re: Poker & Don't you hate it when...
Sweet! Took less than 10 hands and I won $4 from the same guy. $4 is pretty good at the lowest stakes hehe.
It helps that I tried to bluff the hand before and folded to a big river bet from another villain. Everyone (3 handed, I was on BB) had limped and checked the flop. So when a second 3 came on the turn, from BB I tried to represent a 3. 9h comes on the river and I had to toss since I had air.
The very next hand, the cards were almost the same.I had K3 on SB. Limped 3 way pot again. A 3 on the flop then another on the turn. I bet the exact amount on the turn. Two calls. The 9h hits on the river again. I lead out with half the pot. One fold, but BTN comes over the top and shoves.
I thought maybe he had 99... but since he limped from button I called. He only had one 9 and called the turn bet with air.
He reloads for a $1 and shoves preflop the next hand. With JJ on button I called. He only had 10 5. Got a scare when a 10 hit on the flop but A and K on turn and river means I win. Thinking back I probably should have pushed all in to squeeze the others out. Luckily it didn't cost me.
