A Big Big Game



Nothing spectacular but it's a start. Folded for two hours, doubled a couple times, and got up to 30th or so with 80 left. I tried to steal from the hijack with J9 sooted and was cold called from some donkey on the button. Flop came Jxx I jam he calls and turns over...thats right the all mighty KJ and I'm crippled. I linger for a while and finally jam K6 into BBs AQ. Seriously though, how the fuck does anyone cold call with KJo? I've seen a bunch of you bloggers do it so maybe one of you can explain the reasoning here because I'm totally baffled.

This should be a great weekend of live cash game action. Today I'm heading down to the Bellagio fairly early in hopes for a couple racks and tomorrow will be spent at MGM which usually rocks all day on Saturday. Sunday will be an online day trying to get some MTTs dollars and Sunday night will be the greatest blogger game of them all, the Big Game.

58 players for a $4000 prize pool and 73 players for a $5000 prize pool. Get those tokens and if not just buy straight in. No way anyone should miss out on what will be the biggest blogger prize in history.

King Jackoff cold calling is suprising but not unseen in online play. The all in call with TPanykicker makes me laugh. You should know by now that online donkeys are all in with TPanykicker.

Kill the cash games this weekend. Stay patient.
And thanks for the shoutout!

Obviously he reads your blog and knew that KJo was gold against anything you had.

Stack size is also a consideration.

Or just that us donkeys love us the KJo! I mean... it's awesome. It's like... 60% against any random two cards. So what if it's a dog against anything someone would raise with?

The only time I would cold call with KJo is when my opponents are considered to be weak and I feel they are capable of folding and I am dominating their play post-flop. Great job Don!! Now next time take the whole thing down!! :)

If you think a player or players are just out stealing blinds, wouldn't you consider cold calling with two big cards in hopes of crippling someone?

Of course, the particulars aren't mentioned here. How long had you played at the table with the player? Was rampant stealing going on? What was your table image? How big was the raise?

It seems to me that bloggers sometimes talk about stealing pots or pulling off bluffs or semi-bluffs, then are surprised when someone calls them on it. A good or lucky read, perhaps?

See ya at The Big Game.
