The Poker Table

The Poker Table
(A man sits alone at a table, idly shuffling a deck of cards. A visor casts a green shadow on his face from the solitary overhead lamp. Next to him, a small glass of three ice cubes and a double shot of apple juice slowly drips onto the green felt of the table. He looks up, and a slight smile causes a subtle twitch of his moustache.)

Howdy pardners, fine day for a game, innit? Have yourselves a seat and ol' Rusty'll deal you in. Ferst hunnert chips are free.



(A leaflet falls out of his vest pocket. On it are printed the rankings of poker hands.)

RE: The Poker Table
Whoever has the best cards wins the pot, it's that simple!

You'll need to put 5 chips in the pot to join in on a hand. You get two cards dealt, then everyone can either raise (increase the bet), call (match the bet), or fold (throw in your cards). After 24 hours, anyone not called will automatically fold.

After that, three cards are laid out on the table, and there's another betting round. Then a fourth, then a fifth. Once everything's settled, the pot goes to whoever has the best cards combining their hand with the open cards. A triple beats a pair beats a high card, and the mightiest hand is a royal flush.

I reckon we'll need a couple more folks joinin in before we can start.

(I absentmindedly flick a 5-chip towards the pot. It ricochets off a presumably-there chip, and slides to a stop a couple centimeters too far. The chip that it bounced off of is nudged.)
There's my ante.

RE: The Poker Table
Hold up, you've got to match the bet of 100 chips, or fold and duck out of this round. Why not take a look at your cards first?

Like I said, once this round is settled, three cards will be dealt to the table. These are available for everyone to use. Following another betting round, a fourth card is drawn, and eventually a fifth.

You don't have enough chips to raise over the current bet.

10 of Hearts
5 of Diamonds

2 of Spades
4 of Diamonds


- a52 -
0 chips

Schadenfruit of Melons


- kirinMaster -
0 chips ( + 300 )
7 of Diamonds
J of Spades


- Numbers -
0 chips

Looks like kirinMaster is the big winner with a pair of sevens!

RE: The Poker Table
Well, a52, Numbers, you had a good run. Had a nice sit down and a refreshing sip of beverage, but now your luck's run out. Like I said before, the first hundred were free. The second hundred...

Are also free. *If* you ask nicely.
