After winning last week, I had a target on my back for the $20.00 bounty this week. It was apparent at the start of play that I was going to have to have the best hand from start to finish every time.
I had pocket aces fairly early and had 2 callers all the way to rivertown. I had 1 beat. The other caught their flush on the river. Painful.
This week was not at all like last week. I could not buy a hand. Actually I got creative one time when I was about out of chips and called an all in from late position with 7 2 when nobody else called. There were a lot of chips in the pot. He had JQ. I caught a 7 on the river to win. It was pretty exciting. It was apparent that I showed up last night to eat, drink and have fun. With the cards I got I do not think things would have turned out any different if I had played seriously.
I did have fun. The host always makes a meal for us. This week it was a baked potato bar, with a snack tray and cakes. It's a rough way to spend my Monday evenings.
My last hand of the night was 4 2 s. I went all in and had 2 callers. KQrag out the gate. Big stack bets, other player goes all in. Uh Oh! Big stack folds. Other player has a Q. A 2 hit on the turn. No love on the river. I was third out of the game. I had 1 BB left when I went all in. I had just gotten out of the blinds with 8 3 and 9 2 with raisers and callers ahead of me. I had 4 more hands to make a move. When I looked down at the power hand 4 2 I knew it was time to put my chips in the middle.
Not this time.
