“Pranqster Highlights” (Installment #1)

The inspiration for my 2k thread <– limon set a great example set of giving back just cuz…

My go at giving back (on what I thought was my way out)/My long-winded ORIGINAL POST

This guy was chill AF (on 2p2 and in the LA casinos), so I linked his post about me coolering him (also so I can remember what it’s like). I’ll try to be less nostalgic moving forward…

I’ve always stood up to those who are bad for the game. This guy is chill now though- he even gave me a lucky chip the other day (~ a decade after I slow-rolled him to the parking lot)! Amazing cooler, doesn’t seem possible I made hands like this- even though I remember it now…

YOUR BOY, on that variance is almighty/be good for the game shit all the way back…

Depressing one-link detour- skip over the paragraph below this one if you aren’t in the mood; read it if you struggle with depression and want to feel less alone:

I’m almost positive this guy killed himself. He and I never met irl, but started off really rocky on 2p2 (in other threads). I’m happy we reconciled. I’m very unhappy he killed himself. I’ve been depressed a lot in my life and feel like I ran hot in that I can take any pain and I have a good strategy for whenever I’m feeling super low: DO WHATEVER YOU CAN TO GET THROUGH (FUCK, WORKOUT, JERK OFF, DRINK, SMOKE, GET SOBER, WATCH WEDDING CRASHERS, WRITE, PAINT, WHATEVER) AND KNOW THAT BECAUSE YOU ARE SO LOW YOU HAVE A HIGH COMING THAT OTHERS DON’T (THAT’S HOW IT WORKS). SERIOUSLY, JUST GET THROUGH/EMBRACE THE PAIN AS A STRENGTHENER/STOP THINKING FOR A WHILE/BREATHE… R.I.P.

My boy, smart AF, on that variance/Abyss shit early…

OK, the thread actually has way more gold in it than I remembered. Any serious player should prob read the whole thing. Having said that, I’ll be more scrupulous in my highlights. Dunks only moving forward!

MY FIRST UPDATE since my OP…

Don’t fuck with a dad, just sayin…

OK I’ll only post windmill dunks moving forward…

MY SECOND UPDATE. My whole tone is different- am I manic-depressive, or just high on run-good here? Serious question (kinda)…

IDK why I posted this (or why I’m re-posting it)…

How’d you know I was broke?

OK fuck, I’ll only post highlights…

THIS is a highlight (even if it doesn’t seem like one). You want to teach/coach? I don’t blame you (it’s awesome) and you have many options… Just not poker.

I’ll edit this out later, I disagree with my boy though. Not top 10…

A few pages of poker coaches sticking up for their behavior because… it’s their behavior. I was good though and didn’t tilt link!

THIS is important though. Poker is a “zero sum game”- the economy is not.

Aiming my gun at the coaching discussion (and loading it)…

Welcome to the island of “METAPHORICA“.

When people defend their actions with everything but good reasons for their actions, their actions are bad and they know it (at least deep down). Try harder…

THIS is long, and therefore likely a highlight? Update: it is a highlight- a poker player acknowledges running good!

fuck home games

I’ve felt like I’ve had a DEBT to pay my whole life for some reason…

Too many nights like this (edit it out later/def not a highlight lol)…

Whales think you are a whale- IDK is that good?

FLIPPING NIGHTMAREI don’t know if this is a highlight, but it’s def weird enough to enjoy I think.

THE ABYSS, likely THE highlight of the thread…

Want to buy me a beer?

My poker/life story, written over 6 years- with no ending in sight, is free to read any way you like (“Top 10 Spews”, “Pranqster Highlights”, or the whole damn thing in all its guts and glory). If after reading it you decide you want to buy me a beer (countless people have messaged me saying exactly this), here is your opportunity. 3 bucks should get me a beer at the bars I like to go to… Much appreciated, DGAF
