Bandits and Biatches

In 2005, I started a thread at twoplustwo where regulars posted the players to whom they won and lost the most. After a few million hands on the Winning Poker Network, here are my top three Bandits and Biatches. Bandits: 1. Heavypaella (This guy has been destroying me at an alarming pace.) 2. QIGONG 3. Oscarmck Biatches: 1. phillypie 2. n0ts0graci0us1ndefeat 3. mbolt1 (I ran like god against poor Matt.)

I started whooping, and my 10-year old son came running in the office, “What Dad! Was it the bbj!? Was it the bbj!?” #warpedchildhood The amount I won was just over what I owed on my family’s vehicle. The fun part about paying the vehicle off: I won an extra $2k on top of the bbj amount through the interest savings. I just made … Continue reading All-Wheel Drive Bad Beat Jackpot

I Can Sense Your Top Pair…

Villain’s line below is among the most entertaining lines I see. Every time I see the “minbet/call, minbet/call, minbet/stack”, my mind wanders to Star Wars Episode 3. *********************************************************** *** HOLE CARDS *** MamaCoolJ: dealt [Kc Kh] SiLingPhan: folds bigal1944: calls $0.25 Ahnutz: calls $0.25 MamaCoolJ: raises $1.25 NAVYCHIEFRET: folds Xclusiv1: folds bigal1944: calls $1 Ahnutz: calls $1 *** FLOP *** [Kd 5d Ah] bigal1944: bets $0.25 Ahnutz: folds MamaCoolJ: raises $1.25 bigal1944: calls $1 *** TURN *** [Kd 5d Ah] [Qd] bigal1944: bets $0.25 MamaCoolJ: raises $4 bigal1944: calls $3.75 *** RIVER *** [Kd 5d Ah] [Qd] [9c] bigal1944: bets … Continue reading I Can Sense Your Top Pair…
