Instant Tragedy

March 11, 2009 at 11:34 pm


Yup, once again HeffMike with 10 outs twice catches his miracle river to take me from the Mookie. No Hand Histories, I’ve made some aggressive moves to try and not be as meek as I used to but KQ? Really Mike?

CALLS! Come on Mike. CALLS!!


I’ve had my bad running, but its ending soon.

I hope… for my monitors sake.

    Stack sizes… If you’ve got more behind when you shove, or I don’t have as much left if I call and lose, maybe I fold.

    But once I raise and you shove, I’m not folding getting over 2-1 when midpairs can easily be in your range.

    That’ll happen, dude.

    I’d think my range would be any pp and Ax.

    It just seems that I get my money in good this last week (Cept in the skillz cause Omadraw is a crapshoot anyway) and I’ve been on the wrong end of a bad beat stick.

    Oh Well.

    It’ll take a lot to keep me down.
