Photo-a-day #158: June 7, 2014 - The Price of 7-2
Camera used: Canon 5D MKIII
Day 3 of Tomahawk Gambling weekend, and I should probably include a photo of some gambling... As always, while playing Texas Hold-em, we have a 7-2 game going (7-2 is mathematically the worst starting hand in Texas hold-em). We have a side-pot of $7 ($1 per player) that you can earn if you win a hand holding 7-2.
In this particular hand, Tenny decided to raise ONE HUNDRED BUCKS into a $17 pot to get me off my hand... I didn't have much (JQ which was top pair w/ Q kicker) but was in no mood, so went all in for $100 plus an additional $40... Jason took forever, but folded at the turn... and showed he did have a gut-shot straight draw with this lowly 7-2. This photo is mid-rabbit-hunting, with the board pairing a second 9 (Tenny would have lost if he called the additional $40, so a good fold).
We've all lost with that hand, and it always entertains me how we all try to win the big $7 while wasting much more with the lowly 7-2!
