After misplaying that last hand I went ahead and decided to see how well short handed my A7 would hold up.

Kim G calls $8
Player 2 folds
Player 3 calls $7

FLOP:  2c 3d Ac

What would you do here?  I should have bet but I was trying to go for a reraise.  A mistake.
Kim G checks
Player 3 checks
Player 7  checks

TURN:  2c 3d Ac 5c

This time I fired away – no more free cards.
Kim G bets $29
Player 3 folds
Player 7  folds

Kim G wins $27 uncontested
$2 raked.


It didn’t make up for the stupid play of the previous hand, but it got me back on track.  One of the most important reminders is that once you make a mistake, try and learn from it and don’t let it throw you off of your game.  No matter who you are, you will make a mistake sooner or later.  Just try to minimize the damage.
