2NL to 100NL - xflixx's micro stakes 6-max cash game challenge


5NL shot failure

By: 94Tofer @ 07:15 (EST) / 485 / Comment ( 0 )

So I have been playing the 5NL stakes for the last few days, I feel like I played well in general, slight error here and there but that happens. I have lost almost the entire 'shot' bankroll - $19.75 (from 1028 hands) down so I still have the 40BB for the 2NL level. I know it is bad to complain about running bad so I'm not going to complain, but what became the last hand of my 5NL shot - my AA ran into somebody else's KK... We got it all-in pre flop, flop was good but a king on the turn annialated the last of my 5NL bankroll. Through the 1028 hands I was down $19.75, but my 'all-in EV' line is about +$4, so I was runnung almost 5 stacks below EV which is fine, but it is not what I am looking for when I am taking a shot; but thats fine I immediately finished the shot when I lost with my AA, so I still have $80.31 which I can grind back up to $100 ready for another 5NL shot.

Until next time, good luck at the tables

Current bankroll: $80.31
Profit: $0.31
Hands Played: 4836
