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 #6

Okay, so after a long day of just sitting around and doing all the stuff that I needed to do, including a nice workout, I decided that I needed to get a nice little session in. So, here we go. Off with the recap of the session. Had one quick hand where I was able to get a player to commit their short-stack with Pocket 7s, when the top card on board was a Q. Nice little pot to start the night off. Had a strange hand where I raise pre-flop and the caller then Donk Bet into me on the turn with top pair. Nice little hand that I lost the minimum on. Had a little harsh hand where my Pocket Kings hit a set on the river but lost to a straight from a player I classified as a Donk for too many hands. I hate that sometimes, but nothing to get me down. Made another donkey play when I shoved A-10 into A-K on an Ace high board. A huge pot that I lost when I shoved with Pocket Kings into Pocket Queens and A-Q off-suit. Flop comes A-A-2. Brick. Brick. $2 down. Ugh. That would have been a nice one to win. I think I made another donkey play, but in retrospect, it might have been good. A player who just came to the table was playing a few hands, and quite fast. I was able to get him to commit with second pair and top kicker, against my top pair, weak kicker. It was a nice hand, but honestly, I think that those plays are not the best against someone you really don't have a read on. Ugh, I think that was one that will go down in the records. I had Q-J suited, and a Donk who had played every hand since they sat down raised it 10x. I called, and another Donk shoved for an extra $0.60ish. Several people called, and when it came back to me, with so much in the pot, I decided to call, and see if I could hit a flop. Well, I hit top pair, and I was commited. I was up against Q-10, 10-9, and Pocket Kings. Bam, Jack on the turn, and a nice little $6+ to me. Overall, this has been one of the most volatile sessions, but honestly, made some good play, got lucky in a few spots, and overall did not go on tilt. Very good thing. So, after all of that, here are the updated stats. PROFIT/LOSS FOR SESSION: $2.76 profit HANDS FOR SESSION: 274 CURRENT BANKROLL: $111.23 TOTAL HANDS AT 2NL: 549
