December 11, 2007, 7PM: Played 9 hours, 30 minutes, Made $148.00 at Forrests
$2 No-Limit Texas Hold'em

played solid and tight at first and was winning a bit, but somewhere along the line, i loosened up and started playing like a total donkey, calling large raises preflop with less than marginal hands. i was very tired and when i lost my first $200 buyin, i should have left. but i forced myself to stay because this is the only time all week i'll be able to play. i shouldnt let the win mask the fact that i played badly and played for the wrong when i decided to stay, i reloaded for $300, in the game for 500. was actually down to less than $100 but made a very good comeback. we bagan playing 6 and 7 handed, and i won most every pot. my bluffs were well timed and i made several big hands that got paid off. as soon as i got to even, i was about to pick up my stack and run for it, but just then jonny walked in. jonny is the worst player i have ever played with. he bluffs at every pot, no matter what. hes not scared of coordinated board or someone calling him all the way down. if he has 2 cards, he will bet. so he paid everyone else off and i got to be the one to double him up so he could play a little while longer before giving all away again. damn. such easy money and i couldnt get to it. anyway, playing 4 handed at 4am, i make it $7 from utg with 46s. scott and dody call. flop comes 2s3s5s. yes, you read that right, i flopped a straight flush in a 4 handed game. i lead out for $10. it would have looked more suspicious if i had checked. scott calls behind, i put him on a big hand, maybe flopped the nuts. dody calls from bb, hes playing badly, i dont give him credit for much. turn pairs the 3, great card for me. i want to see how strong scott is, so i check. he bets $22, dody checkcalls. at this point i think about it and decide now is as good a time as any to raise. i looks like they both have a hand and want to play, so i make it $65. scott folds. damn. not as strong as i thought. dody moves in for about $120. wish it was more. he has 46o, flopped a straight and pushed in against 3 spades and a paired board. told you he wasnt playing good. nice pot though at the end. i got lucky but i'll take it

December 10, 2007, 11AM: Played 1 hour, 5 minutes, Made $203.30 at Poker Stars
$11.70 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (1st out of 53 Players)

Another seat won, this time to the Sunday Million.
This tourney was a double shootout.  Your 1st table you MUST beat everyone.
Thanks to Nate pointing out my heads up weakness and working on it with me for about a whole 10 minutes I have improved head up 200%.
- Was extremely patient in both these tournaments I won seats in. 
- I was not trying to be tricky raising early with 67s and shit like that.
- I was not confrontational with good pre-flop raisers, I just got out of their way
- If I did have a hand I was going to play pre-flop most of the time I did not re-raise the original raiser like I usually would do with the marginal of the strong hands, ex AQs, AK, 99, TT
- I mucked small pairs in early position once the tables were tightened down
- I was paying attention to how everyone was playing
- I was taking notes to keep that attention
- I took advantage of calling station and maniacs
- I avoided other "solid" players
- I worked with the stronger of the players near the end to chip away at the weak ones
- I kept my emotions calm when I did take a beat
- I layed down hands like AK, JJ and QQ preflop as I did not need to risk my whole stack at that time and had zero chips in the pot
- I was in a great state of mind to play

December 8, 2007, 2PM: Played 6 hours, Made $210.00 at Limelight
$3 No-Limit Texas Hold'em

Small stack goes all in, i have straight draw, and flush draw so I call $30 and there's another caller.  There's about $130 in pot, and the river comes A.  I now have a pair with 4 kicker, but missed flush/straight draws.  One player is already all in, and I check and opponent bets $25.  He has to have A with bigger kicker or already hit two pairs.  I know that he knows that he has to beat the all in player.  So I fold and to my surprise, he takes this $25 side bet and folds immediately and lets the other guy take the pot.  Very very strange play and come to find out he knows the other player.  I should have called the floor, but I'm not sure there's much recourse for that type of collusion.
All in all, a good night, but did chase a bit too much at end of night.  Was up $750 as one point.

"More Stats" - What is working/What is not

I just got done reviewing my "more stats" overall and for the last 30 days.  For those that do not know this feature you can see what, where, hours etc.
For me, since I play different games, levels and tournaments on primarily two sites it is important to look at "what is working and what is not".
My conclusion is on Poker Stars I should stick with tournaments, specifically PLO when available and then Texas Hold'em.  On FullTilt I should stay clear of tournaments and concentrate specifically on lower limit Pot Limit Omaha games.
This was very blatant when I compared hours played with money won/lost.  I fight with myself though and think, "why can't I do well on Full Tilt tournamnents but do well on Poker Stars?" Bottom line, it doesn't matter.
Stick with what is working!
So I suggest to any of you who have mulitple things going on to view your "more stats", analyze it and make the appropriate changes.  For those happy with your success, don't change much but take a peek.
For those that are just playing the same game, limit and location and feel they are struggling, try and vary up your games.  Try new places and game types, online and live.  Find where you win and keep going at it.
Just my thoughts, happy hunting.
btw - just watched "Lucy You", not to fond of poker movies but this one was very realistic with "real" poker people involved, anyone that has spent time in Vegas or LA will recognize many of the people, not just the pros.

