Trying to come to gribs with skill game loss...

By: laclaw @ 13:58 (EST) / 6 / Comment ( 0 )
This morning in a sunny yet cold midwest day I decided to play a friendly game of poker.  It was the second skill game of the day.  The tourney pool of players was pretty big for a mid day game.  So the first ten hands were bunk, you know low cards that are not within four digets.  Finally I received AK at the later end of mid position.  I bet three times the big blind cause of the fact that the table was limping in on bets.  Everyone folded in front of me except for the small blind, he decided to go all-in.  Everyone else folded which left me with the news!  I took a glimpse at the players avatar and it had three stars (gold level), did this mean that he was good?  Did this mean that he had a high pair?  I only had ten hands of info on his play style because of the fact that I use holdem manager.  With all the time used up before it would sit me out I went all-in also.   I had two times more chips than him.  The flop came out.....4 6 it was a rainbow config.  I thought good I have a pair of kings but he had two pair!  Fours and Sixes....WTF!  Who goes all-in with a four six non suit!  Make a long story short I lost with a single pair............

Maybe I should consult the stars first before I fold a low non pair...
