I have a lot of stuff tonight. We start with:

Moron. noun {C} INFORMAL a very stupid person:

I met one today. OMG was he a bad Poker player. On the bad side he calls my raise with A7o vs AK diamonds. I had pushed my stack up to 100 on a nice payoff with a set. The flop is A7x. With two diamonds. I bet the flop, he raises me a little, I call. Slightly loose. Whatever. So the diamond hits the turn. He pushes. I got the NUTS! I call. Of COURSE the river is a 7. So I am a moron. I always bet strong with the best hand and I ALWAYS (well almost always) lose. STUPID ME.

Hell, I just did it again while typing this. KQ s00ted. All in on the flop of K56, two hearts, in an MTT. I had low chips. AJo with a J of hearts calls me. Hits his heart and that’s it for me. MORON.

At least I met some nice guys at the first table. The moron gave me back a half of what he sucked out on me. I was a little angry. I kept calling him a moron. However, never let it be said I am not fair, I told him when I won back $25 more from him I would just call him stupid. Unfortunately he busted out twice before I could do that. So he is forever MORON.

I also used “The Move: to take a lot of cash from a guy who I respected somewhat. He was a decent player. He had a K high heart draw. I had the Ace high draw. I kept betting like $2, like I had a hand, and he kept trying to draw the K high flush. On the river the flush comes and I check it. I KNEW he was on the heart draw. Knew it. So he bets $3. I raised to $15 which is about the pot. He pushes and I have to try and stop him from crying. Actually he was a good sport. I made the comment that with the K high flush and me showing aggression that a re-raise of my $15 was not the best move. I think he should have called or folded. If someone is that aggressive when I am betting at them, I best have the NUTS.

On a more positive note I need to give congrats to Team Veneno! We rock at MTTs. Chief has made the money in several Freerolls and the 2/0. I believe he had a 6th or 7th place finish. I had the 5th place. Now the leader of our merry band has taken her rightful place at the head of the pack with a 3rd place finish in the 2/0 MTT! Way to go Veneno!

The SNG world has been up and down. I had 4 4th place finishes in 10/1’s and a 2nd in a 20/2. A couple firsts in 5/1’s. So far the 5/1 has been a pretty consistent money maker. I have changed my style. I used to bluff a lot and be a little loose. Now it is rare if I have played 6 hands by the 100 level. If so they were all good ones. Once it hits 100, I decide what to do next by how many are left, how many chips I have, and other things. Basically if I have won a battle and chipped up to 1500-1800 I usually just hand out a little and see what is going on. If I however have 600-700 then I look for an all in to carry me to the money. It seems to work well.

OMG! What is in the water? All in with an OESD draw? I had AK. K flop. She pushes all in. I call. She rivers a straight. Oh wait, she is a he. whoops. I hate that top Party Person.

As for the Morons, they are here to stay. Just part of the game. You do seem to get screwed quite often, so I can understand the frustration. Hang in there. You are a good player, so over time you should have the advantage.

Thanks for the recognition of the Veneno Team victory. It was soooo sweet. I must give credit to the great Chief. He was a big help in sweating me and getting me to the money. Thanks Chief, you are awesome!!!

Thanks for the kind words. No problem veneno, it was fun. Team Veneno has been on a good run in the cheap MTT's within the last month or so. I see 1st place lurking around the corner for a lucky Team Veneno member in the near future.
