Went up to Canada for the weekend, and got to play twice. First night played for about 1.5hrs and lost ~140. Played ok, but payed off some chick when I was pretty sure I was beat with QJ on a J high board. Got tired and decided to bail before I lost it all.
FF to next day: Got in a nice long session. Sat down at the 1-2 table with 200 buy-in, brand new table. Big action table and I doubled up early with AK on a KJX flop when a guy open-shoipped with K3 after cold calling my 30 re-raise.
About 20 min later the same guy calls 30 again pre-flop when I have JJ. Flop is 742 two diamonds, and he open ships for ~200. I call and he shows AKo, and thankfully whiffs on 4th and 5th streets.
So now I have ~550 or so and our big hand comes up. I pick up AQ, and the guy on my right opens for 10 bucks. He was pretty tight player, and I had been chatting with him a little bit. He was a local, and he knew how to play for the most part. He also respected my game cause he was making comments like, "I'm not going to get into a hand with this guy!" and "You aren't going to be giving that stack away easy, I know that". Anyhow, I raise him to 30, and a mid-stack behind ships for ~70 total. He was a kinda tilty/gambler and I don't think anyone gave him much credit for a big hand. Well the guy on my right just calls the bet. I considered raising again to get him out, but decided with AQ I would rather see the flop.
Flop: K J 10 rainbow.
I am OOP. Normally I would just bet out here, but this guy knew I wasn't fooling around when I bet, and I wanted to get all the money in. I decided to check so that he would bet out and commit himself with 2 pair or something like that. He checked behind.
Not a bad card for me. I still have the nuts, but I might be chopping if he has QQ or any random Q. There are now 2 spades on board, (K and A) but I am not worried much about a flush draw. If he had AK or AJ he just two paired, and since I showed weakness on the flop he will probably raise me if I bet out. So I do, I bet 60. Smallish bet into a pot of about 210. I am really hoping to get raised here, he has ~250 behind and I have him covered. He just calls.
Well the last spade got there, but I don't have him on a spade draw (the A and K are both onboard and I am not sure what he is calling 70 preflop with that has 2 non A or K spades). Otherwise I have the nuts and at worst am chopping. I decide to lead for 100, about half his stack. He ships on me and I call. He shows me the 9s 10s for the winner.
I was pretty surprised, but when I looked at it from his side it made sense. He raised with a gambler hand, got raised by me, then got re-popped by a maniac. He called against the maniac because he knew he was coming in light. He probably thought I would fold too. The flop came pretty bad for him, but I checked, so he did too. Now the turn comes, and he has a pair and a flush draw, and I am not showing much strength. He calls my small bet and hits the river where now I start leading into him. He figures to be good and goes with it.
So anyway, someone yell at me or something.
