You ever have one of those moments where you're sure you're being super sneaky, and then 30 seconds later it's all completely blown up in your face? I missed the first 20 minutes of the Mookie, and my 7th hand, I wake up to JJ on the button. I think I had been involved in three hands prior to this, so I'm looking a little wild so far. It's folded around to me, I put in a raise, assuming it looks like a steal, and the BB re-raises to 550 (I raised to 175, blinds were 25/50). I "take my time", then re-raise to 1,800, because I figure I'm good here, and at worst a coin flip. BB just calls, which is odd, since he only has 1,100 left, and I only have 800, so we're both committed. But anyways, flop comes K-9-8, he pushes, and I of course already know where this is headed. I call, and he flips over AK, and IGH in 81st. Way to go on the sneaky faux-steal attempt, genius.
Guess I should have just gone back to auto-folding, could have lasted longer than 7 hands.
