re: Poker & everyone recieves, but noone gives?
I just sucked out. I'm sure it hurt like hell for the suckee but I liked it. Went a little something like this:
Small pair on the button, person in first position min-raises but I saw them betting really big in that position b4 that. It was fishy, didn't smell right. Downright stank.
So I went ahead and made my standard button raise. They called, at any rate they played wrong, cuz I somehow got really sucked into the hand(and maybe that's why they call it sucking out cuz when u do it in a valid way you're sucked into the hand and can't get out). They had broadway cards pre-flop and somehow on the turn they went all-in but by then it only cost me 2 cents to call so I did and bam! 5 hit on the river to give me trip 5's.
Of course, had they played an A game from the get without hand based bets and raises, I wouldn't have been as likely to make my raise pre-flop now would I?
