.....I watched that late night poker game last nite,Phil was up $300,000 or so....Retirement has it's benefits.
      ....my auxillary dog, Murphy was reminding me she was in possession of the same tiny bladder she had yesterday.    Dugan the impish Jack Russell was holding his postion , waiting to take the warm spot I was soon to vacate.
     Okay girls everyone in the pool....I want to see complete # 2's as I dont want to be disturbed during this mornings poker endevours.   I dragged the whole coffee mess onto my expansive desk a couple of days ago to avoid that insidious beeping as I tried to hurry another pot between hands.   .....backup smokes...creamers full...sugars at the ready...big screen angled to the office door ...    I dont want to miss any cruise missle hits in north Africa  or Kadaffys fashion show.
     ....first hour is spent dodging the all-inners,suckout artists and petulent twenty-somethings
     .....second hour trying to identify the solid players, maintain the average stack and avoid tangling with big stacks....
     Okay....dogs outside....empty ashtrays....is there time for a sandwich if I dont get too fancy.
     .....third hour,,someone mentions the bubble is fast approaching...contemplating switching gears....been playing tight solid....waiting for opportunity to exploit that...defend the blinds more aggresively perhaps...
    
.... somewhere between my fifth cup and half a pack of menthols,the banner appears announcing the final table has been reached....my butt is sore and theres no blood flowing to my feet...I;m the shortest stack and have been seriously card dead for a while....attack the blinds....keep that tower of chips next to me  off my back.
      a sweet pair of kings in the cutoff....no panic solid 5x wager....sure I'll settle for the blinds and antes...

....a bone crushing all-in from the BB......crap with a capitol K....okay do the math while rest of the table mucks
......defending with a mid pair?...Ace rag?    blinds hitting 3500 in a minute or so....bleeeeeeeeeeepity bleeeeeep.     Punch the call button.

     .....Ace seven off....congrats at my good read is short lived as the flop comes.....7...4....6 rainbow.

    We all know how this ends...I'm confident i got my cash in good....theres another pack of menthols in the drawer...the 90K starts at 1335...did I miss registration?      No matter....hope I'm not out of mayo
