Tues update

I'll keep it short after a long day if that makes sense.Got my tooth taken out today and then attended Mr A's Mum's funeral.There was a large turnout and the weather was sunny.Just wish there was more I could do to help Mrs A but I guess time is the only healer.

Played poker after Mrs A went to bed last night and despite my toothache managed to have a decent night,winning $25 at Ladbrokes and $40 at Interpoker.The hand below was my favourite of the night.I was going to value bet the river but decided if the villan had a 7 or a high heart I may get called so moved in...

Hehe, gotta love the straight flush. I like the all-in move too - people seem compelled to call these thinking they are a bluff or something. I'm not sure what the mindset behind calling a $60 bet into a $2 pot, but I see the good winning players do it a lot at the $25 NL tables and they get called a LOT. I gotta start doing that more.

I'm learning to read the board and if I think there's a decent chance the villan has a good 2nd best hand I'll bet big.I hate making small value bets which are insta-called when I could have got more out of them.
