Another horrible weekend at Delaware Park:
STACKED SATURDAY @ $1/2 NL
Saturday, I dropped a full buy-in in less than two hours. Really only got involved in 5 hands:
Hand one takes place about 5 minutes into the session. I limp from late position with JJ (its early, and I decide to play my jacks small). Flop comes out T high, with 4 players. Call $15 on the flop and pick up an open ended straight draw when an 8 hits the turn. First to act bets $50 . . . one caller . . . Cut off shoves for $250 . . . folds around and cut off shows JQ for the str8t.
Limp in with 97 off from the small blind and go five ways to the flop. Flop comes 885. I check call $12 on the flop hoping to catch a miracle 6 on the turn for a well-disguised straight and crazy implied odds. Turn is . . . . 6 of spades - JACKPOT !!!!. I lead out for $20 and get two callers. River is . . . . another 6. F*CK ME. Board reads 88566. I check. Middle position bets out $45 and gets a call frm the hi-jack. I fold. Bettor shows A high . . . hijack has the 6.
I have 88 in middle position. Raise to $10 and get three callers. Flop comes T 4 7 rainbow. UTG donk bets $15. I repop to $45. Last to act (an old regular) calls $45 and original bettor folds. Turn is another 4. I check to the old man who bets $50. I give him credit for the T and fold.
Down $100 at this point.
JJ (again) on the button . . . it limps around 6 ways and I raise to $17. UTG +1 limp raises to $50. Fold.
I look down at QQ in early position and raise to $12. Three callers. Flop is J high with two diamonds. I bet $45 and get two callers. Turn is an A. Here's a spot where position kills. Second to act is young and aggressive. I know if I check, he will bet regardless of his hand. I have about $116 behind. I decide to shove. Kid snap calls and last to act folds. Kid shows AK and I'm stacked. I really thought I was good on the turn. Not sure what this kid was thinking callling $45 on the flop with two overs and no draw. But, he hit is outs and that's what counts.
Hours Played: 2; Hands Won: -0-; Damage ($300)
SUNDAY NOON $5,000 GUARANTY SUCKOUT
This morning (Sunday), I attempted to shake it off, and signed up for the noon $5,000 guarantee. Busted out during the second level, apparently unable to wash off my Delaware curse.
I had chipped up from 7,500 to 9,000+ when I looked down at KK in middle position. I raise to $300 . . . folds to the button who three bets to $1,000. I re-pop to $3,600. Villian shoves and I snap call. Villian shows QQ . . . and rivers the Q... I'm crippled down to $1,600. I shove 4 hands later with JJ and get called in two spots. K falls on the turn and AK takes the pot and I hit the rail. My earliest tournament exit of the year.
Long drive home back to DC this weekend . . .
