I hope you noticed that I changed the banner of my blog. The reason Margarite and I are official dating so I thought I should include her in the blog. Below is a poker hand that I thought I had to show. It is a great example of where I should have lost my shirt but instead my instincts paid off and I won $180.75 which is about 3.25 years of living in Botswana.

Oh, the picture is of a professional bike race Mobe organized that went through our village. The only issue, there are no paved roads in our village so the bikes did not fair so well.

*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to DUG [As Ts] I hate this hand but it is suited so I have to play.Spagiari: raises $6 to $8 This guy is wild and could have anything.
bet2live: folds
usagolf: folds
TehBluffman: folds
Arnolfini: folds
wildogg2k5: folds
DUG: calls $8 worth a call to see the flop.
akaginsf: raises $18 to $26 Has JJ, QQ or KK if he had AA he would not have bet as much.
Min9: folds
Spagiari: folds
DUG: calls $18 Why did I call? Sometime you have to go with your gut. The chance of an 8 hitting is slim, though I am confident if one hits I will win a nice pot.
*** FLOP *** [Js 2s Td]
akaginsf: bets $38 He has QQ or KK, if he had JJ he would not bet as much, though maybe to chase the flush away.
DUG: calls $38 Why did I call? If he has KK or QQ I will win if any Ace hits of Ten. So that is (3) Ace’s (2) Ten’s. If any Spade comes I will win. There are still 9 spades. So that is a total or 14 cards that will give me a win. Out of 40 cards still not seen that is better then 4 to 1 to win. Though I am not getting the right odds with the implied odds I feel good about the call.
*** TURN *** [Js 2s Td] [2d] Not good, now a Q or K depending on which he has will give him a full house that takes one of my outs away.
akaginsf: bets $109.75 and is all-in
DUG: calls $109.75
Bad call but I have a feeling.
*** RIVER *** [Js 2s Td 2d] [Tc] Bingo full house. Poker gods pay me off.
*** SHOW DOWN ***
akaginsf: shows [Kh Kc] (two pair, Kings and Tens)
DUG: shows [As Ts] (a full house, Tens full of Deuces)
DUG collected $354.50 from pot
