  1. Thinking about a destination festival for Texas Country, Outlaw type music. Reckless Kelly, Randy Rogers, Casey Donahew, Colter Wall type stuff. Don't have any experience with any of them, so I don't know what is available. Would prefer if they have premium seating packages available for the olds who don't want to stand and are willing to pay for convenience. I have seen pics of Steamboat, Cabo, etc. but want to solicit opinions and ideas if any are willing to offer. Destination can be domestic or international. Just want a good time in a distant land. TIA.
  2. Thought I had a nice little month or so until I see how hardcore some on here are. Three Days Grace at 713. Echo and the Bunnymen at HOB. First weekend of the month hit The Cult at 713 on Friday, Shinedown at TW on Saturday, and Cody Jinks with Clint Black at Red Rocks on Sunday. Still recovering. Caught Dwight Yoakam at Whitewater week before last. My fave was Radney Foster at Gruene this past weekend for the 30th anniversary of Del Rio, Texas 1959.
  3. Valerie Busick? Went to high school with her. Took a swan dive off the Willowick rather than face the consequences.
  4. Nonstop flight back from Shanghai. Could feel a little rumbling, but figured I could wait it out and get home. Through all of the government stops, still a mild presence. Get bags, upped a notch but nothing I can't handle until I get home. I've been gone several weeks, and looking forward to my own bathroom. Driving home and it starts becoming more acute. The closer I get to home the worse it gets. Finally just a few blocks from home I realize I will not make it. Pull over, jump out of my car, drop, squat, and release; in the street in my own neighborhood. Thankfully it was late at night and nobody saw me. Guarantee you someone was puzzled the next day. Good thing it was before every house had CIA-level security camera coverage around their property.

  9. Not recently, but my kid was about 7-8 years old. Coming back from picking him up from Camp Lonehollow with my girlfriend, we decided to stay a couple of days at Lost Pines. We were out by the pool. My GF told my boy he needed to apply sunscreen before tearing off. He went into the bag to find it. Said, "I only see sunscreen for girls." GF asks what he means. He said, "the label says 'broad' something". It was broad spectrum. No idea where he learned the "broad" moniker for girls at that age. Laughter ensued.
  10. -45 ambient / end of times with wind chill on the North Slope, Sakhalin Island, and Aspen. Probably 120 or thereabouts in the desert somewhere (take your pick).
  11. I know Lurch addressed this somewhat on the previous page, but I want to dig a little deeper on the hand history. How do some of you record your hand histories with such accuracy while playing? Looking for some techniques so I can come back with actual data rather than generalities. Also, what are the best apps to track sessions, bankroll, etc?
  12. Man have I gone into a precipitous downturn starting a couple of weeks ago. I had a great few weeks, then I just seem to have run into bad cards and bad decisions. I think I'm making good reads and have really good hands at the time, and just keep getting beat. It's like I'm just not seeing the board and opponents' ranges properly. The worst part is that, looking back, I can't identify anything I'm really doing wrong; which makes it so difficult to figure out what to change. I understand variance, and maybe this is just that, but I don't believe in coincidence and I'm the common denominator. Thoughts/advice on how to generally change my play and/or approach while trying to get out of this funk? What has worked for you guys in these situations?
  13. Thanks for the advice guys. Always interested in upping my game. Probably going to hit up Prime tonight. If any Surls will be around and looking for a donkey, let me know.
  14. I think you're right that my misconception has more to do with it. I am a fairly nitty player I think. I don't do a lot of bluffing with air. At the 1/3, they seem to play with almost anything so maybe their total hands played averages the outcomes for them. Whereas I play better ranked opening hands, and the number of times the flop hits a far wider range (and I don't connect) lowers my percentage of wins against sticky players with air (since many times they are catching up right away on a dry flop that happens to hit their marginal hole cards). Do I need to widen my range correspondingly to raise my sample size within a single session by playing more marginal holdings which probability would dictate hits the board more often?
  15. Glad to have found this thread. I posted a lot more back on Shaggy, but never a prolific poster. I am primarily a cash player, 90% at Prime in Houston. Usually I start out at the 1/3 while waiting for the 5/5 to get going. I don't think I have ever seen a 2/5 NLH there. The 5/5 usually converts quickly to 5/10 with probably at least half of the ring straddling. I prefer the 5/10 game much more. Those players are respecters of position and sizing. The 1/3 at Prime is a dang circus, especially at tables 1 and 2. Too many times you get rivered or villain hits the flop with starting cards you think they would have folded to a decent PF raise. It can get frustrating going five ways to a flop when you put in a 7-10x raise. I'm really trying to work on staying focused on the possible hands that beat me. I have more winning sessions than losers, but I find I can fall victim in large pots with awesome hands that lose to "awesomer" hands. My internal post mortem usually tells me I should not have come over the top in the end; rather I should have called off and taken or lost the money that was out there. By way of example, last week I was playing 5/10. Details aren't totally crisp so bear with me. I get 99 in LP. Raiser in EP to $30, caller in MP, and I call to go set mining. Flop is K96. Checks to me. I bet $75. Original raiser folds, and MP calls. Turn is a brick. MP checks. I bet $125. MP calls. River is a 6 for 9's full. I bet $175. MP raises to $475. I go all in (had ~$1400 behind at start of hand). He snap calls. I turn over 99. He turns over KK for boat over boat cooler. Now, I know there isn't any way I'm getting away from that hand, but afterward I thought this is just another case of not being situationally aware of what was out there that could have beaten me and flatting his raise. I will try to pay better attention to be able to report hands. I frankly don't know how some of y'all report your hands in such detail without a court reporter sitting next to you. Anyway, glad to be here and thanks for all of the content. It's been fun reading the thread and analysis.
  16. I hit that MUG. Never heard of Paramount before, but wanted to play with Andrew and Brad. It was strictly 1/3, but not as action-oriented as I figured it would be. Played next to Andrew and Brad separately for a total of about 2 hours. Netted about $250 playing for four hours less membership, daily, and seat fees. Brad was basically the guy in his videos. Much more engaging and friendly than Andrew. Andrew actually seemed somewhat standoffish.
  17. As long as your shoulder is okay, we can get through this.
  18. Offense scores 38, they should reasonably expect to win, so I'm fine with the offense even though you can see major room for improvement. That just leaves the defense, which replaced 8 of 11 starters. Seems Orlando could have adjusted to help on the outside where we got torched, and less aggression in the middle to help defend underneath. It wasn't what I hoped, but it is probably right about where I feared we would be. We will continue to improve throughout the season. I think ultimately we will be fine and challenge for the Big XII. Do that, and there is a possibility the only smudge on the year is a single loss to LSU. A lot of good things can happen to a team with that record at the end of the year. Things are not fucked.
  19. aggy will be all in on us losing tonight. It's all they have left now.
