Welcome to My Life

Yeah, it's a bad beat hand history. I don't fucking care.

I sit patiently waiting to pick off the fucking asshole playing any two suited, the guy who has already cracked kings and aces with Q5s and Q9s (flopping two pair both times), the guy who has seen his stack fluctuate from 5000 to 40000 to 15000 to 30000 because he plays EVERY FUCKING HAND.

And still I wait. As my stack stays the same for TWO FUCKING HOURS because I'm not getting involved with even the best marginal hands against these complete morons. I raise with AKs, get called and when the flop comes JT8, I KNOW I'M BEAT. So I fold. And wait.

Here's what it gets me:

I don't mean to sound as a rubber-of-it-in, but last night I played two O8 SNGs on FTP. In both the chip leader with four or five to play was in on every hand, and I had sat there and bided my time. Eventually, I landed starters, pushed when I flopped, and chopped them down. Won both of the SNGs.

This is the first morning I felt like I've seen the sun shine after a night of online poker in months. My first morning without a bad beat in ages.

Damn, BG! Rub a little more salt in the wound why don't you.

I haven't played poker in about a month. I can't wait to get on today and reraise some douchebags.

You must not have alerted the table to your status as a World Series of Poker player. Maybe he wouldn't have gone along for the ride.

I think poker is cheating on us both. Stupid poker.

The trick is to have 4 bloggers hop into the table and tell everyone they're going to get beat... then lose with AA vs. 97o :)
