I was playing in the $160 double shootout that awards one seat to the 05' wsop. I had about 1270 in chips and the blinds were at 25/50. I was on the button with an Ace 6 of diamonds. I raised to 200 making it 150 more for the BB to call. The big blind had 900 left when I raised. He thought for a moment, some guy named Normiesdad or something like that, and then he pushed all in. I thought about it for about 40 seconds letting my timer run down and then I knew I had the best hand. He was on the semi short stack and I knew that any Paint whatever suited was looking good to him. And I called. He turned up a King of clubs and a Queen of spades. He types " GREAT CALL". And the flop comes 2c 3c 9s. Looking good but the turn brings a 6 of clubs. Gives him a shit load of outs. The river.........Ace.........of..........CLUBS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was truly disgusted. Runner Runner to totally CRIPPLE ME. About 5 hands later I had about 700 in chips and pushed all in on the button with Ace 5 offsuit. I got called by a Jack 10 hearts. Flop comes K Q 5. Turn is an 8. He still has a million outs and hits the openender with the Ace on the river to knock me out. Since I wasted some of my bankroll on the $160 buy in, I decided to play a 5.50 turbo to get entry into another shootout. And I got my ass whooped by a King 10 offsuit with my Ace King of spades. K 10 2 on the flop. Disgusted again. What a horrible poker night. If anyone reads this post/thread or whatever it is called please tell me all of your stories about how you completely failed or how you were successful in MAJOR satellites.
