Joe wants our episode one to be epic and he wasnâ€™t happy with the 1st one. The coding is all done and it will be out shortly. Thanks to the fans who waited!
Well, poker went pretty well today. I ran really bad vs. a few fish but it was all a matter of time. After doubling up a short stacker with the middle of me â€œwell he shoves every hand I should call thisâ€, he bet/called AI with a 9hi FD vs. My AQ on an A43T. I rivered a queen but not the right one.
Somehow this guy stuck around! WTF?! Anyway I ended up check calling all in with 84s on a 356K2. He had K9 for the â€œbet you wouldnâ€™t have guess I had THATâ€ hand. Seriously. He folded to a ton of 3-bets and seeing as how he peeled a flop with K9s I like a 2nd barrel. Then given he bets K9 there Iâ€™d say I played every street perfectly. Unfortunately I would have shipped had I not hit and it would have blown up in my face. That being said I think I had 12 outs a ton (8 for the straight and 4 for the Ace as a bluff).
I even got to 2 table HULHE! And wow was it great. I ran SO BAD but it didnâ€™t matter, itâ€™s LHE! Like 5 hands of top pair and you win it back. 1 Villain would donk any piece and c/c the flop with everything else. He ran up like 30 bets on me in some sick sick coolers but seriously, what a soft spot! Like 15 minutes later he was bust.
One odd hand vs. him â€“ I raise A4o he calls. Flop is A42, I call planning on raising the turn. The turn is a ten and he c/râ€™s? I 3-bet and he capped. I then raised his river donk. He showed me 35 and I dunno about my play. On 1 level â€“ he 3-bet a ton (I left that out earlier). So i didnâ€™t give him credit for a good ace or a pocket pair. I think thatâ€™s far, that if he has 2 pair I have him destroyed. The question is â€“ do you think people donk out the nuts? Because I donâ€™t. Itâ€™s such a rare spot in LHE but still worth considering.
Villain #2 was the least remarkable man on the face of the earth.
Thanksgiving is coming so have a happy one and donâ€™t eat too much, the games will be good!
