2017 Game 1

February 18th, 2017:
On a chilly February Saturday at dusk, the 2017 C'Mon Baby! Poker League began its 7th momentous season, gathering in Susan's new wretched hive of scum and villainy. Its wretchedness matched only by it's spacious non-wretchedness and pool! Stay tuned to for pool poker in July!

We hosted old veterans (Susan, Fernando and three time League winner, 2016 Champion, and totally humble dude Tim), some who show their face once in a while to pick the right fucking time to suck out on the river on basically a do-or-die hand against Tim (Alec), an ex-pro that really only focused on the ex part and also the winner of the very first league game, Mr Glory Days (Jason), a young up-start maverick who was taking no shit from Didi's dealing (Shawn), and Didi, who enjoyed dealing so much that he decided to stop playing early and deal all night. For that, Didi gets the CB!PL Participant Spotlight Award. Way to participate!!

The game started like they always do, lots of swearing, moving chips to Tim and Tim generously boosting the confidence of those at the table. If there was a theme, it was "Hey, wanna have some of my whiskey?" Lots of it was being poured into red solo cups, making the game a little loose (looking at you Shawn), and certainly entertaining. Toward the middle of the second half of the game, Shawn was throwing his chips in the middle more to see what he actually had, more than anything else. It was the Shawn Shoves Show for a while, prompting Alec to call him crazy. Yes, Alec. Those that know, know. After Alec pointed out what was obvious, Shawn shut the crazy talk down, saying he was an Adrenaline Drunky. Alec then followed up with "Yeah, you drink your Adrenalines." To those not there, seeing this here in print may not do the exchange much justice, but I thought it was one of the funniest quotes from our games ever. And, drinking those Adrenalines helped him slide into second place like a jilted lover going to a hooker; slow and drunk.

After the first bust, the group became friends and and played poker for a long time before anyone else left the table. But, in the end, it all ends up the same, with a pile of bodies off to the side, growing larger as the table gets smaller. And here is the casualty list from Game One, 2017:

7th DiDi, busted by Tim, Flush over 9s
6th Jason, busted by Alec, QQ over Ace high
5th Susan, busted by Tim, 2 pair over Ace high
4th Fernando, busted by Shawn, AK over A8
3rd (Bitter) Tim, busted by Alec, rivered straight over As and 7s, taking down $10 in bounties and $15 in prize money.
2nd Shawn, busted by Alec two pair over AA, taking home $5 in bounties and $40 in Prizes
1st If you can't figure it out by now, you probably shouldn't read these anymore, he took $20 in bounties and $90 in Prize Money that he should choke on.

Much thanks to Susan for opening her home to the game. Next game is at Tim's Den of Inequity. Stay tuned for more details.

We had no extra points to give out at all this time.

As the 2017 season rang the opening bell, another Poker Tournament came to an end when we learned of the passing of one of our own: Ron Edmunds. He came on the scene virtually unknown. Or, actually unknown, showing up at his first game and no one there knew who he was. But it turned out he was an as-yet-to-be-known cousin of Dærick (not quite accurate... he was my newly-discovered-cousin's wife's son's grandfather), and after one CB!PL-sponsored dealer's choice game, he was hooked. He took his first win in Game 5 of the 2014 season, then a handful of solid cashes over the rest of his time with us. His last game with us was Game Two of the 2016 season, when he and Tim went toe to toe at the end and took second place. That second place finish was enough to get him into the 2016 season finals, but unfortunately he was not in any condition to play by then. Susan carried the torch for Ron instead in the final game. He was a very vocal player, was great at throwing his cards in disgust, loved to taunt Fernando, and hated that Tim taunted him, and that he could never get the upper hand on Tim. He was a good guy, loved to eat whatever food was at the game, and if he played at Dærick's place, didn't mind the alcohol, either. He was a friend to all of us at CB!PL, and he will be missed.

R.I.P. Ron

 

League Info for the
Current Season

Specific information such as joining the fun or posted game times/ location for the C'Mon, Baby! Poker League can be found by following the link to our Facebook page. For a general schedule of games or to see the current rankings, hit the links in the left margin of this page.

Rankings and Stats

We began keeping league stats as of 2011, mostly for fun, but also to chart how often Tim goes out first and deals for everyone else. Typically in each Season there are ten games planned, held monthly from February through November. December is off due to holidays, and January is reserved for the Champions tourney. There are also Non-Season games from time to time, which do not count for the main league rankings. Games will be announced ahead of time as being a League game or not.

League Rules

We do have a set of House Rules we play by, basically they are simple common courtesy rules. We do expect new players to read through them carefully and be responsible enough to adhere to them. With money on the table, a common set of rules just keeps things orderly enough to let everyone relax and have a good time.
