God I hate poker. Let me repeat that, I hate poker. Honestly.


WARNING – You’re entering sick, borderline uber-rant territory, beware! WARNING


Not really, but it’s hard not to after a day like mine. Only upside of it all is that I wasn’t in a live game or I might as well punched a player or two, or three right smack in the face for their stupidity and their audacity to talk smack to me after laying some of the sickest beats on me. Hell, bad enough that they play like crap, which I absolutely endorse, after all that’s where the money comes from, but then sucking out on me hand after hand after hand and then talking smack to me? Are you shitting me? God damn little dastards! ;)Played a total of 8 SnGs today…not all that much considering that I multi-tabled, but hey, I couldn’t take anymore. I mean, it’s all in good fun if you lose one or two (more or less sick) hands that cripple you or send you packing, but the amount of those hands was way above my tolerance today. Alrighty, it’s normal to lose a coin-flip or even the eventual dominated hand here and there, but no, there was nothing in the region of “here and there”, it was more like everywhere.

Coinflips won (4x Pair vs two overs, 2x two overs vs pair): 0

Dominated hands won (AQ vs AJ, AK vs A7, A10 vs A5, etc): 0…just have a look at the typical hand…

typical hand

Cold deck mountain (QQ vs KK, A7 vs AK), shorthanded: 2, won: 0

Overpair vs two unders (QQ vs J9, QQ vs 108): 2, won: 0

16+ outs twice (OESD+Flush-draw, OESD+Flush-draw+trip-draw): 2, won 0

…and then the hand that send me over the edge – I mean come on, are you kidding me, how can you call a raise-war with that hand…and btw…where is my four-flush there? God damn it!

Poker oh poker, it’s all skill…start with the worst hand and go uphill…so considering all the circumstances, this was by far the worst run of bad luck I’ve EVER seen in a day…I mean there’s no way in hell I could have made money today, yes, I scored a 90-95% in the correct decision department, on the other hand I scored a 100+100% in the junk kick department…god am I tilted now…stats for the day: SnGs played 8, ITM 1 (1x 2nd), other finishes: 8, 8, 5, 8, 6, 8, 7…thanks very much for ruining my day donkeys…
