Poker :: Warning: Bloggers are bad omens...
  submitted on January 21, 2008, 10:12 PM


Okay, so I decided to play the $75 Token Frenzy tonight before the Hoy. For those of you who don't already know, this is never a good sign when your starting table pops up:
Seat 1: Shelby 67 (1,500)
Seat 2: bayne_s (1,500)
Seat 3: Mike_Maloney (1,500)
Seat 4: hoyazo (1,500)
Seat 5: plmstone (1,500)
Seat 6: rocks on wrist (1,500)
Seat 7: CandyAddict760 (1,500)
Seat 8: VekToR64 (1,500)
Seat 9: Stinkys99 (1,500)

So, sure enough, second hand in:

Seat 1: Shelby 67 (1,485)
Seat 2: bayne_s (1,470)
Seat 3: Mike_Maloney (1,500)
Seat 4: hoyazo (1,470)
Seat 5: plmstone (1,470)
Seat 6: rocks on wrist (1,553)
Seat 7: CandyAddict760 (1,500)
Seat 8: VekToR64 (1,552)
Seat 9: Stinkys99 (1,500)
bayne_s posts the small blind of 15
Mike_Maloney posts the big blind of 30
The button is in seat #1
*** HOLE CARDS ***

plmstone has reconnected
plmstone has 15 seconds left to act
plmstone calls 30

VekToR64 folds
Stinkys99 has 15 seconds left to act
Stinkys99 raises to 120
Shelby 67 folds
bayne_s folds
Mike_Maloney raises to 360

I thought a little bit about just jamming, because the first hand saw two people push all-in with AQ so I thought I might get a call, but instead I just opted for the re-raise to see how things go

plmstone folds
CandyAddict760 folds
Stinkys99 calls 240
*** FLOP *** [Td 2d 7c]
Mike_Maloney has 15 seconds left to act
Mike_Maloney bets 200

Stinkys99 raises to 1,140, and is all in

I tend to not give the average MTT player much credit in their abilities unless I know better. Therefore I felt like throwing out a super weak bet, like I was re-raising with AK or AQ preflop. Obviously he took the bait.

Mike_Maloney calls 940, and is all in
Stinkys99 shows [8c 8h]
Mike_Maloney shows [Kh Kc]
*** TURN *** [Td 2d 7c] [9d]
*** RIVER *** [Td 2d 7c 9d] [Jc]
Stinkys99 shows a straight, Jack high
Mike_Maloney shows a pair of Kings
Stinkys99 wins the pot (3,075) with a straight, Jack high

gg me. Effing bloggers, it's like the automatic curse of death to get one of them at your starting table.
