June 8, 2008, 6PM: Played 1 hour, 10 minutes, Lost $26.00 at Full Tilt
$26 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (78th out of 90 Players)

Turbo, 90 max, bounty.. not my cup of tea..
Got tricked when I raise pre late with AQ.. flop Q72, I bet out and got one caller, rainbow flop so was like, "wtf is he calling with?". 
Turn a 7 and I let a card come off, river a 3 and he checks again...  I decide to value bet and he shoves all in.  Me thinking he is thinking I am bluffing with Ace high I call and see the 73 off for a full house.  Oops!
Did not have to value bet nor call, just was suprised that after the failed check raise on the turn the player had the disaplin to go for the river check raise.

June 8, 2008, 6PM: Played 9 hours, Lost $570.00 at Casino San Pablo
$6/12 Texas Hold'em

Less then 3 racks lost for a 3/6 chip game..
Bad but not terrible, frustrating as all hell.
Had every player pegged.  Was cold as ice.. fold fold fold fold.. then pick up a hand, get it crushed, back to fold fold fold, pick up a hand.. miss, fold fold fold.. this cycle never ended the whole session until I "fabricated a rush".
Was frustrated, the typical hand taking down pots was 82s or J3 off etc.. so on the button I limped with 79s.. the BB raised, 7 callers, I 3 bet, gets capped, flop a str8 draw and flush draw and I never missed a bet or raise.. turn brick and I still capped it.. nailed the river to scoop a big pot.. I proceeded to play the next 3 hands in a row like this, never backing off, until I finally lost the 4th hand. 
This was very out of playing character for my table image but I didn't give a shit at this point.  The 2nd and 3rd hands that won were 94 off, which made trips on a flop of QJ9 turn 9 river x and Q2s with flop of K39 two diamonds turn a diamond for flush.
After this BS rush I returned to being cold as ice.. in retrospect this *should have* been the time to get up and take my small loss of $200ish.
Frustrating that no matter what I did or how well you played nothing would work, but it happens.

June 6, 2008, 6PM: Played 5 hours, Lost $280.00 at Casino San Pablo
$2 No-Limit Texas Hold'em

Ok, first of all I don't know how to label this game...
This blinds are $2, $2, $2... BB, SB and Button, BUT to call you must call $4 total AND the MAX buyin is $100!!
So it is a fucked up game pretty much.
Ideal game from hell, always +4 limpers pre.. raising pre.. just attracts more callers.  YOU HAVE to turn over the best hand to win.. they don't fold.
Watched one goofball call $100 re-raise all in pre with 9T.  This same guy re-raised pre to $25 from a $10 bet with 8T off, then the OR makes it $100 straight and $200 behind and this guy still called... you can see how this game worked.
So I loose 3 buyins... 1st one with AQs, flopping a nut flush draw and two overs, getting 5 way action the whole way.  How can you fold? You gotta love it.
Then pick up QQ and iso the maniac pre.. but then this stubborn lady calls my all in pre with K8s and spikes a King :(
Last rebuy I don't go broke but am very frustrated with the max buy in... if I rebuy I'd be in almost $400 and have to double at least twice just to get even.. bad idea.. took my loss and moved on.

June 6, 2008, 12PM: Played 10 minutes, Lost $25.00 at Big Daddy's
$20 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (29th out of 29 Players)

The very first hand, I get JJ and reraise pre to get two callers.  I am in last position.  Board comes all little, 343. 
They check to me, and I bet half the pot, get a call, the a raise all in.  I think for a sec, and then dump it.  The other guy thinks for a minute and dumps it face up, showing QQ. 
The guy who wins the pot, turns over pocket K' good laydown, and I respect the guy who made the move.  He like to limp trap with big hands.
Next hand I get 88, and end up getting heads up with AK.  Lost the race.
Love being first out.

June 6, 2008, 7PM: Played 2 hours, 30 minutes, Made $151.00 at Big Daddy's
$35 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (1st out of 30 Players)

This was a bounty tournament with one bounty for 160.  I started off at a pretty easy to read table, just taking my time and waiting for the right moments. 
We got down to two tables, where I was happy to see two really easy to read players.  They will min raise with weak hands, and go super agro with big hands.  So, I double up while making a set in the big blind.  The funny thing was, the guy thought I was bluffing, and called me down with just an ace for what would be about 3/5 of his chip stack.  Then, I started being a bit more aggressive, since I had the chip lead at my table, won a race, and had KK hold up.
Final table was simple and I just chilled out.  I double up my partner in the tournament, which kept him alive. 
With 6 people remaining, including the bounty, who was one of the bosses, and my partner, we decided to chop.  I was chipped out 2 to 1 against the leader, and probably about the same as the 2, 3, and 4 spots.  The bounty was in fifth, but had enough to make a dent in anyone and my partner was low low low.  So, with the bounty 1 hour late to pick up his daughter, and my partner low man, I pushed the big stack to chop.  He was just happy to get some money.  I could have outplayed the table, but the blinds were rapidly going up, and crapshoots were on the horizon.  So, since I was splitting with my partner, this was a good scenario.  I would have had to take at least 2nd and take out the bounty to get about what we got each. 
Finally played really solid poker again, and did not make any huge errors like I did the last tournament.

