Lucky Straights

The ramblings and mumblings of a wannabe poker pro

End of Session

Well after a little beauty sleep I decided to hit the tables again, although not a winning strategy, I was only really hoping to cash, 3rd place would do, as that 60c profit coupled with my earlier 1st place winnings would turn my earlier losses into a slight increase on my bankroll.

I did a little better then that though and came 2nd. 1st place was on the table for me, but my opponent made his flush on the river and took the chip lead at a crucial moment, my stack was decimated and I never recovered.

It was a huge battle for me, by having to resist the temptation to see the flop, following one of many huge pre-flop raises and then having to remain a float whilst I was card dead. Once it became shorthanded, the game was a total bloodbath!

I couldn’t put him on a hand which I could beat that he would go all-in with here, so I folded. Even if he only had a set with the case ace, its almost certain is kicker was better then mine.

Tired to take down a pot with A9 off suite as I was getting desperate for chips, but the flop didn’t fall my way.

Had to push all-in here, been card dead for ages and my stack was critically low, thankfully it payed off for me.

This was probably the highlight. I was fearing a straight on the turn to beat my flopped two pair, but come the river I was relieved 🙂 My opponent didn’t hold much competition here.

Here’s the hand that cost me the tournament, just not immediately. As soon as he went all-in on the flop, I new he had the flush draw. I think I made the right decision here…?

The final hand. I must have been steaming after the previous hand to go all-in here on little but hope.
