Me and my boys, Frankie, G-Man (Gary is no longer Jew Boy, G-Man it is!) and Lucki Duck played some poker last night and it wasn't pretty.
It was just bad beat, after bad beat, after bad beat. And I'm not just saying that because I lost.
We played (3) one table games.
Game 1 - $11+1 (9) person turbo
Lucki Duck didn't make it on time to get in on this game. I guess he is lucky! Frankie, Gary and I were out on bad beats....please don't ask me to remember them! No one cashed.
Game 2 - $5+.50 (9) person
Lucki Duck was out early when his pocket aces were cracked by pocket queens. Duck raised, and the bad guy re-raised to 510 chips. I was next with pocket nines, which I folded....then the two of them were all in.
Flop was 2,9,10....I would've flopped trips! Turn was a Q, trips for the bad guy. River was a J and Duck's goose was cooked.
Gary was doing fine chipwise, but called a big raise with Jack Ten. Flop was 10, rag, rag.....all in, and his opponent had an ace, which turned into a pair of aces on the turn. Bu-bye G-man.
I saw alot of bad beats so I dunno which happened here, but rest assured I didn't cash.
Frankie came in 3rd....only one of us good guys in the money.
Game 3 - $5+.50 (9) Person
It sucked! My only bad play of the night was my last one. Calling an all in against a guy who had two pair....and I had middle pair. Really dumb, but at that point I had so many terrible beats I was frustrated. Plus the flop was 8 high and thought I was okay. Then G-man was out, and then the Duck....again just horrible beats.
Frankie held on and played steady solid poker....plus he had me to keep him company and urge him on. I tend to be a good luck charm....he was a little shortstacked but doing fine.
Then they were down to two, so I wanted to offer Frankie extra incentive to win it outright. Hmmmm, I racked my brain thinking what carrot can I offer????? Came up with my good home cooking, but he's too far away. Thought of a few other things too, but he's so young. I can't corrupt him. Then I thought of it!
My write up! A favorable write up by Very Josie! Who wouldn't want that! It obviously did the trick because Frankie won first place in game 3. If he didn't I would've hit him with a hanger. ;)
Frankie was the hands down winner, and he's my winning horse for the next Very Josie, might I add.
Fun freaking time. It cost me $24 for the fun time, but it was totally worth it. I just feel bad for the 5 other guys at the table who had to endure my presence long after I was knocked out.
If any of you guys can offer details of your demise, or details in general, please comment, as I need the help.
I'm heading for bed. I have to be in work at 8:30am and damn I'm tired.
Nice, nice guys....all of you.
