Almost winning is not satisfactory…

It sucks donkey balls to get 3rd place money (or outright bubble), if you’re “supposed” to win. Sigh. I don’t know what it is, but the “crucial hands” just don’t fall my way these days…pretty frustrating and annoying, but what can you do – well, first of all you can let the steam out, hello, what do you think I’m doing here, lol.

The play is mostly a blurr, but I know that I pushed in as the underdog the total number of 3 times tonight (two of which were pretty automatic as I was short). The other times I usually had my opponents down to one overcard, two outs or some similar ungroovy situation – for them. Didn’t help me much. Yes, the best hand held up every now and then…but in the end, when it mattered I got annihilated I mean when it’s a flip, let’s say JJ vs AK…my opponent doesn’t flop an ace…he flops the boat leaving me drawing dead to running jacks. When I have Jacks against Q9…sure enough three outs is enough…etc etc…really crushered…big time. Oh well, enough ranting…I’ll book the small loss and give myself a pat on the back for not playing any longer letting the steam out where it belongs…here on the blog and not at the tables spewing chips…

Enjoy the (not so) random pic dump and gl at the tables…
