Bloggerpods 3 – Starting table = final table

Started out with Waffles, Duggle, Miami Don and our host at table 1…played a mix of tight-passive (early on)/tight-aggressive poker and was successfull. After nearly two hours we sit down at the final table…

Bloggerpods 3 Final table

…then right before the second break the following hand comes down:

I’m in the BB with 88, Dnasty raises it 3BB from the SB, I call…flop comes down 8-9-10 rainbow, so unless he’s got me set over set I’m golden, he insta-pushes…I insta-call…he shows AA…nice! So no straight to fear…dealer does his magic and drops a friggin A on the river…no 9144 chips for me, but out in 8th place (6 ITM, top 3 get the ipods).

Now I’m not going to go off in a Hellmuth style rant or moan like The Mouth after getting yet another junk kicking…after all it was best hand in, best hand out, but considering the fact that the money didn’t go in preflop, there’s at least a little thing to moan about: flop 86/9 (5 tie), turn 77/5 (18 tie)…friggin river 0/100…and a Mike “The Mouth” Matusow quote is in order “There’s no justice in poker…”…thank you.

God damn it! FFS!

…and before I forgot it due to the whole steaming like a fresh pile of poo thing: Once again thanks to Mike for hosting!

Thanks for the comment and it was good playing with you. That was a rough beat you took, Dnasty delt me one too but that’s the way the cards fall sometimes.

Hi there! Well, as I wrote in my post…it was basically best in best out, but still sucks when you get resucked by a two outer on the river…ah well, we all know that it happens – I still felt like hitting something though…but after some cool down time it was back to ‘s all good mode 😉

On another note: no matter what the result, it’s always fun and a challenge to play against all the fellow bloggers! So, I guess, we’ll meet again…(WWdN, DADI, etc etc)…

Almost looks like how I got bumped from that table. No justice in poker, whatsoever…

Good game!

Yeah, that was the 55 vs 66 hand…flopped set rivered by a runner straight, yuck. That was ugly, too! Good game Joxum!

Oof. That’s rough. Crazy with four cards to a straight out there, too.

Yeah, it sucked ass…like I already said in the post: you don’t expect that on the river if there’s only a 5% chance for your opponent to scoop, but then again: you never expect the two-outer, but it happens. More power to D, at least he put my chips to good use and got himself first price (30GB video ipod)…

Yeah it was rough, I got lucky. I’ll take it though, it seems I am usually on the recieving end of that. Honestly even when I look at it again I probably push there again in that situation. Good Game.

Well, we’re all on the receiving end sometime or another, it’s just the way it works and I’m not blaming anyone (except the “poker gods”)…
Sidenote: the only reason the result of the hand ticked me off that much is that it seems I can’t catch a friggin break in blogger tourneys – well I can, but not when it’s crucial, at least not recently (WWdN: 11th, 20th, 21st, 11th, ….now 8th here; okay, I was not always that far ahead in the deciding hand, but I wasn’t all that far behind (if at all) either…it’s just that in the end it doesn’t matter I’m the one cursing…(sometimes self-inflicted: there’s obviously no reason to cry when you get really short and a big stack calls your push, it’s just strict pot odds…but if you’re far ahead or dominating the other hand and you lose, what seems like every friggin hand, it makes you wonder if you should quit))…

But then you don’t…as there’s always the next game 😉

So all that is left to say is: good game and cya you either at the WWdN later on or the DADI tomorrow…or both 🙂
