So I find myself in middle position with pocket 3′s…
You wouldn’t know it, but I’ve been dealt pocket pairs approximately 20 times this evening. Statisticiamagicians would tell you that I should have flopped trips at least once by now, nearing my second set of flopped trips any time soon. Unfortunately, I haven’t flopped trips yet and my M is getting dangerously low.
To my left is a donkey. Glasses, poker t-shirt, and extremely fantastical attitude about how good he really is. Which isn’t very good, or well, if you ask me because I’m goot at english.
The girl to my right has left repeatedly to hit the bathroom for blow. She has that hardened, spent body of a former stripper look. She has a skeevy white dude railbirding her and it’s obvious he’s hoping she pulls some big pots and takes him back to the room for sloppy sex and huggling.
The rest of the bunch is a smattering of your typical 2007 poker player types. Internet pro, table captain, almost hot chick who needs to lose 20lbs and get a nose job, old bitter Asian lady, and aromatic (in a bad way) loser who no doubt whacks it to animal porn.
I can beat these people.
I’ve done the math.
Early position raises the table norm, popping the 100/200 level blinds to T650. I’ve seen this play before from OBAL (Old Bitter Asian Lady) and I’m not falling for it again. The last two times she popped it from early position I had noticed that it followed a brutal loss. She played these hands very aggressive and it was quite obvious to me that it was a steam play more than a situation where she had a great hand. I was hoping to catch her and snap her off. SNAP, SNAP!!!
Though I’m low at this point, I’m not low enough that I have to push. I’m getting close but I’ve been waiting for this chance all night and I think I can double up against her with the right flop.
Flop comes 3d 4d 5d.
It figures I land a flop like this. I’ve been bitching and moaning all night about my pocket pairs not tripping, and here Jesus finally lets me trip up and it’s the worst kind of flop you could imagine. I need to go to church more often.
I’ll tell you that the mobney got all-in at this point, and that the turn and river were the 8d and the 9s, but why don’t you tell me what you think OBAL had?
Winner gets a hearty congrats on being so smart.
