Beer, brewing and poker, with possibly some inane drivel on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Scenario:

You're on the button and dealt Das Hiltons Sisters. 3 people limp in front of you, and instinctively you raise it 5 times the big blind. You get 3 callers; the big blind, UTG+2 and UTG+3. The flop comes out 3-4-7, rainbow. It's checked around, and you make a pot sized bet of about $7. Big blind raises all-in for around $50, UTG+2 folds, and UTG+3 calls that for the rest of his stack, about $40.

There's no way you can't call this. You call. The BB turns over 99, and UTG+3 turns over...46s. Really? Was he kidding? Sadly, no. He called a raise with that, and put all of his chips in the middle with a pair of 4's. Nice!

The turn brought another 7, and as the river is being dealt, you scream HIGH CARD, MOTHERFUCKER! at the sceen. As you know, screaming helps. The screen listens and gives you an ace of diamonds on the river. You drag a $100 pot.

What a way to end the night after people had been cracking your premium pairs all afternoon, wouldn't you say?

I've been playing this game for over a year now, and it still amazes me how damn bipolar it really can be.
