My Poker Blog

Well It sure feels good to see poker our training working, seeing as how online we see so many hands per hour, that we sometimes only remember the losses. Well i got a little bank roll and have been playing in the regular tournaments. I have had AA beat so many times that my heart will pound when i get it now because am not about to play sorry poker and limp it, but i hope it dose not get beat with 53. So here is two hands from a 3000k guarantee tournament i played today. The first one is my AA win, The second is a DONKEY loosing with 53 suited after making rediculouse raises with it. Enjoy my show and tell. See eveyone at the tables, James
