Last week I missed 3 days of work b/c i needed to drive my mom back and forth to radiation..
Well Monday I was bored and had 70$ on stars so I decided to play some HU rather than grind micro stakes; went on a heater and ended the day at around 300
Tuesday I 3-tabled Jose Torres and won ~7 bi's and ended the day close to 800
Wednesday I 3-tabled another reg, guy with the cookie monster as his avatar, and won 9 BI and ended the day at 1300
Went to work THursday and Friday, didnt play
Saturday played a bunch of tourneys and got pwned at HU, dropped down to ~900
Today I was getting owned and down to 700, and 3-tabled this guy.
Owned him so hard ;P I wasn't in for more than maybe 75 in any of these tables.
need to post a few pics on here to show them to someone later -- they are funny so I might as well share here
Poker-wise, still grinding out 5/150 at CA, have been super busy with finals + work + holidays, so I haven't had much time to play. Tuition and christmas dented my roll quite a bit, too. Going to play some tonight - the edge is so sick at that game. If I can stay patient, that is..
4chan is so disgusting at times, but so utterly hilarious at others.
Went back and played the 5-150 again on Sunday. This time I'm trying to keep the image of nervous young kid so that people give my raises credit, and then some guy that I played house games with sits and about 5 minutes later starts blabbering saying yeah this guy makes a ton on the internet! Called out :
Some crazy asian came, called 300$ (I made it 50, he made it 150, I made it 300 which is max I can raise, he flats) - insta-shoves over my 150 bet on K high flop and obv hits two pair to own me. Worked the rest o the night to make it back and cashed about 150 up. Still, the place is a gold mine. I see myself there quite often in the future.
Can't stop listening to this song today. This is a great cover:
It's been said over and over before, but jesus, casino poker is so easy lol
My girlfriend's out of town for the weekend and I got off work early so decided to go down to Casino Arizona's poker room and play their 5/150.
It's basically 3/5 spread limit, 150 is the max bet, 350 max buy-in. Kind of a lame structure, but apparently true NL is illegal in AZ?
I bought in for 300, and my table was gold. Nobody really raised, there was only two people sitting who covered me, it was so simple to just raise in position and let them check/fold every flop. I did dip a while when my top set got owned by some old lady who chased a straight to the river, but meh.
I think half of the table hated me, especially because I was asking a lot of newbie questions since I had only played in a casino twice before, but I cashed 1350 after about 3 hours of ownage Might go back tonight.
Online, I built a roll playing 100NL HU over a couple of days heater, now just playing 50nl 6max and really trying to work on my game. The new responsible gambling thing that stars has is really cool, set a max limit for your tables. So it's really effective against things that used to get me in trouble, like seeing a big fish sit at 1/2 - 2/4 HU. Not even worth looking anymore!
O and I satted into the Sunday Warm-Up twice (2 for 2 on these 6-max 86$ sats with two seats and 3rd gets money back, good deals so I'll probably have about 100k in 9 or 10 hours.
