Mike made me do it

Yea real work really has taken over most of my free time. Especially because I have not made any money yet. It takes so long to go from getting a client to a paycheck that it really sucks. That’s why I have not played too much. I would be on a short bank roll and don’t want to play like that.

I did go once the other day and ended with such a bad beat that I didn’t want to go back. I was not going to write about it because I try to stay away from bad beat blogs. But considering it was about a week and a half ago and I still remember it like it was yesterday, ill share.

Now the beat its self was just like any other bad beat. That’s not what cost me so much money. It was the fact that this person played her hand the worst way possible on every street except the river. Ok it was 5 limpers preflop, The button is the only person who called behind me and I have pocket 7’s. The flop is 7,5,2, with two diamonds. Bb checks utg bets, one person folds and I smooth call. Button raises. BB calls two bets cold. Utg calls so do I. As I am calling, a read flashed in my head that the button has a flush draw. I could have three bet but I didn’t want to give away the strength of my hand. The turn was a 3. Bb checks utg checks, now because it wasn’t a diamond I bet into the button. Everyone just calls. The river is the money card for me, the 3 of diamonds. Everyone checks to me and I already know the button has the diamonds so I check. He bets, BB raises, I 3 bet. Button gets all pissed and folds. BB raises, I raise, they raise, I raise, they raise, now at this point I want to raise again. I think to myself that there is no way that they would have called two bets cold on the flop with 3’s. Then if they did why didn’t they raise on the turn? They already had everyone in the pot, so we would have called the second bet. At this point I really want to raise again. But I tell myself that she wouldn’t raise that many times with out quads. So I just call. Yup, four threes. I still won money for that day, but to make sure I did I left shortly after that hand.

Well thanks again for everyone keeping up with my blog. Ill try to do a better job, but itll be slow until I get some cash flow.
