The Sham-luck effect
I'm back on defense, back in the zone.
The phone rings just as I'm in a pickle. I have AA in a AQT flop and I'm min-raised.
Can't answer now! I 3-bet it to $18 and the toaster is all-in.
I call and he, of course, has KJ for a flopped str8.
As he's cussing me out in the Bodog chat, I'm wondering, Doesn't he know that Fuel says flopped str8s never win?
I pick up the phone and find it was Sham. When I tell him it, he says that Gnome calls it the Sham-luck effect. Have a Sham around and you may run the shoe playing blackjack at Bill's Gaming Saloon in Vegas. Or make the nuts on the river.
A good day so far -- won my bet on Venus in the Wimbledon finals and the quarterfinal on Nadal.
But I can't rest there. As Lil' Wayne says, I got to keep it moving, keep it moving.
So far ahead of those toasters there's a time difference.
