Played No Limit Hold’em tournament in Milford tonight. Couldn’t get anything going and wasn’t getting any cards that would stand up if I bluffed. Basically a waiting game and I lost the wait.
Blinds $600/$1200. I was in the Big Blind. For the last 1/2 hour I had been waiting for a hand to go All In. Now, I’m sitting in the Big Blind, $1200 in the pot with $2300 behind, the short stack at the table – and – I’ve got Jc 3s. Not really the hand I want to go All In with.
Seven handed at the table. Under the Gun plus One (UTG+1) calls $1200. Small Blind calls $1200. I check my option.
UTG+1 checks. Small Blind bets $1200. I rasie All In for $2300.
UTG+1 folds. Small Blind calls for another $1100.
My two pair (J 3) get counterfeited by the Ks. I have a small glimmer of hope ’cause I’ve got a J – BUT – the Small Blind has Jh 10h. The 10 plays, and I’m out!
I think I’ll go chew on sand.
