    So I was playing $5/$10 NL at a new casino that opened about half an hour at my house.

    I was on the button. The guy before me raised to $40. The SB and BB are both tight (I knew they'd likely fold without a big hand), and I have AQs (spades). The guy that raised is brand new to the table so I have no read on him.

    I raise to $100 - he calls. Flop comes Qd3s7s. I'm feeling great - top flush draw, and top paid with top kicker. I'm really only afraid if he is holding pocket pairs. He bets $150. I call. Card is 5s. I am feeling good, and my mind immediately turns to 'How can I get the most money from him?'.

    He bets $200 and my eyes light up. I think maybe he's made a King high flush...I only have about $400 more so I go all in.

    Turns the cards over.....4s6s.

    On the other hand, I won an all in QQ vs. KK, and and a big pot on the river with my KQ vs. someone's AQ....so I can't really complain overall for the night.

    Well, the funny thing is I didn't even see the possibility (not that I would have played it any differently even if i had), so when he flipped his card, I thought I'd won.

    So pissed off with myself. I was playing 1$/2$ online just now, killing it (up about 200), then get into a totally needless pot with the table big stack. Had 6/2 or something, reached the river really cheap, with a fullhouse. One smaller full house on board (2 4s), plus a flush. Wasn't paying much attention to the board, and decided to randomly shove my entire stack for value. The hand had been really passive and since he was a huge stack I was hoping for a crazy flush or smaller house call.

    My opponent turns over two fours.

    ****. Soul destroying, simply because it was so avoidable and I was just being arrogant. Had to vent.

    Barely played poker last year. Think I was well constrained to not play when the money was too dear to me. Hope to get back on the tables in the later half of the year. Will take some time to get my skills back though unfortunately.

    Yeah, the FBI evidently love their drama.

    You can still play though, just go to pokerstars.co.uk. They've only shut down the .com domain.
