Poker :: Kicked in the Junk
  submitted on January 2, 2008, 10:27 PM

So, to preface this hand, I gave mason1014 very little credit here for actually having a hand. He and I had been going back and forth at each other all night. So I didn't think much of his initial raise, and to be honest, I still didn't think much of his re-re-raise either (And with good reason, as you can see). The thing that did worry me is after I pushed it up to $5 and kashman straight jams after calling my previous re-raise. At that point, though, I've got $50 to call into a $250 pot, so I probably can't really fold there.

Of course the person that actually wins the main pot was a 9% favorite preflop, and I was a measly 67% favorite.

Then, literally two minutes later in the Mookie, I lose all my stack on these two hands:

Seat 1: MiamiDon (3,000)
Seat 2: DonkeyPuncher74 (3,000)
Seat 3: Joshuacarlsen (3,000)

Literally the first hand of the game. I call a small raise with suited connectors, and hit the flop hard. I don't get too invested, probably for the best considering he turned a full house. So I'm already tilting a bit from the KK hand, along with immediately losing a third of my stack on the first hand in the Mookie, so I make an aggro preflop jam with AK, which looks to be a good play until I get two-outted:

Seat 1: MiamiDon (2,985)
Seat 2: DonkeyPuncher74 (2,895)
Seat 3: Joshuacarlsen (2,955)
Seat 4: Mike_Maloney (2,025)

Gotta love the instacall with the JackAce. If I didn't know any better I'd think maybe I accidentally signed into Hoy's account.

I'm just frustrated because I've been getting completely killed at the cash games lately. I think I've dropped something like six buy-ins in the last month, and only a couple are due to bad beats, most I can pretty much blame on me and stupid play. It's tough, and not something I want to see happen after I felt like I was making some real progress at 100NL. I had taken a bit of a break with the wedding and the BBTwo going on, and hadn't played much over a couple months, and it doesn't look like the break was too helpful. I need to work on getting my A game back. Mostly just stop making bad calls and trust your read. If your read tells you that your beat, go with that, most likely you will be correct.
