Remembering A True Gentleman In The Game Of Life

“Handsome” Eddie LeFrancois went by numerous nicknames on the online poker felt; RocketManAA, RagsTriches, and MakeABuck to name a few. But whichever nickname he was using, Eddie would find a game if you needed one, usually free and usually with huge payouts. He was a member of hundreds of poker forums/sites and knew almost every game in “town.” He was easy to talk to, always had fantastic stories, and was always up for having some fun.

That is why it is tough to hear that Eddie passed away last week, after a long battle with cancer. It is someone we will never forget. And to remember Eddie, we wanted to share some stories of his escapades.

I woke up this morning at 4:30 AM and was still half asleep and thought I would play a little Black Jack with that $51.00 I had won last night on AP. I was still in a daze and hit the wager button for $50.00 on one hand by mistake and lost it all! Oh well, Easy come, easy go!

Here’s an example of Karma for you! I didn’t scream, bitch or holler when I lost my connection and that $18.00 at PokerStars and I sat at another 5 card draw cash table about 30 minutes later and I won $31.00 more dollars in about 4 hands. LOL.

I went to the slot parlor to play again yesterday. Five minutes after I got there I won $850.00 on a machine. Then I hit one another one for $480.00. I went on to play yet another and lost a bit and then played the one on the side of it and cashed it out for $200.00. I played video Black Jack with 5 other players, minimum bet was 5.00 but I was wagering $20.00 to $100.00 per hand and cashed out with $300.00…I was playing a fruit matching and jackpot symbol slot I love, That’s the same as the first machine where I won the $850. I lost $40.00 and had 5 minutes left until it was time to leave , so I decided to put $20.00 more in and was betting .50 cents a line for 5 lines for a total bet of $5.00 per spin and I hit all the JACKPOT symbols in a row for a win of $3200.00! I then went home with a very fat wallet. Good thing I didn’t listen to you and quit playing this weekend.

He truly was an awesome, unique and incredibly handsome man with lots of great stories. We shall always remember you, Eddie!

    Just to reiterate, Eddie was a top man, funny guy, clever man, good friend and is missed. I still want to know his secret to blackjack winning at the casino
