What would you do?

chimpanzee_thinkingHere is what happened earlier in the week.

I was sitting pretty as 2nd chip leader with Ace, Jack of clubs. The flop came Jack of hearts, 7 of clubs and the 2 of clubs.

The short stack made a raise all-in from the button. I thought that he maybe trying to steal the blinds and decided to call because he had been playing erratically all day and I had top pair with about 15 outs to come with any Jack, Ace or club, even if he had a hand. He showed Q,Q. Unfortunately they held up and he reduced my stack to half of it’s former glory.

The very next hand I looked down at King, King.

I shoved all in and said I was on tilt to try to encourage a call.

Another guy called immediately with Queen, Queen. Naturally a Queen came on the turn and I was left leaving the arena with my tail between my legs.

Consolation prize. I explained the situation to Chris Ferguson (Jesus) later and he said he would have played both hands the exact same way.

The annoying thing was that I could have walked away from the table and just waited to hit the money stage but then return to a tiny amount of chips. I was after the gold bracelet and $680,000 prize money.

Later, I am going to show you the winning entry ticket of this years World Series of Poker tournament as I got mine yesterday.

    Mate, I know but it is just so frustrating. In the main event, I will only be concentrating on getting to the final table. Then Julie will have to give you your passport back :)

    If you want a real beating from a couple of Queens i`m sure there are plenty of bars in Vegas that offer that particular pleasure for that particular persuasion… but you`d know all about that. Sorry for your loss, if it had been Christmas YOU would have had 3 Kings!
    Next time dude!
