But How Was The Play, Mrs. Lincoln?

So, pretty good day. I'm sure there's what some might call an "increased level of chatter" in a certain blogging community. I don't know a damn thing about that. Where I come from there are so many deer that the "deer in the headlights" metaphor takes on extra levels of possibility, in the way certain cultures have meticulously differentiated sundry brands of snow, dirt or whaleshit. It's all in the intonation, emphasis and facial expression, to the end that there be an understanding reached between speaker and listener as to exactly what sort of headlight-deer is the subject here. My friends, though we may not share a common language, I hope you understand me when I say that I have the look of a deer that's about to be in pretty sorry shape, liable to end its time on earth as a physics experiment, a cracked windshield, and a furlong of bloody road. Details to come.

Bravo! You could ditch the modest act and actually come out and say that you made a nice little chunk of change last night. First place ain't nothing to be modest about, m'boy.

Next time we play, all my rebuys are on you. Because, you see, I'll need them. Because you're a good poker player and stuff. etc.

You have NO idea how much you were being sweated through Studio. Thanks for the updates while you were playing. It's a classic moment for you, obviously, but we're sharing it with you a little.

LA Poker puts GVegas "in check".

GVegas, your move!

Well done, Mr Pipp. Looks like Gehrig can take a day off himself.

Great win!!!

Congrats! Having Phillip feeding us IM updates of your progress was pretty exciting.

I think this pretty much cements the LA poker bloggers as the best poker players in the blogoshpere. :-)
