I have been fairly busy with non poker related things. At least so the official statement I want to make to excuse why I havent been playing. The honest answer is: I just really didnt feel like it. I much more enjoyed socializing with friends and family. The biggest problem I have with WCOOP is that my days just get very long. I want to play a lot more next week, hopefully I manage.
Here is a little before after pic from my last Sunday:
My desk looks like I spend a week in there or so, kinda shocking the mess I make after 1 day .
Poker Maximus II
Main reason to play more is that Poker Maximus has started on Feltstars (and rest of Merge). I want to play as many events as possible.
It has come to my attention that there were longer than usual cashout times at Feltstars. I guess a good problem to have . I havent heard anything official, I just wanted to put this out there. I requested a cashout on my own to see what is going on. I will keep you guys posted.
Website changes – Foldy
I have done several changes to my site. First of all I have moved my custom Poker Hotekey Software Foldy over here. I love that piece of software, it allows you to give a fold hotkey that works across all major sites. Wouldnt want to be without it. I have changed the immediate download. The software is still free, but I ask you to sign up to my newsletter.
Grasshoppers give diarrhea?
I went out to a restaurant in Mexico city on a Saturday. We all ordered drinks and looked into the menu to get some appetizers and snacks along our drinks. It was a very traditional restaurant and while my Spanish is very good, I do not really know food ingredients in Spanish. My uncle orders something that sounds like it will be really good. Acting like I know what I was ordering I get the same. It was some sort of appetizer plate with lots of guacamole in the middle. The guacamole was super tasty especially since it had some sort of herb spices with it. I was really digging that guacamole and those spices with all sorts of backed goodies – at least until my cousin keeps staring at me and says (in Spanish): Do you like *****? I look confused at her while I dig into the guacamole. I go: What are *****? I take another big scoop of the guacamole. At that point my uncle joins in from the other side of the table: Grasshoppers. I am very confused and ask: Where? My cousin points to the guacamole and the big spices. I hover over the guacamole and get really close. I throw up a bit in my mouth, those spices were actually GRASSHOPERS! They were grilled and covered in chili powder.
Kind of strange, I obviously immediately stopped eating that guacamole, but was at the same time shocked how tasty that guacamole was until I knew that those big spices are actually grasshoppers. I guess the eye and mind eats too…
On Sunday I started playing as usual online tournaments, when suddenly I got some pretty bad diarrhea. Def no fun to play online poker and try to 12-15 table with heavy diarrhea. I am not sure where it came from, but I think the only logical conclusion is: Grasshoppers give diarrhea!
