Oh yeah, because I like to go deep in them and then do something really stupid.
The inaugural pokerstars blogger tourney was just exited by yours truly.
I did well for a while, running my chips up to 25th or so with 800 remaining, but then a cold spell of cards hit and as the blinds went up, my chips went down.
My final hand I held QQ on the button with 10k in chips, two limpers to me and I made it 2000 to go with blinds at 200/400 ante 25. One caller. Flop was 3-hearts with a King. Checked to me, I bet 4k into a 5k pot and he c/r's me all in which I call. At this point i'm praying he's drawing to his hearts as I dont see him limping AK but no... A3 hearts and i'm toast.
It was a nice flop for him, but I should have checked immediately on that flop and conserved my chips. DUMBASS.
Anyhoo, thats why I dont play tournaments... because I like to go 2 hours and then fuck it all up.
On the upside, I got to play with Matt "Jacksup" Matros for a few hands though we never tangled.
I finished ahead of a lot of players who I respect (277 out of 1473), so I figure i didn't donk it up totally.
Thanks PokerStars... you're the best!
My cash games have not treated me well this weekend. One of my first hands today I get AA and re-raise an early raiser, one donk calls, the raiser pushes for another $10, I re-raise to $50 and the donk calls. Flop is Kxx two hearts. I push my remaining 43, donk calls... blank.. heart.
Guess what the donk has? thats right bitches, J9s in hearts. That silly fucker called $50 of real no-nonsense money at a 100NL table pre-flop with fucking Jack Nine Suited.
After dropping a bit more, i worked it back to only be down $40 for the day.
I wish stars had a buddy list.
