Helloooooo!!!!

So I'm sure that you guys have been waiting ALL week to find out what that online player called me, right???? ROFL

Well first, I need to tell you how the hand ended, so if you haven't read last week's blog, you will have to go back so the that following makes sense...

So, I decided to go for the small value/bluff induce river bet. I didn't think he'd hero call for an over-pot ship, but I know he would come after weakness if he thought he had fold equity. I bet $110, leaving three tall hundo dollar stacks. He tanked then raised to $320, I shipped, and then he tanked again! He showed a king of clubs and called. I showed my hand, he looked back at the board, and went off!

"Are f**king kidding me? (laughing incredulously) Are you serious? You call with that? F***ing donkey girl. Wow, fuck, you call with nothing and get a flush!?" Cursing <--actually kind of similar to what he looked like

Obviously, I was the aggressor in the hand, so I wasn't really sure what he was talking about when he said I was calling... But I guess he didn't have a hand history to refer to. I didn't say anything and he walked away. When he came back to the table, he put his hand on my shoulders and said, "I apologize for the way I acted, it's just that the hand was so far fetched." What???? And you called me a donkey girl? WTF?

Man, people say the craziest things to me at the table. Just the other day, I went out for a night of fun drinking and playing poker with my PN girls Sarah Grant and Lynn Gilmartin. We were pretty tipsy and decided to play a $30 tournament at Bill's Gambling Hall. Awesome, I know! So it's a two table tourney, and Lynn and Sarah get sat at the other table. I sit down and this guy who looks like a legit cowboy (ten-gallon hat, scruffy face, denim button up, hole-in-knee frayed Levis and boots) says to me, "Yur perty." I say thank you. Then, with a super creepy look in his eye and crooked smile he says, "I got a fetish for oriental women." Oh, wow. Woooow. Umm cool? Hahaha eh he (awkward laugh)

Anyway, a few shots later, Lynn ended up shipping into me when I had aces, and I took our chips to victory!!! This is my super braggy winner photo... hahaha yeah those are twenties.

I know, I'm super classy! Eek! Confused

I have been having so much fun with Lynn here this past week, and we are about to have even more fun this weekend for my bachelorette party! (watch out if you're in Vegas, it ain't gonna be pretty... Er um PERTY)

It's funny that lots of poker guys really want to find an awesome girl who is into poker, right? Well I felt that way too! Haha and I have finally found her!!! Last night, Lynn was so awesomely degen! At 11 pm, she decides she wants to grind, so we went to Aria. Poker Face I would always rather sit at her table and hang out whenever we go together, so we sat in a new $1-$3 table.

There were so many bizarre events that happened... first, two gorgeous ladies sat to our left, one started to lose and they got into a fight, a drunkard sat down, shipped for full stacks w/ 4-5 off into Aces and Queens and obv won, and then Scott Seiver came over and caused a ruckus! (We love Scott, he's the best. Hilarious and super sweet even when he tries to be an ass Thumbs Up ) Anyway, we both ended up small winners on the session.

That brings me to my hand of the week which comes from last night's session in the $1-$3...

One of the girls opened in early position to $12. She'd been raising a decent amount and hadn't been three-bet yet. After observing the way she played the few hands I saw, she seemed decent. A recreational player calls in late position with about $80 behind. I have AA in the small blind. After only a couple orbits, I hadn't played many at hands at all, so I assume, as a woman as well, my image was pretty tight. The girl and I are both $300 deep... Do I three-bet? If so, to what? Can I flat? Should I flat?

Let me know what you think! Leave it in the comments...

And one more thing, Lynn and I interviewed Todd Brunson and PokerNews Hostess Laura Cornelius for the latest edition of the PokerNews podcast! Cheeeeck it!
