And The Winner Is

No red carpet.  More like a guy from an alley saying, “Pssttt, hey bud.” to the poker community.   And, not a very sophisticated con either.  You can see the drool and the grab for your wallet is pretty obvious.

Leading the gang waiting to roll us is  everybody’s friend and conscience, the esteemed senior Senator from Nevada, Harry Reid.  You know his genes dictated politics.  The Reid family can’t even spell it right.   Harry the whore — Vegas is known for colorful nicknames — has the same finesse as the past good fellows.  He’s busy in Washington trying to stack the deck in favor of Nevada businesses.  He’s trying to make the Nevada Gaming Commission the nation’s gaming commission. Be still my heart.

After Harry picks our pocket, he’s got a line of casino shills to pass our wallet on to.  MGM, Caesars, Station are scrambling and that’s just the start of the list.   What Total Rewards for all of us.  Damn, my cheek hurts from that tongue jam.   We are about to seem pathetic and look worse than the couple with the walkers wearing their matching satin jackets glowing like the strip casino sign embroidered on their back.  The only one I haven’t seen yet in this group is The Donald.  I wish he would show up with his patented,  “YOU’RE FIRED!”

It may get so bad we want Howard and friends back.  Nahh.  …well maybe.

Full Tilt is back on line.  I downloaded the update and played for a bit.  Not many stud players but I found a table.  The cards were as bad as I remembered.  I looked at my account balance and then made a nice omelet with the goose eggs.   But, the two people I sat down with at the stud table played a fairly sane game.  With the cards and a phone call interfering with a winning hand timing out, I dropped 5-large in phony money.  But, it was more fun than I’ve had at other play money sites so I’ll return today.   Well, at least I won’t have to worry about the variance unless my new backer runs out of play money.  (They left my player points showing.)

Some of you needs to get the old blogger games going again there.  I might even show up for one if I haven’t been cleaned out again at the ring tables.

    You do realize that The Dank (formerly The Mookie) is still played (play money) Wednesday nights at 10pm Eastern on PokerStars? We usually get 3-4 tables at the start. Not exactly the same as the tournaments of old, but still kind of fun.

    “I looked at my account balance and then made a nice omelet with the goose eggs.”

    LOL, good line.

    @Sparky  I don’t have a P* account.  I wanted them to switch who was getting the kickback from my play so that I could play a few quality freerolls.  I had some beggar from another era listed.  They told me they would not give me a new account and would remove my account if I continued trying.  Don’t threaten a cranky old man.


    @Mojo  I liked that one too.  Nothing like resurrecting the oldies.  If they worked in Vaudeville, why not now?
