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 #39

Okay, so back for the evening sessions now, and honestly could not be more happy right now, just trying to contain it, and hopefully it will go well this evening. Maybe might go up to 3 tables later in the night, but starting out with just 2 for right now. Nothing too big right off the start, just a few pots here and there, starting actually on the uptick, so that is a good thing. Just lost with A-J. Had an opponent call pre-flop with 6-4, and hit two pair, and when I hit a pair and a flush draw on the Turn, he called my all-in, and I was not able to improve. Ugh. Just keeps getting worse on that table, keep trying to get it all back, but in the end, it is probably not going to work. Gah, now I am doing the stupid thing. I am trying to get it back on the other table, and that is something that I can't be doing. Just need to let it happen. Here we go, breathe in the nose and out the mouth. Yep, that should work. Ugh, that's it for this session, it is killing me. Just had two pair, and then got the flush hit on me. There we go, got a little bit of it back with a marginal hand. I had 7-5 of hearts, and I called a pre-flop 6X raise by the nemesis at the table. We had one other caller, and the Flop comes down 8-6-5 with two clubs. He fires out $0.10, and I make it all-in for about $2.50, and he ends up calling with an open-end straight draw and a flush draw. Brick brick, and I double up. Lucky. Okay, so if it isn't the one table, it is the other one now. Gah. I had top pair on a Q-8-5 board, and when the 4 comes, I push on a guy, and he calls with the straight. Gah. Okay, so that was just sick. I really was card dead, and anytime I had a hand, it was crushed. Just tried to make too much of it all, but hey, could have been worse. So, here is the damage. PROFIT/LOSS FOR SESSION: $5.46 loss. HANDS FOR SESSION: 72 CURRENT BANKROLL: $118.98 TOTAL HANDS AT 2NL: 6132
