Oh, woe is me. Last night at the $15-$30 table...
Sometimes things go south at the poker table.
I get dealt pocket Jacks under the gun.
I raise. Everyone folds to the big blind who reluctantly calls.
The flop is J-10-8 rainbow.
He raises and I call.
On the turn is a 2. He bets. I decide to trap and I call.
On the river is a 4. He bets. I raise.
He re-raises me!
He shows 9-7 for a straight.
A few more hands are dealt and I am not a happy camper, of course. The player who beat me on that hand now leaves the table.
Another player at the table moves into that departing player's seat and posts.
A few hands later
I get dealt pocket 3's in middle position.
5 players call pre-flop. Since 3 players already called, I decided to try to hit my set by limping.
The flop is J-7-7.
The turn is a 3, giving me a full house.
The small blind bets and everyone folds to the the player that posted. He calls.
I raise, of course. I figure if either player has a 7, he will call my raise.
Only the "poster" calls.
The river is an Ace.
He checks and I bet.
He check-raises me!
He has J-7 offsuit!
I got punished through out the night until I decided enough is enough.
