Chop chop?

I forgot to blog about this amusing incident from the poker tables this past weekend.

Everyone folded to the blinds. The Big Blind asked, "Do you want to chop?"

The lady in the small blind said, "No."

She threw in her $1 chip to complete, and the BB raised to $10. The SB then folded.

The rest of us had trouble keeping a straight face.


  1. I get so tilted by idiots that won't chop when it folds to the blinds. At one place I used to play frequently, they had a bad beat jackpot, there was this ornery old lady that INSISTED on on playing any hand that could possibly create a bad beat jackpot. Efforts to explain to her that she'd be more likely to hit the jackpot if we just folded and got a redeal immediately, not to mention the fact that we wouldn't have to donate to the rake, were met only with scorn. Just thinking about it makes me want to scream.
