It was just another one of those nights. The TuckFard Open started up with a decent crowd and I made the mistake of playing good cards once again. The best hand I played that I didn't lose, was a desperate, (read frustrated) push with "the Carson" sooted. Of course that BS hit huge and managed to hold on for a triple up. The problem I had was hitting my sooted A-K to the point of a flop of As-9d-Kh to go with my Ad-Kd. Why would I think I was ahead, when there might be a 3s-4s out there willing to push all-in? Of course runner-runner took care of me there.
I then ran A-K sooted into 8-8 with the blinds at 100/200 and I made it 1200 to go. 8-8 is a powerful hand too right? Why not put all the chips in the pot with that, after a 6x raise. RnG figures...."It's Bam, let's have a little fun." A flop of K-6-A oughta' do it, followed by a turn 7 and the ever popular river 8.
It just doesn't matter anymore. I make a move and hit, I lose on the river to an Ace high call. I hit large, lose on the river to a chaser with the nutz. Me an' RnG, we just don't see eye to eye right now.
The worse my cards were tonight, the more success I'd have with them. The better I hit, the more painful the loss would be. It's been a blast RnG, YOU ROCK! Three days in a row of kicking my ass. So let's check the score....
RnG 1,000,000 vs. Bam-Bam $58.50
Nice three days of work. I guess I should play a few hundred games to get even! The odds of variance have to be in my favour, RIGHT? That's probably the right thing to do, but I find live variance is easy to handle. The RnG variance however, is a life sucking bitch from which there is no escape.
The best of the best.....
Omaha H/L and I have K's over Q's........ until the river. Nothing better than that 1 outer case Queen coming on the river to make quads. Sweeeeeeeeeet !
I did however have one great laugh tonight. For a TuckFard, there is no better flop than this one.
This was in the TuckFard Open II, as requested by his Al'ness after an early bust out last week. You ask Sir, the TuckFards deliver.
If you have a spare $3.50 and some time to loosen up your play. Every Monday at 8:00pm. it's The Tuckfard Open II. The game is HORSE............ for Donkeys.
Bring it on!
