Level Zero Thinking On Holiday

The year got off to a pretty good start poker-wise. Eventually. I needed to play for a while to get into any kind of groove and I needed to dig myself out of a bit of a hole after the same shortstacker got me twice - he doubled through me when his KTo was >>> AKo, then doubled again with ATo >>> QQ. I really want to know what the deal is with ATo. These guys play it like it is the stone cold nuts.

I had pretty much clawed my way back to even when I went on a heater. As with all good heaters, it started with one really stupid decision from an opponent:

Full-Tilt Converter Tool from

Hero (SB) (174.85)
BB (97.65)

Preflop: Hero is SB with 7, 6

1 fold, UTG+1 calls 1, 1 fold, MP2 calls 1, 2 folds, Hero calls 0.50, BB checks

Flop: (4) J, 5, 4 (4 players)

Hero bets 1, BB calls 1, 1 fold, MP2 calls 1

Turn: (7) 3 (3 players)

Hero bets 3, BB calls 3, 1 fold

River: (13) 2 (2 players)
Hmmm. What should I do in this spot Poker King Santa?

Good advice Poker King Santa, I think I'll do that ...
River: (13) 2 (2 players)

Hero bets 169.85 (All-In), BB calls 92.65 (All-In)

Total pot: 198.30 | Rake: 3


Hero had 7, 6 (straight, seven high).

BB had A, 5 (straight, five high).

Outcome: Hero won 195.30
Additional outcome: Hero LOL'd. Thank you opponent, one bad decision from you and this session is in the black. Things heated up from there, a couple big hands held and I picked off a couple shorties with better hands.

Anyhow, things are off to a good start. I can't say the same about my blogging - really, I had visions of getting things going on a different foot this year with a quality post, but c'est la vie I guess. It'll probably be another year of tilt, bad beat stories, stupid brags and precious little worth reading.
