Murphy's Law - I hate poker

Murphy's Law. If anything CAN go wrong, it WILL go wrong. Generally a maxim reserved for those with a highly pessimistic view on life, and everything in general. But last night, Murphy's Law existed, and it was out to steal all my money.

I start my session off very normally, like I always do: buying my chips, assessing weak/strong players at the table, etc, etc, and NOTHING out of the ordinary happen in the first hour of play. Then the shit storm began, it was first through a set over set encounter, a rarity, but hey shit happens every so often right? The very next hand, another set over set encounter. A few hands later KK vs AA against a VERY loose player. Cooler after cooler. Beat after beat. There were much more terrible things that happened, but if I were to remember any of them I'd probably blow up.

Murphy's Law. Some people choose just not to believe in it, until it suddenly happens to meet them and bite them in the ass. There'll be better days for sure, but to get there we have to deal with all the shitty ones first.

  19. dude, tell me about it. I was up about 300$ in a day (to give perspective I was playing 3/5 limit 7 card stud) and I lost it all in holdem in a few hands. Lost a straight to a flush. A flush to a better flush. A full house to a better full house. I'm not kidding, it was enough to make me quit for months (and I did)

  20. The World Series of Poker is going to be kicking off very soon and once again I am excited that I will be able to make the trek back down to Las Vegas for at least a week to partake in as much of the annual festivities as possible. My birthday falls towards the end of June, which provides a perfect opportunity to visit the WSOP during the height of most of the big events, which is good for when I want to both gawk at pros and then hit up the tables myself.
