February 2, 2008, 7AM: Played 4 hours, 48 minutes, Lost $2,028.00 at Bellagio - Las Vegas
$30/60 Omaha Hi-Lo

This is a painful post.. mostly because I was up $700 in the first hour of play and was expecting a nice win.
This game primarily played 40/80, it was pretty much like playing 4/8 but with $10 chips.  Although 2k sounds like a lot it is only 2 racks and this game plays very very aggressively.
What went wrong? The same thing that happened in the 10/20 game at the Wynn, the "lifetime non folding losing players" called and called and drew out.  It was their night to torchure me.  I have to admit, I did play two hands poorly post flop that cost me about $400.
These games you can win or lose a lot quickly.  A friend sat in the game and within 45 minutes was up over 3k off of only a few pots.
Although these games are "ideal" because there is so much dead money there is a differene and comes a point.  This is when there are so many bad players and they are playing ultra aggressively and not being calling stations like they normally are.  You have to pay through the teeth for draws and you MUST make the nuts EVERYHAND, even when you flop top set with a straight draw(say you have KKQT, with a board of KJ5) there are no safe cards unless you make your hand.  Every combination of running straights and flushes are chasing you down and won't fold, they don't care how much you raise or how much it costs, if they can think of two perfect cards to come that will give them even 1/2 the pot they are there.
I guess this means I have to decide if I want to play in these types of games and risk the money or not.

February 2, 2008, 7AM: Played 2 hours, 6 minutes, Lost $240.00 at Bellagio - Las Vegas
$240 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (4th out of 10 Players)

Satalite for the 1K NLH tourney.. top two get seats.. was great in chips from the word go.
Then since they needed the table for the tourney soon the floorman cut the time almost in half (we already were playing 20 min leves, now just 10) and it turned into a crap shoot.
15K in total chips, guy on left has 6K, the rest of us have 2K each.  Blinds are 300/600 or 400/800 and are about to go up to 500/1000 next hand.  I'm sitting in the SB with 33 when the button min raises and looks weak.  If I fold I have a little bit more than 2K and am certain any BB will call my all in.  I figure it is a coin toss here when I move all in *IF* the button calls.  I shove, BB folds and buttons thinks and is leaning towards a muck but knows he can't since he overcommitted himself.  Then the silly dealer colors up our bets in the middle of the hand (I re-raised all black, $100 chips, so it would look like more than it really is) The player realized it is not that much in comarision with the pot and calls with KJ.
That was my only real play to make, half the time I win that pot and the other player is crippled with 1k of his remaining 3K in the BB next hand with the huge stack in the SB, I auto muck, let the SB attack and hope BB folds or calls and goes broke.
They are crap shoots so..

February 2, 2008, 7AM: Played 7 hours, 36 minutes, Lost $988.00 at Wynn - Las Vegas
$10/20 Omaha Hi-Lo

This was one of those cap cap cap 8 way games...
It was so insane, one pot reached around $1900! The average pot was >$500.
I could not hold a hand nor hit a draw.  One of those nightmare situations.  The one time I did have a winner for a $800 pot the bettor fires and my neighbor check raises the river when the straight card hit and the board is paird already, making it almost impossible for me to overcall.  Had he mucked his check raise bluff I call the bettor and win the pot.  Instead the bettor wins this pot with a pair of 8s.  The check raiser had the right read but for a pot that large there is NO WAY he wasn't going to call with any pair.  The raiser had Ace high!
Terrible roller coaster session..

February 1, 2008, 8PM: Played 2 hours, 18 minutes, Lost $330.00 at Wynn - Las Vegas
$330 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (17th out of 24 Players)

I was off today... you start with a ton of chips and a ton of time.. but I had two very very aggressive players on my left, both women.  One would most always raise 3xs BB and the next one would re-raise her about 25% of the time.  So no limp trapping people with garbage.. they both also continuation bet 99% of the time.  I was frozen and only could play ABC poker.  I did however take a few chances by limping with anything, letting one of them on my left raise, get 2-5 callers and then re-raising the feild a huge amount.. although this was very dangerous my table image was very tight and the one was fairly easy to read.
Long story short I made a critical mistake that cost me.  I pretty much underbet the trun one had with a straight and flush draw 5 way when no one showed any interest in the pot.  This allowed the Ax flush draw to call, so when the flush hit.. I trapped myself, had I bet more he would have folded as he barely called my weak bet then.

February 1, 2008, 6AM: Played 4 hours, 36 minutes, Lost $180.00 at Venitian - Las Vegas
$180 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (7th out of 35 Players)

This tournament I started off a bit rough.  Grinding my short stack and just played my best poker ever.  My reads were dead on, I felt players interest in a pot before I tried stealing blinds avoiding me trouble, felt and acted on weakness.
Paid top 6, once when we were down to 14 players I was in a bit of trouble with a chance.  Everyone was so concerned about making the final table (even though only 7 get paid) that they froze up and the blinds were for the taking.  It was perfect as I had 3 short stacks on my left and two big guys on my right.  Even though they had large stacks they too were rocks and didn't play back so on occasion I'd pull the "steal UTG" move.
Now we are down to 12 players with 3 very short stacks, so I backed off as any minute they are going to call a raise all in with any King or Ace.  (something else that was important to know was the final table amount of players, 9 or 10 handed)
Short stacks go broke and now we are final table and I am about 5th in chips and sitting great in seat position.  We grind down to 7 of us quickly and now no one wants to make a mistake.
This is where I go broke.  Since everyone was so afraid of calling a raise pre most would either muck or move all in.  I get AA UTG and make a standard raise, all in boy shoves and barely has me covered, rolls over JJ and busts me.  Although this really sucked it was a great opportunity that *most of the time* ends up me being chip leader and JJ boy all in next blind.
I could not have played any better.

