A New Level

At some point earlier this year, I mentioned a Level Zero play by one of our home game players.  As we all know, Level One is only thinking about your own cards without a second thought to what your opponent may be holding.  Level Zero is when you don’t even know what you have in your own hand, by either misreading your hole cards or simply forgetting them.

Well, after last night, we have a new Level.

It’s Level Minus One.

The scene is a G-Vegas medium game and about 5 players are in the pot.  Post-flop, it’s checked around to Teddy Ballgame.  Teddy says, “Oh no fellas, no free cards.  I bet $7.”

Problem is, Teddy was unaware that he had folded pre-flop.
