You Don't Say?

Reading poker blogs turned out an unexpected benefit for me tonight and one that had almost nothing to do with poker strategy or how to explain away crazy donkey moves.

I read a story on one of the blogs about a home game where the hero was surprised to discover that it was a raked game. (sorry cannot recall who and have not been able to dig it up with Google)

Thanks to that story I knew something was out of whack with the dealer getting tokes and pulling a rake in what was supposed to be 'friendly' game with a bunch of guys from the office.

I got out as quickly and graciously as I felt I could.

On the way down the driveway my friend apologized and said it took him by surprise too. We chalked it up as a lesson learned (ask more questions before hand).

[I had a lot more to say about this, but decided to delete it all. I am having some trouble being that open in my writing yet. That and giving out some of those details, even if not very specific, kind of makes me nervous.]
