January 19, 2008, 4PM: Played 4 hours, 12 minutes, Lost $540.00 at Venitian - Las Vegas
$540 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (58th out of 94 Players)

This is a great tournament, you start with 10k in chips and blinds at 25-50, they progress slowly and you have ample time to play.
 
Doing well with 18K by the break and blinds of 100-200 25ante.
 
I donk off a little less than 5k playing KTs from mid position after 3 playes limp, board comes down KT3 and we all check to the button who bets out 600 into a 1200 pot.  I raise 1500 he eyeballs me in a suspicious manner, looks at my stack and calls, the turn brings a jack and I lead out 3K into a 7K pot.  The guy looks as if he wishes to fold and then moves all in for 5K more.  I can fade his bet and have 8K left if I call.  I think about all the hands he can have and decide he either flopped a set of 3s or hit his gutterball.  At this point the pot is 13K with his bet of 5k means I risk 5K to pick up about 18K.  In retrospect I *could* have called there.  When our table breaks he informs me that he in fact did hit the gutter ball and only drew at it since I had a big stack and he felt I would not let it go.  Although this was a "good laydown" this play is dentramental to my table image, players now think they can run over me.
 
A few hands later I play my QT from the blinds like an idiot.  Two limpers, board comes down 2Q9, I check, bet, call I call.  Turn is X and we all check around, river brings and Ace and I lead out 1500 into a 5K pot.  Bettor folds and button now moves all in for another 6K, if I call this will leave me with about 3K.  The thing is I can't put him on a hand.. had he had a Q he would have bet the turn.  I highly doubt he has A9 or A2 as well since he would not all the flop and if he did would surely bet the turn..  I think for a bit and read him as JT busted draw but just can't have the balls to call for some reason.  I muck and then he shows me JT, ahhh!
 
Move tables now... donk in seat 3 has about 80K and according to the table is on fire.  He tried to raise pre but forgets to announce it as he throws in a 1K chip.  5 poeple limp and I look at AA in the SB, I raise 3K and the pot is about 3500.  No one calls!!! Not only that but the table warns me I'm lucky he did not call as he is on fire and busting everyone with anything.
 
Next hand on the button with AQs, again 5 limpers.  I limp, BB goes all in, UTG goes all in, both for about the size of the call so opening up the option to re-raise, the whole feild calls and it is on me.  I hesitate to move all in isolate the all-ins as who knows who might call.
I take the cheap flop and see A93 rainbow, agro lucky donk bets out 3K, everyone folds to me and I have 7K left.  I flat call, turn is X and he puts me all in.  I call and show AQ, he has 89 second pair and the all ins have 77 (two outs) and 46s(drawing dead).  9 comes on the river, busted me and two others.. he is running hot.  I can't ask for a better situation though to have a 35K stack though.
 
Would like to get into more tourneys live and work on my image and go with my reads more strongly.

January 19, 2008, 4PM: Played 1 hour, 54 minutes, Lost $130.00 at Venitian - Las Vegas
$130 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (3rd out of 10 Players)

Single table sat, top two win seats to the $550 event.
 
Got down to 3 handed with a total of 15k in play.  I had about 4k, guy on right 9k and guy on left 2k. 
 
They stack off and 2k doubles up with A2 vs big stacks AT when he makes a wheel, thought I had it locked up but.. now we are at 4k, 4k and 7k.
 
I let the blinds move around a bit in hopes that the SB get out of line with the big stack BB and goes broke, doesn't happen.
 
In the SB with AT off against the other short stack.  I decide to limp since he is "easily" outplayed post flop and tends to agro out all in if you raise pre.
 
Blinds are 200/400 and he raises another 800.  I decide to call and see Axx flop.  I check and he bets enough to commit himself if I raise.  I decide if he has me beat oh well, so be it and move all in, he says, "you have that ace?" and then calls with QQ only to spike on the end leaving me with a measley 300.  In BB next hand and go broke :(

January 18, 2008, 6PM: Played 1 hour, Lost $50.00 at Hooter's
$50 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (27th out of 42 Players)

Felt good about my table.  Didn't get out of line.  Took a tough beat for about half my chips with A/K suited against K/Q suited(K/Q floped a flush).  About six hands later under the gun moved all-in for a little more than I had.  Looked down at wired queens, didn't really like it, but couldn't get away from it.  UTG turned over kings, no improvement, and that was that.
  Kyle and I are covering the other ones buy in when we play together when one of us cashes for a fair amount.  It helped him out the other day and tonight he took third so it came back around.  Fun stuff.  So while I waited for him I thought I'd check out the live game...

