Q) What do these cards have in common:
- AK Suited
- J8 suited flush
- Full house
A) These are the last 6 hands (in 6 games) that I have had in poker and have been knocked out (No limit of course) by
- AK Suited -> Beaten by 6 8 off suite that linked up a straight
- QQQ -> Other guy had 3 Q too with higher kicker
- A8 -> beaten by KK
- AK -> beaten by 66
- J8 suited flush -> beaten by Ace nut flush
- Full house -> beaten by quad Qs
If I believed in luck I would say I was having a run of bad luck - I seem to get given very good cards which get pipped by not so good starting cards. I think I'd rather get rubbish cards and lose than keep hitting good cards and being pipped by extraordinary hands..... Whinge whinge whinge.
Ok, good, I got that off my chest. One advantage of having your own poker blog is that you can whinge about your bad beats ;)
These results mean that I go to the bottom of the Australian Poker League (well Sydney Poker League to be precise) - from winning it for 11th months of last year to the very bottom of the poker league scoreboard - oh the shame ;)
So, without further whinging, here are the results from the last 2 sessions. It must be said that everyone is playing very well - Sandy and Lee and consistienlty placing and Dave and Morgs are also rising fast. Jeff is still Jeff....
