Slightly better on Micro Millions day 1 - cash

MM004 $5.50 Zoom.

Never really got going in 66 hands. Card dead with just a few small connectors to play with, but all my draws missed. Won small pot with KK. Had AK twice, won a small pot with one, missed the flop with the other and had to fold to the all in bet. Went out with 87 and top pair all in on flop 248 v 34 who rivered a flush. Probably played too many mediocre hands trying to make something happen. Not my day at all.

MM005 $3.30 NLH

Cashed but it was hard work. In 4hrs of grindingly slow play, 201 hands, I saw a total of 4 pocket pairs - TT, 66, 55, 33 and had AK (x4), AQ (x2), and played a few hands like AT, 87, etc if it wasn't too rich.

Finished 1638th/16,156 for $6.30

A few hands -

Hand 10 blinds 15/30 stack 4930
I call a MP limp with A5 in CO and see 8AJ flop with SB and BB also. Checked to me and I bet half the pot, only the BB calls. He check calls my half pot bet on the 2 turn and also on 3 river, and I beat his A4 to win 1.5k pot. Stack 5815

Hand 15 blinds 15/30 stack 5815
I raise to 66 UTG with AQ, button 3-bets, small blind 4-bet to 1170 so I fold. SB won with AK.

Hand 40 blinds 30/60 stack 5509
I raise AK in MP to 132, HJ calls, BB 3bet to 300, I call along with HJ. Flop 4T6 all hearts, I have K heart so I bet 270 into 930 pot and they fold. Stack 6139

Hand 44 blinds 30/60 stack 6079
Call 2 limpers with AT in SB and we all check down to river where I made flush and bet and they all fold. Stack 6259

Hand 56 blinds 40/80 stack 6079
Open from HJ with AQ to 175, button and BB call, 887 flop I check and button wins pot with a bet.

Break 1h25m blinds 60/120/15 stack 5239 (avg 8400)

Hand 92 blinds 75/150/20 stack 5104
54 diamonds I raise UTG limper to 330 he calls, he check calls my 450 bet on flop 36J, and my 975 bet on turn Q, then he puts me all in on river 6, I fold my missed straight draw. Maybe should not have played this but was getting nothing, and felt like I should try to make something hppen. Of course the next hand...

Hand 93 blinds 100/200/25 stack 3304
I raise AK 450 in MP, same guy now BB calls, I bet  600 on flop 632, he calls, he puts me all in on turn 6, I call with nut flush draw and two overs, he has 93 and I river an ace stack 6933

Hand 136 folded 33 in SB after MP min raise, flop 73Q, maybe should be calling with my stack size as it is? Probably. A mistake I think.
