After pissing about on the phone with the idiots at Virgin Atlantic for over 49 minutes this morning trying to amend flights, I got here with 5 minutes to spare, as I of course can't afford to miss a single hand with this stack.
Third hand of the day...I look down at...AA. Lovely. I make it 15K to go with blinds at 500/2500/5000...and everybody folds. Even the guys with 200-300K. That just about says it all really doesn't it.
63 get paid and 80 remain. I like a challenge.
The giant housefly from 2 days ago somehow has a lot of chips. He makes a call to an all-in on the turn with 33 on an 8539 board, and 46 rivers a seven for a straight. What fun poker can be.
My day just ended when UTG raises to 12500, another player calls, I squeeze out 10 10 and shove for 38K. The old grunter two to my left now starts shaking like a shitting dog, and then announces all-in as well for 85K or so. The original raiser with a big stack calls. Well, this is my pot to get back into it then.
Original raiser: AK
Me: 10 10
Shitting dog: JJ
Well that sucks. If I had the JJ covered I wouldn't mind, but of course some people can't see past their own two cards. The initial raiser was obviously calling and had it been me I might have thrown JJ away as it would be 3 way and I'd have invested 500 chips and not 85,000.
However, not everyone thinks like me. We've seen that already.
The board runs out blanks and the JJ wins. gg,gl etc etc. Out in 75th or so.
Wynn $600 $250K guaranteed event next. Never say die then.
