Steem Poker Dreaming

I don't know if you guys have heard of or even played at lucksacks.com. This is the site and host of the poker tournaments for the Steem Poker League (SPL). This amazing league is one of the best communities that Steem has to offer.

Ran by @tuck-fheman and his righteous friend @bigpchef, SPL has taken off and become one of those things that you must at least try once.

But today I have a story, one that is partially true and partially me full of shit. Which is quite often these days it seems. Or maybe people just tell me this to satisfy their shit taking need.

But anyways today was the weekly Sunday 50 SBD SPL tourney where our teams compete in a league that lasts 8 weeks. @bethalea, @blackvapor and I are part of Team Epic. We are the current champions after winning season 2. Should have won Season 1 but Level 5 cheated (wink wink).

So today Team Epic is dominating and all and I was in first for a while. I was hitting and couldn't be stopped. Then I hit a wall. Not a Trump wall, but one that is actually real. A wall made of crappy draws and bad bluffs that just kept costing me my chips. This kept happening until I was so short stacked that there wasn't anything left in this world that could save me.

Then this is what I saw...

I must have been in a dream or something. All of Team Epic was on the final table. Blacky dominating with over 47k in chips, @bethalea with over 37k and me with 1 million. OMG this is the most absolutely amazing thing that could happen.

Currently Team Epic is far back in the leader boards after one week. Though it wont take much to get back into the mix.... Like how today is looking ^^^

So then I cleared my eyes and looked again... This is what I saw....

and realized that I wasnt winning at all. I found the 50 SBD Sunday table and this is what it looked like....

THE DREAM WAS OVER
Back to reality....

Thank you to the SPL for keeping the dream alive and the fun endless.

Steem Poker Today

If you have been around a while with SPL you would remember Poker Today. If so you remember what we had. I have been talking to a few people and we think it is time to bring it back. We will be re-branding and trying to find some quality posters. Let me know if you are interested.

Images representing lucksacks.com poker tables were created by @nicnas and he takes all credit for how amazing and beautiful they are. Any lawyers, especially family members of the offended, may contact him at (555)suck-this

Dry DraIming Is AmAzing.

SPL is one of the best things here at steemit. Except when I go all in on a full house and @nicnas calls with the same damn hand! Good game tonight my friend.

That was another dream/nightmare of mine tonight. Forgot about that one. That was a nice hand too. A8. 88A on the board. What are the odds that we both has that same hand. Crazy. Just glad it was you.

I figured you had an ace or maybe an eight. I was already counting the chips when wham, kick in the nuts. I haven't played well the last few tournaments and that kind of luck ain't helping.

I felt the same way. Absolutely did not think you were gonna have anything close to what you did. Rofl I was already garbing them too.

Dem playas got some skills.

My Uncle is drawing up papers to send to you for use of my websites appearance in your profit making images.

I hope you understand that I wasn't claiming ownership of the image, but of the whole damn site...

I'm having the papers updated to reflect this ... you're just digging your own grave with all these forensics I'm doing on the blockchain.

Is this Bernie? Why are you using so many alts to attack me. Namaste, Jesus Fucking Loves You.
