Arthur Lowell has posed:
    Welcome back to Poker Night.

    The Prospitan Poker Yacht is back. Gold-like surfaces, brushed or polished in insanely intricate designs, form a long, flat boat perfect for a little party. It's manned by a collection of little iguana-folk, three feet high at their tallest and quite fidgety, and they handle serving drinks and food and such as well! A well-stocked snack table injects a feeling of a house party into the otherwise somewhat classy party vessel, and the main deck is dominated almost entirely by a broad, circular table. The felt atop it is inscribed with a wide spirograph, and around it, one can find little interface buttons, prompting one to PRESS +JOIN - 10,000 BOONDOLLARS. Whatever a +join is supposed to mean.

    What a Boondollar is, exactly, still isn't something Arthur has explained, but it seems everyone here has plenty of them, at least.

    Getting here is simple. Teleportation gates are provided for those who aren't comfortable with getting a ride from one of the limousine-like space shuttles that park and drop off the players and visitors at the yacht. Arthur himself is in his full God Tier robes, giving the situation a lightly casual sort of look. He'll be floating -- literally -- around the party, weightless in antigravity. As for the boat itself, tonight it's actually sailing. A vast ocean planet surface interspersed with massive, bridge-interlocking towers of terrain, the Land of Spires and Frogs. The bright blue sky is filled with light by no sun in particular, and is well overlayed with elegant, shifting plates of orbital steel linked by massive clockwork; the movement and formation is not unlike clouds.

Hemlock (6320) has posed:
Among those coming in on the shuttles is a very bland looking male human (dark hair, dark eyes) wearing a newsie hat and a coat (which has a knife in it, not that he's telling anyone). For those who have met him before, this is Hemlock, as far as anyone would know. The journalist is without his fiddle tonight, moving straight for the table to take a seat, one that doesn't face a door or window. "Hello, Mr. Lowell. Thank you for hosting this. I looked at the Google for this game and I believe I understand the rules, so I may try 'playing a hand'. How are you doing?"

Iria has posed:
Who else is here? Iria, for some reason, has chosen to show up in a limousine craft as well. She looks a little grumpy, but that's her usual expression. She makes her way to the table and nods to anyone she recognizes. When a waitress walks by, she orders a soda.

Nova Terra (6381) has posed:
    Nova doesn't have a lot to do right now. Her technical advisor is going over the data recovered from the last mission so until he finds something, Nova has some free time! And having heard about the poker game, it sounded like a good opportunity.

    Nova is of course dressed for the occasion in her usual tight fitting hostile environment suit (it totally works for ALL occasions). Having arrived via teleport, she makes her way over to what appears to be tonights table, spinning one of the chairs around backwards and sitting down on it. She leans against the chair back and smirks at those already here, "Should be fun!"

Sombra has posed:
    If you're going to a party, why not dress for the occasion? If it's gold, then it's fancy, especially when there are people serving you at said party. So today a certain hacker has switched out her usual gear, weapons and stealth for a red cocktail dress, high heels and jewelry that match the atmosphere. Grabbing a drink from one of the iguana-people, the latina makes her way over to the poker table as she studies the people who have already shown up. This is a time to be social, rub elbows, get some connections... and possibly some intel. Not everything can be done in front of a computer, though that's undeniably easier at times. But sometimes you have to live a little and have fun.

    Sombra does smirk slightly upon spotting certain people she has seen images and videos of. "Hola... this is quite a party, isn't it?" she greets the people at the table.

Lemeza Kosugi (6258) has posed:
Another poker night. Good, so it looks like this will be a regular thing. Last time he was here, Lemeza was able to organize a very useful operation... though tonight, as with before, he's mainly here to relax. He disembarks a limousine and claims his spot at the poker table, ready to place bets and have fun.

And maybe learn just what the heck these Boondollars are. That's been bugging him.

