10:05pm I just had to post this to vent. First read my earlier post today about pocket Kings.
I made it to heads-up tonight, and with -- you guessed it -- pocket Kings, went all-in and strategically got the other guy with 10-J to call. Nice right?
Then, the flop comes K (really nice now ... trips), Q, 4. Rut ro.
So trip Kings vs a straight draw ... still OK as he only has 8 outs for the straight.
Then the dagger turn comes 9!!!!!!!!!! Damn. And of course the board didn't pair for the then-needed full house or show the case King.
I love poker, and it's done a world for my trading as I've explained before, but this is why I've said by comparison, trading "seems" far easier. For seldom do such suck-outs occur in the market, and even when they do, it's never an all-or-nothing proposition.
