Live From Del Park


Just bounced out of the Noon $150 before the second break.  Wasting time before the 7:00 PM.

Nothing went right this morning.  The first real hand I played occurred at $200/$400/$50.  I raised a limper from middle position with KQ and got another caller.  Three to the flop:

J 9 T rainbow.  Nuts.  Limper bets into me for $600 and I flat.  Caller folds.

Turn: J.  Dude leads again for $800.  I flat.

River is a 9.  Can a board get any worse?  Villain leads for $2,200.  At this point, assuming he caught the flop, I'm beating AT or KT.  And, I doubt he would donk bet three streets if he were that weak.  Fold.  Perhaps I should have re-raised the turn.  But, I'm not sure that would have taken it down, even assuming I was ahead at that point.

Second hand played:  AJ diamonds.  Blinds $300/$600/$75.  I raise to $1,500 and get one caller.  Flop is 5 3 9.  Villain checks and I bet $2,000; villain calls.

Turn is a 7. Villain checks, and I check.

River is an A.  Villain leads for $2,500.  I call.  He flips 64 for the turned straight.

A few hands later, I wake up with QQ in the big blind.  4 people limp for $600.  I pop it to $3,200.  It folds to the button, who calls.  Flop comes down A-rag-rag.  Of course.  I decide to act strong and bet  $2,800.  Villain calls.  I'm done with it.  Turn blanks and I check-fold.

Now I'm sitting on 1/3 my starting stack, and have to play super TAG.  Twice, I folded Ace-rag to raises.  Both times, flop came out AAx and neither player had an ace.  Of course.  Meanwhile, jackasses are winning pots with T5 suited, etc.

I go card dead for about an hour.  Nothing.  Finally, two minutes from the break, I shove 34 spades from the small blind after a min-raise and three callers.   One dude calls me, and flips A8.  I turn a flush, and he rivers a boat.  Donzo.

On the bright side, I can't really run worse in the 7:00pm.
