Archeologists Uncover Evidence Of Post Flop Play

Melted Felt today break the poker blogging mould once again - an no we are not thinking Athletes Foot - we are actually bringing you a post from the far future.... 1000 years onwards no less.

Yes, dear Melted Felt readers, it was unvelied today the 24th September 3010, that archeologists working on some 1000 year old sites in the New North Mexico (once known as the 'USA' - pronounced 'You-Ess-Ayy', not 'Oousaar') discovered some very disturbing evidence of a mass existinction of post-flop poker players dated somewhere around 2003 or 2004.

When mapped onto the known mitochonrial groupings it appears that the divergence of Homo Sapiens into serapate species at the poker tables did not lead to equilibrium and harmony as expected... evidence strongly indicates that we saw a complete breakdown in post-flop play starting in 2004 with the sub-species of Homo Handreadience finally dying out by 2006. At this point in the records show a dramatic increase in Homo Pushmonkiens and Homo Shortstackiens in the poker world to the point where the former species either had to move to the Pot-Limit Omaha tables or die out completely.

While the fossils and retreived data samples only allow us to hypothesise about how and why post-flop play so suddenly and dramatically disappears there does seem to be a strong causal link with the introduction of genetic mutations causing people to quote ICM numbers, 5-bet light in multi-table tournaments and spend 14 hours a day grinding 12 tables in order to get a rebate on some of the money they paid poker sites for the honor of getting part of it back.

The dig will now continue into the layer of history known as 'Those good old days on Party when you could make a living grinding playing just 12 minutes a day'. We will of course bring you more news as it is uncovered....

Great Article, I couldn't agree more. It seems like post flop is less and less a part of the game, particularly in Sit-n-go's and MTT's; it's kind of sad.
