$2/$5 session at the Isle, all-in-all a good session (despite the following blunders), ~ 8 hours
I have K6 off in the big blind, like 5 ppl limp in. Flop is K/6/10 rainbow.
I check, one guy bets 30ish, everyone folds and I call.
Turn is a K, I check, guy bets 50, and I call.
River is an A, I bet 50, he raises 50, I call, he shows K8.
Everyone at the table says I'm nice for not raising. WTF is wrong with me. I had been playing with this guy for a while and there's no way he has AK without raising pre-flop. The only thing he could have had was K10. So, I'll repeat: WTF is wrong with me.
I'm writing so it's official - I'll never do that or the following again:
I have KK on the button and 2 ppl limped in before me. I make it 25, both limpers call.
Flop comes J/10/8 rainbow, guy who was under the gun pre-flop led out 60, I made it 180, he ships it for 540 total.
I think, "I'm gonna fold." But first, I decide to look over at him one time to check him out and he's doing that faux-strength-staring-at-me thing. I knew he didn't have a set, two pair or a straight so before thinking any further I said "call". Neither of us turn our cards face up until the whole board is out and he shows AA.
Awful decision on my part, all I could have hoped he had was AJ or QQ and even though I didn't know him, it's unlikely he ships there unless he really wants to push me around, which, at the time I called, thought was way more likely than it really was. I'm ashamed of this play.
good things: I recouped after that loss and made back most of the money I lost to net +470 for the long, emotional session.
I'd write about some of my come-back hands, but I don't remember them in as much detail (go figure).
Til next time,
