#77 – Poker Nights

3 02 2010

While the bogan is generally characterized by its mindless consumerism and ill-informed gambling, it does face one significant problem; scarce income. The bogan, despite having increased its earning capacity significantly over recent decades via interest-free education loans and a booming economy, still has an extraordinary ability to live beyond its means. This includes going so heavily into debt that credit cards cease to work properly.

At this point, the bogan, unable to buy the clothes it wants, or go to the bars it wants to colonise, or gamble during the Spring Carnival of horse racing, needs some other form of entertainment. While house parties can go some way to dealing with these problems, they can greatly diminish the chances of attracting a bogan of the other gender. There tends to be the need to speak to other people at house parties, as distinct from the occasionally muffled yell at one another before subtly groping each other in a darkened, cavernous room.

Suddenly, with the advent of pay TV – and later digital TV – a new bogan paradigm began to emerge: poker. The Poker World Championships were aired on ESPN and later Channel One, a delicious slice of the tension that exists during professional poker matches. As the bogan male has a preternaturally created belief that it is the greatest gambler on Earth, there was an automatic swarm of bogans to the casino – which had handily been built in the past decade or so – where they could embrace a game they felt they could ‘beat the house’ at. Despite the fact that the house doesn’t really play.

Upon realizing that poker at the casino tended to last about thirty minutes before their coffers were empty, the bogan quickly realised that its $300 could be better invested in a 1,000-chip poker set that comes with playing mat, chip rake and dice (bogans have not, to this day, figured out what the dice are for). This way, the bogan can embrace playing poker in the safety of its own home, can buy foreign-label beer at a far lower cost, and live out the dream of luxury, James-Bond style debauchery (without the luxury, women or sex) – all for about $40 each.

Even better, the bogan love of celebrity can be catered to via this manner also, as Joe Hachem, former World Poker Tour Champion, was just an ordinary guy from the working class northern suburbs of Melbourne who now has his own TV show. That he had to win an international tournament is, to the bogan, a minor bump on the path to national television stardom. All starting in the loungeroom of Andrew’s house up the road. However, being ‘x-treme‘, the bogan manages to lose all his money within 20 minutes (and five Coronas – with lime), as only pussies and fags fold when they have pocket cards of 6 and 2 off suit.

People have been playing poker for a whole lot longer than bogans in recent times. Add to that most professional players are nothing like bogans.

Swing and a miss with this one. Very big miss.

You’ve underlined our point, and then told us that we missed the point. Hmm. TBL

3 02 2010
James

Not so sure about that Rob. This is entirely anecdotal, but every single bogan I know has latched on to the poker craze with both hands. Just because it once was non-bogan, or predates bogans, will not prevent bogans taking it up. As has been well established on this site, once a thing becomes edgy, bogans appropriate it for themselves, and rob it of any edge it might once have possessed.

LOL. It’s the hallmark of the bogan, TBL: an inability to understand what’s written or to make a sensible analysis of it once done – or both. Future topic perhaps?

What are the chances that Rob has a fold-away poker table and a nice shiny briefcase of chips???

X-treme

Just a point – I think the hand you were referring to was 7,2 off suit, or the “Beer hand” (Either it’s time to fold and go get one or if you play it you must have had too many of them)

Did you actually read the article, Rob?

I went to one of these once against my will. Was in a friends car and as we got closer to Gladstone Park hotel I almost jumped out of the moving car…

3 02 2010

Dinner at a mutual friends in Essendon. It wasn’t until I was encased in the car that i was told of a change of plans. This was to keep me from pulling out I’d say…

I’m not looking forward to the day NaBs work out how to merge gambling and chess.

3 02 2010
AJ

done- put a value on each piece. when one bogan takes a piece off the other bogue he/she recieves the corresponding value from thei opponent. Sadly for the bogue chess will be far too hard to ever learn completely.

I can hear them now – “So what is the difference between a rook and a castle?”

And theratened masculinity once they realise the queen is the most powerful piece on the board, the king the weakest.

Because someone can name the pieces on the board doesn’t make them an idiot savant. Normal people have played chess for millenia to learn tactical and strategic thinking.

3 02 2010

A J please say it isnt so! I love chess, however it is getting increasingly difficult to find a worthy opponent and I find it punishing to teach a halfwitted idiot to play the game.

3 02 2010
Nelson Esq

The Chav has already ruined chess. Apparently in England there is Chess-Wrestling; 3 minutes of chess followed by 3 minutes of wrestling and repeat. Chess nerds love it because if they can defeat the 6ft muscular meathead in the first 3 minutes of chess, it saves them from getting shit kicked out of them. Meatheads love it, because if they survive the first round, they get to kick the shit out of a nerd in the wrestling and can declare that they beat a nerd in chess.

