Who's Your Donkey?

One of the things I enjoy about playing blogger events is the banter. That includes being called a donkey (or worse) from time to time. Now that I have my donkey card for the next year and a half -- thanks, Chilly! -- here's one for you:

In the DADI last night, I got mixed up in a hand with Fuel55, who I don't remember playing with previously.

Here's his version of the hand:

A8s in position - A34 rainbow flop, on_thg puts in a continuation bet and I put him all in. vs on_thg calls with A9. Horrible call and he knows it, but enough to win the hand.

Here's the actual hand history -- I'm deliberately forgoing using a hand converter:

PokerStars Game #5094934690: Tournament #24856362, $10+$1 Hold'em Pot

Now answer me this: Who's the bigger donkey?

Edit 5/31/06:

By the way, that's a rhetorical question. Here's a revised description of the action from Fuel55 (hope it's okay that I post this):

A8s in position - A34 rainbow flop, on_thg puts in a continuation bet (or least that is what I believe given that he bets most flops from what I have observed) and I put him all in given that he could have any pair from KK down to 55 or a whack of other hands that my A8 is ahead of. on_thg calls with A9. Over the long term this is a -EV call. I called it a horrible call at the time (but, as CJ has pointed out, the correct call this time) and he has enough to win the hand.

Poker. What a game.

Definately Fuel55, who I have to wonder if he actually wins at poker. One interesting thing I find about him is that he does post hands he plays horribly on his blog and then proclaims how brilliant he is. That is worth something I suppose.

Don't worry Mike, you'll always be my donkey.

Fuel55 said...

I love Wes. He has outed me as the losing ABC poker player that I am. No tertiary thinking from me - that's for sure.

Where's StB with the donkey song?

Fuel55 said...

All the credit for building relationships and setting the world on a straighter course goes to CJ. Without him all of this would never have happened.

(Aside: I still don't forgive him have AA in the BB in the big FT tourney 8 months ago when I came a stealin' from the SB ...)
