I was playing poker for fans last night in the 2 dollar room.

    It turns out, you only get fans if you win the showdown. I thought you got fans every time you won. :doh:

    So if you have quads and every folds, No Fans For You.

    So here I am in the 2 dollar room and everyone is checking to the end and never raising and calling if they have a hand. I bet into a lot of losing hands. It's so hard to get a read on players that don't raise.

    Then there's the dilemma, fans or dubs?

    Then Peff shows up and I got to the 50 room with him and he raises like crazy. We trade back and forth but I ran out of time and left down 5k.

    I clean up and get ready for bed and decide let me see if anyone's playing. 20 more minutes.

    I find kimi playing for fans in the 50 room. So I play for a while using my new raise every hand strategy. I was up around 2k and my time was almost up again. Then I landed a decent hand. I had 2 pair on the flop A9. So I go all in hoping to win back the 5k I lost to Peff. My opponent shows 2 pair K9 and I'm like YES! Then a K falls on the river. Fuck Me. I was left with 3k. 20 minutes I should have left alone.

    BTW True Grit was pretty good.

    Hey Bo, when in at a Table click on your Av while at the table. You will see a heart towards the bottom. It will show you the hands you have achieved which in effect gives you your "fans".

    I rule.

    Thanks for playing, Hockey. Sorry it was so extreme. Peff is an extreme player.

    I don't really get why you guys play in the 10/20 room if you are betting 1,000 pre-flop. Bro, you are single-handedly ruining my pirate poker experience.

    Just kidding!

    It's the only way I can control the betting. He LOVES to over bet. My best strategy with him is to play a smaller room and coax him to go all in with pockets or something. I won back 10k from him playing the 10/20 room. He went all in twice when I had pockets.

    Going all in the 10k room and losing twice hurts.

    Containment.

    Oh yeah, he won 20k off me. Luckily it wasn't MY 20k. Still pissed me off.

    BTW, Kimi wasn't the one that took my 7k. It was some dude with a weird name. Maybe Kimi will remember. Next time I see her I'll aks her.