Septette Arcubielle (632) has posed:
     Septette arrives in simple attire- not quite as spartan as her ragged shawl and adventurer's satchel, but not formal either. A simple black tunic, purple cape, and a single white opera glove on her right hand are the most striking parts of her ensemble, though the small black-stemmed white flower in her hairband is rather eye-catching as well. She simply appears with a quiet "pop" alongside the Elites arriving from the shuttles, takes her pick of the snacks, and settles in.

     Hemlock gets an inquisitive look and a wave- she definitely recognizes his voice from the radio. Everyone else here, she recognizes. Her face settles into a perfectly impassive mask as she prods the computer display with one gloved finger. "I suppose it's time to find out what a 'poker face' is. I hope they didn't mean I look like one of these chips."

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne Mace saunters into the casino again, swishing her tail happily. "Evening all." she says, cheerfully. Today she's wearing a black evening dress, almost to the ground that sparkles slightly in the light. She takes her spot at the table and chuckles to Septette. "A poker face is one that doesn't give anything away."

Arthur Lowell has posed:
    "Been DOIN' the way I'm always DOIN'!" Arthur assures Hemlock. "RADICALLY! Get up in this GAME, HOMIE." He waves Hemlock over! Iria gets her soda, though the gender of her weird serving iguana-person is indeterminate. Each person who takes a seat at the table and pokes the... weird... +join thing, will get a stack of brightly colored coins in front of them. The little flickery things have stars, swirls, and other strange symbols on them, but it looks like a fairly simple set of denominations, albeit a bit eye-searingly multicolored.

    Arthur's cards that he's shuffling look a little odd. Shimmery black-and-white with a spirographic design, they gently put off that sense of Magic that makes it seem like they'll likely be cheating-proof... At least, unless someone works towards that in the longer term than just tonight.

Touta Konoe (1143) has posed:
Touta can't remember the last time he's played poker. It's been forever. Truth be told he only played small time poker with his friends back in the boonies. Though all things considered he's not even sure if he'll be allowed to play upon his arrival. He's probably the youngest one here, and it shows on his face.

The moment he'd take at seat at the table the first thing that'd differentiate him from everyone else would probably be the fact that he looked like he was still in middle school. What's more his attire for this night's activities seems...average. There are those who choose to dress up, and those who decide to keep to their usual attire. Touta is the latter of the two groups wearing pretty casual clothing of his own. A red t-shirt, a black gakuren, and a pair of black slacks to top it all off....At least black is supposed to be sleek or something right?

Still while he's excited and eager to play it's debateable whether they'll allow him to play at all if they think he's underaged...Hopefully they just don't care.

"Hey Arthur, it's cool if I play too right?"

Arthur Lowell has posed:
    "Yeah homie, ROLL ON UP in this biz." Arthur waves Touta over encouragingly! "It's a MINIGAME, dog, not a CASINO. You're DOIN' FINE."

Sombra has posed:
    "Perhaps we should all go to a casino together sometime, they can be rather fun," Sombra states to Arthur with a smirk of painted lips before she sips her drink, then looks down at the boondollars in front of her. That's a neat effect to the cards, magic perhaps? It's been a while since she played poker herself, card games were quite common in Los Muertos to pass time. "So what are the rules like, amigo? Any variations?" They are using peculiar coins, so it's prudent to ask.

Staren has posed:
    Staren feels slightly uncomfortable with how ritzy the transport shuttles are, but he was presumably told this would be a fancy party, so he doesn't actually complain. He takes a moment to take in the yacht... It kind of reminds him of Grand Dorado. Not his aesthetic of choice, but... Yeah, just pretend it's like a Concord diplomatic meeting or something.

    Wait, that sounds awful too.

    The catboy steps out of the limo-shuttle, without it occuring to him to tip the driver. He's dressed... NOT in his labcoat! He's wearing a dark blue dress uniform which is decorated with badges for current and past organizations (The Concord, the Union, the Wings of Nemesis, Lazlo Defense Force Tactical Response Unit...) and three campaign ribbons.

    It's enough to /almost/ make him unrecognizeable for a moment, because when the hell ever does Staren dress like that? As he wanders around the boat, though, he sees that others aren't dressed up and feels a bit silly.

