As I'm writing this poker session recap, I'm also watching the movie The Boys From Brazil for the first time.
My last session started off with a crippling hand:
I lost the rest in a three-way all-in pot where I'm holding an open-ended straight draw and a hearts flush draw. One guy had J-J and the other guy had a pair with a hearts nut flush draw. I didn't hit one of my 6 outs and decided to switch tables after the hand.
I settled into seat 6 at the new table. For two hours I couldn't get anything going. My stack slowly dwindled down to $67 but then:
Then I picked up J-J and bet $12 pre-flop. I got three callers and we saw a 10♥-5♠-4♠ flop. I bet $22 and only seat 8 called. The turn was a 4♦, I bet $40, and he called. The river was a Q♣ and I bet $40 again. He called. I showed the winner and was up to $305.
In the last hand of importance, I was dealt A♥-8♥:
I left few orbits later. From $67 all the way back up to $567!
