Taco's were laid on by the Banker for those that came pre dinner.
As usual it was a great night with some highlights as follows:
1. Both the Developer and BigBluff were scheduled to be late due to the attendance to the Dragon's first Home Game at OKI using their Season Tickets.
2. Banker selected an interesting pattern for the table cloth which made seeing the cards on the table difficult however the real reason for using it became apparent as the plastic table cloth served well under bombardment by the Jagger in several wine spills. We will now refer to the Jagger as the Coonawarra "Valdeez" Jagger.
3. Prior to arrival of the Developer and BB, GT and Jagger were apparently involved in what has been variously described as a vigourous debate, battle of the pitbulls, exaggerated discussions and embarrassing. This was as a result on a countback normal flush between Punter and Jagger which in the end, both came second to the Rok's full house!!!. It has yet to be clearly identified as to who was in fact correct and BB is currently investigating the matter in detail and will report back to the members ASAP.
4. Arrival of both the Developer and BB was around 10pm after a fanatastic and well deserved 30- Nil thrashing of the Eels at Oki- Revenge is sweer!!!!
5. Both the Developer and BB were fined 17 small blinds for being late, being the number of hands missed. This was agreed by the members present at 8.15pm as being the appropriate fine for late starters and as such the Constitution has been updated accordingly. Both Developer and BB accepted the fine without hesitation.
6. The game pace then slowed according to GT after the arrival of the Developer and BB, however the pots were now much more substantial with the familiar "Raise" being more often stated by BB than not.
7. Pots seem to go in the Developer's direction with a steady build up of reds.
8. BB introduced the doubled sided elevator which drew mixed feedback but led to a large pot on 2 occassions.
9. The Jagger's "Big Box" was relegated to the "never to be played again" box along with his 7-card Stud
10. Refreshment break at 11pm was well received.
11. Game went on with a number of large capped rounds in various games.
12. Game finished just before 2am
13. Winner was Developer followed by The Rok then Damit!!.
14. Biggest Loser records were lost in transit and will be advised at another time.
15. Members agreed to consider Maverick's request for a Saturday night game for the next BRC.
