A Poker Player and a Gentleman
I could tell you all how I took down the Mookie. It was pretty cool. I basically got good hands combined with that eerie radar you sometimes have. Every time I folded AK I would have lost, every time I called with it I beat a small pocket pair. I also got a lot of Aces. Duggles will tell you how I was really lucky and hey it is partially true. Busting Hoyazo was fun too.
However I want to commend my HU partner instead. GaryCox was the small stack at the table and played typical Gary from what I could tell. He raised his big hands. Was not afraid to get into it with a good hand or fold a bad one. Classic Gary Style. He held on and made the right moves until it was finally HU.
That is not the unbelievable thing though. Mr. GCox changed his game up so drastically that I did not know if I was coming or going when we got HU. I mean it was like Satan possessed the guy and some aggro-demon came out and started picking on me. Now I like to think I am good HU. Especially with a nice 4/5-1 chip lead.. but Gary played as well or better than me HU. The decisive hand came down to, well, Poker.
The Flop comes out 7h8cQc. Gary has the made part of Poker. Q7. I have the draw part of Poker QcTc. I had so many outs it made the hand a 50/50 coinflip and when the T came on the turn Gary took it well.
I was extremely concerned about losing this game several times. Great Game Sir! I did not know you had it in you to play that way HU but I will never underestimate you again.