February 1, 2008, 10PM: Played 3 hours, Made $1.20 at Absolute Poker
Texas Hold'em

Played in a few very low stakes (.50+.10) sit and go tournaments tonight. Won my first one. No real hands worth mentioning, I was just very proud of staying focused and not letting myself go on tilt after a couple of bad hands. I will say that I thought it was cool that the last hand of my first sit and go was a straight flush.
Second one ended quickly with me placing 8 out of 9.
I was back on my game in the third. Took 3rd out of 9.
I realize that these are just pennies and quarters but unfortunately my finances are a little slow so it's baby steps towards building my bankroll.

February 1, 2008, 3PM:

This game is still in play, I'm curious for a reaction or two.
Seat 1: Steveinho (1,805)
Seat 2: MAMU13 (1,805)
Seat 3: BastianBooger (1,315)
Seat 4: ZCHIPMAGNETZ (1,140)
Seat 5: cocofran18 (1,465)
Seat 6: maiore (1,470)
Steveinho posts the small blind of 20
MAMU13 posts the big blind of 40
The button is in seat #6
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to Steveinho [8h 9h]
BastianBooger folds
cocofran18 raises to 80
maiore folds
Steveinho calls 60
MAMU13 calls 40
*** FLOP *** [7s 4h 5h]
Steveinho checks
Now, let me just open by saying that I was hoping for a continuation bet here, because I planning on semi-bluffing with a big raise, and committing myself if anyone else came over the top.
Gutterball straight-draw in addition to my flush draw seemed lovely enough to get my money involved with.  Best case scenario, all fold... worst case, I'm in with a pretty damn good drawing hand.
MAMU13 has 15 seconds left to act
MAMU13 checks
cocofran18 checks
*** TURN *** [7s 4h 5h] [Tc]
Steveinho checks
MAMU13 checks
cocofran18 folds
Steveinho calls 320
Okay, it was a pot bet... I'm putting him on a pair of 10s.  I'm just looking for my draw to hit at this point.  It might not be a good money play, but it was too temping to lay down now that I was open-ended.
MAMU13 raises to 1,600
ZCHIPMAGNETZ calls 740, and is all in
Steveinho has 15 seconds left to act
Steveinho has requested TIME
My process is, if I hit my hand... it is definitely the best hand... if a 6 or a J hits, my straight is best... and I don't think either has a flush draw... so I'm saying to myself that, at best, I have 15 outs... at worst, a heart or a jack are gone... I'm thinking that, worst case, I'm looking at 12-13 outs.
I know the raise has to be a set, or a straight... I leaned towards straight, but didn't put set out of the equation.
So, it's still the same thing, hand hits... I win... hand misses, I lose.
I put the money in to get a huge stack early.
Steveinho: god, i'm behind, but i'm getting odds
Steveinho raises to 1,725, and is all in
MAMU13 calls 125, and is all in
Steveinho shows [8h 9h]
MAMU13 shows [3c 6d]
ZCHIPMAGNETZ shows [9c Td]
*** RIVER *** [7s 4h 5h Tc] [Kh]
Steveinho shows a flush, King high
MAMU13 shows a straight, Seven high
Steveinho wins the side pot (1,330) with a flush, King high
ZCHIPMAGNETZ shows a pair of Tens
Steveinho wins the main pot (3,500) with a flush, King high
MAMU13 stands up
Now, I'm not saying I played this hand well... I'm not sure.  Turns out, with his 3-6 straight made, a 2-1 dog, while the retard with 10-9 is drawing dead.

January 30, 2008, 6PM: at Absolute Poker
No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (420th out of 7170 Players)

Tournament started pretty badly but I managed to slow play through the first hour without taking too much damage and winning a couple of pots to keep myself competitive. After taking down a couple of big pots I was able to start playing a big more aggressively staying near the middle in terms of rankings.
The table I was at really let me get away with murder though for a lot of the second hour. No one wanted to call any of my pre flop raises which led to my stack doubling within just a few minutes.
I lost the final hand because I was stupid though. I openly admit that I just plain screwed up and it cost me my stack.
Blinds were at 600/1200. In late position I called the big blind with As5s. Flop came down [9s 5c 2d]. Three players in the pot. Check to me, I checked, last player bet 4800. We both call. Turn is [8d], once again check to start so I figured that my fives with A kicker were probably good since no one had bet more than the big blind (ya see why I called myself stupid?). I tried to steal by betting $4800 of my $16465, got called all around and went all in when the river came [3s]. Called all around again and first player flips over pocket KK.
I had it coming, it was a monumentally stupid play especially after I had seen her slow play AA just a couple of hands earlier.
Lesson learned I think.
Still, I placed in the top 500 out of over 7000. That's a decent showing for someone who is still trying his best to improve his game and earlier this week I placed 91th out of a field of over 7000. I admit that isn't really impressive since they're freeroll tourneys but it's a start.
Do have a question for anyone who is reading this... what are your opinions on rebuys? Do you use them? do you not use them? when do you use them or why don't you use them at all?
