Poker is . . . Fun

Saturday and Sunday, I played my first sessions since Vegas in early June, in between Orioles games.  A total of 6 hours, for ($130). 

Saturday night's session, from about 12:00 to 3:00 am was a bore-fest.  I was card dead.  As a result, I think I butchered one hand, that cost me most of the $100 loss.  I had 55 and limped in middle position, 4 ways.  The flop was 4 6 7 all spades.  It checked to me, and I bet $15.  Late position called, and the other two folded.  The turn was a red 4, and I bet $25 or so.  Again, a call.  I missed the straight on the river -- a red 6, and gave up.  Villain shoved his remaining $35.  The board was 46746, with the flush on the flop.  There is absolutely nothing I'm beating.  There's $130 in the pot, so I am getting like 5-1.  But, there's nothing in the world my 55's beat.  Yet, after 8 miller lites at the Orioles game, (which cost like $70), donating another $35 seemed charitable.  So, I make the call, and villain flips 2 5 spades for the flopped straight flush.  Even though it was only $35, I was sort of pissed at myself for not letting the hand go on the river.  I could hear Poker Meister in my head yelling at me for donating . . .

Sunday I played another 3 hours or so post game.  This time, I got dealt JJ four times.  Three times, I opened to $15 and got 3 to 4 callers.  All three times, over cards hit.  Twice, multiple over cards hit, and I checked the flop and gave up to turn bets.  The 3rd time, only a queen hit the flop, so I took a crack at a  C-bet and was called in one spot.  I doubled barreled on the turn, and got called again, before giving up to a $75 lead on the river.  KQ / AQ good.

The fourth time, I opened my JJ to $15, got re-raised by the small blind to $55, and just let them go.  Of course, later on in the session, some dude opened with JJ, got repopped all in, and called.  Three-better had AA.  Jack hits the river and JJ rakes a huge pot.  Whatever.  Fun game.

I also got dealt KK somewhere in the midst of my run of pocket jacks.  Here too, I opened from middle position to $15.  This time, of course, it folds around and I make $5 from the blinds.  #Run_Good

At the three hour mark, I was up about $40, and had to leave soon.  Final hand played, I look down at JT.  Luck box, whose been rivering everybody,  opens to $10 and gets two callers. What the hell.  I come along.  Flop is A T 3.  Luckbox bets $10.  It folds to me.  I choose to see another card.  Turn is a J.  Checks to me, and I bet $40.  Luck box calls.  River is a 3.  It checks to me and I check back.  Luck box flips A 7.  Nice counterfeit.  Poker is a fun game.

  1. I assume the V from the first hand had 3-5 of spades, not 2-5? I think you can find a fold there on the river, you can't beat anything but a stone cold bluff.

  2. Biggest leak: spending $70 on Lite at a baseball game.

  3. I am assuming this was "The Shoe". I was there last week. I must admit I like it better than MDLive. The hand with the fives reminds me of what happens when I play too long at a table.
