The Quest of the BadBlood Birthday Bounty

We were into the BadBlood birthday poker tourney about 2 minutes when table Two announced a $40 no $60 no make it $70 bounty on whoever takes out the birthday boy. All of G-Vegas finest was there ( teamscoot in Vegas and G-rob late for the cash game) to celebrate the occasion. 11 player 2 tables. The Wolverine had his first suckout with Randy. It was KK vs JJ and caught the set on the turn, that's all he needed to get his stack rolling.

those who were there: Mr and Mrs Blood, the Mark, Mrs all in, the Axeman, Otis, Frank the Tank, the wolverine, the Gladman, Randy, and Myself.

Final three BadBlood, Otis and the Wolverine. I am in the cash game in the other room and I kept hearing "all in". The wolverine first takes down the bounty money and then Otis. The kid strikes again, congrats little one.

Thanks MrsBlood for hosting. She actually made the cake to look like a stack of Bloods new chips. Soco was present 1oo proof. Chips and salsa. Dial-a- shot to TeamScott. A lot of fun, Happy Birthday Bad Blood.

Useless info:
Speaking of proof, did you know "proof" started in the British naval yards on Jamaica. The percentage of Alcohol was measured by pouring it over a small amount of gunpowder and lit on fire. If the Rum was not strong enough it would fizzle out. If it was strong enough a blue flame would burn and explode. This was very literally "proof" of the rums strength. To explode, it would have to be 50% alcohol or 100 proof.

Please don't teach the kid Omaha before I come out there in June.

I'd like a chance to win at something.
