Yes, I do this a lot to myself, but I am truly going to grind myself all the way through the Micro Stakes. Starting out with $100 in my account, I am going to be playing at the 2NL level, and when I reach 40 Buy-Ins on the next level, at that point I will move up then, and continue up the progression level. I will definitely be trying to leave myself points to Cash Out some profit, but we will see when that comes along, but it should at least.

Session #114

By: xtremer1125 @ 11:09 (EDT) / 224 / Comment ( 0 )
So, another session is starting up this morning, and I am honestly feeling confident about this one as well. Another 12 Tables at 5NL, so let's see where this one is going to go as well. Ended calling down with a two way straight draw, hit it on the River, and was able to get someone to call a nice raise on the River. Boom. Whew, was able to take down a nice pot against a player that I know decently,. Held Pocket Aces pre-flop, and just called the raise. Flop came 7-4-3 with two spades. I checked and she fired out a bet, and I called. I called, and the Turn came a Q, so there ids two diamonds and two spades now. I check, she fires, and I raise, she shoves, and I call. She held K-Q, and bricked on the River. Boom. Ugh, just ran Pocket Kings into Pocket Aces pre-flop. It happens. Wow, had an opponent 3-Bet me pre-flop with A-5 out of the BB. Wow. Sick. Made a nice play at a pot to pick it up on the Flop. The opponent made it about 7X the BB pre-flop, and I called with Pocket 8s out of the BB. I ended up calling, and the Flop came Q-7-2, with two diamonds. I checked, and she fired out $0.75. I decided to shove at that point to rtry and pick up the pot, because I felt that he was weak,and he was. Whew. Starting to make a lot more 3-Bets pre-flop and they are starting to take some nice pots down, which is a good thing. Been making some good progress back to even, and was just a little bit ahead, now just a little bit behind. Eh, it will happen soon. Wow, all that hard work, and in two hands, I destroyed it. I called with A-K versus Pocket Aces. And then I decided to go with A-Q versus A-K. Both donkey plays. Ugh. Wow, and just starting to make another comeback. Imagine if I was not down so far how far this would put me ahead. LOL. Funny stuff. Ugh, just had set against set with me on the bottom side of this. Wow, I haven't had a more frustrating session in a while. Just got murdered against a lot of different hands, and it was kind of hard to take. I still played some phenomenal ABC Poker, but even when I would try to make some crazy moves with trying to get my money in on draws, and be ahead, they would destroy me. It happens, and I have to realize that. I am still doing phenomenal, juts need to relax, take a step back, and go, I got this. To which, I do. PROFIT/LOSS FOR SESSION: $12.32 loss. HANDS FOR SESSION: 804 CURRENT BANKROLL: $207.49 TOTAL HANDS AT 2NL: 7128 TOTAL HANDS AT 2NL 6MAX: 147 TOTAL HANDS AT 2PLO 6MAX: 104 TOTAL HANDS AT 5NL: 20746
