January 16th, 2010: Nine Players Jump In For Guts Poker
We may have to change the name of the game to Stud Poker if this continues, as all nine “player” today were guys! These studs (Paul D, Rob J and his son Bill, Larry C, Mike D, Matt G, Eric B, John “The Urbanator” and Our Man Dan B) went after it, and when the dust settled, Eric and John each held Royal Flushes (any time you get a “double” — same exact card, as we use several decks — you may play the double card as a Wild card). So, we had Sudden Death: each cut to a card, with the high card winning the $9 pot and a 373 calorie Paleo Kit. And Eric and John each drew a 4! So we had a second Sudden Death scenario; at this point, all you could hear was heavy breathing, as people were still in recovery mode. Eric stepped up and drew a Jack…and the unflappable Urbanator drew………. an Ace, and collected the pot, yet again.
