I went heads up with an opponent that was LAG. I continuation bet to see where he stood. He called. When the turn came i thought he might have had a king and a check raise for me, but i decided to stay as the aggressor anyway. No where in my mind did i think he might have had J,T. The right thing for me to do instead of going all in was fold. I wasn't paying attention to the possible straight. I still would've had almost 20BB if I folded. Durrrr...

Played 2 hours
at Green Valley Ranch
$2/4 Texas Hold'em
Ryan took me out and payed for my $50 buy-in at Green Valley Ranch. It was my third time to play live in a Casino and I had my best results. I came out EVEN! Not bad, playing around a bunch of experienced old people.
I started off playing very tight, only using the top 10-15 starting hands to begin with. That way I didn't loose ustarting hand A,Q I misplayed them after the turn. Flopped A,Q,7 all hearts, and I didnt have a single heart. I got flushed out at the end. I wasn't even looking at suites. One thing I realized was that flushes were winning big pots at that table. I won 3 big pots by playing high, mid, and low suited cards after flopping 2 cards of the same suite.
I started categorizing players and characterized their player styles so I can read them better. There were rocks, jackals, lions, elephants, and mice. It was intriguing to see how many different styles could play. Ryan is a Jackal trying to look like a Lion. He starts of strong but starts to flake out at the end.
I played very tight to start then I loosened up later to win some pots. I picked up on peoples tells and betting pattern so I can use them next time.
VERY OLD PEOPLE ARE HARD TO READ WHEN THEYRE SHAKING.
If I'm going to get good, I need to read Mike Carro's book on tells. Phil Helmuth's book on tells will be good after, and his book that I'm reading now really helped out tonight.
I came out even winning no money, but it wasn't mine to begin with. I got a lot of valuable information and experience, now I feel like I can play for REAL live.

Played 1 hour, 20 minutes
Free-Roll No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (207th out of 5000 Players)
This is the farthest I've gone in a Freeroll. I need to learn when to fold in the middle game.
I was very aggressive to start and I was lucky to get good starting hands. I did a good job staying about average and watching the blinds as they go up.
I got beat by playing a Ah4h (weak kicker) against a short stacked player going all in and also vs the chip leader on the table. It was a mistake for me to go all-in when I didnt hit anything on the flop. I should've let the chip leader take him out. I wasn't paying attention to all the players in the hand.
