September 4, 2012, 12AM: Played 3 hours, 30 minutes, Lost $399.00 at Casino M8trix
$5 No-Limit Texas Hold'em
It has been a while. I didn't play poorly. Probably not aggressive enough, but nothing really ever hit for me, either.
Jesse had the hand of the night. He had K5 for two pair, and a very loose player has AQ for a pair of queens. Jesse raises all-in and then shows him his hand. He folds, of course, and then Jesse makes the dealer turn over the river card, a Queen, which would have made the guy a set. It was a big pot before the all-in raise. Jesse probably made over $200 on the hand and went on to win about $800 for the night. Fucker.

August 5, 2012, 12PM: Played 3 hours, 50 minutes, Made $520.00 at Lilac Lanes
$20 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (1st out of 41 Players)
The 1500 dollar monthly freeroll. To qualify, you must either win a daily morning tournament, or log enough hours in the cash game. Had both covered. My roll continues. Chopped it 3 ways for 630 each. 90 dollar tip, with one 20 dollar add-on for a profit of 520. Got outplayed early on in the tourney, lost about 40% of my stack when I mucked my aces on the river to a board of 4/5/7/6/7, should have sniffed out the bluff, but couldn't quite pull the trigger. Worked out anyways, got moved to a much easier table after that and flowed like water.

July 18, 2012, 7PM: Played 2 hours, 47 minutes, Made $500.00 at Aces Casino
$40 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (1st out of 30 Players)
Sitting home bored, I remembered Rick telling me that Aces was adding 300 dollars to their nightly tournaments 7 days a week while only getting 2 tables. With those odds I thought it was worth a shot. They allow 1 re-entry for the first 3 rounds. Some crazy hands, people not knowing what there doing, someone laid down Aces up after the flop for a small bet and showed it, not even realizing what he had, which would have busted me. The same player refused a four way chop, and of course went out 4'th. 1'st was supposed to be 675, 2'nd was 405...heads up I had about a 2-1 chip lead, he wanted to chop, so I offered to take 600, which he immediately took. Tipped 60 bux, 40 dollar buy in...profit of 500. Cakewalk.

July 10, 2012, 10AM: Played 2 hours, 55 minutes, Made $147.00 at Lilac Lanes
$25 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (1st out of 25 Players)
Chopped heads up...I'm including my tips in this now, cause I ain't going home with it, so it makes sence for me to do so...tipped 40 bux for the miracle hands...This was as lucky as I can ever remember getting in a tournament. All in preflop with K/Q of hearts for 2100, Dan Jones is in with two black Aces, comes running hearts for the double up...look down at wired Kings a few minutes later, Randy Beals had bet 2100, I go all in in the BB for about 4800, he insta calls with 10/10 and flops a 10, but the turn was a King...then down to four handed, I shove preflop with 3/3 and get snap called by wired Jacks, flop comes 2/2/10, turns a 3!...finally heads up with about a 4-1 chip disadvantage, Tom Carson asks if I want to chop and gives me the seat to the freeroll...yes I do.

February 4, 2012, 1AM: Made $1.77 at micro limits
I played a couple of freerolls today I just cant get that win I want so badly.I run very deep and fall just short of the money or bust out very quickly,I tend to run deep for the most part.You have to play very aggressive from the start just to make a deep run.I dont care about cashing I want a win.That would be big for someone of my small bankroll.I have been playing a bit of .05/.10 Omaha 8 and hold em just testing the water and they both seem fairly easy to beat.Im just not to that point yet.Its coming I can feel myself going to a step up from slums to gutter I made $1.77 today.That puts my bankroll at $27.77.I think I will stay at .02/.04 till I get to 34 or 35 dollars.good luck me and sleep well PEACE

January 31, 2012, 2AM: Made $2.01 at micro limits
today i realized that you cant bluff in micros.i knew he had trips but i keep on betting,thinking he would think i were full...not the case.so i will never bluff again its just not profitable in limit micros.i could of won more but i went on tilt for a few mins after that hand and i got suck out on in big pots at least 4 times.a little more discipline is what i need.this may sound funny to some people,but this is a challenge for myself to build a bankroll from scratch.it is slow but i feel it will make me proud when all is said and done.my bankroll is now at 25.26.i may wait till im up to 35 or 40 before i move on to .05/.10 well see PEACE

December 2, 2012, 12PM: Played 8 hours, 30 minutes at The Gardens
$1/2 Texas Hold'em
Overall good session. Learned a lot as always.
3 noteable lessons
1)I regret limping with suited connectors, I either have to come out raising or folding, there's no in between.
2) I had an over pair and played it way to freaken fast on such a dry board. I have to relax and take a couple deep breathes.
3) There was a hand where I had 8-8 and I should've called a raise pre flop.. I had the right odds because it was a multi way pot. I guess I hated the fact that I was in the sb position and way out of position. Sure enough I would've flopped a set and make the initial raiser go broke with his J-J
I could've played longer but I was beating myself up for the way I played a few hands. I can't do that anymore, I have to learn to just take misplayed hands as experience.

September 5, 2011, 7PM: Played 2 hours at Aria
$125 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (25th out of 50 Players)
felt pretty good. wasn't getting much for cards but making the best of it still growing my stack to keep up with the avg. an early position raises it to 1600 blinds 200 400 25 i call near button with 6s7s no one else calls flop 7h 7d 4s i bet out 2k he calls turn is a 5s i have him on a decent pair so i check to induce a bet. he shoves i snap call of course with 3 7s and an open ended straight flush draw. he shows AsQs and he rivers the Js for a bigger flush. (bs) that cripples me and im forced to make some moves with only about 2bbs left. i get called and lose.

September 6, 2011, 7PM: Played 2 hours, 30 minutes, Made $750.00 at Village Club
$3 No-Limit Texas Hold'em
Q-7 on SB in a limp-in pot. board comes out Q-Q-K on the FLOP with a flush possibility. it checks around to late position who makes it $40 into a near-family pot, and i'm the only person to call. TURN is a 6 and i check call his $100 +/- bet after the flush didn't hit. RIVER comes a 7, completing the flush and filling me up at the same time. i check call his all-in for $300 +/- and come up uber big. never asked what he had. big g thinks he was bluffing by his bet size and chip placement on the river.
