Lost two hands, two straights

By: TarekGG @ 15:34 (EDT) / 221 / Comment ( 2 )
Hello just raised with JTs EP to get the blinds and antes. I get called by the most lucky person ever to live on this planet and who wont ever get any good results in what ever tourneys he is playing. Thank God for that, I mean let's all give that dude a chance and make it consequence my tournament life.

I had a really rough start at this one was behind in chips. Had raised and stole the blinds and got back to almost what I started with. Then I get KJo two times in a row, both times I limp so I wont get overshoved because I had already raised alot. Both times I played this hand people reraised me. First time I didn't call, next time I did and ran into queens. That was how the whole thing started off, a great start - good cards, nope, somebody has the better of it. Anyway I get tens and I shove what appears to be a coinflip which I win. And suddenly I'm in really good shape until that hand I started the whole WHINE POST ABOUT.

That dude was holding AJs vs. my JTs and the flop was KJT. I raise he calls thinking he has the best, and with his broadway draw he gets there. I have to call with my two pair and the four cards to the broadway because I was already potcomitted. With just about 10% I go to the terrifying river which crushes all my hope and dreams about ever doing great when you are under a lot of bad luck.

A few hands later, and I mean a very very very few hands later, I get dealt A3s on the button. I min raise, SB and BB call. The flop gives me a pair, flush draw and gutshot straight draw. I put the BB on a straight/flush draw since he is low on chips and appeared to be an idiot imo. I cbet get one caller, and who is that? It's mr. draw. With the limited time left and since I was multitabling I somehow managed to only raise 1BB letting him draw for free, I bet all my money on that he would've called if I even shoved, cus he had a pair. Anyway that's how I lost. What I am going to do now? I don't know, it's the worst weather I've seen the last week, think I'll have to take a jog since there 6hours to the next tourney. Thanks alot.


I hate to say this, but despite everything that has happened the last couple of days I'd rather call myself unlucky than lucky. Of course I could've folded the JT, or not even raised pre with it. But what the hell :) )))))D)D)D)D)D) WOHO
