The Poker Gods can kiss my ass!!! Literally the instant yesterday's post went up, I went into a 6 buy-in downswing over 6K hands that was just mind-numbing - my graph was a straight line going down. Like nothing I did was right - no preflop shoves, no value bets, no bluffs, etc. Aagh!
But it inspired me to write this primer on the poker gods, as many of you may not be students of poker mythology.
POKER GODS 101
Oddsin. The Father of all Gods. He sits on his throne on Mt Doom and surveys all with his evil eye, making sure doom and gloom is spread across the poker land. "Odds" is the supreme power in poker.
Flippa Twins - PreFlippa and PostFlippa. Oddsin spent countless hours raising the twins and grooming them to be the next generation of leaders in poker land. Oddsin's pride and joy. Well, at least until PreFlippa kept telling him his belly was soft. Good thing there's a spare to that heir.
Oversetta. The only daughter of Oddsin and Coola, she takes joy in turning the most common powerful hand into crap. Coola spent countless years honing her daughter's powers. Oversetta also spends quite a bit of time with her step-siblings, the Runna Twins, perfecting what she calls her "two outer" and the even more powerful "one outer."
CardDeadius. Gay brother of Oddsin. Every family has one and the poker gods are not immune. Strangely, CardDeadius is not flamboyant - he just sits around and does nothing all day. Nothing!!! Rumor is... he suffers from a horrible case of E.D. and has a problem with unsatisfactory flops.
Your Poker Gods... breaking mouses and keyboards across the poker community.
I wonder what could be behind so much evil power... who stands to profit?
