  • thought I'd given blind stealer his just deserts...

    So.. Context first, the villain sitting directly to my right had been raising allin every.. single... hand... when he was in the SB and I was BB for the last 10 rounds or so... It had just so happened that every time we'd been in this situation, it had either folded round to him, or there had been a solitary limper. Sure enough, every single time this had happened I had been dealt complete junk and folded. Stack sizes had stayed roughly around the levels you see in the hand below.
    About 2 orbits before the hand below took place, I actually typed in the chat box, "you know, sooner or later I'm going to wake up with a hand in this position, and you'll be screwed" no response, and received the exact same betting pattern (and junk cards for me)

    Then this hand comes along.. I get dealt JJ in the BB pray that no one raises and there aren't any limpers as the action moves round... Then it's on him, there's a long pause... and then, sure enough, the allin shove. I instacall, and he of course he turns over junk, 96s.. I'm jumping for joy... and then the board cards come out....

    Currently I have worked my way back up to 7800 chips and am 7 of 9, villain has managed to knock some people out and climbed to 20,000 chips and is in 3rd.. Still hoping I can finish ahead of him though.

    actually he just called an allin with KJ and lost to trip Queens, he's down to 14000 now.. hahaha.. Finishing ahead is in my reach

    final table now, and villain is still pulling the exact same trick on guy sat to his left.. So far he's been lucky.. only a matter of time though


    • #3

      He tried the same trick again... shoved A5o, got called by BB with AT

      He went out in 4th..

      I'm now second. Big stack has over twice mine though so taking it down could be tricky

        Finished 1st.. Turned out the chip leader couldn't handle aggression heads up. Even so was a bit sketchy and won with a silly risky play... I 3 bet allin with KT and he showed AJ, luckily K hit and nothing else