    Staren greets the others with a smile and a nod as he grabs some food and makes his way to the table to sit down. "So, to be honest, I've never played poker before," he points at the side of his head, "but I'm looking it up right now."

    He does not seem concerned about boondollars, confident that he has enough.

Arthur Lowell has posed:
    "I used to do some ROBBING on a CASINO back in the day!" Arthur says to Sombra, with a wide grin. "Been AGES since I was around a CASINO since then. Sure, let's get up in that FUN TIME sometime." And hey, there's Staren! "It's COOL, DOG! It's just CASUAL STUFF. Long as you don't try to POT-GRAB or nothin', it's ALL FINE."

Iria has posed:
Meanwhile, Iria looks at the boondollars and scowls a little. "Is this stuff even for real?" She narrows her eyes and glances from side to side. "Maybe some kind of new currency, but I dunno..."

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne Mace looks to Sombra "Texas hold 'em, last time I was here. Hopefully the same again."

Arthur Lowell has posed:
    "It's the REALEST!" Arthur assures Iria, suddenly brandishing tremendous Boonbucks like gold bricks. They flicker and flash gaudily. "Can't believe nobody ACCEPTS 'EM as CURRENCY." Then he does a fancy movement, flicking the cards from one hand to the other in a wide arc, before giving them one final shuffle and raising the whole deck to the air.

    "THE NAME OF THE GAME IS: TEXAS HOLD 'EM!" And the cards are flicked out over the table in a pair of stylish spinning motions!

Iria has posed:
When the cards are dealt, Iria is quick to view hers, then she glares at the others with suspicion. A weird poker face, if one might call it that.

Hemlock (6320) has posed:
"Good to hear you are doing 'radically'." Hemlock says, slightly confused but cheerful nonetheless. "These boondollars are interesting. Are they only to be used in this poker, as a stand-in currency?" He asks, waiting to be dealt, nodding as Arthur answers his question, as his eyes glance around the table. "Oh, hello, Staren. It's good to see you. It's nice to meet you as well, Miss RQBL." He recognizes her voice as well! They've never actually met in person, so it's good to get introductions out of the way.

And then, Hemlock gets his cards. He looks them over carefully, and nods. "Call."

Nova Terra (6381) has posed:
    Nova picks up one of the fabulous chips, looking over it. "Huh." Not what she was expecting. She waits as the cards are dealt, spinning the chip in the air just above her hand. She picks up her cards once they arrive, glances at them for a moment before sending a few chips floating into the center, "Call."

Lemeza Kosugi (6258) has posed:
Lemeza throws a smirk toward Arthur. "Nobody else accepts boondollars because they're unique to your world." Then he turns toward his own cards, and nods slightly at them. He then calls an iguana-server to bring him some sake, for a bit of refreshments.

Staren has posed:
    Staren looks at his cards. How is he even supposed to judge what's good without seeing the community cards? (He just started looking up rules.) After confirming that he has to bet anyway, he slides the minimum number of chips into the pot.

Touta Konoe (1143) has posed:
Touta waits as the cards are passed his way looking over them. He raises an eyebrow if that's suppose to mean anything at all before looking at the bets. He doesn't say much else before giving a brief smile.

"I'll call too."

And like that 500 Boondollars are plopped in on his behalf.

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne Mace looks thoughtful, pushing forward a stack of cards. Her tail lashes quite quickly back and forth behind her. "So how's everyone doing?"

Iria has posed:
Without missing a beat, Iria puts down 500 boondollars with an evil smile. "Let's go for it!"

Septette Arcubielle (632) has posed:
     Septette leans back in her chair- a difficult and delicate maneuver, given that she isn't actually putting any weight on it! Her talons remain fixed on the floor and subtly shift to keep her center of gravity over them. Her bare hand remains in her lap; she tucks her cards behind one of her ear-fins before pushing a few chips across the table with the gloved one. "Call."

