Poker :: Death to the Mookie
  submitted on November 29, 2007, 12:00 AM


Man, what a brutal tournament tonight. Played 100 hands, lasted an hour and a half, and in that time, I saw the flop 9 times, and only went to showdown twice, once just checking down in the blinds.

My cards were absolutely awful. I had AKo once, taken down preflop. I had AQo once, taken down on the flop after c-betting in position. All other aces were ace-rag. I had KQo twice, lost both times. Other than that, I had 99, 88, 44, and 33. And that's about it, aside from a few middle suited connectors. Just complete crap.

Here's the best part, though. Because your starting cards don't matter for shit, because if you hit your hands, then you're gold. I won 9 hands, and the best hand I had out of those 9 hands? Second pair. I was in the blinds, and hit second pair holding 9-3 sooted. I also won a hand with third pair when I was holding 4-4 and bet people out of the hand on a 8-3-K-2 board. That's it. Every other hand was either won preflop or with complete crap.

The whole reason I know all this is because I was bored out of my mind folding for 90 minutes, so I was looking up fun stats in Poker Tracker. I ended up busting when I raised preflop with 88, was re-raised all-in by the button, and called, even though I was fairly sure I was up against a higher pair. So I ran into the QQ of hellory, and that was that. I'm well aware that I should have folded, but I can't say I cared too much at that point.

So hellory wins my Mookie bounty this time around. Congrats.
