Smokee Sucks Out

I suppose people might say Smokee made a good play pushing in on the flop after I raised 400 but I have a different take on it. Statistics never lie. Nuff said. Good luck playing that way man. Ahh well.. I hate losing early in the Mook it is one of my favorite games. It is funny how one hand can look so good and be so bad. I mean on face value you would say "Hey, Smokee is wayyyy ahead", but eat your wheaties and learn your odds kids. No hard feelings anyways Smokee, I know your style of play is aggressive and you actually probably somehow though you were ahead. Hope you use my chips for something good in the Mook at least.

after, my preflop raise, i wuz pretty sure you missed that flop. you reraised my c-bet but, i know how aggressive you are. i figured you for a bluff on the reraise. obv, i pushed hoping for a fold. when you called and i saw you had the straight & flush draw, i figured i wuz toast. i wuz lucky my hand held up. i would've made the same call in your position.

sorry you got knocked out so early but, it's war out there.

Yea, poka sucks.

But I agree with your move, I think these are calls worth making in the first level or 2 of these tourniments, if you hit with the odds in your favor, your a big stack bully the rest of the way.

By the way, sorry for the bad karma that I brought with me to your cash game , wifey called when i started, so I couldn't even girly chat with you, and then, you made that call. What were you thinking?

So 60/40 is a bad beat now?


Granted I don't agree with his play pushing no clubs and just two overs and just about any hand you could hold would be ahead (any pair, flush/straight draw, a better ace), it doesn't make it a "beat".

You're better then thinking this way.

"Smokee Sucks Out" Hmmm. This is not an unordinary hand, and it's definitely not a bad beat =)

i can understand why my play in that hand seems questionable but, if you want to get all your chips in early in a tournament with nothing but a draw, you can expect to bust from time to time.

i figured i had folding equity on that push.

It wasnt a "Horrible" beat, just an interesting hand.. When you look at the cards face up maybe Smokkee makes the same move and I do too..

However looking at a strong bet on a scary flop you at least have to consider I have anything from pp to a draw to even the four where your drawing dead.. There are better places for you to call off your stack IMHO. If you folded to my initial 400 bet you would have been no worse off. Down sixty or something. I made a play with a 70% chance to win and I like it early in a tourney.

Strong bet at a scary flop...

Was this because of the player or the flop?

There's certainly some players I'd give credit to having me at a big disadvantage after the flop and betting pattern.

obv, i wasn't playing the board, i was playing the player. i felt like you were trying to make a steal move. i countered with my own steal move. the ultimate commitment to the pot, i pushed.

i wuz really surprised at the call and the phat draw you hand. like i said, i wuz lucky you missed.

although, you had the best odds of winning, i wuz ahead when the chips went in so i didn't regret the move at all.
