But I'm not gonna hold my breath on that one.
I was playing in a freeroll tournament online, and we were in the 4th level. Blinds were 50/100 and I was the small blind.
I got A 4c. The 2 players in early position folded, the next guy called, 1 more folded the next guy called and the dealer folded. I completed, then the BB raised it 200. It was called around and we went to a 4 way flop.
The flop came 4h 4d Jd, giving me a very sneaky set with an ace kicker. I checked, BB bet out 1000. Middle caller folded, late player and I both called. I was thinking that BB may have had jacks for a higher set, given the pre-flop raise.
The turn came Ad, giving me a full house fours full of aces, and putting a possible flush on the board.
I saw dollar signs, baby!
Meanwhile, BB had the late guy on tilt from an earlier beat, so I was counting on that distraction to help me disguise my monster.
I checked, BB checked, and late man went all in declaring he had trips. Since he was on tilt, I figured he was telling the truth, and he had the other 4. I called, putting me all in as did the BB, who had us both covered. BB had KcKd giving him 2 pair and 4 to a flush, both hands I had beat. Late man had 3 fours and that was it. If he caught an ace, we would chop. BB needed a K to beat me on the river.
HE CAUGHT THE %^*(&^$%$!!
I'm not very happy right now, but I did manage not to throw my laptop across the room, so if you think about it, in a way, I'm up about 800 bucks.

It'll be OK.
(Does that translate to English? Because I have not the bloodiest clue what that was all about, except that it almost resulted in the demise of a laptop ... )
Oh ... when's the next partay? And can it be a tad to the west, and in a more family-friendly environment? (Cathy made me ask that, and said to bat my eyelashes when I did)
I would love to get together with folks sometime...and west is better for me too! I hope I can finally make one of these Knoxville blogger get-togethers. If only so that LissaKay can bat her eyes at me, too
Ah well, like they say, unlucky with cards, lucky in love.
And I don't want to hear it. Last night, i get pocket kings. Raise blind X 6. To me left, raise. To his left, all in. If you won't go all in pre-flop with KK, you won't ever. I call. Guy to my left calls. $90ish in the pot. Both have pocket aces.
They say to me 'look on the bright side, neither of us can improve.'
