I didn’t play very much on Sunday night,only long enough to lose my wee shark fin at ‘Stars by donking out of an 18 player $15 turbo and then losing with KK and AA to go out of a wee $6 sng before bed.
Last night didn’t begin well as I crashed out of a couple of FT $11 sng’s,one on the bubble and one after misplaying KK.I had raised from the button and got a caller from a player appropriately named “oneloosecaller”.The flop came a nasty Ace high with two spades and I led out anyway with a decent ¾ pot bet.The usual purpose of this is to get the information I require at this stage and not throw any more money away if beaten.
He called and fearing Ace rag ,I slowed down and checked the turn allowing him to catch his flush on the river.The misplaying part was calling his all in because unless he was bluffing he obviously had me beaten.I put him on the Ace or flush and called anyway which was just plain stupid.
Laddys late night crapshoot beckoned and once again I was fairly card dead and had to resort to a couple of steals when folded to me just to keep afloat.Eventually my raise all in from the cut off was called by Mr QQ in the sb and IDOG ( I donked out again).
I didn’t have much motivation to play another intense 6 max or turbo game so I began two tabling $50 nl full ring games and got lucky in my first hand on one table.I decided not to wait for the big blind before buying in and posted.I was dealt Js9s and checked my option.The button made a min raise to $1.Why oh why would anyone ever make a pathetic raise like that preflop?There were a couple of callers and I decided for 50c I would call too and proceed with plenty of caution unless I flopped a monster.
The flop came J high with 2 spades and I very nearly raised when the button made his continuation bet but chose to call.The 9d on the turn gave me two pairs and the flush draw and we saw a blank rag on the river.I bet ,he raised all in for $10 more and I called expecting QQ,KK,AA or the dreaded set.He showed J4 and was possibly trying to steal and then got carried away by the Jack high flop assuming I was only on the flush draw.I left my other table $10 up and then made a quick $10 at a 6 max table before packing it in for the night.
Tonight I’ll be cheering on ex Ranger,Rino Gattuso,as his Ac Milan team visit the darkside to play celt*c in the Champions league and then hitting the tables.
Cm'on the Milan......
