He was first talking about not being able to reach for his phone (he is in a wheelchair and can’t reach for things). Then he was referring to when I left his hat over his eyes as a joke when we were at Starbucks in Tunica. I did this for a few seconds along with, “Are you sure you want me to move your hat?” I was messing with him, treating him as I would any other friend because he is a friend. He knows I ‘m never malicious and like to joke around.

82o. Fold.

____________

AtomBomb: “I believe somebody dropped him on his head when he was a baby.”

Me: “I was in a stroller.”

AtomBomb: “LOL. I knew it!”

____________

This is true. Apparently, someone left my stroller at the top of three concrete steps when I wasn’t buckled-in. The stroller rolled down the steps and my head hit the concrete floor. But it’s cool. If that hadn’t happened, maybe I wouldn’t be writing this book right now. In reality, probably no big deal. Babies hit their heads all the time. I think.

____________

42s. Fold.

____________

MsPokerMafia: “That would be a job for cream cheese.”

AtomBomb: “I’m mad because he bought me sparkling water.”

MsPokerMafia: “If vodka came with it then that’s not bad at all. Lol.”

Me: “I hate sparkling water.”

Me (again): “But I would drink it with butter.”

AtomBomb: “Then why did you buy it for me?”

Me: “Because I was dropped on my head as a baby.”

AtomBomb: “I think you would drink yellow snow with butter bro.”

Me: “As long as it’s yellow.”

River: 4

I bet $4.

He calls.

He scoops with KK.

This is one of those situations where my image helps me. He sees me as a tight player. Therefore, even when I’m betting $4, he puts me on the A. Most players don’t understand the concept of building an image and playing off of it for long-term profitability. But that’s cool with me.

AtomBomb: “He enjoyed it so much he went back for seconds.”

I did indeed get a second bagel (with butter), but I’m not sure I understand the significance of that. Is it bad to eat two bagels?

____________

I usually don’t add content on non-Sunday sessions here, but something interesting took place last night. Two players (not named) started talking trash when I was -$46 for the session.

Three things here…

1. Never motivate your opponents. If they are mentally strong, they will never tilt and they’re going to focus more.

2. Poker reveals character.

3. Never worry about the loud ones.

That session ended up +$822.22 (not included in total above). That doesn’t mean this will be easy going forward. Always remain humble, focused, and emotionally balanced.

On another side note, I was AGGRO in Naples and Tunica, TAG in Cherokee, and TRAPPY in this game. Always adapt to your environment. In poker and in life.
