Had some amount of fun playing the WWDN:Not tonight. I got alot of flack for two plays I made. One against Bone Daddy and one against Sox. I ended up in third. Even better, DuggleBoggey Bubbled.. which normally I would only take a little joy in, but since he was mocking my game I felt it was nice to see him go from first to last and bubble out.
The first play was when I was in a hand with 37s or some hand like that. I do not beleive it was raised pre-flop and it was multi-way. The flop gives me a pair of three's, a gutshot, and a flush draw. So I push. I get called by Daddy. He has a zillion outs, two of which kill my flush draw. HOWEVER, according to some people, I made the right move because I WAS AHEAD. This is why results oriented talk makes no sense. I really should have folded. However since I made the power move, and all he had was Q high, he really should not have called most of his stack off. With all the outs he had it was not a bad call. He decided to gamble and lost. The funniest thing though was when he berated me throughout the rest of the game for that play. Uh.. Sorry for having the best hand, I will try not to next time. He even waited until I busted out of the tourney. In third place. ITM. I thought he had left by then but when I pushed all in against Hoyazo knowing he was going to call me Bone Daddy pops his little head up and berates me for playing the Hammer. Uh. Ok.
The other play that was kind of fun tonight was when SoxLover raised 3xB with KK. I called because I had him out chipped, I was way ahead in chips, and it was Sox! I had 64o btw. The flop of course comes 64x. He bets out, I push him all in, he calls, he loses, he cries. Actually he took it pretty well. Only berated me twice and did not wait until I busted out to go to sleep.
I have a couple of suggestions here. First off this is not the WSOP or some high stakes tourney. It is a fun game. Enjoy it. I know the ONLY reason I play any of these games is to have fun. I would never have gone all in against Hoyazo, when he had $210 left, and he had bet 2K into a pot, with "The Hammer" if it was not a fun game. I hear way too many of you people getting pissed off at these games. The point of this kind of game is to bond with your fellow Bloggers, have a fun time, talk trash.. it is not to take yourself too seriously and berate players who you think played a hand wrong.
The second point is: Always look at what you did wrong, not what the other person did. If you did nothing wrong then fine. However if you are just looking at your pretty kings and do not consider that someone could have something when they re-raise you then it is your fault. If you want to gamble basically your entire game on a flush draw then understand the conssciquences if you lose. Live with them. Do not blame the player who beat you.
Congrats for Hoyazo for going from worse to first and taking it all down. I guess the next game is the Blogger tourney. Cya There.
