Busted by the Big Man

Well the bleeding continues. As you can see from last night I am getting very frustrating results on the river. It is almost to the point where I would fold KK just because I know someone is going to beat me with 84o. Oh well.

On the upside I have been taking part in the nightly, impromptu, Blogger NL slap fest. I have not been winning but it has been fun. I started off pretty well last night and actually had my stack doubled at one point. The hand of the night was when I bluffed Iggy off a hand with 72o, not an easy feat! Of course I showed!

Iggy would get his revenge though. I limped in with J3d. It was s0000ted dude! The flop was a lovely 4d10d5x. Now a flush draw is not so bad. So I put a few bucks in and Iggy hangs with me. The next card is a Jack. Now here is where I go brain dead. Iggy goes all in. Here was my thinking:

A. The Rat Bastard has nothing and is trying to push me off the pot.
B. He has a draw and is trying to win outright.
C. He has a pair, and since I did not bet much, he wanted to protect it, not putting me on a Jack.
D. He has a hand and is not going to let me have a card towards my flush.

So I decide to call him. What the hell! This is why I play these little NL games. They are fun, and the money does not mean much. It was 2AM and I needed sleep anyways. Some of us have to go to real jobs! Well, I missed my flush draw and it turns out Iggs had J4 for two pair. Beats my J3. Even if it is s00ted! If I had hit my diamond the Iggster would have either been crying or berating me for a foolish play, but alas the river is only good for other people these days. At least I had a blast. Well worth my $25 donation!

Anyway not much else in Poker has been fun lately, so I am enjoying donating my money.

**EDIT: I just remembered, and in tune with my bleeding out the ass on the river theme, Iggs actually caught a 4 on the river, to make his BOAT! #&*#*(# river!

I was tired of sitting on the wait list for that one, so thanks for the call. :) I'm going to try and make more frequent appearances in these gatherings as well. Your seat broke even for the next hour so don't worry too much.

I am not too worried. I really just sit to lose 25 bucks and have fun. I probably could apply myself a little better and do well.. but then it would not be as much fun.. nothing gets the heart racing like going all in with 72o and waiting to see if your opponent will call you!

Iggy cry? I'd pay $25 to see that.