Sombra has posed:
    The wide grin from Arthur earns a slight grin back. While she's not directly robbed a casino, it's easy enough to transfer some money to her own accounts without it being traced when she knows how. For now she picks up her two cards and studies them with a passive look on her face. So that's how they're going to play this, huh? Very well. Her eyes glance at Lemeza and his daring bet, though she doesn't say anything, putting out some boondollars of her own onto the table.

Hemlock (6320) has posed:
Hemlock takes another glance at his cards as the number raises. Hm...what to do. Keep playing, raise, or fold. He decides to slide in enough to call, even if his lips ever so slightly turn downwards. "Call."

Nova Terra (6381) has posed:
    Nova smirks a little as the bet goes up again, "Yeah, not going to back out now." She sends more chips floating into the pot.

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne Mace raises an eyebrow at Lemeza "Big spender, eh?" She says, with a smirk. The lashing of her tail suddenly reverses its direction mid-way through a swing. She matches his bet, glancing at her cards.

Touta Konoe (1143) has posed:
Oh? Lemeza raised? Well Touta's not one to back away from a challenge so early. "I'll call." He's eager to see how this first round will go now.

Hemlock (6320) has posed:
"Check." Hemlock says, as it comes around again. He has no reason to raise now of all times.

Nova Terra (6381) has posed:
    Nova looks at the community cards that come down. Then at her own, then shakes her head, "Nah. This battle is just starting." She slides her cards away, "Fold."

Staren has posed:
    Staren looks at the cards, looks at his hand, and stares into space for a moment. "So wait, now we don't even have to bet more for the round to proceed?"

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne Mace is unable to keep a scowl off her face as she throws in her cards in disgust. "Motherfracker." she says, her tail curling around her waist.

Septette Arcubielle (632) has posed:
     "Check." Just like that, the exact second it's her turn. She didn't even look at her hand again- some kind of robot intimidation dealie going on here?

     No, she's just impatient to get up and grab more snacks. What a dork.

Lemeza Kosugi (6258) has posed:
Mildly disgruntled at the cards on the table, Lemeza simply knocks on the table, indicating that he's not betting this round.

Sombra has posed:
    As the community cards are shown Sombra glances at them, clearly remembering her own cards that lie in front of her face down as she doesn't touch them. Instead she raises her glass again, watching as some people fold. Now where's the fun in that? "Events like this are fun... I should run something myself sometime," she states.

Staren has posed:
    Staren watches Arthur deal the card, and shakes his head when it comes to his turn, checking.

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne Mace smirks and looks to Staren. "Ten boondollars says the next card's a five."

Staren has posed:
    Staren blinks at Leyanne. "No bet, I'm pretty sure the chances of that are slim."

Touta Konoe (1143) has posed:
The fourth card is placed down to the table. Looking over the board and then looks to his hand before speaking once it was his turn. "Raising, 500!"

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne Mace nods a little "Fair enough, but it'd be just my luck. A five shows up and I should've sayed in the game."

Lemeza Kosugi (6258) has posed:
From confident to folding. "Yeah I'm gonna back out of this one." Lemeza contents himself with finishing off his sake and asking for another round.

Septette Arcubielle (632) has posed:
     Septette shakes her head once. "Fold." She takes her cards out from behind her ear and sets them down on the table, then contents herself with nibbling ever-so-gingerly on another peanut-butter celery stick.

Hemlock (6320) has posed:
Hemlock frowns sharply at the raise. He wants to keep playing, but this hand isn't friendly to him. "Fold." He slides his cards forward, moving to get a drink and then return to the table once he has it.

Staren has posed:
    Staren nods slightly. "Well, I guess we'll see if you're bluffing or not... Fold."

Touta Konoe (1143) has posed:
Touta watches as the last card hits the table. There's a smile on his face. "I'll bet another 500."

Sombra has posed:
    So down to two players now... Sombra watches Touta with a calm smile crossing her lips, her drink in one hand as she watches him. "You seem awfully confident."

