Played in the Club Home game

I went last thursday and played in our club's local homegame. It was really nice to see the guys, and to play some live texas holdem poker for a change. There were 31 players, which is a lot more than there were the last time I played in this game!

I really did not have much in the way of hands to play most of the night, but managed to hold my own, and stay in the game for a long time. When we got down to two tables, I was pretty short, being around 2200, with blinds at 300/600. The first two hands I had once we merged were AJ and AK. I went all in on both. Called on the AJ with another AJ, and no one called the AK all in. Floated along for a while waiting for something to play, when I got A8d on the button, and since I only had 1700 left, I went all in. Picked up the blinds!

Next hand I get AA! I push all in again, of course with 2700.... the small blind who is loose, and has a big stack calls, the big blind ALSO calls, and this is for more than a third of his stack! They check it down, and the big blinds flips JTo! He hist a fucking straight on the river to take me out.... have no idea what he was thinking to call off that much of his stack with that hand....
