Ace Crackers and Getting Wasted

I played a couple of days ago at JG again, the same big stack long levels game that we've started to play recently. I was really intent on bagging a win this time, and ive been sharpening the SnG skills online too hehe. I started the game playing solid, till i trapped this other guy with two-pair A-J making him push all in on the river after i feigned weakness and checked the turn when the Ace came out, almost doubling me up!

At the 150-300 level, i had about 5,000+ in my stack, which i think was 2nd or 3rd in chips, and we were 6 or 5 handed at this point (we started with 11 players). I got Aces UTG, and raised it to 900. Everyone folds except the Big Blind, who takes quite a long time thinking before deciding to raise me to 2,000. I promptly push my remaining 4,000+ in the pot, and i have him covered by more than 1,000. He takes several minutes before declaring that he was gonna make a bad call, and shows pocket 8's! I'm already thinking about how im gonna run over the rest of the players after winning this hand when the flop comes 7-8-9! No help from the turn or river and i'm down to 1,000. BB comes to me and i get pushed all-in by a raiser, which i call with KJ and it holds up. I'm thinking i can still do some damage and make a comeback, and a few hands later i raise to 600 in LP with A9, and get one caller. Flop comes Ace and two spades, and i push 1600 all-in. Other player thinks for about 5 seconds and makes the call with a K-high flush draw. River is a spade and im out! ouch! Those damn aces...

Better to bust out with the best hand than on a crappy play right? yeah sure, it still sucks though hehe.

Next day i got to play with the same guys at a friend's house on her birthday party, just a fun 100 buy-in game. Got tipsy and played like a loose-caboose and donked my way to busting out at third. We then proceeded to get drucking funk on this great tasting white wine which i think our host had several cases ready for the guests hehe. Damn i've never been so wasted in my life! i think i was having a drunken debate with this other person about religion and shit! I hardly remember going home (hitched a ride with JG) and good thing i didnt bring a car since i couldnt even walk straight! Damn, good thing i didnt get a hangover today, that wouldve sucked big time. So that's what it's like to get puke-drunk and have the world spinning and shit like that. I'm not a drinker and i've never gotten that drunk in my life, so that was a new experience for me!

Let's do it again! hehe!

till next time... watch your back!

Puke Drunk>? Welcome to my world lol..

yeah ang sarap haha!

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
