The hidden set

By: Liptinite @ 04:59 (EDT) / 314 / Comment ( 4 )

Lost a couple of dollars last night because of the hidden set, pocket pair and a third on the flop against my AA or KK. Had to reload twice! It could have been a lot worse but I regained some losses by the same method. I've got to learn to use the time available to consider the possibility that my top pair are beat. A bit more time and tightening up would have seen me even again. 



There is something satifying to see the opponent who won my chips later lose them and bust out though, haha.

Bankroll dropped to $49.91 after reaching $51.99. BAH!!

Edit: 10/09/2016 - bankroll over $60 thanks to deposit bonus, spin and go tickets (winning 3 out of 5) and small profit cash games. Slow going but in the right direction. MMTs are proving frustrating, further training required.
