A Psycho plays poker and talks about it

Last chance-Lost chance

By: PsychoVas @ 14:38 (EDT) / 566 / Comment ( 3 )

Hi there to all that bother to read.


As I am writing these lines, I have finished swimming with the sharks and although I didn't get eaten alive I didn't get any fish either. Event number 30 and yours truly started rather well, playing tight as a clam. Although you'll probably not believe me, I folded twice pocket Kings pre-flop to an obvious Ax shove. After quite some time, I'm sitting at the button, holding A9 spades. A minimum raise from UTG+1 gets 2 callers, I call, the blinds fold and get to the flop 4-handed. Flop 9h Td 9c. Wow!!! Triple nines, Ace kicker.  UTG+1 bets 3BB, the next player folds, the other doubles, I guess he's got the last Nine, weaker kicker or a Ten and tries to scare us off. Good spot,  I go all-in and the UTG+1 folds, he calls and reveals Kh Tc.

"Oh, yes, that's a good pot", that's what I'm thinking. As for the odds, 9 to 1 in my favour. Look:

Cool, ain't it? Now watch what happened:

http://Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

Odds to that: 1,62%

Major TILT, I even left without saying so much as "bb" or "gl". Too frustrated to think. Sorry to all players at the table for my impoliteness. Anyway finished 159th, game over for WBCOOP regular events.

Last (and lost) chance the final Event. Not much to talk about there too. I reached 89th place at one point then all the way down to a finish of 233rd out of a little over 1.000 players, not too low but out of the bubble for one more time. No more chances to build a bankroll at these events, as I really hoped and wished for.

So that's all for now folks, back to freerolls and OSL bingo nights and back to the psychoplan.

Congratulations to all that ended inside the bubble, royalraise85, RolandGTX, chilipops and EvokeNZ to name a few.

Until the next time, good luck to all at the tables, grab the green felts and tilt the tables to your side.
