A Poker Novice - The Journey


Day 2

By: JDubyaTas @ 20:09 (EDT) / 228 / Comment ( 2 )
After playing solidly for a few days stupidty again got me today playing 5c/10c 6 handed NL game.

I have told myself so many times that when there is a pair on the board and I have only 2 pair that I should not get sucked into betting when faced with a strong raise but made the same mistake as I have made many times and did and got smashed by a set.

To say I am disappointed in myself is an understatement but I suppose I will wake up one day and stop making this same mistake particularly when I had no real read on my opponent. 

Anyway, back to drawing board and some consolidation.
