I caught fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiire. You know those days were you're just hitting it? I lost a few medium pots, didn't screw around too much in small ones (other then steals), and every big pot I was in I took down. My play was very ABC.. you notice how it's so much easier to play good when you're focus is on extracting as much money as possible. Some pots were so big that I was forced to call down some improbable draws... gotta love it when they get there
The only reason that the session was 1hr and 45 minutes long was due to the fact that the table broke up and I didn't feel like learning another table.Buy in: 80Cash out: 305 +37.5BBLive Bankroll: 2025 +37.5BB.25/.50 online at Full Tilt - NA

As you can tell, I didn't last long in the tournament. Not even through one orbit really. Here's the goofy hand.We all had around 4500 chips (starting stack). I had no reads on anyone at this point. I'm not a great no limit player, but my start in poker was tournaments so I play them on the side for fun (money not included in my bankroll). Here's the hand.Pre-flop, blinds 25-501 - fold, 2 - limp, 3 - fold, 4 - limp, 5 - fold, 6 - fold, 7 - limp, SB (hero) A3s complete, BB checkEasy complete in the small blind.Flop (t250 pot) A K 3 rainbowSB (hero) check, BB check, 2 - check, 4 - bet t200, 7 - call t200, SB (hero) raise to t1100, BB fold, 2 fold, 4 call, 7 callWith such a strong two pair and no raising action on the flop, I felt I had the best hand since no one raised PF (I didn't think about 33)Turn (t3550 pot) A K 3 QSB All-in t3300, 4 - fold, 7 - callRiver (t a whole bunch of chips pot) A K 3 Q 9Results:Hero - Two Pair, Aces and Threes7 - Three of a Kind KINGS Ugh, no raise pre-flop at all. Should I have not bet as strong as I did on the turn? Or did I do what most people would have done? Either way, that's over onto the cash games.3/6 live at Golden West 6:40PM-9:40PM
This was a very very standard session. I made one goofy attempt at a bluff that I felt would work into 2 people on the river. God knows what I was thinking and I hate myself for being an idiot there. The rest of the session was very standard. Overall, I like the way I played no matter the results. Table as very loose as always and more aggressive then usual. I'm getting much better mental compilations of the usuals that play there. I'm playing each person better as time goes along. One note to remind myself of is that I probably need to focus on paying more attention as I'm usually watching ESPN when I'm not involved at the table.Buy in: 100Cash out: 134 +5.66BBLive Bankroll: 2059 +43.166BB.25/.50 online at Full Tilt - NA
I need to put some hands down. I've been lazy so I think I'm going to hit that up tonight. I just got an e-mail about getting my rakeback payment today
My bankroll wouldn't be what it is without that and the bonus.

People come to Washington believing it is the center of power. It was only much later that I learned that Washington is a steering wheel that's not connected to an engine.

It may be true that you can't fool all the people all the time, but you can fool enough of them to rule a large country.
