Non poker players do not understand this, so I thought I would vent here.
Like in the movie, my wife is a total cooler.
If she does not want me to play I might as well throw my money in the street. I will get the worst cards and the baddest beats. It will be a miserable night of cards.
If my wife thinks I've been playing too long she will say, "Are you going to be playing much longer?" I might as well hit the post and fold button. I will be out in a few hands. I can't understand it, or explain it, that's the way it is.
If I'm out playing in a live game and she thinks I'm out a little too late, she will call and ask me. "How much longer will you be?" I know I'm done. My 2 pr will be beaten by trips, my nuts flush draw wil not hit.
Tonight was no different. I was in a NL MTT with 38 players. I make the final table, wrestle the chip lead off of Derry Irish. We get down to 5 players and the cooler comes over and says, "Are you going to me much longer? I need you to get tomatoes."
I know what's next. Derry take the chip lead back, then he flops a flush and I catch a pair. Well I'm out in 4th place. Now I'm off to the produce stand to get those tomatoes.
She must have a voodoo doll....
