A quick post about the Pokerchipsquad private game at PKR last night. I was playing great all the way through the tourny and before we knew it we were down to four players. I was chip leader by about 3000 from KBvital with CrazyYorkie and Blagger. We played a good few hands with chips swapping everywhere. Blagz managed a massive suckout after going over the top of my raise with A3 suited. I had AJ suited. He caught a 3 on the river to take it down. I didn’t bother me too much as it didn’t dent my stack too much.
Further into the game I caught pocket 9’s on the button. Cue a raise from me. I was re-raised by KBvital, so I flat called. The flop came out low cards so I pushed all-in (I had put him on AK). He turns over pocket Aces and catches another Ace on the turn. So from chipleader I go to shortstack.
The very next hand I’m involved in (2 hands from the 99 v AA) and me on the BB I pick up KQ – an all-in hand every time when you’re shortstacked. KBvital calls and turns over pocket Aces again!!! Unbelievable! Needless to say the Aces held up and I went out as bubbleboy. Chipleader to bubbleboy in two hands against the same player holding AA each hand – gutted!
This game can be so cruel at times and last night was a bit of a ‘nut-crusher’. I Left PKR stunned.
In retrospect, If I had thought about it a bit longer I could have maybe got away from the first hand, but you just don’t expect it twice in a row with the same player. I’m not knocking KBvital by the way…. he’s got to play the hands he gets.
I just wish the poker gods would give me a break though. It seems to be the same in every game I play lately – play brilliantly for the most part only to have the carpet swept from under my feet in the latter stages.
Hey-ho…. I just have to put it out of my mind. I can’t dwell on it (although I’m sure I’ll be bitchin about it tonight in the chatroom 🙂 ) It’s another day, and another lesson learned, so upwards and onwards to tonights private game at Absolute. I will make the payout positions tonight, and its not just a feeling. Its a determination that has been lacking lately. But its back now folks, so watch out…. I’m comin to get ya!
