Australian Poker League (APS) Update

Q) What do these cards have in common:

  • AK Suited
  • QQQ
  • A8
  • AK
  • J8 suited flush
  • Full house

A) These are the last 6 hands (in 6 games) that I have had in poker and have been knocked out (No limit of course) by

  • AK Suited   -> Beaten by 6 8 off suite that linked up a straight
  • QQQ  -> Other guy had 3 Q too with higher kicker
  • A8  -> beaten by KK
  • AK  -> beaten by 66
  • J8 suited flush   -> beaten by Ace nut flush
  • Full house -> beaten by quad Qs

If I believed in luck I would say I was having a run of bad luck – I seem to get given very good cards which get pipped by not so good starting cards. I think I’d rather get rubbish cards and lose than keep hitting good cards and being pipped by extraordinary hands….. Whinge whinge whinge.

Ok, good, I got that off my chest. One advantage of having your own poker blog is that you can whinge about your bad beats 😉

These results mean that I go to the bottom of the Australian Poker League (well Sydney Poker League to be precise) – from winning it for 11th months of last year to the very bottom of the poker league scoreboard – oh the shame 😉

So, without further whinging, here are the results from the last 2 sessions. It must be said that everyone is playing very well – Sandy and Lee and consistienlty placing and Dave and Morgs are also rising fast. Jeff is still Jeff….
