Raped at the Doublewide

by Luckbox

Thank god this is figuratively speaking... although in south Louisiana, you can never tell.

Although if it's gonna happen, at least the Hilton Sisters were involved...

I'm back at the scene of my greatest comeback ever.

This time, we've got 11 people at the table with $10 a piece in the pot. We started with T1000 chips and were a few hands in. I'm down to T900.

I'm dealt pocket Q's in late position with blinds at 25/50. It's raised to T200 and there are two callers in front of me. That means there's T675 in the pot. I decide to push all in figuring I'll either double up without a showdown or be in good shape against a caller.

First, the BB pushes all in for less. Then the original raiser fights with himself before folding. Then I get called again. Then another player pushes all in for T950. That puts four of us into a pot worth T3775.

I say, "Let's turn 'em up." And everyone shows except the last caller. He's the one who made the final call of T700 into a pot worth T2975. When he flips K8 of clubs, I understand why he was so reluctant to show his cards.

That means the guy first called the T150 raise with a suited K, then called three all-ins with a suited K. Could someone with a good knowledge of odds tell me if this was a good call against three unknown hands? Could he really figure either of his cards were live?

I certainly didn't want to play my Q's against three callers. In my mind, I thought I might be behind. Instead, my other two opponents flipped A8o and AJo.

To recap: QQ vs. A8o vs. AJo vs. K8s

Once I punched that in the handy dandy Hand Analyzer, I learned I won this hand 50% of the time. It ended up being a coin flip for me. Surprisingly, the K8s won about 25% of the time. I guess that means he was getting good odds on his money. The AJo won about 16% and the A8o only 4%.

The flop was all rags, but the K on the turn was enough to knock me out. I got no help on the river.

The guy said he called because there was so much money in the pot, he figured if he got lucky he'd own the table. I suppose I can't argue with that.

The problem is that I didn't like the guy to begin with. He talked a big game and kept telling everyone he plays poker everyday. He certainly didn't show it. Earlier in the night, he berated another player for not checking down a short-stack who was all-in. The girl had next to nothing and was never going to be a threat. He took all the fun out of it for her and she left the table a little dejected. I thought he was rude all the way around.

So when he sucked out on me on that huge pot, I was none too pleased. I let out an expected, "You called with K8 of clubs!?!?!?" But I left it at that. It's poker. That's the way it goes. And for 10 bucks... can you blame him?
