June 21, 2008, 10AM: Played 2 hours, Lost $10.19 at Cake Poker
$0.10/0.20 Texas Hold'em
Hands Dealt: 124
If I do not have a decent winning session tomorrow, I am done with this experiment. I should be able to run all over these river fishers, donks, BINGO players, etc., and I can not even catch a winning session to save my life. Would probably help if I caught a pair on the flop, but no matter what hands I play, it never hits. When I play tight and play semi-premium hands, flops misses, all low cards. When I play looser, hands like baby suited connectors, flop comes the wrong suit and all high cards.
Just can not seem to catch a break. Yesterday I make about $100 live in Atlantic City at 2/4 in just 3 hours. My reads were spot on. Today, online, I lose over $10 in 2 hours playing with dimes, and I was not even tilted from all the loses. I can only imagine how worse it would be if I was.

$0.10/0.20 Texas Hold'em
Hands Dealt: 131
Typical session. A little up, a little down, end session almost even. Was excited about this experiment when it stared three weeks ago. Now I just really do not care. Sick and tired of running bad and constantly losing on the river with good hands from players have no clue how to even play. Really do not even feel like writing about my sessions anymore because all I seem to do anymore is whine, and that is really not the type of person I am.
Probably will not play again until the weekend. I have no plans, so as long as the game is running, I plan to log a lot of hours.

June 21, 2008, 5AM: Played 7 hours, 48 minutes, Made $243.00 at Lucky Lil's - Butte
Playing half NLH and PLO,
Great game and win but the end was annoying.. grinding me ass off all night.. was up $550 and the very last two hands of the night I come off $300 to the worse player at the table :)
1st hand guy moves with top 2 pair in PLO with a straight and flush draw on board.. I had flopped the nut straight, he fills.
Then the very last hand same guy pots it pre.. I flop two two and 2nd nut flush to his nut flush..
I guess I'm happy with another decent win, just frustrated with coming off $300 in 4 minutes after working so hard at gaining a real decent earn.

$2 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (35th out of 256 Players)
bubbled...not real happy with this one because I think I may have made a mistake when I was a big stack to become short stacked. I was trying to be aggro and with my stack on the bubble but i think i applied that idea in not the best spot.
after that hand i was down to 14xbb and still had a chance to get deep though but picked up 88 in the SB and moved in on a button raise and lost to AQ. That hand was standard but i am not as sure about the previous hand...marginal for sure.
GG Jaspinal cashin for $1150 or so

$12 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (2nd out of 990 Players)
So I'm going to get 2nd best avg. finish which sucks. That is 2% of 40k so about $800 more. I averaged 26 and winner shakingelk averaged 21.5 or so says EightFive. Nice cash though. Have to be up in 4 hours though. I led the tournament from about 27 to 15 then hung around near the top. Was huge underdog when it got to last 2 but I don't remember exactly. I had ~300k with blinds 15/30k and I want to say he had about 1.6M but I don't know for sure. Played dumb heads up trying to take a pot and he had top pair. GG me.

June 18, 2008, 9PM: Played 3 hours, 11 minutes, Made $215.00 at Bremerton Lanes Casino
$4/8 Texas Hold'em
Two key hands this time.
1) Quad A's - Lose cannon at the table raises my button, I have AA and reraise, capped 4 ways to the flop. Flop is A46 two spades. Cannon fires, I raise, gets capped. Turn A. Cannon checks, I bet, cannon raises me I go 24 obviously he calls. Cannon check calls river. What a moron.
2) AK --- I raise cutoff. 7 ways to flop. flop K43 two hearts. check to me I bet. 3 callers. Turn is black ace. Donkey leads into me I make it 16. heads up to river. J that brings back door flush on river. Donkey checks, I bet, donkey calls and rolls over QT off suit. Donkey bets into me with guttberball and catches. 132 dollar pot goes the wrong way.
Other than that, this game is just too easy to beat. None of these guys can play tight. Just sick.
Side note - my dream girl was there again. Someday I hope she is with me.
