I suppose part of getting lucky in poker is playing horribly and not losing. At least not too much.

Tonight, I sucked out on Wes all in pre-flop with AK vs KK. Not one of my prouder moments.

Then, I mis-read the board thinking I had a double belly-buster straight draw against G-Rob. In reality, I had a gut shot. Sadly, I hit. Then I rubbed it in. Mainly because G-Rob would have done so against me. But still, that's no excuse.

What's even worse is then finishing down for the evening $113. Really, it's a small loss. But given how absolutely horribly I played, it's a blessing.

So let me say this. Publicly.

Glad I could host.

Glad Drizz had a good time.

Sorry for sucking out Wes and G-Rob. I played bad, knew it, and still continued.

It's a good wake up call for me. Don't drink and play. At least too much.

Embarrassed am I.

If you are going to get wrecked and splash a few $$ around, it's better to do it with friends than strangers.

Good to see you again. I think your performance was revenge of the poker gods for taunting. Note G-Rob's results after mercilessly taunting Otis?

Of course, I played horrible as well, and sucked out on TeamScottSmith to get back to even. See you soon.

And tell miniblood to sharpen up his Guitar Hero skillz for a re-match :)

"Don't drink and play. At least too much." LOL...This is so true! :-)..Love to take few beers while playing online poker, but more than that will be advantage for my opponents :-)

Damage control is always important, so yes in that respect not losing too much when playing bad is indeed a blessing. Just make sure you don't play that bad all the time....
