  • AC Trip Report

    Went up early Friday morning, got checked into suite that a buddy had arranged (his wife has a casino host assigned, so all was comped-room, meals, etc). Showboat

    Down to the Showboat cardroom and signup for the 11am NL tournament (about 65 players @ $50 + $15), paying top 6.

    10,000 chips, 50/100 starting blinds, 20 min rounds, no antes.

    I went out around the 2 hour mark, nothing earth shattering, pocket Kings went down to pocket tens when a ten (like a groundhog), showed his head on the river (indicating 6 more weeks of suckouts).

    My buddy Jim left the tournament in another 30 minutes to join me at the ring table as my son Chris continued to the final table. He bubbled at 7, where they all gave him $10 each to make the bubble guy get at least their buy in back. He lost AK to KT when his opponent, also short stacked, caught a groundhog Ten on the river, whatelse.

    Oh, I digress. Before the tournament, we got in 45 minutes of 1/2 nl where the play is sloppy, loose, just what everyone posts they hate at a table, that I prefer LIVE.

    Best hand: SB I pick up two black 4's, everyone limps in. I just ask the Poker Gods for one red 4 and let me do some damage with my $187 (sat with $200).

    Flop is Kd 4d 4h

    Are you ******* me! I check faster than my first attempt at sex, and my opponent in seat 4 makes it $50 to go with his King. Everyone folds to me and I (eventually call).

    The turn is the Qd and I check, he fires in $135 and I raise with my remaining chips and he beats me in the pot.... lol

    River is a blank and I say, I hope you can beat me (badbeat is $42k), but when he sees the quads he mucks his hand without hesitation and storms out of the room muttering (who knows, might be "freakin random generater my (_!_)!

    Off to lose in tournament.

    After lunch, went to Taj, got on 1/2 and 2/5 nl list, but new 1/2 table opened. Jim and I got seats at opposite ends. I took one look at the opponents and I knew instantly, this was a great looking table. There were folks just off the Friday bus to AC and some young blackjack and craps players sitting with their POKER friends to socialize.

    I win a few early hands and turn $300 into $385.

    Ten minutes in I pick up 55 in the sb. Everyone limps and the flop comes Ks Js 5d.

    I check, the bb makes it $25 and seat 5 calls $25. I make $125 and before I can finish counting out my chips in stacks of 5, he goes all in for $375+. I look around the dealer (I'm in seat 10, he's in seat 1) to see how much he had and his face, when I here seat 5 say: "I raise and shoves in what appears to be 4 stacks of red and more, about $450.

    Well, isn't that lovely..... I say: "I guess I have to call, with a smile."

    Now here's the best part. Well, nearly the best part, there are three or four best parts.

    I have put one player on KJ, the other on spade draw or open end, QT.

    The Big Blind turns over KJ, two pair, no spades.

    Seat 5 turns over KJ, two pair, no spades.

    I flip up my pocket pair of 5's and growns (except from Jim, who is just laughing his (_!_) off!

    The happens to be a "5" who needs it. lol, and the river a blank.

    It took me three hands to stack the chips.

    Won the next three consecutive hands, players went gun shy, I ran over the table in two of the hands and then I pick up AA and one opponent raises $10 and I bet $100 back at him, and he says to me, not this time buddy, and puts his remaining $80 in the pot.

    Once the hand was over, he said, and quote: "You lucky B-stard, how come your Aces beat my Queens, that is just wrong."

    I agreed and told him I would think my luck was about to change, stick around and take as much as you want, but he wasn't sticking around Atlantic City I imagine.

    Now I sent 4 of my prime targets to the ropes and they left, the table changed, the cards stopped coming, I cashed out the three racks of red and went for dessert (ice cream). Jim took his $400 worth of winning shortly after and we went to the 2/5 nl tables.

    Jim took down a great pot from a chip leader for $780ish, but other than that, nothing memorable, up and down, broke about even there.

    Crashed late, up early for a quick two hours in the Showboat poker room, just a few bucks from some sleepy fellas from the previous day still playing, but left in great shape for the two home games last nite at my house.

    Jim won both games there also, while I managed only a second place and first out (flush over flush, mine was so good looking, but so second best).. Now, my son will tell me for the rest of my life how he claimed the bounty on me at home. Dang!

        Al, you need to schedule an appointment with the family doctor. I'm sure your face is black & blue from being smacked in the face by the deck.
