M3 vs the 5.0
I ran down to Tampa today to play some poker.
A red M3 came up behind me fairly quick. I stepped down a bit and got to about 85 and then planted the right foot. By about 125 I had 3-4 cars on him. In fairness he might not have been quite ready I thought.
I let him pass and slowed back to 80 and he did the same. I got behind him and he planted it. I followed and by about 105-110 I had closed the gap from about 6 cars to about 2-1/2 cars and he let off.
He gave me a big thumbs up out the window.
Made me feel good to run a bit faster than a serious car like that. I don't think it was modded at all. It was the newest body style.
Trip to Tampa and back, 50% highway, 40% rural highway with 60 mph limits and a couple two lane passes, and 10% city driving, I averaged 25.8 mpg. I run about 10 over the limit.
Oh, Texas hold em. I won $435 for 3 hours of playing.
2nd hand I got an Ace 3 suited. The flop was (2) aces and a 3. I checked and didn't bet. Then the turn card was a Jack and a guy bet 15 a couple people followed. I raised it to 30 and everyone hung in.
The river was the most beautiful sight to see, an ace.
I went all in and two others with jacks followed thinking the full house was the big dog hand. Lots of gasps when the 4 aces popped up.
I played for another 3 hours without any exceptional hands and made another $100 or so from them. Good time for sure.
