More Riverside Hilarity

I often talk about the Orleans, and how the locals there sometimes make up their own odds and spout them during or after big hands.

This is something that often happens at Riverside, too. They don't do it quite the same way, but they still come up with some crazy odds and statistics.

One day Glenn and I were playing in the 2-6 HE game. A local raised, another local either cold called or re-raised. The local had AK, the lone opponent had QQ. The flop came down with an ace and the local bet the maximum ($6).

The turn brought the queen (maybe the river, this has been a couple of months, but that isn't the point).

After the hand was over, the "knowledgable" local went ballistic. He jumped up from his chair and said, "That was a 47:3 shot. He wasn't getting anywhere near that to make such a call!"

Glenn looked at me like, "Huh? Three what? Where did he get those numbers???"

I said, "Must be Orleans Odds."

We both cracked up.
