I think I need to make several adjustments…. like avoiding Blackjack.

The hand that really pissed me off, and should’ve sent me home: I was raising roughly 70% of the hands pre, opened for $20 at the $2/$5 NL at the Venetian after a couple of people limped.

Flop came out QsJc4s, and player A lead $75 into $100. Player B called cold, I raised to $275. Player A folds, Player B calls.

At this point, I should’ve realized that if player B had KsTs or a similar SD/FD combo, he’d’ve gotten it all in right there. This is where I should’ve realized he had a made hand and played the turn differently.

QsJc4s, red 5. He checks. I play with my stack, push half of it into the pot. He asks how much, I say, “roughly $430.” Dealer, Patti, counts it down, it’s $435. He asks how much I have left. I reply, “$435.” He’s momentarily perplexed, then realizes I bet half my stack. I was about to tell him that there’s $725 in the middle plus my $435 bet, but then I realized that’d be a really dumb idea, ’cause if he had any draw then he should call.

I keep my mouth shut, he finally folds. FUCK!

He and player A spend the next 40 minutes asking me what I had, I don’t tell, but learn that they both claim to have had TPTK, AQ.

I think my play was to bet about half pot on the turn, and let him c/rai… so I can insta-call, and learn that he’s drawing dead.

Fuck fuck fuck.

Moral of the story, if you tilt-off some chips in one hand, you’ll make a lot more money standing up and walking away, maybe even picking up your chips, then you ever could staying at that table and trying to play well when everyone present has seen your donkerific tendencies. I’m in fucking Las Vegas, why am I not changing tables?

Book-keeping complete, blog posted, time to get a shower and try to make $20.

That’s another thing, early in the night, I had first sat down with a rack o’ red and doubled through. I sh/c/would’ve just gotten up with a $500 profit, but no, wanted it to swing about $4K in the other direction.

Live and learn. Hopefully.
