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 #19

Well, once again here we are my good friends, on the verge of another 2NL 4 Table session. I have my focus at 100% and I am ready to go. Hopefully this should be a good one. Think that I made a nice laydown with Pocket 10s on a board of 8-5-2-8-5. It was a little rough, because I had raised on the Flop, but from there, it was checked on the turn and river, and the opponent bet out about half of the pot. I just figured that it could not be a bluff here, so I folded. Had two big hands and in the end, I am down a little. I had a short-stacker who had gained a decent stack, and I had Pocket 10s. I got shoved in on my stack, and I felt that he had maybe either two big cards or a weaker pair than mine. I was right, he had A-K, but he hit an Ace on the Flop. The next hand I had A-Q suited, and raised it pre-flop. He shoved on me again, and I put him on some weak hand to try and get me on tilt. He had A-J, and he bricked out. Lucky for me that time. I had another strange hand with this player as well. I checked out of the BB with J-6 suited in hearts. The flop came J-3-2 with one heart. I bet the pot, and he called. The turn came the 5 of hearts, and I bet a little under the pot. He called again, and the river came a 7. I bet out $0.30, which is about half of the pot now. He raised it to $1.02, and I felt for a minute that he is just trying to make a play on the pot, because he had done the same thing before when I had just checked and he bet on the river in a big pot before that. I just knew that he had nothing, or at least weaker than I did, and I didn't have anything. I called and he had 9-4 for a busted straight draw. Bam, nice little pot for xtremer. Another big pot with the same player again. I raised it pre-flop to 3X the BB with A-K off-suit UTG+1, and he called with one other player. The flop came A-3-2, and he led out for a min bet. I called, and the other player did as well. The turn comes an 8, and he shoves all-in for $2.50+. Once again, I really think that he just has a naked Ace, so I call him, and he did. A-7. Brick, and a nice little pot for the xtremer once again. Boom! I was able to get another nice pot with Pocket 9s this time. I had a player raise a decent size pre-flop, almost 10X. I called with my hand, and the flop comes K-9-4 with two hearts. I check, and the two others check, and he bets about the same amount again. I call, and one other calls. The turn comes a K, and I check and the second player checks as well. The original raiser fires half of his stack out there, which is only about $0.40 at this point. I shove to put them both all-in, and the second player folds but the original raiser calls with Pocket 10s, bricks on the river, and I ship the nice $2.50+ pot to me. Overall, this was another nice session. Was able to gather a few big pots from some tables. Others, I did lose a few average size pots, but that is going to happen, so let's see where we stand after this session. PROFIT/LOSS FOR SESSION: $3.26 profit. HANDS FOR SESSION: 238 CURRENT BANKROLL: $132.23 TOTAL HANDS AT 2NL: 2439
