You know, being a movie star and a television star and a new hot author doesn't necessarily help you at the poker table.
Wil Wheaton found that out. Here's just a taste of his story:
We're on our fourth or fifth hand, playing a no-limit freeze out. I look at my hole cards and find that I've dealt myself the Big Slick: A-K, the second best starting hand in Hold 'Em. Ryan checks, and I decide to limp in, hoping to get some action on this hand.
If that isn't a lead-in to a bad beat story, I don't know what is! Well Wil, you're invited at our table any time!
Wil wants everyone to know that this wasn't supposed to be a story of his poker prowess... but a story about his relationship with his stepson. I think poker is a great way to build a relationship. I can't wait to deal one up with my Dad next time I'm home!!! I expect to take his money. I also remember the night Otis and I sat down at a table with his Dad. It was a lot of fun.
