Punished by the poker gods

I played in Jay Abiog's weekly poker game for the first time last night. I came in fairly confident -- I mean, I'm not a newbie. I may not win it all, but I can finish top 3, right?

Busted out. First. Both games. How embarrasing. What's worse, I don't think I played any hand wrong. I just slowly watched my chips dwindle as I folded bad hand after bad hand. It was a streak of bad luck as long as Ron Jeremy's ... career.

I think I'll set up a set up a shrine for my pagan god, the Joker, and worship him until next Monday. Please forgive me for whatever sins I have committed against Texas Hold 'Em.
