So frustrating. This time I got leads at all 4 tables in a set. Huge leads on some - one table I had AA and tripled up like the 3rd hand, had 2500 chips. At one point, I think I had 2200, 2050, 1900, and 1050. I busted out on ALL FOUR TABLES. Argh. The worst beat was getting all-in pf with 99 v 55, and having him catch a 5 on the river. Every hand was brutal. One I definitely screwed up, the other I sort of screwed up, and the last one I just got screwed.
On one, I completed in the SB with A6o, flop AKQ. I led for 225 (1/4 my stack), and someone pushed. I should have folded, and that was the most obvious screwup, I think. That board is scaryville. He had JT. Shafted. (No runner, runner full houses for me like the AQ guy)
On another, I called a fairly large raise with AKo. Flop AK5, 2 clubs. (I have no clubs). Pot is 575 and I lead 225. That's a big mistake, I think in retrospect. He calls. Turn 4c. I am nervous. I did not stop to think enough, and that was a mistake. I started this hand with 1525, and this was the only player who had me covered, with 2255. On the turn, I bet 425 and he minraises. Second mistake, because I probably should have mucked right there. But... top 2 pair... and I know he doesn't have 23/44/55. AA and KK are possible but only remotely so. After all, I have an A, and K and they're both out. That'd mean all 4 got out, and that's tough to believe. But why the minraise? I called pf and led the flop. But it's so hard to put someone on the nut hand - I know many players will raise there with AJ/AT/Ax, especially with the naked Ac. Damnit. So I moved in, he called. AcQc. The nuts. No A or K on the river for me.
Sigh. The last hand was a weird bubble hand, not too interesting. I completed in the SB after a limper with K7o and a K came. The rest after that was probably foreordained, but it pisses me off because I was the 3rd stack, and there was one short stack hanging on playing for 3rd. And he got it.
