I run good.... NO? ....

I ran really bad this weekend.

How bad?

How about busting out of ten games with the second nuts.
Yup, bad beats ahead!

The worst of which was where as second high chip stack, I flopped Quad's and got it in on the turn against the tables chip leader. Here's how that hand and for the most part, the rest of my weekend went.

Seat 1: sedera (485)
Seat 2: push_girl (365)
Seat 3: Badowin (1,440)
Seat 4: mity11 (1,425)
Seat 5: BamBamCan (3,155)
Seat 6: SperaK (3,450)
Seat 8: mot0man (1,355)
Seat 9: 1guy4games (1,780)
BamBamCan posts the small blind of 50
SperaK posts the big blind of 100
The button is in seat #4

SperaK shows [Ks Qs]
*** RIVER *** [8c Kd 8d Kh] [Kc]

Just re-reading that, makes me sick to my stomach.

But it was just one of those weekends. I ran a flopped set into higher flopped set, under-boats got caught by rivered over-boats and I would always be one card short of the nut straight or flush, every time I played them. I was behind in exactly one situation, the flopped sets. I was caught by a dominated hand in all of the other nine games.

Crap like that, just knocks the wind right out of your sails.

So I think I'll rest the rest of this week and take a little break. I don't know when my sails will again feel the breeze of NLHE, but I don't think it'll be anytime too terribly soon to be honest.

AND YOU KNOW I HEAR YOU ZOOKS! IT WAS JUST LIKE THAT FOR ME TOO.

My sincerest thanks for dropping by....

I think you owe us all a dollar for the bad beat story.

If that was a cash game on Absolute Poker, you would be XX thousand dollars richer right now!
