BBV: Flopped Set Edition

Published by at 8:46 pm under BBV,Poker

Brag:
Flopped two sets this morning.

Beat:
Lost both with me having an underset

Variance:
I’ve flopped 10 sets so far this month and these were the first 2 I lost, but since they were big pots, I’m only up $15 on flopped set hands for the month

It was mildly amusing that they were having a conversation about deuces while I was busy trying to lose a stack with them.

I somehow managed to NOT lose a stack here by some stroke of luck. I sure as hell know I was prepared to. At least through the turn, no act of god was gonna keep me from getting every last chip of mine into the pot. The poker gods took pity on me and spared me with the scariest of scare river cards. I almost fired the last shot in on that river too, but thought, I would be better off calling a bluff since I was SO sure, I was ahead before then.

This month has been a roller coaster all month and for some reason, I just haven’t been able to get it back into the black. Probably gonna be the first month I lost money where I put in any reasonable amount of hands in well over a year if I don’t find a way to set the course straight again. What sacrificial animals do the poker gods take again anyway? I should just keep live chickens on hand.

    Ironically, the same opponent overset you both times. I can’t believe you weren’t proud to mention that.

    I saw your post on BTP and imagined you were overset here as there was little reason to post the hand other than that. Lot of action going down for such a dry board.

    Solly, less epic fail next time.

    The post on BTP has little to do with the content of the hands. Just taking some advice from GLR with posting a few of the more interesting hands in from each session to see if I can get an opinion from people on my general play.

    If you saw my second post, I posted one where I had near the nuts, but still posted it.

    TBH, I hadn’t noticed it was the same person until you mentioned it. Probably shoulda caught it but after a while, sometimes all the names just melt together. Apparently he wasn’t that noteworthy since I didn’t have any notes on him. That should make him the leader for the person I donked off the most money too though.
