I was at a local 1/2 game with a sizeable stack and the guy next to me had ordered some greasy chicken wings which had just arrived mid hand, as the flop came down. I had aces on the button and it folded around to me where he defended in the big blind. The wings came and to my surprise this guy started eating them right away, greasing up his cards as he checked to me and looked at what he had. Of course I made a continuation bed and as he bit into his first wing he casually called. Turn came and really changed nothing, he calls my second bet. At this point the pot is about $85 and I check the river to him. This entire time he has not put down the chicken wings, and I am about to ask for a wash, literally his cards are a mess. To make things worse he casually makes an overbet while sipping his drink. About $100 into a pot of $85. At his point I am half tilted that this guy can't wait 5 seconds before eating his wings, and the other half wondering why he is so casual. I end up making the call and he turns over a set of Deuces that he flopped. No doubt, well played by him... seriously though m8, can we get a wash on those cards?
Chris Bond: Good singer, good dancer, adequate poker player.
Attending my first year at university in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Taking things slow with school but so far so good. As far as poker goes, I am playing micro stakes occasionally, but not profitably yet overall this year. Short terms goal is to avoid playing while tilted. Also could eliminate leaks by avoiding playing after coming home from the bar. I would like to get out to play some $1/2 at one of the local casinos sometime during November. Online poker is love hate with me, seems like I remember the bad days more than I remember the good, which is something I wanna work on. I feel like my game could improve but I've learned a ton since January, which is why I want to work on my confidence playing big pots live. If I end up making the trip out in November, I will be sure to post about how it goes!
