May 27, 2008, 11PM: Played 45 minutes, Lost $33.00 at Full Tilt Poker
$30 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (5th out of 9 Players)

Lasted longer than I probably should have.  Made some good plays and some bad ones.  I really feel like putting pressure on pre makes me make better decisions preflop in the long run.  I like the way I played, but not the outcome.  I was pressing when I was in position and picking off blinds enough so that I could lay down marginal hands when someone raised into me preflop.
 
I was doing very well all tournament, then ran into JQ vs 22 flop J82.  Only way I don't double the guy up is to lay down preflop, which was an option, since I was UTG (instead I min-raised).

May 26, 2008, 6PM: Played 2 minutes, Lost $22.00 at Full Tilt Poker
$20 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (9th out of 9 Players)

Lasted until my big blind.  I pick up T7o and get three callers behind and the big blind limping, so I fire out 5x BB and see 78J flop.  So I fire 300 and get raised all-in.  I think to myself, "well, that's what I would probably do if I was him," so I call.  He rolls over AJ and I lose.

Poker Bots

Here is a comprehensive article about writing poker bots.  Basically, a rules-based bot can break even at the tables and earn $80k in a year on rakebacks and player points.
 
http://www.codingthewheel.com/archives/how-i-built-a-working-online-poker-bot-2
 
If you had 10 of these going, that's $800k/year, and you don't even have to make money at the tables.
 
I'm assuming most people know more about this than me, but I really like the "collusion server".  Then again, it seems like the best thing for the bots to do is break even for as long as they can, which is good for the humans.  It is unlikely that anyone with a winning bot would actually *want* to win...except to be able to prove that they can do it.  I'm guessing that latter motivation may keep people from doing the smart thing, which probably means I'm getting my brains beat out by non-humans.

$30 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (7th out of 9 Players)

Very annoying tournament because two people were timing out all the time.  I'm unsure if it affected my decisions or not.

Never really got anything interesting going.  Wound up crippling myself on a bluff like an idiot.

May 16, 2008, 11AM: Played 40 minutes, Made $75.00 at Full Tilt Poker
$22 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (1st out of 9 Players)

Doubled up on QQ vs 88 preflop
Raised to 250 UTG with 33, got reraised to 600 -- called just to check-fold the flop?
KQ made top two, checked to raiser and he bet big I call, then he checks turn so I go all-in on river.  Should have raised him all-in on flop? How do I get more money that hand?
All in AJ vs 99 flop is AA7 w00t.
Dumb -- got reraised all in pre with KTs -- I...call...and lose to AK? I am aggro.
Win with preflop all in with 66 vs QQ -- flop open-ender and river a straight.
3K vs 77 flop a K
Had to call all in with 25o when I am 4x all stacks 3 handed.  Could not do it twice in a row.
Had to do another one with T7d.  At what point do you call with any two?

$22 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (5th out of 9 Players)

Played very patiently, which makes me happy.  Last had, heard Suzanne coming downstairs so decided to gamble an all-in reraise preflop with A3o.  Of course guy had AK, which is pretty much what I figured.  Sometimes, it's just time to go, though.

May 14, 2008, 9PM: Played 6 minutes, Lost $24.00 at Full Tilt Poker
$22 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (9th out of 9 Players)

Played bad and paid for it.  Getting too aggressive -- too eager for action, especially since I actually don't want to play for very long, as Suzanne will have the kid asleep any minute.

May 10, 2008, 6PM: Played 30 minutes, Lost $56.00 at Full Tilt Poker
$2/4 Texas Hold'em

I would need to see the hands to see if I got any bad breaks.  I know I got some bad rivers, I also know I made my own bed a couple times.

Not even sure what happened.  Hopefully I have hand history.
