Published by under Declan,Poker

This it too painful to retype, so I’ll paste from my ranting IM with TJ this morning.  Some of the language has been edited to make me look less like a tard:
(8:01:27 AM) declansnwl: i’m fretting and fuming!
(8:01:36 AM) TJ Fiske: whats wrong
(8:01:37 AM) declansnwl: played in the TNT poker tournament last night
(8:01:44 AM) declansnwl: and got @#&*ED!!!
(8:01:57 AM) TJ Fiske: oh that one that john did
(8:02:04 AM) TJ Fiske: yeah i got booted pretty quick also last time
(8:02:08 AM) TJ Fiske: (last year)
(8:02:08 AM) declansnwl: yeah, he paged me later that he won!
(8:02:18 AM) declansnwl: ok, so there are a bunch of rounds
(8:02:20 AM) TJ Fiske: OMG really
(8:02:28 AM) declansnwl: and i get out in the first round
(8:02:36 AM) declansnwl: bad cards, waa, whatever
(8:03:07 AM) declansnwl: BUT, i stick around and play a losers lounge game because there’s a raffle for a seat at the finalists table
(8:03:33 AM) declansnwl: John hands me 10 tickets for that – some friend of his bought them for $2 each and didn’t want to stick around
(8:03:45 AM) declansnwl: and I won a spot at the table!!!
(8:04:22 AM) declansnwl: I’m pretty low stack – 1000 chips while others have nearly 3000
(8:04:34 AM) declansnwl: FIRST HAND – Pair of Jacks!!!!
(8:04:45 AM) declansnwl: hmm, not the strongest hand, but ok, i’ll call
(8:04:51 AM) declansnwl: many people call
(8:05:01 AM) declansnwl: comes the flop, 2 J 4
(8:05:05 AM) declansnwl: WHOA! 3 Jacks!
(8:05:12 AM) TJ Fiske: nice!
(8:05:20 AM) declansnwl: someone calls, I go all in
(8:05:40 AM) declansnwl: i gotta bring my stack up anyway, and I got the best possible hand
(8:05:45 AM) declansnwl: ANOTHER guy goes all in
(8:05:59 AM) declansnwl: i’m like WTF! I’ve got the Jacks!
(8:06:10 AM) declansnwl: we flip cards, he’s got pocket 2s!  (One a Club)
(8:06:24 AM) declansnwl: my 3 Jacks KILL him, right?
(8:06:30 AM) TJ Fiske: exactly
(8:06:30 AM) declansnwl: right? right?
(8:06:37 AM) declansnwl: FOUR
(8:06:39 AM) declansnwl: RUNNING
(8:06:44 AM) declansnwl: CLUBS
(8:06:51 AM) declansnwl: FLUSH, I’m out
(8:06:56 AM) TJ Fiske: F-me
(8:07:02 AM) declansnwl: i did the odds
(8:07:04 AM) TJ Fiske: absolute bull@#%*
(8:07:18 AM) declansnwl: i had him 99.85%
(8:07:28 AM) TJ Fiske: that guy doesn’t know that he just won the lottery on that one
(8:07:42 AM) declansnwl: i’m still reeling
(8:07:43 AM) declansnwl: ;)
(8:07:46 AM) declansnwl: ha
(8:07:51 AM) TJ Fiske: dude i can imagine
(8:08:12 AM) declansnwl: i was numb for a while
(8:08:17 AM) TJ Fiske: yeah
(8:08:18 AM) declansnwl: now i’m pissed
(8:08:20 AM) TJ Fiske: i hear ah
(8:08:24 AM) TJ Fiske: can’t be pissed
(8:08:29 AM) declansnwl: gotta blog this…  too painful…
(8:08:30 AM) declansnwl: ;)
(8:08:35 AM) TJ Fiske: its just a lucky draw, ur skills were dead on
(8:08:47 AM) declansnwl: well, what if i’d’ve slow played it?
(8:08:49 AM) TJ Fiske: and yes, you need to blog this
(8:08:53 AM) declansnwl: he might not have gone all in
(8:09:02 AM) TJ Fiske: yeah u did right
(8:09:09 AM) TJ Fiske: he went all in on a pair of 2’s!!!!
(8:09:19 AM) TJ Fiske: that’s dumb #@*% playing, and he got rewarded for it
(8:09:23 AM) TJ Fiske: u should be pissed
(8:09:27 AM) declansnwl: he had 3 with the flop
(8:09:41 AM) TJ Fiske: oh, still when u went all in first
(8:09:45 AM) TJ Fiske: should have been a sign
(8:09:48 AM) declansnwl: right

I just can’t catch a break in poker this week… First Gabe kicks all our butts again (yawn…) then I do a little practise at home and get (I’m the “Loser” position each time):

Then I go all in again in this:
