Saved by the ring
Played a couple of $10 sng's to start my night.I should have paid more attention to Sirfwalgman's advice on playing for 3rd then opening out your game.I still feel I was a little unlucky though when my 77 ran into 88 and I went out on the bubble.Jumped straight into another one and was determined to play a tight game early.2nd hand I get the magic Rockets.I raise $250 ( $1500 starting chips) and entice Mr JJ to go all in which I call instantly.J on the flop and out I go.
Moved to the ring games and started at .25nl hunting down shorthanded 10 seat tables with high flop seen/big pots.Made $20 there and had fun before moving up to .50nl where I more than doubled my buy in from $50 to $115.It was going well until one guy started out playing me and my stack shrunk to $80.The final straw was when I held 77 and when a flop of 3 3 6 rainbow was checked to me I bet $2.50 and he checkraised me to $5.I though he was stealing or had the 6 so I reraised him back to see where I was and he went all in for another $107.He was in the sb and could have had the 3 so I folded.He'd been running over the table and I decided that ego has no place in poker and left for a new table.Look for weak opponents not strong ones.
Moved to $1 nl and finished the night $43 up in the ring games and $20 down for my two failed sng attempts.Bankroll now sits at $1352 after my 15th winning session in a row.The last few have been close though and were losing sessions until fairly late on in them.Its a nice stat but the main thing is to play each hand in the right way and hopefully if I can do that more often than not I'll continue to play more winning than losing sessions.
Its a bank holiday weekend in Glasgow so I'm only working 5 hours tomorrow ( double time n half) and its a 12pm start so time to go read some blogs and play some Holdem...
