Hammer Practice

So, I was meant to be getting ready for Vegas. But then came my peers. With the pressuring. So like the strong-willed guy I am, I naturally folded like a fluffy Excalibur towel.

On the bright side, this hand occurred. And yes, it's a hand history.

I just wish I had the presence of mind to take a screenshot...

And as a coda, one of the peer-pressurers ended up with all my chips. Coincidence? ;)

  • Oh my god! You're a horrible Blogger -- you posted a hand history, and should be burned at the stake!

    Lol. Awesome hand history. Awesome post.
