Sucking It Up

The new card room I attended tonight is like a larger Genoa. The $40+10 tournament had 18 players to start with about 4-6 more joining late. I'll make this short. I was the 2nd player out. The player on my right was a fat blowhard who was looking to go out fast when he realized how many players sat. He could've been bullshitting, sure, but I could tell that this fat slob in a nice suit thought he had better things to do. His cell conversation was a good indication too.

Now, I mention this because what I did was very gutsy. Even stupid. But I was working from a read, an incorrect one sadly, and I think that my move wasn't as bad as the results suggest. Okay, enough preamble. Here we go.

I'm in mid-position with AQo. Fat Slob is on my left. He's already called an all-in with A6 on an Ace high board after he was check-raised. Oddly, the other guy had A6 also, so it was a split pot. Fat Slob also played the two or three other hands so far.

So, he raises to 200 from 50 after I limp in MP. It goes around and everyone folds. I call. The flop is KQJ rainbow. I check, and I know what is going to happen. He pushes all-in. I make this speech, "I knew you were going to do that. I had a choice. Go all-in or let you do it and decide then. I think you might have AK...but, you know what, let's do it. I call." He flips over pocket Aces and I lose.

Okay. It was a bad move. I was hoping he had Ace Low again and was making a move. But realistically, he coulda had any King, AT, or KJ, QJ, etc. STUPID!!!

So, I'm home now, and I'm considering playing. I'm thinking I shouldn't chase the dragon. I still have some residue tilt over me. I think I'll watch Apprentice with wifey Kim. The show is crap, but the company is good.

On TV news, Dre told me that they red-flagged the delivery and it won't be delivered. Wifey Kim was rightly pissed. I called back Dre and told him to keep me posted. A couple of hours later, he finally got it worked out. Ah! The TV will be delivered between 2 and 4. Now, ready for the humorous part? My cable box stopped working this morning. The technician can't come until Tuesday night! It's not terrible because I can use our bedroom cable box in the living room. BUT, shit man! TVin' ain't easy! Don't believe me? Just ask Kip!

Yes this was the best TV writeup of the group!

Sorry about your lost. I would have walked to the corner store and bought the 'fat slob' a package of 'Oreos' or Fortune cookies one of the two.

Sorry I need to correct that for some odd reason.
