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.

Okay, refocused, reenergized, and ready to go this time. Nothing is going to stand in my way this time. Was able to win a pot with 9-6 suited when the Jack paired on the river that was on the board, lucky nice little hand to pick up a pot and get against one of my opponents. It is a really good feeling when you can sense a player for being weak, and just put them on that weakness, and from there, be able to just punish them when they get out of line. I had A-K and raised it pre-flop. Got everyone to call, which was 4 players. I had seen this player in particular call off a huge all-in with Q-3 off-suit. Flop comes K-Q-4. And I made a big bet pre-flop, and he raised it, I shoved on him, and he called, and he had Q-3 again. Brick. Brick. And it was over there for a nice pot. I also had A-K vs. A-K pre-flop, and the opponent hit a flush on his, and then had A-10 vs. Pocket 8s, and lost that one. Breathe, good things will happen to me. Was able to get a player to put some money in when I hit the nut flush on the River. As well, this same guy was able to stick his whole $2.50+ stack in pre-flop with A-Q off-suit. I had Pocket Queens, and was able to dodge the bullets. Another hand I had was when I raised it pre-flop with A-K, and another player 3-Bet pre-flop with Pocket Queens. I called, and the Flop came K-3-3. I checked to him, he bet, and I then check-raised him all-in. From there, I was able to get him then and the Turn and River bricked. Lucky me. All in all, this was an amazing session, and even though I lost two buy-ins at one table, I was able to make that back and more. Lucky me. Here are the stats after the first 25 sessions, BAM! PROFIT/LOSS FOR SESSION: $4.16 profit. HANDS FOR SESSION: 116 CURRENT BANKROLL: $124.02 TOTAL HANDS AT 2NL: 3529
