Just a piddly nickel-dine NLHE 6-max game on slot onlain, there’s a couple guys with $10+ in front of them, so I buy in for the max, $10. I’m chipping up here and there, manage to felt 3 short stacks, 2 of whom are quickly replaced. One sticks around, sitting out, taking up a seat like a douchebag.
I make a horrible read on the other big stack who has me covered, and lay a wicked beat on him. On a 5/10 NL 6-max table, I’ve run $10 to $36 in 15 minutes. To his credit, he never said a word.
The douchebag sitter-outer does.
HeMakesMeHappy: hahahah u suckout bytch
I let it go, the button moves around a bit before I respond…
BigSlickNut: you still here?
BigSlickNut: kinda pathetic
HeMakesMeHappy: bigslick fag-got”
HeMakesMeHappy: that rolled talkig to u u fooknig homo
I have no earthly idea what he was trying to say…
HeMakesMeHappy: way to suckout fag-got
And finally, here is why you don’t talk trash at the table, especially with someone playing as shitty as I was:
BigSlickNut: so long happy, I’m gonna enjoy your money most of all
And I left with a stack that was more than twice the combined stacks of all other players at the table. Bet that guy I laid that wicked beat on wasn’t too pleased with ole Happy.
Oh, by the way, tag HeMakesMeHappy. He played horribly. If you care to play nickel-dine poker. Meanwhile, Happy and the other dwarves just paid for me to play in this:
The best time to rant
Here it is, almost 11 pm on Saturday night, so nobody will read this before I post again and get it off the top of the blog…
If someone explains to you how you can make $XYZ with a blog and you say ‘cool, I’d like to get in on that’, you should understand that it doesn’t happen unless you like to WRITE!! None of the people I know that are making money from their blogs started their blogs to make money – they just wanted to write about shit, and yeah, maybe get a few people to read it and appreciate it, even if it was just crap about their latest bad-beat or their newborn or bad-beating their newborn… wait a minute, that didn’t come out right…
Anyway, y’all know what I mean. Plus, you kinda have to do it for a LONG time before you can even think about making money (unless you’re a complete whore like me who has written 30+ paid posts on my diet blog, in which case you can start in only 90 days, but even THAT is too much work, apparently…). Oh yeah, you also have to like to READ other bloggers and have the basic social skills to go along with your WRITING to get a link back to your blog so you get ranked high enough in the search engines for anyone to give a crap about paying you for what started as a labor of love.
It’s just like the real world. Nobody’s gonna GIVE you anything. You have to WORK for it.
Can I get an AMEN from the congregation?
