Tired... but I just have to post this hand

Trapaments gone wrong.

I'm super tired right now, it's 3:30am here but I feel the need to brag a little after I loled really hard on the turn and into the next orbit. 50nl 6max deep effective stacks. This guy is running 58/40 with 15% 3bet and I've just been waiting to pounce (again). I'm obviously going for a flop c/r with the intention of getting it in on the flop. He decides to get trappy instead.

  1. I find it hilarious when the guys with images that would allow them to get paid off with monsters consistently avoid using it, and vice versa.

    It's hands like this that remind me I don't need to be "good" at poker, just better than the idiots.
