You may remember when I introduced Jena a few weeks back. It turns out that the HAMMER is now a regular part of her tournament strategy. Here's an email she sent me:
Mike & I played in a local tournament Sunday afternoon. I was the big blind on my fifth hand of play when the hammer struck. There were six callers so there was $700 in the pot when I finally looked at my cards. I tried to refrain from laughing as I raised to $300 and got four callers. The flop comes 72Q rainbow. The turn is A and we are down to two players. The river seals the deal with a 2! The showdown comes --- my opponent flips over AK proudly until all eyes fall dumbfounded to my ducks full of 7's. I begin to laugh raking in a monster pot as the muttering begins --- Mike is at the next table and yells, "Don't gloat!"
I end up taking second place winning a cool $1,050.
Thanks for the lesson!Jena
