    Matt Damon in Rounders although you multiplied it by 10. Love it. My only issue with poker Is it's such a slow grind unless you can get upstairs to a private game. I won upstairs but now I suspect that it was shady ( was rolling with Phil on numerous games). Never saw anything but I got a lot of cards

    I live outside Nashville. Wish I could get together with a bunch of clutchfans for a good poker night. My restaurant has a really cool upstairs if anyone is interested in a “Clutchfans” weekend 40 minutes from Nashville.

    "Won Big" = Won a Little
    "Won Some" = Close to Break Even, but Lost
    "Broke Even" = Lost More
    "Lost" = Got Wiped Out

    Vegas was not built on winners.

    Was there some kind of special 3 pt line they were shooting from? Nobody could hit tonight.

    I don't know who was guarding Keon Johnson (Guard) but I can't blame
    Josh Christopher. Assignment was either TyTy or Nix (both)?

    He scored 25 points while the next closest was 9 points by
    Luka Garza, Jabari Walker and Greg Brown.

    That stands out like a sore thumb.

    I feel Jabari's 3pt shot betrayed him, otherwise it was an outstanding showing. 15pts/9 rebounds/ 1.3 blocks/ Godly perimeter defense.
    If he does that in the regular season with an average 3pt ball, 18 pts a game on 13 FGs is a lock. Defense translates but he will be introduced to FIFA style thespians.

    So efficient for someone that can't do this:

    All I know is Keon scored 25 points on a night Josh Christopher had off.

    J C probably at the bookies betting on Keon to have a big night if you know what I mean

    Buh Yah

    I guess he didnt break the summer league blocks record like he nonchalantly blabbed he could after the first game. Fancy that. :rolleyes: I have a feeling Mr Chet is going to be in for a heavy dose of humility this year.
