Today, I was holding our weekly poker game with a few work buddies. My psychotic, live-in mother-in-law wasted no time jumping into the game, cheating me out of $150, my new wristwatch, and what little pride I had left. FML

Sounds like you should learn how to play poker.

26 - 'your' = possessive 'you're' = contraction, meaning 'you are' Before you go calling someone a dumbass you might want to make sure you're not one either.

Luck plays a large part in individual hands, but the game is self is entirely based in statistics and reading your opponents while not letting them know what you have. There's a reason that year after year you see many of the same faces at the final table of the world series of poker, despite thousands of talented entrants.

Luck plays into poker as it does into sports. Only affects hand by hand action, as it does in sports by goals/points/etc. Only skill gives you that long term profit with poker as it does championships with sports. In conclusion, sounds like OP got ran over by his mother in law, and fails at bankroll management

yeah, but sometimes the way people hit effects every player. If grandma's hitting on all her 17's and getting a ten, then the dealer gets a 21 after drawing when he should have gotten the 10 that made the dealer bust....then she comes around and wins. I've seen people get preeeeetty upset about their poker etiquette. /

*mother in law. sorry, i had an instant mental image of a little old lady playing poker when i read this...don't know why

53- you're thinking of blackjack not poker.

ho-ly crap. and that is my que to get off fml and go to bed. I am so sorry, and thank you. that's what I get for being up for 30 hours....pure embarrassment haha

Too bad you just described blackjack and not poker.

Next, she'll get her daughter back and half of your stuff as well.

Your Mother-in-law has game lol

Sounds like you need to show some courage and ask your Mother in law to move out before you become enemies or you loose your self respect completely!

Sounds you you need to shut up before blowing chunks of bullshit of things you don't even know about!

So 8. Tell me, how does one "loose" their self respect?....

24-Notice how you got thumbed down more than 8 did. That should tell you who needs to shut up.

57 - Did I comment anything else after that (besides this reply)? No? Then there was no need for your comment about me needing to 'shut up.' Thanks.

I would say your being a hypocrite telling 8 that they don't know what they're talking about when at 17, you most definitely haven't had any experiences kicking someone out of your own home. As for telling you to shut up, I feel it was necessary, as you felt the need to unnecessarily curse out 8.

I thumbed "xXxIracebethxXx" down just because she use "xXx" in her name. She do realize that "xxx" is a reference to alcohol, right?

#24. STFU. no one wants your opinion. Now get back in the kitchen where you belong.

#66 xXx is put in front and in back of names to show that they are straght edge, it doesnt always mean alcohol.

xXxIracebethxXx 14

66 - If I knew that, I wouldn't care in the least bit. I couldn't care less if you thought I put xxx as a reference to the extreme level of pornography. 74 - I'm going to be honest and admit I don't know what straight edge is. It must not be good, though. Meh. I can't change my username, even if I wanted to.

This is why people are put in homes.

Steal it all back as she sleeps. As well as anything she finds valuable. Hold it ransom until she teaches you her mad skills. :)
