Re: 2017 ustakes NC, where the steaks are wafer thin (Low Content Thread)

So far informal polling has it split like 40/40/20% BAL, LACHRG, 49ers.

BAL was kind of my thought but putting faith in Joe Flacco is a little scary. Rams resting all skill starters is intriguing, but idk if I’m putting too much faith in the 49ers blow out win last week.

Tried to offer chop, other guy who reads 2p2 sometimes wasn’t having it.

What Stars is doing w/ their play money games (huge rake and constant promos to buy chips) is ok, pure rape, but real money games? The Horror. Srsly, though some ppl must be spending a lot.

I go for coffee every morning and they happened to be filming a commercial the other day. They even put it up on youtube:

No, I never got my cut; they said they had to use it to pay for washing that guy's car.

Lots of fumbles and improvisation and double stops and triple stops and triplets and even some 7/16 time for fun mixed in. Why? cus I can.

It's almost time for a new NC/LC thread, how exciting! I've been thinking of possible new names, here's where I'm at:

uStakes NC, where the steaks are bacon-wrapped scallops
uStakes NC, where the bacon-wrapped scallops are wafer thin
uStakes NC 2018, in which DougL plays The Live Pokers

Can you guess what I'm serving for dinner on New Year's Eve this year?

Well - my three month run good finally ended with a
-40BB debacle on Friday. Oh well - bound to happen eventually. It was a pretty amazing run though. Only two losing sessions out of 27 and +400BB.

Cue doom switch.

Played once or twice last year, but not that likely as a regular thing.

Maybe, might have to see it to be certain.

I remember starting with 1000 playchips back in like 2014 and running that **** up to 10 mirrion before getting overzealous and dumping the majority of it.

Good times.

Absolutely. Overzealous in play chips has a totally different meaning though. Let's be real.

Don't knock it. It beats talking about politics, religion, or sportsball.

I haven't had Ripple in 50 years. I think that I'll try ordering it at Talking Stick and see what happens.
