dueling tourneys - kapow! if you thought I sucked before....

Ok, in one corner, the AIPS series, where I've won twice over the last year, the sole double banana winner....

In the other, the fourth BBT2 tournament, where I might as well just randomly bet and raise without looking at my holding...

One PLO8, one doublestack holdem. Let's see if I can get deep in either one. Ha!.

104 runners in the Riverchasers tourney. 88 in AIPS.  Let er rip.

boy, that was fast. 87th in PLO8. another cooler. limped four way pot, I have AKQ5, flop comes K95. I lead out, original limper reraises pot. I don't like it but call. Turn 8, I check, he pots, I feel like I have to be behind, but call anyway. of course, he has KKJ2. dummy 1.

Level 2 of the HE event. I raise the button with K2 because I feel like it, the BB min reraises and I call., flop A52, check check, turn 8, check check. river 2, he leads for 400 into a 500 pot. I min reraise because I'm stupid instead of just calling. he shoves. I call KNOWING i'm behind and yes, get shown AA.

Oh, after that I'm short, stick my last 140 in the pot - against another AA. out in 99th.

I could not play any worse if I tried. This is why I've gone from playing 400NL a year ago to donking around in $5 SnGs now. Because I am stupid. and bad. and know I am beat, but try to make hero calls against villains who NEVER are bluffing.

Let me go beat myself up now.

so sick of me me me.

   Level 2 of the Mookie, EP raises 3x the blinds, I make a standard reraise on the button with KK. I figure I'm getting fucked this hand anyway, as deep as we are. He calls, flop QJx rainbow. He checks, I c-bet 2/3 pot. He tanks, then reraises pot. I figure I'm getting slowrolled beat, but shove anyway like a dodo and get shown AA.
    I think last time I played I raised QQ in EP, had a button cold call, then I bet a ten-high flop, got min-reraised, shoved, and got shown TT.
    Before that, I'm pretty sure I got deep, open raised JJ in the small blind, got shoved into by the big blind's AK, called, flopped a J, but watched the turn and river come QT.

    I'm sure I've played horribly badly numerous times too - in fact, I probably play the worst of any semiregular player - but I swear this is the one tourney I play consistently where it doesn't matter what I do, some avalanche falls on my head to bounce me out. Basically, call me with any two cards preflop, because if you spike your two or three outer, I'm paying you off like an idiot. Oh, and if you actually have a hand? It'll hold, don't worry about it. I'll just stack off into you anyway.

    I would like to play well in this BBT2, but who am I kidding? I suck, or get coolered, or both. Probably, I get coolered because I suck.

    At least I still have a job for now. Woot.

I'm obviously not good enough or smart enough.

Yes, I know it is a $5 donk-n-go, I didn't raise enough preflop, that's a horrible flop for me, I should expect to get called by two pair/set/pair +draw often and be way behind, villain pretty much has to call the second push, yaddayaddayadda.

But nowhere near the bubble (7 players, 4 cash), and with over 20BB preflop - who the hell stacks off with T8? I'm obviously not any good at this game, because I can't figure out how you can do this. At least have KQ or QJ or ANYTHING reasonable here. There isn't any holding I have on this flop that T8 has a reasonable shot against - I have to have paint or a big pocket pair every time here to push a pot-sized bet into two callers on that flop in a raised pot. Sigh.