Staren has posed:
    Staren flips his cards over. "All I had was this queen, with the other queen on the table." But now the cards show a six and a ten. "What? They changed?"

Sombra has posed:
    You can't win them all, and this is a battle Sombra doesn't mind losing. So she merely shrugs, then downs her drink before handing the empty glass to one of the iguana-people. More drinks are coming after all, and hey... it's only boondollars. Not that she would be upset over real dollars anyway. "Not bad."

Nova Terra (6381) has posed:
    Nova finishes downing her drink and then looks at her cards. Sure, whatever. She slides some chips over physically this time, "Call."

Touta Konoe (1143) has posed:
Touta won the first hand! Talk about a motivation booster! But the game's not done yet and he plans to keep it going. As the watches the cards get handed out he notices that someone's hand was revealed. Well...That's rough. He'll just pretend he didn't see any of that. "I'll call."

Staren has posed:
    Staren stands. "I'll take this hand to go get some dinner. Back in a bit." He heads off to the refreshment table.

Lemeza Kosugi (6258) has posed:
Lemeza doesn't take long to call the big blind, this round. "Alright, let's see if Arthur's fixed the cards this round."

Septette Arcubielle (632) has posed:
     Septette drinks an entire beer in one go, then politely hands the empty bottle to one of the iguanas and gives it a tentative pat on the head. "Good lizard. Ah- call." She looks a little bit flushed... though anyone sitting next to her, or keen-eyed enough to notice the slight distortions in the air, will realize it's just her cheeks being overheated to the point of turning slightly red.

Nova Terra (6381) has posed:
    Nova watches as the community cards come down. She taps one of her chips on the table for a moment as she thinks. Then decides, "Check." No dice!

Nova Terra (6381) has posed:
    Nova watches closely... Yeah, no. She slides her cards in, "No point in keeping this going." Sure, she could have checked again but she's not bothered to wait around hoping for a miracle.

Touta Konoe (1143) has posed:
Touta can't really say that he can make much of this board one way or the other, and it shows. He's avidly scratching the back of his head and then back at his cards. The board, then back at the cards... "MMmmmmm...I'll check."

Lemeza Kosugi (6258) has posed:
"Raise." Lemeza casually tosses in a few chips as he calls over an iguana patron for another sake.

Sombra has posed:
    A sigh leaves the hacker where she sits, and she leans back in her seat, narrowing her eyes. "Fold." Time to enjoy her beer.

Septette Arcubielle (632) has posed:
     The little robot shakes her head once. "No good. I fold." With that out of the way, she busies herself picking at the inner workings of her bare arm.

Staren has posed:
    Staren returns to the table with a plate of some meats, veggies, and noodles, and a drink, and passes another drink to Septette. "Here. They said it was 'vitality gel' but it's a suspicious shade of red and I think the nakkadile tried to wink at me when he... she? said it."

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne Mace peers at her cards, sipping at her jack and coke. her tail begins to lash back and forth as she raises an eyebrow at Staren, shrugging before calling. "That doesn't sound creepy at all."

Septette Arcubielle (632) has posed:
     Septette takes the drink from Staren with a bright smile, abruptly breaking out of her weird robo-poker-face mien. "Hey, thanks!" She raises it to her lips daintily, and... screws up her face in a scrunch after one sip. "It... it tastes like cherry fruit gushers. Oh my god. Someone made wine from cherry fruit snacks."

Touta Konoe (1143) has posed:
Touta is 2 for 2, how will round 3 go now?! Well only way to find out. "Call." Also he looks towards the others. Wonder if they got any drinks he could have?

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne Mace knocks her knuckles against the table calmly, sipping her drink to watch. "Hmm." Her tail still lashes back and forth behind her

Touta Konoe (1143) has posed:
Touta watches what looks to be a very...Happy mouse? Do mice wag their tails when they're happy? He's not really sure... "I'll just check for now."

Sombra has posed:
    "It appears that you're the big cheese tonight, amigo," Sombra chuckles to Touta as he continues playing. "I'd like to see somebody else win this round. Preferably me."

