Living and dying by donkatude.

One a those days, huh. Well, a wiser fella than myself once said, sometimes you eat the bar and sometimes the bar, well, he eats you. - The Stranger

I had one of those games last night, some questionable moves paid off and I was in great shape down to 2 tables in the mook when this hand went down.

Here I am in the BB with twoblackaces and a chip lead. Talk about your dream scenario, then I get 2 players pushing in front of me. Yipeeeee.

Here are the results.

So there ya go, sometimes you live by the donk and sometimes you die by it.

Someone at the table suggested that hand was repayment for bad beating KK with K9. Does anyone else share the opinion that flops have a memory and likes to repay a player for inflicting a beat upon someone else??

I'll be spending another weekend at the baseball field watching the all-stars try to win their way to a State tournament. Wish us luck!

You guys be careful out there.

That's definitely the bar eating you. Pocket aces all in and 3rd place on the flop.

Oh, and RNG's do not have memories... nor do they maintain any sense of karma.

Perhaps it was the 54s beating AQ.. who knows.. All you can do is get your money in good. The rest is up to the RNG.

Nice Tourney... Almost.. ;-)
