Thursday Night Poker (TNP) 17th January


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.

    ya and it would have really helped you if I hadn’t kept pushing for the blinds to double right…. um sorry about that. Was your turn though. Well done.

    No sweat dude. All is fair… it could have very easily gone the other way. And besides… we went all in – blinds be damned.
