An up and down start in January
An up and down session in January
In similar vein to November, I am attempting to stay disciplined by avoiding the football bets and not getting too downhearted when things don’t go my way on the poker table. I managed to squeeze in a couple hours this evening before going to bed and despite the fact my A ♥️ 10 ♥️ got stacked by KK on a flop of Q ♥️ 4 ♥️ 10 ♠️ I found no joy as the turn and river both hit a blank. Still this is a very strong holding indeed and I was about 50% favorite to win so there was absolutely no chance I fold here for any amount! So I went all in and proceeded to lose my $10 :(
From this point on, things went a bit smoother and I managed to grind it out and win back the money lost, mainly from protected strong hands like top pair KQ and bluffing a few times. Then I got distracted by my girlfriend coming home and suddenly lost another $5 when suddenly a player raised my A J suited on a flop of A 5 8 after I raised on the flop. In the end he went all in on the river for my $20 stack and as I had no clue what he had the only thing I could do was fold!
Some of my other hands won after grinding it out:
This is going to be a super short post today. All in all, there were some real fish out there, which makes things promising, but I just couldn’t give any more time to the game unfortunately. One annoying thing that happened - I hit a full house with pocket twos on a flop of K2K and slow played. The player still in was betting all the way to the river and the deck finished K2KAA. He bet three quarters the pot and I folded. I know I should have called. What would you have done? Leave your comments in the comment box!
I promise to write something more substantial next time!
Thank you all for reading my post.
