DADI, Why Don't You Love Me?
I played in the Donkeys Always Draw Invitational, DADI 8, last night. I'll let Vince and Mike do the play by play for us.
Mike: MrsBuzz opens for a raise. Folds around to the small blind, a Father of 3 girls from Houston, and he raises with his pocket 9s. That's a nice hand to have in the small blind.
Vince: He's looking to get a few chips from the blinds and test out the initial raiser.
Mike: And over to the young kid from Atlanta in the big blind......
Vince: Uh-Oh, Fireworks, he's picked up the Mother of All Hands, Weapons of Mass Destruction, a Pair of Aces! He's got showtunes going off in his head.
Mike: How's he going to play it Vince? He's already seen a raise and a reraise. Does he just call or.....wait a minute, look at that...he raises it up to 3000! I like this bet Vince, he's hoping someone is playing AK or a high pocket pair and wouldn't mind a little confrontation for some chips and he's saying "come on, let see some gamble."
Mike: MrsBuzz folds and JJOK calls from the small blind.
Vince: Flop comes X, 9, 10.
Mike: Oh no, this could spell disaster to the fine young Auburn grad. That was just the card that JJOK was hoping to see on the flop.
Mike: Some betting may have occurred on the flop, I was too busy looking at the cocktail waitress to notice. Here's the turn.
Vince: Another 10, JJ has made a boat.
Mike: Looks like BrainMc is about to make a play....He's counting out some chips....That second 10 has him worried. He's wondering if his opponent was playing 10,10 or A,10 suited.
Vince: Little does he know, it was the 9 on the flop that put him behind.
Mike: Well there he goes, he's putting his opponent on a pair of Jacks, Queens, or Kings and pushes all-in.
Vince: JJOK gladly makes the call and shows his dominating hand.
Mike: Brian is hoping for an A or a 10 for a bigger boat. One card to go...And he doesn't get it!
Vince: JJOK successfully cracks Brain's Aces with his nines.
Mike: Well Vince you know what they say with Aces, you can win a little or lose a lot.
Courtney: Tough break there Brain.
BrainMc: Well, I felt good about my play for most of the night. I didn't have to rebuy and I just took the add-on to minimize my cost. I tried to play conservative like my boy, Mow. I just didn't put him on that hand and it cost me.
Courtney: Tell us about the hand that knocked you out tonight.
BrainMc: I was just telling my wife a couple of hands before about how much I like JJOK and how friendly he is. Now all I can say is @#%%&** him. LOL. Hopefully he put my chips to good use took down the whole thing. Next time my pretty, next time. So Courtney, you wanna go get a drink, I heard you got fired.
A funny thing about this hand. After I raised up to T3000, we had a power blip. Fortunately, I had my PC and modem on a UPS. LOL. I can only imagine how pissed I would have been if I had had my hand folded because I timed out. The poker gods tried to get me out of the hand, but technology , ummm, saved me. Thanks APC for your wonderful product. I would have only lost T3000 if I wasn't using you. HaHA.
