I took my 1.75 and turned it into 2.39 which is a .64 cent profit playing.5-.10 limit on b-dog. I played tight aggressive and it paid off. I will build this stack by playing beginner sngs on b-dog til I can venture off into other areas of the poker world. I followed that up by finishing 2nd in a 2.20 beginner sng on b-dog. I should have won. My opponent pushed and claimed he wanted a flipament. I believed him and I was right. He had 5-8 and I had a6. He flopped an 8. That crippled me and he went on to win. I played perfect for the most part. I will win more often than not. roll up to 5.19 now. MOVIN ON UP! I decided to invest 4.40 in 2 beginner sngs and finished out of the money in both. Both times with AK once vs aces and once vs 99. God I hate AK! Well down to .79 cents now. micro donkament cash game I guess!

Solid aggression. Don't really know what to type as I am new. I would prefer an excel spreadsheet that has already been made. If anyone has one, let me know. Strictly for cash games.

$20 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (17th out of 35 Players)
ran up against one of the luckiest bastards i've seen in a while. early on he won a big pot with a straight after calling a raise with 69suited. against me he called my 1200 raise. i had ak suited flop comes 973 i check he bets and i raise. he calls. we check the turn and i bet the river although i guess not high enough. he says there's too much in the pot so he calls with a 7. he puts me out when the blinds are 500 1000 and we're still at two tables. he calls the bb and i go in for 4000 with ace nine. he calls as do two others. flop comes a94. he goes all in forcing the others to fold. he turns over a4. he catches a four on the turn to knock me out.

$11 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (48th out of 680 Players)
Rebuy and add-on, I take one re-buy and one add-on ;)
Disapointed in this one.
Was doing great, had over 100K, chip leader then fucked off 40K in two hands. Then bled down to 35K.
Was watching agro boy on my right steal and make moves. In the cutoff he moves all in for 50K when blinds are like 1500/3000. I call with AQ and see his K9 beat me. Stupid risk but then again I am a hero if it wins.

December 11, 2007, 12PM: Played 4 hours at Grand Sierra Resort Reno
$5 No-Limit Texas Hold'em
Wow this was a juicy action game and I was quite happy to be in it. Doubled up right away when I offered to chop with the big blind and he told me that "I don't chop I play poker". I have pocket Q's and still offered. So this is a 3-5 NL game. I said ok I raise to 50 he goes ok lets see a flop. Comes Q high and I make a full house. He doubles me up after calling me down with a pair of 3's. I knew then it would be good but it might be a roller coaster. I actually give most of this back over the next couple of hours then get involved with a bit hand where I flop middle set and a guy tries to run me over with 4 5 off. He bets I raise. he checks I bet he calls on the river he shoves all in. AUTOCALL. good session

"More Stats" - What is working/What is not
I just got done reviewing my "more stats" overall and for the last 30 days. For those that do not know this feature you can see what, where, hours etc.
For me, since I play different games, levels and tournaments on primarily two sites it is important to look at "what is working and what is not".
My conclusion is on Poker Stars I should stick with tournaments, specifically PLO when available and then Texas Hold'em. On FullTilt I should stay clear of tournaments and concentrate specifically on lower limit Pot Limit Omaha games.
This was very blatant when I compared hours played with money won/lost. I fight with myself though and think, "why can't I do well on Full Tilt tournamnents but do well on Poker Stars?" Bottom line, it doesn't matter.
Stick with what is working!
So I suggest to any of you who have mulitple things going on to view your "more stats", analyze it and make the appropriate changes. For those happy with your success, don't change much but take a peek.
For those that are just playing the same game, limit and location and feel they are struggling, try and vary up your games. Try new places and game types, online and live. Find where you win and keep going at it.
Just my thoughts, happy hunting.
btw - just watched "Lucy You", not to fond of poker movies but this one was very realistic with "real" poker people involved, anyone that has spent time in Vegas or LA will recognize many of the people, not just the pros.

$3 No-Limit Texas Hold'em
Small stack goes all in, i have straight draw, and flush draw so I call $30 and there's another caller. There's about $130 in pot, and the river comes A. I now have a pair with 4 kicker, but missed flush/straight draws. One player is already all in, and I check and opponent bets $25. He has to have A with bigger kicker or already hit two pairs. I know that he knows that he has to beat the all in player. So I fold and to my surprise, he takes this $25 side bet and folds immediately and lets the other guy take the pot. Very very strange play and come to find out he knows the other player. I should have called the floor, but I'm not sure there's much recourse for that type of collusion.
All in all, a good night, but did chase a bit too much at end of night. Was up $750 as one point.

$500 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (99th out of 224 Players)
most players would have gone broke on this hand: start with 2000 chips, a player that was next to me the day before and finished 14th was at my starting table again. we talked enought the previous play that we respected each others game. he knew i was tight and if i was betting that i had it. he never saw me bluff and all i showed down was AK, KK and QQ. he had raised my bb several times in the early going, and i let him have it everytime, even with hands that i probably could have called with. i knew that i was setting him up for a big bluff. he limps in early position, several players limp for 25 and i take a flop from the button with J8c. flop comes K97, one club. he leads into the field for 75, folds to me, i make a raise with my gutshot to 200. he calls. turn is Ac. now i can actually make a hand. he checks and i take my free card, not wanting to get in too deep. he could have a monster. when he checks the turn, i put him on a set. river is 7c. i hit my flush, which he could never put me on, but the board paired. he leads out for 600 in a 500 pot. i only call. he shows me AA for a boat!. not only did i pick a terrible spot to pull one off, but i actually made a hand and paid off his very deceptive play. later, as a very short stack, i shove from the hijack with Q9c for 550 with blinds at 50-100. button wakes up with QQ. flop is KJT. i get very lucky to double up! stole a couple pots here and there. with blinds at 100-200 and 25 ante, folds to me on button. i shove for 1775 with TT. bb woke up with AQs and i lose the race. bust.
