The DOG is unstoppable on a night of silly hats and jubilee action. It's grinder night as everyone plays it cautious.
Fingers and Professor suffer from an overdose of softly softly online poker and Grinder bottles after a recent ravaging from her indoors.. the Anaconda.
Three in a row for the first time ever... once, twice... three times a lady.
The DOG even pissed kicks the Jokers red white and blue (ok, just black and blue). Eats up all the early chips in a rabid assult on the short hands. Scary consistancy and a newfound arrogance, more German Sheperd than sheep dog. 'I am top of all leagues, how many wins in how many games now!!?!' Unbearable...
Fingers lingers and plays it careful. Despite minimising his risks he manages to take a strong chip lead one on one with the DOG. Loses flop 88 to AJ all in. Yet again second to the DOG, he must be her pregnant dog now surely. Disappointing.
Professor is back in the world of angst and is disputing from the the first flop. Gambles like he's had a barrel of guinness (well he had) and manages to survive by some outrageous bravado gambling (luck) to win three points. Surely he is now totally lost in a poker desert.
Sam plays the percentages and manages to defeat the mighty Grinder on her maiden voyage into poker. Silent and efficient. Times up as safety first approach is overtaken. Escaped on the fifth card time after time. She is the 'River'.
Grinder wins the wooden sthingy for the first time in his career. No excuses, timid play is no excuse for losing with poor cards. Two dimensional play could not sustain his run of good form as the 52 card pack turned against him. Back to the drawing board for the Grinder.

The Early Bath gave Grinder an opportunity to finally open those Poker books to review his strategy. To his relief they were a mirror of his style of play. No changes to the Grinder's play then, just a patient wait for Lady Luck to give him a break !! (Lets hope it is not too long)
Respect must be given for his creation "DOG", however. She is a cool, calculating player. Don't underestimate her ! (Cards obviously runs in her family's veins). Grinder will have to find some serious form to knock her off the top of the table and restore some dignity for the Poker Jokers !

frankenstein has created a card monster... and in true gothic style she has destroyed her master.
