After booking the decent win yesterday, I was following Yankees in his trny last night and ended up dropping it all back and finished out the day ~even. I was helping out a friend that wanted me to review a couple sessions for him this morning so I wasn't able to start up any tables until about 12:30 this afternoon. My very first hand of the day was one that made me want to just shut the tables down and go home with my tail between my legs. Here's the hand:
Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $1.00 BB (5 handed) - Full-Tilt Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com
Hero (BB) ($100)
Preflop: Hero is BB with 10, 10
2 folds, Button bets $3, 1 fold, Hero calls $2
Flop: ($6.50) 7, 10, Q (2 players)
Hero checks, Button bets $4, Hero raises to $15, Button raises to $43, Hero raises to $97 (All-In), Button calls $54
Turn: ($200.50) K (2 players, 1 all-in)
River: ($200.50) 7 (2 players, 1 all-in)
Total pot: $200.50 Rake: $3
Button had 7, 7 (four of a kind, sevens).
Hero had 10, 10 (full house, tens over sevens).
Outcome: Button won $197.50
After that hand, I was just sitting there shaking my head. I couldn't really feel bad as I played the hand perfectly and got super unlucky. I went on to play through a good session and pick up 2.2bi overall. Then later on, I was sitting and watching some 1k nl and a friend said to me...
"You are due to do something stupid, jump in!" Told him he was FOS and did think about playing higher than my normal stakes. I ended up shortstacking ( I know, I know) 400nl and was amazed at how poorly people adjusted to me. I managed to take $660 out of that (buying in for $80) and made 2 bad calls the whole time I played which cost me another $140 or so. Anyhow, today ended up being a great day and +$889.45
Until tomorrow....or whenver I update this again.
