I decided to try some $50/NL. Could someone tell me what went wrong.
I raise 1.50 with JJ. I get re-raised another 2.50. One other person calls. It is a three way pot. My thinking in calling the additional 2.50 was if I hit a set I get laid. The flop comes ATJ. Now I am afraid someone MIGHT have AA but what the hell. The first guy raises all in. The second guy calls and I call. (Somewhat of a mistake). I have $30 behind me and the pot is $60. The turn is a K. So the second guy goes all in and I make the mistake of calling. I am sort of glad I did because it was interesting.
So what place did I come in? Well interesting that you ask. Third. Yes. You see guy number one had KK and hit his two outer on the turn. Way to push your entire stack in on the flop with the worse hand. Drawing to a two outer. Guy number two, who won btw, had AQ. Way to call off more than half your stack with a two outer gutshot straight draw and second best hand. So basically I got two outered on the turn and did not fold when I for sure should have. It would have saved me a few bucks. However, do I have the worse luck ever?
