Who is this "Hoyazo" that

just fucked me?



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.

I call.

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. 

Play smart.

Little hint with Hoy: 3bet light. Especially when in position. And when out of position, 4bet light :-)

I told ya to "Rejam him" not call his all in with AQ. :P. Your so cute when you play poker. :). (I am so gonna get killed)

Josie said...

Waffles I know! I should've waited until I was in position to reraise. Next time though....

Josie said...

Oh and I'm cute while doing other activities too. :P

Hey, at least he had a hand. The last Mookie I played he was in the SB to my BB and kept stealing when it folded to me. I knew he was stealing but my cards sucked so I had to let him get away with it. Finallt caught J-J and when he made his raise I jammed and he called, with a K-7. Of course the flop came X-7-7. And adding the insult was the K on the turn. Such a luck sack

Josie said...

Yeah, he had a hand THAT time. Hi Wolfie baby! Long time no hear - I require more attention that you're giving me. :)

How the fuck do you every lose a showdown to Hoy???

I never have and he is certainly willing to confirm that.

Josie said...

I lost one showdown to him - the one that counted...

and you never have huh? I'm assuming you've played with him a bunch of times...

All in with best hand every time still doesn't mean you will win every time, so.....you must be using magic. :)

There's a dozen or so "stories" about "bad beats" to Hoy on a weekly basis. The way I see it, that's just plain poker. If you look deep into your little bag of Josie tricks, (not that one, but thanks for the fun thoughts!) he did get you to do exactly what he needed to right?

From a few I'll take crap for it and from a few others, I'll get the head nod of approval. BUT since the last time I checked Poker actually had EF' all to do with a popularity contest, I'll say Hoy played the game and you there Jo.

"...I'll say Hoy played the game and you there Jo."

I agree bammer - don't get me wrong, I thought it was well done - just mad at myself that I let it happen.

"circa 1980'somethin'ish" - Old man! :)

Been in a funl lately, haven't felt like doing squat since everything I do is turning out frikkin wrong.

Josie said...

wolfie - we can't all be in a funk at the same time. And I'm sure things will turn again - they always do.

win 10% of my showdowns with Chad.

Waffles 2 outs me a lot since he is lucky retard.

I may have lost one flip to MiamiDon in 4 years..

Tournaments I need LJ drawing dead to win, cash hands hold.

Vs. Hoy I KNOW I will hit my draw or my hand will hold.

Over time there just seem to be people that hold over me and others that I pwn.
