The Poker Game of Life

Poker and scotch on the rocks. Below are my reflections on life and poker. My journey from $4-8 as a past time to $30-60 for serious money and my life experiences in between.

Apparently I'm a fish

So I've recently learned that I'm a fish. Imagine that, a winning player at high stakes limit poker and I'm a fish. Here's the story...

I raise w/ AQ from the cutoff and the small blind calls.

The flop is 234 rainbow and she checks I bet of course.
The turn is a 8 and she checks I bet. This bet doesn't happen all the time but it sure happens a lot I'm a bully man and that's the way it goes.
The river is a 5. She checks and I bet. She calls.

I got 3rd nut straight and she turns over K2. She then proceeds to call me a fish. It's amazing what some people believe is good play and what they believe is bad.
