I am she.
The Bubble Bitch.
We ended up having 15 players at the Home Game this weekend. The T boys represented along with some of the usual faces and one newb. I was in a generous mood when I handed out the chipstacks: 5000K. My structure allows for a one time rebuy before the end of the 4th level. Since I increased the starting stack to 5000 chips we didn't have quite as many rebuys as we sometimes do.
I blinded down to about 4k in chips. Saw a flop or two and was around 3100 just before the end of the rebuy. I picked up KK after a raise and a call - the perfect time to ship it and hope to chip up or rebuy. No callers.
Story of my night. Too short to play any real poker. I finally shoved with 66 after a utg raise from one of the more active players. He called with A9o and, holy shit, my 66 holds up.
Not long after I shipped KK from the BB after a raise and a call. The raiser folded but the SB said he couldn't fold. He shows AT and, sure as shit, the door card is an A. Crap.
The VERY NEXT HAND I get dealt AA. It's raised before me and I ship it. He calls and I say, "You're not going to like this." He has AQ and my hand holds.
What a friggin roller coaster ride.
It gets down to the bubble - 5 left, 4 places pay. I'm not in great shape but not too bad off. It's folded to the SB to my BB. He raises and I look down at A8 and I ship it like a donk. The SB was the newb to my game but not a donk by any stretch. He hadn't been getting out of line at all. I have no idea why I thought he was making a move. His TT holds and I'm the Bubble Bitch.
To quote my buddy, Fike, "I'm ready to get paid and am tired of losing. I thoroughly expect to make bank this Tuesday."
See ya'll at the Cash game on Tuesday. Rebuy!
