Beats Happen ...

Yesterday our team finished 8th/9 for the PokerRoom Team tourney. I didn't watch any of my teammates play, but from what they told me, each of the early exiters lost when they were at least 2:1 going in. AK vs AJ, KK vs A9 etc. We ended up with a 1st, 3rd, 8th, 8th, 9th for 29pts.

Good news is the teams we wanted to win, won! So right now were still at 36pts, 2nd place has 23 points, 3rd has 21 pts. The lowest we can finish is tied for 2nd, and and guaranteed $. Though anything less than 1st will be a disappointment considering the way we started.

The worst part about my KK vs. A9 was that he didn't even hit an A. If that was the case, I could've slowed down easily.

He flopped 9-2-9 after calling my UTG raise from the SB. And yes, it was a big raise.

Oy vey.

I'm out for blood tonight.

The funny thing is I got knocked out on Sunday vs the same flop. 3 players left I held Q8s in the SB. My fault I decided to limpin vs the chip leader. Flop comes Q99. I bet, he called. I bet, he raised, I said "fock", but at that points I didn't want to stick around with 1k odd chips, even though I could have made a comeback from that. I called and he turned over 9-3. Damn 9s.
