Well, my past two sessions were successful, one definitely more than the other.
On Wednesday night around 10:00 I hit the casino. The poker room was packed, but none of the tables had very much action. Sadly, after 3 table changes, I was still unable to find a good table. At one of my tables, I made a questionable laydown of a non-nut flush when a donk shoved 90bb into me. Unfortunately, he showed me that he had a smaller flush than I. Anyway, another regular at the table was berating my play on the hand and told me that he is going to just push me around now. I kindly replied, “When you pay my bills, you can play my hand for me. If you think you can push me around, go ahead and try.” Well, two hands later I take about $40 from him with middle pair while he was “trying to push me around.” I just laughed at him while scooping the pot. I could tell at this point he was becoming tilted. It’s funny to me when people at the table or just in general try to tilt me by talking smack. I have been through a lot of sh*t in my life and some stranger at a table over a couple hundred dollars is about the last thing going to put me on tilt.
Anyway, on my last table change, the regular joins me. At that table, I am put in a position to exact my revenge on said regular. Now, let me note I don’t generally target those who berate me at the table, but if the opportunity presents itself to make money, I will take it, regardless of the person. And, when I win, the win is a bit sweeter if from one of the a**holes. The regular gets involved in a hand with me where I have K-J and the flop is 9-10-Q with two hearts. We end up gettting it all in on the turn and I think he was drawing. Long story short, the flush doesn’t hit and I stack him for a little over $150. I tell him when the hand is over, “Weren’t’ you supposed to be the one pushing me around, what happened to that?” I know that really set him off and he continued to buy-in another 3 times and lost a little over a grand total. Too bad I didn’t get more of it. At the end of his losing session he says “Well, I make more than anyone at this table, so it doesn’t matter to me anyway.” Good Riddance a-hole. The best line of the night comes from an older regular at the table who said to the a-hole, “Well, that is what we call redistribution of the wealth!”
I end the night up only $85, but it is worth it to see the donk a-hole burn.
