May 12, 2009, 1AM: Played 1 hour, 39 minutes, Made $16.21 at full tilt
hooray a winning session on full tilt. was pretty much a donkey hand that got me most of it...I have AA29 double suited and I prefer to limp with such hands to avoid getting my hand labelled, someone else preflop potted it and after two other callers I considered trying to isolate but I just smooth called. the flop was A 8 9 with two clubs (I was diamonds and spades) so I went ahead and made a pot sized bet assuming every card killed me other than the one that was the turn...9! so I have the mortals. I got one caller and am hoping he has some case cards, the river comes a blank J to which the guy insta pots it into me, so I figure screw it, no point value betting and I push it all in for like 8 bucks to which he calls and mucks. I look and he flopped a wrap and somehow paid me off with the 2nd nut straight on the river, thanks dork!

May 11, 2009, 11AM: Lost $3.00 at Fulltilt Poker
$3 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (71st out of 90 Players)
not to far into the tournament, i get AK. flop is 2 A K so i pair both of them. first to act bets 810, i call. number 3 goes all-in. first guy calls, i call. guy one has 34, and 3 has A Q. river is a 5 to give the first guy a straight to knock me out.
I am getting sick of playing on fulltilt. when i have the better hand, i expect to lose because my opponents catch cards on the river or get runner runners to beat me. . . . ALL THE TIME! Is it like that on all the other online websites?
It just makes me sick.

May 9, 2009, 12AM: Played 2 hours, 36 minutes, Lost $3.51 at full tilt
I should probably dig out the comical hand history here and post it just if one of you sickos wants to read some hilarious hands. it was actually .01/.02 blinds so it's hard to get mad about it, I was really laughing my ass off as the 4 or less outers kept peeling right off for folks. I actually had it up to like 7 bucks so it was quite a fall at the end. the last hand i have AAJT vs JTT9 (both with spades only), flop is Q T 4. where do they find flops that have me drawing so bad. that hand was pretty typical of this session and every one I play on full tilt.

$5 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (5th out of 10 Players)
Best starting hand was 2's, first position, 25/50 blinds, still 9 plyrs w/no short stacks. Preflop betting had been aggressive. Lots of raises and reraises. Wanted to limp in, but didn't want to play the hand for $150 and figured that's what it would cost me by the time preflop betting was done. Mucked hand, so of course it ended up 4 players in the hand with no preflop raise. Flop was 2,2, something. Aggressive betting throughout the hand. 3 of the 4 stayed in w/pot of approx $1200. Didn't even see what won ... too busy being pissed.

May 8, 2009, 6AM: Played 1 hour, 12 minutes, Made $317.00 at Maverick's Poker House
$1/2 Texas Hold'em
another quick "in&out" night at Maverick's. Sat down to J-8 off in the big blind, flopped top pair and took a $10 pot. 2nd hand, 9-10 off in the small blind. Flop 9-10-4 diamonds. Checked, big blind bet $15, smooth called. Turn 10 of clubs for the nuts...he bet $30, I called. River was a brick...he bet $20, I move all in. He shows the flopped flush and gets felted.
Tripled up later with a flopped set of sixes against two really loose aggressive players (flush and straight draws). Neither got there.
I'm really liking the action at Maverick's.

$2 No-Limit Texas Hold'em
there was alot of money on the table and people were being really agressive, so i decided to reload before i even went bust cuz i knew i would get paid off if i picked up a hand so i wanted to maximize my profits. but next thing i knew, it had been 3 hrs and i hadnt won a single pot and i was down to $60. so i started shoving and doubled my stack to $122 without being called. then, a short stack shoved in for $82 blind and i look down at 33. not a huge favorite over a random hand but i decided to gamble and another guy called me hoping his cards were live. i was up against 22 and 29o and my 33 held for a nice triple up and bring me close to even. so i sat around playing really tight, folding a whole lot and betting my good hands very hard. finally a big hand near the end of the night: mark raised utg to $12. i immediately put him on a pair bigger than TT. tim calls, i call with KTd, jamie raises to $47 and we take the flop 4 handed: QcJd6c. they check to me and i decide not to semibluff cuz i'm certain mark has aces kings or a set. turn is a great card for me 7d. now i'm openended and have a flush draw. jamie decides to lead out $60 and i know hes not strong cuz he would have bet way stronger on such a coordinated board. all 3 of us call. river is the 8d and i make the second nuts. jamie checks, mark shoves for $52, tim thinks and folds. now i'm looking at jamie and trying to figure out how i can get more money from him. it looks like he wants to call, but i dont think he would call any raise i made, so i only call, trying to get him to over-call but he folds. mark shows QQ for a slowplayed top set. i win a really nice $500+ pot and end up with a good win.

$50 Buy-In Texas Hold'em Tournament (2nd out of 75 Players)
Last night i decided to join the midnight madness tournament at the bicycle casino, during the first 1hr 1/2 of the tournament i was running card dead then slowly started to double up and made my way to the final table. Once there i doubled up i was holding AQ vs AK and hit the Q on the window and ended up holding the chip leader position until the end where my final count was $70,000 in chips against $79,000 from the chip leader and we decided to chop it.
On my way to becoming a tourny pro!!!!

$515 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (170th out of 354 Players)
Started off slow and rough. Found my groove. Started attacking players and their weaknesses, got my table afraid of me and was in control.
Then my damn table broke!
New table, came in firing then went card dead and position dead. Two agressive players on right, 3 calling stations on the left.. bad combo.
Grind and grinded to keep my stack from widdling away. Picking and choosing my spots.
Pick up AK mid position, UTG donk raises.. my insticts tells me he has AJ(my nemessis hand). I decide to shove all in. I need chips. He most likely should fold but a small chance he will call. I shove my stack in one fluid motion in one tower to entice a call. (If I announce raise, play out the call and cut out the raise he will have a chance to count the chips and think about folding). Having all the chips in one stack he will auto call or muck. He thinks... body tells him to fold but, as a donk does, calls. Spikes two jack not just one, bye bye Jesse. I even told him his hand before he called. I said, "You are going to call me with AJ?" Fucking AJ.. I hate Ace Jack Donkeys when they get there, which is every fucking time I am all in with them.
Regardless of the outcome I played fucking fantastic. I have been playing awesome poker the past few months. We also had a great time at the table, talking shit, being friendly, telling jokes and picking on eachother, you can't beat that.

April 25, 2009, 3PM: Played 3 hours at Hard Rock Hotel
$1/2 Texas Hold'em
got my ass handed to me... didn't win any big pots... made a mistake and didn't raise my AQ preflop and this fat bastard has K5 and ends up winning, don't remember what he had but chances are he wouldn't have been in the pot if i raised. then worked up my rebuy up to where i was only down 140, then this regular Andrew Scott shows up and i get all in preflop TT v. his AK, he wins the coin flip and i'm stuck very short stack and fighting for dignity. i think i should start a new rule and only do 1 buy in and quit if i lose it.
