Heart Found a good way to get $harks off your table

Vega$Vic was doing a little Monday night grinding, taking chips off clueless donks, the usual, but I found a nice way to make these tables on the strip even $ofter.

I saw two other regs at the table who are pretty good players. Neither are Vega$Vic caliber, but still decent nonetheless. Now, there were plenty of tourists at the table for me to get money from, but after seeing one of these decent players stack a donk and add more to their $tacks, I decided something had to be done before all the tourist money dried up.

"Pretty good run you're having tonight," I said to them with a big Vega$ grin on my face.
"Yeah, not bad," one of the good players said as he stacked up some chip$.
"Where are you visiting from?" I inquired, my smile growing ever wider.
"Oh...uh...I live here" he responded nervously.
"And you?" I asked the other decent player at the table.
"I live here as well," he said.

"My Goodness! Professionals coming down to steal money from us sucker tourists who are just here to have a good time?" I said with a smile.

One of them was about to say something, but I interrupted him. Taking the toothpick out of my mouth, I looked one of them right in the eyes and said, "Damn. Every time you guys turn over your hands, you've got a set or better under there. If I'm in a hand against you, I'd better be holding the NUT$!!!"

The table engaged in full conversation, many of them realizing that yeah, these two rocks were only playing elite hands. Needless to say, their action was killed, and Vega$Vic was building mountain ranges of tourist chips with all that extra money not going to the tight local rocks.

Just something for all my grinders out there to think about if you're looking a little $timulu$ to your winrate.

I dunno, I don't think LV pros would be so honest if asked directly in that way. More likely they'd say something like, "I'm from Jersey, what's it to you, buddy?"

Entertaining fiction, but not Grade A B/S ;-)

I think you are being kind by labeling it "entertaining fiction"
