Luckbox JuJu Cursed Me and He Wasn't Even in the Hand
WWDN Tourney was going pretty until just about this point--some good play I think (aggressive play got my big hands paid off) mixed with significant luck (set over set against Kaellin). I had been chip leader, lost with QQ versus Wheaton's AA (should have folded it UTG) but recovered chip lead, then moved along for awhile hovering from 1-6th place with about 20 left, top 9 pay. Then it all started to go terribly wrong.
First, I got Jaxia's very short stack all-in on a coinflip against me (22 v A5, flopped 5), creating the seeds of my own destruction.
Then, we got moved to a new table with CJ immediately on my left.
Then, Jaxia managed to hit bullets the same hand some poor sap had Brokeback and suddenly has a real stack.
Then, I made a wiseass comment about Jaxia being stacked (note to self: poker gods are merciless).
Then, this happened:
Seat #1 is the button
Seat 5: Jaxia (5380 in chips)
Seat 9: SoxLover (5695 in chips)
Dealt to SoxLover [Kd Ks]
SoxLover said, "my fault for doubling you up"
SoxLover said, "now must face consequences"
Jaxia said, "you haven't met me in realy life then ;)" [response to stacked comment]
SoxLover said, "actually, i have..."
Jaxia: raises 600 to 800
fold fold fold
SoxLover: raises 800 to 1600
fold fold fold
LONG PAUSE--I thought she was going to lay it down--I sort of wanted her to and actually thought my smaller bet might have been scarier than an all in pop.
Jaxia: raises 3755 to 5355 and is all-in
SoxLover: calls 3755
Cards flip up and Jaxia shows her JJ.
*** FLOP *** [4s 9s Ac]
Then, CJ flips one little letter in the box:
Up4Poker said, "J"
*** TURN *** [4s 9s Ac] [Jh]
hoyazo said, "ooof"
SoxLover said, "frcuk" [I should have said jopke I know]
hoyazo said, "wOw"
*** RIVER *** [4s 9s Ac Jh] [Qc]
SoxLover said, "thanks cj"
Jaxia said, "YES"
Jaxia collected 11210 from pot
SoxLover said, "i blame that on you"
Up4Poker said, "sorry man"
Up4Poker said, "Jax is my girl" [Well she seemed nice enough to me, but that was cruel. I hope she busts you too....]
Next hand, Jaxia T3 in the 200 big blind called my sorry ass 290 all-in raise with KJ and beat me down with two pair.
That really lacked something. Oh yeah, being any fun at all.
I hope Jaxia wins this. See the flop...
