After nearly a full week of great results, then comes Saturday. First tourney I play, about 10 hands in I get delt AA. I raise 5bb, next play pushes all in, then 1 other calls. I know neither can have a better starting hand so i call the rest of my chips off. AA vs. JJ vs KQo. Flop comes 2 8 K(rainbow). Then a 4. And finally a river J. (2 outer hits)
I played the late one also. I doubled up about a half hour in and had slowly been drawn down to 1200. A4 in the sb. It folds to me, so I call. BB checks. Flop comes A 2 9. I push all in for the rest of my 900 or so. The BB insta-calls. (i was thinking "crap, his kciker is gonna be far better") No, he insta-called with an inside str8 draw. He had a 3 5 and was in need of the 4. R U kidding me, calling 900 into a pot of 1500. That's not even 2:1 on your call when you would need 10:1 to chase that crap. Well, of course, the donkey hits his three outer and I'm out.
I'm beginning to question, what is the point of making someone pass a quiz, when the lessons learned are not used by the majority of the players. Seriously...POT ODDS are very meaningful. Quit chasing draws when the pots odds are SO FAR from what you are given. And quit celabrating like it was a good call when your 3 outer hits after calling pot odds of 2:1.
I guess the weekends are just the days that the 2 and 3 outers will hit against me early in the tourney.
