More bluffing with the best hand 

Straight draws are nice hands with which to bluff/semibluff because of the combination of fold equity and suckout equity. That being said, I was pretty sure I was toast when Villain (25/14 pf) didn't fold the turn.


LOL donkaments 

I just booked a wager with DA, one of my new coworkers. I'm laying 5:1 odds that Phil Ivey won't win the 2009 WSOP Main Event. The best part of the negotiations was when I proposed a small wager size, and DA immediately countered with a significantly larger wager. I feigned nervousness and swallowed hard before accepting the offer.

Anywho, although I am certainly tempting fate by opposing Phil Ivey and posting about it, the image below makes me feel pretty good about my chances.

"Everyone kills people, murders people, steals from you, steals from me" 

So says Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor. (Scroll ahead to 2:45 if you're impatient.) I guess if that's the case, then running a dogfighting ring is like TPing someone's house in comparison.

Anyway, there's a good reason college teams often don't let their players address the media solo. That being said, I'd like to think that if I were one of the reporters there I'd have given Pryor a chance to retract or amend his statement, but oh well.


These people aren't your friends; they're paid to kiss your feet 

From Marginal Revolution, we learn that some marketing company in Australia is selling "friends" to Facebook users.

I have to say that $177 for 1,000 friends is rather expensive, though. For that price, I'd expect them to attend my wedding as well.

This guy is either on super gorilla tilt, or he read my soul. Possibly both 

Villain here is 18/13 preflop, and I had 3bet him a couple times and forced him to fold preflop.
