First one out, are you kidding me?!

Apparently, I am more in love with AQ than AJ. For some reason I was a big ole dumbass and felt like calling someone's all-in reraise after the flop while I am not even holding a pair. He flopped two pair and I never had a chance. Well that's not true, my chance was to fold and lose my raise but fight another day. I can't believe I made that call, there simply is no good way to explain it other than I thought the cards were "pertty." One hand later, I had the honor of being the first one out of Wil's tournament tonight. Let the junk kicking begin, I deserve it.

Part of what really sucks is how much I look forward to this particular game each week. I read the blogs of alot of the other players and think they are fantastic at the game. Socially, it is so much like a home game that I miss it when it is over. The people playing are so much fun and I really feel like I am becoming a better player because of the strength of the competition. I shouldn't let this week get me down, just consider it an $11 lesson on aggressive behavior.

With 14 people left, I raised preflop with AQ......BB raised me so I called.

Ace on the flop, he bets less than pot, I push, he calls with AK and that's all she wrote.

So for you and I, AQ absolutely blows.

Good luck on Thursday!!!

Don't sweat it Brian. I feel the same way about pushing with 99 against a raise...doh.

See you next week!

Just learn from your mistakes. Sorry if I was ribbing you, lol, but it was all just in fun. It was a pretty bad play but learn from it and dont do it again. Every poker player that learns from there play gets better.

Isn't it about time you show your wife how to add to your blog, so it truly is Brian AND Stacie's blog?