$3 No-Limit Texas Hold'em

YahoO!! I think I found my game again! I'm not playing scared money, finally.  Again I chose not to bring out the iPOD and I think this helped.  I chatted a lot, and played more aggressively.  I think the combination of 1- being my natural chatty self without my iPOD, 2- not being on scared money, and 3- having just finished antonio esfandiari's book I feel like i'm playing better.  I went through in my head hand from the night to try and see where I could have played anything better, and there really weren't any situations I thought that to be true.  I'm happy, I'm winning, and I'm going to Vegas in a few days! :-D

November 30, 2007, 6PM: Played 7 hours, Made $945.00 at Harrah's New Orleans
$5 No-Limit Texas Hold'em

got tired of sitting around waiting for hands in the 1/2 game and took a big risk by putting alot of my bankroll on the line in this 2/5 game. i buyin for the table max $500 and am the short stack. but i picked up a couple good sized pocket pairs right off the bat and ended up doubling with KK on a 994Q board. i checkraised the turn and he called with i dunno what, but he missed and i win. played like a rock and just kept adding to my stack bit by bit. one hand i am proud of: raised in early position with AJs, which is a little loose for how i'd been playing, got called by a new player who bought in for $1500 and by the button, a player who was in for several buyins cuz he wasnt afraid to bluff in any spot. flop comes 2h8hQc. i totally miss and check, new guy checks, bluffer bets $40. right then, i decided that i was gonna win this pot, so i called to set up a bluff. to my surprise, new guy calls too. turn is Qd. check to bluffer, he bets $100. this is my spot. i checkraise to $350, which is a pretty good bit of my stack. new guy folds (whew!) and bluffer thinks about it before reluctantly folding. nice! but i think i may have had the best hand anyway with ace high. who knows but i'm not complaining. i'll take it and needed this one.

December 1, 2007, 12PM: Played 6 hours, Made $412.00 at Harrah's New Orleans
$2 No-Limit Texas Hold'em

this is a $600 loss, if you can believe it. won several very big hands with overpairs vs top pair. always nice when the best hand holds up. was in for 200 and had over 1200 at one point when the tide turned. this one older guy beat me in every hand he played. we had been playing together for awhile and i had a pretty good read on the way he played differnt type hands. one hand, with J8d, i flop top pair and a flush draw. OG checks, i bet big he calls another guy calls. i know he is on diamonds too and figure to not have the best hand if they hit. turn bricks off. OG checks. i bet big again and this time get raised by the other guy. he made a straight. OG smooth calls a raise and reraise. i know he has nut diamond draw. i call too. (i just realized that calling was a mistake. i draw to the flush to beat the guys strt, but if OG is in too there is no way i can take down this pot. i should have raised big to get him off or just let it go. damn hindsight.) river is diamond. OG leads out. we both crying call. nuts.
the big hand that got me was this: OG limps middle position. folds to me on button. i make it $17 with aces. he thinks about folding, but calls. flop Kc8d9c. he leads out for $25. i put him on a king, maybe flopped 2 pair or a set. i make it $90, mostly to find out where he is in the hand. he only calls, i know i have the best hand. he doesnt slow play. turn is 5h. he cheks, i bet big, $200 into $221 pot. he calls. now i know he doesnt have a king. i think that hes probably on a flush draw. then he checks dark and i definitely know hes on clubs. river is 7c. i cant win, so i check behind. he shows me 46c! i scoff and say nice catch. then he tells me that i played the hand badly and that i had no idea where i was in the hand! what?! are you fucking retarded? i misplayed the hand?! hes the one who called every step when he was behind, even on the turn as a 3:1 dog when i was giving him barely 2:1 to call and then checked when he was ahead. i played badly? no sir, you played badly and got lucky. 6 high flush draw for $200 on the turn. idiot. i was mad and i told him so. i wasnt mad until he made that comment. after that i pretty much let him have it, which i absolutely never do, cuz i understand that playera making mistakes are who i win my money from, so i dont want to run them off. but this guy had a decent game. so for him to say that to me set me off. and later his wife walked up and commented on how big his stack had gotten, so i told her too how big a jackass her husband was...when i realized how mad i was and how i was acting, i decided to cut my losses and make a break for it before i gave away the rest like an idiot.
