Pain Ju Ju is Good
So the pain from my root canal transferred to luck Ju Ju on Full Tilt yesterday and MANNNNN did I get lucky. Do not get me wrong I think I played pretty strong. Especially after a major beat on the final table.. Ok.. I really was only 5% favorite.. but Hoops calls my all in jam with 2nd pair vs my 16 or more out twice over. I was floored. I was ANNNGRYYY. I channeled it and fought back and took the whole damn Hoy down!!!!!
I can not remember a lot of the hands.. and since I had not turned on hand histories for FT on my new machine I think they are gone.. however here are a few..
Katitude raised from EP, I cold call with 44 thinking she might have AK/AQ.. and my cash game is going on covering the rest of the table so I do not notice Bayne is in the hand. So the betting comes back around to me on a 678 flop.. and I bet exactly what Kat has... I want her to fold any weak hands she might have right here.. then I notice Bayne call.. oops.. Kat folds with a growl. If she is mad that I bet exactly her stack it was not on purpose.. I did not notice Bayne or I would have potted or checked it.. So Bayne cold calls.. and I believe i lead out on the turn.. and then the river is a 4.. I maybe checked and Bayne checked behind.. anyhooo.. I figure my set is probably good so I go ahead and value bet it and Bayne turns over two pair.. If he raised at any point I would have folded but I won anyways.. this is an example of how lucky I was getting..
So I am cruising along and getting some good cards.. I had a big all in with JJ vs AQ.. You know AQ is the nuts right? The flop comes down Axx.. and I just KNOW the jack is coming.. and I river it..
I also got all my chips in vs 3 players.. with 77... HAHA! I was short stacked at the time and decided to gamble.. So one player folds, one turns over KK and Columbo turns over AA.. and you KNOW the 7 falls on the flop! BOOOOM! That got me up to 4K in chips.. I swear I laughed for an hour!!!
Somewhere along the way I got the lead and never looked back until we were down to four players. My arch nemesis Hoops took that hand I told you about.. and IG had a little suckout on me.. but I kept changing the game up.. going passive then aggressive pre-flop.. and took down a ton of pots on bluffs.. I worked my 4th place 10K stack after the suckout back up to 80K vs 20K HU and then it ended like it had to..
I get all his chips in (20K worth) with T9 vs 89 on a 865 board.. on the turn.. with one card to come....... and hit my seven for a straight. BOOM! I was the champion for a night. Feels really good.
