R-Day Minus 33

The Poker Mutant will be retiring (mostly) from poker on 1 January. This is the latest installment in his thrilling countdown to the End of Times.

November is almost over and after an evening hanging out at the new Portland office of a virtual reality game development company, then out to my father’s for some computer support (and no poker), it was back to the virtual felt for the Ignition Casino $7K NLHE tonight.

Things were going pretty well, I doubled up early, then got all-in with [kx jx] against [qx jx]. We both paired up, but he ran out backdoor quad queens.

I doubled up with a pair of jacks and was sitting with about ten big blinds when I shoved jacks, got called by [ax jx], and he hit the ace on the river!

Just did a little $2 NLHE Jackpot Sit-N-Go after that. $10 payout but I ended up in 3rd.
