I have 7 Busted-a-pro Ts. Just have to get lucky when they have a hand. :P
Once, at Foxwoods, a pro sat down at the FLHE table I was at. I wasn't all that familiar with pros at that point -- he was tall, dark and nice looking. Mighta been Phil Gordon, but not sure. The guy next to me whispered that he's a famous pro. Everyone at the table got kinda stiff. Anxious. Why's he sitting down here??? What, he wants to run over our friendly little lowest-limit table?
Anyway, first hand he plays, he limps in along with a batch of us. Kinda the norm for the table. Then, post flop, he bets from early position (I was not aware of position play then -- it was years ago --and that meant absolutely nothing to me) and everyone folds around to me in late position. Fold, fold, fold. I raise it up. What did I have?, you ask. Not a heck of a lot. 2nd pair and a straight draw, if I remember right. Just wanted to see what he'd do if I reraised, plus I was peeved that everybody was just folding to him. I mean, it was a no foldem table up til then. Just by sitting down, he changed things.
Man, he put on this huge act. Stared me down, felt like forever. Asked if I had a set (Uh, no, I thought. Uh oh. What did I do? Do I need a set to beat his hand?) Asked some more questions. I grinned.
"If I fold, will you show?" he said.
"Well....maybe." (Hot damn, I thought. Is he really gonna fold to my crap?) He kept staring. I tried not to twitch. This went on for minutes. It was awkward. He folded. I showed (with some embarassment.) Quite the show, really.
OK, I won the hand. But, you know, the joke was on me. See, up til then, everyone thought I played tighter than I actually did, since they'd only seen the hands where I had monsters. I don't think I won another hand for an hour. Well, not until I got another monster....
What I learned: Do not show your hand if you don't have to. And don't muck around with pros -- they do head games really well.
