So the wife is out with friends and I am home watching the boy. He finally gave it up and went to sleep. Time for a little SNG action. The maniac at my table is playing any two and is also catching. He proceeds to knock out 2-3 players and run his stack up to T8,000. I see how he is playing and lay in wait.
Finally we cut it down to the final three. Me, the maniac and an okay #3. I proceed to double twice and and take the chip lead. This is after watching the maniac double up #3, twice. Two hands after taking the chip lead (by about T1000), I catch AA in the big blind. I get into a raise war pre-flop with the bozo and get him all-in. He has K7s.
Flop comes out K7x. Bang Bang I'm #3. I bust out a few hands later.
I don't care about the bad beat. I mean come on AA gets cracked all the time. But this is what he said as the flop hit the board:
"PokerStars owed me that"
Why? Because your top pair keeps getting beat by TPTK? I don't know why but this just rubbed me the wrong way. Usually I am entertained by the chat, especially the stupid chat.
Not too bad for my first online poker since being in San Fran back in May, about 1 month ago. Except that I am down 1/2 a buy in in my online ring game.
