Happy New Years

Damn online poker. I busted out of an SNG with two hands. AA and AA. I was against a Gutshot Straight draw and two pairs QQ and TT in these hands. I did the odds just to torture myself but the hand I was against two people with pocket pairs I was 82% favorite. The worse hand (TT) won of course. The other hand I was 65% favorite pre-flop against his 9To and 79% on the flop when he was drawing to his gutshot. Why the hell do I bother with raising anyways..

On a lighter note I was playing Cribbage on Yahoo! and someone said that the site was rigged.. who knew..

No it doesnt suck.

How many times are you going to go on about losing with a 65% favourite?!?!

Thats poker, and it happens to us all.

I used to think you were doing it all tongue-in-cheek but I now think you actually believe you should win your marginal favourites, and races, all the time.

Grow up, or stop playing.

No need to hate. Yes it is poker, and yes we've all got our bad beat stories. That doesn't change the fact that it was still a favored hand, and not a coin flip. That's actually been one of the best things about poker on TV...seeing the percentages. It's nice to see that even a 4 to 1 favorite can get sucked out.

First off I was 80%+ favorite, but besides that.. What did I delete? Nothing is EVER removed from this blog and if you say differently your a liar . I may whine alot but I keep it honest.
