First up is an apology for yesterdays poor live game report,mainly due to my terrible short term memory and my belief that my broadband would be down for so long,the live game would be a distant memory.I love reading reports from live games ( Jordans are usually top drawer) and will certainly try harder to note down a few more hands and describe the set up better.
My one night off from online poker seemed to refresh me and I began last nights play by taking down a 20 player $5 turbo at Pokerroom, which boosted my roll there by $40.I played well,stayed out of trouble and my best hands almost all held up.
I was off to ‘Stars after that where I played an 18 plyr $15 turbo and came 2nd for a wee boost to my flagging ‘Stars “take a shot” roll, which is now looking far healthier.
I finished my poker night at Full Tilt where I overplayed A10s.I made my usual 4-5bb raise and was reraised all in by a decent player who I put on a med pair.At this point the pots odds v survival argument was raging in my head as I was getting 3-1 on my call and reckoned I was only slightly behind in the hand. I also tried to assess where my stack would be if I folded,called and won or called and lost.I decided to go for it and the villain showed nines,I didn’t improve and was left with 50 chips.I fought back to 580 chips before going out when I tried to steal with A7 and Mr A5 ( off soot) called and hit a runner runner flush.I’d had a little luck to pull it back but that still stung.
It was too late for another sng so Miami Mark and I hit the cash tables where I lost $2 and MM nearly doubled up after playing Queens strongly and inducing a bluff on the end from Mr Failed flush draw.Nice play indeed.
Ok, thanks for reading….
