https://www.replaypoker.com/hand/replay/512365833A9o in SB. Limp. I feel congratulations are in order, I managed to get to see a flop. 2AQ, I have top pair, and 3 hearts on the board. 2nd to act shoves, I can tell they have either AK or AQ, and I’m just that beyond caring at this point, so I call. They flip up AK, I’m %$#!&ed. I knew it. This whole game, most of the time now one opens, everyone limps, but the 2-3 hands that I get semi-playable cards dealt to me, someone’s shoving preflop. Probably doing me a favor keeping me from losing more chips faster. But then I manage to get in to see a flop, I even hit it, and again someone’s hyperbetting the pot, so I’m sick of it, I decide to stand up and call, and of course it’s the wrong move. I even knew it was the wrong move. If I could have raised the shove so I could have given him all my chips right then and there, I would have done it.
Stack is 1255. 21/21/30. Basement desperation garbage time, %$#!&.
https://www.replaypoker.com/hand/replay/512366970AK, I shove, 2 players call me. No one’s afraid to call here, of course. I hit top two pair, and am blasted out of the game anyway by a broadway straight to end my @#@#%y run.
I guess the lesson is, playing poker is impossible when you’re able to play 1/50 hands. Also, throwing away your chips in anger is not a great way to win.
I’ll have to work on it. But mainly I’m just super angry at the way my luck has gone. I can handle a bad beat. I can’t handle dozens of hands over a week going south on me on top of ice ages that go on for 40-50 minutes or more.
