    My Saturday...

    So i decided to go play the $25 Bounty tournament at my local casino and it started at 11 am but they take late reg until noon, so i get there around 11am, it already started and i go to put my name on the waiting list, the poker room guy goes right on, ur 3rd on the list, i go cool, i waited, waited, like 6-7 ppl walked in after me and like 30 min. later i walk up to check the list, and those 6-7 ppl are in front of me and im last on the list. im thinking..eh not a time to panic yet, lets wait and see if ppl bust and ill prolly get a seat, waited another 30 min. for noon to roll around and theres like 4 pf the guys from those 7 still waiting for seats including myself. Meanwhile the poker room people tell us that after noon, they cant take anymore entrants, doesnt matter if were on the list or not. So 4 guys are sitting here thinking we wont get seats theres like 3 min. until break, and a seat opens up, 1 guy gets his seat, another one opens up and me and this other guy are left and break has begun but a couple tables are still playing..(so ppl can still potentially bust) and a seat opens up, the other guy right in front of me in the list, gets a seat and i cant reg, unreal, i wait a fckin hour for a seat and cant fckin play, was so pissed dude, walked around thinking about what to do, didnt want to make a scene in the poker room as i go there a lot, so was just frustrated, left and went to drive home. ftr it was my fault for not going earlier, if i showed up before 11am i would have just got a seat no problem..

    on the way home i see a yard sale sign, im like, oh right on maybe it will get my mind off this tiltfest fckin bs trying to reg for this tourney, so im driving and its like crazy trying to find this damn thing lol and i almost give up trying to find it and im about to make a U turn and go home and i see the yard sale sign so i go up to he house, park my car and head over...

    Im looking around, nothing really that stands out..and all of a sudden i see this phonograph, im like holy shit, i ask her about it, she gets it to play for me, and im like o wow! it plays? lol and i wanted it so she had it marked at $35, im thinking i dont want to pay face value, but then i dont want to lowball her, so i go, would you take $30? and she looked over at her grandpa, or mom im not sure and she said, ya lol so i gave her the $30 and $1 for this lil lantern radio thing lol it works to

    so its a victrola phonograph and its all original, came with a couple extra needles n shit, just great buy imo

    ill post pics later

    Oh my goodness. I have only had one friend who owned a victrola. I was born in 1960. You stumbled onto a good deal. Those wooden needles are probably hard to come by too. I do not believe too many stores would be stocking those things these days.

    Note to self, be sure to be at casino by 11:00 a.m. for poker tourney to prevent stress on body.

    So, not sure. Would you have gotten the seat if they didn't put the others in front of you on the list. For that matter, WTF did they put other ppl in front of you? You were correct to cool off instead of being kicked out of your local casino, but, I would have talked to someone and let them know at least. If you would have gotten a seat. Well, glad you came up on another deal. WTG.

    I dont thing its a gay story. Its tragic to go to a casino and not get to play, but it has a happy ending as he picked up some stuff that makes him happy.

    Also a lesson to all to make sure when you want to play a tourny get there nice and early to get your seat.....

    I would have been upset also but like you said, you go there often so you did well for not making a scene. You must have good poker patience

    20:58 <Poof> I would trade my husband for gisele
    18:37 <thepokerkid> @thepokerkid: and stop thinking about gay things