LOL. Interestingly, Joe Hachem’s poker lifestyle was (initially, and perhaps ongoing) funded from a large insurance payout he received for his “bad back”, thereby becoming a bogan hero on two fronts.

3 02 2010
Jasper

My sources tell me it was an income protection claim, so he was receiving a monthly benefit. It was due to a hand condition which prevented him working as a chiropractor.

Despite the fact he received massive publicity and declared himself a professional poker player he did attempt to keep the claim going as the condition prevented him from working. I’m told the claim was closed at that point

3 02 2010
Fiona of Toorak

LOL. Happy to be corrected on the details. The substance stands, however – as I’m sure you’ll agree.

Can you please do a post on Pandora charm bracelets?

I feel as though that the nouveau bogues are tarnishing the Pandora image.

One of us has been investigating this trend. We’ll do an entry on it once we figure out how to make it witty. TBL

Peter of Kensington

“once we figure out how to make it witty. TBL”

How about:
1. create a foolish reason for purchasing the item
2. assign this motive to the ‘Bogan’
3. ridicule the ‘Bogan’ for being foolish
4. ?????
5. profit.

Not bad. Probably still leave it to us, though. TBL

South Park is a terrifically satirical show.

TBL – “However, being ‘x-treme‘, the bogan manages to lose all his money within 20 minutes (and five Coronas – with lime), as only pussies and fags fold when they have pocket cards of 6 and 2 off suit.”

This is so true…
I’ve (hangs his head in shame…) attended a few of these winner-takes-all poker nights, and been quite successful, for the above quoted reason…

Patience and slow drinking will earn big rewards at a Bogan poker night…

3 02 2010
Nelson Esq

My brother told me a tale where a bogan mate of his went to one of these suburban poker nights and one bogan suggested turning it into ‘High Stakes Poker’. The other less-proficient bogan poker players started to see easy dollar signs and agreed to up the ante. When someone lost a couple of weeks worth of wages and felt that he had been had, tempers flared, accusations of cheating prevailed and fists start flying.

3 02 2010
Loftie

Possible common solution to all bogue-issues??
Fists start flying…

Wonder if that would stand up in court?

Judge: Your defence Shayne?
Bogan: I’ll punch your f#cking lights out maite, thats bullsh!t…

And so it goes on….

3 02 2010
Robbie

I know of someone who’s bucks night was centered around the “poker/gambling/high roller theme” – they thought it would be ‘high class’ by dressing in 1920’s/gangster attire with the token stripper dressed as a 1920’s hooker….I don’t know what was more bogan, the poker theme or the fact that there was a theme to start with.

3 02 2010
Indi

I think the ill-considered themed party precedes any individual theme as a sign of boganity.

Having said that, I’ve been invited to a ‘Celebrity’ themed child’s birthday. One can choose one’s friends, but not one’s family. Tempting to go in fake tan and a micro-dress, stagger about, vomit, and leave.

3 02 2010
Lis

I would pay to see that, Indi. If you do, at least get video footage for us.

3 02 2010

Please do and send us the photos, take along 20 random children from various nations and you can be bogan icon Ange.

3 02 2010
Indi

Sadly, I’m old-fashioned enough to believe that a private party is just that.

3 02 2010
Loftie

Indi – which celebrity does that then make you???
There are too many to choose from with that description…

Fake tan, Micro Dress, Stager, Spew, Leave un announced…

Could be any female trash/celeb ???
Narrow it down?

PS – Wonder if any kids will dress up as Suri Cruise, with high heels and stylish handbags…. all the celeb kids are doing it…

3 02 2010
Indi

I know, I didn’t narrow the field. I like Li-Lo as a name, replete with innuendo as it is.

I promise a verbal account Monday.

3 02 2010
Loftie

My kids were watching a daytime crappy movie on the weekend and a young Li-Lo was the main actor… it was about a barbie-type doll that came to life…

Anyways – Li-Lo would have been about 12 (tops)… I wonder if the path for her destiny was set this long ago… Looking at her freckled face and bright red hair… who’d have thought she’d have to resort to being a wasted floozy to make it in hollywood…

Americana creeping. Playing cribbage, Euchre, 500, or even Bridge would be closer to their grand-sires.

3 02 2010
Nelson Esq

Indi, do you really think a bogan would know what a cribbage board looked like? Most likely they’ve never heard of the game anyway. Teach him the rules of cribbage and he’d snicker all night at the term ‘1 for the Jacks nob’

Bogans wouldn’t be interested in cribbage, 500, Euchre or Bridge as they’d be considered old farts games. Give them the board game version of ‘Talkin ’bout My Generation’. Nah, fuck that, it’s easier to just watch it on telly instead!

