I honestly know when it happens!
I just don't know how to stop it yet.
Constantly putting up with the absolute tediousness of relentless Bammer, after Bammer, after Bammer, eventually manages to get to me. When it does, my weak ass performs at Hold'EM just about as good as most American "Stars" singing *their National Anthem.
I started out The Survivor Donkey Island/Mookie/Dank/Goat whatever, by busting Waffles with pocket 8's. His A-K did not improve on the flop, turn or river and voila, Bammer manages a quick double up. I'm not proud of all-in with 8-8 on the first hand actually but honestly, I figured it for a race and went with my gut. Just got lucky like a Donkey is all!
So by first break,
I'm in the lead.
The rule is quite simple actually, play the third in a row just like Aces.
It feels dirty when they're sooted, but chips are chips.
So after surviving dozens of Bammer's in a row, I'm still on the leader board after second break.
I've shown a total of 8 Bammer's and 5 Hammer's to the table, thus far through the second hour.
I then see monster action ahead of me, as I hold reasonable starting hands for the first time all night. Monster pots develop, as I opt to fold my not quite good enough for battle holdings.
Natch, only to see them unfold as follows.
I think this next one was my favourite!
So then they come at me again, and again, and again.
BamBamCan: [As-10h] <--- Of course 'it' happens here.
I ran that shite into Q-Q and to make things worse, it was a player I should know much better than to do that against.
Like I said, I know WHEN it happens.
I just haven't figured out HOW to stop it yet.
So in summary I guess, not much sucks quite as bad as playing good Poker and making some fairly smart decisions along the way. Having good timing for nearly three hours or so and surviving the game, despite the cards you are dealt. Only to have the bad 'it' take control of your mind, so the good 'it' doesn't stand a chance.
My sincerest thanks for dropping by....
