I will be the Hokage
Not saying Stb played post flop poorly as I mentioned in my previous post. He got the best possible flop he could ever hope for. I also said I was pot committed by the time we made the flop so I had no choice but to continue on. Just lamenting a dominating hand losing and the dissapointment of playing poker for hours for nothing.
Even after the flop, although I have lost the edge on the high I am close to a coinflop to win the high and have a great shot at the low which demonstrates the importance of playing scooping hands in O8. I am also technically winning at this point.
As the numbers show he only has a 22% chance to make any money on this hand even though he has alot of draws. So he risked 10-15% of his stack, got the best possible flop he could imagine, and still only has a 22% chance of making any money off this hand.
The turn murders me. Finally after all the money has already gone in the odds switch fully to Stb. ALTHOUGH I still have a 35% chance to still take half the pot.
And I do not improve on the river. Thats poker. So be it. I want to say this again too I do not fault Stb's play. It was not bad. It was a bad situation for him and he got lucky. Of course I welcome the comments as always. They show your depth of knowlege about the game. As you are suggesting I should fold with 2xBB left and still at the very least a coinflip to win or tie. Winning poker there.
In addition I love how when I make a move and someone else is ahead "Oh yeah, they made a great call, you suck", of course when I am ahead "Yeah Waffles, you suck, never should have called there". At least be somewhat consistant.. oh wait, you are consistant in not ever giving me any credit for anything. My mistake again. I humbly bow to your incredible skills.
Fuck it I am on full off rant mode so I might as well finish. I find posting and getting advice in comments stupid. You get such a wide variety of players and people that it means nothing. Half the people are just not at a place where they can give any kind of meaningful advice. The other half are so inconsistant and just want to disagree with everything you say and only make points that prove their own way to play.
The real problem is you can not get a feel for a table or a game or anything from a hand history. It is one little tiny grain of salt in the great tapastry that is the game. The only good thing I see about the comments is it shows that almost everyone playing poker today can not lay down a weak hand. Probably since they have been playing online so much that their opponents often have weaker hands. It gives me great confidence that playing a slightly-more loose style will pay off in spades against narrow minded thinkers. I know I am not there yet but I feel some great things coming my way once I fully understand what I want to accomplish. So I am probably being WAYY too sensitive and WAYYY too pissy but I am in a ranting kind of mood so anyway fuck you all.
