On the night of our first satellites, we started up a small cash game after a few of us were busted out of the tournament. It was $1-$2 NL. I (along with 2 other people) bought in for $100, and there were 3 people who bought in for less.
I was the captain of the table from the start. I was constantly raising and playing very aggressive and had built up a nice little profit of approx $175.
After an hour and a half, we were playing 5 handed, and Kim Hock was dealt AA in early position. She opened it up by raising preflop to $15. I smooth called her on the button with 97o, and it was heads up.
The flop was Kxx, and Kim led out for $15. I immediately raised her to $30 (hoping to find out where I was, and possibly get a free card). Kim hesitated for a second and then smooth called. For whatever reason, I sensed that she did not like my raise (although I would've loved it if I had been in her shoes). I didn't realize how strong she actually was.
The turn is a blank, and she again checks to me. I immediately bet $40 to try and take down the pot. She hesitated for a long time, and then "reluctantly" called.
The river is another King. She checks again, and I know that I have to represent this King, otherwise I have no chance to win the $170 pot. I quickly fire out an $85 bet (putting her all-in). She folds showing pocket Aces. I muck my garbage hand.
I didn't show my bluff because I felt bad about it, and I knew it would put her on tilt for weeks (I certainly would be). Sorry Kim. :)
Side Note - If it was against Morris, I would've flipped my cards up and gone into full-blown "Tony G" mode. "I'll DESTROY YOU!! I'M GOING TO GET ALL YOUR CHIPS! I'M GOING TO RIP YOUR HEART OUT!! I WON THAT HAND BECAUSE I HAVE A "HEART"!! I would've then danced a jig around the table...
1) At no point in time were you the captain of the table. The second hand I sat down you bluffed off $100 to me with 5 high. 2) You wanted to find out where you were? Good point, 9 high is often the best hand. 3)You would never have had the chance to represent 3 kings against me, as I would have put an end to your antics on the flop.
Mark, I bluffed you out of AA one time when I was holding 72 offsuit. I made my straight on the river. Wait..... is that really a bluff? Well, anyway. It doesn't matter. Whatever. I still took your money.
