Excitement in the Air

When I play poker, I usually get a bit excited. My heart beats faster. My legs tend to bounce if I'm sitting down. My energy level is generally up, anticipating the high I get when I push all-in with a solid hand but don't know if I'm going to get paid off or going to lose big.

Yes, this is the REAL reason why I play poker. I love the excitement of the gamble.

Tonight, the excitement is amped up times ten. I have a good hour before I head over to my game, but I feel like going right now, just to get the ball rolling. For tonight, I join fellow blogger Joaquin Ochoa at a New York City cardroom for a $25 "Freeroll". The $25 ostensibly covers food and drinks (non-alcoholic, of course). The freeroll has prizes such as free entry into an upcoming Borgata tournament (in Atlantic City), and possibly a large screen TV, which Joaquin won at the first freeroll held by the room.

I've never played in a NYC cardroom before, but this one seems ideal. They have daily tournaments ranging from $50 rebuy, to $100 freezeout, to $250 freezeouts. They may have higher stakes tourneys too, but they aren't for the likes of me.

The location is great too. It's close-ish to my apartment, and is around the corner from one of fiance Kim and my favorite restaurants. I may stop there before the game for a drink.

Wish me luck. I'm downright jittery in anticipation.

Calm, cool and collected, I'm not. Regardless, it's time for Poker!

So, where's the write up on the freeroll?

I'm dying over here.
