Booyah! I AM A LUCKBOX! Scott told me so. Actually he said to be lucky you must feel lucky. All Yoda like. So I decide to be lucky.

I play JT for a 3xBB raise when I am low on chips. It is not necessarily the best play but alot of people are in and I like JTc. The flop comes a very nice all club array. I AM THE LUCKBOX! It is also, fortunatly, all low cards. Why is this good? Because the other guy has 88 and decides the best way to protect his dead hand is to go all in. I am up to 4K now.

It is down to three people and I call a min raise with 65o. I kind of am channeling Doyle Brunson in the Tourneyment of Champions HU final table play. The flop comes a SWEEEEET Q66. I AM A LUCKBOX! The other guy has TT and I bust him.

The final LUCKBOX move is as follows. I flop three hearts with an A4, the Ace of hearts. I have a 10K vs 3K chip lead or something along those lines. So on the flop I decide I might as well put my boy all in. He flips his Rockets with a triumphant little smile and the turn does not help me so I yell at the monitor "I WILL WIN BECAUSE I AM THE LUCKBOX!". Guess what.. the river card was a heart. I sucked out and took first in my SNG. I like being a LUCKBOX!

The worst thing about all that affirmations crap is that a lot of the time, it works! It's especially bad for cynical little bastards like me.

Except for the JT, I don't see a luckbox moment in there...

Just playing the odds imo.

I am no where close to CJ Luckbox Status. The JT was not a whole lot of luck, just a REALLY good flop. Catching the 4th flush card I needed vs AA was some amount of luck. Flopping three sixes was kinda lucky too.. lol. I guess only catching my flush was a real luckbox-suckout moment.

At last... a way to buy our own luck at the tables! And it comes in neatly packaged luckboxes! God, how I need one of those right now.

Congrats on the 1st place win SirW :)
