Steve ZolotowI had just finished a losing session in $300-$600 in a tough game at Aria. (I’m sure I need to do some work on badacey and badeucey!) As I was leaving the poker room, a slight acquaintance tried to borrow a five hundred dollar stake. I was hesitant to loan him anything since I didn’t know him that well, I had just lost and I was going back to New York City in a few days. Sensing my hesitation, he said, “I’m playing great, but I’ve been really unlucky – let me tell you my last hand.”

“It was folded to me on the button with AHeart Suit QHeart Suit and I raised to $20. The big blind called. We both had around $500. The flop was QDiamond Suit JHeart Suit 2Heart Suit. He checked, I bet $30, he raised to $100, I reraised to $300 and he went all-in.”
