I took a 5 day weekend culminating in Memorial Day this past Monday. With no family plans (kids are in school), I decided to go & play in Baltimore on Thursday and Friday. Unfortunately, I was card dead for the huge majority of the time; I was fighting being in for a buy in until I finally hit a cooler against a kid who considers himself a pro. As played, I feel I could have gotten away from the hand; it likens back to the hand that played out a few weeks ago against the drunk kid who bet 2 buy ins on the river.
Again, this is against a self-titled pro:
1/3 - Deep stacked $800 effective stacks, I'm dealt AA in mid position, I raise to $20.
Called in 2-3 spots and we see a flop of Ad Kd 3s.
I lead for $25 and "pro" raises to $55. Note: pro hasn't gotten out of line since I've been at the table, quietly going about his business and not getting aggressive unless he shows down the nuts.
I size up the situation, realizing that he's never folding my next bet, so I raise to $165 - he snap calls. I put him on a set of 3's.
Turn is 2c - I lead for $300 and he raises all in for $565 remaining - I obviously snap call and he never shows his 3's.
River runs clean and I scoop a huge pot.
Next day, I'm playing during the day with $365 effective - I call a $15 raise with 4 4, as does an annoying woman to my left.
Flop comes K Q 6 and it checks through (I'm ready to check out if there's a bet).
Turn is a 4 putting out 2 spades and annoying woman leads for $45. I raise to $120 and she insta shoves. I call and am shown KK.
Nice no 3bet and nice flop check. I'm outplayed and I'm done for the second session in as many days :-(.
