Subject:The hand I busted on
Time:02:18 pm
The table was quite soft and fairly predictable, although one or two of the players seemed dangerous and another seemed to be at least a little bit creative. Blinds are 25-50, and most players are moderately close to their starting stacks, although the woman on my left has been steadily hosing off chips.

I raise to 150 second UTG with black jacks. Hoser on my left calls, as does the big blind.

The flop is Kh Jh 8c. I bet 500 (a hair over the size of the pot), hoser folds, and the big blind calls.

The turn is the 4h. The BB thinks for a few seconds and bets 800. I have a total of 1100 left. I think for a little bit and decide that she might do that on a king or a pair with a heart and push my chips in. She calls, and turns over 82h. The river fails to pair the board, and I get to pay about $25/minute for my tournament.

The argument for folding the hand on the turn is that the table is extremely soft. Other than that, I don't see any way to let it go.

Sorry to hear you had an early exit this year Patti. Any chance of doing any of the other events? Did Alan get any media attention with his new duds?

Bummer. Looks like sabyl busted too and jnalabusted before it began. Do you know if Brenda Mowrey (BARGE virgin last year, part of my CHORSE team) is still alive?

I'm not sure I'd even recognize her, but I have no idea. I was out of the room and in the car by 12:45.

Patti this just sounds like bad luck on hand that is hard to lay down after the flop.
