Raise or Fold:  A Year of Risky Business

Writing and playing poker as if they were activities worth doing well.

Monday, January 19, 2009


I arrived home from AC at 7 in the morning and immediately collapsed into bed. I slept like a rock, but I had a curious dream. In this dream, I was in some mountain resort in Colorado (?) where there was poker. I hooked up with one of the poker-players I met on this recent trip to AC (a young hipster-type fellow who I wouldn't have said made much of an impression on me at the time), and we proceeded to have a nice little romance. We were becoming close and it was really pleasant. Then there was a horrible rumble, and I looked out the hotel window just in time to see a giant wall of snow descend. I realized that both of us were about to die, and before I could say something affectionate to him the avalanche hit, the dream went to black, and I awoke.

I've never had a dream even remotely like that before. On the one hand, I have to say that I truly hope that death is that blank, painless, and abrupt. On the other hand, WHAT THE HELL IS THIS SUPPOSED TO MEAN???

Too weird.

It's about change. Death is a good thing in dreams.

You loooooove him. You're gonna marrrrrry him =p

Either that or stay the hell away from CO... Or snow... Or maybe it meant you needed to slide down the water-slide at Sesame Place.

Means you're about to meet a tall, blonde, handsome man (the mountain part), who will run off with your bankroll (that's the blackout part).

Yep, the one place we've got gambling is in the mountains... So oddly enough, your dream has a touch of realism to it.

Sounds like somewhere deep down you feel like everything good that happens to you is going to ultimately end in doom and destruction.

That or you were REALLY hankering for a Klondike bar.
