Duggles would be proud
Actually before we get to the meat of this post I have a question. Your playing a cash game. No reads lets say. A guy raises in MP 4xBB and another guy calls. You have AJo in position on a 9 player table. What do you do? What do you do?
Ok now that I got that out of the way, why would Duggles be proud? I was 40 to the money in a 5$ MTT that started with 1000+ people. I had a nice big 10K stack. I see AQo in EP. I raise 3xBB and get re-raised another 2xBB or so. So I call. The flop comes Axx. I figure I am ahead so I bet 2K. The turn is a blank and I fire out another large bet. At this point in time the guy has called off at least half his stack maybe more. The river is a KING. We get all in for the rest. I would have had 4K left. He turns over KK for the win. I did not call him an idiot. Unfucking beleivable. I would have had over 20K in chips and been 240 to the money. I would have been in the top ten of stacks. Ouch. That. Hurts. Why. Cant. The. Poker. Gods. Let. Me. Win. Just. One.
Cash games were up and down. I ended up like 15+ for the night at the 25/NL tables. I consider this good since I busted out of one table and got suckered into a hand on a second table where I pushed and rivered a set. Same as moron man above however I had about ten bucks left. I was not playing for over 1K. I am still steaming. Anyhow. Not a bad night. I almost doubled up on three tables so that worked out well. Bankroll is slowly grinding a profit. No complaints.
