Well, I took off into the weekend early today, chilled out a while and then I decided to play some ten-handed double or nothing SnGs. Pretty good deal there, if you can dodge some coolers and just ride it out. That’s not quite how it went down today though. I got into some bad spots, which I could have prevented, but hey, overall I’m satisfied with my play. Memorable hand of the day: I cold call a minraise preflop with JJ on the button, no need to commit myself here. Flop comes down Th Jh Qh…so I flopped middle-set…I’m weary of AK though and any heart on the turn or river could be it if I’m not beat already (any AK, K9, QQ, two hearts or one big heart) – not to sound too “pro” here, but the first thought that crossed my mind was “Bingo…I guess he has it, wouldn’t it be sick if he really had the Ah Kh”. Preflop-raiser checks – suspicious, but hey, I fire at it nontheless 350 into a 320 pot. He calls. Even more suspicious. Turn comes the As. Doesn’t change much imo, if he had nothing so far, good, unless he’s got a king here. He checks, I check behind hoping that the board pairs. No such luck as the 6h hits the river. He goes all-in for 515. Everything inside me tells me that I’m beat, but I have to see it. I call and he flips: Ah Kh…a royal flush. Well played…*lol*…what are the odds of flopping a royal flush: 1 to 649.740 seems to be the number…what are the odds of me flopping a set, my opponent flopping a royal flush: do I really even want to know 😉

Anyway…I’m outta here…enjoy the pic dump, including some lucky hands on my part….and gl at the tables…
