I have pocket 10s in late position and I raise to 3.5 times the big blind. The small blind calls because that’s what she does.
The flop is A K J rainbow. The small blind checks, because, well… that’s what she does. I’ve seen her check call the river with the mortal nuts at least twice.
I bet almost the size of the pot. She hesitates a moment and says, “All in!”
Did this weak-assed player just check raise me? Okay. Wait a minute. Have I ever seen her check raise? I do a quick mental review of all the hands we’ve played together over the last few months. I’ve never seen this. I have no idea what to do. Scary board.
She smiles at me, flips her cards and says, “You’ve been Hammered!” 7 2 off-suit. Why the hell did I introduce this concept to these poor excuses for poker players?
Did I mention that she’s our chaplain? I got hammered by the chaplain.
