December 16, 2012, 8AM: Played 3 hours at The Gardens
$2/4 Texas Hold'em

Well tonight was pretty eventful.
1st buy in
AA vs KT
1)Complete donk opens to $10, I raise out of the SB with AA to $27 ($100 total), donk calls
:::Flop A 6 4 rainbow:::
2)I check hoping to check raise, she checks back
:::Turn is a queen.. rainbow board A 6 4 Q:::
3)I check one more time convinced she'll bluff at it, nope, check back.
:::River A 6 4 Q J:::
4)I bet out $35 fiending for a call, she insta jams her stack and I snapped called. Not in a million years could I put her on raising with KT UTG..
How the hand should've played out. Well the pre flop raise and check raise attempt on the flop were perfectly okay with me. The turn is where I absolutely have to put in a bet, to get value from a weak ace, a possible queen, pocket pair, or a draw like she had. Even if I bet out the turn and she called, I'd rather of loss that way. Yes, I'm aware of how poorly that hand played out. But it was a lesson I had to learn the hard way.
Other hands:
JJ called an all in vs womans AQ..loss
AQ all in preflop vs K2 & AJ..loss
Eh aside from the AA hand being played horrific, I played pretty good.. However I felt like I was still thinking about that AA hand for quite some time. I need to let my bad plays go.

December 13, 2012, 10AM: Played 3 hours at The Gardens
$2/4 Texas Hold'em

Played one hand bad..
Had AQ mid position raised to 10, 2 callers, people who had position on me.
Flop A 5 7
I had a nut case behind me so I planned on check raising all in, he was firing everything.
Well my plan back fired. Both players ended up checking back. (Pot:$30)
Turn came a blank. A 5 7 2.. I bet $25, the wacko called.
River came a 6.. No flush out there that was apparent, I planned on check calling a bluff, but he bet $55 and I snap called to see his 76..
Now the hand should've played by me bettin the flop and just taking the pot right there..  The donk probably would've called flop and fold to my all in on turn.
Eh it was a valuable lesson I learned.
Other buy in lost $75 preflop w/ J J to K10, against a maniac.. And I want those calls.
Other than that.. I was fairly card dead..

December 9, 2012, 9AM: Played 2 hours, 10 minutes at The Gardens
$2/4 Texas Hold'em

Eh pretty short session.
Had a tricky scenario..
Had AA 3bet someone pre flop to 35ish.. I have a little over a hundred left and was covered.. I 3bet out of the blinds as well.
Flop 567 all diamonds.. The person I was playing against was fairly conservative.. I ended up betting 35-45 on the flop hoping to take it down (since I didn't have a diamond).. He ended up calling, the turn was an 8 completing a one card straight. I ended up just throwing in the towel.. Sure enough he bet 80 and showed me a set of 88s.
I feel like the only correct play there is to jam all in on the flop, no other play.. What am I hoping to turn? A diamond? I feel like most players have to respect an over pair there.

December 8, 2012, 8PM: Played 5 hours, 40 minutes at The Gardens
$2/4 Texas Hold'em

Played really well. There were a few spots where I should've stolen the blinds. Or where I should've isolated the limpers. I came up a lot and that might've stopped my aggroness. I was also really satisfied with how much I was coming up, reading people wasn't that much of a priority and that's a big no no. I need to continue to play my hands a bit slower and not worry about getting them getting cracked.
I'm also slowly but surely learning how to play back at good regs or conservative players. I'm beginning to double barrel the turn not giving them pot odds to play any more.. And if they call or raise I throw in the towel.

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.

July 26, 2013, 12AM: Played 3 hours at Bovada
$3 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (10th out of 239 Players)

Ran redic hot at the beginning...Had a top 5 stack the whole tourney until down to 20 people.  I had people all in left and right...never won a single one of them and got short with 17 left.
Fought as a short stack most the rest of the way.  3 or 4 times a short stack was all in on the final table bubble and won which is always annoying.  I didn't avoid any good spots hoping to "just make it to the final table" though which is good.  In fact, I think my shove when I busted was bad.  A3 UTG (5 handed) with 10xbbs...I think I would rather shove like 98s there maybe.  I dunno.  Dominated by so much of their calling range.  Only mistake I think I made in the tourney and I bust.  I feel like I see everyone else at my tables making mistakes all the time and of course they play for a long time...I make one and I get snapped off and busted in like 2 seconds.  Oh well.  Just annoyed cuz I lost.

