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.

Congrats you effing donkey.

That 77 hand was one of the more hilarious poker hands I've seen recently. Good times.

Oh come on Waffles, your heads up opponent is referred to simply as "him"? Can't I get a little recognition?

Good game man. See you next week...

Stupid river seven!
