Pokering Continues...

Monday as predicted I spent the evening at the casino after work soaking up the air conditioned goodness. As usual I got zero cards but did manage to win a pot by bluffing and lost a whopping $2 for the day at 1/2NL (one was a tip). Cheap entertainment I say.

This evening i've played a few hours of 50NL single table which is typically boring but I got nice and stuck early and have been working to grind it back out. Here's my hand o' the night.

BB is 46/24/1.6 through 50 hands -- running a bit hot so the stats are skewed to look maniac'ish -- he's not.

Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em, $ BB (6 handed) Hand History Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com (Format: HTML)

Button ($57.74)

SB ($27.85)

BB ($80.95)

UTG ($61.25)

MP ($21.50)

Toast ($77.33)

Preflop: Toast is CO with 9c, 8c. SB posts a blind of $0.25.

2 folds, Toast calls $0.50, Button raises to $1, 1 fold, BB raises to $3, Toast calls $3, Button calls $2.50.

Flop: ($10.75) 6d, Jc, 3c (3 players)

BB bets $7, Toast calls $7, Button folds.

Turn: ($24.75) 3h (2 players)

BB checks, Toast bets $20, (BB says: pkt 6's?) BB calls $20.

River: ($64.75) 5s (2 players)

BB checks, Toast calls $46.83 (All-In), BB folds.

Final Pot: $111.58

Of course I showed and got a few oohs and aahs from the donks.

Oh, and i'll mention that I went to the club to hit some golf balls, and my swing is definately returning. Tempo was better, ballflight more predictable. I just hope it kicks in before club championships so I can try and keep up with Matt -- damn he's good.

Pushing nine-high and calling THEM donks?


Nice win!

I play No Limit because I have testicles which have not yet been handed over to my wife to hold, Mr. I Turn Down Golf On Sundays To Make Personal Appearances.

Anyone want to go see the Lakehouse this weekend instead of golf?
