This was literally the first hand I played in this one and my raise is just completely dissed. Then he figures his Q is the nuts I guess. Did I get lucky on the river? Yes. Did the river correct a hand in which he had played it wrong on every point until it was played out and the chips were in the middle? Also yes. At least I think so.............

Second hand (note these are all from the same $1.11 50/50 SNG)

As you can see we're a little deeper here.At this point I was showing by far the tightest profile on the table still. I had showndown once since my earlier win with AA and that was with AKs (chopped the pot with another AKs) and STILL my raises are being laughed at. Adam had been by far the loosest player on the table and had shown a propensity to play ANYTHING suited (as he indeed does here............).

I wanted to get him off a possible spade flush,or straight draw. Also he had shown as the type that would call here with AJ or A10 in a heartbeat (2 hands that given his call pre-flop were very much in the range I had him on). To say I was incredulous when he turned over the J2 would be an understatement. I really lucked up on the river here,no doubt. But I can also say he got his just desserts for calling the tightest player on the tables raise pre-flop with J2s.


Then this is the hand that just ended this one.

The guy in the BB had'nt raised pre-flop once the entire game,yet had seen 65% of the flops (get shown to be a habitual limper this is the kind of stuff that's going to happen to you). Normally I wouldn't limp in this spot,but given his proven weakness and the fact that I had a boatload of chips and a hand that if it flops big I can end this thing with a last big win I didn't even hesitate.And even though it's just a gutshot post flop there was no chance in Hell I was going anywhere for another 80 chips. and to be perfectly honest I just knew,not felt,KNEW (you all know what I'm talking about here...) that an 8 was about to peel off. Like BarryG said once on something I was watching him play in after he played and sucked a 3 outer--"Math is stupid". Meaning sometimes you just have to chuck everything else and go with your gut.Admittedly in this case it was easy to do so.

Ended up winning $3.45 in this one,so a tidy profit of $2.34. My best showing in a $1.11 50/50 yet.

So I guess my point here is that sometimes (as we all know) you can do everything right and the other guy screw it up the whole way through just to watch them hit a miracle,but every now and then Ol Man River comes along dispensing justice.

Or maybe it's just that I had recently charged up the mojo on my Voodoo Monkey Paw.

All I know is that this is the first time in 3 weeks that I'm logging off my plays for the day/night feeling good. And that counts for something.

Nice to see the Poker Gods smiling on you, Moxie.

Having no such luck myself at the moment. Late last night was down to the last 45 in a German freeroll tourney and lying second. The chip leader had about one and half times my stack and he was raising or going all in with ATC. He raised under the gun, everybody upto me on the button folded, I three bet on the button, blinds folded and then he reraised me all in. I contemplated folding, because I had made a point of avoiding this guy but I knew I was way ahead and that if my aces held I was virtually at the final table.

I called, he had Q3 offsuited!!! Flop comes QQQ. No help from the turn or river. Gutted and out in 43rd place. That's poker and in the long run my time will come.
