You know the sports series "Outside the Lines"? I figured I'd start a thread that shows the people behind the stacks. Outside the Stacks. A couple pics from my Saturday game. I prepared 2 pounds of steak tips and made a low sauce chili (I know beans mean its not real chili but just roll with this). I was doing okay until about 6am, when Frank (Asian guy) and I played heads up PLO and this hand happened:

Flop: J75

His holdings: J789
My holdings: J568 :eek:

We get it all in, run it 2x. 7K first board, 6x second board for his nutty straight. The good news is that he owns a dry cleaning business and he took several garments of mine until we meet again next week. So, $1400 pot but I'm getting dry cleaning, so I have that going for me. Went to bed, woke up at 9am, zombied out all day. PCA chips used, broke open the decks I bought from HQ at Courages DCS 3 last year. Beat of the night was my poor nephew who just turned 21 (he's the skinny kid at the far end of the table). He has KK on a x222x board, jams the river and I show A2 for him to go batshit crazy. He plays bad and texted me the next day that he got his paycheck and wants to play again lol. His father, to his right, is my brother and I had to put the smack down that he can't play here anymore. I can't contribute to raising young degenerates in the family.

Guy in red shirt is me with SOCKS aka JoseRijo to my right, whom I made a terribad bluff to during the night. To the left of Frank is IBetOnEverything. We did not play dirty socks once all night. Mostly holdem with some PLO later.

Nice, this a 1/2 game?
It's a .25/.50 game uncapped. Usually we have 2 tables, one circus and one for super casual player. Some of the usual suspects (Berg, Chicken, GrumpCatMalaka) couldn't make it and some people bailed last minute so we had one table that wasn't too aggro. I swear no one was up or down more than $100 for many hours so it played casual. Once everyone was gone Frank and I played bigger (1/2).

Good idea for thread. Like the setup, expected basement. Frank got you in a cooler.

Very nice.

Something that caught my eye, is that beam supposed to look like that? Im not a builder/engineer, just wouldnt want it to fall and damage your poker chips and table :)

The entire post and beam wood was cured in a building for 9 months after it was cut before installation. It looks like that but its extremely structurally sound. I've had 4 couples simultaneously sex swinging on there and it doesn't even budge. Okay maybe not but its solid. The beam itself does not support all, as its connected to a Y structure that connects the other beams. That is not official structure engineering talk.

I assume then that you consider PBR "good" or even "beer"?
I drank that shit when it was all I could afford and I embraced the "quantity over quality" philosophy. Fuck that.

I've recently have gotten into a few of the IPA's. I like Bell's Two Hearted Ale, Goose Island Endless IPA, or even Sam Adams Rebel IPA. Don't get me wrong. I won't turn down a solid Pale Ale either (just not into wheat beers, but again, I won't turn down a good one).

Actually, my preferred drink is Don Julio "Anejo". That just doesn't fit my budget to drink on a regular basis (or even semi regular basis, lol).

I am the dude with the PBR. I like mostly any beer, just not the sweet/spiced stuff so much. Bill hosts a great game!

I'm not a fan of the spiced beers either. Jason gave me a Winter Ale that was horrible.

I usually make more money at your games than mine. Its awesome that we have a group of 3 or 4 guys that are willing to host.

And, if I can ever finagle my way down to Ypsi, I will bring a box of Big Rock Brewing's Traditional Ale for the host. Yummy goodness . . .

love the compound chipes. need to see the old mspaint of the above photo and resulting t-shirt.
damn, found the thread here, but the mspaint is gone to internet graveyard :(
Ask and you shall receive. Chippers who didn't attend did all this. Trav eventually made T-Shirts of the initial MSPaint portrait.

Couple pano's from the last game. My China Clay quarters were in transit so we used host's dice chips as quarters. It was tolerable.
