Bodog online tournament - $6 "double-up"
My wife's favorite number is 37. So whenever I go off to play poker, she always says "remember...3-7-all-in!". I usually scoff and say "yeah, right".
But once in a while in a low stakes game, its fun to give 3-7 a shot, especially if its suited.
So in a Bodog online tournament yesterday, I got a 3-7 of diamonds and I decided to play. The flop hit two diamonds, so I'm now on a flush draw. I bet out and got called. Again on the turn. Another diamond comes on the river and I bet 1/4 of my stack. I am called. I lose to a guy with 5-5 because the board has 5,J,J, so he has a full house. Oh well.
Then, just two or three hands later, I get 3-7 again! This time they are both hearts. Here we go again! Low and behold, the flop comes with two hearts. Deja Vu! This time I get the final heart on the turn and I'm all in with my flush. I get called by a guy holding top pair (Ace in hand, Ace on board). My flush wins this time and I double up.
I guess hearts are better than diamonds...
