Greg Turns 70

Greg's 70th birthday game was fun. Players included Bill, Peter, Bruce, and Phil, as well as the old, old birthday boy from China.

It was a fine game, but with little drama. Most of us held fairly close to buy ins. Peter took me out one time with Aces full of tens when I had sevens full of tens. But otherwise there were few tricks and few surprises.

I won $93. Greg came out ahead $45 and the rest of the players left their money.

Peter was ahead over a hundred dollars at one point, but it dwindled away and in the end he went all-in in one desparate attempt to build up his bankroll and lost it all. So he lost $10 for the five hours of play.

Good to be home and playing the regular game. It feels like I am in one of those odd couple games on television that Jack Klugman used to organize in his living room.
