Poker [Sep. 21st, 2005|02:15 pm]
Listen in, listen Ian!
I just won 5p this lunchtime, but I should have won more. It went wrong on three hands.

1 - Someone went all in pre-flop for 3750*. I saw him with pocket fives, he showed AK and hit an ace on the flop. I probably shouldn't have called, but I was high stacked. Shoot.

2 - I had a king high straight flush. Even though there were two jacks out on the board, nobody else had much and I got a call but no raise to my testing the water 200 bet. I probably won 1000 on the hand, which is disappointing for the cards.

3 - I forgot what my hole cards were on a hand. I had KQ, and when the flop came down with a jack in I thought "Ooh! Top pair!" I then looked a bit silly on the showdown, when I responded to the other bloke's pocket fives by dramatically flicking my cards over to reveal... fvck all. D'oh!

Now I have to design screens to display data off lots of related tables, being consistent across screens but trying to cram the stuff off each table onto one 80x24 screen. Joy!

*£1 = 1000 chips.

I'd love to play on-line poker, but I think it would be the start of a slippery slope into addiction.

Then you need to come and join verlaine's [tentative] off-line game instead.

I think it was the fact he called quite a big bet with pocket fives. Without knowing how much 3750 was of your stack, he could well have had a higher pocket pair. Pocket fives certainly isn't a bad hand to raise with, though.

Is there anywhere I can get a poker-to-English translation from?
