I’m sure some of you are probably sick of me pimping the DeadPool game but there’s been some activity so I’ll leave this update.
Total Approved Celebs: 134
Total Denied Celebs: 11 (most are either US political figures or already dead)

ToBeRight (24) and Terrapod (18) both of you have had denials so you might want to get over there an update your lists.
The rest of you seem to be still working on your lists. No rush.
Sorry about that. Not only did I miss poker again, I fucking missed the Poker Night post. Apologies for that, I didn’t realize it was Tuesday.
I know I’ve been half-assed about making it to poker night. I’ll really try to be there tonight. You should know, that the server will be up even if I’m not around.
We’ve also got updated rankings for H&B Football Pick’em:
And an update on H&B DeadPool; Almost all core functionality is completed. The only thing missing at this point is the ‘Report Death’ function which should be completed in the next day or so. I’ve also uploaded pictures of the Grand Prize here.
If you’re new, Poker Night instructions and downloads are here.
Sorry for completely missing a Monday post.
Poker Tonight at 8:00PM Texas Time.
Update [ArmedGeek]: Hookers & Booze Radio is back!
Update [ArmedGeek]: Ok, another Poker Night at Hookers & Booze is done.
In the first game it was mostly a blowout with Light29ID taking it all and Aggie holding out until the bitter end.
Game 2 rolled a bit different with Light29ID going down after 30 hands. Botnet fell after 34 hands and Tiberius went after 36.
Amazingly that left only Softailrider and ArmedGeek and it wasn’t even close but ArmedGeek managed to hold on through 44 hands before finally being defeated by Softailrider.
Game 1: Light29ID
Game 2: Softailrider
Tonight is Poker Night at Hookers & Booze. First game starts at 8pm Texas Time.
Another poker night has come and gone. Light29ID wins Game 1 after 59 hands and botnet wins Game 2 in 53 hands.
Its that time again, Poker Night is tonight at 8pm Texas Time.
Update [ArmedGeek]: Another Poker Night has come and gone. If I’ve learned anything from the last couple of Poker Nights its that I really need to stop playing poker sober. The lovely Aggie was the first to go broke in Game 1 after being finished off in Hand 17 by TerribleTroy. Unfortunately, TerribleTroy was afflicted by a power surge knocking him offline and out of the game. Game 1 dragged on until ArmedGeek finally took the last of Draco’s chips in Hand 50.
ArmedGeek wins Game 1.
Game 2 got started with the return of Tiberius and botnet. botnet was drunk. ArmedGeek and Tiberius fight it out in Hand 17, ArmedGeek with a Full House, Sevens full of Kings, and Tiberius with a Full House Kings full of Sixes. ArmedGeek left penniless. The game went on and botnet was made to sit down and shut the fuck up by Tiberius after 27 hands. Moments later in Hand 29, Tiberius takes the last of Aggie’s chips, beating her pair of Queens with his pair of Kings.
Tiberius wins Game 2.
As always, the full log is after the Hookers.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen it is that time again. First game starts at 8pm Texas Time.
Apparently, I’d stepped on Aggie’s Poker Night post here and she did really well on the Hooker, so …
After ArmedGeek fell out early with an ill-advised all-in in the 9th hand. LC_BU1 was afflicted with network problems and lagged out of the game. Aggie lost her chips in hand 35 and botnet went down in the 42nd leaving just Tiberius and Draco to drag it out to 68 hands before Draco finally took it all.

Sorry, I’m late getting this posted, but we’ll be doing Poker Night tonight. I’m sorry I was unable to make last week’s game.
Tonight, I was thinking about doing it a little different. Instead of starting with $10,000 we’ll start with $5,000. It should make the first half of the game more interesting and should make each game shorter. Also, if there are no objections, we’ll start at 9pm Texas Time instead of 8pm. So we’ll be one hour later than usual.
Poker night is going to be late this week. It should only be delayed by an hour so we should be getting started at 8pm Texas Time.
We had another great poker night here at Hookers & Booze and actually had a couple of new players join us. Sentry and softailrider were able to make it in for the second game. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to play long in the second game after a really stupid decision in the forth hand had LC BU1 taking me out of game 2.
Game 1: After 73 hands, LC BU1 finishes off ArmedGeek for the win (surprisingly this isn’t a record. Game 2 of our first Poker Night also went 73 hands)
Game 2: After 35 hands LC Aggie Sith takes down Tiberius for the win
