$3 No-Limit Texas Hold'em
so I havent played in awhile. just been working alot, keeping my nose to the grindstone and trying to save up for some things i want to do, one of which is play alot more poker...so my temp agency sends me to a restaurant at crown to work a shift. lucky me. what a coincidence. my shift doesnt end until almost 2am and all the public transportation is done until 530am, so i'm stuck at the casino with nothing to do. huh, what to do, what to do. so i take out $200 from the atm and sit down. the game is typically very soft, with people calling nearly every preflop raise with any 2 cards. so i sit tight. there is a very active, very agro young asian kid who is mixing it up and forcing the action. he quickly bluffs his way through 3 buyins, but of course, he begins his comeback against me by actually having the nuts for the first time ever. my T7d gets beat by his 55 on a stupid board of 7s7c8c5c2s. i got off pretty cheap as he value bet $50 on the river and i check called with my trips and alarmbells going off in my head. almost laid it down, probably should have. so i was cursing my bad luck once more when i pick up JJ and double on a 9 high board.
anyway, pot of the night: i make it $15 utg with QQ. 4 callers, then bb goes allin for $67. he was pretty erratic, so i would have been very surprised if i wasnt way in front here. i think about reraising to isolate as there is nearly $100 in the middle already, but i dont feel like QQ is strong enough for that here and someone behind could easily have AK and wont fold no matter what. (thats the way the table was playing, very passive, call anything but not push) so i just call and to my surprise, agro asian kid calls from sb. flop is A89 rainbow. he checks and i nearly insta-shove for $113. why did i shove? i knew that if he had an ace here that he is good enough to lay it down cuz my shove looks like AK and he cant win. also, if i check behind cuz i'm scared of the ace, he will know i have a smaller pair and will surely bet the turn with or without an ace, leaving me to play the guessing game and a probable fold. so basically, i decided not to play scared. best reasoning in the world? i dunno. maybe you would like to discuss EightFive?...anyway he says "donation" and calls. board runs out blanks. i turn over my QQ and the other 2 muck their cards. i guess he had something like JT for a straight draw. the allin guy said he had lower pair. wow. didnot expect a call and when he did my heart sank. i actually got up from my chair to leave as the board was dealt out. so a very nice pot. and a nice win. decided to call it a night after i tried to get cute with KK by limping from early position. unraised preflop. but i got away from it on a dumb board of Q3457.

April 5, 2010, 5PM: Played 23 minutes, Made $121.85 at full tilt rush
had a couple hands really work out for me, the first one I have AAxx and it was unsuited trash, I limp under the gun, it's raised and reraised back to me so I potted it hoping to take it down but get called in both places, it comes a total ragged 8 5 3 flop and I shove and get called by QQ for a 112 buck pot. The other hand I actually lost, but lost the minimum, I have AQ1010, flop is K 10 3, I pot it in position and a blind calls, turn comes 3 and I bet small and get check raised the minimum, the pot is like 11 bucks, I wanted to ram him on the river, but for some reason when he bet 7 really quick it just felt fishy to me, so I called and he showed quads.

$0.10 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (216th out of 2041 Players)
Might have been able to come in within the first hundred (to earn points for USA) if I wouldn't have pushed all in when i flopped top pair with ace kicker (queens), opponent flopped straight, and that's all she wrote. Not me the game. :) I have numerous entries I still need to add to this log, like I mentioned before. The last 2 entries I entered were never posted for some reason. sux!! I noted that I wasn't able to add hand history, even though I uploaded to site I dont know how to do it. So for now I'll just include poker related links, as usual. bye!

