Has my luck improved? Has it fuck!
Check this out. This is one of the funniest hands I've ever played:

*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to FR Vessant [Qc Ac]
FR Vessant: raises 60 to 90
Standard raise with this strong hand.
PROJECT.KO: calls 90
Absolutely terrible player. Called my valuebet with KT on an AA885 board with 54. No prizes in this game for three pair, bro.
Bridget1968: calls 60
Even worse player. Has been involved in nearly every hand, making on the whole terrible decisions.
*** FLOP *** [4c Ah 5c]
FR Vessant: bets 210
PROJECT.KO: calls 210
Bridget1968: calls 210
WTF. Well, Bridget is seriously bad, and can have any ace here, and just about any draw. The other guy must have an ace imo. But if he does, he has to shove!
Either one could have a flush draw, and that would be good for me because obviously I'm drawing to the nuts.
*** TURN *** [4c Ah 5c] [7h]
FR Vessant: bets 480
I think I have to bet here. I'd prefer to be up against one player, but shorty isn't likely to win here.
PROJECT.KO: calls 435 and is all-in
Calling with his ace, I figure.
Bridget1968: raises 2655 to 3135 and is all-in
WTF? Well, she can have A7, I suppose, but she's played badly enough to put AJ/AT in her range. If she has me beat, I have odds to draw out. I'm not delighted to call, but I don't think I can fold here.
FR Vessant: calls 2620 and is all-in
Uncalled bet (35) returned to Bridget1968
*** RIVER *** [4c Ah 5c 7h] [As]
*** SHOW DOWN ***
Bridget1968: shows [3s 6c] (a straight, Three to Seven)
What. The. Fuck. The poker gods are just teasing me now.
FR Vessant: shows [Qc Ac] (three of a kind, Aces)
Bridget1968 collected 5330 from side pot
PROJECT.KO: shows [7d Ad] (a full house, Aces full of Sevens)
So both these fucking clowns drew out on me on the turn!
I know, this is how we make money. Except I'm not. I'm losing it. Because this is happening to me every fucking tourney I play. I have cashed one in the last nine. Yesterday, I desperation shoved J8 into JJ, pushed AK into AA, and stacked off with AT on a T high board, get this, against TT. And those are just the hands I didn't get fucked over by the god of luck, but was only booted in the nuts by the god of cold decks.
