Cool Hands no Luck!!

Just in from the tourney in Cool Hand Lukes where I believe I played what I think to be the perfect poker all night.... I built my stack well without ever putting it in danger and got my money in good everytime.... NOT EVEN ONCE was I behind!!! Made some great plays taking guys off top pair with ease and favourite hand of the night was a hand with Harry Potter... he limps... I raise to 500 with K7 off and he limp/raises to 1200 i call... he checks a Q73 flop and I lead for 1200 he makes 3.5 K... I push for 4.5 K and he folds for the extra 1k.... Like that one......

Anyway story is the usual stuff,,, I get to the final table with Vera Duffy to my left and Goodlucktome at the opposite end of the table..... I think I'm chip leader with about 30k or so... maybe harry potter covered me but that was all..... unknown guy makes it 2.5 k to go. I make it 10k with KK and he insta pushes for 20k with JJ and rivers a J!!!! then I go into push mode with my final 10k and get it back to about 15k stealing blinds and then get my AQ AIPF against AJ and the J on the board does me again and I'm home on the bubble...... I then played an hour of that sick game called yamaha or omaha or outdrawaha or whatever they call that version of poker where nobody ever folds in a round of each game???? and I leave that after an hour a little down after I had built my stack nicely to nearly double and then get it AIPF in holdem with AKs against AQo and of course the flopped Q halfves my stack for me.......

I'm really due a good tourney run sometime but I find it much harder then the cash games to deal with... In the cash games because I'm bankrolled for my level I just reload and get back my money... In the tourney I leave and watch the guy who just played his hands terribly take my chips and go on to cash nicely...... tough!!!

As garry said yesterday... It's my blog and I'll whinge if I want to....

jus reminded me..... whats the difference between a dog and a poker player? ..... a dog stops whining after about 12 years or so!!

I'll try and make a post tomorrow if I can... Gl at the tables everyone... looking forwars to the IPO :)

Unlucky last night Mac, i played pretty well i thought too but i just ran into some sick hands. Folded a house to a check raise on the river of JJ4J6 when i had 96, Rita has 67!
You did get luck with the KT v AQ last week though! also your push in my opinion with the K7 was pretty bad!you should have no FE at all. stick it on boards.

He noelle? where were you sitting remind me? I was 100% sure I was ahead with the K7... no doubt in the world... lol last week I did get lucky alright with the K10 but it was for my last little 3 k or something if I remember rightly and any two pretty cards were "the nuts" at that stage
