Oh Variance - why do you do this to me....

Been a while since I have blogged so I thought I would get a blog out tonight to lament my Sunday run bad.


I've been playing quite a lot recently, mixing in 2nl, 5nl and 10nl at Zoom and regular speed tables.

Today, I have been playing quite a while, getting some nice hands but having to lay them down on bad boards. Thanks to Daves classes I probably saved some money there. So, I kind of thought I was due some run good when I did flop monsters, unfortunately the poker gods disagreed.

This genius thought it was a great idea to limp raise, which basically meant that I ranged him to one hand, AA. I call his 3bet fully willing to get away from boards that were not to my liking. I flop the nuts but being a 91% favourite isnt going to cut it.

Get it in ahead again - pot shipped another way again.

All in all my play for the day should have seen a $13 profit but the fickle fingers of fate wrapped themselves around my kneck and strangled any such hopes. I ended the day $5 down.

Nothing left to do but dust myself off and try again tomorrow.

Good luck PSOers.