June 5, 2008, 11PM: Played 3 hours, 45 minutes, Lost $1.39 at Cake Poker
$0.10/0.20 Texas Hold'em

Time: 5:00PM-7:00PM, 9:00PM-10:45PM
Hands Dealt: 230
Ever had a day where you just were dealt crappy cards the entire day, and on the rare occasion you got a semi-decent hand, you could not even pair up on the flop? And on the very rare occasions you were dealt a decent pocket pair, it got ran over hard? Yeah, that was today for me. The loss does not look that bad, but as usual, the last 30 minutes of the session is what saved me.
Side Note: Took more attempts then I had planned, but I won a satellite for the FullTilt MSOP Event 15 on Sunday afternoon. Just like in the cash game, I was pretty much card dead the entire time. Next time, I will just buy-in to the tournament and save the frustration for the day of the event.

June 5, 2008, 5PM: Played 6 hours, Made $135.00 at Casino San Pablo
$6/12 Texas Hold'em

Upon following the maniac chick (who if sitting on her left she exposed one or more of her cards, would chase down any pair, any draw, even gutshots).
I found myself in an interesting game.  One of those, "we are all agro pre tight games".  That is to say, NO ONE limped pre-flop EVER, the 1st one in always raised.  Everyone carried themeselves as if they were pros.  I felt like I was in a 15/30-20/40 game back in the day at the Bellagio.  Calling was not an option either.  Everyone seemed like they had an ego or reputation to uphold amungst eachother.
There were 3 weak spots, besides the calling station chick I followed (who had taked severve black jack losses and was pushing poker like a craps table to get even - I witnessed this as she came to my 1st table) There was a wanna-be player on my right (would be aggressive in all the wrong spots, complain about beats that wern't beats, would shut down his tempo on the turn and expose his true hand strenth) and then the last weak player was on his right ( two to my right ) who played too many hands pre, such as any Axs or Kxs, any two face cards and any pair regardless of cost or position.
On my left was a dealer/wanna be player who could not fold a strong pre hand post and starting hand requirements pre was too tight.  Then on his left a versitile pro prop (one who knows all the players and adjusts HIS starting hands to those that entered the pot/are in the blinds) Then on his left a... how do I decribe her style... potentially extremely great player but just fucked the turn card up and fell apart there.  Her problem with this was she LOVED to check raise or raise the turn, too much.  This was a problem because she would sacrafice flop information by not betting or raising the flop and chose to do so only on the turn.  Which, when she was wrong, this cost her lots of chips as she would not dump the hand when 3 bet and call down.  This was so predicitbale behavior that I could check raise her on the flop and then check raise her again on the turn or even bet out on the turn knowing she would raise allowing me to 3-bet.
Then on her left was an "X-pro" that played way under his bankroll who did not give a shit. He was an action junky who was passing the time.  He would raise stab at pots to iso the bettor if he thought he was weak, would float steal pots and would open for raises pre to pick up the blinds.  He kept the game in motion.
Lastly was a decent prop I'd been playing with over the past 10 years.  His only weakness was checking monsters too much in early position post.. shit, one hand he checked the nuts on the flop 3 times trying to enduce bets :)
Then me.. my weakness the 1st hour was learning all this information and in the process got a few hands picked off because I was not pushing the right people out of hands.  I also ended up being the "gas station for the suckers" on a handful of nice pots, you know, the hand where you flop top pair or better and the donk never misses a bet or a raise with a 6 high flush draw and no pair :)
Once settled things started going my way and then the crew I had analyzed all went away to be replaced by daytime players.  Business guy in suit ramming the game an hour before work, retired donks griding off of soc sec money etc.
I had a $300+ win in this game at my peak, came down to the $135 and decided with the long sessions and swings this small win would be fine.  Winning another pot would not change things for me but losing one would be devastating to the time I had put in. 
It was time to go.
I normally don't go through all the player profiles/types but since playing online like a nut there is something so refreshing and simple about sitting with real people.  Everytime I learned something about a player I mentaly "opened the note box" on them and inserted information.
Though long winded I hope some of you read through this.  I can't explain how much knowing your opponents helps.
Live is awesome.

Im not complaining but i just can't get anything going lately, my reading over the last couple of weeks has been point on, its easy with the players who tense up and give you the death stare to put them on a big hand and my pressure seems to work. The river is not my friend at the moment. i wanna just not loose to coolers, YA KNOW!!
