Stupid Is As Stupid Does

Yeah - that just about sums it up pretty well.

After sitting out The Big Game on Sunday, I was ready to make my first try at blogger nirvana at Monday at the Hoy (MATH). Unfortunately, about 20 minutes into the tournament, I was dealt Ah-Qh. The flop: Kh-Jh-rag. I have been doing a pretty good job of not chasing recklessly, but the thought of possibly getting Royal Flush #2 filled my head like like the smell of cheap wine to a street alcoholic. Although I know it was stupid, I not only chased after the flop but after the turn as well. These poor decisions led to a depleted stack early in the game, putting me at quite a disadvantage. Even with picking up some easy chips since Astin was nowhere to be found and was blinding out, I didn't hit some crucial flops when I thought I had a chance to move back to an average stack. I ended up waiting for a big hand and then moved all in, but I lost -- and was outro. What a waste.

The good thing about poker, however, is that the chance for redemption usually lies right around the corner. I plan on playing at tonight's Bodonkey on Bodog and the Skills Series on Full Tilt.

And no Royal Flush chasing tonight.

Good luck tonight!!! See you at the Skills game. (I've got a good 90 more minutes to learn how to play stud.)
