I remember being part of a baseball team when I was 7. I sucked. I was the worst baseball player on my team, the Giants. I led the league in strikeouts, walks , hit by pitch , stolen bases and had a .000 batting average. Yup .000 . When I actually grounded out the last […]

Has sucked for me so far. But I look forward to the new training I’ve been taking to hit sooner or later. Either or that I go back to being a NIT. So I’m going to play the FMookie (FakeMookie) , The Dank, The Douche, TTFKATM (The Tournament formally known as the Mookie) or the […]

And once again Alcanthang and Full Tilt Poker are absolutely AMAZING! I’ve participated in I think almost all of the BBT series, have been lucky to qualify for the TOC’s and surrounded by very skilled players. I truly believe that if you can win, in our group of friends and donkeys, you will do well […]

Getting slapped in the face..

Instructions on how to get hit in the face with a deck.

Now some of you believe that you have to sit at high levels to have the deck or RNG to slap you silly. I say nay.

Now I just returned to the felt and decided that I needed to have some fun.

A simple, Fergusonesque stay in the bankroll, just want to play poker, game. My goal is to show you how to get hit in the face so many times that you feel like you are a winner no matter how bad you play the game. Now, for time sake I will remove all hands that I wasn’t involved with. But I will show you what I was dealt.

OK Schaubs…
