Just one of those days!
So I’m in my normal Saturday $210 deep stack event at my local casino, starting stacks are $35K.
The blinds are $500 and $1K no ante and have about $65K and this is the 5th 30 minute level.
from UTG +2 and raise to $2300. I get 7 callers; including the player immediately to my left! He did take a bad beat – but one that was deserved (this guy is a total A-hole, I’ve played him before) as was tilting as bad as I have ever seen anyone tilt – that’ll be important in a minute.
The pot is huge for this level and is about $17K.
The flop comes
The SB called pre-flop and now moves all-in for ~30K.
Now I don’t see how I can fold here, I think he’s drawing (he’s an amateur and we all know this is a standard move) but then again, he could have Kings up too. Nonetheless I feel like I have no choice and move all in over the top.
The dealer then calls as well for what turned out to be ~$40K.
The SB shows
- the dealer shows
Right –OK so that was fun! Anyway, there was nothing I could do there; pretty standard right?
So then a few hands later I’m in the BB and my tilting friend to the left limps from UTG. One other player makes a min raise to $2K and gets 6 callers including me as I add $1K to my blind with
UTG then moves all-in in mega-tilt fashion for more than I had, ~$30K (I only had about $24K after the last disaster) and everyone folds to me in the BB.
I’m not sure if I’ve done a good enough job of explaining how “on-tilt” this guy was, but an all-in call with King high wasn’t even borderline, so I call.
And I’m going home!
So in a matter of two hands, I went from a double+ starting stack to zero. But I don’t regret any of this, I don’t think I would change any of it and it was just one of those days; but what do you think?
