as you can see by the guy beginning to comment, he went on total tilt/bitchfest for about 10 min. you'd think he has never seen aces get cracked by an underdog. wonder if he knows the odds of it happening.

in my defense, i was on the button, so when i bet this hand i was basically committing my whole stack to the pot, regardless of the flop; i was betting so that i assured myself of actually seeing all 5 cards. while having your aces cracked in this manner is disheartening, i did posses a 30% chance of winning, and in this case, i got all 30%.

anyway, i ended up finishing in 52nd place and making $79.66 for my $31. nothing to be proud of, but i did make the money. RiggsB, who took my bad beat and assured me that he had won more money online than i earned working last year, finished 45th and won $79.66. guess he wasn't as good as he thought. ;-)

tonight is $1/$2 NL at Northside...that is unless i decide to play $10/$20 Limit with a Kill. i am anxious to move up, but like most folks, not anxious to get stuck for $500 in one sitting. what's that old proverb? nothing ventured, nothing gained?

~~~wish me luck~~~
