Here's How Good I Am At Poker
After watching about 60 hours of poker the last 10 days I decided to actually PLAY a bit tonight. Signed up for Wil Wheaton's tourney and promptly donked off 1/3 of my stack calling with KQ against AK. Brilliant. I fight back to about par when this hand happens. I have the AK of diamonds and raise. PugMaggie raises all-in and I naturally call. She has pocket nines. A-racing we will go.
And the flop...is all diamonds. I flop the nut flush. Very nice, yes? Except that one of those diamonds is a nine "Uh-oh" I type in chat. The turn is the Jack of diamonds. All those light-blue diamonds...it's a very pretty board.
Right up to the point where the case nine hits.
Sigh. I'm so good at poker, so very, very good
, that it takes quads to beat me. Or, conversely, we could say that I'm so bad at poker, so very, very bad
, that I can't even win when I flop the nut flush. I'm gonna go eat a gallon of chocolate chunk ice cream and call my mommy and hope that makes everything better.
