Well, my trip to Reno last week wasn't as glamorous as Quads' and SJ's trip to Vegas, but very interesting.
Playing a 3-6 kill pot table at the Eldorado, I was working it very nicely, up about $120 after 2 hours or so. Look down to an AJo in the big blind on a kell pot. I routinely raise to $12 to find 3 callers and another raise. I re-raise, and evryone calls for 5 to the flop.
Flop comes a sweet Jh, Jc, Kh. I bet out $6, everyone calls except previous raiser, who re-reaises. I re-raise to $18 and everyone calls.
Turn comes a Ad, filling me up. I bet out $12, 2 call and am re-raised again. A little suspicious, but this guy had played real loose for about an hour, so I come over the top again. Everyone Calls.
River comes a Qh. The guy on the button chuckles. (he wasn't the raiser, just a cold caller) I didn't like the laugh, so I check. Checks around to him, and he flips over 9h, 10h, screaming, "you have pocket jacks, right? Bad beat Jackpot.". Beutiful, I ran up against one of Hagar's one-outers. The straight flush crushes my boat. And I was one card from collecting $24,000. Start the tilt-fest.
I come back later that night to win back about $250, but gave most of that back the next morning. Had a pretty "even" trip, but hate losing to one outers.
Worst of all, that guy wasn't even in the WSOP like my fellow BYOCers foes. Oh-well :roll:
