80-20 no Good
Went out just inside the points in the Mookie tonight. I had a 4K stack. I raised 480, Sellthekids re-raised 2500 or something. I think his raise means he is weak so I jam with my Queens. He calls... with his jacks.. Saying "I know you have me beat but I can not fold here can I?".. He rivered a runner-runner straight and then he asked what he did wrong on the hand.
Ok. Why commit yourself to the hand with Jacks? A smaller raise tells you where you are normally. Your bigger raise narrowed down your range for me and made the call with queens easy. However I have seen worse plays.
I am not sure how I feel about the call. I mean if you KNOW you are beat with no doubt. It is still early. You actually could fold. I mean if your that far behind are you pot committed? Chip wise possibly.. but that may be the difference between a great player and a good one. I do not think I fold there either.
So not the best play in the world but not horrible. The guy who gets my rant is Heffmike. Why you might ask?
Ok. I am in a hand with him early.. and the flop is nasty and I keep betting small into the hand.. and so Mike decides well within reason that he will try and take the pot on the river. However he makes a pussy bet and I figure my Ace high is probably good and snap off his bluff... He is then incredulous that his J8c super sneaky I am a bad ass player bluff got called by ACE high. Get over it dude. Your bluff sucked. It was not even a hard call by a long shot.
Mike then proceeds to call most of my raises trying to get back at me for some perceived injustice.. I.E. Outplaying him and making him look stupid.. and ends up losing EVEN MORE chips to me. Great idea. Call raises with crap because you are mad at me and then donate more chips. Genius at work. Everyone watch out.
Finally he says I imploded in the Mookie and somehow did something wrong. I mean I am not sure about this.. but I think I got a guy to put all his chips in the pot as a HUGE dog.. I believe I had a great chance to double up and be in great shape for a run at the final table... and I am not sure but I think that the donkey got incredibly lucky and won some small percentage luckbox hit on some river miracle card. Now I know you do not get poker all that well.. and I am trying to speak slowly here.. and use small words.. but can you explain how I imploded? If you can you are a far better poker player than I ever will be.
Fucking haters.. at least make some sense when you talk smack to me. Anyway.. that was fun. Much better than ranting against SelltheKids marginal play. I see him make mistakes all the time and he just needs to learn. I think he has a great attitude and may someday fold a pocket pair pre-flop. I am not going to hold my breath but we will see.
No more MTTs until Friday with Katitude. The $1 REBUY is so much fun and hilarity that I can do nothing but highly recommend it. If you remember last week we had 170 rebuys and a prize pool of $108. Lets do it again this week people! After that I am playing either the 18K Guaranteed or the 22K Deep stack on Saturday. Until then Rant On!!!
