Busted by the Big Man
Well the bleeding continues. As you can see from last night I am getting very frustrating results on the river. It is almost to the point where I would fold KK just because I know someone is going to beat me with 84o. Oh well.
On the upside I have been taking part in the nightly, impromptu, Blogger NL slap fest. I have not been winning but it has been fun. I started off pretty well last night and actually had my stack doubled at one point. The hand of the night was when I bluffed Iggy off a hand with 72o, not an easy feat! Of course I showed!
Iggy would get his revenge though. I limped in with J3d. It was s0000ted dude! The flop was a lovely 4d10d5x. Now a flush draw is not so bad. So I put a few bucks in and Iggy hangs with me. The next card is a Jack. Now here is where I go brain dead. Iggy goes all in. Here was my thinking:
A. The Rat Bastard has nothing and is trying to push me off the pot.
B. He has a draw and is trying to win outright.
C. He has a pair, and since I did not bet much, he wanted to protect it, not putting me on a Jack.
D. He has a hand and is not going to let me have a card towards my flush.
So I decide to call him. What the hell! This is why I play these little NL games. They are fun, and the money does not mean much. It was 2AM and I needed sleep anyways. Some of us have to go to real jobs! Well, I missed my flush draw and it turns out Iggs had J4 for two pair. Beats my J3. Even if it is s00ted! If I had hit my diamond the Iggster would have either been crying or berating me for a foolish play, but alas the river is only good for other people these days. At least I had a blast. Well worth my $25 donation!
Anyway not much else in Poker has been fun lately, so I am enjoying donating my money.
**EDIT: I just remembered, and in tune with my bleeding out the ass on the river theme, Iggs actually caught a 4 on the river, to make his BOAT! #&*#*(# river!
