Man, I love cocaine.
Oh wait, not that white stuff. SNOW! We’ve got four inches already since this afternoon (okay, since three hours ago) and it’s still coming down at a fairly steady clip. The mountain’s supposed to get several more FEET.
I’m beginning to think I’ll never play disc golf again.
So I played a 9-person game online. In the first 40 hands, I had exactly 4 hands where I had two cards that were higher than 8. I mean, crap cards after crap cards. I finally go all in with Q7 because, well, why not? Everyone folds. Next hand, I get AK suited. Great. I go all in again (by this time, I didn’t have many chips) Someone calls with crap. And of course they win.
So I’m out. NO NOT QUITE! I have 30 chips (we started with 1500). I am automatically all-in. I triple up with two pair (I had K 2). Next hand, all my 90 chips in again. I manage to win again. I’m up to 450 chips. Next hand, all in again. I have 3 3. They hold up. I’m suddenly up to over 2000 chips. A few hands later, I win a big pot and I’m suddenly in the lead (still rarely getting an actual good hand). Remember, my best hand of the day, AK suited, lost.
So finally there are four left and I’m the chip leader. Someone goes all in with crap and I have KQ suited. Well guess what, it loses. So I’m still in it, but they only pay top 3 so I just have to last.
I get 9s! The best hand I’ve had so far. The chipleader raises from 500 to 1500. I just call instead of pushing all in (I have about 3000). The flop comes 5 5 4. I go all in, figuring his raise meant he had high crap. He turns them over. High crap. But OF COURSE the turn comes up with a club giving him a flush.
I went from 30 chips to 5000+ in about 8 hands, and then lost whenever I had actual good cards.
Strange game indeed.
