February 8, 2008, 12AM: Played 4 hours, Made $260.00 at Oklahoma Firehall
$1/2 Texas Hold'em

I used to write all the time on here, then I didn't have the time and also was too tired half the time to do it. I deleted all my entries starting off fresh.
I came into the firehall a little after 12 in the morning after seeing Fools Gold at the movies which I reconmend don't see unless a girl forces you to go which happend to me. Two cash games were going on at the time, the super aggro table(where all the action was) all the seats were taken so I got stuck at the sandbox game(really tight players). Average chip stack was $150-200, I bought in for $150.
The game was pretty boring, no action at all. One kid I've never seen before was at my table and I play this week usually every week. I make it $8 to go pre-flop with ah/js, the kid is on the button just calls, flop comes Ac/7c/2h.. I bet about the pot which was $20, he min re raises me another $20 which I think the min re raise is one of the stupidest plays in poker unless your trying to get paid off on the river. So I think about it I also saw he only has 20 left so if I call his min re raise I might as well put him all in cause I have to call his turn bet if he does. I put him all in he calls shows Ad/Qd turn and river are both blanks for me I lost about $70 on the hand nice flat call on the button with that then the table tells me he plays really tight, awesome thanks for telling me now! ha
My stack was down to $70 gradually worked it backed to a $100 then we combined tables after some players left.
I only brought $200 to the game usually I'd bring more but I didn't tonight and the stacks did not favor me at all. There was stacks of $800, $1000, $600, $500 good for me ey I have $100 plus the table was super aggro was $20 to go pre-flop every hand.
The first hand I raised I had Ah/Kh I maade it to $24 to go there was also a straddle on the hand. 2 people call flop comes j//j/9 rainbow. I'm first to act now my image at this game usually is when I bet I got it, I got a tight image so I use that to my advantage. I'm first to act I bet out $30 which can be viewed as a bad bet cause with that bet half my stack is already in the pot but I'm hoping my image pays off here, one guy thought for a while and put me on A/J other guy folded instantly.
Next hand I'm in the BB with 9/3 of spades 3 limpers including the SB. Flop comes 9h/3h/5d.. I bet out 10 bones folds around to the SB this guy calls me everyday and twice on sunday always just wants to beat me. Turn is a Jh.. He bets out $20 he's super aggro and I usually have a good read on him and I know how he plays. I thought about it I knew he didn't have a flush cause he would've betted out on the flop. So i put him maybe hitting a Jack I elect to just call to let him bet on the river again.. river comes a complete blank he bets out $30 he's playing this whole hand weird for him. I just call he shows a pair of 5's? i scopp the pot.. couple hands later I take down a $150 off him with A/K again he busts and goes him
Table breaks and I go for some Mcdonalds breakfast 4 in the morning

February 9, 2008, 11AM:

My slump continues.
Haven't landed in the money since early this week and it really gets to you after awhile. I've identified problem areas and am working towards correcting them.
The biggest issue I noticed was that I would lose my patience really early for some reason and would begin playing marginal hole cards which would lead to bad calls and thus, early eliminations.
I will say that it's not entirely my fault though, these are two hands that I played earlier today:

February 9, 2008, 5AM: Played 5 hours, 10 minutes, Made $1,290.64 at Full Tilt
$26 Buy-In Pot-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (1st out of 211 Players)

Didn't want to play anymore tonight but Rob thought we should play this tournament while we messed around and worked on the site a bit.  Funny how when I am playing when I don't "want to" I end up doing well.
Just grinded the first 150 players, not really paying 100% attention and just playing my hands straight foreward.
Once close to the money started paying attention and taking notes.
One key hand that would have busted me with about 17 players left was JJ, early position raises a bit more than min, agro boy is on my left and loves to jump into these types of pots to float.. I get a bad feeling and just let it go and wait.  He re-raises and early goes all in.. although ahead with JJ, one had KQ and the other AK, they both improve and I would have gone bust.
Once down to the final table I just carefully picked my spots as agro boy was on my left.  Eventually got him heads up with a chip lead, he doubled with the old 84 suited when he flopped a gutshot and flush draw, made a pair of 8's to beat my 6s.  Back to the grind from behind.
I thought a lot about Nate and EightFives advice, "don't freeze up" and "be more aggressive".  Once I turned it on a bit and didn't let HIM have full control he broke down.  It enabled me to understand that when he min bet.. he had shit and when he checked to make a moderate bet as he either had nothing, most of the time, or was trapping, very rarely.
Once I figured this out he was toast, I just kept the pressure on until the end.
Thank you both for the help, my heads up play has improved dramatically and it is critical as the bulk of the money is made there.

February 9, 2008, 1AM: Played 2 hours, Lost $4.40 at Poker Stars
$4.40 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (20th out of 180 Players)

Stupid! In my big blind I have A6c. Flop comes rag of diamonds Q9 of clubs. Guy checks so I bet big (1/5th my stack) and he insta-calls. This gets me thinking he's on a straight draw... Turn comes a rag of diamonds and I check (mistake 1). He bets out and goes all-in for $5,600, which covers me. I think for a bit knowing that my A high is probably good at this point but also know he's on a straight draw. I make the call and the river brings a J off and sure enough he hit his straight on the river and I was out.
Looking back at it now the safe play with an average chip stack would have been to make a smaller bet off the flop to see where he was at. Another move for me would to have placed a continuation bet on the turn instead of donking my check to him. With 20 players left I should have been more cautious but made an attempt to improve my position as the blinds were getting to high to wait around; however, I proved to be too cautious!!!.

