I am using "New" Blogger now. I feel powerful.
I present to you a pictorial of the night of Waffles. I had a decent night final tabling two MTTs but not making any money.
I start out the night with the 2$ rebuy on FT. I flop a GREAT hand and on the flop this donkey re-raises me all in.
He runner-runner flushes me instead of catching his gutshot motherfucking straight draw and I am rebuying early and often. I then end up winning an 80% fav hand just after the break and suddenly I have some chips and can try and make a run for it.
Late in the game I end up with an interesting hand. I raise my 9's 6K and get cold called by the doofus on the end. The flop is not too bad. Either I am crushed or I am ahead. I decide to go ahead and push here since I do not have a hell of alot of chips left and my opponent insta-calls me.
As you can see his calling of my pre-flop raise and my push on the flop was retarded. My play of the hand was only slightly less retarded. I honestly put him on a big Ace and was happy to see his actual hand.
The next hand the same guy leads out weak and then bets the turn weak. I have two overs to the remaining cards and only the jack beats me. So I decide to go for it and push. He folds.
The next hand was interesting. I raise with my Jacks and he cold calls again. Bad habit of his. He then makes a good move by betting out small on the flop.. about 4K into an 8K pot.. So here I have to decide if I am ahead or not and if I think he has a heart.. I decide he is a donkey and go ahead and raise 12K.. In hind site this pot commits me and was a horrible move. If he had lead out with a pot sized bet I would have insta-folded but he tricked me into getting pot committed for a good chunk of my chips and well.. I actually won.
So I get near the chip lead.. I may have taken it for a while.. Meanwhile I am doing this at a Razz MTT.
I final table the fucker but only 3-spots paid so no luck for me. I just never could get any momentum going and went out on a hand that was close.. If he misses a 5 on the river or I get a low card it could be a different story.. however that is Razz for you..
So now I am concentrating on this table..
I end up going out in 7th place when I raise 12K with 99 and get pushed in for 26K more by KK.. Now I am not sure this call I made was good. It is hard to say. At 38K I was a shortie. Not the shortest but pretty short. I had an M of just over 10. However every spot from here on up is an extra chunk of change.. sooooooo.. I dunno.. I think folding here and not raising in EP in the first place would be ok. I do not think the call was horrible since I needed chips and this guy could easily have been on tilt from his last hand and/or been in a race situation.. Normally I like folding these kinds of hands when I am deep cause 8th just does not feel worth it.
Anyway.. perhaps my three week drought is over.. A normal amount of suckouts tonight and I even won a few hands I was suppose to.
I even had a HUGE suckout I did not report.. I had some hand like A2 in the SB.. and it is raised in EP.. 1 guy calls before me and it is 2BB to call.. So I call at the discount price. Hey it was s000ted! The flop gives me a gutshot straight draw. The guy leads out for a near pot bet and my middle friend once again calls.. So what the fuck.. getting 3:1 on my money and maybe implied odds? lol. Loose call but it was a rebuy. I turn a flush draw. I then decide to get cute and bet out 3K.. If I lose here I have 3-4K behind and will be hurt but ok. The original guy cold calls me after the middle guy folds. The river brings me the nuts.. I push the rest of my stack in and the on a flush and straight board I get called. He turns over somewhat badly played Aces.. I mean what does he beat there except a pure bluff? I dunno. Anyway.. he screams, whines, and yells at me for a while as I enjoy calling him a donkey and telling him to learn to laydown Aces.. Funny as hell.
Hopefully I am back to just having horrible luck and the super-extra-wicked-horrible luck is gone. We shall see tomorrow night. I am not totally sure yet because I got coolered in the Midnight Madness really early.. I have the Moooooook(T8o)! I flop my eight and turn trip eights.. so I push.. and the guy who flopped a set of jacks and turned a boat of course calls.. I was nowhere close to ahead at any point so maybe that does not count.. we shall see..