March 22, 2014, 12PM: Played 5 hours, Lost $240.00 at Caesars
$200 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (50th out of 150 Players)

Did quite well in this tournament. It seemed to be full of locals and semi-pros. They all seemed to know each other and have seen each other at the various cardrooms, taking money from tourists like me. There was also the douchebag "bro" who gave me a good tip about betting halftime lines in basketball.
I got a pretty healthy stack going into the second break, and the first hand out of the second break I pick up 99 and double up someone with JJ. It was only about a quarter of my stack, so I'm not sure it was a bad play. Strangely, my dad lost his whole stack with the same hand, except he had JJ, and lost to 99.
Later on, with a slightly-below-average stack, I fell in love a little with AKh, and lost to AQo. Flop was AQX, and the guy just let me put myself all-in. Maybe could have avoided that one.

December 1, 2012, 9PM: Played 6 hours, Broke Even at Bicycle Casino
$3 No-Limit Texas Hold'em

Was up 150 until hour 4.
I raised 18 preflop. Three callers. Flop comes Q36. It checks around to me. I bet 45. Small blind calls. Turn comes A. Check Check. River comes 9. Check Check. Guy says he called my 45 post flop bet thinking he had a flush draw. He didnt have a draw and he ended up spiking the A on the turn. LOL. Guy was an idiot. HE went broke 4 hands later.
Had pockets 10's a few times and called a few pre flop raises with them (15-20 dollar raises). Folded after the flop every time. Paint all over. Whole cards never really developed into anything.
Cashed out even after 6 hours of play. NOT MOTIVATING!!! AND the HOT ASS DEALERS in RED DRESSES were so freakin DISTRACTING!!!! I think I fell in love!!!! LOL

August 10, 2013, 1AM: Played 6 hours, 18 minutes, Lost $350.00 at Hard Rock - Hollywood FL
$350 Buy-In Texas Hold'em Tournament (210th out of 586 Players)

I've not been posting lately as I host poker games and don't consider my play.. "Real" poker as I'm not necessarily playing to win.
As well with a smart phone our site is hard to post easily.
That will change soon as Dedobber and Mtcarddealer will be building a free app to log on the site!
Anyways, I've been fortunate enough to make it to Hollywood FL to attend their series of events. I've carved out 1-3 weeks to dedicate myself to playing again.
Today was a blast, although I disappointedly busted out of day 1c.  I had a terrible start, running my AA into KK, all the chips getting in on the turn and my opener dead to a K on the river, which came.  Starting with 20k I found myself 15 min into the event with only 6k.  I kept my focus and recovered to more than 60k by level 5.  Unfortunately a bad table change and 2 bad beats later I was short stack grinding.
I did my best until my AQs encountered AK pre.
All in all a great start to the events. I'm comfortable and confident in my play and reads after many years of being out of "real" action.
I look forward to the days to come and sharing my experiences.

August 16, 2013, 1AM: Played 13 hours, 30 minutes, Made $1,135.00 at Hard Rock - Hollywood FL
$560 Buy-In No-Limit Texas Hold'em Tournament (150th out of 3389 Players)

Started on time which is unusual. Had a snug table and got them adjusted to a fast pace game.  Got some nice trap hands in my favor. As well as had a maniac image which caused pay offs.  Then went on a rush and played it hard. Avoided some other big stack confrontations with pot control. May have lost out on chips but wasn't left to any decisions for my stack. 
Ended day one strong with 270k in chips, ave is around 120k ish.
Day 2: playing well. Grinding. Ducking out pots with non all in players.
Had 2 critical plays. AK vs 88, flop flush draw and overs. I call on flop and turn, hit to double up.
KK vs KK(short stack) and AQ. Fold pre, yes... Fold pre.
AQ raise 4x pre, I flat, short shove, AQ ships for 600k. I had 550k at the time and know I'm ahead but don't want to risk my tournament life. I can find better spots. Plus my gut is freaking out screaming fold. AQ spikes an ace and I avoid elimination. 3 hands later I pick up 160k with the but straight.
On dinner break with about 700k. Blinds 10/20k and 175 players left.
Out... 3 hands raise in a row got shoved on. Made stand with AQs lost
