Grumpy & Grrouchie & Prudence....Oh My!

Wow, what a night.  I don't have time to go into details, but it was one helluva a poker session tonite, what with Poker Grump, Grrouchie, and Prudence all at the same poker table. Three bloggers and the effervescent Ms. Prudence all at the same poker game?  Needless to say, hilarity ensued.   For now, I can just tease the inevitable marathon blog post that will eventually be produced from this epic night.  You see, I had never met Mr. Grump before, and it was indeed a pleasure to finally not only meet him but actually play some poker with him.  As with grrouchie, I found he is very much misnamed....not at all the Grump he would like you to believe he is. He is a very nice guy and I look forward to many more meetings and poker sessions with him, where hopefully he won't take too much of my money.

Some of the topics from tonite that will be blogged about (eventually):

Prudence pointing out to me a woman with the largest breasts (and most cleavage) in the history of poker players.  Seriously, this gal makes Jennifer Tilly look prepubescent.   What was funny and what was not discussed tonite was that earlier in the day, I had seen a stunning looking female poker dealer who pretty much had the largest breasts I'd ever seen on a poker dealer, who was actually dealing with plenty of exposed cleavage. A cleavage-exposing poker dealer? Definitely a trend I'd like to see continue.

Grump demonstrating to us personally the power of his favorite hand, the mighty deuce-four.

Josie's breasts and cleavage, which were indeed discussed, although we did not discuss Josie.

The upcoming TBC poker tournaments to take place in Vegas next month, which will be held with our without Tony himself....again, although we did not discuss Tony himself.

Me, playing the worst poker I've played in the past three years.  Seriously, I was a total donkey tonite. Apparently I couldn't handle the "pressure" of playing with both Grump and grrouchie, and I just collapsed under said pressure.  I literally handed grrouchie my entire $200 stack at one point early, and he didn't even thank me for it.  Probably the worst played hand in my life.  It was not only costly, it was extremely embarrassing.  Somehow, I eventually recovered and ended up a little bit ahead for the nite, finally managing to play a few hands correctly without just spewing chips all over the place.

Prudence, somehow managing to go the entire evening without talking about her vagina....or anyone else's vagina, for that matter.  She didn't say the word one time the entire evening, possibly a record for her.

Grrouchie, playing poker like he was illegitimate son of Phil Ivey and Jennifer Harman.  The man was totally on fire, and I'm pretty sure he won every single pot he entered.  I believe he left with at least $200,000 in winnings.  (IRS, please take note)

I just pray I can remember the other highlights of the evening. 

Poker Grump has already posted his version of the night here.

And part one of grrouchie's take can be found here.

And part two of grrouchie's take is now here

And....now the full story of this nite of poker has been told here and here.

  1. Sounds like you guys had fun playing together. I'm still planning a trip in early December and hope to meet as many of the poker blogosphere as possible. Oh...and it looks like Grump outed your BSC.

    1. Thanks, JT, hope to see you then.

      Are you gonna bring your own piano? Some of the poker sessions I've had lately could benefit from some musical accompaniment.

    2. Now that airlines are charging like $30 for carry ons, imagine what the baggage fee would be for a piano.

  2. And after you read rob's REAL version....

    So, the thing is there are not 2 sides to every story. There are, indeed, 3 sides to every story.

    Rob's, Grump's and the Truth!

    I'll be working on it but I've got some other stuff on my plate and thus don't know how quickly it can happen

    1. There's at least FIVE versions.....yours, mine, Grump's, Prudence's and the truth, the last of which will probably never be fully known!

    2. Prudence's version includes more swearing than the rest.

    3. Not when I get the part where you stacked me,it won't.

  3. Prudence didn't talk dirty? We have come to expect more from her. Was she not drinking last night? Also, where was Carmel? You would think that Grouchie would have Carmel in his cheering section.

    And yes, I am looking forward to more details on that monumental poker session. Get to work on it Rob.

    1. Anony, I didn't say Prudence didn't "talk dirty", I just said that she didn't discuss her (or anyone else's) twat. Although the word "twat" did come up last nite, but someone other than Prudence spoke it.

      But, Anony, it was Prudence who jabbed me in the side and said, "Rob, big breast alert" when the girl mentioned in my post--the largest breasted poker player in captivity--walked by her. I almost missed seeing her (because I rarely notice such things, as you know) but dear Ol' Prudence saved the day.

      Any woman who points out another woman's tits to me is truly a friend for life.

  4. My silence was due to the unfortunate beatings I took all night. AQ, QQ, JJ, KQ in the small blinds approximately 15 times during the session, all of them beat. Only made my money back through a couple of miracle hands. (turning boats with 55 and 33) Weird night. Never felt like I paid so many people off before. And by so many people I meant Grouchy and Grumpy. I felt like Dopey.

    1. You were not silent....well maybe, by YOUR standards you were! And I noticed you were not consuming adult beverages, so that explains a lot. But I'm sure I can remember a notable quote or two when I concentrate and try to wipe the memory of my early, horrific poker play from my mind.

      As for feeling Dopey, get in line behind me! I know you tried to stop me from funding the grrouchie retirement fund, but next time, try to be less subtle. I think we need a "safe" word. Try shouting "BOSOMS!!!" at the top of your lungs next time.

      Do love the 7 Dwarfs reference, so we need to get enough bloggers together to have 7. But then you won't be Dopey, you'd have to be Snow White! How's that for a concept?

  5. You guys were sooo lucky I wasn't at the felt. Sounds like a great time!!! Can't wait to join you next month.

    1. Yeah, you could have battled grrouchie for the winner in the battle to take the most money from Rob! But I would have loved to have you there, even if it had cost me even more moola. I mean, the one consolation for me as grrouchie was stacking my next mortgage payement was...."well, at least I'm getting a good blog post for my money!"

      I would kill to sit down at a poker table right between you and Prudence! With Grump and grrouchie on either side of us. And having boatloads of alcohol being consumed.....

    2. I don't know you but I'm down for a Josie sandwich anytime. (Bust me with deuce-four off though and you might taste a knuckle sandwich.)

      Delete
    3. Don't worry abut the deuce-four with Josie, that's Grump's hand.

      Josie loves the Jack-10, so watch out for that.

      Also, she likes to distract guys with her cleavage, but I would assume that won't work with you, unless there's something about you you haven't already told me (which I doubt).

      Looking forward to breast sightings and vagina mentionings tonite. Speaking of which, I love, love, love the link with your name this time! Awesome.

  6. Ah ha, there is a Prudence... :) So grrouchie, two famous poker-playing parents, dating Jennifer Grey - very nice... ;)

    1. Lol. Who are these famous poker playing parents you speak of?

    2. On futher reflection, I'm thinking grrouchie is the bastard child of Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun, Coach.

      Jennifer GREY was in Dirty Dancing, Coach, and the thought of grrouchie dancing is mind-numbing,and the thought of him DIRTY dancing is a visual that makes me want to hurl. I think you meant Jennifer GAY.

    3. He meant grey.
      Also, I like those attributed parents rob.
      I might have to keep track of the sweet things people say to or about me.

      Delete
    4. Shit, you really are dating Jennifer Grey? You must be having the time of your life!

    5. Yeah - you know me - I love Patrick's Swazey's sloppy seconds!!!

    6. Pissing on a dead man's grave, man, that's almost as bad as stacking me......

  7. Perhaps Grouchie is better than you at poker and just owned you? You may be good against the normal 1/2 crowd but perhaps you ran into some sharks? heh.
