So my buddy Brad from Tampa has been in town for work the past few days. He works for Wingstop, which doesn't have any stores directly in my area, but he centers his stays here and then disperses to the locations he needs to hit while in the state.
Had a nice dinner each of the past two nights and caught up some. Of course, both being degenerates, we have to find a way to gamble a bit while he's in town, which typically turns into finding a poker game of some sort.
This time, after dinner, we chose just to head to his room and split a buy-in online. I warmed us up a bit with the $200 I had remaining online by taking a "shot" at some 3/6 NL. Get AK in the SB. Under the gun who has been playing pretty recklessly makes it 12, so I pop to 48 and he calls. The pot is just shy of 100 for a K9x flop. I push my remaining 125 or so and of course get instacalled. The turn K looks oh so pretty, but after the river 4, I find that I was drawing slim to the magical 99. GG us.
We then load up for 600, hang tight for a bit playing 10/20 SH LHE, and then make an nice little run to cash out for 1555, or net +377 each.
Always sleep a little better booking a nice win.
Sweet dreams, all.
