Well, it WAS a good weekend

Isn't it funny how things can be going fine for the weekend until your team loses it's football game and it sours the whole weekend. The Cowboys losing last night just ruined my whole weekend which pokerwise, it went pretty well online and bad again live.

I played my monthly poker league and again was taken out early. I had steadily moved up in chips for the first hour and then I switched tables. My very first hand, I am in late position and somebody raises in MP. I look down to QQ. In position and my first hand at table, I just call. Flop comes, KQTr. Raiser checks. I've only played with this guy a few times; but this check seemed weird. Effective stacks are around 4 or 5K. Blinds were 50/100. There is like 1100 in pot and I decide to bet out and bet 825 and he immediately goes all in. It certainly smelled like a monster; but at the end of the day, I couldn't fold my set and the board didn't pair up and I was out early. Does anybody fold here?

As far as online goes, Friday was just one of those days where things went the right way and had a pretty big day. Saturday, on the other hand, started the exact opposite until this hand.

I didn't get too much for it; but it turned things around from being a 2 buyin loser to a 1/2 buyin winner by the end of the day. Sunday was an up day as well so I certainly can't complain for the weekend as I had a 31.39 bb/100 winning rate.

No realy interesting hands. Just the usual call on the river hand.

With AQ really being the only thing I fear, can I really fold this?

I would fear Q9 more than AQ here given the flop action. But since he didn't raise when I made the weak turn bet, I think I am paying him off if he does have it here.

Obviously cannot fold with the two pairs at this point. And you played it sufficiently weak on the turn that you've made it even more likely that he would bet with a less-than-nuts hand on this river.

He was definitely loose enough to make this a pretty easy call. He had QTo
