While working on my recap...

Some days we just run like a god.

I was working on my recap of Eh Vegas and playing in the Riverchasers BBT4 event basically folding every hand dealt to me. (When I sat down at the table, Kat and I were about the only two that weren't LAGtards) I did a lot of folding. Took a stab at one pot with second pair, top pair calls. It happens. I still have time and chips.

I successfuly muck hand after hand after hand only once raising and entering a pot (72o - what else - it also flopped trip 7s - BOOM - of course no one wants to play with me) until I get AA. 

OK, I took everyone's advice and played my aces hard. I just got unlucky, right? Is there yet another way I should play this?

Oh well, back to writing my recap.

86% favorite preflop -- guaranteed to lose in a blogger event, correct? Next time -- fold. Play the good stuff like 8-3os if you want to stay around.

Lightning, has that been your secret? I'd probably had still been fine from this little ace cracking session had I not donked off the chips earlier. Live and learn, right?

I had aces three times last night. Twice I only won the blinds. I had KK once - I got a walk in the BB. I had QQ once - I got a walk in the BB.

Poker is rigged.

I notice that besides the flush, he also had a straight, just to make sure. It's so rigged, I tell you.

Hi there. This blog is awesome for a casino niche.
Hope to do some link exchange with you.

IMO you played the hand perfectly (if that can be said about any hand). I like the raise size preflop to isolate the limper. I like the call when the shortstack shoves (obv :).

I think you just ran in to a level one thinker who wasn't paying attention to your play and went ooo, ooo, ooo I've got an ace and it's soooted, must shove!
