Dont you just hate it when your pocket picture cards don't hold up?
Alright, I played a great Live Tourney game on Sunday finishing wll ITM and I decided to deposit a couple of hundred bucks at Party Poker
because I was very pleased with my game. I sat at a $2BB table with $200. Anyway I was playing well and my stack was rapidly increasing. I was making all the right moves. 3 Hours of play and I had made 1.2k. I decided I needed to move up in tables. I sat at a table where there was only one player with more money than me. I played for about 20 minutes with a $66 profit. Then I get the big boys, Kings on the Button. Before I could even think about how I wanna play the hand the player to my right (the one guy with more money than me on the table) makes a decent sized raise, I raise a decent amount hoping for a shove from my opponent. I get my wish, he puts me all in and I call. He turns over pocket 5's and Im an overwhelming favourite. I await the flop, 10 10 5. He makes a Full House on the flop. Two Queens come on the turn and river - 1,266USD gone. What could I do
I shrug off the disappointment saying to myself I had done nothing wrong. Happy with my game I deposit a further 250USD. I sit at the $2BB table. Very second hand I get pocket Jacks. I just limp in with them in. Im in the hand with the BB and SB. Flop comes J 9 9. Full house baby. BB goes all in, SB folds and im thinking the BB has made trip 9's. Naturally, I call. He shows 97o. All I need to avoid is the 9 nine remaining in the deck. Turn is an 8. He needs the remaining 9 on the river. BAM! I couldn't believe it, I stand there in shock as I see my 250USD go to my opponent. What a horrible suckout.
