Sorry 'bout that little outburst earlier. That was just the beginning of one of those days where everything that could go wrong, did. You know... first the 'net problems, then I did a load of laundry and forgot to add detergent - only realizing it after the load was done, then the pizza guy brought me the wrong order, then the light bulb blew in the ceiling lamp in the living room (of course I'm out of light bulbs).....

But, my internet connection seems to have stablized, so I thought I'd get in a SnG before bed. Nice - a $20+2 was almost full. I registered and waited.

A few hands in, I run into this:

Dealer: phlyersphan posts the small blind of 25
Dealer: a posts the big blind of 50
Dealer: You have been dealt [Qc Jd]
Dealer: b folds
Dealer: c folds
Dealer: JayBizzle raises to 100
Dealer: e folds
Dealer: f folds
Dealer: g folds
Dealer: h folds
Dealer: phlyersphan calls 75
Dealer: a calls 50
Dealer: The flop is [7s Js 2h]
Dealer: phlyersphan checks
Dealer: a checks
Dealer: JayBizzle bets 300
Dealer: phlyersphan calls 300
Dealer: a folds
Dealer: The turn is [2d]
Dealer: phlyersphan checks
Dealer: JayBizzle bets 900
Dealer: phlyersphan calls 805, and is all in
Dealer: JayBizzle shows [2c 7h]
Dealer: phlyersphan shows [Qc Jd]
Dealer: Uncalled bet of 95 returned to JayBizzle
Dealer: The river is [Qd]
Dealer: JayBizzle shows a full house, Twos full of
Dealer: phlyersphan shows two pair, Queens and
Dealer: JayBizzle wins the pot (2,510) with a full
house, Twos full of Sevens
Dealer: phlyersphan stands up
I deserve it for the lame-ass weak check-call play, but if that's not a sign that I should log off RIGHT NOW, I don't know what is! I asked the guy if he was a blogger/reader perchance, and he said "naw, I just stayed in for fun." I said, "but, you raised pre-flop?" No response....

Ahhhh gotta love it. Time for anything but poker.... g'nite!

    Hammer is Power! Lol. LMAO! I dunno about playing QJ to a raise. Maybe. Then he bets hard and you call. Umm... ok. Anyway, 72o > QJ this time.

    To a known blind stealer, I'll defend high cards to a min-raise. I totally should have let it go after that though :) If I *really* thought my hand was good, I should have been the aggressor... so I really didn't think my hand was good after the flop, but it was one of those "there's no way those cards helped him, if he RAISED preflop..." Shoulda let it go. But it made for a good hand history at least!

    Not that my experience is great or anything, because it isn't, but I will throw lots of chips post flop with top pair. Just a thought...
    even with the pre-flop raise, he might have 'only' had AK, and with you throwing chips at top pair, lots of them, really makes him pause.

    Just remember what Phil Hellmuth said - if it wasn't for blind luck, he would win every hand!
