Matt's Musings #1

On Coin Flips

If I would win the damn hands when I'm ahead, I wouldn't be forced to push when I am behind.

Now that I think about it, that's a pretty awesome quote. Feel free to cite me.

FYI: AT suited or unsuited = The Lamer

  • More historical information on "The Lamer" please.

  • The Lamer has been my nickname for AT for a while now. I hate AT. I always lose with it. I was talking to Weak and someone else about it at the beginning of the Mookie last night, and I said that I never play it anymore, even if it's s00ted.

    Of course, after I get three outered in the Mookie to lose about 3k, I end up being pretty short stacked. I find ATs on the button, and I push after it folds to me. Weak calls me with AQ, and it holds. I found that to be exceptionally ironic.

  • The quote is awesome...I'm sure I will be using that sometime...probably soon.

  • Matt, I missed you last night for most of my run in the 40k....did you see that I won the entire fucking thing?!! I really did! I so wish you had been there to rail me. I know we chatted earlier in the evening but then I guess maybe you hit the sack? Damn you missed a fun one man. And it only took me until 4:36am this morning to take it all down.

  • Love the quote. I think it's even better than the Hellmuth quote that Wes has on his banner.

    The Lamer. I'll get it into the dictionary.
