Its been awhile since I finished on the positive side of things in a poker game, cash or tourney.

I got back from PA on SUN. and headed to the local Bowling Alley where I have been fairly successful. I bought in for 100, cashed for something like 160. I played for 3 hours, was pretty much card dead. I made most of my money on two bluffs.

I played again tonight. This time for 2.5 hours. Bought in for 100 again, cashed out for 180. I know its not much, but damn its nice to leave with money in your pocket.

In the first 90 minutes I flopped two straights, and trips. All garbage cards. The table enjoyed seeing the flop cheap, and I took advantage of it.

I should have left with 230, but chased a flush/straight on the last hand. It cost me 50 bucks.

SUN. night when I was playing it was probably the best table I have seen there. I think there were 4 of us that knew what we were doing. Two of them were kids (early 20's) who loved to analyze hands. I think they were both in college, math kids. Spitting out all kinds of numbers and percentages and stuff. I like playing the "math guys". If you screw with their numbers you can take down some pots. I unfortunately didn't get many opportunities.

On the button, I look down at  kclubs jspades. It had limped to me (1/2 blinds). The other three players and two more all limped. I don't really like this hand, but I feel its time to do something. I had been folding for awhile. I make it 10 bucks. . The two Blinds fold (which I expected, they were very tight players). The three other solid players call, the other two fold. Its a 4 way pot with about 50 bucks in it.

The flop brings  kspades 8spades 2spades. It checks to me. I had seen a guy in the hand check raise twice with the nuts, or close to it. This board is offering up a big hand. I check. In hindsight, prolly a bad play, but its what I did.

The Turn brings a low red card. It checks to me again. Now I have to bet, and think I have the best hand. I throw out $40's. It folds around and I take the pot.

The two math kids spit out what they think I had. They were both wrong of course. For the next two hands they were haggling a side bet to find out what I had. They agree to a side bet on my hole cards. Then they ask me, what did you have, we have a bet on it. I of course, trying to oblige, state "whats in it for me". They absolutely looked baffled. The one kids says he will pay me a dollar. I inform him that my rate to show my cards is 10% of the pot, $5's is close enough. He asks the other kid to pay half, and they could see my cards. I corrected him and say 5 bucks a piece, lol...........The rest of the table busted out laughing. I never told them.

30 minutes later I push some guy out of a pot with ace high, he asks what I had, I flip my cards up. The two math kids damn near went into an uproar. Asked why I showed him and not them. I simply said because I liked this guy better.

Sounds like you had a great time! Congrats on your win too!

1) In God we trust, all others must pay cash.
2) Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway.

Sorry to resurrect an old thread since I'm not sure if that's taboo around here (is it?) but I have to say that this is great.  I love that they were surprised you wanted something out of the deal. :D

Northern Suburbs...12 Mile & Woodward area.

I'm taking my son to Slows next Month (before a Tigers game).

Nice!  I've never been there before a game, but every time I have been there, it's been packed.

I've never hosted, sorry.  I'm not against the idea, but I don't have any poker equipment other than the standard '400 chip WSOP dice' chips and a few decks of cards...I don't even have a fold-up table cover!   :P

hot wife/GF?

The hot GF recently became the hot wife, but no pics.   ;)
