How you doin people?
Comedy and drama are the pillars of our society, and what better way to define these pillars than to remember one of the greatest sitcom of all times. ‘Oh my god !’ yes, F.R.I.E.N.D.S is back with a version 2.0 and no, ‘ we were not on a break !’. Let’s ‘Pivot’ our imaginations a little, and create a scenario in our minds of our beloved cast of F.R.I.E.N.D.S in a “Poker Tournament” organized at Central Perk, with all of them strangers to each other and ready to play the game of their lives! And ofcourse, Gunther is the dealer and guess who will be his first choice as the Big Blind, Rachael! Ross too has a crush on Rachael and he sits next to her, making him the Small Blind. Phoebe is just happy to be there. Joey has his eyes on the muffins kept on the counter! Monica is competitive as usual and just wants to win the game and Chandler is trying to cut the tension by his sarcastic jokes and the only person laughing at them is Joey!
The game has begun and now let’s scrutinize the game play of each person
Monica- She is person who is focused the most on the game. She is so competitive that sometimes she even goes violent if her hole cards and community cards do not result in a perfect 5 card deck! She is also the loudest person on the table and shouts after every round she wins!
Chandler- Chandler is the richest guy on the table who raises so much money in every round that the other members find it pensive to even cope with. Whenever he doesn’t have a good set of cards, he passes a sarcastic joke which makes it too obvious for the other players!
Joey- He is the only person on the table who hasn’t understood the rules of poker! He came to table to play just because they were serving Pizza as a refreshment. He is constantly borrowing money from Chandler to play but his acting skills make him quite a bluff master! Half of his mind is also in protecting his slice of Pizza, as ‘Joey doesn’t share food!’
Ross- Ross just came to the table to approach Rachael, and invites her for the Poker Tournament! So his entire game is focused on the motive of impressing Rachael. He starts telling everyone about the origins of Poker, which everybody frowns at and ultimately tell him to stop!
Phoebe- Phoebe knows about poker a lot, since she grew up on the streets. So she using all the tricks up her sleeves and in her mind, she is also composing a song about the sweet game of Poker, which she plans to perform after the game! She also feels that ‘Rachael is Ross’s lobster’!
Rachael- She knows how to play Poker, but is a newbie and often asks Ross for help with her moves. Since winning doesn’t really matter to Ross, he willingly helps her! She doesn’t know how to bluff and a tear rolls down her eyes every time she acquires a bad deck of cards! And by the way, her dressing sense is amazing!
The game ends and guess who the winner is? It’s Monica! She defeats Chandler in the final round who was frightened of getting punched if she loses!
