Dead Assed Last (Almost)
Out of the eight, I finished seventh.
I lost a little over half my stack to Big Daddy when I got him all-in on the turn with his trip queens versus my broadway straight. Of course the river paired the board giving him a boat. ARG!
My next big hand was against Josh and Edie. I open shoved my final $45 (4 1/2 BB) with A-K. Josh though awhile before calling with his final $35 with A-Q, and Edie also called for her final $35 with A-3. I leaned over and whispered to Tin Man, "I think that three's gonna get me."
Sure enough the flop had a three in the window. The turn, three. The river, another three, giving Edie quads and knocking me down to one BB. I pushed my next hand (K-9) and paired my 9 on the flop, but a J on the turn and an A on the river paired both my opponents and sent me to the rail.
The $2 buy-in cash game went well and I cashed out with a $6 profit, making me even- steven for the night. No big hands really, although I did push Bev of a better hand with a large river bet to take down a nice pot.
Good times with good people!
Till next time, win the flips.
