re: Poker & When the cards don't come
Last night my first hand at the Paradise WSOP
freeroll was 2/9 and I was on the big blind. So I checked and went for it. Really bad hand and I thought I'd be folding real soon.
Flop shows a 2/9/6 - now I have two pair so I bet big to win the pot, but of course got called by 2 people. Then another 9 comes out so now I have a full house. So I bet real big - one folded and one called (couldn't believe it) last card was a 3 so I bet again. And the guy still called me. I got 2380 chips altogether and was pretty satisfied with my little 2/9.
Normally, I would never play that hand but since it was in the blind I did. Of course, if someone had raised the betting big before me, I would have folded. Interesting.
