Radio Free Waffles
A blog community in bloom is a beautiful thing. Please join me in welcoming Amy Calistri - Calistri’s Corner, Change 100, Joe Speaker, and Maudie. I can’t say enough about them or even begin to describe my feelings at how pleased I am that they are on board.
I have to say although I shall always call you corporate sellouts I am glad to see that Pokerworks has not effected your ability to write what you want. It was great to see Iggy post an Uber with everything from nasty twins, to Wundermouth, to who the hell knows what.. even some poker. Now that is rare. So keep it going you sellouts.
Me. How has Radio Free Waffles been going? I have normally run badly. I am even used to it to some degree. However this is really sickening. I final tabled a 180-SNG only to get all my monies in on a 234 flop against 88 with the all powerful 99. I had some worry that he might have a higher pocket pair.. but I had seen this tool chip leader make some of the worse plays ever. So I went with my guy and pushed it in on the flop. A whole 17K of chips. I would have been the new chip leader.. instead the eight on the turn dashes my hopes.
The only hands I seem able to win these days are ones I need runner-runner to win. I have actually won several of these and I am just stunned. For the most part these hands have been awfuckit hands where I knew I was dead, not always how dead, and just was pissed off and decided to go to bed. Of course when I want to call it a night I catch the only 2 cards in the deck runner-runner that I could possibly get.
If I play a token and have 2K left.. and push against the 4K stack with AK.. and he has K9.. the flop comes K9xxxx. If I have 9T and the flop comes AT8 and the other guy has A8.. I catch runner nines.. it is just some of the craziest shit I have ever seen. I am not sure what to do. I guess I will keep playing through it. I am down like 180- for the past week so not a huge amount to catch up. It would be nice if the universe went back to normal and let me win a 80%'er or two once in a while..
