Me and three of my friends decided to take a long planned(but never followed through with!) day trip to A.C. Saturday night.. We arrived around 8pm ready for a full night of action at the tables.. This was the first time any of us have played in a poker room other than one of my buddies who had not been up there for several years.. We all signed up for our mandatory Taj cards and hit the tables.. I was looking for a Limit Omaha Hi Lo game but wasn't expected to see any available..Alas, I was correct for the most part.. They had one table of Hi Lo and the waiting was list was for 33 people.. Hi Lo is my better game so I was reluctant to play Hold Em at first.. Anyhow, we put our name on the list for 2-4 limit Hold Em and were ready to go.. To make a long story short I hate Limit Hold'em..Chasers were abound and to make it even worse this insane luckbox sits down to my right and starts dragging pot after pot..I was essentially card-dead for the 2 hours that I sat down and decided to leave the table down about $60 bucks.. No biggie.. We all signed up for the midnight tourney which was an 80+20 tourney.. I was playing my usual tight game because the table was pretty wild.. On the 2nd hand of play at 25-50 levels a dude from early position opened for 3200 in chips.. Hilarious.. Anyhow I busted out on a brutal hand.. The blinds were 600-1200 and I am in the BB..Action folds around to the SB (who has me covered)and he completes.. I look down at Jack King of Clubs and decide to take advantage of my tight play and raise it up 2200 more.. Almost immediately the SB announces All In.. He was a loose player but he hadn't shown down any weird off the wall hands that I had noticed.. Something told me that he was making a move on me though, I don't know what it was but I felt it.. I said out loud to the whole table, "I do not want to go broke with this hand but I really feel like you are making a move here".. So I call.. He flips over Jack 8 off.. I have him totally dominated!.. Until the flop that is.. He hits his 8 and i'm done..Brutal!.. I made the right decision so that was important to me however that didn't dull the pain all that much.. After that fiasco I decided to donk off some more money playing nickel and penny slots.. Finished the trip down about $225 but I still had a great time.. We are hoping to head back up there and try to play in a tournament at the Borgata next time..
