His celebration was actually a bit sedate compared to some of the ones I have been witness to at this particular poker room. He just kinda jumped and went "Wow, a full house" (in french) when the king hit. Sick part was I was still counting my call out when the dealer flipped the river so the only reason I knew I was losing was his little dance in the seat. %-6

That's bruta. The stakes you play for (at least based on that hand) are a bit higher than mine (after all, I'm a broke college kid), so I've never lost a hand quite that big, but I definitely know the feeling. Honestly, I would much rather lose a hand because I played it badly than because of luck. If I misplay a hand, I can learn from it and use the info to beat the guy next time I'm in a hand with him, but getting unlucky just leaves a really annoying hopeless feeling.

Yup, not soccer. :-D


Rename this cafe the "Fantasy American Football Cafe" then. ;-)

I just have to revisit this. I think it's kinda funny that our brothers across the pond like to bash us for calling "the most popular sport in the world" soccer. Like us Americans are responsible for the term "soccer" and renamed the sport. I hate to break it to all you "football" purists but the word soccer originated in England and happens to be a synonym for football. In fact the term soccer has been used to describe the sport for as long as the term football has. If you wanna be condescending and snooty about how we Yanks hijacked the term football you might wanna look in the mirror, I'm pretty sure rugby football came first. :-D

And before you ask, yes I just read an article about the origins of the term soccer. :-B

Actually, I'm an etymologist, and the word soccer actually comes from the root succor meaning 'to suck.'

1- Getting a guy to shove $300 on the turn when I have him dominated only to have him hit his 3-outer on the river and shipping my $600+ pot to him (Texas Hold'Em poker live) (my AQ against his KQ on a Q-10-4-Q board - K on river)

2 - When the same guy jumps up and down in his seat while stacking my chips as I seethe beside him

3 - When my buddy tries to make me feel better by pointing out that I'm "only down $60" since 80% of my loss in the hand came from what was previously profit - I don't %$&ing care! I should have been up 5 C-notes!

</rant off>


ouch...i have a bad habit in live games of telling people "nice hand" after i took down a big heads up pot. one of my buddies told me i should only say that when i lose

3 Things I hate...about TV/movies:

1) i When someone wants to knock someone out, it always only takes one hit.
2) In a foot chase, the person being chased always falls down.
3) When the bad guy is killed near the end, he miraculously comes back to life 2 minutes later for one last chance to kill the good guy.

4) When the guns have limitless ammo on full auto
5) when anyone racks their weapon right before shooting someone (you ^*%*&%(&^ it's already supposed to have a round chambered!!!!!)
6) When police or anyone hold the pistol in their hands pointing the barrel towards the ceiling. THAT ISN'T HOW YOU SAFELY HOLD A GUN!!

I always laugh when someone pulls their gun out before a gunfight and pops the clip out to make sure it's loaded. Like you really wouldn't know your gun is loaded. :-b

...when someone shoots Superman, he stands invincible and lets the bullets bounce off his chest, but when the gun is empty and they throw it at him, he ducks??? :-?
