      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

World Poker Store State Finals

Recommended Posts

Got invited to the World Poker Store finals yesterday at Jackpot Junction in Morton. Don't know if anyone else from this site was there or not, but what a fun day (until I got beat) We had alot of people there, I never heard a number, but am guessing around 400-500 people. I ended up in the 80th-90th range before getting knocked out. At the last state finals, I made the final table and ended up getting 10th place (out of 400 or so). My highlight of the day was getting to meet poker pro Marcel Luske and getting my picture taken with him:

Where's the upside down sunglasses?

Looks like fun. I was just saying to someone last night, that if I ever came into a ton of money, I would like to spend a lot more time playing poker.

There was a female Asian player there as well, but she isn't as well known as Luske, and to be quite honest- I can't remember her name. My cell phone takes a horrid picture, either that or my buddy had the shakes! They had come over from the Trent Tucker Invitational, wish Michael Jordan had came with them, that would have been cool!

Zamboni,

I think you would have made the final table if you were sporting the Silver and Black! That shirt choice probably led to your collapse! LOL Just kidding, man, I love Texas Hold Em and follow both the World Series and WPT. I like Marcel, he is very entertaining at the table. I also like Daniel Negraneau, Phil Locke and Antonio Esfandiari. I played with Phil Helmuth the last time I was in Vegas at the Mirage, he was OK, I think he is a tool but he is entertaining, kind of like Mike the Mouth. I got his autograph but did not have my cell phone on me to get a photo.

Zamboni,

Did you see the get up Helmuth wore to the opening day of the Main Event, too funny! The thing is I think he really got into wearing it. What a goof. But he does know how to play tournament Hold Em' that is fo sho!

When I made the final table at the last finals I got a Hellmuth golf shirt, pretty nice shirt. I actually think he is in the top 2-3 poker players in the world. He says stuff we all think, just don't say.

I know this is completely off topic....

Friday night at Running Aces, the bad beat jackpot hit, $84,000.

Worst part of that whole deal, it was the seat that lost in the hand, for the biggest share of the jackpot, I'd sat in when they opened the table, a 2/4 table. Too bad about an hour before the jackpot, I'd thought I'd win more money at a 3/6 table. laugh

I went back Saturday night (yes, wife and kids were out of town) and the flippin jackpot went off again for $63,000. This time though it was the table next to me.

I guess I can say at least I was in the same room.

I was almost involved in a bad beat in Kansas City at Harrahs. This was back when the Aces/Jacks full house rule was minimum for a bad beat. I had AJ and flop was A A J. I was betting, getting raised, re-raising, and so on and so forth. Me and one other guy. Plus, there was a 3rd guy involved that was all in, it was a 3/6 table. I was wanting to lose to JJ so bad, so I would get the big share of the bad beat. Bad beat was about $250,000. Very nice. Come showdown time, he had A J as well. The all-in guy didn't have anything. He said I thought we had a bad beat going there, I told him I did too.

    • Check striker's page.  They have some of last years stuff onsale.
    • It's been awhile since I've had time to upload pictures. There has been a lot of progress made!  The siding is up and finished! The process was more difficult to manage with the bends and my lack of tape measure skill lol If i were to do the bends again I would make sure to order 2 sheets extra and order them at the length required to wrap the entire house. From the point on the nose all the way back to the middle of the rear wall. There ended up being vertical seams along the sides here, which in hind sight, isn't ideal.  One thing that i'm not sure I've noted is the bottom white trim. A lot of people use J- Channel on the bottom but you can order a trim called a step down. Which works awesome around the lower edges and doesn't fill up with ice and snow.  The trailer lights are all wired up and working. Seeing whats back behind these big trailers always drives me crazy so i bought the ones with reverse lights built in.  The maiden voyage was out into the parking lot and then back into the shop. It didn't fall apart so it was a success.  I took a few pictures of the bending process. It was a pretty simple setup. A big piece of angle aluminum secured between 2 - 2x4's with 2 clamps a bar and a big hammer worked really well. If you're going to do this make sure to add half of the rib height to whatever the measurement you're trying to hit is. And as i mentioned before, buy the length to wrap the house from the front point all the way to the middle of the rear wall.  We would clamp the bar down then hit it with the hammer to "break" the corrugations. Once they were broken it bent extremely easy.  We also got most of the lighting on the inside roughed in. I have 4 110 outlets and 2 USB plug ins for cell phone/misc charging. All of the lighting will run on 12V. I'm no engineer but, each of the lights in the picture draw 240mA so with them all on I'm thinking i'll get about 30 hours of run time on one battery. There will be 2 batteries for lighting and USB and a separate one for the heater so I should be ok for a weekend "off the grid". I'll have a generator as well to run the TV and other goodies which can charge the batteries as well.  I also picked up the material for the interior. Menard's is having their 11% sale until 10/21/17 and also a sale on their 5/16" Cedar tongue and groove. Between the two sales I got the price down to just under $1 per square foot. Apparently, they aren't stocking this specific Cedar anymore so I had to buy 3 different stores out of stock to get all that I needed. In the end I still didn't have enough to do the roof so i bought some Birch plywood to finish that part. I think a lighter ceiling will help the place feel a little bigger anyways. I got antsy last night and finished some of the cedar boards with Natural Finish Watco Danish Oil. It turned out to be the exact look I was going for. From what I've read i think finishing them all before installation is the way to go. Then once everything is up doing a quick coat of Danish to even everything out.  At this point i'm counting the Steps left to go instead of how many I have done! It's getting close to starting the fun part ( the interior). I'll keep everyone posted on the progress! 
    • My bad... How about this?   https://icefishingdeals.com/
    • Yea, I'm not sure when this project is gonna get evicted from the shop area that i'm using so we had to get it weather proof first. Ideally i think the interior first is a better approach. We ran into some issues wiring that would've been easier handling from the outside. 
    • They don't save cap space that is the whole point. The money is still spent. What it allows them to do is go OVER the cap during such time a player is on LTIR. It doesn't give them relief at all, it just allows them to go over the cap. We already have Coyle on LTIR so it wouldn't do any good to add Parise to that. That would mean two moves would have to happen when they are both healthy. The Wild could do that too, but what sense would that make because they would be forced to be compliant once Parise is healthy. Hossa is likely going to be LTIR all year. At this point I doubt Parise will be out that long. Russo did a very good writeup on it last night for TheAthletic. You can also read up on it on CapFriendly.
    • I'm on board with the others, sounds legal to me!  Best of luck hunting! Kettle
    • Was in Joes sporting goods last night and they had the 8" K drill for $219
    • Sounds good to me.
    • It should be as long as the wma butts up to the lake,
    • Great catch for that spot!
