We had a family breakfast this morning. Then, while my parents and cousins went to look at the animals in the Secret Garden behind the Mirage, I went to play poker.
All that was open was $3-$6. That’s what I used to play, so I sat down. I was in for a rude awakening.
I should have known early on when I caught a good card on the flop. I bet and EVERYONE called – everyone! C’mon, they couldn’t all have good cards.
I lost one big pot when another player caught a flush on his J-4 clubs. Nothing wrong with that, except he went in to see the flop with those two miserable cards even after there had been a bet!
It’s tough to think of worse cards, but he was here to play, not sit.
Bottom line, I gave back $120 and it was painful doing that.
We’re going to drop off Cousin Max (flying home to Orange County) and pick up the rental car in a little while. I’ll write later.
