Well, another weekend has come and gone, and Friday night and Sunday were more or less uneventful. Saturday, on the other hand, was eventful enough for an entire weekend, more or less.
One of my coworkers has a semi-annual Texas hold em tournament he holds at his house. Well, yesterday was the fourth such tournament, and I was obliged to attend as I’m one of the regulars of the somewhat-biweekly poker game. This time, though, I brought Worff (who some of you might remember from EFNet #Vampire) along with me. After a lunch at Hooters (which was right by his apartment) and getting beer from Kroger’s, we made our way to the tournament. There were 25 people there, and we each put $100 in; all in all, $2500 in prize money, to be divided up as follows: 50% to first place, 25% to second place, 15% to third place, and 10% to fourth place. The tournament started at 3:30 PM. It was a long and hard fight, but in the end… I was knocked out at around 8:30 PM or so in fourth place. Worff ended up winning third place. I’m actually kinda happy… I did better than any of the regular poker game attendees, and I also outlasted all of the T3 employees. I’ll probably hear all about it when I get to work in the morning. After the game, Worff and I headed back up to the north side of town; we stopped in IHOP for dinner, and then I dropped him back at his apartment.
Today’s been more or less uneventful, other than doing a little MK Online related work in preparation for tomorrow’s downtime. (We have some changes to the moderation system that need to be implemented.) I also played some Counter-Strike: Source for the first time against bots. I’ll do some more practice before I bother playing online. I also spent some time downstairs in the kitchen so that Chase could get more used to having me around. I should have spent it cleaning my bedroom up (especially the computer desk and area in front of my closet), but I can always do that next weekend. In any case, like I said, I just did nothing worth noting today.
Anyway, it’s time I headed off to bed, as I have a long day of work ahead of me tomorrow. Fun fun…
