SAN DIEGO, CA – Local San Diego resident, Alexander Petit meticulously prepared his home for an all-encompassing poker night, and had everything he needed to hold an authentic poker tournament in his own home – except guests. Starting at 2 p.m., Alexander began to clean his apartment and hit the grocery store for beer and snacks for his party. Reports indicate that by 4 p.m. he was preparing fresh nachos and had finished counting out each individual stack of chips for his anticipated six guests.
It was between the hours of 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. that Alexander started to have slight doubts about the number of card playing guests that would be attending his event. He began to check the Facebook invite more and more frequently and sources say that by 5:55 p.m. he had already direct messaged every invited guest at least twice – albeit to no response. Mr. Petit began pacing some after 6 p.m. and he had finished an entire bowl of chips and salsa by himself by 7 p.m.
Slowly accepting defeat, Alexander began stacking the tournament style chips and casino used cards into their case at 8 p.m. He folded the custom Texas Hold ‘em table mat and stowed it among his trunk of unopened board games. It was reported that as Mr. Petit began to individually stow the snacks and uneaten nachos into Tupperware containers he mumbled plausible excuses to himself, under his breath to account for his missing guests.
Before going to bed, Alexander hung up the clear green visor he purchased just to get a laugh from his good friends who would appreciate the effort he put into selflessly throwing a poker game for them. He also removed the custom framed painting of dogs playing cards he had purchased specifically for the party his friends had totally assured him they would indeed attend. Investigators discovered later that Mr. Petit’s neighbors said that they did indeed hear sobbing though the wall that night.
