I just busted out of The Mookie. Small field, 13 players I think, which means 2 small tables. I have Hoyazo one away, to my left. And whenever I'm in a pot he raises or reraises and I end up folding a couple of hands that may have been the best, but not worth the tourney.
So I have my fave hand and raise 3 times the blind or 180. Hoy reraises to 710. Big blind folds, I fold and he shows a 7-2....The Hammer. This is after fucking with me repeatedly.
Next hand I have A-Q sooted. Hoy raises to 180, bb reraises to 540. I call. Hoy jams all in and BB folds. I know I gotta fold here, but I keep thinking about that last hand and the hands leading up to it.
He shows KK. Flop is Q high, but I catch no other cards and I'm out.
Here's what I think. Had he waited till after the flop to jam with an over pair, I'd still have all my chips in. That's be a much easier call. It just pisses me off that his fucking with me resulted in me making a bad call.
The funny thing is he played exactly how I play. Usually I'm very aggressive, like him. If you're telling me your hand is worth 3x the big blind, well then you're also telling me that it isn't worth, say 10x. So let's put you to the test. It's an easy way to accumulate chips and it's best done against a tight player. And damn, there's nothing I like better than getting a big pocket pair after a hand I've just raised.
No, I'm not a tight player, but I don't think Hoy knows that, and I certainly appeared tight tonight. I didn't get many playable hand so all I seemed to do is fold, or fold afer Hoy reraised me.
Very interesting. I wouldn't mind playing with him at my table again.
