Well, that sucked.
I am so bad at poker, I can't even begin to describe it -- I went from 20k to 14k, when I had AK back to back and lost both times, back to 21k after I flopped a set of 6s against an obvious AK, on a K high flop, but I misplayed it so bad I didn't stack the guy and allowed him to get away from his hand. Shortly thereafter, I raised on the button to 900 with blinds of 100/200 after 3 people limped, included a player two to my right, also in late position. The flop was AAJ, now he checks, I now bet 1200, he makes it 2500 and I make it 7000 total, knowing that if he had any ace or JJ he would have raised coming in. Now he tanks for 2 minutes and announces all in, I fold leaving myself with 12k (still more than enough), I guess this is what happens when you assume that players will behave how you expect with certain hands, I can't believe he limped with AT in that spot, anyway. I could never really rebuild from there, I wasn't patient enough and kept going after people with hands like 7c8c and always missing, last hand was when I had about 2.1k total with blinds at 200/400 and two people limp into my bb, I look down at 88 and push, the first limper folds (horrible fold for a tiny raise) and my nemesis, the guy with AT calls with JsQs, the board is K34T9, this guy could not miss, he also took some more chips of me on a K high flop, I had K7, he had K9 and made kings up on the turn. I played pretty horribly too, so the combination of running bad didn't help. I plan to take a nice long break from poker. :( Thanks for reading..
