Lucky number 7
Fold to the Ace, right?
Straight flush…… folded.
Worse, I noticed the straight flush AS I WAS CLICKING to fold.
Today I folded quads twice! It was in pot limit Omaha 8b and I was dealt 77xx, no low draw. Easy fold. Quads on the flop! Then it happened again, 77xx no low draw. Fold. Quads on the turn!
The third time I received 77 I played them (I couldn’t help myself!!!) with no low, AND IT HAPPENED AGAIN! Quads on the turn!
What are the odds of quad sevens three times in one session?
I must be living right.
The poker Gods smiled on me again last night as I raked in almost 30 big bets in less than 15 minutes playing limit O8b.
In the big blind I limped in with KQxx. The flop is 10J4 rainbow. I bet my draw and get two callers. The turn is the 9, giving me the nuts. I bet and get raised. I re-raise and get called. Meanwhile there is a player caught in between along for the ride. The river is a 3, which HAS to be a total blank. I bet the nuts again and get raised. The player in between calls.
At this point I have to be splitting the pot, right? Who would raise here? I re-raise and watch as both caller’s hands disappear (I love that part) and the pot slides to me. 89 for the loser’s straight along for the ride and a set of 4’s RAISING all the way!
Gotta love it!
Three hands later I three-quarter a pot with the low raising into my nut flush, nut low hand.
Praise be the poker Gods!
