If I ran any worse today, I'd probably be dead.
It started at the Aria daily tournament. I was completely card dead. I won one hand the first 4 levels. That's two hours, folks. Then I got some cards, and promptly left the building...
Blinds were $200/$400/$25. Two limpers and the action arrives to me in the small blind. AK. I'm sitting on around $8,000 and raise to $1,300. Both limpers have around $4,000 chips. Both call.
Flop is A25 rainbow. I lead for $2,200. Both ship it. I call the small amount on top. Both limpers have AQ. Turn is a Queen. Down to around $4,000 chips.
Later that same level cutoff limps and I pop to $1,200 from the small blind with QQ. Cutoff has me covered, and calls.
Flop is 973. I bet $1,500. Cutoff shoves. I call. He tables A3. Huh? Turn blanks, river is an Ace. Really? Donzo.
After dinner, I decide to play cash at Ballys. I buy in for $200. I'm surrounded by 9 of the worst poker players I've ever shared a table with. Three hours later, I'm broke...
Once again, I spent an hour card dead. And no sense trying to make moves against this table full of monkeys. So I sit. And I patiently fold. Then, finally, I get some good cards. And I lose all my money in 15 minutes.
First hand -AK from the button. I open to $10. Small blind comes along. Flop is A45 (two spades). He checks, I bet $12, and he flats. Turn blanks and I bet $27. He flats. River is a king. He shoves his last $35. I call with top two - no match for his flopped wheel. Ouch. Ok. Shit happens.
Several hands later, two people limp and I raise to $12 with AQ. Both call. Fop is 4 Q 8 (two clubs). Dude donk bets $10. Other villain calls. I raise to $35. Donker folds. Mother villain RE-RAISES $100 on top. Huh? He flats $10, and then repops my raise? My read is that he flopped a set - 88's or 44's. He initially called $10 to try and build a pot, but when I raised, he figured he had me on the hook, and didn't want to mess with the flush draw. I fold. He shows QQ. Not the set I put him on, particularly after he tried to limp preflop. But, whatever. It's all the same.
Several hands later, it's my turn with pocket QQ. One limper. I pop to $10 from middle position. It folds to limper, who calls. Of course. Flop is 7 2 8 rainbow. I bet $15. He calls. Turn is a 3. I bet $32. He raises, putting me all in for my last $45 or so. I call. He flips 73. Really? Fuck. You.
