A Different kind of You Decide

Nothing too exciting going on with poker. I am continuing to play 5/10 at UB. I have to say that I didn't really care much for the software when I first started; but I like it now... especially the mini view. What started out as a good month has deteriorated into a bad month. I am down $300 for the month so I will do what I can to get back to positive before the end of the month. With hands like the one I'm going to show you, I doubt I'll make it.... so in this edition of You Decide... I'm not looking for what you would of done; but rather who is the bigger donkey... me or the other bozo.... Anyway here it is..

AdamHutch is at seat 0 with $349.
katsu is at seat 1 with $302.
Zachy Chan is at seat 2 with $137.

ForgiveMeGod is at seat 5 with $153.

Hand #7897409-1753 Summary:

$3 is raked from a pot of $142.
DuffMann wins $139 with straight, eight high

Sure, I had no business betting on that board; but what is Duffman thinking with 74s... first off to call 4 bets preflop with that... then with an obvious flush on the board, he calls with his straight. Now, I knew going in that he was a bad player which is why I pushed... The other guy folded KK...

Well, my HU challenge is over.. I finished a marathon session with Mourn. We must of played at least 10 hands... the old flopped full house gets me every time. I enjoyed it very much. Good luck to the rest of you.

I would say you had every right to be in that pot. You had the highest wired pair and your betting pattern showed it.

Sorry about your Heads Up loss. I'm right there with you in the loser's lounge. Go figure! The two best players out already (I'm awaiting GCox's indignant response...).

As for that hand, he was definitely the Donkey Kong to your Donkey Kong, Jr. In fact, there were enough donkeys to start a petting zoo. It happens though. Good luck looking forward.

Indignant??? Me????

I'm just happy to be going to the 2nd round and still have a chance. I sure liked both of your chances better than mine before we started. I just caught better cards.

As to the hand, I can't believe some of the hands you post are at $5/$10. 4-7suited staying in that hand after the flop? Fishy indeed. I actually like how you played the hand very much. I think I would have played it exactly the same way.....and then broken my mouse when the moron showed 4-7.

I need an attitude adjustment though.

what I have learned in my short time is that some people just cannot lay a hand down if they're in one of the blinds, no matter what.
