Fun On The Felt

Ms. Duck
We got together over at J-Dawg's for his Poker Extravaganza last Wednesday. We usually play on Thursday, but J-Dawg had a softball game, so we moved it up a day.

Ray-Ray brought his father-in-law and he fit right in with the rest of the gang. Bobby Dee built a nice stack early in this $20 buy-in, dealer's choice limit game, but frittered most of it away by the end of the night. Stamps was the big winner on the evening, walking away with a $25 profit. J-Dawg won the High Hand Jackpot with aces full of queens, but still managed to lose a few bucks on the night. Dealer Larry was a winner, along with Ray-Ray and Craig (Ray-Ray's father-in-law).

I lost $6 and Farmer Harry was the biggest bleeder, dropping almost $30. Ouch!


Friday night at Tin Man's $5 NLHE Tourney was a lot of fun. Music Man showed for the first time in a while. Seems he's been working hard on his music degree. Priorities, or some such nonsense.

Ms. Lucki Duck got off to a quick start, taking half of Philly Phanatic's stack when he flopped top pair, which was jacks. Unfortunately for him, Ms. Duck had pocket kings and crippled him early. She managed to hang on to her chips for quite a while before dropping out in fifth.

With blinds up to $25-50, I was down to 1 1/2 BB when I called an all-in from the BB with A-2 offsuit. I hate naked aces and this time was no different, as Joseph tables A-8. An eight on the turn felted me in third and Joseph and Lil' Okie Annie were heads up.

The final hand of the tourney was sick. Both players got it all-in pre-flop with pocket queens. Lil' Okie Annie took the hand and the victory when she rivered a flush. Wow, what a way to lose, but Joseph took it well.

There weren't any huge pots in the $2 buy-in cash game, but I'm proud to tell you that Ms. Duck walked away with a $3 profit. Not exactly a big haul, but it's the first win she's booked in her young career. Way to go dear! And she's starting to feel more comfortable at the table. I can tell because she's starting to talk crap to the other players, much like Very Josie does on the virtual felt. It's a sight to behold. Fun times!

Till next time, win the flips.


  1. Congrats Ms Duck though I don't believe a word your husband says about you talking trash at the poker table.

  2. We may not be very happy with you if you create another version of Josie ...

  3. @ Neo- She wasn't happy when she bet big, thinking her 3 pair was good. The smack-talk started after that hand.

    @ lightning- it's been out of my control since... well, forever.
