Lost Focus

I went deep in the No-Skillz game last night. Then I lost focus and flamed out of both that and the MTT I was running at Bodog. Some nights you just get tired and stop thinking. I find PLO very difficult to play because it does require a lot of concentration to win. On the good side I pretty much covered my entry in knockouts including some of my favorite people like Bayne and Swimmom. I flamed out when the blinds were 1K and I had 8K left. I tried to pull a move on Astin when he had two pair. I knew he had two pair but I thought he might consider a set. In actuality it would have been better to bluff the turn. If I was more focused at that point I would have just folded. To add insult to the hand he had almost exactly the same cards as I did except I had a ten and he had a nine so I was drawing VERY thin. Oh well. Just read that Smokkee won it all. He was playing a good game. Congrats.

It was a lot of fun seeing Fuel complain as he misplayed almost every hand. Now I fully accept I suck at PLO. As Bayne often tells me. However Fuel was making mistakes even I would not make. Like calling me down with Jacks unimproved on an overcard board. Overplaying pocket pairs like a maniac. It was pretty funny. The best hand was when someone jammed a low all club flop and Fuel called with Queens no clubs and won the hand and said "WTF!" to the other player. I say "WTF! Both of you donks". It was good to see him even if he did not donk off much to me.

In the Bodoggy I went out early. I am perfectly fine with my play in the hand. I had the best hand on the turn and Chad as he does often in these small stakes game just jammed his draw on the turn and hit on the river. I am not really sad that I got in as a 65% favorite with one card to go. I also got bumped in my SNG the same way when Ace high flush draw jammed the turn against my queens. I even had one of his outs. Guess sometimes it is not your night. Chad pushmonkeyed out of the Skillz game too. I have to assume he does not play these things like he would a normal MTT otherwise I can not see how he ever wins anything.

I guess we are enemies again too. I have been busy and lazy about doing his Poker Blogger DB. Honestly I was not all that excited to make something for free for the guy and have him profit off it. He told me in IM last night "DO NOT IM ME EVER AGAIN! I ONLY TALKED TO YOU FOR THE POKERDB". Now some people think he was joking but I doubt it. I sort of had that feeling from the beginning anyways. I cried myself to sleep. It was very traumatic. He also said I am a failure as a nerd. That one hurt. As I cashed the dozen side job checks for the month and await my nice sized paycheck on Friday I reflected on what a failure I am. I am so ashamed. I always thought I overachieved for my limited intellect. Oh well. Time to reassess life because if an immature donkey tells you that your a failure it must be true.

I will see you all tonight at the Mookie. I really hate this event the most of all. I used to like it a lot but now I curse that rabbit spawner every Wednesday. I may forgive him if I win one of these. Thursday nights Riverchasers I will also attend. Now Riverfuckers as opposed to Mookie is one of my favorite games. If I stay patient in it I usually do very well.

Waffles from what I have seen of your PLO play it is not possible to believe you have not already committed every possible mistake.

I don't think it is possible for Fuel to have broken new ground

Waffles watching you play PLO is like watching someone rape my Mom. It is fun for the first few minutes and then you just want to curl up in a ball and cry.

Just because you lasted longer, it doesn't mean that you are better.

This applies to more than just poker.

So you know.

For PLO advice I'd advise to watch how the Dookie played out last night.

Just push and pray 30 times in a row and win.