$3 No-Limit Texas Hold'em
okay, this is some serious bullshit. i won a couple of hands right off the bat and built up to almost $500 without playing any really huge pots or being allin. then i get KK in the sb. it folds around to the cutoff. he raises to $20. so far i saw him raise to $10 in late position with K6c and to $20 with AQd. i make it $65 and he calls without a thought. he didnt consider folding or reraising, only call. he has only $110 left. flop 25T rainbow. i put him in. he asks how much and then slowly puts his money in the middle. turn 7, river pairs the 2. i turn over my kings and he announces to the table that he has a full house before he proudly turns over 55. i have a thought to try and explain poker etiquette to him, but i thought it would come off as being a sore loser, plus this guy was clearly not on a level to understand what he had done, calling off nearly half his stack with 55 and then being so slow to put his money in with what was basically the nuts. also, when he said he had a full house, i dont think he was being an ass as so much as he was genuinely pleased that he had made such a strong hand as a full house while not even realising how lucky he had gotten to hit a 2 outer. so i kept my mouth such and was thankful that he didnt have more money in front of him.
the very hand i get 99 on the button. the utg player thinks about raising but instead decides on limping. this asian guy next to me raises to $15 and i call, bb calls, then the utg guy makes it $50 to go. the asian guy looks annoyed and genuinely considers folding but calls. he has me covered with about $500 and the guy who made it $50 has about $250 in front. so i call here knowing if i hit my set i might double against a sure over pair, like what just happened to me. $165 pot. flop 9s8s5s. bingo, maybe. guy leads out for $75 with his over pair. the asian guy next to me shoves in before the $75 even hits the felt. its been my experience that most players dont act so quickly with a made hand in this spot. they usually take their time to think about slowplaying or acting weak before shoving, so i find it hard to believe that he already has a flush and even if he does, i'm not too far behind, so i shove and the other guy autocalls. i turn over my set, the other guy looks upset and only has QQ with the spade. i thought KK or AA for sure. asian doesnt show. turn is the 7s and asian stands up and yells YES!!! as he slams down his cards 9h6s for a straight flush. the meaningless river pairs the 8. i lose a $1000+ pot and go bust with 9s full of 8s to a straight flush.
who runs worse than this over such an extended period of time? who? i cant even run the odds for this cuz i'm so sick about it. fuck man. fucking bullshit. i mean, what the hell? how can this keep happening to me? i dont know what else to do other than quit. seriously. what else can i do? i'm at a loss

$1.10 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (3rd out of 40 Players)
I really wanted to get 1st, even more than usual because the winner also gets to take part in a $40000. prize. Not sure of the exact details, (haven't won yet), Still the pay out is a little better than normal. I should have won this easily, even though opponents were applying pressure from all directions (common when chip leader). The killing hand was an A/J off on SB final table, late position raises to 1000 I call flop comes AQx, I can't remember if i checked or bet, still opponent pushes remaining chips in pot over 3000, no draws possible unless he had K/J or K/10 which is less scary than an open ender. Immediately i thought he might have Q/Q but called in a mili-second, and saw his big slick. So the King kicker cost me 1/3 of my chips and put me in 6th place instead of strong 1st. This was only 1 of 2 SB i was able to play because of the pre-flop raisers and small stacks pushing all in. So when I was way ahead and saw the A/J I pretty much was willing to call anybody any amount. The last hand I was beaten by a high-card 10. On BB with 2 blinds left and 3 people. Knowing that I would call any raise with any mediocre hand which was 7/8 suited he had 10/7 off community cards held 3 Kings and 2 dead cards. he won with 3 Kings 10 kicker vs 8 kicker and so it goes. These sng's are promos offered for a limited time only. Instead of the 1.20 45 player SNG (7 pay-outs) this is 1.10 40 player (6 pays) amd one bonus. This was the 3rd so far the other I ended on the bubble and 16 place, so I'm still wanting to go for that 1st place finish. I will play another tonight or tomorrow.

$0.10 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (3rd out of 360 Players)
I'm still blocked from playing on stars for 4 days, which is OK, since I excluded myself a few nights ago. I took over for a friend late in a SNG and lost. Played again and won (see previous entry) and this one came next. I got lucky and finished in 3rd place after being down to 1100 chips with 2 tables left. From there was able to build my stack first with A/K suited second Pocket Jacks vs pocket aces hit a jack on turn Whew. Then Once again with K/K eliminating 3 players. The rest were just small pots both win and lose. Needless to say I love winning 40 times the buy in, whatever the stake! Thinking about trying a different site, other than poker stars and full tilt. Will see ....
