BBT #4

Like last night at the club, I am kicking myself for my play. Stopped thinking just before the break, and chased idiotically. The piece de resistance was this hand with Poker Bully. He had just been moved to my table, and said:

Poker_Bully1: hi katitude, you took all my chips and left the table
Poker_Bully1: now I'm back

then the hand (it was HU so everything else has been taken out):

I've commented before on how I have to curb a rather unnatural tendency towards optimism when I play NLHE; the two cards hold such possibilities when you're math-challenged.

Give me four cards and I'm dangerous. Chasing hands like it's the only exercise I get.

Oh wait. It is.


Dear Poker Bully, I do apologise if I came across as overly snarky (not intended as such), but I'm sure the addition of my chips to your stack made up for it *grin.

    I think with the top set and the flush draw, I think your opponent (poker bully) was ahead. That flop is basically death for your cards. You only have one pair and a straight draw if the T hits... except you know it can't be a club. I guess you were too short to do much else but I'm not sure if check folding here is really a bad option.

    Alan, I knew he was ahead, I knew the flop was bad for me, but I played it anyway.

    That was the point of my post, that I stopped thinking and chased idiotically.
