I tend to think they are more like these guys:

I can get there!



Edit: Flor-a-duh!
To be fair, he was busy making a phone call. Everybody knows that they drive just fine talking on a phone.

Probably never knew he had busted his windshield until after the call was finished.

Took a step away from table to cool down. I was up 1k, now up $250, so good news is still up and the drooler is still here so plenty of opportunities to get paid with interest

Lol good grief. Limp :ks::kd::8d::8s: on the left of rock and a few other limpers, rock pots, I repot to 90.

Doofus who chased flush last hand calls, rock repots all-in for $340

I repot to isolate. We run two full boards, I flop top set on 1st board, he makes a wheel on river

On 2nd board he makes 2 pair 6's and 2's to scoop it lol

I'm somehow STILL up, but Poker Jeezus is fucking with my faith right now. Gotta love the hand this guy played for stacks with

Sorry this is old, I don't read every page and I don't keep up...

I don't admit to knowing the law but I can provide a scenario that happened to me in college (over twenty years ago)...

I was splitting time between playing 7-stud and pai-gow (being the bank every other hand) at Foxwoods for most of the weekend. I don't recall what stakes I was playing but I do recall I had a few thousand in chips in front of me. There were these two guys (around my age) that were in and out of the card room and attached pit area over the weekend. On the second day (maybe third, who knows, it's a casino) I was leaving the casino floor, I think to get something to eat. As I left the floor, these two come up to me and long and short wanted me to give them money to put one of them into action. I laughed in their face, told them to f' off, turned and walked away. At this point one of them (big fat slob) sucker punches me in the side of my head and tells me to give him my chips. I turn around ready to beat this guys ass (fat boy hit like a bitch) and the two clowns scurry away.

I go find casino security to report the incident, they catch the two of them before they get off the property (for those who don't know, Foxwoods is pretty big, lots of entertainment and food in addition to gaming). They take statements from both sides (we were separated with different interviewers) and the long and short of it was everyone was banned from Foxwoods. I asked my interviewer how was it that I was assaulted and almost robbed but I'm getting banned and why was there no legal consequences for Abbot and Costello (other guy was skinny). He flat told me your on an Indian reservation, we make the laws here and I don't know that three of you aren't working together to run some liability scam.

Oh, and they kept all my comp points - The casino ain't your friend.

Big? Foxwoods has its own postal code.

Cool story, shitty outcome. The Encore in Boston has killed Foxwoods's numbers.

I mean, good fucking grief already

See a flop limped, I flop 2nd nuts and pot. Short stack repots to 160 with 100 behind. I don't think he'd do that with 7's full here, so I repot.

He thinks for a bit, then calls. I ask if he goes once or twice, he thinks for awhile and says once

At showdown he shows the 76 and says we have the same hand, not realizing he hit the 3 outer on me when the J hit the turn
