September 2007 Ramblings

It really is amazing what you come across in the poker world these days. I was dealing tonight, was expecting to get of at about 12:30 AM, but noooooooo. The inevitable occurred. To of the most moronic poker players decided to play a few hands heads up. I will not say any names to protect the idiots, I mean innocent!
One player was a newer player that went through one of my old students dealer school. Basically he has the itch and doesn't know when to quit. I don't think he even made it through the class.
The other player was just a stone cold donkey, who donates when he comes in, and always stiffs the dealers.
It's pretty sad when you have to prompt for blinds and control the action in a HEADS UP game! So, I just gave in, and they figured it out on there own.
Now, my co-worker and I are probably the two fastest dealers on staff, so what the hell, rake the shit out of the game. Not once did they ask for a rake reduction, or commented on where the chips were going.
Player one started out with 280 in chips, player two with just around 200. Once player two went bust, an hour and fifteen minutes later, player one cashed out for 250. Yes, we raked 230...some tips from player 2, in 1:15! They both didn't have a clue, and it was actually fun taking that much money in rake for the house, as the poker room has been a bit slow lately.
Just thought I would share with you guys, hope you like my story!

I have started school again so my days of entering every small buy in tourny Full Tilt runs during the day are over. I hope I will have the chance to play some tourneys during the weekends but I may not be on much other than a few live games here with some friends, and the weekly free tournament the poker "club" runs. Hopefully fall break gets here soon so I can waste away a few days making final tables again (the term again used kind of loosely lol)....good luck anyone who happens to read this.
