I won! Woohoo. Earned R300, while a very close second place went to Lucie who doubled up in the last hand. I had pocket 8s, she had Queen Ten… I moved all in after the flop of 6,7,9. I figured I’d only need a 5 or 10 for the straight. An 8 for a set or a 6,7 or 9 for a two pair. Don’t know what the odds were… but I’m thinking they’re good. She got lucky and hit the Queen on the turn… and the river was something useless like a 3. So she beat my pair of eights and cleared R280.
Interestingly… the more Jack I drank – the luckier I became. Well its a reason to not stay sober at these things.
