Bad Karma... Part 2... and Part 3

I am hopeful that this won't become like the "presto is gold" series... but I guess for a short while, it could be entertaining... for the readers... and for the sick bastards that like to see me lose...

Note: Same table, 3 minutes later... and this is not a bad beat. This was just poor play cause by the above two beats and me being tentative... but at this point, my demise at this table was starting to become comical... At this point, bad karma was toying with me...

This is the Part 3 portion of this post. (yeah, the above 3 hands were just Bad Kharma Part 2). I was trying real hard not to tilt... obviously the pocket 8s hand above, I was tilting but I was passively tilting... not uber aggressive tilting. Thanks god for that.

And the only reason the one below is Part 3 is because since it happened at a different table, surely it qualifies as part 3.

Alright, before any of you write me about how I misplayed the hand, etc, I don't want to hear it unless you have something constructive to say. To say that I should have just called the raise on the flop to see what happened on the river would be fine but I don't agree. Folding on the flop is out of question against a guy I pegged as uberaggressive. I mean if you're folding QQ in that situation against that opponent, then that's your style but that's ridiculous. He would have done that with A9, J-10, 6-7... I've seen him do that on numerous occasions. So, I had to push. What about calling and seeing what the turn brings? If I call, I have less than $50 behind me. At that point, I'm pot committed. What am I folding my QQ cuz I don't want to throw my last $50 into a $250 pot? That's just a very weakish play. I'd rather put all my money in with the best of it. In the past, I probably would have just called the flop and played a small pot. But I'm experimenting with being aggressive myself and these are instances where I believe in putting all my money in the middle. Admittedly, he had a lot more cards he was drawing to than I expected so it so I'm not saying that that was a total bad beat... but typical of how my night was going.

All told, last night, I lost like $300... so gross. All at 1-2NL 6 max. Funny thing is, that's like actually damage control. At one point, I was down like $500. But the same uberaggressive villain above who after that hand had around $650 by the end of the night (or by the time I left the table at 2am) was down to $150. I got some of my portion back.

I hope this series ends here... if not, you can all look forward to another edition of Bad Karma series...
