I've seen it all

OK about 3-4 times a year we have a poker night. It's a $10 buy in and overall I've done fairly well. Won a couple bucks my first time, lost out early the 2nd and came home with a handsome return.
Tonight. I think I can honestly say that I played poker with the devil himself because the luck this guy had was unreal. I believe all night he folded once and went all in on just about half his hands. It started with 8 people around 10pm. By midnight it was down to 3 and two people had already bought in a second time. About 30 minutes later he let Butch go for $15. He took the rest.
That's right. He took the rest.
Not only did he play aggressively but on nearly every hand he actually had the best hand. The only thing he didn't get was a royal flush and a four of a kind. Otherwise I saw it all more than once.
Meanwhile, yours truly had two good hands all night. I had a straight once and was beat by a King high flush, then I had two pair with Aces and Threes only to be beat by Aces and Eights.
Next time we play, it'll be free for me. We'll see what comes out of that.

I watched a man I've never met completely slaughter 7 other people at poker including the guy who's birthday it was...twice (Happy Birthday Aaron, BTW). What also sucked was he talked the whole time. Never digging it in but just never shutting his trap either.

So yeah. It's also downpouring over here. Just a deluge of rain the likes of which we haven't seen in like...I don't know...8 months or so. Fun to sleep to. Good night.

I had to come home to realize why it was all so fucked up: Friday the 13th, man. Friday the 13th.
