Woo YAY!!

I decided I was being a little ambitious jumping straight back into 3/6 after the problems it has given me in the past with controlling myself AND the fact that I’ve had a pretty damn rough time recently and had to withdraw that 30% of my roll.

So I dropped down to a combination of 1/2 and 2/4 for the moment and I’ll be playing those levels just to hopefully give my bankroll and confidence a bit of a boost and get back on an even keel before going back into the fire.

And once again poker went back to being fun. Admittedly the games were outrageous, all game created, all had 2-3 fish who I’m pretty sure were paste eaters and the games oh so passive.

Why is it no-one ever gets what they deserve when they do this BS slowplay? Hit your 4-outer and slowplay it so I can miss my 10-outer. The other dowside to his play obviously being that no-one at 2/4 and below is capable of bluff raising the river so bet-3-betting the river is completely out whereas I may have been tempted to do so on the turn but of course that never passes their minds as they congratulate themselves on being EXPERT.

Oh wait, they occasionally do get what they deserve :)

Very satisfying this was too.

But overall a bit more content although still not back to my best, I missed a couple of value bets/raises imo so got to improve there a bit.
