Typically, i wouldn’t play k3 suited or offsuit ... but this day i was in position, felt it a good opportunity to open my hand range and it didn’t cost me much to see the flop! great choice, as i hit a set! with my chip-stack dwindling and less than 20 big blinds, i pushed all in. the small blind had called pre-flop. i assumed they had a wide hand range as well and might fold unless they had a pretty good hand. to my surprise, they called my all-in revealing pocket pair 6s. at this point, he had me beat. as the turn card came a jc i realized i only had four outs and the odds were against me. then the river card. my saving grace, the 3c giving me quads! i doubled up! well, that’s poker and a little bit of luck! #thegardenscasino#poker#pokertournament#fridays#hawaiiangardens#pokerlife#doubledup#doubleup
As the sun set on our first full day of hunting our season was already over and the work had just begun. nothing but respect for this beautiful, unforgiving country. we went into the wilderness of idaho and came out with 2 bull elk!
Missing: large albie with 160 yards of super slick and backing attached to a 1 ¼ ounce epoxy jig in albie crack. contact @albiefever for return instructions.
storytime: a few weeks ago, i was fishing a pretty well-known spot on the mass mainland. we had a fair number of fish showing and some landed in the 8 to 10lb range. it was a long afternoon and a tough bite, and as the sun went down the crowd filtered down to just 3 guys. as you all know, according to albie superstition, fish will show right after someone leaves, so if someone leaves, be sure to stick around at least 15 minutes.
sure enough, as the sun was just about to set we got a good shot at some showing fish. i was able to get a good shot and got blasted by a really nice fish. this fish proceeded to turn and go. and it continued to go. it went for almost 15 seconds until i had not much more left on my spool than what you see above. when i was down to my backing, i had to lock down my drag, but the fish kept going. i lightly cupped the spool to try to turn this fish but *plink*, she gone. that fish ran off 160 yards of 20lb super slick on a penn battle that was making about 12 or 13lbs of drag. the 3 of us were in shock. we had never seen an albie take like that…. if it was an albie. all part of the game, it’s what keeps us coming back for more.
