First day back always sucks....

Well fired up Pokerstars for the first time this month and sadly things didn’t go well for our hero and I ended up shipping ~$300.

I’m not sure I played too well to be honest at least in a couple of hands:

Firstly, things go ok when I spew….

Pre Flop: (1.333 SB) Hero is CO with Q Heart T Diamond
2 folds, Hero raises, 2 folds, BB 3-bets, Hero calls

Flop: (6.333 SB) 7 Diamond J Heart 7 Club (2 players)
BB bets, Hero calls

Turn: (4.167 BB) 4 Club (2 players)
BB bets, Hero raises, BB calls

River: (8.167 BB) T Club (2 players)
BB checks, Hero bets, BB calls

Final Pot: 10.167 BB
BB mucks 8 Club 8 Spade
Hero shows Q Heart T Diamond (two pair, Tens and Sevens)
Hero wins 9.833 BB
(Rake: $2.00)

This is bad in so many ways on the turn imo, my reasoning at the time was than he was a pretty tight TAG and I could maybe get him off A and K-High which is ok in theory, but being so tight his range is made up of a lot of pairs and BIG A-High’s on that board and I don’t think he folds often enough. Fortunately I redeem myself a little by recognising what’s happened and getting in the river Value Bet.

Floppin the nuts is also ok when you’re opponent is a monkey:

CO raises, 1 fold, Hero 3-bets, 1 fold, CO caps!, Hero calls

Hero checks, CO bets, Hero raises, CO 3-bets, Hero caps!, CO calls

Turn: (8.5 BB) 6 Club (2 players)
Hero bets, CO calls

River: (10.5 BB) 5 Spade (2 players)
Hero bets, CO calls

Final Pot: 12.5 BB
CO mucks K Heart Q Heart
Hero shows J Heart K Diamond (a straight, Ten to Ace)
Hero wins 12.167 BB
(Rake: $2.00)

However thing’s didn’t continue in that vain for our hero as for some reason I got put under the pussification ray and also started to miss the board:

ladies and Gentlemen pray silence for the worst played straight in the world…

BB shows 9 Spade 8 Club (a straight, Seven to Jack)
Hero shows K Spade K Heart (two pair, Kings and Sevens)
BB wins 6.833 BB
(Rake: $2.00)

This hand I HATE and I’m pretty sure I got shoved off the best hand…it was vs a certain bear who’s moved down to 3/6 recently:

Pre Flop: (1.333 SB) Hero is BTN with 6 Club 6 Spade
2 folds, CO raises, Hero 3-bets, 2 folds, CO calls

Flop: (7.333 SB) K Club 3 Spade A Spade (2 players)
CO checks, Hero bets, CO calls

Turn: (4.667 BB) K Heart (2 players)
CO checks, Hero bets, CO raises, Hero folds

Final Pot: 6.667 BB
CO wins 6.5 BB
(Rake: $1.00)

At the time I figured to either be 70% favourite or dead but I forget this is LHe and that was a 3-bet pot, I think it’s perfectly possible he’s on a draw and I shouldn’t be making habits of folds like this moving up. I dunno, maybe I’m over-thinking but I’m sure this isn’t a fold at the moment. I’m getting 4-1 to see a SD and I can probably fold all spades on the river so is he bluffing ~20% of the time…maybe, maybe.

There were also a couple of hands where I pussed out because the river was the worst card possible and X/c instead of B/f or x/f which annoy me becasue it’s such an exploitable play and I should be getting past that now.

Eh, hot streak wasn’t going to last forever but at least I’m back at it now. I was quite happy actually since despite it being my biggest losing session ever I didn’t tilt in the slightest, I guess that 750BB bankroll worked it’s magic or maybe I’ve finally started winning that particular battle…we’ll see.

Gotta catch up with the great Elephant soon anyway…wonder where he is…
