    So as some of y'all know, I play poker at Foxwoods in Connecticut just about every weekend.

    Last night I took a beat.

    I arrived at the casino at like 11 and sat down at a pretty wild 1/2 NL table with 300 USD. There was a guy there with over a grand in front of him, playing very aggressively with marginal hands and getting lucky. I played conservatively most of the night looking to catch a hand and play a big pot against the donk.

    Finally at 4 AM it happened. I picked up pocket kings in late position after he popped the pot to $20 ... I reraised $60 and he repops to $150 ... I now have a tough decision to make ... call, fold, or raise ... if it were any other player at the table I would have either folded or just smooth called but because of how loose this guy played I moved in on him for the rest of my money. He called after a couple minutes contemplating it. I had around $350 invested into the pot when all the money went in and was sure I had the best hand ... he flipped over AK off suit. WTF??!!

    Flop came out 10 10 6 ... the turn was a duece ... and I bet you already know the river card ... a mother fucking ace.

    It was a long, angry ride home for me.

    :evil:

    If you don't have a big enough bank roll counting cards almost doesn't really earn you that much. You have to be able to afford to take the inevitable losses too.
