Joachim on list. He texted me to say that two people jumped ahead of him on the list. I told him there was no number above his head (indicates a player is waiting for a seat). He said there was a number above his head. And Starr, who runs the game, is in ER. I know nothing about this. Tough spot. I just do what I can.

FunkyByt3 probably shouldn’t have showed bluff earlier. That gave flapjakjesus information.

Unfortunately, I didn’t record the winning hand here. As my dedicated readers know, I’m never going to make things up. I screwed up on this hand by not paying full attention and missing some information. My bad. I do know one thing: QQ was no good.

In chat, Mrx500 said that he tried to make it $100 but wasn’t used to the platform because it was his first time playing. He didn’t know he was going to be timed out. I told him I would have called, but I couldn’t beat a 7. He said he had A7. Yikes! If that’s true, I’m lucky. But I’m not sure he would have raised on that flop with a 7. Most players don’t in a heads-up situation because they try to disguise their hand.

No action post-flop.

Flapjakjesus tables AJ and scoops.

I’m assuming Saintsfangir had KQs. Only hand that makes sense. She would have bet an overpair on the flop, and if she had AK or AQ, she would have won the hand. She also would have won the hand with any pocket pair. And she’s not the type of player to call a $22 pre-flop raise with a suited-connector. That’s because she’s a smart player. You can say that KQs is technically a suited-connector, but you know what I mean.

AtomBomb jams for $22.50.

Fold.

I invited him and he’s a friend. I would usually call there, even if it’s a friend, but he was having too good of a time in chat hanging out with friends he hadn’t seen in months. He has been quarantined to his home for reasons not to be discussed here. There is no way I was calling here.

____________

I think I’m a mix between a friendly narcissist and an empath. I say that because when someone is good to me I will always do whatever I can for them, stick up for them, and just always be there for them. If it’s someone I just know, nothing that happens to them fazes me. In most cases, I have no emotions. And I like it that way. I used to the opposite. That REALLY sucked! I just clicked off and life is better.

I play in this game most nights (not all nights), but I only write about it on Sunday nights. If you want to play this Sunday at 8 p.m. EST, let me know. I hope to be writing this book for a while. When you read my Cash Game Book results, that includes all sessions, not just Poker With Friends sessions.

We also have a good turnout on Tuesday nights. That game begins at 9:30 p.m. I usually start playing at around 10:30 p.m. A lot depends on how long the interview goes on FlopHouse Radio. I don’t want to be doing too much at once. I also play in a free poker tournament that night, so there’s a lot going on. And I’m watching the FlopHouse chat room and answering other messages.

Anyway, if you want to be in a book that will hopefully be around forever, just message me. I’ll give you the details. I will be playing the next Poker With Friends session from my hotel room at Horseshoe Tunica. I never re-buy, so I hope it goes well. Lasting longer in these sessions also gives me more content. If I don’t last long, I’ll walk downstairs and play some live poker.

As I write this, I don’t know what will happen yet for the next session, but you can find out by turning the page. Up until this point…

Win/Loss: 15-9

Overall: +$1,533.07
