"Let Me Tell You a Little Story"

Level 2 : 200-400, 0 ante

The PokerNews desk is right in front of `table 353, and as you could read in an earlier post that is where JC Tran, Tyler Bonkowski and Mike Thorpe are sitting. We aren't complaining about our seat since Thorpe tries to get some banter going, right from the first hand he played.

"Who's the guy in the f***ing dinosaur suit?" Thorpe asked the table about the player in seat five, who is actually wearing a dinosaur suit. His name is Michael Winnett. After being chatty in the first level Mister Dinosaur cooled down, and has been awfully silent ever since Thorpe arrived.

"You cannot say that word at the table sir," the dealer kindly informed Thorpe about the use of the F-word.

"Let me tell you a little story," Thorpe said as he directed himself at the dealer. "I've actually been in the Navy for six years so I have a sailors mouth, it's okay."

"So are you my biggest nightmare," Thorpe continued as the dealer said he was just stating the rules. "You are not allowed to direct it at a player," the next dealer said, and Thorpe happily agreed to that.

"So what do we have here, one crazy guy and a dinosaur?"

"Where did you actually get that suit? In the dinosaur section at Walmart?"

"I think you're like, emotionally unstable," Thorpe went on and on against his opponent who was a lot more interested in the Celtics/Heat game on the TV across from their table.

"I think you don't like that he's stealing your attention," JC Tran finally said after listening to the whole thing for about five minutes. "That could be true, that could be true," Thorpe added always looking to have the final word. We expect big things from this table as Thorpe seems to be his usual self.
