Bloggers are Fishy
Do you need more proof? Here is my Poker Tracker ranking of the top loosers I have seen play NLHE.
If you see your name there.. You must be a fish.
I finished a fishtastic 11th in the Hoyazo tonight. Totally pissed off at the game tonight really. I hoped for a better finish.. although Jeciimd was Bubble Boy in the points tonight which is kind of funny. I guess he may have taken what I said to heart and decided to play.. NAHHHH..
And now for something different..
While you're here, check out how I got nailed for a $860 pot in a donkeyment confrontation that I think never should have happened. I can only play a hand so perfectly, but sometimes the poker gods rape my anus for a huge pile anyways, no matter how little regard for his money the donkey at the table shows.
I call a pot-raise preflop with pocket JTs. S00ted connectors you know! I flop TPTK, Chaaa ching!! and figure it is probably good here. Seeing that my opponent is the incredible donk of legend: HOYAZO, I decide to masterfully give him some rope to hang himself with.
Instead of doing a standard c-bet Hoyazo then decides to check behind me. He knows he is likely behind and somehow resists the urge to bet into me. I might have given him credit for a strong hand here if he bet out but his weakness lets me know the real deal.
So now we come to the turn and it is a pretty little six. I have now used my incredible deductive skills and narrowed his hand down to AK. It is time to rope my dope in. He has one card left to come and I know if I show weakness I can pull him into this hand.
OK so even though I called his pot-raise preflop, and an Jack fell on the flop , donkey raises me 360 into a $260 pot. He has to figure he's beat here and drawing to just two overcards, but I guess he feels compelled to throw out the standard size raise anyways. It's pronounced FORM - yew - lay - ik. Well, I've learned from some of the hands I've had up on the blog this week, and all the comments I've received -- let him bluff off MORE chips to me. I mean let's review here. I am a 86% favorite and I am letting this donkey bet into me. He has misplayed this hand from the very beginning and I have trapped him brilliantly. Now I just need to avoid that 13% chance on the river and I will be able to take down a nice pot.
A $960 pot, raped from me and given to the donkey who not only can't keep himself from betting out with a clear loser on the turn, but he couldn't even fold to my nice bet on the turn. That generous man might as well have been writing me a check when he called that turn raise. Donks who just can't get away from their hands, even when they get caught essentialy bluffing with just two outs. Un. fucking. Believable.
This has been a Hot Hand of the day brought to you by the Letter H and the Cartoon Character Grey Box McGruffy the crime square.
At least I took my wrath out on the 3/6 Razz table to the toon of a $150 pot to pay for the Hoyazo and my cash game escapades of the day. Break even never felt so good. Serves those fuckers right for calling me down with a 987 and KJJ. Fuckers. My 7 is all powerful! Even if I rivered it. See you Wednesday at the Mookie!
