I'm posting today out of obligation. It's been a full 3 weeks of doldrums now. I hate it. I need more sleep 4-6 hours doesn't cut it and it creeps into my behavior. I'm not obligated necessarily to my handful of readers out there (no offense) but obligated to the knowledge that navel-gazing helps me, and I need to post here and get it out.
Tuesday was a blur as I floundered in the WWDN, as of now I don't remember any hand I played or where I ended up....wait thats right, I didn't play the WWDN, but I did manage to play a little at FT later and donk away about 3 bills. The thrill of a decent score was in my head and I wanted to turn it into something bigger. Not to be, yet.
Wednesday was a trial in multiple frustrations as I played a decent game at .50/1 covering all my tourney buy-ins, but got my ass handed to me in the blogger games and the 25K guarantee. In all three MTTs I put my money in ahead and got kicked in the junk.
25K 4 hands in get bullets and raise 4x and get a caller, flop comes with garbage and I push, he calls with 99. Turn brings a nine.
Mook : 88 vs AK Qxx on the flop. I've already raised pre-flop and called a re-raise by the villain. I firmly put him on Ax or worse. Flop comes and I make a pot sized bet villain pushes and I go with my read. Turn is a K. Good call sir!
Mook2 QJ with a medium to short stack QJx flops and I push, big stack calls (correctly) with KK and turns his set. Yay me.
I did manage to blow some steam off playing low limit horse with Budo, waffles and scottMC. Some retard there kept insisting I was gonna bust when I bluffed him out of a big pot with the waffle (24o). How do you call on every street and a few raises only to fold on the river to one more meager bet???? Somehow I made him do just that.....it was hawesome. I did manage to leave there down about 6 bucks though since I played like every other hand.
I showed up late to CC's Thursday bash, clearly thinking it was at 10. I ramped up a little but got smoked with a succession of low to mid pairs which I tend to play way too passively. I missed getting points again and need a top 3 in the next tourney to have a chance at scoring some extra cash. I then won my buy-in and then some back playing 25/NL. I promise not to play any more cash above 50/1 for at least 2 months....whew, there...I said it.
I'll be online at some point tonight, the wife has book club. I have minimal fundage in FT and Stars due to paranoia and a need for some spare x-mas cash. I'll settle in to some cheap MTT's and token chases I think. See you around.
