Hey guys, is there anyone here bitten by this particular bug? For recreation purposes only, of course!
I won't pretend to be an expert player here and there's plenty can whoop my ass but you just got to love it for testing the gray matter while having a pretty good time too. Anyone have any great stories to tell? I'd love to hear them and maybe I'll tell some of my own too.
Like the time a few days ago when I was holding a pair of jacks with a 4, 7, and 9 different suits in the flop. There were five other guys round the table and only two folded. Tense stuff got tenser when another jack dropped at the turn. I would a felt better if someone else had folded on that round but they all stayed in. Crazy. I raised and so did they but we're talking big raises. The pot was suddenly over eight grand and I was sweating.
I know what your thinking... another jack at the river, but no, that would a been too easy, but a magicalal fairy tale story nonetheless.
No... another 4 turned up. I was sure one of the guys was sitting on a two 4s hole. I was expecting amassive raise but it didn't come, although I guess a grand is a fair size raise. No one folded so it was pretty obvious I was playing three jacks to three 9s, three 7s and maybe four 4s. Even so, at the end of the round the pot was standing at 14g when I had to make my decision.
I was on the point of folding but the devil on my shoulder said to stay in there. So I did. Glad I did too.
The guy with the 4s was actually holding 4,5 clubs and the 7 clubs in the flop meant a possible flush/straight, so he ended with three 4s. Was still a big chance except everyone else was beating him and I took the pot. Guess it was my day!
