Way Too Invested
I am way too invested in these games. I need more distance. I guess that is a bad side effect of playing on a fifty buck roll. Oh well.. I look forward to the day soon when I buyin for 4K and the Mookie is just some piddly little game.. who cares if I outplay everyone and get screwed. Not an issue. Until then I will continue to call you all losers and rant and rave.. because that is what I do.
Obviously the Mookie is a fun game. At least it is suppose to be. I do enjoy them.. even if I get some of the worse beats ever two weeks in a row. At first I thought Kaj's call was not that bad.. then he said he put me on Aces.. at which point it becomes a horrible call.. but hey, he won, so be it..
People at all different skill levels play these things and in some ways this is what makes these a mindfield and very, very, challenging.. you never know when your opponent is going to push with A2 or call your huge raise with KJo.. it just IS going to happen.. if you win the hands your supposed to you probably make a final table if you get brutally raped then you go out.
At least I made a few bucks in the second Mookie.. I actually sucked out bad against the host. I had Kings hidden and by the time I figured out Mookie had Rolled up Queens I had committed enough chips to make it wrong to fold..
It was kind of a funny hand.. I am capping him pre-flop.. saying to myself.. He just has a pair of Queens right? Then I and capping him on the 4th.. and I am like, shit, he must have a set.. by then it was too late and Mookies fate was sealed. If I lost that hand I would have alot less chips but still be in the game. Oh well. Sorry Mook!!!!
I think I played pretty well the rest of the game.. Calling Fuel on a few of his bluff's.. Taking Slb out when he had a set and I had a massive draw with 3456 on 4th street.. man was he pissed.. Dude, remember, Full Tilt re-orders the cards!!!
As chip leader with three left I overplayed a few hands when it was down to me Diddie and Xlm.. We all played a decent game.. but with blinds at 2K or some crazy ass thing like that it was all up to who got the best cards and made the best draws and I ended up out in third. Congrats to Xlm for taking the whole thing down and to Diddie for playing a nice mix of patient and aggressive game.
Tonight I will be at CC's Thursday Bash so make sure you get your ass over to Pokerstars tonight and play. I am offering a free rant for the fifth person in two weeks to crush my spirit and soul with a 80-95% Dog of a hand. It should be easy if the past few weeks are any indication.
Almost forgot this one too.. I know I told you Mooker's that you were the biggest freaking Donkeys in the world but Riverworld is a new place! I got sucked out so bad last time that it made the Mookie look like a final table with Unger, Men, and Doyle. If you miss this then your missing a donkey dance to beat all donkey dances. I finally decided when I was 3 to the money to get my chips in with the WORST hand like Tripjax suggests and that did not work for me either.. Actually I had QQ.. made a large pre-flop raise, got called by A6o or some crap hand, and when the Ace flopped I refused to fold. Yes I am a tool. I do need to work on frustration calls deep into MTTs when the same donkey sucks out on me over and over and over.. Giving him the rest of my chips is not the best option.
