OK, maybe not - but I think I might be close to having earned that title. This got my attention enough that I had to go back and count them - so just for fun (because it sure entertained me) I’ll share:
9 seat S&G tournament. Got knocked out in the 59th hand when my opponent went runner-runner to fill his flush and beat my two pair. I bet fairly big after the flop - he called - good on him (or her). Feel sad for me. But I digress…
How many times have you gone a full tourney with no pocket pairs? I know I have. Anyway, I noticed a pocket pair trend, so I went back and counted.
59 hands. 9 pocket pairs dealt to me!! 55; 77; 22; 22; 77; 66; 66; 77; 55
Kind of crappy pocket pairs (though two did hit sets for me), but wow!!
So… does Replay mail me my “Pocket Pair King” crown? Or is it a bracelet, maybe? A plaque? Heck, I’ll settle for coupon to Subway for half off a 6 inch sub.
And I promise to be a benevolent king.