February 8, 2008, 8PM: Played 7 hours, Made $325.00 at Skyline
$2 No-Limit Texas Hold'em

didnt do anything for a long long time, but never got out of line, so i still had most of my $200 buyin after a couple of hours. finally picked up aces, got one limper outofposition caller, hoss. flop is TT8, he check calls. turn x, he checkraises me allin saying "thats enough" as in "there is enough money in the pot for my trip tens." so i fold, losing half my stack. couple hands later, take flop with QTs on button. flop is 853 2 spades. brian leads out for $15, hoss makes it $30, i shove for $72. brian folds claiming KJs. hoss calls with 89o. river spade. i like my shove here because i had just enough to get a bigger flush draw to fold, leaving me headsup with weak hand. the biggest hand i played: got a little bored, raised to $12 from the cutoff with J4h. all 4 limpers called. flop AJ4 rainbow. everyone checks to me. now that i actually have a chance to make a hand with my shitty cards, i check behind. turn is another J. one guy leads out for $25. i knew he had an ace by the way he checked the flop, looking at me the whole time. i have him crushed and dont want to scare him off, so i smooth call. river is the last jack. quads! i knew my hand was best before but that this card would get me paid off, cuz there is no way in hell he is gonna lay down jacks full of aces. he bets $50. i move in for $100 more and he pays me off with ATo. nice pot. later, hoss bets $10 in early position and i call with KTd in the cutoff. flop TT8. he bets $45. i put him in for $80 more. he calls with KK. wow, i seriously out flopped him. nice. didnt hit anything big after that, just a couple of small pots. the game was a little slow and not a whole lot of money, plus, duke plays at noon, so i cant stay out all night if i want get up and watch them play. another nice win. 3 in a row!

$1 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (7th out of 536 Players)

$1 Rebuy, I was in for $3.  Played pretty good I think.  One a race on the final table bubble and then ran a stop and go against a middle position raiser with 77, he flopped middle pair and called my shove on the flop.  I like my play still because I had him on at least a big A that was calling an all in preflop so I had to give him a chance to miss the flop before shoving.  I was in 7th of 7 with 9X the BB and 6th place had about 15x so it felt like a good spot and I am pretty comfortable with my decision.
Also I am logging the time here for each of the tourneys tonight cuz they all started and ended within the time frame that I was playing this tourney in.

February 7, 2008, 5PM: Played 1 hour, 47 minutes, Broke Even at Full Tilt
$109 Buy-In HORSE Tournament (84th out of 438 Players)

Won the seat from before..
This was depressing, top 81 get seats into the $500 HORSE event, 82nd $300 and 83rd $160.. I go out bubble boy!
What destroyed me was right before the stalling period we are playing limit holdem, player raises with A3, I raise all in with AJ, the BB calls us both with 9T, no 39T and I win the pot, instead a 3 comes and A rag donk doubles up and I get back half my chips from the overcaller with 9T.
Then we move to stud games and you just pray not to get the bring in and slowly bleed.  No one is stalling at my table and the antes are eating us alive.  I'm milking my short stack and my time watching players drop.  I notice the button is across the table, giving me 3 hands until my BB.  When the game changes to Holdem the blinds will be like 1500/2500 and a ton of people will be all in in the blinds, only need to make 3 more people! It is looking like I can make it.  But then in stud the should have been Big Blind goes broke and somehow they move the button two spots and now I'M the BIG BLIND??? and the guy that should have had a small blind now get the button?? WTF?? Regardless, UTG limps with 22, they all stall fold to me with Q8, I don't improve but 3 of us go broke that one hand.  Unfornuately I had the least amount of chips so I'm 84th.  There are like 15 other stacks all that have less than 1K.. got fucked on button position and the A3, what can you do?

February 7, 2008, 8PM: Played 4 hours, 30 minutes, Made $305.00 at BJs
$2 No-Limit Texas Hold'em

absolutely no cards for the longest time, so i decided as soon as i got a playable hand in position, that i would try to make a move with it, just to try and get something going. i look down at KTc on the button, and it looked like aces. 2 limpers, i make it $10. only one caller. flop comes QJ6, 2 hearts. i continuation bet $15. he check-calls. turn is the beautiful 9c. nuts! i bet $35, he check-raises $100 more!! i only have about $70 on top of the $100, so its a no brainer to move in. he calls with 2 pair Q9o. i double. later, the game was slow and we only had 7 people playing, so we decided to mkae it a 2-5 game instead of 1-2. then i started to get some hands. won a couple pts with KK, QQ, and JJ on all low flops. gradually, the table began to loosen up, and poeple were limp calling raises with bad hands and chasing horrible draws for bets. so i look down a QQ on the button. 2 limpers, i make it $35, a good sized raise. billy calls from the bb and horace limp-calls $35 outofposition. flop comes 875 with 2 diamonds. horace moves in for $70. i call cuz i know hes only on a draw. turn is Jd, he shows me KTd. i lose $100 out of my stack. so with a still respectable win, i decide to quit for the night before something else bad happens to me. 2 good wins in a row!

$4/8 Texas Hold'em

Ah yes...a night of drinking then playing cards.  But it was another special night, as I got that itch to gamble gamble.  I bought in for about 800 and started ramming every pot.  I think I have to do this every few months just to get it out of my system.  I actually had a blast, as I would cap everything pre flop in the dark, then come out firing on the flop.  Then I read my opponents, and if they seemed strong, I would look.  I sent a few people out the door talking to themselves....and the conversations over the next week are always fun.  Good times good times!
