"Someone Please Call 911..."
As least Mary J Blige wasn't singing about being gang-raped at the poker table like I was tonight. I feel so dirty. I'm going to take a shower with my clothes on.
Now, I'm not one to moan about bad beats. It's not rigged. They happen. I'm not any luckier or unluckier than anyone else.
I post this small sample of hands from last night just to show how variance can be a bitch at times.
This play by my opponent is terrible- getting it all in pre-flop with AKo when deep-stacked. He was less than a 6% dog to win:
AA v AKo
This is just a cooler. I knew I was ahead of the short-stacked maniac so made the correct flop call. I wasn't too happy when the other player called...
FH v Quads
In this hand the guys river his Quads as a 4.5% dog when the money goes in. (My flop all-in may look strange but my cable had just started playing up and kept disconnecting me in the middle of pots.)
Another FH v Quads
This is my "favourite" hand of the night, and just demonstrates how fucking useless so many of the players are. I mean- what the fuck does he think he's beating? He is a 0.66% dog to win the hand when the money goes in!!
Obviously you want fucking idiots playing like this but sometimes it's not always easy to laugh it off. I lost $300 in total. On another night, playing every hand exactly the same way, it could easily be a $1,000+ night.
Anyway, more importantly....
