Ace Plus King Equals Nothing

Pocket aces equal the best pocket pair and pocket deuces still equal a pair.  But Ace+King is not a pair and if the flop misses you, good luck!  Poker needs a new saying, something like this: what do you have when you are dealt an ace and a king...nothing.

Well, here are two hands where I absolutely overplayed ace-king.  I think I rather change the word overplayed in the previous sentence to stupidly played (especially on the flop).

The Heat is On!

DC temperature highs have reached 90s the past few weeks.  It was especially brutal this week since we hit 100 F.  In the summer, it is not unusual for the highs to be 90 F.  Ten more degrees is definitely too much!
