MGM - Detroit
I thought this might be a fun thread for the live game players.
I was playing yesterday. A guy comes to our table wearing a skull-cap and sunglasses. He sits down, tells the dealer he will wait until his blind and then demonstratively starts closely watching all of us. When it gets to his blind, he puts his I-Pod earphones in; I swear he was emulating something he saw on T.V. poker.
Anyhow, this guy is bending the ear of the player to his left about strategy when he picks up A
. He bets $10 and gets (5) callers. Pot is $65. Flop comes K
. Aces bets $15 and gets (3) callers. Pot is $110. Turn is 2
Aces bets $20 and gets (2) callers. Pot is $150. River brings 9
AA bets $100
(1) player re-raises all in for $80 more and AA calls and loses to a spade flush.
He then begins to tell the table how ludacris it was for the player to call on the two streets while on a flush draw. He says,
"Do you realize you have only (9) outs and need to have at least 9-1 to be calling in that situation. You know they have books on poker odds and strategy... you should pick one up and quit relying on luck!!"
I almost fell off my seat laughing....
