Well, so much for that.
Hrmph. So I'm sit down to play in the Pokerstars blogger championship. First hand of the tournament, and I get the big blind. First bad sign. I get 83 off-suit. Second bad sign. There are a couple of callers, and I check. Flop comes K83 rainbow. I check. Late position caller makes a pot sized bet, everyone folds between him and me, and I raise to 450. He comes back over the top, all-in. I have him on a King for sure, and anything but an 8 or a 3. However, I'm in for a rude awakening when he turns over K8 off-suit. I somehow managed to not find one of the other two 3's in the deck. I wished him good-luck and went on my way. I guess I may have been overaggressive in calling the all-in. Still sucks.
