The cold hands and shivering teeth made it hard to bluff several potsâ€¦ During the first break, I heard one of the dealers talkin to a odd player that wasn’t in the tournament
Every Wednesday night, our friends and I go downtown to the poker room to play in the $300 Texas Hold’em no-limit tournament. My friends and I have been playing in this particular tournament for the past several weeks. I had a couple of finishes in the cash, but I have never been able to get the big prize. My neighbor Jack had a first-place finish more than one weeks ago. The guy is still using his winnings from that tournament to play cards. There were almost a hundred people that day and the first arena prize was over $5,000, last Wednesday night there was a stereo event held at the same time as the $300 tournament. The poker room was unusually packed with people. The arena is constantly busy, but there was hardly any room to stand. Since there were a ton of people inside, the a/cs were working overtime. The pit boss must have turned the thermostat down to 60 degrees, because the indoor air temperatures were cold and freezing. I was wearing a lightweight jacket with a hood and I could believe our teeth chattering. The cold hands and shivering teeth made it hard to bluff several potsâ€¦ During the first break, I heard one of the dealers talkin to a odd player that wasn’t in the tournament. The contractor told that person that the A/C method had been broken all day. Since they had more than one big events that night, they decided to wait until after the arena was closed to repair the a/c problem. It really changed our strategy and gameplay.
