FCPHA: Big Table in the Back


Recommended Posts

Thu, 03 Jul 2008 12:05:17 Doors Open! A bit late, but the doors to the Amazon Room are finally open and players who are registered for Day 1a have started streaming into the room. Tournament Director Jack Effel is announcing certain table redirects (feature table, secondary feature table, etc.) over the PA system, only adding to what is going to very quickly become a mass of confused humanity. Upon arriving at their seats, players will find a bottle of All In energy drink or All In water on the table in front of their stack, and an Everest Poker seat cushion on their chair. Expect it to be a while yet before we get underway.Fuck I want to be there!
I had no idea it started today until you posted earlier. Any estimates of how many will be in it this year?

I'm about to drink wine and eat french fries. Gourmet.edit: Yep...I liked my own post.

Happy Fourth of July to those that celebrate. I have a couple of Angus steaks marinating in K.C.Masterpiece Steakhouse blend as I type. That will go with a shrimp cocktail, twice baked potato and corn

Would a bottle of All In and a seat cushion make you feel better?

Nope, I'll bet it will be closer to 8k like it was two years ago but not a record.

This blows.I have to work today and tomorrow.And it's gonna be fucking amateur night too. Last night after about 7:00, 25% of the people on the boat looked like they'd never been in a casino before.Funny story:I was dealing a $100 min game last night. This goofy looking college kid comes up and sits. Watches a hand or two, then asks me "So can I buy chips from you?" I'm like "Yeah, I'll change your money for chips right here."He lays down a $20 bill. Me - "This is a $100 game."Him - "$100 chips or I have to buy in for $100?"Me - "The minimum bet is $100/hand."Him - "Oh...... Where are the $5 tables?"Me - "You could try O'Shea's in Vegas. I hear their roulette game is easy too."Then his beer arrives and he's all surprised he has to pay for it. He moved over to roulette and played a little on the outside. Later I saw another dealer yell at him for playing red on the inside when someone else was already playing nickels inside. He goes "Man, I suck at casino betting."
Why on earth would you buy in on a 5 dollar table with only a 20 anyway? Find a penny slot machine. I suppose he would have more fun at O'Sheas. 20 bucks buys you a beer pong kit.

Some of the 1/2 NL tables at the dog track here have a $20 buy in. And they will limp in, call a raise to $10 and fold on the flop.

I didn't know Ivan was playing.Thu, 03 Jul 2008 12:47:26 That Was Quick Less than 20 minutes into the first level and we've already had an elimination. The name of the busted player is currently unknown, despite tournament director Jack Effel's best attempts to track him or her down. He or she didn't leave without a story however. The player in question got their money in good holding against the of Rocco Lazazzao. It was looking good through the turn, but Lazazzao spiked a on the river for the win. The busted player quickly vacated the tournament area and while Lazazzao stacked his chips, which now total approximately 42,000.

Dude you fucked up! Face it, you know the rules.Thu, 03 Jul 2008 13:55:26 Our First Bit of Controversy Raymond Rahme and one opponent were in a pot that went to the river. At showdown, the board read Qh4s6h8c8d . Rahme's opponent opened AQs and "queens and eights" was called. Rahme put his cards face down on the table and started sliding them towards the dealer. Just as the dealer took them and put them into the muck, Rahme grabbed one of the cards back and opened it, revealing an eight. He protested that he had trip eights and that the pot was rightfully his. The dealer told him he couldn't win the pot with only one live card, and with his other card in the muck, there was nothing to be done but award the pot to Rahme's opponent. A floor was called, who made the same ruling. A second floor was called, and then an upper-level floor was also summoned to the table. Rahme has been vociferous in his objection that the pot should be his, but we suspect he is going to lose this argument.

Aaron Rodgers is officially my current hero after he said that Packers fans "need to get on board now or keep their mouths shut."
Aaron Rodgers will be holding the Lombardi trophy aloft, victorious after next season's Superbowl.Happy B'day Henry.good evening folks, catching up.

I expect better from you.
I have little sympathy for a man about to go on an Alaskan cruise and party it up.

Nice pics in your blog.
Thank you. Just posted the pictures from the Badlands. I assume that's what you're referring to. My sister just scored us a couple of tickets to the Rox/Marlins game tonight. Left field bleachers, and then passes onto the field for for the fireworks after.

The Badlands are pretty and all, but I can't get enough of the Corn Palace. I may have to make a trip there to see it for myself.
