Results of my 1st warmup qualifier

By: DashMN @ 22:40 (EST) / 37 / Comment ( 0 )
During current Hold'em session you were dealt 57 hands and saw flop:
- 2 out of 7 times while in big blind (28%)
- 0 out of 7 times while in small blind (0%)
- 1 out of 43 times in other positions (2%)
- a total of 3 out of 57 (5%)
Pots won at showdown - 0 of 1 (0%)
Pots won without showdown - 0

Ouch. Out of 57 hands, I think the best hands I was dealt were pocket 4's and A9o. Saw way more Q3o and K5o than I'd care to see for a while, not to mention those monsters 93o, 72o and 92o. One of my 3 hands played was an unraised big blind. I don't even remember what I had. It was rags and I folded to a bet on the flop. 2nd hand played was pocket 4's.  Circumstances permitted a pre-flop call.  But I missed the set, and folded. My last hand, I was down to 875 chips, minus my big blind posting of 150. Everyone folded but the SB. He raised 3BB.  Folding meant I'd be down to less than 5BB.  I misread the raise as a blind steal and raised all-in with JTo, knowing that I was going to have to shove sooner or later anyway. Oops. He had pocket A's.

Oh well.  Ya win some, ya lose some.  Bad runs happen.  I look forward to my next one, seems like there's some good players in the warmup qualifier.  Assuming I eventually get some cards worth playing, it should be a good challenge.
