View Full Version : Just in case your wondering who the guy with the Chiefs hat is

I know some of you on this board are poker fans. I recently competed in the main event of the WSOP in Vegas. When I walked into the room on day number one it was announced that my table was the ESPN feature table. They miked me and sat me down with Randy "The dreamcrusher" Jensen (from Colorado, probably a donk fan) and to the left of Phil Hellmuth's empty chair (he hadn't shown up yet as he likes to make grand entrances so he can suck up some TV time) and a bunch of other amateurs.

So here's where I want to tell you guys what happened to me in case you see me getting eliminated on ESPN in 4 weeks or so (while wearing my Chiefs hat) and wonder why I fooked up so badly. The hand I got beat on was a play where I pushed all in with the top two pair against Jensen (who is very loose) on the turn when a two of clubs came he made a flush. I was trying to get a read on Jensen and when the two came I glanced at the board and read it as a spade not as the third club on the board. How can you do that you ask? Well guys, let me say I saw TJ Cloutier do it once on TV and guess what? I thought "What an idiot!!". But let me now tell you from experience, it's a heck of a lot different when your in the chair and your studying your opponents face so hard for a tell with cameras whirring around your head. At that level of poker you only glance at the board because you don't want to miss anything that your opponent might give away by looking at the cards too long.

Ok, I feel better now. I hope my fellow poker playing Chiefs fans will cut me some slack as I feel a little bit like a guy who trained 6 months for a marathon and then sprained his ankle on the third mile. Hopefully ESPN won't show it.

Peace.

I'm kidding. I'm a casual poker player. When I say "casual" I mean that I show up with my nickels and dimes and give them to my friends. It saves me a lot of time and frustration.

Absolutely. I played in one of the other earlier WSOP No Limit events and got 107th out of 1991 players and won $5,400 bucks on a $2,000 buy in. I love the game and can tell you its the best form of competition out there that doesn't require athletic ability. It's kind of like playing golf at a high level (mentally) but without the need for any athleticism.

Thanks for not calling me an asshat as I already have done that to myself about a 1000 times in the past two days.

Good thing the lights are out, so she can't see that it's really Rich Scanlon that's poking her.

ChiefaRoo made a huge flub
too drunk to recognize a club
made an ass of himself on national TV
while wearing his Chiefs hat and goatee.

Great, a CP member who calls a club a spade instead of a spade a spade. Our entire credibility is going in the crapper...

Did you walk around afterwards saying, "Im and Idiot"? hehe.

Better luck next time, I'm sure your family is gonna have fun with that for YEARS.

That's a tough break to make that misread...I can imagine it being quite a bit unnerving to play at that level with the cameras and everything. I dont think I'll ever play live, I dont think I have the 'game' for live play.

Hey, at least you werent the first to go busto, so you got that going for you.

Yeah, the LAST place I would want to be is at the feature table...unless I was in the final 9.

The first guy that busted was out before we even played our first hand.
