So tonight was the final night of karaoke at Reilly's, as the bar is closing after its abortive relaunch.
Because the universe loves cliches, a bar fight broke out (over a poker game no less) and the place shut down early.
Having listened to a few accounts, here's how I think the final hand went down:
Drunken Dickwad #1 holds A2. Drunken Dickwad #2 holds AJ.
The flop is all rags, including a deuce. One of the dickwads pushed all-in and the other one calls. Turn is a blank, river is a jack.
Drunken Dickwad #1 reaches for the pot. Drunken Dickwad #2 grabs Drunken Dickwad #1's hand (his real fleshy hand, not his cards) and wrenches back one of his fingers. Play resumes, and by 'play' I mean 'further idiocy'.
Can't imagine why I never sat in on one of those games in all the times I was there.
