J-Dawg And His Stack Of Many Colors

We had seven runners show at J-Dawgs for the poker extravaganza and a little barbecue.

Bobby Dee brought the food, chopped brisket sandwiches, with some deer sausage links and a few chips on the side. Good stuff!

J-Dawg started fast and never looked back, finishing the night as the big winner. Sporting a large and colorful  chip stack, he cashed out with a $43 profit in our $20 buy-in, dealer's choice limit game.

Due to my superior poker skills, I had managed to turn my $20 starting stack into $1 in the first 2 1/2 hours of play. Then I got hot! J-Dawg and I split a hand of Pai Gow, with JD winning the two card hand with ace high, and I won the five card hand with trip sixes. A couple hands later I won a nice pot in an Omaha High game, boating up on the turn (aces full of kings) and ended up winning the High Hand Jackpot, beating Bobby Dee's aces full of jacks. Nice.

I also split another hand of Pai Gow when I hit my flush to take down half the pot. Ray-Ray won the two card hand with a pair of threes.

Because of my rush of cards in the last half hour of play, I was able to get unstuck and walked away with a $1 profit, plus a piece of sausage for the road : ) I guess I'll need to get with the Neophyte for some advise on how to invest my windfall!

Ray-Ray won a little over $20, Stamps broke even, Ollie the Accountant lost about ten bucks, and both Bobby Dee and Dealer Larry took it on the chin for about $25 each.

Tonight is the second monthly tournament of our Vegas Or Bust Poker League, so expect a post on how it went this weekend.

Till next time, win the flips!


  1. GL in the Vegas Or Bust League game tonight!

  2. I enjoy reading about fun little games like this.
    My main goal is that once I get back into my house to start hosting a few friends once or twice a month with a fun little game full of pizza and beer and bragging rights.

    Looking forward to the next post!

  3. Thanks MOJO.

    Thanks grrouchie. We always have a good time. Usually the smack talk is more entertaining than the poker!

  4. We'll have to carefully put together a plan to invest that massive windfall Lucki. Nice comeback.
