I am such a donkey
Check out this terrible play I made in a headsup game. I was trying to be crafty with a trap, but I totally misread the board and it cost me, big time. The only comfort I have in this is knowing I was a 10-1 favorite on the turn..

I keep getting these sort of losses also. It's taught me to really carefully read the board and look for the straights even if they are muck hands that make them!

It was very unlucky that you didn't win that hand, but hey, these things happen.

Interesting that u post 2 hands ( also the one against the donkey with Ace high ) in which u played 2 times the same way ( raising till the end with something less than the nuts ). This hand u loose the other hand ( which has also scarecards on the board like 99 and three spades ) u won.

So what could be the conclusion? :lol:

Oh Northie, where would I be without that british charm? Oh well, at least you started reading this forum again for me.

I always read this forum. Whether there's much worth reading is another matter.
