Poker Memories

Yesterday someone slow rolled me, and it ended up leading me to remember the one time I slow rolled someone, and boy was it good. It was during a trip to Vegas with my friends Mona and Ange. Ange ended up writing about it on our Ottawa poker community forum,, and I wanted to share it... (she is a much more entertaining writer than I am!)

This was just too good not to share with everyone. So, Krissy, Mona and me decide to play the nightly tourney at Caesar's last night. Krissy and I were at the same table from the get go, which in itself was amusing. Krissy ended up getting a little bored (go figure) and decided to grab a copy of bluff magazine and read it inbetween plays. If I could have taken a picture I would have. Krissy three betting and having the word "bluff" in bold letters right below her as she did it.

Anyway, after about an hour. The resident poker "Pro" gets seated at our table. Well, he thought he was a pro because he supposively won 3/5 of these tourneys and apparently teaches poker every Thursday (which, trust me, is good for all of us). At this point he hasn't shut up since he got there. I even gave him a muscle relaxer hoping that it would affect his tongue and give us some quiet, but no luck. About an hour into his constant crap, he starts berating someone about a hand they played (the player min raised to isolate and pushed him out of a hand that he would have won if the player hadn't raised - or something like that). Our very own KrissyB steps in to basically tell him, he's wrong, an idiot and needs to learn poker. The debate got pretty heated and the dealer had to stop them.

Well, it stopped him, but didn't stop Krissy. Little Miss took every shot she could and needled him till I swear the guy was going to burst. And, the new dealer told him that if he didn't stop he was calling the Director. loooool

K so, Mr. Fullofhimselfpokerpro gets himself down to 1675 in chips and the blinds are 300/600. Our Heroine is in the BB. Mr. Pro announces himself all in and it folds to Krissy. Krissy hums and has and asks for a count. The dealer obliges and Mr. Pro is looking pretty happy with himself because he's thinking that he is going to double up from his nemisis. KRissy says "I guess I have to call" and Donkeypro flips over 99 (I guess he waited for his hand). Krissy sits there. And sits there. and sits there. Until the dealer says "Um Miss, you have to flip over your cards"

All sweet and innocent "Oh okay" - AA - was there any doubt?

The table literally roars, Mr. IguarunteeImgoingtowinthis storms out and the whole table thanks Krissy for the entertainment and getting rid of him.

And just in case, you think slow rolling is bad in any situation, even Karma agreed with Krissy. We all monied, but Krissy took it down completely.

Congrats Krissy!

Thanks to Ange for her post! Here is a link to the thread on :

I have to add in, this is totally not typical behavior of me, but this guy was something else!
