Only at Rivers ...

Seen during a $1/3 NLHE session after the Buccos game at Rivers on Tuesday ...

A brand new player -- a nondescript twenty-something dude -- sat down at the table. On the third hand dealt to him, he four-bet shoved the ~$170 he bought in for pre-flop. He got one caller. The shover wanted to turn his hand over, but the guy who called him didn't want to show yet, so cards remained face-down. The dealer ran the board, which was four rags and a king on the river. The caller said, "Ooh, I probably rivered you," and flipped over A-K. The new player rolled over Q-J offsuit (!), shrugged and said, "Okay, that's all I wanted to do. Good luck, guys." Then he got up and left the poker room.


By the way, as of Tuesday, Rivers no longer makes you post when you sit down at an existing game, which is nice.
