Kick me

OK, the next time I say something like "Eh, it didn't matter that I didn't bet the nuts on the river -- I wasn't going to get anything more out of him anyway", please kick me.

I don't know why I've picked right now to realize that this is such a dumb/ROTty thing to say, but I did. And consequently, I've given you the right to kick me.

Now, carry on.

Ted Forrest is next in line then.

And you can throw Joe in the mix too though he only had the second nuts on the JJ6 5 Q board but he would only be losing to the absolutely worst played pocket Queens in the world.

I also should have bet my Fives full of Eights that I caught on the river against Ryan on Friday but I checked for some reason and let him get off for free.

It is a WSOP rule to prevent anyone holding the nuts from checking on the river if they are last to act. A rule which is supposed to prevent collusion. A totally silly rule in my opinion. If someone is soft playing someone else then they picked the worst possible scenario to do so. The player with the nuts is going to have to bet and the other person is going to fold especially if they are in full collusion and know what each other has. In fact checking it down and seeing a showdown is going to prevent collusion more readily than that rule is.

Silly silly rule.

I am 99% sure I yell at you every time you say that.

You have now been upgraded to a kick in the knee.
