OKIE-VEGAS storms the Riverwind

I had the distinct pleasure and honor of meeting several bloggers for the first time last night for a freindley little game of 1/2 NL at Riverwind Casino in Norman OK. This distinguished tabled included the following:

tripjax in the 1 seat
Several different poor souls in the 2 seat
yours truly in the 3 seat
Gary Carson in the 4 seat
Im23skidoo in the 5 seat
GCox25 in the 6 seat
Maudie in the 7 seat
surflexus in the 8 seat
katitude in the 9 seat



So here is the breakdown of the game by the numbers



1 - was what table we were playing at

2 - the number of times sets lost at the show down, once the dreaded set over set, second time the dreaded gutshot suckout

3 - the number of people that I doulbled up at one point or another

4 - thenumber of poor souls that sat down with us then left a lot lighter in the Bank Roll

5 - the number of times the hammer dragged the pot

6 - the number of stacks TripJax had after played his KK on the button to perfection against my 1010 in the BB on 786 flop

7 - the number of times I heard SO CO referenced to

8 - the number of dealers that we had

9 - the number of times the word Donkey was used



1000 - the laughs heard and memories created



Have a great weekend and I leave you with this, the next time you sit down at the felt I hope, no I wish that you find this guy sitting there as well.




This picture is real - not doctored in any way and was taken by a Transportation Supervisor for a company that delivers building materials for 84 Lumber. While the plywood and 2X4's are fairly obvious, what you can't see is the back seat, which contains - are you ready for this? 10 bags of concrete @ 80 lbs. each. They estimated the load weight at 3000 lbs. Both back tires exploded, the wheels bent and the rear shocks were driven through the floorboard.

I appreciate you playing poker with us, but moreso, I was damn glad to meet you.
