Which is appropriate, he said, “The Dreaded Pocket Kings”!!! This was the evening immediately after that notorious hand that I reviewed previous time (right here), which was Aces vs Kings vs Kings.
(I apologize for the inadequate high-quality of the movie, cell cellphone movie taken specifically off the display screen of a dated Television set is not perfect. Nevertheless, you can hear it, appropriate?)
I was involved in anything else when this aired reside, but my pal Lightning36 heard it and straight away texted me to see if I had caught it way too. Thankfully my DVR was recording the protection and I was in a position to locate the reference in my recording.
Lightning straight away tweeted out the subsequent tweet:
Hey @NormanChad and @lonmceachern – remember to credit @Robvegaspoker with the expression you utilized tonight – The Dreaded Pocket Kings.
I retweeted that myself but to the best of my information they hardly ever commented on this, either on the air or on Twitter.
Now even nevertheless I hardly ever actually copyrighted the phrase, my website is evidence that I originated it, and I will be calling my lawyer, Pete P. Peters, for lawful suggestions in defending my rights. At the quite the very least, if no financial payment is supplied, I ought to get to do the “Shuffle Up and Offer” at the next principal occasion, appropriate? Appropriate?
Of system, I am kidding. It was an honor to hear my coined expression for the dreaded hand on nationwide Television set. Incredibly awesome.
In the meantime, how’d you like the principal occasion this yr? I will have to confess I didn’t keep up for the complete heads up last desk. I did have it recorded and watched the previous couple of arms in the early morning, immediately after studying the result. Both equally of the last two fellas played great and it was quite entertaining to be positive. Congrats to Tony Miles and particularly John Cynn, a quite worthy champion.
All the fellas at the end ended up sound. Nevertheless it would be great to see a lady make the last desk next yr.
I am positive Kate Hoang (underneath) would concur.
And whoever would make it, view out for those dreaded Pocket Kings…..appropriate Lon?
