Hey guys, just finished another frustrating session. I finished January like £500 up but seem to have gone on a £400 downswing in February which is slightly annoying.
Tonight it is pretty funny how many tournaments I busted with AK. Honestly, 5 or 6 of them were with AK losing to pocket pairs or to AJ. I guess I could shrug this off and say it is just variance biting me, but I am just going to check and go over a few of these AK hands and make sure that I'm not being overly-aggro with the hand.
I did manage a cash for $89 in the $11r on bwin but I actually bought in for my highest amount ($71) as I was getting pretty cold decked in the first hour, so it is a rather meaningless result!
On the brighter side, Ben kindly offered me a stake for the $215 Sunday 4Million tonight and I jumped at the chance. I felt I played pretty solid poker and I was making as many notes as I could on my table-mates. Unfortunately I lost half my stack with AK (lol) and then when I was down to ~12BBs I woke up with KQ in the small blind, only to run into AT in the big blind. GG. I am going to go over the AK hand from this tournament also as I believe I may have made an incorrect play somewhere. Anyway, I loved the tournament, so ty Ben!
So it seems I am on a downswing in poker, but on roulette I am on a severe upswing. I have ended up in the casino a few times the past week for various reasons (nearly always drunk) and have found myself winning time and time again. I am going to put this money towards a holiday, but I have also put $60 towards a 1% share in Ben in his massive Sunday session tonight. Currently it looks like he could go deep in the $55 on stars, among other things. GL!
Went to Manchester last night for a mates birthday and although I am not a massive fan of the city, I did manage to have a pretty fun night. TY Jack!
Currently planning when to have my next session this week. Will post again then! C ya!
A bit of heat to start off the new year
