I was going to relax for the week but I might as well flame a few of the comments I have gotten recently. Who knows maybe it will put me in a better mood.
First off I have been getting a lot of comments about the hand where I had a FLOPPED straight and went all in against three other players. The interesting comment was about how I should think through my hands before I act. Let us break this down. I flopped a straight. I had the shizz nutz. If I thought about the hand the best scenario I can have is a guy overplaying AA/KK. This is actually what I thought I had and I was wrong. In that scenario I am a 94% favorite to win this hand. Now the other slightly lower probability scenario is someone had raised in ep with 66 or 44 or something. In this case I am 67% to win this hand. So worse case scenario I win this almost 7 out of 10 times. Best case I win this around 9 out of 10 times. I am getting 3-1 on every dollar I put into this hand. How can anyone say that I should fold? Even if I put the guy on the best hand possible I am getting 3-1 on a hand I win 7 times! I am fucking going to be rich!!!! I make $525 for every $75 I invest. Something like that. I suck at math. There is no way in hell I should ever fold this. This hand was played perfectly by me. I rule.
Now lets turn to last nights hand. Mr. Annoymous (Duggles? Slb?) said "What do you expect pushing with Jacks".. well, what I expected was one of three things. I would get called with a superior hand like AA/KK/QQ and be drawing to two outs. I hoped nobody had this. I would be called by a 50/50 race hand. Something like AK-KQ. In this case I would be racing for my life and hope that I would win the coinflip. The last scenario was all other hands I did not mention in which case I am 70-80% favored to win this hand. I got the best possible situation I could hope for and lost. So why push with Jacks? Well if you know ANYTHING about MTTs which apparently you do not when your stack gets low compared to the blinds you need to push with a good hand and hope for the best. Period. I had 5500 in chips and the blinds were 500. I got a VERY good starting hand in Jacks (Just as JJ) and I pushed. I made the best possible move and got the best possible call. A guy called off over half his chips with pocket 9's. Unfortunately he hit his two outer and won. Why I would not want to push as a 80%+ leader I am not sure. Why I would not want to push with a stack that was becoming alarmingly small I do not know. Why you know nothing about poker I could speculate on but I really can not understand.
So that is it for my idiot rant of the day. I think it worked. I am feeling better already. Someday if you get to be good as me (and I am not very good) then you might understand. Until then keep losing money and chasing deposit bonus's and leave the poker to the professionals.
