Jekyll and Hyde
Well I wasn't sure I was really in the mood for poker last night so I began with a $5, 20 player turbo at Pokerroom.I called an all in bet on the turn with a flush draw ( the King overcard persuaded me) and realised that I was not in the mood for patient poker.With that in mind I began a play money sng and had some fun.I was twice all in preflop with the hammer and announced it preflop in the chat box.The hammer won both times ( the first on the river) which gave me a laugh.
I then moved to a Laddys $100 nl full ring table and began treading water for a couple of hours.I folded a set of 3's which I slow played into trouble by the river,played a few pocket pairs,stole a few blinds and generally made no real headway at all.The set of threes hand got me wondering if my last few months of at best break-even poker have put me on subtle tilt.The kind of tilt where I'm desparate for a big score to make my poker world ok again.The pot was only $3 post flop with a flush draw and runner runner straight draws yet I was fearful of betting and taking it down without maximising my profits.
The being in the right mood for the game problem is worrying.After dinner at night I'm so tired from working all day and being up late the night before that I could fall asleep ,yet around 11pm I seem to come to life and by the time I go to bed at 12.45am I feel as if I'm on my "A" game and could play all night.
I'm up early for work tomorrow though as its the boys Xmas night out.It's unofficial so we don't need to watch what we say or do because it's work related.Unusually for a Scotsman I'm not much of a drinker,much preferring the herbal side of life but I aint tee-total and I'm looking forward to a good bevvy tomorrow night.I just need to remember when I get home not to log onto any of my poker accounts as things could get very messy.
Ok,thanks for reading....
