Go me! I was able to get some seat time in last week after about a month off. I opted to "play down" at 1/2 to work off the rust. I quickly found myself in a $400 hole and tilting, something I rarely do. I ran my QQ into KK, AKs into KK, and a host of other mishaps. As readers of the blog know, I'm not prone to tilting nor do I usually let things get to me, but this table was an unusually difficult table for a 1/2 game. After running my AK into the KK, I RAN to a new table. Who needs this kinda aggravation?
My new table was FAR softer than the prior. I was able to work my way out of the 2 buy in hole and was actually up about 2 buy ins when the following happened (I was seated for around 4 hours a the new table):
I am dealt 9h3h in the SB and it limps around to me. I complete and the BB checks his option.
7-8 see a flop of Ah Kh 7c
It checks through to the turn Td.
I decide to get "frisky" on my flush draw. I seriously doubt anyone has ANYTHING here - they would certainly bet out the flop on a draw heavy board such as it is. I lead for $10 into the $~15 and immediately get min raised to $20 by the tight tight tight retiree to my left on the BB. We've been talking for the duration, so I know his type fairly well; he sits and waits to get paid off, and the fish, inevitably as fish do, pay him off continually. He's chipped up to $~500; as described above, I'm sitting on $800, so we're deep. I call on account of our being so deep. I have a crack at winning a lot because this guy seems to really love his hand.
River is 6h
I fire out $50
He raises to $150 and says "I'm gonna make it easy on you 'cause I like you. You should fold."
We've been talking quite a bit; he is a very nice guy - retired - "doesn't need the money..." yada yada yada.
