As the first hand is dealt Winnie reaches into a jar of honey because it just tastes so good. The dealer issues a warning and provides napkins. he has to play with his other hand to keep the sticky off the cards. Homer decides to switch hands with his honey covered doughnuts to prevent any issues. The dealer sighs and asks the runners for wet naps. Dory just spins around and Dopey spins his head watching the fish swim in circles. ’
Dopey bets all in without looking at his cards, everyone folds. He collects 150 from blinds. “That worked” Homer said, and then he went all in. Everyone folded and he collected the same. Winnie held his cards with his now clean right hand as he dipped his finger in the jar before taking his turn going all in. Winnie (the only one who looked at his cards thus far) slid his chips to the center of the table with a licked-clean left hand. The dealer gave a stern speech and then swapped out the chips for new ones asking for wet towels to get these chips back in circulation.
everyone, still not even looking at their cards, folded and then Dory got her chance to jump out of the tank to go all in. At this point it should be seen as ironic that only a Dentist was willing to hold the cards up to the glass for Dory to see, but he was talking to the waitress about her bite. This was the first game of poker for all four of them, and they all got to eat, socialize, and win. And they all got to win in equal measures so there was no need for any of them to change their plans.
“The blinds are going up” the dealer said while guzzling a much needed glass of chardonnay. Dopey noted that the windows had curtains and the dealer quickly raised her hand for a much needed break. The tournament director stated that she only gets one break before the break, which was every 45 minutes. And there were about 39 left. Once the TD sat down the players all agreed to wait for her return. With a unanimous decision (and tips being so important) he agreed to let them relax until their special dealer returned.
She took her seat, this time placing a bottle of Chard beside her. Homer asked what does it mean when you say that the blinds are going up. The dealer calmly explained the one two level and so fourth while he just scratched his head looking confused. Eventually the dentist explained that it Really means they can take turns winning larger amounts every time the blinds go up. Everyone looked excited for the possibilities.
They all started playing faster hoping to have more hands each 5 minute round before the blinds went up, and then they played even faster once they did because that would give them more winning hands before things went up again. The good news was that the sticky drama ended simply because it delayed all of them from their turn to win.
Now they were playing a game of hot potato, wondering who would be the winner right before the blinds go up, since somehow that might give one a small lead over the other players. Technically Dory was in the lead because the dentist kept buying different people drinks and the chip ups went to her. She didn’t get why and nobody else noticed. They were all just having oodles of fun.
Christopher Robin came wandering in and saw what was happening. He looked at Winnie’s cards and talked about going all in TOO. Winnie looked at him funny. You have pocket aces, so when Dopey takes his turn and goes all in, you can call. Chris, whispering in his ear, explained the game while everyone waited as the dealer guzzled down the last of her bottle. [ dealing to cartoons isn’t as easy as you might think.]
Dopey, went all in, Winnie called, and then each of them in their own time decided to go all in. The dealer sat up and hoped that this would be the deciding hand and a winner would be established. They all revealed their cards before the flop was even seen. Winnie had the two red aces, Dory had the Q7 of clubs, homer had 2/3 unsuited, and Dopey had K8 unsuited. the flop gave them the Ace King, and Jack of Spades. At this point no one knew what that meant. no one but the dentist who is finally paying attention to the game. A ten could give the fish wrangler a straight and that would beat trip aces.
Then the ten of spades came down and Homer said that that was a bad card cause no one has any of those (so it can’t help). the dealer looked up the tournament rules for royal straight flushes. The verbiage stated that all players winning with a royal straight flush And going all in (regardless of chip stack) wins a bonus trip to Vegas with a seat in the big amateur tournament next August. The dealer gets nothing. Now with over a bottle of the best white wine the Knights of Columbus could muster, she began to calculate the odds that the queen of spades would drop.
They all thought that aces beat kings, queens, and tens and congratulated Winnie for winning it all. The dealer called the TD to have him explain what had happened and it took him over a half an hour just getting everyone to grasp the concept of a joint win. The dealer, a bit tipsy I might add, recommended the KC white wine to help and she wondered if anyone can explain to them that they had won.
Eventually they got the concept and were still miffed that they could win before the blinds finished going up. The TD quickly sent them home after shaking hands with their friends, Snow White, Christopher, the dentist and Bart. They all got their open ended ticket, invite to the Vegas open, and an engraved t-shirt that says " I got a royal straight flush in a poker tournament and all I got was this louse tee shirt"
none of them could wear it anyways.
