where the board is clean and the river is pretty...
OMG! I was worried about how I was playing lately, but last night was a testiment to the fact that sometimes its just not going to be your night.
I lost 4 of 4 races and it did not matter if I was the pair or the over cards, the other player was going to see a beautiful board. In the Mookie, I lost 3 races in the span of 10 minutes. The first two against short stacks and by the third, I was the short stack. In my league night game (Detroit local #344) I played back from 18th of 20th to finish 7th. I got a raise from the button on what looked like a 1/2 steal, 1/2 legit hand. I push knowing he cant call with a small pair but he surprises me and calls with 66. I have the big overs and IGHN. The only race I played in the entire tournament, including when I was the short stack.
Ah well, no grousing. I am playing better again, and got my money in good all night, so I guess that is the real message. Right? Anyone? A little help here?
