worst reads ( ie most humiliating calls )
I was fresh off 3 straight SnG wins in a row & was feeling super confident so I entered a $5 no rebuy NL 1000 person tourny. The 1st 30 or so hands were all-in fests with hands such as A,7 8,8 k,J etc etc. I'm BB & havent even seen a flop yet ( I have 1450 or so chips ) the SB is chip leader & has 10,000+ chips & has been bullying the table almost every hand. By some miracle nobody raises pre flop & I get a free look at the flop ( I'm delt A,6 ) the flop comes A,K,4. Everyone checks around to me ( omg my Ace is good, I'm thinking ) so I bet 1/2 the pot & everyone drops till it gets to the SB ( Mr. Big Stack ) & he raises me 700 ( half my stack ). I seriously would of been $1000.00 real dollars on him having K, junk or less. I was so confident I had him beat I almost said "not this time buddy" Thank god I didnt cause I re-raised him all-in, he calls immediately & flips over A,K. I left the table with my tail between my legs, what a bad read & humiliating experience. Poker has a funny way of humbling you when you start to get ****y.
anyways I'm bored at work & thought I would share my humiliating with you all.
