February 22, 2010, 12AM: Played 45 minutes, Made $30.00 at Full Tilt
$1 No-Limit Texas Hold'em

45 minutes, 450 hands, 45 dollars.
 
Most interesting hand was one where I got AIPF for $100 w/ QQ from the small blind vs the big blind.
 
I raised to $3, he 3bet me to $10, I 4bet to $30 and he 5bet shoved for $100.  Having recently done some analysis of AIPF pots in steal wars (specifically for 100NL Rush), I had already decided not to fold queens in steal situations without a read that the villain is especially nitty.
 
He ended up with TT and fortunately my queens held up.
 
Sadly, 450 hands equates to $75 in posted blinds, so there wasn't much overall profit to be had this session.

February 21, 2010, 10PM: Played 4 hours, Made $180.00 at Full Tilt
$1 No-Limit Texas Hold'em

Nothing too spectacular today.  Just grinding it out.  Still trying to get back the rest of my losses from the 200NL experiment.

February 21, 2010, 10PM: Played 2 hours, 30 minutes, Made $250.00 at Full Tilt
$1 No-Limit Texas Hold'em

Fortunately, I didn't lose more than $55 on any single hand.
 
The most interesting hand was one where I got stubborn (read: played badly).  It was his stack size that made me think he was capable of making a play at me.  With 420 BB, He is most likely either a lucky maniac or a good regular, either one capable of 3betting light.
 
On the flop, I decided to float him for a street, and try to rep an overpair or some spades if they came.  If he checks the turn, I plan to fire and hopefully take the hand away from him. 
 
When the K comes on the turn I figure he hit his hand. So, I am actually surprised to see him check behind.  Once he does, I go ahead w/ the plan of repping AK and fire away.  It is probably a bad idea to risk getting check-raised after picking up additional equity from the flush draw, but since I miss more often than I hit and he likely fires any river if check, this seems like my best chance.
 
A check-raise would suck, as I probably priced myself in for the call.  But, fortunately, that didn't happen.

February 20, 2010, 10PM: Played 8 hours, Lost $1,000.00 at Full Tilt
$2 No-Limit Texas Hold'em

I've been playing a lot of 100NL Rush on FTP, and thought I would give 200NL a shot.  Bad Idea.  I dropped about 5 buy-ins w/in 2 days, mostly due to some bad luck.  I am ~$600 below ev, but dropped another $200 w/ KK vs AA and AIPF.
 
So, back to 100NL for now.  Fortunately, I've made back a little over $800 in the last few days there, so it's not all bad.
 
Here are two bad hands.  The first, I lost when the villain rivered a flush vs my boat.  In the second, I folded the nut flush on the river; A play that I still am not sure was best.

February 20, 2010, 1PM: Played 3 hours, Made $240.00 at Lucky Chances
$2 No-Limit Texas Hold'em

Played live for the first time this year.  Didn't do too badly, winning a little over one buy-in.
 
The biggest pot I won was probably one I lucked out on.  I had TT on the button with three limpers ($4 to limp) in front of me.  I chickened out of raising, since I wasn't confident in narrowing the field.  However, the SB raises to $24.  One person calls before it gets to me (the biggest fish, who has lot about $600 so far), so I throw in another $20.  Effective stacks are about $150, which isn't really enough to set mine, but with the additional fish in the pot, and the button, I figured I would make a loose call and see what happened.
 
We go to the flop with roughly $80 in the pot.  Flop comes 653 and the SB bets out $40.  The fish folds and I go into the tank. 
 
I am up about $100 so far, but don't want to lose it all with a mediocre pair have that I can't lay down.  I finally decide that there are enough pocket pairs between 6 and ten, as well as unpaired broadway cards in his range that I was at least calling. 
 
The pot is around $120 and it looks like he has $60 left.  So, after coming very close to just folding, I finally throw in $100 and put him all in, expecting a fold most of the time.  It actually turns out that he has an additional $20 chip I missed, which he also tosses into the pot.  I wasn't really expecting that, but I can't fold for another $20, so I call.
 
(Putting him on a range of 77+, AQ+, KQ gives me about 55% equity on the flop.  Assuming he calls with all pocket pairs, and folds everything else, I have ~65% fold equity and ~40% equity when called.  With $80 in the pot preflop and $240 being added, that's about 38% pot odds.  So, even if his entire range is medium and large pocket pairs, it seems like a reasonable play.)
 
Turns brings an A, which I figure kills my hand.  River is another 5.  He looks at me, saying I probably won.  I turn over my TT and he mucks. I should have waited for him to show first, just to see what he plays this way with, but I guess that's bad etiquette live.
 
Live is a lot different than what I am used to online.  A lot more limping and people playing dominated hands, even for raises.  I am sure it has to do with being the lowest stakes available, and I guess it plays more like .05/.10 NL online than 1/2.

February 19, 2010, 10PM: Played 4 hours, Made $275.00 at Full Tilt
$1 No-Limit Texas Hold'em

Made back some of the money I lost at 200NL
 
The best hand was one where I hit quads vs a set.  This may be the largest pot I've every won at 100NL before. Interestingly, I think I left $170 on the table, as it was fairly clear what hand he held, and I am pretty sure he would have called an overshove on the river.  I am surprised he never raised. 
 
The 6 likely cost me a lot of money, as me holding any Q beat him.  So, he was probably less confident about the hand once the river came.

February 18, 2010, 10PM: Played 1 hour, Made $8,000.00 at Full Tilt
No-Limit Texas Hold'em

Just entering my previous earnings, to make my graph match my bankroll.
 
This is my earnings since April of last year.  About $3,500 of it coming this year, primarily from ~75,000 100NL Rush hands.  The rest of it is mostly from ~150,000 hands of 50NL, played throughout 2009.
