Bad Night

Yeah, it was one of those nights.

It's one of the nights where the most important thing is that you have to keep telling yourself that it's all one big session. Life is just one big long session as well, and I think that if we all take it to heart we'll be better people in the long run. Some things can be brought to light if you look hard enough, and if you do find what it is that you were looking for then it was worth it to know that it's all one big session. Poker is the exact same way LOL!

I took some horrible beats last night form people playing tourist hands like queen-ten and king-seven. Let's just say that I had Ace-King against the guy and he hit his seven on the river. I'd be lying if I didn't say I wasn't pissed off. I clinched my fists so hard that if anything would've been in it I would've have crushed it down to the molecule. My right knuckles are skinned to the bone and I can hardly type right now because I took out my aggression on the heavy bag without ANY gloves. I just had to remind myself that it's all one session, and how you recover from tourist bad beats is what will make you a champion. People get pissed and that's just human nature. Look at Hellmuth and Matusaow. They get pissed but it's how they recover so easily is what makes them great.

After those beats I decided to play a sit and go. I stepped up to a $50 +5 which is one or two levels higher than I played but I wanted to test my recovery. Sure enough I get a real hand with ace-queen and the flop comes Q88. I raised it 3 big blinds preflop so it was tough for me to think anyone would stay on an eight. I had two guys in the pot, and one of them bet into me. I called and the other guy folded. The turn was a Jack, and the guy checked. I checked, adn the river was a two or a three. I can't remember. The guy checks and I bet, and he goes all in. Can he have an 8 and play it this way? I don't believe him and I call. He doesn't have the 8 but he has nine-ten and got his straight. I got like 100 chips left and push it on the next hand with pockets 33. The guy hits an ace and I'm done. Not five minutes after that guess who calls me? Yup Crystal.

I know some people don't like me talking about my personal life and that their here for the poker strategy. So, I won't get deep. Let's just say that the real life sucks. And this isn't Real Life Champ this is Poker Champ website LOL!!

Anyway Crystal's "man" left her and said he wasn't coming back so she calls ME to cry about it. I can't stand the woman, and the only time I talk to her is about Cody so I'm not sure why she called me. Why not call her mom and sister like she always did when we were engaged? Fucking half baked cunt, I told her to get fucked and that if my kid was in trouble to let me know. He's not, so I told her to get fucked. I'm sick of it! She needs help. Big time, and I told her that. She can't be forgiven until she forgives herself, and if she doesn't want help, she won't get it.

Anyway, like I said this isn't Real Life Champ LOL! So, the poker took a dive last night, and that usually means a big win is around the corner. Cricket tonight, and I'm going to drink the place out of Budweiser!! When your down and out nothing tastes better than a cold beer. Maybe I can talk them all into a poker game too!

May all your pots be fat and juicy like mine!!!

Play Like a Champion Today.

You should have raised on the flop with AQ instead of letting him draw...

For what it's worth:

It's gotten through my hot head that I've gone too far in my comments, and for that I apologize.

I've no right coming on your blog and ripping into you and I won't do so anymore. If people can't express themselves the way they want on the internet, they can't do it anywhere.

Check your pokerstars account- I did pay the bet, although I should have paid it sooner.

I thank you for paying the bet.
I'll look you up sometime at stars and we'll play.

Good luck, and may all of your pots be fat and juicy!!

I like Real World Champ posts. Keep them up. We all write about poker, but, as I've said, knowing about someone's daily life can give you insight into their poker game and posts.

And I have to give props to Russo for paying up and apologizing. It's way too easy to let things escalate, and much harder to take a hard look and recant or admit wrong. I'm not on either side of the issue, but I think Russo's apology shows character, as does the Champ's response.

H.O.P. nailed it.

Glad there's a truce, and an end to the flame war.

And keep the bar stories coming, Champ.
