You've got to know when to Fold 'Em
How good am I. I've read the books, played the computers, played lots of 'live' games, played heaps of Internet Poker. Not a complete muppet you might think, not complete anyway.Here I am playing on Party in a decent sized tournament, early days and I'm slightly down on my starting bank with $710 in chips.Seat 1: rabbit143 (710) .........(the muppet)Seat 2: rjbones (340)Seat 3: drewhd18 (2425)Seat 4: Bogey5800 (955)Seat 5: sdub55 (1875)Seat 6: ROCKYV65 (1325)Seat 7: walevi (915)Seat 8: MrsTax (945)Seat 9: JohnGordon13 (1320)Seat 10: menneci (1165)Dealt to rabbit143 [ Ac, Qh ]ROCKYV65 folds.walevi folds.MrsTax folds.JohnGordon13 folds.menneci calls (20)rabbit143 raises (125) to 125rjbones folds.drewhd18 raises (700) to 700Bogey5800 folds.sdub55 folds.menneci raises (1145) to 1165menneci is all-InI'm now looking at some guy with heaps of chips reraising my $125 to $700 and another reraises himself all in to $1165.As I said before I'm not a COMPLETE muppet. I understand there are better hands out there than AQos. If there's not at least an AK out there as well as a big pair, I'll be a monkeys uncle.rabbit143 folds.The original raiser drewhd18 calls the extra $465 and rolls over Ks Kc. OK I say to myself, thats what I expected.The guy who went all-in rolls over....7c 2c, work that one out. Obviously smoking the same stuff as JK and joethepeanut.Now the piece de resistance.
