September 28, 2009, 5PM: Played 9 hours, Made $24,088.96 at Full Tilt Poker
$200 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (6th out of 4008 Players)
Best day in my poker life so far. Today i took 6th in the Full Tilt Poker big Sunday Tourney 750k guarantee!!! I Won 24.528.96 I got out with AK vs a7, However i played it bad, the guy raised 2.7 times the blind in first position, middle called him and I had a brain freeze and just called!!! I should of shoved both of them probably would of folded instead i got out floped by the initial raiser A 9 7 board(He flopped A7). He check raised me all in on the flop. This was my only big mistake of the tourney especially since i was short stacked at the table(with about 12 bb). Biggest cash for me of my life!!! Tourney fee was 200+16 and i lost 234 the day before playing 1/2 nl. This is the reason why my winning amount is a little off. So i was trying to make 5 thousand in 2 months, like the show 2 months 2 million. But in one month (September) i made 26,641 far more than my goal

September 11, 2009, 5PM: Made $128.00 at Northern Quest
Limped in with Jc/9c under the gun. Flop came Qc/Tc/x. I bet, get called and raised, so I call three more. Turns a blank. I check and call a bet on turn along with someone between the middle of us. River is the Kc. Ah....
I bet, the guy sandwiched between us raises forcing the other player out. With his raise, I know he has ace high clubs. I reraise, he caps it and I drag a doosey.
Got 28 for the straight flush and 100 for high hand.

August 27, 2009, 4PM: Played 1 hour, 30 minutes, Made $25.00 at Sandia
$2 No-Limit Texas Hold'em
Roller coaster Session. Got up $180 right away thanks to AA, KK and KK again. Unfortunately I lost all of it in a big hand.
First hand I was dealt was AA in the cutoff. Three people limp to me and I make it $12. Two limpers call. Flop is 8s 5s 4h. First limper bets $30 into $37. Other limper folds and I call. Turn is the 3h. Opponent bets $50 into $97. I raise all-in for $90 more. He folded and showed 1010. Off to a good start.
Limp UTG with AK. Folds to cutoff who moves all-in for $10. Button calls and I call. Flop is As Kc 10h. Great flop. I don't think the button is calling with any hand other than QJ that beats me. I bet $15 into $29 and the button calls. Turn is 3h. I bet $20 into $59. He raises to $70. He has $100 left and I am debating whether it is QJ, K10, or A10. He would have reraised with 1010, KK, or AA. I have played with him before and I know he doesn't need the nuts to get it all-in. I move him all-in for his last $100. He instacalls and shows QJ. Ugh. $459 pot down the drain.

August 2, 2009, 12PM: Played 25 hours, Made $1,950.00 at Northern Quest
$1/2 Texas Hold'em
this entry is for the last two months of playin live at our local big casino. I havent logged i a while but i thought i would keep it up. The last four sessions have been successful so far and i have not run into any crazy play that breaks me off. The players in the big game are pretty respectable except when the drunks come to play and love losing a grand in less than an hour. But if you get ur money in good you usually get paied off depending on the alcholoics luck. I havent been playin much tourneys even though i chopped a 4 way last night for a big chunk. 33 dolla buy 5oo added and 35 players makes for a big pot. Keep ur instincts on point...PEACE OUT PERM....
