No joy, no joy, no joy…

…what else can I say?! Stacked some fools at the cash tables. Cool. Then in return got stacked by some chasing mofos who can’t even spell poker ( 😉 )…

I’m really doubting that I’ll be able to even finish the bonus on nine, so, I guess it’ll be either bust or getting the remaining 80 points with a next to nothing roll, as I don’t see myself putting any more money into this trash-can…

I’m not getting too deep into the tinfoil-hat stuff, but it’s just mind-boggling how often this crap (see the following hands of the night) happened to me over the last few weeks…and I can’t even really blame the donkeys for chasing – after all the money card hits with such a regularity that you can almost forget about odds and outs…this is just sick…
Hand #1: Jc8c, flop 6s7h9h, I lead out…two callers…turn 10c…bingo…I lead out, player to my left reraises, player to his left calls….I push…both players call and I’m shouting at the screen “no heart…one time!”…Qh hits on the river…damn you nine, damn you fucking chaser(s)….showdown…me: straight Q high, player to my left: Js8s, straight Q high…player to his left…4h5h…flush Q high…

Hand #2: This one pretty much had me laughing as I didn’t have much business to be in this hand in the first place, but still: what the heck? 6h2h on the button…three limpers…I call…blinds stay in…flop comes down 7hQcKs…checked around…I check…turn 10h…EP min-bets…one caller…I call…river Ah…EP bets…MP reraises…now I’m pretty sure that at least one of the donks has a higher flush, on the other hand one could have slowplayed broadway on the turn, the other a week ace or even KQ/AK/AQ/…so I call…showdown: me: 6h2h, EP: QhJh, MP: Kh10h…nice shuffle mofo!!!!
Hand #3, 4, 5: flopped set lost to rivered flush, turned top two lost to a rivered straight, turned straight lost to a rivered, ugly, four flush…

Current mood: barf

if you’re playing your hands correctly, how else do you expect to lose. i died in my first 4 sngs/mtt’s last night all on bad beats then, things evened out and i cashed in a few sng’s before i called it a night.

you’re right about the 6-2 hand tho. i know itz tempting to limp in on the button after a bunch of limpers but, you can get yourself in trouble.

Yeah, the “getting sucked out on”-part should just be positive reinforcement that I’m playing my hands right and I know that – it just doesn’t make it less sucky, especially due to my very limited playing time and the fact that it really get’s to me when stuff like this happens within less than 50 hands…

…but hey, I’ll be back with a vengeance as soon as I’ve got some spare time to play again 🙂

…which unfortunately is very rare these days (since I started my internship)… 🙁
