Today, during lunch, I log on to Seals and decide to play a few hands. The only full-ring game going on in my buy-in range is the .01 / .02 no-rake micro. I buy in for the full 4 chips, thinking playing a few hands in this shit-show is better than spending 30 minutes reading incomprehensible posts on RTP or the comments from Ray ("John Doe") on TBC's blog, which, for the record, have been scientifically proven to actually lower your IQ. Seriously. It happens, folks.
First hand played after limping the blinds:
AK off (both black).
Raise to .08. Two callers, one of whom is a gentlemen who goes by the moniker, "SexyCock." No doubt a high-power executive in some high rise office in one of this country's power centers who, like me, is just trying to grind some hands during lunch.
Flop: J(h) 5(d) K(h).
Pot: (.44) SexyCock checks, I bet .30 SexyCock quickly calls. Other player folds.
Pot (1.04). SexyCock check calls .7.
Pot (2.44). SexyCock jams for 7+
Was he drawing? Could be. But, he could also be one of the many idiots who do incomprehensible things during games of this level. I find it sort of hard to fold to this bet, given what I've seen players turn over in these spots in the past. I call with my top 2, and SexyCock turns over a dirty QT. Well, played, sir.
I rebuy for 4. Three hands later I open UTG to .10 with KK. Two callers and the button raises to .5. I re-raise to 2.5. One caller calls all-in for his last 1.5, and button shoves. I put in the other .5. As expected: my KK, callers TT, button's AA. And a set of TTT takes the main pot, while button takes the side.
5 minutes, two hands, two buy-ins lost. Fun lunch.
