Today's jackass brought to you courtesy of Full Tilt Poker.
Setting: $5+.50 multi table tournament, 295 entrants
It's late in level 2. I've watched every single orbit pass through two levels without playing a single hand voluntarily. I look down to find JJ in middle position. It is folded to me, and I raise 4x the BB. Button (AllenRay4) calls me with Ax. I believe the kicker was a 9, if I'm not mistaken. No higher than nine. Can't remember if he was suited or not.
Flops comes Qxx, two clubs. (I'm holding one club). I bet out the pot. Button calls. Turn comes an Ace of clubs. I bet out half the pot, and get min-raised. I call. Jack high flush draw, pair of Jacks, why not? River comes a wonderful Jack. I push all in, button calls.
Button shows a pair of Aces. I show my trip Jacks. Button is down to 75 chips.
The following conversation ensued. No edits have been made; it's pasted as it was.
Dealer: AllenRay4 shows a pair of Aces
Dealer: phlyersphan shows three of a kind, Jacks
Dealer: phlyersphan wins the pot (2,925) with three
of a kind, Jacks
AllenRay4: $!@&in morons
AllenRay4: @$ you phlyer
phlyersphan: grow up
phlyersphan: it's five bucks
AllenRay4 (Observer): you got lucky bi+ch i dont
care about the money i care about losing to
phlyersphan: no respect for a preflop raise on the
first hand i played? i had you preflop
AllenRay4 (Observer): yea thats a good reason to
not fold even though there is a A or Q out there
you pussy. im out, have fun finishing 139th retard
Though it is still early in the tournament, my current chip position is 7th out of 135. Looks like I beat AllenRay4's prediction. I can now bust out with clear conscience.
