*Of course we didn't play strip poker.
There were 8 of us last night playing HIGH stakes Texas hold 'em, and lets just say I was the only one drinking water, and I was the first to LOSE HIS SHIRT. I guess I have a reckless style? I sorta believe the best in every 2 and 5 card that comes my way, and ALSO believe firmly that the other players are full of crapola and they cannot POSSIBLY be raising because they have a good hand, they are always bluffing. I should work on my strategy and mentality.
My missus here plays brilliantly. There was one point when she had most of the chips on the table, and then she got the PAIR OF ACES and won a huge hand.....and then the dude on her left twiddling his thumbs, me, started to advise, and that was UNWISE and Terri Anne here, our host with the secretive smile, cleaned us both out.

Hell.....we lost 3 dollars each.....we won't be buying Grey Poupon this week....
Sing it Kenny.....
