  • The Fish Who Could Not Fold

    I'll tell you a story of a fishy so bold.
    You can raise and raise but he will not fold.

    He possesses a knowledge I will never know.
    He can foresee the two outer about to flow.

    Five bets, ten bets.He will not fold.
    He is absolutely sure his pocket tens will hold.

    There's a king on the board.But he knows he's good.
    Somehow it makes sense in his neighbourhood.

    He will not fold. He's all-in on the flop.
    I know for a fact. My pocket Aces are top.

    And now here we sit. Awaiting the turn.
    There it is. It's a ten. Can you feel the burn?

    An Ace on the river is all I need.
    Besides, it just happened for this bad seed.

    Alas, it turns over. There is no luck.
    This is where. At the top of my lungs. I scream.......k.

    Don't get me wrong. I don't wish him dead.
    But if it were a live game. He'd have no teeth in his head!

    So if he calls your big raises. Don't be so bold.
    You could just be dealing with.......
    The fish who could not fold!!!

    I think I need to take a break for a spell. It's been too many days of this in a row.
    I may play the league games and just give my now very small bankroll a break. I can't decide.

    There was a young fish from Tallinn
    Who did nothing but go all-in
    And though he missed the flop
    And he turned a full stop
    The river still gave him a win

      We could/should do a poker school poetry/limerick competition, c/shouldn't we?
      3 tickets awarded?
      Is it a bad-eye-deer?

        After losing six times with pocket aces that caught the third to a maniac drawing to the inside straight, I'm going to frame that poem. Never were truer words written.

        As to the contest, sounds like a great idea to relieve a bit of the tension. The old hedgehog hates poetry, (writing it, that is), but I just might join such a competition. No prize required since I'm an American.

          there once was a fish who played holdem,
          who's mommy told him never to foldem.
          if you got bottom pair,
          or just bluffing with air,
          you'll catch up by the river, she toldem

              Let's try a tourney one....
              ... hmm... not easy...

              A zesty young district attorney
              went and tried his luck in a tourney
              He shoved it all in
              But much to his chagrin
              He was promptly sent on a return journey

                  No rhymes with roomik...

                  A spoilsport called R17
                  just posted so he could be seen
                  killing everyone's fun
                  but in the long run
                  he just ended up being obscene

                      Gay old F. Scott, in his gloom,
                      took a lesbian up to his room,
                      they argued all night,
                      as to who had the right,
                      to do what, and with which, and to whom!

                          my poem.

                          Poker Poetry

                          I once knew an old stock broker,
                          and he asked me if I played poker.
                          I said OF COURSE,
                          and taught him some HORSE.
                          He bought me a stock,
                          and said it would rock,
                          he called me his hero,
                          my stock hit zero.
                          and that was the end of my stock.
