After Sunday nights tiltorama fun I jumped back on the horse and played a few turbo (18 player)$15 sng's with Miami Mark on Monday night.The good news was that my poker mind had calmed down and my tilt monster seems to have retreated grumpily back to his lair.
The bad news was that I bubbled twice and came 6th in the last game.My first bubble came when my JJ was busted by A5.As the Ace fell on the turn I thought of Rosie the Rottie and her Ace rag donkey rants.
A wee "please kneecap" button on her site with a space to fill in the donkeys username may be the way forward.Yes, money is made against donkeys playing Ace rag like that, but it would be much more satisfying to know that Rosie and her sturdy mallet were paying the donkey a visit.
"Evening Sir,Called a raise with A5 for your full stack on the bubble did we?"
Swing mallet.....cue screams......
The next one was a close one as I was the smallest stack, pushed against a big winner with 33 and was eventually called after the clock had almost timed out by the villain and his AJ.( rivered his Ace).
It was an interesting one because I only pushed because the villain was a big winner and I didn't expect him to call me unless he really had a hand.I wonder if he had checked Sharkscope too, realised that I'm profitable overall at these sng's and that I may be pushing with a less than premium hand, because I knew he wouldn't play back at me without something.He had me covered and although I was annoyed to get rivered I could understand the call.
Of course I may be over thinking it and he just thought "awfuckit I'm calling"!!
After the sng's I moved to Laddys and got back on the cash game horse by two tabling $50nl full ring.The play was incredibly loose and juicy with high average pots and 6-7 players playing in raised pots.I kept it tight ,got into a few pots with speculative hands from late position and eventually won nearly a buy-in
when I raised with AK and flopped my Ace and the nut flush draw.The flush draw never came in and I didn't get to see what the villain had but I was happy to see the cash slide over to me.
Last night I read a few blogs whilst Mrs A took her bath and then watched my Mum bubble in a $1.50 turbo at 'Stars before switching off and watching Casino Royale with the Mrs.I didn't play any poker at all and my hands didn't start shaking and no cold sweats were detected!
Tonight I'm heading over to Mother Acorns for a while before picking up Step A heading home to chill....
