In my first $16 turbo last night I had my Aces cracked by 44.In the second I flat called with Aces after another player had limped in first.I very rarely limp in with rockets but there was a sound reason.The last player to act preflop had been all in on almost every hand and had been getting lucky until the previous hand where he was reduced to 500 chips.Now I just knew that he would push his 500 into the middle and I hoped this would induce a call from the other limper before I bumped the pot up by shoving myself.The plan worked.Mr 500 chips showed 108 off, Mr Limper showed Ad5d and I finally thought I was going to get off to a flying start...until Mr Limpers Ad5d rivered a flush.... Ouch!
Instead of dealing with it as just one of those things, I donked out of a couple more turbos and also bubbled an $11 sng at Full Tilt.I managed to pull myself together briefly to win $50 at a Bet 365 cash table ( before it froze up again when I had JJ!).I moved to Laddies,my tilt monster returned and I blew $100 at a $100 nl full ring table when I called a raise with AJ and something inside me kept insisting the villain was bluffing when he bet out on a Queen high board.There was a Jack there too, but I've no idea why I thought my hand was good.The villain was even smart enough to only bet $1 on the river,allowing me to represent the flush that I obviously didn't have by shoving in my last $30...
I took a wee break before hitting up three $100 nl tables at Party and finished up winning $3 ( yes a whopping $3!) over 1/2hr of play.At least I'd shaken off the tilt monster though!
In other news SJS ( Al Eleven) and Mair have left comments on my last post re a possible blogger/reader get together on Sat 6th October in Glasgow.Dd has mentioned he is interested and although it's short notice everyone else would be welcome too.( my living room could handle a few sleeping bags!).
Hopefully the S-man ( sookraboaby) and my cousins would be up for it too and we could get a wee home game organised.A visit to a local poker club/casino is an alternative depending on numbers and what people prefer.
Perhaps any visitors may like to visit the Offy mentioned in the paper today for that perfect gift to take home...
WE like the humour of the off-licence in Govan which is offering a Buckfast gift pack, complete with Cellophane wrapping and a ribbon, at £9.08, which includes a bottle of Bucky, 20 Mayfair and a packet of Rizla.
