Last week we were having some internet connection issues while I was playing. I raised on this current hand on the button only to see this flop. A flush draw with a pair of suited aces. That's gotta be a winner right? Apparently the internet failed a couple hands before and A3 was the hand I had the previous hand. When I looked at the hand history, I apparently raised with J4o.
This weekend I traveled North to visit family and friends at Dad's 60th birthday party. Mom and Dad had hired a band and turned their shop into party central. It was a lot of fun. I had a 2 day hangover.
Monday night we had our Muck Em game. I was playing tight again, trying to get points. At the final table I was sitting with a decent chip stack. I could fold to the bubble easily. I was in the big blind and a decent stack from the other side of the table raised. I look down at pocket K's. I push and get a reserved call. I have him slightly covered. He turns over AQ. First card out is an ace. Crapsickles. With one blind left I made it 3 more orbits and got a little life back. Unfortunately nobody else was going out.
On the last hand I was sitting in late position and nobody had bet. I go all in for 3 1/2 bb's with K9o. The big blind insta called. She had pocket 7's. I hit a 9 out of the gate, but the turn brought a 7. No points for me. One player slightly under me and one person over me in points had good finishes. I'm still sitting in 3rd in points for the year. I will need points to hold on now.
Last night I played quite a few double or nothings and a couple of tournaments. No luck. Every time somebody pushed with an ace they caught it. Every time I needed one it never came. No fair.
