  • Ok Children..one badbeat story

    then it's off to bed you go.

    It was in Tunica on a Sunday evening...
    Poker tables almost everywhere were filled and
    the waiting list was long.

    Joybell and I were finally called to a 3-6 holdem
    table at the Gold Strike and found, to our
    surprise and delight, Kaeleine and Idoru99 sitting
    side by side at the very table we were joining.

    In time, conversation turned to appetite and
    we all agreed it was time to eat. The cards continued
    to fly and after awhile Idoru and Kaeleine decided
    they could wait no longer. Joybell would make
    "third man walking" so Idoru and Kaeleine decided they'd
    pick up their chips, revisit the list, kick back and
    totally enjoy their meal. Joybell's chips would stay on the table.

    At about the same moment, a chair became available
    at another 3-6 table. I passed on the dinner invite to move into the vacant chair. Joybell saw someone else leave
    so moved her chips to my new table too. Unfortnately,
    it was too late for Idoru and Kaeleine...their chairs
    were filled again the moment their own butts exitted.

    No big deal to them....hunger pangs took front and center stage. There I sat alone until Holdem 101 tapped me on the shoulder to ask how I was doing. Holdem doesn't gamble on
    Sundays so he was in a socializing mode. We chatted, I folded, we chatted somemore...

    When all of a sudden....out of nowhere came
    much howling and screaming and clapping and cheer!

    The badbeat had hit at the table so near..
    indeed it was at the table where
    Kaeleine and Idora and Joybell and me
    had sat just minutes ago.

    Holdem jumped into Joybell's chair and put out
    a chip from her stack. I was lost having had not a clue.
    What was he doing and why was he seemingly making
    a bet? It was Sunday and holdem does not gamble!!!!

    Nice try said the dealer and all the players too..You're out
    of the payoff so "fageddaboudit" Joybell would remain
    penniless in spite of his attempt.

    Seems anyone playing the same game (3-6) got a piece of
    the Jackpot Badbeat winnings. Of the four PSO players
    who spent the afternoon playing, I was the only one sitting
    at the table when it hit. I collected $147.84 for doing absolutely nothing but being, for once, in the right place,
    at the right time.

    When dinner ended, they all returned to the news....

    now that's a BAD BEAT!!!!!!

    The end.....good night!
Working...