And don’t even bothering to mention Mah-Jong to a bogan…ma-fucken-what?

3 02 2010
Indi

Yeah, bidding and remembering, considering your partner’s hand – what was I thinking? Misere would be a nice name for a girl.

3 02 2010
Nelson Esq

I can hear her bogan boyfriend telling her “Lay down Misere..”

3 02 2010
Indi

The Biggest Loser. There is something poetic about the Open Misere hand- the flip of the switch to deliberately lose. I’m a mediocre player, but have pulled it off twice. Almost making up for trumping partners’ . . .

Too shameful.

3 02 2010
west_melb_anitbogan

Misere spelt Myziere would be more appropriate for a name 😉

Cribbage isa great game, played it with my uncles on long summer holidays down at Lake Illawarra, in the days when the whole family would go camping for a month over Xmas.

Long lazy days at the beach with Cousins followed by nights of prawning in the Lake followed by late night games of cribbage under gas lighting. Being the flasher part of the family we didn’t camp, but had holiday flats on the other side of the Lake that we owned.

No electricity, not electronic gadgets (this was the early 70’s) at these campsites used by my family.

Can trace the first flourishings of anti-boganism from that time. As a 12 y.o. boy at the camping area, hanging with the other kids, heard a bloke come out of his caravan and proudly proclaim to his neighbour, just got all 4 Sydney channels to work. I thought, why go away to a camping area and then immediately connect up TV?

Oh the innocence of youth.

3 02 2010
Indi

I know the past is usually viewed through rose-tinted glasses but that’s a time and place for which nostalgia is justified.

The same can be said for the very old-fashioned Australian (working-class?) values you describe. Nothing too flash, but comfortable. How anti-nouveau bogan is that?

3 02 2010
west_melb_anitbogan

Yeah – the antithesis on NaB I would submit. Very working class values, beach, fishing, prawning, reading (god forbid), entertainment for the kids from the CSSM (so christian bible bashers who had a big tent and chinese lantern night, where we all set fire to the lanterns)

And the cribbage was a fkn cracker 🙂 Using matches to score on the home made rectangular cribbage board.

Think I am going to have a cry 🙂

3 02 2010
Indi

Family evenings where you make eye contact not during an ad-break? What’s the point?

I have a triangular brass cribbage board my grandfather made. He was a classic example of that generation and its virtues. A boilermaker on first name basis with the managers of the whole facility at Whyalla. The first generation of his German family not to go to university for a few centuries, but happy with his lot.

3 02 2010
Nelson Esq

Coincidentally, my family always seemed play cribbage on camping holidays as well. I remember a trip to Shoalhaven Heads where a couple of bogans in a pair hotted up Mazda RX-4’s rocked up with their girlfriends and pitched their tents next to ours. They were your typical ‘instant arsehole, just add alcohol’ type of bogans and were loud and obnoxious. Although they took great pleasure in verbally degrading their girlfriends to their faces, it didn’t stop the girls allowing their boyfriends to have loud sex with them in their tents while my family were trying to play cribbage next door, under gas light. I kept laughing at the bogans shagging noises, upsetting my mother and she snapped at me, ‘Stop laughing and play the game!’ My younger brother who was still somewhat innocent asked “Are they having sex?”, getting my mother more agitated.
The rain pelted down hard that night which flooded out the bogans 2-man tents. Very early next morning they literally picked up their drenched tents, still filled with sleeping bags etc and stuffed them into the boots of their cars and drove off. My mother was rather releived.

3 02 2010
west_melb_anitbogan

“I kept laughing at the bogans shagging noises”

I can imagine. Bogans rutting like pigs, in the mistaken belief that a millimetre of nylon makes their sweating groping fondling coitus in the dark impervious to the outside world would be cause for much mirth and merriment.

Feel sorry for your mothers embarrassment though

3 02 2010
Indi

At least they are usually brief, though not the soul of wit.

3 02 2010
Nelson Esq

Thanks w_m_a-b for your post which rekindled that memory for me. That was the night my parents actually taught us to play cribbage for the first time and we used match sticks on our board as well!

I remember it well because my mother had made a big deal of teaching us how to play cribbage. When she became so upset at me laughing and not concentrating on the game, she threatened to stop the game and send us to bed with a book!

And don’t worry about Mum, she got over it! In fact she and my father are camping somewhere right now…I wonder where the shagging bogans are at this moment…

3 02 2010

Telling Jaydyn and Braydyn to shut the fuck up before they get a fucken floggin down at the local Westfield, is my bet.

