Triple Draw? Oh yeah, I remember that...

I haven't played much Triple Draw in the last couple of months. Part of that was due to NaNoWriMo taking up most of November, part of that was... I dunno, really. Every time I jumped on to play poker I ended up wanting to play NLHE tourneys.

Last night I jumped on late - I was going to go to the pub, but I turned on the TV and caught the end of Ocean's 11... so I stayed in and began drinking. After I flamed out of my various tournaments ($30+3 NLHE on Stars, peep token turbo on FT, and the 12k at 1am on FT - going out on the first hand with AA, and yes, I got my money in bad), I decided to play some TD.

Oh. My. Goodness. Granted, the people playing Triple Draw after 1am EST are probably not the best, or soberest, people on the planet, but there was a pile of suck going on. I chipped up nicely on my first table, and despite getting pretty drunk myself started a second table. On the second table I dumped a bunch early, before fighting back. My original table broke, and I sat by myself, hoping others would turn up. Eventually one guy did... and boy, was he bad. I took the first three hands off him, and in response he reloaded.

Note the sober discussion occurring in the chat window.

Sadly he left after 5 minutes after having dumped $40 to me. Too bad: by my calculations it would have taken almost 7 days straight of playing for me to get the rest off him, and even then the possibility existed that he might have sobered up or even learned the rules. But I think this was the one that got away.
