“get some Australian in ya”, Fosters

another short session. this time i dared to open a 2c/5c table lol. turned out this was a good idea, with one big hand …. only played 13 hands so it’s a bit surprising, even more surprising that I actually hit my draw on the river and that includes calling a turn steal from the guy in the SB …. it was a 100% steal attempt since he folded to my river bet, just glad the other bloke couldn’t lay down his straight he hit on the turn.

I would normally have dropped hand 3 on the flop but on this occasion I was happy to call the guy down to the river (and be a rat !) since he started the hand with only 42bb.

hand 4 was against another shorty, I had him outchipped 6 to 1 but this time he gets the drop on me when the river arrives. so goes it.

I know its bad, but sometimes these shortstakkers really get on my wick ! another short sesh, 1hr 38mins to be exact, another few roubles for my troubles 😉

pleasant dreams

sobriety test

made the (difficult :)) conscious decision to play some cold turkey poker last night. a very short session but good all the same.

managed 128 hands in 44mins (free time is at a premium due to an impending house move)

at 1c/2c I ran    VP$IP 22    PFR% 8    +42bb (128 h/p)

quite pleased with that and rather pleased with the way I played. laid down two big hands to one probable monster and one real monster which the villain proudly showed. there would have been another 12bb profit but when I rivered the nut flush but the board had paired on the turn, I check, villain bet out 12bb .. I “knew” he’d hit but it was cheap enough to look him up …. he had hit trips on the turn and with me rivering the nut flush he caught a very surprising boat with his trash hand. (AJ85 rainbow is soooo fucking trashy !)

no doubt he thinks I’m an uber-fish for calling 😉

oh bugger, no variation tuesday at PPP 😦 but instead, a very nice $100 added freeroll 🙂 courtesy of Crumble (who is now linked-up)

I’ll be there, halfway to pissed …. in hotel in Aberdeen for a few nights this week …. if you were here, you’d have an ale too ….

pleasant dreams
