Without Bad Luck......

OK we have all heard that saying before. Tonight was just another night of living the dream. It contained bad luck and bad judgement all though I guess I'm ok with the decision.

Let's start with HUC6. On to round 3 tonight and playing the guy that handed it to me last time, Mr Alan RecessRampage . Like I said, my matches are usually pretty quick. So, of course Match1 lasted only 51 hands. The one hand that got me on the wrong side of the tracks was fairly early on.

Blinds still 10/20. Alan does a stand 3x and I call with 85o. I flop second pair on T82 flop and I bet out 60 into a 100 chip bot and Alan just calls. Turn comes a 2. (meanwhile something happens in SNG that I am playing. More on that later). I bet out 250 and again a call. River was a Q and I throw out 3rd bullet and get called. He had 52o. Nothing wrong with what he did. Just bad luck for me and I didn't slow down. Alan really dominates from there and I got caught bluff pushing preflop to his raise. My K6s was no match for his TT.

Match 2

A whopping 14 hands. Sometimes, you just truly run bad. I lost the 4th hand when my AK was no good against 76. Had to let that one go on turn. Final Hand

Hit my gin card only to find out that he had Gin much early. Good going RR. I'll be pulling for you to take her down this time. He's got another good rematch next go around. So, for the second year in a row, RR wins 2 straight against me. I need to get on the other side of the bracket from him... lol.

Also played 1 SNG while I was waiting for Alan. I won't go into much details as I finished 6th; but here is how I run:

AA early on. All in against maniac that has been splashing his chips everywhere. He has 88. Guess what comes on turn.

A little later. KK. 4 handed. 3 of us (including 88 guy from above) get all in.. runner, runner gives the board a straight and we chop 3 ways.

Death blow. QQ All in against AQ.. Ace on flop and IGHN.

The first two beats were followed by me chipping back up; only to give them back.

I love poker.

Throw all of that in and then add this. Thanks to ice storm going on in ST Louis, our 7AM flight to Disney has been cancelled already (as of 3PM previous day). This was a direct flight which is obviously the way to go especially when you are toting 2 little wonkas (4 yrs and 1 1/2). So our flight is now tentatively scheduled (yes, ice still coming down and more over night) to leave at 2:30 and fly to Miami where we have a little over an hour lay over and then into Orlando. So instead of originally getting into Orlando at 10:30ish AM. We will be getting in at 9:30PM. Bad Beat!!! So, we more or less lose a day of fun and sun. Bad Beat!!!

Oh Well,

Have a good week!!!
