$2 No-Limit Texas Hold'em

Not really Carom Cafe, but I don't feel like making a new location for this place, bc I'm never going back there ever again.
$10/hr time charge for $1/$2 NL? Get the fuck out of here. Plus tipping? Fuck that.

June 27, 2010, 12AM: Played 5 hours at Borgata
$10 No-Limit Texas Hold'em

Had [Jc 2c] on a [9c 10c 9s][Qc] board and called an all-in and lost to [10 9], who flopped it.
I'm starting to learn from experience, when players at these stakes bet very, very big like $1000 over or go all-in instantly, they have it 99% of the time.
These past few weeks of playing $5/$10 NL, I've been making some big calls in situations where either the villain has it or they are bluffing with 2nd best, and in all of those spots, the villain has turned out to have it.
About 3 weeks ago, I got re-raised all-in instantly on a 3 suit flop when I flopped the jack-high flush, and I reluctantly laid it down – it was really, really, really hard to lay that down. Yuya has been saying I should've called, but now that I know how these players like to go all-in instantly when they have it, I feel a lot better about that laydown now.
If it wasn't for busting out in this session, I would've had a very good weekend poker wise. I made some sick calls this weekend and overall, I was really satisfied with my play.
Maybe next weekend, I'll walk away from the Borgata being 100% satisfied with my play.

Finally won a decent amount at this location. I just put on my headphones and blocked out all the distractions and played TAG style.
Feels good to finally win.

$10 No-Limit Texas Hold'em

The Biggest Pot I've Ever Won:
Middle position is a loose Asian player, and he opens preflop to $55. Player in the cutoff calls, and I'm sitting on the button with [Q Q]. I decide flat call here and not 3-bet preflop. This invites 4 more callers, and we are 6way going to the flop. Pot is at $330.
Flop comes [7d 2s Qd]. I flopped the nuts.
Checks around to the preflop raiser, who bets $200. Cutoff folds. I knew he had overpair here, because I don't think he would bet jacks or underpair or bluff into a 6way pot. This guy was definitely going to pay me off with overpair, bc of his loose style. I didn't want to raise too much and scare him off either, so I raise to $450.
Big blind starts to take his time and count out his stack, and I'm thinking, "No way, he flopped a set too? My luck can't be this good..." After a minute of thinking, he shoves for $3000+. Preflop raiser insta-calls (he has about $4000+ behind), and I obviously shove all-in (I have about $2800-ish).
Turn 3s. River 4c. Preflop raiser showed [A A], and BB showed [2d 3d]. I had exactly $2930, so I tripled up plus winning the $330 already in the pot and took down a $9120 pot... Unreal.
I was talking to the BB, bc I bumped into him at the cashier, and his thought process on shoving was very interesting. He said that basically he is representing a set there with his shove, so most of the time, he will get overpair or 1 pair to fold. Secondly, his shove is likely to get higher flush draws to lay down, so in the chance he gets called, his flush draw is most likely live. Against an overpair, he has a lot of outs, and at worst, against a set, he has a standard flush draw. Interesting thought process. I suppose in that sense, it's +EV to shove there. Unfortunately for him, he ran into the nuts. ;)
Ok, besides that one amazing hand that I will remember for a very long time and the fact that I did very well, the truth of the matter is I could've won even more had I played better. It feels nice to have a session like this, obviously, but I left a lot more profit out there, and I could've been up $9k or even $10k possibly had I not made some bad calls, bad bluffs, or basically, played better.
$5/$10 NL is certainly a learning experience for me, and I'm learning as I go along. Hopefully, in the future, I'll be able to say I was 100% satisfied with a session at $5/$10, but as for this session, even though I was up $6000+, I can't say I was 100% satisfied with my play, honestly.

$10 No-Limit Texas Hold'em

Bought in for $1955 and lost, then bought in for another $2000.
At one point, I was sitting with about $2800-ish, and there was this maniac/fish sitting one seat to the right of me. I had position on him, and I was waiting to pick him off.
The maniac/fish cracked this Asian kid's [K K], so the Asian kid was steaming and raising $50, $60, $70, $75, $80 every single hand. Literally, every single hand.
So, the fish limps, I limp with [Kc 9c], and the Asian kid makes it $60 to go. Fish calls, and I call. Flop comes [3d 3s 9d]. Fish checks, I check, and the Asian kid expectedly c-bets in position to $50, which was quite the underbet. Fish calls, and I bump it up to $200. Asian kid folds, and then the fish starts talking a little bit and re-raises all-in (he has me covered).
On paper, it sounds obvious that he has a 3 here, but he was playing so loose and wild prior to this – for example: 1) calling down the preflop raiser all the way to the river with a pair of 4s; 2) check-raising all-in on a [J 10 8] flop with [A 9] and rivering the ace (this was the hand where he cracked [K K]). Example #2 is like 90% of the reason why I eventually called his all-in. He showed he was very capable of check-raising all-in with a draw, and what can I say... I took a chance. He ended up showing down [3 6], and I got stacked.
