No poker today - except a small house game!

House games: the arena where poker is first introduced to most, a much more relaxed atmosphere than any casino out there, and a place where friends come together to enjoy each others company. But the company itself simply isn't enough, in house games you'll see the most creative plays come out of even the most amateur of players, a desire to prove ones self superior to the others, and just the sheer enjoyment of the game of poker.

Today after work, we played a small house game at a friend's place, a small sit n' go tournament with a 10 dollar buy-in. The atmosphere relaxed, and everyone settling into the game, we all shared our stories for the day and didn't take the game too seriously, for it was mostly a good excuse to hang out and catch up. In a very manly way.

I end up busting out of the tournament in this hand, where I flop quad-aces, the action ends up with me slow-playing this monster, and my opponent drawing into a royal flush. And as it was a house game, that got rubbed in by everyone for the rest of the drunken night. Well there's always another day to play, and maybe I could put in a couple good sessions at the casino this week!
