I'm slimed in the 1k and Limit Holdem with Liz Lieu

by Roy Winston |  Published: Feb 04, '08


I played the 1k event at The LAPC today and didn't make the first break. I had someone shoot an angle that I hadn't seen before. I was in the big blind and looked down at A K, there were two limpers in the pot and raised 4 BB and got 1 caller. The flop came A 5 3, and I bet 550 into a 1k pot. The other player threw in 150. When the dealer pointed out his mistake he first seemed puzzled and went into the tank on whether he should still call. Reluctantly, he completes the bet, and a brick comes on the turn. Now there is 2100 in the pot and he only has 2k left and I put him all in. He calls and turns over a set of threes. Needless to say I thought it was a slimy move.

Next I went down to play some cash and sat in a 200/400 limit Holdem game. It was a really tough game, and I thought, if you can't find the sucker at the table than it has to be you. So I played for a couple of hours and went to diner. One good thing came out of the game, I got a chance to talk with Liz Lieu, who was telling me about her website, I was a little intimidated because everyone else wanted to raise the limit to 400/800 and I was the hold out. I have to say when an attractive woman wants to raise the stakes and you decline, it's a little humbling. Having just busted out of a tournament the last thing I needed to do was take a big loss in a game I didn't really want to play.