Nova Terra (6381) has posed:
    Nova yawns for a moment, then pushes her cards in. Moving to lean her head on her arms.

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne Mace's tail lashes back and forth behind her, a little faster now. Otherwise, she maintains a pretty decent poker face, sipping her drink as she raises.

Staren has posed:
    Staren looks at the cards for a long time, asks if raising means another turn, and then calls.

Staren has posed:
    "...It's my turn again?" Staren scrutinizes the cards again. "...Check."

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne Mace looks thoughtful as she browses her cards, and then puts in a bigger raise.

Staren has posed:
    Staren dips a fork into his food and lifts it to his mouth. "Mm, good!" He looks at... however people see the interface. "Hmm... I think it's too possible that they're not bluffing... Wait. What are the probabilities? Four hole cards... 3/4s to the fourth... Subtracted from one... sixty-eight percent? Yeah, fold."

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne Mace looks over at Sombra, tilting her head a little. She stays quiet, tapping her knuckles on the table.

Sombra has posed:
    Another person folding, leaving herself and the mouse it appears. Sombra looks away from the catboy and over to Leyanne, studying her. "Good luck~"

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne Mace grins a little and sips her drink happily, grinning as she gets her money. Then she checks her cards thoughtfully, before calling.

Hemlock (6320) has posed:
Hemlock eventually returns to the table with a drink, moving to play cards again. When his cards are dealt, he glances at them without much emotion, and then moves to speak up. "Call."

Lemeza Kosugi (6258) has posed:
Lemeza casually tosses his cards into the center, folding another hand.

Septette Arcubielle (632) has posed:
     Septette reaches up, plucks the white flower out of her headband, and... eats it? A light smile crosses her face for the first time in a while as she surveys her cards. "I call, sure. Feeling good about this one."

Nova Terra (6381) has posed:
    Nova looks up again to check her cards. She then slides some chips in to match the bet. She then smirks at Septette and says, "I've had nothing but high cards all night."

Staren has posed:
    Staren looks at his cards after they change again, and starts humming the chorus of 'The Ace of Spades' to himself. But is it true, or a bluff? Or just a commentary on the game being played? When his turn comes around, he looks at Arthur. "So I'm Big Blind now? How much do I gotta put in? Hrm..." He grunts slightly annoyedly and reaches for his chips... and then the community is dealt! It looks like he's doing math in his head again for a moment... Then shakes his head. "Too many variables at this point. Alright, let's see where it goes."

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne Mace swishes her tail happily as she watches, pondering what to do. Her swishing tail is... slower than last time.

Touta Konoe (1143) has posed:
Touta looks at his hand and the board once more. "I think I'mma fold'em up again." Lookes like he's had two good rounds and two less than great ones.

Septette Arcubielle (632) has posed:
     Septette regards her hand carefully. Her eyes flash purple for a moment, then... she shakes her head. "I fold." Smart decisions can't compensate for bad luck, it seems! That, or she really is trying to ditch as many boondollars as possible.

Nova Terra (6381) has posed:
    Nova looks up again to check the community cards, then her own and then chuckles dryly, "Another high card hand. That's four in a row. I'm on a roll!" She slides her cards away.

Staren has posed:
    "Where's the next card? Oh, he raised..." He looks at the cards. "Not that likely. Fold."

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne Mace looks thoughtful for a moment, and then calls again. "You're gonna bleed me dry."

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne Mace looks thoughtful at the river as it comes up, then looks at Helmock. Her tail lashes behind her, at a moderate pace, before she checks.

Hemlock (6320) has posed:
Hemlock stares at his cards. He stares at his chips. He considers. "I'm sorry."

And then, he pushes all of his chips into the center. "All-in."

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne Mace looks at Hemlock consideringly for a moment, then pushes her cards away. "Nah."

Hemlock (6320) has posed:
Hemlock considers his cards briefly. He's gotten a big pot recently, so he can safely play a little risky. "Call."

