You Know You've Seen It All When...

I got a text from one of our good friends and poker buddies yesterday. He's in the US right now and is of course checking out the tables and playing poker. Here is the message in it's entirety:

" Hey dude, it's Ram. (Perty to most- mav) In a $120 tourny, had 88 vs JT suited. Flop QQ8. I flopped a boat! He bluff bets, i called. Turn was 9, giving him the straight. Perfect! He bet big, i raised most of his chips, he called. River was... 8! I had QUADS! We tossed the rest of our chips in and HE WON! The last 8 gave him a straight flush! An hour later they tell me that hand wouldve won me a $70K jackpot in the casino. Odds.. 2.5 million to one. Fuck. Now i've seen it all."

Sick huh? hehe. Quads beaten by straight flush. In a tournament too. No bad beat jackpots to be won. Well, That's poker! We signed up for this. hehe.


I will now stop talking about my bad beats...

correction: he didnt text me pala, i got a message that was FORWARDED to me by a mutual friend from Ram. hehe.

ouch talaga hehe.

sorry, he didnt text me pala, my friend forwarded his message to me hehe. i just read it again eh.

Quote of the Day

  • The best poker I've ever played has always entailed peace. A relaxed comfort. Eyes open, ears open, radar up. Absorbing my opponent's every message. Taking them as they come. Not mixing what those messages are with what I want them to be. It's like an aerial view. A view from above the myriad luck-dependent reactions of those many people who never gain such a peace. And when you gain that view, that peace - when you'd rather have the truth, no matter how disappointing, over a false hope, no matter how desirable - then you're a player. The hand you're on slips into a stream of thousands of other hands, no one of which, because of your lofty view, seems unduly important, no false fearful emotions rise within you. When you gain the peace of lofty perspective, you're a player, and when you're a player, you're free.- from "King of a Small World" by Rick Benett
