(or, how to shove your chips into the nizzles and feel OK about it)
Well, that was a pleasant way to start the week....
Only two hands of note in last night's Riverchasers... the first is a prime example why although I've made more money, BoneDaddy has more points in the BBT4 series so far...
Blinds 20/40, I have 2905 in the big blind with 9d4d (lol, I know)
Bone_Daddy84 opens for 120 in MP, all fold, I defend 'cause I fling poo like a monkee.
Flop AJTr. check check.
Turn 8d, putting a flush draw up, and now I've got a straight draw as well, but I check... and Bone checks behind..
River 6d, so I got there, and I may as well bet, so I lead for 300 into the 260 pot.
Bone tanks... and raises to 955... I don't like it, but he needs to show me a flush in this spot... and he shows me the nuts, Kd7d.
Ugh. Now if the positions are reversed, I might bet the flop and DEFINITELY bet the turn with the nut flush and straight draws... and jeez, K-high might be the best hand, build a pot for value, fold out weak jacks or eights... and if it's not the best hand, you have nine billion outs to the nizzles on the river to get paid off, so whatever...
But that's me. I like building pots and accumulating chips. Bone's done very well surviving and making hands when he has to, and doesn't gambool as much as I do, that's clear.
Hey, he got me to pay him off the only way I could (no way I bet if I make the straight with the Q, a King's in his range too much of the time) so well played on his end, I got pwned.
Never should be calling a river raise to begin with against most BBT players = you see the nuts or close to it every freaking time.
Definite bet/fold spot - villain dependent, of course.
Second hand of note, blinds are 40/80, I've built back up to 2300, I just openraised KK to no action, so now I've got 77 in MP.
Folds around, I openraise to the same 225. noollab and Julius_Goat call in the blinds. They both cover me, but not by much.
Flop A23 all clubs, I have the 7c.
Blinds check, I pot to 525. noollab tanks and flats, julius tanks and folds... I immediately think noollab either flopped the flush or has a pair-and-club type hand.
Turn 7d. Shit. Well, I'm stuck now. Noollab checks, and while it's likely I'm shoving into a flush, there's no way I can let him see a fourth club for free, and he may call with a Ax or two pair hand I have crushed...
Besides, I can root for the board to pair anyway.
I shove, noollab calls with KcJc for the second nizzles. I do not get the board to pair on the river, out 51 of 64.
Boo. Boo. Boo. I hate flooshes...
Gee, and I have the Baatan Death March of tournaments, limit hold them, to look forward to tomorrow. Yippie.
(more reverse mojo pls, k thx)
