Redskins VS the Eagles Professional Football

A poker buddy of mine knew I was in the United States so he offered to sell me some Football tickets for the Monday night football game. I had only been in the United States for a few weeks and had already been to Corning New York for the Wineglass Marathon. Then I was off to Ann Arbor to visit my niece and go to the Penn State University of Michigan Football Game,  now on to Washington DC for Monday night football.

My brother Lee lives in DC you might remember him from my blog post on his wedding.  Rather then go alone I invited Lee along. I got the tickets for $110.00 I had no idea if that was a good deal or not. I trusted my poker buddy and never thought he would rip me off. I later found out through my brother that the Redskins have been playing real bad and we could have gotten better tickets for $25.00 to $40.00. That is life, I will make the money back beating my buddy in Poker.

The game was great for Eagles Fan and not so good if you were rooting for the Redskins. Since I was there just to enjoy the game and catch up with my brother I had a great time. See attached Pictures and Video below.

After the Game I made my annual pilgrimage to the Fruit Cake Factory, if you are interested feel free to look at last years story. This year we made 80 LBS.

As far as poker goes I have built my bank roll back up to a respectable number and in fact have made some nice withdraws to pay for all the travel. I am now back playing $.50/$1.00 and hope to continue with a strong finish for the year.

I have started playing ACE KING more aggressively and that has paid off nicely, almost always trying to end the hand before the flop or if need be right after the flop there is an example below.

From DC I am off the Colorado for some skiing and snow boarding.





AK Playing to WIN!
