Dawn: is Tracy around?
Franci: playing poker
Jib: playing poke
Franci: She said she would be back later
Franci: but she is winning
Dawn: Ah! Let’s go and distract her
Franci: I guess when she starts losing
Franci: haha

Yes, har har!……actually it was interesting! I did have a good winning streak in the middle of the game, but sort of lost interest in winning towards the end. Despite what some say, I am not very competetive, at least, not consistently so.

One noteworthy hand: I had four fives on the flop, and somewhat inexplicably, Darren, who seldom bluffs, decided to bluff big stakes on that hand, resulting in me winning alot more than expected on that hand.

I also noticed that Darren was rather a chronic short stack for most of the game, despite taking a serious interest in the strategy of the game (he’s been watching alot of games on the internet lately, went to a semi serious cash game recently, and plans to go to the casino over the Christmas holidays). I noticed once again, that when I am on a roll (and defining and recreating that particular ‘roll’ isn’t so easy), that I win often and in unexpected ways. In short, my belief is that it’s fuck-all to do with strategy or consistency or logic. I win more hands and more chips than Darren, when I’m on that ‘roll’, than he does by playing logically and strategically.
