May 23, 2010, 9PM: Played 1 hour, Lost $26.00 at full tilt
$26 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament
not much really happened here.
I was down to about 2k towards the end of the 2nd hour. I limped with 33 in middle position and it was raised to 600 and then another guy on the SB shot all in for 5400.
I decided that I felt like gambling for a potential triple that I desperately needed and called the rest of stack and the initial raiser called as well.
To my shock and amazement I actually had the best hand as my opponents had AJ (the 1st raiser) and 102 off! (the preflop raiser all in)
Naturally an A hit and a J turned and no 3 on river
It looks like insane, extra brutal losing streak will continue......fucking awesome

$20 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament
$5 rebuy 50k gtd
Never got above 10k here...
I picked up 45 off and made a position raise. Everyone folded and the BB thought about it for awhile before finally calling.
The flop comes A4Q with 2 diamonds.
The BB instantly bets out a 1/3 the pot and I called. The turn brought my miracle 4 not a diamond. The BB checked and I checked behind hoping he had an A or Q and would bet the river.
The river brought a Q, not the greatest card but I wasn't too scared.
He bet out and reraised for most of my stack and he flat called with QJ...precisely what I feared.
On the next hand I picked up KJ off and shoved in middle position. I was promptly called by 77 and did not hit my K or J

$15 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament
60k gtd rebuy
I did even better in this tournament today than last night....got up to 115k
With about 115k in chips I limped with 1010 because I had just won with QQ moments ago and I was going to play the hand very tight and probably drop the hand if it came overs and I didnt hit my set.
I got one caller and the board come 794 with two spades
I had been picking up some monster pots by squeezing with the over pair and so I decided to repeat that approach here.
I shoved and was promptly called by 77....I would have been at 250k in chips :-(

$9 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament
$3 rebuy 40k gtd
I got up to around 53k twice....not bad
On the BB I picked up JJ and flat called a guy ahead of my for about 2/3's of my stack. I was a bit leary because of the UTG limper and I prayed to god this guy wasnt slow playing a big pocket pair.
After I flat called the UTG guy reraised all in and I knew that meant QQ KK or AA but I had so much out there that I had to call the rest of my stack.
The guy who I had flat called had A10 and the UTG limper had QQ....just as I feared. He nailed a set and rivered a boat...I would have beat A10 though!

May 23, 2010, 1AM: Played 4 hours at Stony Brook
$1 No-Limit Dealer's Choice
Three-handed versus Yuya and Brandon.
1) Brandon is the king of razz.
2) Brandon and I played $25/$30/$35 a hand and ran out the board before cashing out, and in one instance...
Brandon had 5d,6h.
I had 2s,3c.
The flop came Kh-7h-5h, and Brandon remarked, "If I lose this, I'll commit suicide."
The turn came a 2d, and Yuya and I started laughing hysterically already.
Then the river came a 3s, and Brandon almost threw a chair at me.
The feeling I felt when I runner runner two-paired him was one of the best feelings I've ever felt in my entire poker career. That feeling was priceless. LOL.

May 20, 2010, 6PM: Played 1 hour, 1 minute, Lost $6.60 at full tilt rush
$0.25 Pot-Limit Omaha
wow what a frustrating session...had two hands that really went against me that ruined what could've been a nice winning session. First one I have 2 3 4 5, flop is 2 6 10 with 2 diamonds, which I have two of. turn comes 4 and I check raise all in with the nuts. guy calls with 10 6 and spikes a 10 on me. Other one I have wrap with K Q 10 9 on J 10 x flop, I check raise all in on turn, guy calls with top pair open ender and I miss, just a horrible call in my opinion, but obviously I wanted to drag that. Both pots were about 50 bucks so I was staring a 100 buck win or at least 50 if I could drag one, but that's how it goes.

$4/8 Mixed Games
just ran bad at 8 different games for 2 straight hours. no draws hit. no pairs held. people calling bets with nothing and hitting tap tap miracles. this one guy did everything wrong in each game we played and continued to win and win and win against everybody. and he was playing 4 tables and is a supernova! how in the hell does this guy make money playing the way he does? i cant figure it out for the life of me. look, i know i'm not the best player in the world. but at least i have a fundamental understanding of how these different games are played and what constitutes a good hand and what is garbage. and to watch someone who clearly doesnt understand these things win and win and keep getting crazy lucky over and over to win, it fucking drives me insane.

May 19, 2010, 11PM: Played 1 hour, 42 minutes, Made $64.31 at full tilt rush
$0.25 Pot-Limit Omaha
basically made all of this one in about the third hand I play, I have KKxx, button raises, flop is K 8 4, I pot it for 3, get 2 callers, turn is J, I pot it again, get raised which covers my initial 25 stack and the other guy calls as well...one is on the absolute totally naked AA with no redraws except the 2 aces, the other has a respectable hand K J Q 9 for top two gutterball but I dodge the 10 and make almost 50 in that one pot. I had it up to about 70 ahead, but then was down to roughly 50 for the next hour and a half, finally hit a little heater and decided to call it good enough. I played a lot tighter and in control compared to last evening's disaster. If I can get some sort of control over my little tilt factor it would save me the sessions that ruin my bankroll. I am back to rebuilding, but tonight definitely helps a ton.

$9 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament
$3 rebuy 40k gtd
I got up to around 24k before my rapid downward spiral began.
I raised with Q7 suited in position and was called by the BB
The flop comes K68 with two spades. The BB bet out and I called and the turn brought a 9 and the BB shoved and with 17 outs to make the nutz I called about 1/3 of my stack.
The river brought a Q and he had AK :-(
I raised in position with 810 off and was called by one of the blinds.
The flop came 248 rainbow.
The blind bet out and I shoved all in for the rest of my stack which was about 14k...I was promptly called by 99

$11 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament
I did fairly well in this tourney climbing up to about 20k before starting my downward decline.
With about 6M in late position I made it 2250 to go with blinds at 1 and 2k. Only the big blind called.
I missed the flop completely with 579 on the board and one spade. The BB checked and I checked behind. I turned a flush and the BB bet out 4k into 6300 and I called with just my draw and two over.
I felt that I had 15 outs to make the best hand on the river and as it turns out I was right.
The BB checked the river which did not hit me in any way and I decided to shove with just K high because I felt that he may have been betting the turn with air.
Instead I was promptly called by K9 off giving him top pair 9s and busting my balls once again