Nova Terra (6381) has posed:
    Nova would not be surprised if the right cards continued to evade her. But she's willing to see the hand through a little more, sliding her chips in, "Call."

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne Mace looks thoughtful, scanning over the card. Then she shakes her head, pushing har cards forward. "Nah."

Touta Konoe (1143) has posed:
Touta seems more active than he was the last two turns, looking over his hand for a moment. He doesn't say anything but he's got a bit of a smile going on. "I'll just check."

Septette Arcubielle (632) has posed:
     Septette glances at the cards on the table, seems to do some kind of mental arithmetic, then nods once. "I call." ... Is there a hint of a smile? Probably just the light.

Nova Terra (6381) has posed:
    Nova looks at her cards, looks at the community cards, looks at Septette... Then smirks, pushing all her chips in, "All in."

Staren has posed:
    Staren hmms. Then hmmms again. "Likewise." He pushes his chips over.

Touta Konoe (1143) has posed:
Touta's kinda surprised at everyone just throwing all thier money in. That being said... "Yeah, I'll fold this hand too."

Septette Arcubielle (632) has posed:
     Septette glances over at Staren, cards tucked securely behind one ear-fin once more. "And I calculate roughly 27 percent odds that I'll have a definitively winning hand here. Things are unlikely to look up further for me either... all in."

Hemlock (6320) has posed:
"No." Hemlock says as others raise and go all in, and places his card on the table. "I fold."

Nova Terra (6381) has posed:
    Nova just leans her head back down to rest, waiting for the results of her victory.

Staren has posed:
    A flicker of concern passes over Staren's face, but he doesn't comment.

Septette Arcubielle (632) has posed:
     Septette shrugs, rolling her shoulders. She seems fairly resigned.

Staren has posed:
    Staren nods. "I thought 'three of a kind' was three of the same suit. Whoops."

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne Mace chuckles, looking at the pot, and her position in the table. "We ready to rock?"

Nova Terra (6381) has posed:
    Nova is a little surprised she has anything left after that round. But it does look like she won the side pot so that's something. She checks her new cards and then pushes some chips in, "Call."

Staren has posed:
    Staren looks at the screen. "That one win put me in second place? Yeesh." He looks at the cards curiously, then just smiles and shrugs at his turn and puts in the minimum bet.

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne Mace looks thoughtful, browsing over her cards for a moment. Then she raises calmly, her tail lashing behind her at a steady, moderate pace.

Touta Konoe (1143) has posed:
Touta was still somehow in the lead? Wow, that was a surprise to him. Though as he sees his hand now and looks as Leyanne raises the pot he has to stop and think for a second. A few seconds. "I'll call!"

Staren has posed:
    Staren watches play pass around the table, raising eyebrows at Leyanne's raise, which he... inexplicably doesn't have to follow? "Hmm... Alright, I'll give it a try."

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne Mace looks at her cards, then checks. "Hm." she mutters, her tail swishing quietly behind her, slowly.

Nova Terra (6381) has posed:
    Nova is just kicking back, relaxing. She grabs a handful of snacks and starts munching as she watches the round go around.

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne Mace looks thoughtful, then calls checks again, cautiously. Mouse isn't happy, but while it's not costing her to stay in the game, she might as well.

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne Mace looks thoughtful, then checks again. She's somewhat sure she's lost this one, but there's no point dropping out of the game now.

Nova Terra (6381) has posed:
    Nova was expecting to be nowhere near the winner... That was a surprise! Nova's eyes go a little wide at the sight of the other hands, but then just shakes her head with a smile. She proceeds to stand, going off to get another drink, her parting words, "Good play."

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne Mace takes a few moments to recover from the four-way showdown, laughing quietly. "Were we -all- trying to out-bluff eachother?" she says, laughing as she calls

Staren has posed:
    Staren shrugs. "After the first two bets it cost me nothing to stay in."

