Live Poker: Net winnings of $1! I shiat you not. It's $5 per game. First game had 5 peeps for $25 total prize. When it was down to 2 of us, we split and I got $12. So I'm up $7 at this point. Lost 2nd game so down another $5....down to $2, and then I had a $1 side bet with Noodles that I lost. Big $1 winner!
I played The Mookie and was out early. 7 or 8 peeps, with Buddy making a late entrance. I lost to Buddy when I flopped top pair and he turned a flush.
Then I played a $3 (90) person. Got lucky 3 times when I went all in with 2nd best hand and caught miracle rivers. 3 freaking times! Anyway I get short stacked when there are 14 peeps left and I keep hanging on...trying to make it to the money. 9 itm. I finally get there and guess who else is at the final table?
I had no idea he was in the game. He had a few more chips than me, but I got lucky when my AJ sooted was up against AK. I caught my flush and a bunch of insults from Mr. AK, but hey, that's poker. I ignored him. Imagine that...me who has been known to run my gums. I just figure it's a lose/lose situation. Yeah he had the best hand preflop and yeah, I got lucky. But doesn't he know by now that's part of poker? Maybe insulting strangers makes him feel better. I hope so.
Anyway, finally it was down to Me, Lucky Duck and some guy. Ducky went out 3rd and then we were heads up. And that's where I suck, suck, sucked. We played heads up for about 15 minutes and although I had the lead for half the time, I just couldn't hold onto it. Made a desperate move when I was short stacked and then I was out.
Clicky on snapshot for proof that I OWN Lucky Duck :)
Happy to get 2nd, yet why to feel so frustrated about it. I should've finished the job. Eh, there's always next time.
Play smart (like Lucky Duck and me).
