How I got my Three3333 poker name.

As you probably already know I go a long way back. Born during the 2nd world war when we were still getting bombed by Germany. I was about 3 years old when the first and second atomic bombs were dropped on Japan. was six years old when the four minute mile was broken. I watched the moon landing and could go on and on but it has nothing to do with how I got the name three so here we go.

In the late 1960s every little town had a Night Club and every Night Club had a casino.

I for as long as I can rember played cards games of one sort or annother but the only game in town was "three card brag". I was handy with a pack of cards, Card manipiulation and slight of hand and didnt hide the fact to my friends. We played brag at every opotunity.

Being handy with the cards I worked my way into a croupiers job at our local Bingo Hall they had one Blackjack table and one Roulette table. It was great, going to work in a dinner suit, who could wish for more and I got wages and tips. I was in heaven.

I moved on from the bingo hall to our local night club in Chester-le-Street. It was called the Carousel it was jointly owned by an tripple enterprise group of Show people.

While working in the casino I became very popular showing my card skills off to anybody and everybody so I became well known to the management and the customers who were always asking me to show the how to do a particular trick. And if any personallities wanted a private table of there own, one to one with the croupier I was selected by the management as the Croupier, I was also asked to stay late to deal for the private poker games mostly seven card stud. I got some great tips too.

One particular night the three owners and some of there guests were in the club and the Casino manager asked me to deal one to one with a guest of the owner. This guest was Dennis Stafford. One month later he was charged with the Murder of Angus Sibbit. The film Get Carter was based on that incident. I could say more but I think I should stop there regarding that.

Anyway to get back to my name three. On one of the times I was invited to deal poker for a celebity and other players they were short of a player and asked if I wanted to play. So I agreed. The rest of the croupiers chipped in with some cash and I bought into the game. To cut a long story short I hit quad threes three times during that session I won a small fortune. From that day on the celebrity would ask for three to deal and it stuck like glue. Until I moved onto bigger better times. But thats annother Story.

Fascinating tale three. You should post this on Sky forum in GPC. I can think of a certain Sky poker institution who would probably love this story.
