Skillz on Display

Played in the blogger skillz game. My feelings upon exit:
Bayne: I may need a ghostwritten blog post
sirfwalgman: "Motherfucking flush chasing s000ted donkey fucks"
sirfwalgman: you can use that

The hand that prompted this request:

Full Tilt Poker Game #5049007249: Blogger Skill Series (35811805), Table 5 - 200/400 - Pot Limit Hold'em - 23:28:00 ET - 2008/01/29

Jestocost calls 3,000
*** FLOP *** [3c 2d 5h]
bayne_s bets 1,534, and is all in
Jestocost calls 1,534
bayne_s shows [Jh Js]
Jestocost shows [Ac 7c]

Wow 1/3 of stack commited pre-flop with A7 suited and lacks the cajones to go ahead and raise me all in pre. WTF has to show up on the flop to fold at 6:1 odds?

sirfwalgman: but any ace any face baby

*** TURN *** [3c 2d 5h] [6c]
*** RIVER *** [3c 2d 5h 6c] [Qc]
bayne_s shows a pair of Jacks
Jestocost shows a flush, Ace high
Jestocost wins the pot (12,068) with a flush, Ace high
bayne_s stands up
*** SUMMARY ***
Total pot 12,068 Rake 0
Board: [3c 2d 5h 6c Qc]
Seat 1: jeciimd didn't bet (folded)
Seat 2: Jestocost showed [Ac 7c] and won (12,068) with a flush, Ace high
Seat 3: VinNay didn't bet (folded)
Seat 4: SirFWALGMan (button) didn't bet (folded)
Seat 5: BuddyDank (small blind) folded before the Flop
Seat 6: bayne_s (big blind) showed [Jh Js] and lost with a pair of Jacks
Seat 7: corron10 didn't bet (folded)
Seat 8: riggstad didn't bet (folded)
Seat 9: dino_burger didn't bet (folded)

Jestocost jumped to chip lead with this stellar play but somehow despite having a 2:1 edge on 2nd place with two tables left managed to ride such brilliant decision making to not cash.

Don't spend the $2 bounty all in one place.

In Bodog blogger tourney I was Final Table bubble boy when I lost a race to ScottMc's jackAce.

At least I had the pleasure of completely outplaying MiamiDon early on.

CEM raised to 70, I smooth called with my 98 sooooted and Don in the Blinds called with AA.

Flop was JT7 (1 of my suit, 2 hearts) CEM bet ~pot, I min raised and Don raised to 960. CEM folded I raised (not called raised) for 2nd time on the flop and Don was crippled.

To quote sirfwalgman: "Motherfucking flush chasing s000ted donkey fucks" of course calling 70 chips with 2k+ behind is quite different than calling off 10 BB with chance of winning 4 more with a suited tourist.

Mookie is tonight, I may just shove every frckng hand with a face or ace so I can contend

Got to love the blogger donks. That is just such a terrible play that is has to make you laugh. We can only hope he was drunk.

Corron said...

that hand was brutal...
I cant believe he played that.

Anonymous said...

Yup. If you want to call flopping a straight to crack AAs outplaying then more power to you.

Me and 200 other bloggers call it luckbox!

Jestocost said...

Hey, one donkish play and I'm branded for life.

I don't think any of you want that to be the norm.

Jacks suck anyway.

sOOted donk on sOOted donk violence. i love it!

Jestocost said...

At least I'm not the one who brought cajones in the equation. I promise to keep my cajones well covered at all times around Bayne and trust that he will extend the same courtesy to me.

Schaubs said...

Sooted cards are the nuts duh.

"jacks suck"


Once 3/4 of my stack is committed, I am getting 6:1 on remaining money after flop. Rest is going in.

Oviously I can't fold ATC pre at 6:1 but why bother to leave the option of folding on flop to yourself when you are still 15% to hit your pretty Ace on turn or river?

Jestocost said...

"jacks suck"

That would have been a joke. But they do anyway.

As to why leave myself the option to fold? I was distracted and not paying attention to my stack size and what I had left for a moment.

There was no great strategic objective or any fundamental misunderstanding on my part. I haven't once tried to portray it as anything but plain old donkishness, as when I described it as a "donkish play" (see first comment above) and as "a major suckout" see http://slagpile.blogspot.com).

Is there some point about which you think we have some disagreement over the play of the hand?
