Frustration is... Getting it all in WAY ahead only to find out that your opponent hit a 2 outter on the flop setting your profit for the night from +40 within 125 hands to -10:
korser (SB): $22.40
OmasSparstrumpf (BB): $10.00
Hero (UTG+1): $54.55
Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is UTG+1 with As Ac
UTG calls $0.50, Hero raises to $2.50, 3 folds, BTN raises to $8.50 all in, 2 folds, UTG calls $8, Hero raises to $18, UTG raises to $48, Hero raises to $54.55 all in, UTG calls $6.10 all in
Flop: ($117.45) 8d 6d 4d
Turn: ($117.45) Qc
River: ($117.45) Qs
Final Pot: $117.45
BTN shows Kc Ah (a pair of Queens)
UTG shows 6c 6s (a full house, Sixes full of Queens) - Really? Shoving pre flop with 66?
Hero shows As Ac (two pair, Aces and Queens)
UTG wins $89.50
UTG wins $24.95
Frustration is... When the donkeys hit every single card that they need, then min betting?
Hero (CO): $52.05
Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is CO with Kc Qh
1 fold, UTG+1 raises to $1, 3 folds, Hero calls $1, 2 folds, BB calls $0.50
Flop: ($3.25) 7c 3d Qc (3 players)
BB checks, UTG+1 bets $2, Hero raises to $6, BB folds, UTG+1 calls $4
Turn: ($15.25) 9s (2 players)
UTG+1 bets $0.50, Hero raises to $5, UTG+1 calls $4.50
Not so happy with my turn bet; should have been more, but I probably saved myself money.
River: ($25.25) 9c (2 players)
UTG+1 bets $0.50, Hero calls $0.50
You make the flush and then you min bet? LOL! Good value!!
Final Pot: $26.25
Hero mucks Kc Qh
UTG+1 shows 3c Tc (a flush, Queen high) - Good PF raise, and calling of a 3bet! Glad you got paid for your risk... a whole $0.50!!!
UTG+1 wins $24.95
Frustration is... when you find yourself in for more than a buy in, midway through the night due to variance
Frustration is... when you finally work your way back to positive a half buy in (which sets you to in the black for the month), only to get sucked out on once again & find yourself in the hole again
Frustration is... when you ONCE again work your way to marginally positive, another donkey stacks you on a suckout
Vindication is... despite all of the frustration, showing a [marginal] profit for the night, despite getting thrown the best that variance can throw your way
Not that it helps, but I looked up my all-in pot equity calculations from Hold'em Luck, and found that this month I'm running $-245 in all in situations. Joy.
