The Rush Continues

6 MAR 07

Got right into 10/20 and doubled up. It was a very tight table and I was able to push it around with ease. Well, until one Crazy Asian decided to call my river bluff with Jack-high – and it was good! It was perhaps one of the best calls I’ve ever seen. My job was to figure out – was he really that good, or just curious?

One of my favorite Doyle Brunson quotes:

“He may go home broke, but he won’t go home curious.”

It turns out he was just the curious type. I had most of his money within the next half hour. The following hand helped.

I raise from early position with J 10 of diamonds. Crazy Asian just calls. Flop is Q 9 of diamonds for the open-ended straight-flush draw. Check, check and the turn brings the King of diamonds. I think I pooped. I announce to the table, “I can NOT bet this hand.” Remember, there is a bad beat jackpot at the ‘shoot that is sitting at $130,000. If he somehow has a set (and didn’t raise?) and quads up on the river, I take home ¼ of that jackpot.

Anyway, after my basically telling the entire table exactly what I had, he bets! I just call. The river is a blank, so I bet out. He calls and I show my king-high straight flush. It’s good for the high hand, but get this – there were two other King-high straight flushes, so I only got $67!

I’m freerolling now, so when they call me for 20/40, I’m in. Talk about a contrast of styles. 20/40 is the biggest game running, and so all the players are the usual 50/100 guys. 4 to 6 players in every hand and most pots were three bet or capped. I went from super loose to Captain Squeeky. From the big blind I call one raise into a 6 way pot with pocket threes. The flop is J 3 3. Damn right – I flopped quads! Unfortunately, this was not a super aggressive hand, so I ONLY made $400. I still got one non-believer to call me to the river.

So, I flopped quads and hit a straight flush within two hours. Of course, I bought a lottery ticket. Mega Millions stands to be the largest lottery drawing in history. It’s today and the jackpot currently sits at $355 million. They are doing the drawing in Times Square.

I can’t lose.

yOUTUBE. "You pay something for everything you do." ie "We intend on continuing the theater up there to ensure even frewer disfavoreds make it."
I think this, search engines and such are all for distraction purposes. Having endured such skewed searches I know personally the computer decides what hits I am allowed and which are prevented.
They say some trolls in chat rooms are the computer. Yes I suspect they have some ringers, likely some difsavoreds segmentted thinking they are earning, but ALL THIS INTERNET-BASED COMPUTER SHIT CAN ALL BE DONE BY ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE.
Everyone is gone. 2000 was a big deal. Yahoo, Google are all filled with brain-less clones, doing the bidding of the gods. Unlike Hollywood their roles as monsters will wait until the next level, Planet Corporate, aka Purgatory.

What perplexes me is why the gods would remain so soft on pure tools, allowing for open doors for them to achieve a brain, achieving legitimacy? it seems as if clones without brains are the ultimate in disposability, anything else defeats the purpose.
They're not human. They're nothign. If AI stopped thinking through them they'd fall in a heap of flesh.

Things like free MP3 dwonloads hurt people because you are stealing. Search engines, youtube is for distraciton purposes, the god's attempt to consume peopel's attention to ensure they don't find the path and ascend.
Poker/gambling web sites are all controlled by the computer. Other players in the room can be the computer, role playing virtually, stealing the disfavored's money in real time. Other times the players are disfavored, granting them good cards so fat bastard never has to get a job, ensuring he has no chance in this life and has to be reincarnated for he never achieves decency.
But they CAN and DO use the computer to do ALL of this. The challenge is to see how many disfavoreds can disceive and use to segment into preying upon each other.


Before you abandon the web for Las Vegas understand they have the power to shuffle a deck of cards in the desired order as the dealer holds it in her hands.

Gambling is degenerate. As time has prgressed it has become an acceptable evil, but so has casual sex.
Life has deteriorated hard in the last 40 years, for they are paving the way for The End.

Oh yeah...the best tune of all time, the theme from Close Encounters Of The Third Kind! Which, coincidentally enough, was playing in my head the entire time i was reading the blurb from Mr. Anonymous. Who is SO confident about his position that he has to hide under the name "Anonymous".

At least this time the diatribe doesn't me to surf through pages and pages and pages . . . same theme - less women are evil or whatever the last theme was - just more "computer rules your life".

Man, people need to get a job. But he's right babe - you're a degenerate gambler. Good thing you have a good day job.
