I'm pretty sure I made a few mistakes in here somewhere. Like, can donk/cap, donk/call, donk/call every really be the correct line for any hand ever? And well hand 2 pretty much played itself once I decided to raise and cap preflop with 5-high. Sure was nice to drag those two. Also, as an update Ironman is going very well this month, with me getting 200+ points (the maximum amount that helps you) all 7 days so far. With a start like this it's going to be tough even for me to miss gold, and I might even have a chance to hit iron.

And in closing, my car was smashed into for the second time this summer while parked at my complex. The last time was right before I left for Vegas, and by "right before" I mean "while I was sitting inside it putting on my sunglasses with the engine running but in park". This time I went out to walk the dogs last night and saw my car and said "Huh, I don't remember parking that crooked, it'd be really hard to do that from a right turn there that's odd" and then walked the dogs around, then came back and noticed the entire back driver's side panel had been smashed in. No note, no nothing, and all I could say for certain is that it had happened sometime in the last 36 hour period. Now Danielle and I have one "garage" spot which she's been using the last two weeks, and I've been parking out in the wild with the mentally disabled people (I don't know, maybe the mentally disabled people also park in the garage, which is really just a covered spot with no door, but with assigned parking only one of them is allowed to park next to us) and for some reason decided to park in the horizontal spot near our front door where my car got backed into last time. I don't know why I did this, maybe deep down I simply couldn't believe that people were dumb enough to not even look behind them when backing out of a parking space and therefore smash into a car that was 25 feet away, maybe I just wasn't thinking, maybe all the other spots were taken, I really don't know. All I know is that in 6 months of living down here a 15 year old kid has basically thrown his skateboard at my car (I don't even know how he fucking did this, and I really don't understand how it left as much damage as it did), and two idiots have backed into it while it's parked. In 3 years of owning the car in San Francisco nothing even remotely this idiotic happened. Sure I got hit by a drunk guy who promptly attempted to drive away and me and "dude in the the other car" had to chase him to a gas station, but honestly I was more OK with that. This is just infuriating. Danielle suggested I complain to the front office and my response was "What complaint should I make? You're letting too many stupid assholes live here?" I mean seriously, what can they do?

Thank you all for listening to my rant. When somebody smashes into my car next month I'll try to handle it a little bit better.

So is this post about how you run good at poker?

Hand 1: Basically drawing dead and only having runner runner outs and chop outs, BINK

Hand 2: Spew preflop, flop a gutshot against top set and BINK

nice life

Before you fix your car you should "pay it forward" and randomly smash into some other parked car in your lot, right in the spot your car got smashed into.

Your insurance man won't be the wiser, and you will finally see how much fun hit and runs can be!
