re: Poker & What is Your ALL TIME best Poker Plays?
Well.... I would have to say this is my worst poker play actually, a bit off topic but worth sharing. I remember before I ever got into poker, I was at work with my boss and I had always liked poker at it, was decent at it whenever i played. He said something about playing, and he offered his 1k paycheck to my $300 paycheck, play for paychecks. I declined obviously, but it made me curious what in the heck made him think he was so good he was willing to bet 3x the money. So I started learning from him, he had cashed 19k for 8th place in a $1k buyin tourney at the local casino. Well one night he says "Im going to the boat, leaving out early... Do u want to go with me?" I said sure, so we go to the casino and I have absolutely NO CLUE what im doing. To this day, I cant believe I won. I sit down and am calling hands like a donk, I look down at j6 of hearts. I know I was first to act, but other than that no idea where the position was. 1/2 NL Live casino game. Guy raises to I think it was $10, I call with J6h.... Flop Ah Jd Jc.... So I think hell yeah im good here right? I bet $25 and he raises to 50, I call..... turn is a heart. So im thinking ok I have 3 jacks and a flush draw, so I bet 75, and I had about another 100 behind.... he puts me all in, I snap call.... He shows AA..... I about shit, until the river Jack of spades hits.... Unfortunately I didnt hit the bad beat because both hole cards didnt play, but it was damn close. I raked in my $600+ pot and went on home....
To this day my favorite hand is J6 suited, I will occasionally get tricky with it in late position, and I seem to do well with it. I dont know how many times ive hit Jacks and 6's and my opponent just dumps off his stack with AJ to me
