My first Riverchasers: Waffles is running hot

Playing in my 2nd Blogger tournament, was hoping to continue my beginner's luck at these things with the Riverchasers event. Played incredibly tight for the first hour but managed to chip up well... just to give up a bunch when I had to fold QQ on a rag flop. Villain was good enough to show AA. (It wasn't as difficult of a fold as it might appear, the action pre-flop screamed that I was beat.) After the first break I was moved to Waffles' table...

Full Tilt Poker Game #3067770662: Riverchasers Online Poker Tour (23242387), Table 1 - 100/200 - No Limit Hold'em - 22:32:15 ET - 2007/07/26
Seat 1: a104l9 (6,075)
Seat 2: Drizztdj (2,255)
Seat 3: Shlee1112 (4,425)
Seat 4: ScottMc (5,350)
Seat 5: JTS102 (5,025)
Seat 6: katitude (2,950)
Seat 7: RaisingCayne (2,820) (Fairly low stacked, with an incredibly tight image)
Seat 8: SirFWALGMan (12,070) (Had been running over the very tight table, and clowning on my weak-tight play in the chat box.)
Seat 9: iam23skidoo (12,310)
a104l9 posts the small blind of 100
Drizztdj posts the big blind of 200
The button is in seat #9
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to RaisingCayne [Qh Qs] (First hand better than J7o in the last five orbits)
SirFWALGMan: but i could use 24K in chips
iam23skidoo: i bet you do
Shlee1112 folds
katitude: ok which one of you fine gentlemen is going to doble me up?
ScottMc has 15 seconds left to act
ScottMc folds
katitude: double
JTS102 folds
katitude folds
RaisingCayne raises to 670 (Standard 3x+ bet preflop with the ladies.)
SirFWALGMan calls 670 (KNOWS I have a big hand, but is lookin' to either catch and stack me, or bet me off later. He's got me tagged as incredibly weak-tight, to the point where I was honestly expecting at least a call from him with ATC, if not getting my chips in preflop.)
iam23skidoo folds
a104l9 folds
Drizztdj folds
*** FLOP *** [Th 4h Ks]
iam23skidoo: no suck luck I am a rock tonight
RaisingCayne has 15 seconds left to act
RaisingCayne bets 900 (Kind of a funky bet as it effectively commits my stack and I should've just pushed the whole thing. For some reason I thought this would be enough to get him off anything lower than Tens, and if he had a King I figured I was screwed anyway.)
SirFWALGMan raises to 1,800 (Evidently he hit the flop, and wants the chips in now.)
katitude: and that is different how?
RaisingCayne raises to 2,150, and is all in (...I'm definitely seeing his cards, no real decision.)
SirFWALGMan: lol (so he was bluffing.)
SirFWALGMan: im gonna suckout on you man (he knows it...)
SirFWALGMan has 15 seconds left to act
SirFWALGMan: you know it (...and I know it)
SirFWALGMan calls 350
RaisingCayne shows [Qh Qs]
SirFWALGMan shows [3s 4s] (Yep, 34. Thought it would at least be a T or a small pair.)
*** TURN *** [Th 4h Ks] [As] (runner...)
*** RIVER *** [Th 4h Ks As] [7s] (...runner flush)
RaisingCayne shows a pair of Queens
SirFWALGMan shows a flush, Ace high
SirFWALGMan wins the pot (5,940) with a flush, Ace high
RaisingCayne stands up (and mopes)
*** SUMMARY ***
Total pot 5,940 Rake 0
Board: [Th 4h Ks As 7s]
Seat 1: a104l9 (small blind) folded before the Flop
Seat 2: Drizztdj (big blind) folded before the Flop

Seat 4: ScottMc didn't bet (folded)

Seat 9: iam23skidoo (button) didn't bet (folded)

I'm NOT trying to say anthing of the play here, as Waffles had a strong read on my weak ass, and a healthy stack that could afford to gamble. I'm just sharin' today's bad beat story. That's two out two blogger tourneys that I've been in that ended with getting knocked out by him when my chips went in ahead. I think I've found myself a blogger 'nemesis' of sorts. GG Waffles. See you finished in 5th... in the cash. Nice work. See you next time. Remember, I'm dead money...
...But I'm a talkin' donkey!

(Oh, and congrats to Drizz for taking it down... and Buddy Dank for finishing 2nd WHILE providing solid entertainment throughout!)

Your my bitch.. haha.. Always fun Cayne..

It was a bit of a fonkey move.. I felt your lead out bet was weak(Correct).. so I thought I would raise(I did) and you had enough behind to fold(You did not).. but my raise pot committed me and my bottom PAIR.. and like you said I had the chips..

The runner-runner was kind of cruel..

I actually pot committed myself with bottom pair twice last night.. once with you I was behind, and the other time I was ahead of ATo and won that pot too..

Good game man.. Brutal suckout though..

Waffles had never had a bitch, don't become his, even if he does suck out every time.

RaisingCayne said...

I suppose just two tourneys does not one bitch make. I'll do my best to keep my losing to him from becoming a recurring theme in these blogger events.

Schaubs said...

You will get yours, don't worry...

It does hurt having Wawfuls suck out though.

You actually bet the right amount with the 900 on the flop. It got him to push all in under the belief that he still had fold equity. NH, bad result.
