PE and Me (Jude)

Ugh, I'm starting to get frustrated with my Razz results. Apparently, I'm Queen of the Bubblicious Finishes in the nightly 5.50 mtt. Tuesday I missed the money by 2 spots, tonight by 4. So sick! Just a smidgen more luck (ok maybe a little better play) and I would be 4/7 ITM in this tornament for February instead of 2/7. Blah...

Poker Enthusiast got moved to my table tonight when there were 7 or 8 other perfectly good tables for him to be moved to. I hate being at the same table with him or Surflexus! This hand proves that we surely don't soft play each other, tho...:/

I groaned when he raised me, as I did not want to play a big pot with him. I thought about reraising here to say, Hold on, PE, don't do it!, instead I did what I do best; called. HeeHaw. Just the 2 of us see 4th.

I thought this A paired him, as I didn't think he would reraise on 3rd without one. So I continued on.

I am double-freakin paired here, but I have come too far to fold now. With his up cards, I know I have the best draw.

I felt bad about busting him at first, but then I thought, Wait a minute, he was trying to bust me!! LOL So, this hand helped me to waste another hour + in the tournament before going out 16 of 90 with 12 spots paid....o joy. Perhaps if PE had won that hand instead, he may have been able to pull off a nice little cash, unlike myself. :(

I wouldn't feel bad about busting him, Jude. He basically committed Hara Kiri on the river and you were just fortunate enough to benefit from his dimentia in this hand.

I just finished a book on Razz poker called "Play Razz Poker to Win." It's on amazon, but if you'd like a free copy please let me know.


TheRazzDoctor said...

That's very generous of you, tho I suppose your offer was meant for Jude. I'm not familiar with your name, where do you usually play?

jusdealem said...

That was very generous of you, Mitchell, thanks. I'll look up the book on Amazon...and yes...I love free copies. :)

jusdealem said...

Mitchell, I left a comment on your Rules Blog. Thanks

Doc, I play on Full Tilt..won the $24 buy-in Razz event last night. Where do you play?

TheRazzDoctor said...

Hey congrats Mitchell. I play on Full Tilt (and Pokerstars too) as SGspecial. I used to play the FTP $24 buy-in tournament when time allowed, but I've graduated to the new $75 tournament they run on Tuesday nights. Hope to see you at the tables.
