Poker :: Ow, my pride
  submitted on September 29, 2007, 9:13 PM


Couple of rough hands, don't think I played them particularly bad, just not a great outcome for me.

FullTiltPoker Game #3709930986: Table Illusion - $0.50/$1 - No Limit Hold'em - 20:44:09 ET - 2007/09/29

(Good flop for me, so I bet out to get some money in there)
0wins calls $6
*** TURN *** [7s 7c Qs] [As]
0wins checks
Mike_Maloney checks
(I like to check on the turn sometimes when I hit my flush to make my flop bet look like a c-bet and induce a bet on the river from my opponent)
*** RIVER *** [7s 7c Qs As] [8s]
0wins bets $12
(Not thrilled at all by the fourth flush card followed by the lead out bet, but there's only one card that can beat me from a flush perspective, and if that's what he has, so be it)
Mike_Maloney has 15 seconds left to act
Mike_Maloney raises to $25
0wins has 15 seconds left to act
0wins raises to $55
Mike_Maloney: You have the king?
Mike_Maloney has 15 seconds left to act

(This hand has gone from great to poor very quickly, so I make a semi-crying call)
*** SHOW DOWN ***
0wins shows [Qd Qc] a full house, Queens full of Sevens
(Gross, I think I'd rather he had the Ks)
Mike_Maloney mucks
0wins wins the pot ($127) with a full house, Queens full of Sevens
Mike_Maloney: nh

*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to Mike_Maloney [Kd Jd]
j3i629hd1 folds
0wins folds
Taddy-Porter calls $1
nebular folds
JHarr1219 folds
rogerhobbs folds
rezams folds
Mike_Maloney raises to $5
(Yeah, risky play in the SB, but this guy has been limping a lot preflop, so I wanted to play back at him, maybe just take it down preflop)
trick dady has 15 seconds left to act
trick dady calls $4
Taddy-Porter calls $4
(Or not)
*** FLOP *** [3d Jc Td]
(Yahtzee!)
Mike_Maloney has 15 seconds left to act
Mike_Maloney bets $7
trick dady raises to $36
(So what does this mean? It's highly unlikely he has JJ, so he could have TT, 33, an overpair, or a flush draw with an ace. If I have a K-high flush draw, I'm pretty much always willing to take the off chance that I'm getting off-flushed. If he has a set, I have outs to a flush, and I had decided on the flop I was taking this to the felt.)
Taddy-Porter folds
Mike_Maloney has 15 seconds left to act
Mike_Maloney raises to $72
trick dady raises to $108
Mike_Maloney calls $28, and is all in
trick dady shows [As Ad]
(See, when I get AA in the big blind it just gets folded around to me)
Mike_Maloney shows [Kd Jd]
Uncalled bet of $8 returned to trick dady
*** TURN *** [3d Jc Td] [9d]
(Whee!)
*** RIVER *** [3d Jc Td 9d] [2d]
(Fawk!)

Seat 2: rogerhobbs didn't bet (folded)
Seat 3: rezams (button) didn't bet (folded)
Seat 4: Mike_Maloney (small blind) showed [Kd Jd] and lost with a flush, King high
Seat 5: trick dady (big blind) showed [As Ad] and won ($212) with a flush, Ace high
Seat 6: j3i629hd1 didn't bet (folded)
Seat 7: 0wins didn't bet (folded)
Seat 8: Taddy-Porter folded on the Flop
Seat 9: nebular didn't bet (folded)


I decided after that I should probably just stop. 30 hands into a session and I get stuck with two hands like that, it's just better to get up and avoid any kind of tilty play. Frustrating for me, I haven't been stacked like that in a month, but you can't run hot all the time.
