When the cards come your way ...

Amazing how much the cards can make you or break you some days. Last night, for example ...

OPT freeroll at Dream Poker: My trip Aces get beaten by someone who hits a runner runner full house. Having lost most of my stack, I go all in with pocket 10's. I get called by pocket Aces. You guessed it - I get a 10 on the flop. Later on, I have a straight and go all in after the turn, only to get called by someone with two pair. The river: you guessed it - a 3 to complete my opponent's full house.

Poker Host qualifier for Deep Pockets $15,000 guaranteed tourney in August: I am heads up against a player I know is good. He unfortunately gets pocket Aces and doesn't raise up immediately. My cards: 6-2os. The flop 6-2-rag. he bets, I call. The turn: a 2! I check, he goes all in, and I call. I imagine that he was quite shocked to see that I already had the boat.

Gotta love this game!
