Is the Doom Switch on?

I feel for you man. Your list of hands runs like my October did. It really just SUCKS. Cooler after cooler after cooler after suckout after suckout... Not much you can do except play through it and thank whatever God you pray to that you have the bankroll to get you through these annoying times.

The hand in question: I call the river bet. I can't even answer why, but these are the hands that continually get me to lose money. I would not have lead the turn though. If you check the turn and he checks behind, then his river bet is a lot less expensive. I'm not surprised if he shows up with an AJ / AQ, or a set or a flush.

BTW - Do you know anyone who has the Iron Man medals and wants to do a HU tourney to convert the $75 token into cash (i.e. create a HU tourney, then chop first hand to convert the $69+6 tourney into a $69 chop cash?)

WW, In the JJ hand, it's a pretty close call, because your villain is almost never bluffing here. You've fired 2 barrels and his line doesn't make any sense. But, your hand is so strong that he still may be v-betting with worse. A slow-played 66 or 77 makes some sense, and would AJ. I think you have to call just given odds and the possibility of villain value-pwning himself. But yes, you will see a made flush here a good amount of the time.

If it makes you feel any better, my October was rancid. Unless there is another WW running around, I'm assuming it's you I bumped with the other night. I took some time off from the blog, but am getting back into it. Nice to see everyone's still around!

1st hand is a bit rough but based on that action its possible to find a fold but it's difficult without a read. All that minbetting tells me that he isn't reraising & getting it in with less than AK, A2, or 22.

2nd hand with AK, I'm folding my AK when he shoves, based on preflop action, cold call of a 4bet is going to be KK, AA, and AK or (least likely) a small PP. you split against one of those hands and get stacked against the other two. his shove screams flopped set.

JJ hand is a crying call. His range is too wide for a fold. Interested to know what he showed up with (by the way, 19/7 players aren't bluffing but it is sometimes hard to tell if they have the nuts or are value betting something they feel is the nuts such as AJ or a set). Now that I think about it...he has a flush, a crappy one, but a flush and a fold isn't terrible in my opinion.

Last hand is a straight up cooler. Forget about it and move on as there is nothing you can do to avoid that one.

There is no doubt that folding was an option on the prior hands.

On the hand question, it came down to did I believe or did I not. Probably due to the earlier hands, I did not. So, if I do not believe him, then why just call? So what did I do, I shoved and he called with the nut flush.

It is truly amazing to look at decisions that are made when steaming or tilting.

I finally took the advice of a poker buddy and called it quits.
