One of those days

played a small 7 player SNG at JGPT last night. small buy-in, turbo game for fun. decided to go kamikaze and call any raise and see every flop, turn, and river.

i hit everything i played. Trips, two pair, top pair, flsuh, straights, everything.

i called a 200 pre-flop raise with 3-4 off, flop comes 2-5-6 rainbow.

When it came down to heads up, i went all in and got a runner runner flush.

how i wish i had a game like that in one of the BIG games or tourneys hehe.

On another topic, there are games EVERYWHERE now! It seems that everyone has his or her own game. Poker clubs (and rooms?) sprouting like mushrooms. This is a poker players' dream come true. Game selection is now a reality. I know this will ultimately be good for the poker community. The only drawback is some unscrupulous characters might want to take advantage. I know it's unlikely but it is not impossible to see colluders or even cheaters and hustlers. Even the authorities might want to use the poker craze as a scapegoat in the "fight" against illegal gambling. but it comes with the territory, so let's just be ready for those things.

Till the next game.

Quote of the Day

  • The best poker I've ever played has always entailed peace. A relaxed comfort. Eyes open, ears open, radar up. Absorbing my opponent's every message. Taking them as they come. Not mixing what those messages are with what I want them to be. It's like an aerial view. A view from above the myriad luck-dependent reactions of those many people who never gain such a peace. And when you gain that view, that peace - when you'd rather have the truth, no matter how disappointing, over a false hope, no matter how desirable - then you're a player. The hand you're on slips into a stream of thousands of other hands, no one of which, because of your lofty view, seems unduly important, no false fearful emotions rise within you. When you gain the peace of lofty perspective, you're a player, and when you're a player, you're free.- from "King of a Small World" by Rick Benett
