Superstitious? Not me…I guess that’s partly to attribute that my father was born on a friday the 13th. But back to poker content. After spending all day setting up the stuff for tomorrow’s football+drinking tournament (you play 2 against 2 and everybody is drinking heavily) I decided to play a little poker.

The first six-handed SnG was a blast, wait, not really. Within the first orbit I lose two thirds of my stack with JJ against the mighty Q9o…I pop it to 6BB in the BB…LP decides that this is a good opportunity to call…flop comes 79T…not bad…I bet the pot…he calls…turn is a beautiful 9….I lead out again….he calls. A blank hits the river and I decide to a little defensive bet. He calls…flips over his monster Q9o and drags the pot….nice play sir, especially the call preflop and on the flop…and even nice the flat-calls on the turn and especially the river…no reraise? *lol* you’ll make it far in poker (incidently his sharkscope numbers are exactly as expected, down 2.5k in 12$ SnGs…wheeee). I fold and fold and fold and once the blinds hit 25/50 I’m stuck with 8BB, it’s folded around to me and I find A5o on the button, I push in…BB decides that calling +7BB with QT is groovy…okay…they were s00ted…so who am I to blame him….*lol*….board….QJxTx….beautiful. So I exit in sixth.

The next one wasn’t much better…I don’t even remember the exact hand, but it involved someone with two live cards hitting his two pair on the river…wheee….down to 950. Oh well…I finally push with 66 on the button once I’m down to 12BB…BB calls with AKs…board AQJxx….oh well…at least there was one interesting hand in between: Can someone tell me what the odds are of FLOPPING A ROYAL FLUSH?

Pretty much the most beautiful hand I’ve witnessed in a long time. After that two six place finishes I decided to play one headsup match and quit no matter the outcome. I won, so only slightly down for the night.

On another note: I won’t be defending my title in Kat’s rebuy madness tonight. I would love to, but I have to get up at 9am to get ready for the footie+drinking tourney and with the start time of 3am it’s no g00t for me tonight…good luck and have fun everyone…I’ll be back in the hunt for the rebuy madness title next week…
