Amazing Coincedences

The first place I ever played Online Poker was at My father and I shared an online sportsbook account at and I used that to set up a poker account. I think I just played free games to see what the software was like. The account name I set up was DougleBogey. When I decided I wanted to play for real money I set up my own account, and picked the name DuggleBogey. I wanted the same name, but had to pick something different, so I picked something as close as I could think of.

Eventually the poker craze caught up to my father, and he logged into IntertopsPoker, and it already had my screen name in it. My father doesn't really care about nicknames and whatnot, so he just played it. He's not doing to badly for a beginner.

Fast forward to tonight. I'm in the $2005 Freeroll, and unbeknownst to me, he is also playing. He takes a bad beat when his aces are beaten by 26. When my table breaks up it puts me IN THE EMPTY SEAT HE WAS IN. There are over 1000 people in this tournament, and I filled his spot, and it FREAKED OUT the whole table. They thought it was a rebuy freeroll or something.

Pretty damn funny.
