At one of our recent 5-Cash-Games at a friendīs house, there was this unbelievable streak of luck that one guy had. He was literally holding AJ, KJ or JJ for like 10 out of 15 hands in a row!
Mostly he just called it all the way through, for example pocket Jīs when the flop came AK5 rainbow, turn came whatever....river J and he won against AK.
He was really winning every pot he played at with Jack-pair or three Jacks.
After a while someone even said preflop :"If theres a Jack on the flop, Iīll fold anyways. Donīt wanna lose against Jackboy again!"
Flop showed 2,5,J. of course he didnīt fold, raised into Jackboy, who just called as usual, Turn showed a Q. Raise again, Jackboy calls. River shows 3.
The other guy showed 2-5, and lost against Jackboy who held J3.
It was really like this guy was David Copperfield or something.
After a few of these hands, someone (I think it was me...) said:
"Hey man, you got them Jacks up your sleeve or what?^^" (but in a funny way, not really accusing)
"Are you kidding? I think I just developed a really good strategy!" in a totally confident and serious voice.
No need to tell you that everybody just fell off their chairs laughing...I mean what kind of strategy is this? Having Jacks all the time is not a strategy...
But I like our games because of the funny atmosphere, and the chit-chat in between and of course the stories I just told you, weīre always having fun! I wouldnīt trade it for anything!
(although on that day, I blew my whole stack with a full house because of a better full house... )
