I’m Gettin’ Good At This Poker Thing

So I’m playing a SNG and the very first hand I’m dealt Q-10. With four limpers ahead I decide to call one off the button and see if I hit something. And I do–the flop comes Q-8-10. Top two, but a bit of a dangerous board, someone certainly has some kind of straight draw. It’s checked around to me and I decide to make a pot-sized bet.

Except…the action skips past me to the button, who also checks. Wait a second…where are my cards?

I don’t think I’ve ever done this before, but I folded my hand by accident. OK, I’ve done that before, but I think this is the first time I folded by accident and not realized it. Totally whiffed. And no, I didn’t have six Bloody Mary’s for breakfast.

Turns out the dude to my right flopped the straight. If I led out, and he raised me…it might’ve gotten ugly. But because my poker instincts are so sharp right now I wriggled off that hook before it even, uh, hooked me. My subconscious rules.
