    Thanks for the information on Sweden Net. I also looked on MSN. It sure looks like you got a lot of lakes and rivers there. I was suprised that in the summer the average temperature was only 67 degrees F.

    I must of ran into Dog after you left. He gave me a verbal slap to the head once in a while to keep me in line. But other than that I played my game and got 2nd both times.

    Congratulations on the win!
    Keep up the good work.

    You played solid poker last night and I’m glad you knew when to call it quits, a very smart move I need to learn more about. lol

    One thing I tried too get across, between the lines, was that in Omaha h/l we shouldn’t get in the habit of playing every marginal hand we catch.

    Discipline and patience are needed in poker and are mandatory in Omaha h/l, like when I catch A 2 9 Q rainbowed, the urge to play for the low hand is always in my mind, but the discipline takes over and I know I must fold crappie hands like that.

    Patince to wait out the runs of poor starting hands is a must because the winning stratagy in h/l is to only play to scoop the pot.

    I’ll watch you play anytime I can but you must remember I have given bad advice before, lol, just ask Blaggz, he’s got lots of horror stories to tell.

    Take Care Netty and as always ….
    See Ya on the Felt

    Hey Dave.. Don’t forget the trees.. man the trees.. mile after mile after mile of them..

    I once drove from the UK to north Sweden and once yah get past Stockholm in the bottom quarter of the country .. there is nothing but Elk and Trees.. It’s surreal driving for two days past Fir Trees and no people..

  4. netsson Says:

    Blagger that’s the real beauty to be able to drive mile after mile without even have to blend down the headlight’s and to feel free of anyone breathing down your neck all the time! That’s partly why i’m moving from stockholm!

    dog: I never ever play hands where i can’t see i get the high or both h/l so never chase the lo with a bad highhand that’s one of my strategies! Never play anything that gives me less than a flush! As i earlier said a lo flush is better than a high straight so i never play ace, king, queen, jack rainbow either. my ultimate startinghand is ace, ace, king, 2 in 2 suits! and i try to limit my involvment in the pot if my hands not in the region of that.

    Svcmgr WTG on the second there. I’ve noticed that dog doesn’t have to say anything or slap verbally it’s enough to know he’s watching sometimes!

    Oboy now he only has to say he’s watching and then he can go to sleep and i behaive (focus) , Don’t know if i’m gonna say bad pinkdog bad or WTG rofl

    Great point Dog. I always have to remind myself that the object is to scoop. Throwing money into a pot in which you could be quartered or worse is not very smart.
    Thats what happens when you play A 2 and crap.
    I really don’t think a lot of people actually know how to really play the game.
    Thanks for the help.

    Wilderness – I guess you just hope your car doesn’t break down.
    There is only 9 million of em.
    We got 3 million just in Chicago, Il.
