I have Bravo Poker Live Ap for my phone. It shows what games and wait lists are at all casinos that employ that system. I noticed Hollywood had a 1/3 game going at 8 am Monday morning. This is unusual for Hollywood. I decided to go check it out. A table at this time of day usually means it has been going all night. I arrive twenty five minutes later. As I approach the front desk of the poker room, I notice a gentleman cashing out for over $1100. First inkling that my theory is correct. Yhe pit boss confirms the game has been on all night. I buy in for $200. I get to pick either the 4 or 5 seat. I prefer 1 or 10. I take the five. I check the stacks. It looks more like a 2/5 table than a 1/3. It becomes clear what is going on. The three seat is driving the action. He is blind raising randomly from all positions. He is getting lots of action and getting paid off. The three seat seems like he is drunk. That is impressive since since last call was seven hours ago I sit and play fold. The table fills up. The one tset folds and I move there. The five seat was card dead. The three seat announces all in blind while the cards get in the air. He apologizes in advance for the slow roll He has $600 or so in front. One guy calls and loses $200 with his KQ. Three seat spikes a 5 on the river to make his 9 5 good. We play a round. Again the three seat announces all in the blind and appologizes for the slow roll. The under the gun player has just sat down. It is his first hand. He asks if this is for real. We assure him this is his normal play. The new guy says he has a pair so he has to call. The next gentleman immediately says call. I then look at my hand to see KK. I am on the button. It was almost dread that hit me then. I knew I had to cal. I was almost ensured to be ahead, but I did not relish seeing a flop four handed. I called my $270. The new guy started calling for a low board while the dealer made the pot right. The three seat and the other guy an myself sat silent. The rest of the table leaned in in anticipation. The flop came 6cQc6s. Not bad normally but who know here with two random cards in the three seat. The other guy did not seem happy so pocket queens for him did not seem likely. Burn. The turn brought the oh so lovely King of diamonds. I do not know what the river was. New guy had 88. Other guy had AKos. Three seat had J4os. By far the largest pot I have ever won. I gave a few hundred back, then left after the three seat left.
