I finished ninth. When the blinds were 2000/1000/300, a player limped to the small blind who raised to 4000. I called and the limper called. The flop was ♠7 ♦7 ♠4 and the small blind went all in. I called, the limper went away and the bozo, er, I mean the small blind turned over ♠J ♦4! He was making a move. I showed him the bad news: ♣A ♦A. Even a jack is not an out. I would have a higher two pair.
The turn came a low spade, and I got the sick feeling. Sure enough, the river was a fourth spade giving him a jack-high spade flush. Instead of having 105K chips, I was heading for the door.
I'm going to see the Cardinals in St. Louis on Wednesday. Time for a break from poker.
