We're going to play poker and win prizes!

Everybody on BGG has a User ID number.

I found mine quickly by scrolling over the Gallery tab on my BGG home page. The number appeared at the lower left hand corner of the screen. My number is 90554.

The rules are simple:

The numbers will represent playing cards using "1" for an Ace and "0" for a 10. A player may use five numbers to create a poker hand. The Ace is the high card, and if two players have equal hands the remaining high card wins.

Some members who have been on BGG forever might have three digit ID numbers while some new users have six digit ID numbers. Tough luck. The new users need the glory and the prizes more anyway.

CLARIFICATION: A pioneer Geek with a hand containing three or four pitiful cards can participate in the contest. These unlucky Geeks have zero chance of winning the big pot but could still be awarded a random consolation prize. I intended to weight this contest in favor of new users but I don't want to exclude anyone.

Create your poker hand and post it on this GeekList with a game that reflects your experience with poker.

The contest will be limited to the first 250 Geeks who participate in this GeekList. If less than 250 Geeks participate the contest will end at 9:00 PM on Sunday, March 22nd.

These three fabulous prizes are available:


 


A sealed deck of Settlers Of Catan playing cards.




This lovely 1970s plastic dice cup from the vintage Showdown Poker game.


TEN geekgold plus whatever tips are donated to this GeekList by our generous BGG community.



The winner picks one prize of his or her choice. The remaining two prizes will be awarded randomly (I'll roll dice or something) to other participants.

Everybody has a chance to win!

Two tens and an ace kicker.

I am the king of fold. I stay on the table for a long time, but I rarely win, and when I do decide to play a hand, everyone knows it is actually a good one because I am so lousy at bluffing.

I've never played poker for $$ in my life. AND I've never posted to a GeekList before.

No Queens here, but my number is 240220. From that, I'd like to drop the 4 and play:

10-10-2-2-2 for a full house

Now, I know that's a good hand, but I don't know what it beats (e.g., a straight that I saw near the beginning). Also, to be honest, I didn't read all 120 entries before mine. blush

Also, 1,000 thanks to ...

Arrrgghhh! This is not only a full house, it's the best full house you can get: aces over tens. But it's still below the quads we've seen.

This is how you lose big at poker. You don't lose big with bad hands. You don't lose big with good hands. You lose big with great hands...when you're second best.
