In the Heat of the Night

Welcome back

aside from being a very good movie, it sums up last nights antics. Sorry about that.

Sorry Dale.

(hopefully he treated my comment with the contempt it deserved and trashed it)

A hot night in more ways than one, obviously. In the run up to the big hand, I was keeping an eye on how many people were playing. It crept up to just North of 400k players. Wow. I don't remember there ever being that many players, even pre Black Friday.

Amazing what a single $100,000 hand can do.

As it turned out, the fatal hand fell on the second lowest buy-in stars offers, a 2c/5c table. I was playing 2/5c but sadly, not of the NLHE variety, lol. Close, but no banana !
The guy who won the hand walked away with $103,800 .. pretty unbelievable for a $5 buy-in. The five other guys at the table also won some bonus money .... a cool $13,000 each.
I didn't realise it but apparently every other player, who was playing the same game at the same stake, would also get a bonus.
Seems that there were close to 9,500 players playing 2c/5c NLHE .. who picked up an average bonus of $85 each. That's a lot of players "winning" 17 buy-ins in the space of time it takes to deal one hand of NLHE.
And I bet its never happened before, that 9500 players can tell their buddies "hey, I won 17 buy-in's last night !"

The more you dig into the numbers, the more amazing this promotion becomes.

Speaking of numbers. Literally 10 minutes after the milestone hand was dealt, the player pool dropped to a paltry 140,000 or so. I was also one of the dropouts. After beating myself up at the virtual felt, I really couldn't play another hand. Can you say "burnout" ?

I'll leave you with the following link. Now, I know the Dutch are pretty liberal .. but perhaps there should be a law against this sort of thing ....

NOT lolcats at all

run it twice, that fucking 100 odd promotion, sychophantic arse kissing, i (almost) give up, door closed .. another one opens up ?

welcome back

not a whole lot to report ....

another high stakes player said "run it twice, always on ! gives the fish less chance" .... so I duly complied, set it to on, and the first (ie one and fucking only) time I've seen it in action .... I got fucking run over .. not once, but twice .... fuck :(

(and as "luck" would have it, it was at a table I should NOT have been playing .. good game bankroll manager, sigh. .... sometimes ?? I'm such a fucking retarded degen, sigh)

and onto that fucking promotion . 100 hands or what the fuck ever .. for the record .. I did play it .. for the record .. I.GOT.FUCKING.DESTROYED.

yup, all the little fishy people who decided to invade my pond .. they fucking hit everything. Of course, I could just have been playing like a cunt, hey ho.

So, the bankroll is pretty much fucking destroyed, sigh. Yup, I know, my fault, but still .. sigh :(

For my sins, I did watch the "big" hand .. bunch of fkn donks who, obv, were just shoving it and preying, lol. I don't blame them, I would have done the same thing. What really ripped my fucking knitting was the totally OTT comments by the "online pro's" .... get a fucking grip Dale, you cunt, the big prize of $100k is not, yes I repeat NOT, life fucking changing money .... it's only 64k this side of the fucking pond which wont even buy you a ONE bedroom flat , ffs.

on the plus side, it's two or three years salary, if you have a fucking brain, lol.

I know you guys have to kiss ass, but really ????  (sorry Dale, but you came across as a cock sucking arse kisser)

and onto doors .... after a fucking lifetime working on the railway .. I packed it in .. took an offer from my company and as of 21st June I'll be fucking unemployed. Scary shit, I've been working for three fucking decades, ugh.

prop bet .... how long before the Mrs decides that rather than be under her feet, I'd be much better under the fucking patio ????

any suggestions for my future ?

pleasant dreams
