Still in nirvana

I don’t know if my view is so blurred or if it’s really just a weird spell of cards I’m encountering, but it sure still feels weird to play as it’s just like the next cooler and/or bs is just the next deal away. Managed to run KK into the monster JJ…sure enough the two outer hits. Returned the favour by cracking aces with queens. The difference. He min-raise preflop OOP and played the trapping game after the flop came Q high, good for me as I bet him into oblivion until he finally pushed into the nuts on the river.

Apart from that some other really weird hands and lots of coolers (most of whom I just saw, and I’ll spare you the screenshots as they’re the usual 4:1 preflop = 0% once the board is up). Take this one hand three-handed. I’m in the BB…button raise to 3x. SB calls…I call with K8. Flop comes down QJT. Not the worst flop three-handed. SB checks, I check. Button fires a big bet. SB raises all-in. What to do…fold. Button calls. Both show JT for bottom two pair. Turn 9. I curse and before I even get into “bs mode” the case Jack hits the river giving them both a boat. Nice hands. Good that I folded. *lol*. So sick. A few hands later the next cooler style. I’m in the BB again and look down at A4. Button pushes. SB calls. What to do what to do. I fold. Button shows AQ. SB shows AK. Board xx4x4. So sick. Still took down the headsup match, but still…makes you wonder…

All in all I managed to pull one W out of four six-handed SnGs and one W out of one NL HU match. So slightly up for the night, but still not back in the groove…not one bit to be exact. Oh well…

same crap happens to me all the time. some guy raises and gets two callers, i fold 4-8o from the blinds and woulda flopped a monster. you can make a case for pot odds. but, you’re not gonna make money in the long run making those kinda calls. shake it off and move on.

Yeah, I hear you…I love to get in with those hands cheap (and in position)…and once you hit gin…

Speaking of 48o…incidently I flopped flopped two pair and turned a boat with it headsup last night (in the 6handed SnG I won)…that was a nice pot…
