Well, I did okay. I ended up $51. I was ahead more than that but the late gaming took me out. Nothing seemed to flop for my good cards and the rest of the time I had middle rank rags that would not straighten.
Peter did really well. He stacked up the racks. I guess he left with about a hundred. He just seemed to be in the groove.
Ed, Phil, Bruce, Ivan, Bill, Jerry, Peter, Greg, Karp and I played. It was a big game.
I don't remember too many hands. They have just slipped away from me. Plenty of good banter and a very nice atmosphere indeed. My best hand was when I flopped a straight but no one saw it. The turn gave both full house and the promise of flush possibilities so I just went all in and hoped for the best. it was a bet of about $60 and it did the job. I held the top end of the possible straights. Everyone folded. I was content as it was already a good sized pot.
Peter beat me about three times with higher kickers and fully enjoyed my refrain of "low kicker" Funny but I remember that from long ago when Mike Karp and I were kidding and he was at an upstairs table here at the house and I was downstairs and he sang the crack from all the way upstairs.
Well, it was a good afternoon. I was a little unnerved playing poker with my back so close to the window and the storm rushing across everywhere with thunder and lightning and enough rain to float a boat.
Greg's take on the game:
T'was a beautiful poker afternoon with lots of rain and 10 players joining the fun. I think the usual suspects made off with the cash and the other 7 of us either broke even or parted with about $350.
Game next Wednesday and every Wednesday in July begins at 1pm. Feel free to come early and enjoy your lunch in the back at the pond.
I haven't been the usual suspect in quite some time :) weekend!
I left up $127.
Greg had a little under 20 chips and went all in. I was the only one left to call with ace 9. Greg didn't want to show what he had until 2 hearts came on the flop, with an ace. the only thing was his 2 hearts in the hole were 3 and 7. Of course the pokermaster rivered me. I was so mad I took all of his money. :)
