There is nothing more delicious than an Indian curry.
According to the BBC, us Brits consume 18 tonnes of chicken tikka masala across the country each week, served up by 15,000 Indian restaurants.
However, there is nothing to compliment a curry more than a good game of poker and that is exactly what I did last night.
I ordered the takeaway and they said it would be an hour and 10 minutes to wait. I held off from registering for a game until the food arrived. After an hour and twenty minutes my stomach was still rumbling as the food still hadn't arrived. I was itching to get cracking on my game of poker too.
At last, the food turned up after 90 minutes and I could finally register for my game.
I registered for the game after my food was plated up and despite the fact that the food wasn't too hot, it was exceptionally tasty.
The game started and I did my usual posting, folding and munching on my curry in between hands. I finally got a decent hand and raised pre-flop. I had JJ and was in late position so I raised 12 times the big blind.
There were 2 callers in this hand. The flop came down 556 rainbow. I bet the pot which took the majority of my chips and one player called. The turn was an 8. I then bet the rest of my chips and my remaining opponent called. I showed my JJ and he showed 34 spades. The river was a 7 and he hit his straight and I was out.
What I don't understand is why he would call 12x BB with that hand. It just doesn't make sense at all.
So I was out of the game and I was still eating my curry which was absolutely stone cold by now.
What a waste of money on the food and what a waste of money on the game. Curry, poker nad donkeys certainly do not go together!