January 18, 2008, 8PM:
Call me superstitous...

Not sure that there's been any real level of concern over my lack of daily entries... I was playing a shit load in October and November, but started to run cold. 
 
At first I started to blame it on blogging, kind of like having a shirt be unlucky... so, I did the SMART thing.  No, I didn't take a break, I just stopped blogging.
 
Kept playing, whittled my online account down a fair bit... so once December hit, I stopped playing online except for the random day to give myself a break and concentrate on finishing school.
 
Fellow player on here staked me a few times at live games, and that was the only way I was really getting money for rent and random out nights.
 
I finally got my bachelor's in Journalism in December and have been happily unemployed since.  I've been gradually picking up the online play more, but I'm reallllly encountering a lot of variance... both in my play and the cards.
 
Live I was running relatively well and getting paid off on semi-decent hands, so I kept getting staked... but the last three times I've sat down have ended pretty poorly... so, kind of on the look out for something part-time to fund the poker as well as kill time until I get a "real" job.
 
So... basically I stopped blogging because I blamed it for me running bad.  Smart, I know.
 
If you'll have me back, I'll eagerly run my post count up a ridiculous amount.

January 18, 2008, 1PM: Played 2 hours, Lost $32.00 at Ringo's
$32 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (9th out of 33 Players)

So close to three cashes in a row.  Made the final table with 7500 in chips.  Blinds are 1000/2000.  A couple hands in I move all-in under the gun with pocket 10's.  Everyone folds to the big blind who calls what he has(4500)with pocket aces.  Flop a ten and river another one to lay a tough beat on the BB.
  Now, smiling with 13,000 in chips, the next hand I'm in the Big Blind with wired Kings.  Two under the gun raises to four thousand, everyone folds, I push all-in.
  Other people at the table try to bait him into calling, saying it's just a fraction of what he had(not really true, but whatever).  I'm telling the guys "don't talk him into it!", praying for a call.  He states aloud that he thinks it's a race before finally, after a few minutes, calling.
  Proudly, I flip over my kings and and he turns over a pair of 3's.  Flop came a 3 with no more help for the good guy.  He apoligizes for the beat.  "It's all good" I tell him.  What goes around comes around, I guess.

December 31, 2007, 11AM: Played 2 hours, Lost $255.00 at Limelight
$3 No-Limit Texas Hold'em

Lost 220 on AA vs KK, and was actually thinking of laying the KK down preflop.  I just knew the guy had AAs, but realized during the hand that I'd be foolish to EVER lay down KK preflop.  I slow play, and he raises in small blind to $20, so I raise back to $60.  He raises me another $75, so obviously he's ready to put it all in right there.  He wasn't on tilt, as a matter of fact, he was playing pretty solid poker and had accumulated over $500.  I put him on AA or QQ and said to myself that I'm never going to lay down KK preflop, so I just went all in and he called immediately.  Oh well, those all even out in the long run.

$0.10 No-Limit Texas Hold'em

Even though I made a little more than a buy-in, I'm still a little disappointed. I was up 2.5 buy-ins, then had a few coolers that knocked me down. Oh well...still a good win....Here are some of the big pots:

$2 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (432nd out of 975 Players)

Got some $ transferred to me on stars so i played this $2 tourney...really weird hand went down when i was still at about my starting stack:
 
5 limps, and i check in BB with 95...Flop=T95 rainbow...i bet 400 (pot was 300) and get two calls and then a guy shoves for 1700...i thought for a min but folded thinking one guy had to have a set or T9....the all in got one call from the 87! the shover had Q5!!!!!!! so that left me in trouble and i couldn't double.
 
i know this was just one tourney but the play that i saw was much worse than full tilt from what i could tell.  i am looking forward to putting in a few more tourneys over there to see what happens.

$200 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (14th out of 207 Players)

i raise from cutoff with Q8d to 1600, bb min raises to 3200 and i have to call. flop comes QQ9. he leads in for same 3200, i move in for $21000 more and he calls! he calls with ATd. what are you doing dude? thanks for the gift. once i got some chips i was again super agro. we played with 19-23 player left, money bubble, for a long time and i won almost 2 out of every 7 hands. once in the money, i made bad/amibitious call with KQh vs TT in a monster pot. i bricked off. if i win that pot, i know without a doubt i go on to win. several hands later, i move in with A6d for 9 bb's. bb wakes up with JJ. busto. disappointed. my tournament game is on right now!
