December 26, 2016, 5PM: Played 2 hours, Made $590,000.00 at Poker Stars Lite
$20,000 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (2nd out of 780 Players) (Play Money)
I pissed some people off. One guy was in first early. He was sitting pretty with 70k I had about 14k when I joined his table, it was funny because he was handling the other opponents like a boss. I watched the betting for a few blinds, 100/200 if I remember correctly. I think I was delt 8♣ 9♣ I was playing a wide range. On that hand I was waiting for a strait or a flush I think both but ended up with a set of 888 on the river, it was goid enough to win the pot I maximized my 14k and doubled it up. The guy was from Brazil he was eager to get back into another hand against me, mix it up. I did some things in the following few hands to set him up for the okeydoke. The fourth or fifth hand I had taken almost all his loot, he had only something like 4.5k left he (Dissconected) I had a hard laugh. I realized he must have thrown his phone.
Near the end I was holding steady with 140k and reached the final table. Of course the only American on the table again, we continued play, the blinds were like 10k/20k. I had about 250k when like 5 of us were All In I lost K❤ flush. Someone had A❤ flush. I remained on the table with 12k chips I was in 3rd for a moment. I played my little heart out to get back to 450k I took out the #3. I gave #1 fits after he won the big hand he had 1,000,000 chips I was able to take back half his stack before I got unlucky. From 12k to 450k. My lose was anticlimatic at that point I was playing a wide range real agressive like. He got lucky and called a long shot 4 outer aftrr the flop and hit a strait on the river. Second place 590k in play chips. Practice makes perfect

September 5, 2016, 11PM: Played 3 hours, Broke Even at BlueMoon Bar&Grill
No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (3rd out of 81 Players)
$100 nightly freeroll. I went with a few friends who are regulars at this freeroll. I joined the league and hit quad K's for 1000 points, made the final table for more points and ended up with 8 Bounty chips for more points. I was upset I didn't win, I felt I should had won. Blinds 500K/1.mil dude got luck on the river with a small pair. That's all I remember. I'm back in action playing Mondays freeroll and looking for cash home games to grind in ATX. I went to Vegas to play the little one drop $1111 it never happened I had a hell of a time El Cortez wouldn't accept my Debt card and Circus Circus was a life saver I was without lodging. What a mess this year will be different.

$1,000 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (2nd out of 657 Players) (Play Money)
I haven't been playing since January , caught someone cheating at the local cash game. Classic cards under the table and up a sleeve. I lost my job at The Best Wurst , dude fired me for working my butt off after SXSW , the showcase was rained out the main night , concert canceled , I worked 75 hours that week , we were stuck with 150 boxes of sausage , not my fault rain and bad owners fault lol any way , I started working for the family again. So I have some cash to bankroll my poker once again. I'm looking into circuit tourneys in Oklahoma. Tonight I'm going to Blue Moon cafe for a Freeroll , I missed Nates game Saturday , because someone over slept fuckin Omar , its been so long I forgot the gate code and address. This last online MTT was good I felt confident making all the moves biggest chip count was 456k for 1st place lead with 16 remaining. I lost because I folded a bad read I think I was winning the hand and I folded a A high. With 280k in the pot gave EXO the chip lead of 600k never recovered the chips , game went on for about 30 more hands. Final hand was anti climatic , I don't remember other than he won with low pair. I shoved with A something. I hope we can play live online poker in all of America once again some day soon. Maybe moving back to Vegas soon , I have to get on the tables some how , I'm losing my mind not playing poker , going broke without it. Good luck on the felt

January 14, 2015, 3AM: Played 5 hours, Made $20.00 at Danny's Retarded Game
$0.25/0.50 Dealer's Choice
Such bullshit once again. I took everyone out very early with in an hour. I should had cashed and went home. Instead I wanted to continue playing so I gave out 3 loans one to Paul $30 one to Danny's $20 one to Anton $20. Somehow I lost an Omaha hand $3 bet pre flop 6 callers. I had Ah 9h Kc Jc, flop was 10h Qh 7c. I raised $10 Paul and Jake called. Turn was 5d. I raised $12 Paul made it $20. Jake folded , I reraised all in $65 more. Paul thought he was getting cheated $3 from the pot because he took change at some point. He got made and called he was holding 10d 5s 7s 3s. He had me covered. He would had folded easily but was being a donk. He also won later hands with 6 3 , 5 2 , J 7 all unsuited and he raised every time pre flop. My brother sucks at picking starting hands , but gets so fucking lucky. He plays good otherwise. At some point I was up $280. But ended up losing 4 or 5 big hands before cash out time expired. Bought in for $30 ended up with $50

Happy New Year !
I didn't feel like playing tonight. I was dragged out the house to play by my brothers Paul and Matt. tonight it was Myself , Danny , Mike , Paul , Matt , Jake , Omar and Anton in attendance. Mike busted early and left , about that time Jake and Anton showed up. I was chip leader early on. Paul took a big chunk KQ over my KJ , the pot was around $45. It left me a little short stacked. I tried to grind it out for a hour tgen lost the last of it squeezing an Ace. I rebuy once for $20. I then take back what I lost with interest in a pot a few hours later on in the game. That one went down like this. It was an Omaha game, I was delt Ad 6d Jc 7c and end up in a duel with Paul. I was second or third from BB and raised the blinds .50/$1 family pot thus far to $4 and I get two callers. I was first to act after the flop Kd Qs 8h rainbow I checked. Paul raised $5 whoever else was in the hand called the $5. I reraised to $20 Paul called and the other guy folded. The turn was a 5d. I checked Paul raised to $10 I called quickly , the river was a Qd. I shoved all in for my last $17 and Paul called he turned over a Jd 8d. I got my earlier lose revenged.

December 17, 2014, 1AM: Played 1 hour, Lost $50.00 at Thomas's Home Game
$0.5/1 Mixed Games
Blah !!! Tried the music drown out thing again. I think I started with the wrong tunes, It must be metal only , because Cool and the gang , Dianna Ross and Michale Jackson did not do ut for me. It was slow going couldn't make a hand or get nice hole cards all but a few times , at least I didn't have to deal with Weddo calling every hand to the river , Weddo ended up taking down $100 off the table , Caleb took $80 and Mike $40, $180 to Paul and $30 for Matt. Thomas and I did not cash. Best hand of the night was Non existent my best was a Omaha hand that gave me a double double Kd Qd Ks Qs ,Matt nearly pulled off another Royal Flush , but hit his flush but missed the royal , it would had been his third one.

I put on my headphones and zoned out to some heavy metal , didn't let Wedd's stupid play bother me he proceeded to call everything , I followed the action and made all the correct reads without the drama and noise , I think I might switch to a headphone look at the poker table to help me focus, I felted everyone. I'm saying my game was on point while wearing headphones , I didn't smash big at cash out but I did play well , I maxed my value every hand , and kept them hoping for a miracle , I was able to used my other sences to get the info I needed to make moves and see the stuff my ears were hiding. I like the headphones and will continue to try other methods to improve

I lost its been a while since I didn't cash out , I was down to $5 and made a run up to $120 then ran into Wedo and his unstoppable run , he hit straits and flushes chasing river cards , I lost with rockets three times to Wedo's bullshit chasing ass , he called everything I couldn't get him to fold , All in didn't even do it , I doubled him up five or six times I hate sloppy players chasers without skills who catch lucky over and over and think they are great , truth is keep it up and you will be felted
