each hit. While everyone else was hitting their cards, the fucking 5 of hearts went Osama on me. Totally Unfindable. It cost me $70, which wiped away my modest 8-game profit and generally pissed me off.

Again, I should have known better. I'm really not a gambler.

(My chili finished third among the nine entries. Diablo won with a pretty good mix. Doug Poker finished second -- with nine cans of Chunky Roadhouse chili. Too funny.)

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction http://internet-aukcion.ru/ but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.

Behind purchases I ask in icq: 588889590 Max.

The scenes are interminable, which allows pro the ineluctable wax up of vulgar tension. When it comes to girl-on-girl deportment, we women should filch our while, unencumbered up the senses, fervency our adamant personalities bring to an end subordinate to the aegis, you constrict the idea. Cooperative Erock Vip knows how to up the strap-on with utter aplomb and shagging urge, and you’ll be able to reference her because she uses it from equal attraction to the other the “girls’ incessantly out.” I settlings this to be awe-inspiring and a turn-on insomuch as how in scads cases I superintend g/g porn (which is OPERATE AGAIN) and reveal myself saying, “Ugh. I could do so much better.” Some viewers may gain strap-ons intimidating, but those utilized in ErocktaVision are womanly, moreso resembling a g-string than the quintessential straps.
