Good news

My sister had her op today and it went well.No immediate signs of any more cancer but we'll know for sure by next Monday so I'm very relieved but still looking forward to her hopefully getting the full all clear.Visited her today after work and she is doing ok considering the op she's just had.I'll be back up again tomorrow.

Didn't sleep well last night at all and probably shouldn't have been playing poker.I made a right mess of this hand but couldn't let it go.I'd played 9 and this was the 10th and last before watching the dvd we had rented.

Glad we got Meet the Fockers out though.I was feeling like shit and it gave me and Mrs A a good laugh which was well needed.Mrs A went off to bed afterwards and I hit the tables.I'd been awake till past 3am the night before so I decided to play some hands and make sure I thought I would sleep before hitting the sack.

Took my time calling on the end with this hand.Probably an easy laydown for a better player but my finely tuned poker instinct told me he had trip J's or the same hand and once again I couldn't lay it down. This may have something to do with me feeling my Pokertracker "Went to showdown" stat of 24% is low and that I must be giving up when I'm ahead too often.Judging by results in the last few days I think I thinked too much! Heres the hand...

Of course the best solution to feeling very tired and very stuck is to move on up to try and make back the losses! Ok its not but here's a couple of the hands that saved me finishing the night with the bankroll in a dire state.First was a stunning bluff ( well I thought so at the time!) and the second I beat the same guy only I had a hand this time.On the second I would have gone all in but for the flush possibilty.

He asked if I had trips after the hand.I kept quiet but did apologise to him for beating him with a higher kicker in this hand ( as I was leaving!),

That was last night.Tonight the house is quiet and I played a WSOP freeroll on Pokerstars. Never caught a hand and ended up all in with 425 chips with Ks10s.All folded round to one player who thought for ages then called with Qs7s leaving me a happy bunny until the flop came 77J rainbow and with no more help I was out.

Ok my after dinner herbal intake is ready so time to hit the tables...
