No stripper, no cry
"She'll come by right after work," the host kept telling us.
I wonder what was worse -- a bunch of guys waiting for a stripper to show up or a bunch of guys waiting for their "A" games to appear.
The only thing that really was stripped was a whole bunch of people's chips -- including mine.
Nearly as soon as Mark and I got there, there were people raising over the top with Q6o ... vs KK. Nice move, sir.
Others would call with 24s and not make a hand. This Asian kid pushed all-in against this guy with no hand at all.
"I'd rather go home broke than go home with $60," he said afterward.
Nice move, sir.
That same spirit sort of came over me as well. I raised a straddle with AJs and then tried to take over the pot with a $50 bet on the flop in early position.
This pipsqueaky player reraised all-in, for about $50 more. I was getting about 5-to-1 on my money and I still had the overcards, so I felt like I had to call.
But he had a set of 9s. Previously Doug and I had seen him push all-in with nothing and AK preflop. I lost another $50 to him later while trying to steal his blinds with 74o. He made his flush on the turn though and quickly let me know he had a hand.
Another guy who did very well with random hands on Monday this time only had about $26 in chips before he busted. When Mark and I showed up, he had more than $600.
"My luck is NO GOOD tonight," he said.
If you count not getting to see the before-promised stripper, then, dude, you're right. Your luck is terrible.
Better luck next time, poker cats.
