Pokerpalooza and ESPN
We had seven runners show for our Tuesday Pokerpalooza at the Duck Blind last night. Farmer Harry brought pizza and M2 baked chocolate chip cookies for our gang, so no one went home hungry.
Seated from left to right on your radio dial were Glass Man, Farmer Harry, J-Dawg, Stamps, Bobby Dee, Dealer Larry, and moi.
One player who was not there was Ray-Ray, who was scoring a volleyball match between Baylor and Texas. The match was televised by ESPN-U, so we spent a lot of time trying to find Ray-Ray on the boob tube. It wasn't until the very end of the telecast that his mug flashed across the screen for his 15 seconds of fame. Did you see him?
Once again I was the big winner on the night, almost doubling my money in this $20 buy in, dealer's choice limit game. I was able to win the High Hand Jackpot again with a full house, kings over nines. J-Dawg and Stamps both took home an extra $10, with Harry and Bobby breaking even. Dealer Larry and Glass Man both took it on the chin and limped home with lighter wallets.
We'll have our game again next Tuesday, but after that we'll skip a couple weeks. The local fair begins a week from Friday and most of our poker players are members of the local Lions Club, which has a "Wheel of Fortune" game there. The game is one of their largest fundraisers and involves a lot of man hours by the members, so we figured we wouldn't be able to get enough players together for a decent game.
So, we're taking a break.
Till next time, win the flips.
