Bitchslapped

"Look, defenseless babies!" - Erwin Fletcher - Fletch

You know how I was saying I love short handed tables because you'll find people who will put their money in there with terrible hands? It's great fun, but I think I'm going to avoid entire tables of them. Here's a little background. I sit down and do my typical tight thing until I figure out what these people are all about. After two orbits, I'm seeing an AVERAGE VP$IP of over 80%. I can't make this stuff up. So, I get ready to start punishing these guys...

Riiiiiiight.

Nothing like getting hammered by someone who defends the friggin HAMMER to a raise.

So, I'm stinging from this, but hey, shit happens and my toes are still tappin'. A few hands later this unfolds.

What the fuck? That's twice now in short order. I have to admit to a little raised blood pressure now. I'm still okay, though... I've pulled the occasional small pot to keep the damage to a minimum. After a few more hands I look down and see KK again.

Wooot! Not only did I lose, I lost TWICE! I ran like a sissy from that table and headed for greener pastures.

Even given the hideous suckouts going on at that table, I was still able to post a nice $43 profit for the day, so I'm certainly not one to complain.

Okay, I have to go work some bonus dollars at work today. Not by choice, believe me. I will get that "month in review" post up here in the next week or so...
