July 9, 2008, 7PM: Played 1 hour at The Village Club
$3 No-Limit Texas Hold'em

I love it when you don't even win one freaken hand in the night! I was going to short buy back in for 50 dollars because I was tilting based on the fact that I did not win a hand and the prettiest hand I saw all night was K J suited (spades). But I decided to suck up my loses and leave.

July 7, 2008, 6AM: Played 10 hours at The Village Club
$3 No-Limit Texas Hold'em

Another winning session at The Village Club. Up the last four times I have played poker. "The Banker" is back in business baby! I was down to my last 40 bucks and pushed all in on the dealer button. Doubled up. Pushed all in again when i Flopped top pair, two callers! One with flush draw and one drunk "Donk" with a gut shot. No bad beat and won a good amount there.
I went to the final table where degenerate gambler "Chung" was the chip leader. I hit a good hand against him and he paid me off. I was up to 220 at one point. Once again tried to out play him by bluffs in two different pots but both hands he pushed all in and would show me a J high bluff and the other one was a 5 high bluff. After bluffing away 120 to him I promised myself I wouldn't try to bluff the donk anymore!
Since I am playing more aggressive now I'm beginning to push all in preflop and push people around and off their hands. I had pocket 8's and took down a good pot when I limped all in. Got one short stack caller preflop with KQ suited. Didn't hit so that was an extra 40 bucks.
Another aggressive winning play I did was when Chung was to 35 and got one caller. I had AK off suit from the dealer button and pushed all in for about 140. He called and I flopped a set of kings. Last hand I won for the night. I played for about an hour after that but never won a hand. I decided to leave at 4 in the morning up 120 bucks. I figured I didn't want to lost it all and hey I still more then doubled my money! Once again, aggressive poker is winning poker!

July 5, 2008, 10PM at Marco's condo
$0.25/0.50 Texas Hold'em

My family, friends and I went over to my cousin Marco's condo to watch the UFC fights. After The fights we played some .25 .50 cent blinds 7 handed. I bought in for 25 dollars. I enjoyed this level a blind because I learned how to play aggressive poker. I won 24 dollars, so i practicality doubled up. Once again I have seen that aggressive poker is winning poker!

