Well I have finally descended into full white trash status. Having a defunct car in my yard for a *cough* year was not bad enough. No, I had to go and do it. My wife knocks the mirror off my car and what do I do? Go to the body shop? Get it fixed? Hah! I get out the coil of rope and tie that sucker on! Yeeeeee Hawwwwwww! I am ready to move to some hick backwater cesspool of the world and start voting republican. Texas here I come!
Poker has been up and down. I still am getting the feel for making good laydowns. A few mistakes here and there and the roll goes into variance land. It is sitting at about $450 now. I had gotten it up over the $525 mark but alas it tis no more.
Some examples of semi-hard laydowns I should have made:
I play the ole Mr. Crabs, 33, for you non Poker people. The flop is a nice 378 for a pretty looking set. Two floosh cards on the board. So I bet the pot. I get one caller. The turn is a rag that helps nobody. So I bet half the pot. I have put about ten bucks into this pot so far. I get cold called. The turn is a stinking T. So no floosh but a straight on the river. The guy bets out fifteen bucks. Now I think a laydown at this point would be acceptable. I also consider that he could have two pair or a better set. The only things I beat are two pair, and TPTK. I doubt he has TPTK. So it is either a straight or two pair. Want to guess what the chaser had? Yup. The Gutshot straight. Add another win to the fishies side. Anyone not lay this hand down?
I of course have made other blunders. Getting attached to AA a little much. I had a fun hand where I made an AEWSOME read and went all in with QQ vs JT, and the flop and turn and river are all variations of J’s and T’s. lol. Nothing you can do there, except maybe wait for a better opportunity. It seems like there are sets around every corner. My best loss though was with trip A’s. I bet them hard as hell and the guy just decided he HAD to draw to his RSF! I guess you can not blame him.
At least I got to witness another person’s misery. It was REALLY funny. A boat vs QUAD 7’s. Wow! Now there is hand I would be ok with not laying down.
So I keep learning and hoping to get better. I also keep looking for a job. I have a week and a half to go. I would not be too surprised if I do not find anything. I mean why should anything be going right in my life. It just looks odd with most of the bad stuff on one side, and a sickly but well paying job on the other. Come on over to the dark side Un-Employment and why don’t you bring your ugly red headed step sister bankruptcy while your at it. I always did say I wanted to play this game professionally, lol.