Touta Konoe (1143) has posed:
Touta is dying. He's immortal and he's dying. He didn't think there was any chance of winning with a highcard...But he wins with the high card! It's so random that it's hilarious. By the time it's his go again he's only just settled down, with tears swelling up from the laughter. "Alright...I'm...Calling." He says inbetween breathes.

Lemeza Kosugi (6258) has posed:
After the shenanigans of the last hand, and probably influenced by his seventh sake, Lemeza shoves all his chips into the pot. "All in. If a bad hand can win it, I might as well!"

Staren has posed:
    Staren looks at the cards, sticking his tongue out slightly. "Down to four before the fold's even dealt..." He shakes his head. "Fold."

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne Mace laughs "I'm in, let's see the flop." She grins, her tail swishing behind her.

Touta Konoe (1143) has posed:
"Well, guess I don't have too much to lose!" He follows suite with his bet.

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne Mace blinks a little at the cards that fall before her, her tail swishing slightly faster now. She pushes a raise forward

Staren has posed:
    Staren hmms. "Two of a kind..." He flips over the seven of hearts. "It'll be embarassing if you bluffed on a high card."

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne Mace nods "It would indeed." She agrees, scanning over her cards. her tail slows slightly, but she raises.

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne Mace continues to swish her tail, tapping her knuckles on the table. "Hm."

Staren has posed:
    Staren smiles as he looks between his cards and the Community.

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne Mace laughs "Indeed, we are." she laughs, smirking. "Now let's see..."

Staren has posed:
    Staren considers. He looks at people's chips. And then slides 3700 into the pot. "Your move."

Hemlock (6320) has posed:
Hemlock considers the bet. He considers his cards. He matches the bet. "Call. You're not going to scare me off that easily."

Hemlock (6320) has posed:
Hemlock smiles at his cards, and pushes his chips into the center. "As I promised, all-in."

Staren has posed:
    Staren smiles slightly as his bet is matched, then his eyes widen when Hemlock goes all-in (and the poker machine skips his turn). He considers for a moment, then: "You're tryin' ta bluff me out." He pushes all his chips into the pot, for the second time.

Touta Konoe (1143) has posed:
Touta somehow was able to win another round cause of a high card. Though now everyone was going all in. So he could really in kind only say, "Call!"

Staren has posed:
    Staren is surprised to see a flush on the table! "Ooooooooooohh! Well-done, I was overconfident. Or, you were incredibly lucky, really, to get a flush. But that's the game. I thought I was baiting you out of your chips, but you were baiting me." He leans over the table and extends a hand to Hemlock to shake.

Hemlock (6320) has posed:
Hemlock smiles softly, nodding to Staren. "In the end, it's a game about bluffing more than luck, it'd seem. Good game." He accepts the shake of the hand, lightly shaking it, before pulling back and collecting his chips. "I'm done. It's been a night. Thank you, everyone. I've enjoyed this 'poker' very much."

Leyanne Mace has posed:
Leyanne Mace chuckles "Well played, everyone. I am going to go to sleep." She chuckles, standing and heading towards the bedrooms. "G'night."

Arthur Lowell has posed:
    And with that... It looks like the game is done! With Hemlock heading out, only TOUTA KONOE is left! Arthur raises both hands dramatically, causing all the boondollars in the game to rise dramatically, and then foists a tremendous stack of coins directly onto the vampire! "And TOUTA fuckin' ACES it! GEE GEE, yo! And that's it for TONIGHT!" He strikes a dramatic pose, firing off fireworks over the deck of the yacht! "Get those SNACKS and those CHATS, 'cause POKER NIGHT is DONE today!"

Touta Konoe (1143) has posed:
Touta is surprised when the last round finishes. He loses but ends up still in the game and then...The winner calls it quits?! That was a bit of an upset. He kinda wishes Hemlock would stay to continue but you gotta due what you gotta do. THEN Arthur dowses him with coins! He's drowning. But as he is he at least has to say something. "Guys! That was awesome! We definitely got to do this again sometime! Also thanks for having me again Art- Whoaaaaa!!!!"
