Black Friday, or as GCP puts it aPOKERlypse NOW, has come and gone and so has the Bat’s money. The Bat’s got cash sitting in an account that is frozen somewhere. Not since a local congressman Crooked Jefferson, a bad 1-2 player at Harrahs btw, stored bribes in his freezer has so much Louisiana cash been on ice. Apparently the DOJ and Homeland Security think going after online poker is good for business and good for the economy and good for our… safety?
As for business: If it’s their business, yeah that make sense, been great for the business of the federal government. Good for the people’s business? Don’t think so. Cash strapped police departments just ran an illegal payment processor in concordance with the federal government to generate 500k in revenue. Go to this local poker news site for more. They’ve also frozen 100s of millions of dollars, which they will soon parse out to bloated federal programs any day in all likelihood. Don’t be surprised if the IRS and state governments asked you for taxes (many of you already paid on Black Friday) on those funds you can kiss goodbye. They’ll get you both ways.
As for the economy: Hello, 50k of newly unemployed poker players. Also, goodbye money that they spend freely, when that’s what the economy needs most people spending money like we aren’t in a recession. So big airball on that one.
As for safety: Not sure terrorists are the ones whose moneys been frozen. See most of them live out of the United States and can still withdraw their money. The ones that can’t are the average citizens that live here. Not really helping matters at all. Course that’s what we’ve come to expect from Homeland Security which makes their involvement all the more head-scratching.
The Poker Bat, has been on a bit of a sabbatical, but now that the Bat sees part time poster Kai Landry has gotten a blog out, which happens about as often as every other leap year, the Bat needs to dust off the cobwebs and blog. This is the best he could come up with. Moving on…
What else has been going on in the Bat’s life? The Bat has been crushing games on the flooded side of the Mississippi. Is it that hard to ask for our government to build levees that can handle better than a 1 in a 10o year flood? The Bat hates to take monies of people suffering but that’s what usually happens in poker anyway.
The Bat has also been sighted at the World Series of Poker-Circuit event going deep in a tournament. More than one tournament. Any cashes to his name? Uh, no.
The Bat won’t bore you with one outers or tales of runner-runners because the Bat don’t get badbeated out of a tournament he bluffs off his chips like a man. These internet kids taught the Bat a thing or two about three or four betting just turns out when the Bat was polarizing his range with bluffs those kiddies had the goods. The Bat is tired of polarizing, especially Full Tilt polarizing his online bankroll.
Swear it was like Halloween, every time the Bat made a move on a child in a tournament or a cash game, the little f’er had something in his goodie bag. The Bat saw more pocket aces in somebody else’s hand then he’d care to see for a lifetime.
Vegas is calling the Bat, with that yearly siren
‘s song. Come crash your boats on our shores while the other fools is holding quads–the Bat believes that is how the ditty goes. Las Vegas, personified, would be like Katy Perry to the Bat. She looks good from far, seems entertaining, and promises an ample bosom of pleasure, however up close, as Russell Brand is discovering Perry bears more than a passing resemblance to one of the cartoon step-sisters of Cinderella (google it, as close as Bieber is to a lesbian, alright the Bat googled it for you… you’re welcome), she’s probably spanx-ed and corsetted into appearing to have an awesome body, but without that elastic is likely all saggy tissue, muffintop, bingo wings, and mushiness, and that… voice, ugh.
Perry’s voice is like many singers interesting for one song, but then loses it’s bite with repetition. It’s different so evokes a few listens, but far from the talent of other singers to become an iPod staple. Can you imagine what Lothario and former womanizer Russell Brand is feeling now, that voice probably grates on his last nerve, and she’s probably comfortable enough to let it all hang out around him and pass gas. You know being constricted all day must do a number on her bowels. Sure does on the Bat, anytime he double t-shirts in to flattened his man-boobs.
Okay, that’s Katie Perry. That’s also Vegas. She’s fun for a night or two, she’s exciting enough to carry your interest, but don’t marry her, in fact, don’t stay too long with her, if she knows you aren’t in it for the long haul, try to wake up before she does and get our of town or else you’ll lose ALL your money.
The Bat wants to go the world series and may just do that, despite knowing behind the fake Katie Perry glam is an ugly step-sister. But the Bat wants to ask Phil Gordon why he put a Bad Beat on the Bat’s Bankroll, and why he’s still asking for a piece of the players winnings to donate to charity. You want a piece of my live bankroll too, now that you got all my online bankroll. The Bat doesn’t think so Phil, your charity is all good, but the Bat has to question anything you do now, at least until the Full Tilt ship is righted. And it takes a lot of gall to be front in center asking for money when your company is holding many players bankrolls.
Alright, poker players the Bat will be back with more… soon.
