Sure, I enjoy a solid, friendly poker game now and again. I have some Paulson’s Top Hat & Cane chips (pictured), some KEM playing cards, and a home made poker table to slide those cards across. Always a good time and worth the effort. So, six of us played a quick Texas Hold’em style tourney with a $20 buy-in gets you $1500 in chips. With a standard blind structure and a timer provided by DD Poker, things were off and running. About three hours in, I’d amassed a significant chip lead and only one player threatened as we moved into heads-up action. However, it didn’t take long. A couple of bad decisions later and a cold run of cards, I found myself on the short stack. The killing blow came with the final hand of the night where, on an all-in bet, I showed two pair while my opponent nailed a straight. Tough beat but that is poker.
