How easy to get overconfident
feeling invincible playing against the fish and winning then after 4 hours today i get AKclubs in but and raise ... fish in Sb calls and flop comes 729 rainbow...chks and i Cb usually to a call so not too worried at this - turn is 5h ...fish chks again and i bet steal as this is where they usually fold and had been for the last hour since joining the table.....i get reraised all in.
inside me screams hit fold - outside I hit call ....why I know im beat, I have nothing and know they have a monster even calling set as soon as I called....but my ego just wouldnt let it go,,,arrrrggh.
Not tilted about the hit but at myself for letting my ego get ahead of my reason.big big lesson learnt 4 hours of play and half my stack gone in one click.
I suppose I can look at it as paying for learning a valuable lesson.....be confident yes ... invincible not.
Thanks for letting me get it of my chest and by the way the river was the fourth 9!!!!!!