On a plane from Sydney to Canberra recently, I was seated next to a woman reading a book called “Crystal Ally Cards: The Crystal Path to Self-Knowledge”.

http://www.insight-books.com/DVN3/9780962191015/0962191019.html?PHPSESSID=a1c5b1d6bd5442387744c467bcf69e4d

Not sure that the whole idea rests on the soundest ontological basis, but it is good to see that someone is serving the metaphysical community. Also not sure if this new-agey stuff is bogan or not, but I am certain there is some overlap between the inhabitants of McMansions and the metaphysical community.

3 02 2010
James

My favourite quote: that the crystal ally cards that come with this book help you by “[creating] dynamic energetic tools for inner exploration!”

3 02 2010
Nelson Esq

do the dynamic energetic tools come with batteries?

3 02 2010

Can’t imagine they would be too dynamic or energetic without some sort of power source.

“Also not sure if this new-agey stuff is bogan or not,” Surely you jest? Dreamcatchers or animal guides if you’re not a Native American? Bogus at the very least – and that’s a syllable shift away from . . .

3 02 2010
James

To be honest, I really can not say how I would class new-agey stuff Indi. I like to differentiate between bogans and wankers, and my feeling is that new-agey stuff falls on the wanker side.

That said, being a wanker by no means precludes one from being a bogan.

3 02 2010
Indi

The Border is full of old-school bogans driving Jurassic-era Datsuns- 120Y and 180Bs – with dreamcatchers hanging from the rear-vision mirror. The paint jobs are studies in the action of sun, hail and minor accidents over time. Collecting those cars as they are finally discarded and assembling them in an array would be a great art project.

3 02 2010
James

A lot of the council housing in my area of Canberra have dreamcatchers in the windows, alongside those upside-down pentagrams. Many have 4 cylinder cars with frangipani stickers alongside stickers proclaiming that “Magic Happens” or something to do with wicca, whatever that is.

Now I know that they are probably bogans.

Aside from walking around construction sites, I don’t see much contemporary Bogan ‘culcha’ (allthough after walking around 1 construction site, I see enough)
Hanging out with my Church friends, I’m more inclined to play taboo, or pictionary than to get stuck into some guitar hero or frivolity.
Some characters I know in the dutch reformed community like to play card games, all the while under the guise of a young people’s bible study.

Toddo,

3 02 2010

I can comment on the Bogan fascination with New Ageism. From my observations, it is more of an old school Bogan thing, something for the ‘missus’ to do during the day outside of their walk to chicken treat and back.
Some of it seems to coincide with the need to wear black and purple so they can appear slimmer.
The incense ritual is really just something to cover up the dope smell that lurks within the shag pile carpet.

3 02 2010
Indi

The hippy/bogan Venn Diagram awaits.

3 02 2010
Sam

A hippy/old school bogan Venn Diagram would show that the majority of New Age Bogans would be in the intersection.

You could also put a Nerd circle in there too, following from Simon of South Yarra’s comment. In this case the New Age Bogan would live in all intersections apart from the Nerd/Hippy.

3 02 2010
reparty

Hmmm….back in the day (pre-pokies) one could go to several locations in Adelaide and play Gin Rummy in a slightly seedy atmosphere. The fun of coming out of some gelati store at 3 am smelling like an ashtray was immense, and the whole “playing cards with some slightly shady ethnic types” was fun. Bogan, yes. But I’d trade 100 poker nights at the local for one night of fun like that.

I like the signage of “Liquor in front, Poker in rear” that can be found in close proximity to most poker nights with the bogan showing off a clever (?) play on words.

That is too close to the mullet ‘business at the front party in the rear’ for coincidence

Eh, I’m a big fan of TBL but this didn’t ring true at all I’m afraid.

I think these poker shows can be a bit on the mainstream side but poker nights are actually awesome, and I didn’t realise bogans actively participated in them.

Also, bogans drink Coronas with lemon as far as I’m aware (in Mexico they drink it with lime).

I can think of a bunch of other things that would be much better to include in the TBL list… Ministry of Sound, Jug O’Clock at the local, Bogan music festivals (as oppsoed to ruining good festivals), tangerine tans & massive glasses…

I’ve been to Mexico. Nobody drinks Corona. Even Mexican bogans won’t touch the stuff.

The “poker culcha” is alive and well…. and usually dressed up with topless waitresses to boot 🙂 It’s actually very popular for guys to have poker parties and have a topless girl either be the dealer or waitress for the night.

So yes they do get to attract the opposite sex………………….. if they’re willing to employ the services of them! hahaha
