Yeah man - I wish you would have played cards with us dude - we were up till about 5:30 this morning puttin em in the air. Good shit. The very last game was a 3 man tourney - winner take all - 5 minute blinds. A ridiculous game for the fun of it. Think that doesn't stress you out?Quads said:However I'm still on tilt.
On my way home I stopped through The ModFather's garage to check out thier action. Two tables, tourney and cash game. It was rockin' Pebbles and BamBam! (cause that's the way he does it....)
2nd hand I get 99 on the button. I limp in. Poncho raises. BB calls, I call. Flop comes 9 Q 8. I'm GOLDEN. Poncho bets 800 (blinds @ 100/200). BB raised to 1600. I go all-in. Before Poncho could fold, BB calls - turns over 10 J for the nut straight :? All of this took place in the matter of about 14 seconds. It was ridiculously funny. No time to look at the board and see what "could" be out there. Throw in the fatigue factor, and it was a recipe for disaster. We all laughed our ass off for a good 3 minutes (of course pausing the blinds *g*).
Some VERY bad beats over the course of the night. A number of people were steamed up and literally STORMED out of the garage when they got busted out by some bullshit call.
No Limit poker is a funny game - something you can both LOVE and HATE within a matter of a few seconds. I'm REALLY hooked.
