Not a lot of luck at the virtual tables yesterday (two turbo 6-max and one regular tournament on PokerStars, plus a Rush re-buy tournament and Midnight Madness on Full Tilt). Every decent hand I had seemed to get drawn out on (Make your second pair with a three on the river against my single-paired ? Check!)
I did participate in one of the strangest hands I’ve ever seen during the Rush game. Six players went to the flop with 80 chips each in the pot. I was in the hijack position with ; not the strongest hand but worth a big blind.
Nobody raised on the flop, turn, or river, and the board showed
at the end of the last round of bets. This was the lay of the land:
- (small blind)
- (big blind)
- (under the gun)
- (under the gun + 1) folded preflop
- (under the gun + 2)
- (under the gun + 3) folded preflop
- (hijack me)
- (cutoff) folded preflop
Among six hands, no pair to anything on the board. No pocket pair better than the eights on the board. A six-way chop with everyone getting back their 80 chip investment.
