HUC3 Was Not To Be

I have heard that some people hate hand histories.  If you want a short recap, here it is:

My first match lasted one hand.  I flopped top two pair and got it all in by the turn and faded the magic K that would have sent me packing.

My second match I got it all in with 1010 vs AQ and had a monster chip lead.  I then got it all in pre-flop with AKs vs Q9s (same suit) and was ready to claim victory.  It was not to be.

Dave was back in the game and it was time to play poker again.  Final hand left a mark, my junk is swollen like a pair of grapefruits and are a ugly purple yellowish mess of bruises.  Get it all in on the turn with my K10 (2 pair) vs 55.  You can guess what came on the river and caused the discoloration of said junk.  2 outers hurt my feelings.

Here are the three pivotal hands of the HUC3 round 1 match.  I am happy with my play and reads, Lady Luck just chose to desert me at the key times.

One Hand..that must have been sweet!

Dave seems to have me outmatched in the suckout category. He has been very lucky against me too.

Thanks for joining!

On Tuesday during WWdN CJ stopped by to give Maudie some suckout dust. I believe he Inadvertently dropped some my way as I have been a suckout artist all week :) Thanks for the great match
