trip to osheas
after sitting in my room for many hours i knew i wasnt ready to sleep so i walked over next door to osheas. bought in for $200 and at one point had it up to $477. decided id leave soon if i started giving very much of it back. not sure why u guys say no one will read my blog here, since grouchie and pokergrump have blogs here and people read theirs. anyway, the table had lots of straddlers and the usual crowd of europeans and canadians who are about to leave town probably. the young guy on my left liked to bluff and he was from denmark. i had QK offsuit, limped for $2 in EP+1 and he made it $11 and as soon as i called i thought i might be making a mistake but was that really the mistake? turns out i had him dominated preflop. anyway 4 of us call. and the flop comes K79. checked to me, i bet $30 to see where i stand, and he just calls. (now earlier id heard him talking to the guy on the other side of him about how on another hand he might just call a raiser with aa). the other 2 fold. turn comes 5diamonds, i bet $75, he shoves $110 more, and i knew i shouldve folded but didnt. what can i do about that in the future? i dont want to set myself up to be bluffed. he had K7 for 2 pair. and he said he had a diamond draw which was true, he did.
