What I'm Thanful For...

by Luckbox

Thanksgiving is the time of year to take a look back at what you're thankful for. So in looking back at my time at the tables, I've decided that I'm thankful for...

...the bad beat jackpot. There's nothing like losing a hand and walking away with $1600.

...playing poker with Dad. Last time I was home, my Dad ran a little tourney at his favorite watering hole (he's like Norm there... really!). I finished up for the night and so did he. I think I impressed him. This also gives me a chance to remind you of the best post ever on Up For Poker where Otis talks about his Dad.

...playing poker with my brother. I think most people grow up to realize that their siblings are some of their closest friends, even if they fought every day growing up. Anyone who is a twin knows that bond can be even tighter. My brother and I sling chips any chance we get. This also gives me a chance to point out some of the funniest posts ever written for Up For Poker.

...playing poker with my sister and brother-in-law. My parents apparently did a good job of raising a bunch of gambling degenerates. And my sister has even gotten my brother-in-law in on the action. In just a few months I'll be an uncle and I'll work on turning my nephew J.P. into the next great poker champ!

...playing poker with Mom. See, everyone in the family is ready to throw down. Of course, with Mom involved, we're only supposed to play for pride. The money games wait until she's in bed! Greenville poker buddies. Everytime I return to G-Vegas, I can count on some good poker. First there was Bradoween then there was the Garage Poker. And if I make it there for New Year's Eve... I have a feeling there will be a little poker then, too! bloggers. What an amazing little community we've built. We have had several online tourneys and soon, our first live event (if there's a miracle, I'll be there). And now we have a logo and T-shirts. Look out WPT, the WPBT is coming! Does that need any explanation?

...flopping a flush.

...filling a boat on the river.

...Up For Poker readers. I'd probably write even if no one was reading, but hundreds of you stop by every day to see what Otis and I are up to. I'm really thankful for Otis, because his writing making this web site what it is. And it's you readers who make us keep doing it!
