I'll tell you a story of a fishy so bold.
You can raise and raise but he will not fold.

He possesses a knowledge I will never know.
He can foresee the two outer about to flow.

Five bets, ten bets.He will not fold.
He is absolutely sure his pocket tens will hold.

There's a king on the board.But he knows he's good.
Somehow it makes sense in his neighbourhood.

He will not fold. He's all-in on the flop.
I know for a fact. My pocket Aces are top.

And now here we sit. Awaiting the turn.
There it is. It's a ten. Can you feel the burn?

An Ace on the river is all I need.
Besides, it just happened for this bad seed.

Alas, it turns over. There is no luck.
This is where. At the top of my lungs. I scream.......k.

Don't get me wrong. I don't wish him dead.
But if it were a live game. He'd have no teeth in his head!

So if he calls your big raises. Don't be so bold.
You could just be dealing with.......
The fish who could not fold!!!



I think I need to take a break for a spell. It's been too many days of this in a row.
I may play the league games and just give my now very small bankroll a break. I can't decide.

There was a young fish from Tallinn
Who did nothing but go all-in
And though he missed the flop
And he turned a full stop
The river still gave him a win

We could/should do a poker school poetry/limerick competition, c/shouldn't we?
3 tickets awarded?
Is it a bad-eye-deer?

After losing six times with pocket aces that caught the third to a maniac drawing to the inside straight, I'm going to frame that poem. Never were truer words written.

As to the contest, sounds like a great idea to relieve a bit of the tension. The old hedgehog hates poetry, (writing it, that is), but I just might join such a competition. No prize required since I'm an American.

there once was a fish who played holdem,
who's mommy told him never to foldem.
if you got bottom pair,
or just bluffing with air,
you'll catch up by the river, she toldem

Let's try a tourney one....
... hmm... not easy...

A zesty young district attorney
went and tried his luck in a tourney
He shoved it all in
But much to his chagrin
He was promptly sent on a return journey

There was once a terrible thread
With limericks that shoudnt be read
Its by nerds who play poker
Who have no jokes to broker
I think it should be put to bed

No rhymes with roomik... :(

A spoilsport called R17
just posted so he could be seen
killing everyone's fun
but in the long run
he just ended up being obscene

(don't get me wrong, i liked it, and I know (hope) you weren't serious, but still ;)

I, for one, appreciate the value of good doggerel.

Yes, I have just given you the fancy clap.

Gay old F. Scott, in his gloom,
took a lesbian up to his room,
they argued all night,
as to who had the right,
to do what, and with which, and to whom!

(my personal favorite limerick, written in regards to the rumors of F. Scott Fitzgerald's possible homosexuality)

Poker Poetry

I once knew an old stock broker,
and he asked me if I played poker.
I said OF COURSE,
and taught him some HORSE.
He bought me a stock,
and said it would rock,
he called me his hero,
my stock hit zero.
and that was the end of my stock.

who was crooked as crooked can be.

and that shyt aint funny.
they'd be shot if it was left up to me

The sky was dark, the moon was high;
All alone, just her and I.

Her hair was so soft; her eyes so blue,
I knew just what she wanted to do.

Her skin so soft; her legs so fine,
I ran my fingers down her spine.

I didn't know how, but I tried my best;
I started by placing my hands on her breast.

I remember my fear, my fast beating heart;
But slowly she spread her legs apart.

And when I did it I felt no shame;
All at once the white stuff came.

At last it's all finished; it's all over now,
My first time ever at milking a cow

Ok, 1 more and I'm stopping.
1 DONK
The same table did once sit I,
with 4 pro's, 1 donk, and some guy,
1 donk went all in,
Phil Started to grin,
only 2 words were needed
and PH never heeded,
1 of 2 hit on the turn,
Phil Helmuth started to burn
he went over the table,
this is no fable,
" Laugh my ass off" said Laak
and that was the end of 1 DONK!

mtn thinks FT should be shot,
an opinion that many have got.
But first sell that thing yo,
and return me my roll,
then you all can have at that lot!
