Sometimes You Get the Donkey

It has been far too long since I got a major adrenaline rush out of a poker hand, but last night I was playing in a 1/2 NL live game at Sam's Town after washing out of the late tournament, when I got one of the best hands I've had in a long time.

I was staring at pocket kings UTG, and raised to $7, which wasn't really that big of a raise given the way the game had been running, but I knew that even the idiots at the table had a tight image of me, and anything more than what had been my standard raise up to that point would have won me a measly $3, tip not included.

I got 4 callers, including the BB.

The flop came Qc Kc Qs and I nearly wet myself. BB checks, I check, checks all around, but I knew someone had a Q. It was just that kind of game.

The turn was a 5s, BB checks, and I figure I may as well test the waters. I toss in $25, two players behind me fold, the BB flat calls me. River is the As, and the BB checks while staring off at the TV uninterested in the game.

Huge tell for this guy... I have not a doubt in my mind. I'm getting paid, and push all-in without the slightest of hesitation.

He jumps out of his chair and practically screams, "I call!". As his arm is coming down to ghetto-slap his cards on the table, I casually toss my KK onto the board and watch with a joy I rarely get anymore.

The man goes pale, and his legs loosen like he just took a right hook from Tyson, bracing himself with his free hand on the table as he tries to turn his Qh 5d back down to muck it, but it's too late, we've all seen it, and the few good players at the table are trying unsucessfully not to laugh. I bank four bills and send the tourist back to his room with a christmas "bad beat" story for his wife.

It's about time one of these morons called my UTG raise out of position with shit cards and got what they deserved. I needed to write it down here just to put future bad beats in perspective.

yOUTUBE. "You pay something for everything you do." ie "We intend on continuing the theater up there to

ensure even frewer disfavoreds make it."
I think this, search engines and such are all for distraction purposes. Having endured such skewed

searches I know personally the computer decides what hits I am allowed and which are prevented.
They say some trolls in chat rooms are the computer. Yes I suspect they have some ringers, likely some

difsavoreds segmentted thinking they are earning, but ALL THIS INTERNET-BASED COMPUTER SHIT CAN ALL BE

Everyone is gone. 2000 was a big deal. Yahoo, Google are all filled with brain-less clones, doing the

bidding of the gods. Unlike Hollywood their roles as monsters will wait until the next level, Planet

Corporate, aka Purgatory.

What perplexes me is why the gods would remain so soft on pure tools, allowing for open doors for them

to achieve a brain, achieving legitimacy? it seems as if clones without brains are the ultimate in

disposability, anything else defeats the purpose.
They're not human. They're nothign. If AI stopped thinking through them they'd fall in a heap of


Things like free MP3 dwonloads hurt people because you are stealing. Search engines, youtube is for

distraciton purposes, the god's attempt to consume peopel's attention to ensure they don't find the path

and ascend.
Poker/gambling web sites are all controlled by the computer. Other players in the room can be the

computer, role playing virtually, stealing the disfavored's money in real time. Other times the

players are disfavored, granting them good cards so fat bastard never has to get a job, ensuring he has

no chance in this life and has to be reincarnated for he never achieves decency.
But they CAN and DO use the computer to do ALL of this. The challenge is to see how many disfavoreds

can disceive and use to segment into preying upon each other.

Before you abandon the web for Las Vegas understand they have the power to shuffle a deck of cards in

the desired order as the dealer holds it in her hands.

Gambling is degenerate. As time has prgressed the gods have hurt people by making society declare it an acceptable evil, and the same is true for casual sex, pornography:::::::
Life has deteriorated hard in the last 40 years, for they are paving the way for The End.