July 4, 2008, 10PM: Played 2 hours, 30 minutes at The Village Club
Texas Hold'em

Let me just start off by saying "The Banker" is back in business! I had a very lovely fourth of July coming up big at the village. The first good sized pot I won was when I had pocket Queens on the big blind. I re raised and got it down two heads up (exactly what i wanted). The board came 8 K 8. I checked and the guy I was heads up with looked down at his cards, and shoved his rack in with the rest of his chips, which was a little over pot size. I told myself if a A or K flopped I would lay down "The ladies". But something told me I had the best hand. If this "Donk" really had a King would he really push all in like that? What was he scared of, an Ace turning? but wait he would love that if he had AK like he was claiming to have. Plus the way he shoved it in had bluff written all over it. Something was screaming to me AQ, AJ, or smaller pocket pair. So I looked at him and said "I got the best hand, I call" and flipped over my Queens. He looked at me and said, "How the hell do you call that, there's a King out there!" At the end he flipped over pocket Jacks and said "Horrible call". I looked at him and said, "If you wouldn't have played it so horribly I honestly would of folded, thanks for the chips!" I laughed as I took in the pot! Wow you should of seen his face....Priceless! Set his ass on major tilt! Gotta love it!
A few hands later a guy on "Tilt" pushed all in pre flop for 40 dollars. I pushed all in for 140 on the dealer button with pocket Kings. I thought he didn't have anything to good but to my surprise he had Queens. No bad beat and went to the final table with 180 bucks.
A couple hands in I get pocket Queens under the gun. I limp of course and "Chung" (a degenerate gambler that works at the village) makes it 25 dollars to go. the big blind calls the 25 dollars. Hes the chip leader with about 1000 dollars behind. Figuring I'm happy with the 60 dollar pot I limp ALL IN on these two degenerate gamblers! Chung says I think I have the best hand. And I tried to talk him out of it because it was 155 dollars more to him. I told him to just let go of his AK and I would show him my cards after I fold. But after he thought about it for about 1 minute he said you got AK or pocket 10's, I call! Then the chip leader big blind cried for a while and told me that I have pocket Six's and that I was trying to steal the 60 bucks. After about a minute he threw over A 10 suited and said I fold the best hand. I quickly flopped over Queens and Chung kept his cards face down. The flop came A 10 blank and the big blind started to yell and complain! HA HA HA. Then the river came a King. So I was like shit he at least has A or K I'm screwed. Chung flips over JJ and says good hand I thought you had 10's or lower or AK. HA HA HA. What a donk! I play super super tight, I at least have to have QQ or KK for me to make that move. As for the big blind well I was raking in the HUGE put and he was bitching, I said "Thanks for making a horrible fold"! He almost flips out and says hes going after me and that he's going to make me go broke....
My final hand I won was with AK of hearts. The chip leader that was "out to get me" made it 12 to go. I smooth called hoping to "flop it big". There was 4 of us in the hand with a 50 dollar pot. board came K 10 Blank. I checked, ready to check raise the chip leader who always c-bets the flop when he raises pre flop. Everyone checks to him as planned and he makes it 15 to go. I don't slow play my top pair top kicker and check raise to 50 bucks. Everyone folds and the sick bastard calls cause hes "out to get me". Turn comes a blank and at this point I have a lot behind and he covers me so I was "Playing scared" so I checked to see what he would do. He bet out 40 dollars, and I just called. I was a bit scared he might have two pair. River came another King. So i thought, well only thing that beats me is a full house and if he did have two pair with no King, hes screwed now. So I made a value bet of 50 dollars on the river and he called me with K 9 of club. I flipped over my AK and said, "Send it"! After that hand I only played a few more hands cause I was already up three times my buy in which most pros suggest you leave and be happy with your winnings. So I'm very proud of myself I was able to get up and walk away 420.00 dollars up! Back in the positive baby!

July 3, 2008, 11PM at Big T's (Tony) Home
$0.5/1 Texas Hold'em

So I started playing poker at Big T's home in the beautiful neighborhood of Otay Ranch. Before we play cash games we play a sit and go tournament ranging from 18-30 players. I hate sit and gos because I believe its a "Crap Shoot" once the blinds become large in the later part of the small MTT (Multi Table Tournament). Because of this I decided to no longer play in them because it's a waste of 20 bucks, based on the fact there's little skill involved and more based on luck.
After the MTT we played a friendly .50 cent - 1 dollar cash game. I bought in for 25 dollars which was the average everyone was buying in for. I enjoy the home games for multiple reasons. One reason being that there's no rake! Two because the blinds are lower so I get to play more hands and play a different style I play at a casino level. I get to play way more aggressive and bluff a lot more. Three the people who play do not play no where near as much as people play in the casino and as much as I play. I feel nobody comes close to as good as I am at home games.
Basically it was a good night for me. I bought in for 25 dollars and ended up leaving with 4 times my buy in (100 dollars). I did this all within two hours of play. Pretty impressive if you ask me. I feel I really needed this win due to the fact I am down for the month of June. Got to love 75 dollar profit!

July 1, 2008, 6PM at The Village Club
Texas Hold'em

Hopefully this will be first of many online blogs. I've been playing poker for approximately 3 years now. About a two years ago I started playing 2-3 no limit at The Village Club in Chula Vista. I started with 50 dollars for my first buy in and within six months of playing I turned it into 4,000 dollars. Not quite bad if you ask me. I remember in two weeks of playing I won 7 times in a row! People began to consider me a very skilled player. I even got the nickname "The Banker" by a degenerate gambler named James that played with me everyday. He said he nicknamed me "The Banker" because I always had all the money on the table.
I took a break from poker for about a year but now I'm back. I wanted to start a Poker Blog to see how much I was winning or losing. I started writing down my wins and losses since June 2008. My friend Christian (Model Mercado) and I both agreed to start from June 2008. We both had a ruff start with myself being down -198 for the month and Mercado down -300. Hopefully I make a comeback....and well for Mercado...hopefully he actually gets a bankroll so he can have money to make a comeback! HA HA HA. More to come.....
