"Would you take my picture, cause I won't even move."
I know it means something else, but im referencing my last 2 blogger tournaments with this phrase.
In the big game it played out like this: I won a $75 token into the game then I unceremoniously get bounced when I raise from the button with Qd-10d. One limper luckbox Bayne himself. Flop is Q-9-x rainbow. Bayne checks to me and I bet the pot. Bayne raises. At this point I know he flopped a set. I KNOW IT. So what do I do? Raise all-in. Why? No logical explanation other than I refuse to believe him. Or rather, I refuse to believe how unlucky I am. Like clockwork he calls and shows his set o 9s. Bye me.
Tonight in the MATH. I have pocket 10s early on in the SB and Mike Maloney raises from MP. Bunch of people call, and my first instinct is to raise, but I just limp in. Flop is all small 8-6-x. I check, MM bets the pot and i just call thinking he has a big A but not much more. Check round on the turn, I check the river when it comes out an A. He bets 250. Now keep in mind I put him on a big A on the flop. So again I call the silly bet. He turns over not an A, but 6c-8c for 2 pair.
Same tourney but 6 hands later 10-10 in late position. Buddydank min raises from UTG. I know Buddy to be a tight player, and his min raise is really suspicious to me. This time I raise. Only he calls. AGAIN an all low flop. He checcks, I bet the pot. He raises. I know I'm beat, I KNOW IT. I put him on J-J due to his suspicious slowplay. So of course I re-raise all-in. Well he doesn't have J-J, just A-A. I'm out again, yay me. Then he tells everyone on the radio how basically lured me into his A-A trap. Its not that I didn't know he had me beat, I just played stupidly of course.
"Cause I won't even move..."
I hate this game sometimes...
