So I got up and did my pup walk and then just got rocked for around 45 minutes. The only action was HU PLO and AA no good to AK aipf. Whatever.
I took a few minutes, sat back down, got some HUNL action. I c/râ€™d a Ah7c3C with Qc9c and got called. Bing Ac turn. Nobody folds an ace in that spot and Iâ€™m bet/folding the turn to an unknown. So I bet big he calls. The river is a ten so I lose to AT and only AT here.
He had AT.
Now, vs. some better players I think Iâ€™m drawing dead on the turn sometimes, and maybe canâ€™t b/f the turn but vs. unknowns I think stacking off there is not only standard, itâ€™s +EV.
Like 5 hands later he revealed himself as an overaggro MSNLâ€™er. I had not been 3-betting much, but he did decide to 4-bet call it off with 33. Someone the bottom-ish of my range (AKo) hit and I was on a comeback.
Got some 15/30 action @ LHE thereafter. The session was too long. I shouldnâ€™t have played as long as I did. I got tired and I got sloppy. I played a horrible player for an extra 45 minutes for an extra $45.
Donâ€™t look at the cashier. Donâ€™t â€œplay until the left numbers are 00â€ or something stupid. I know this, yet I let myself relearn it today. Thatâ€™s the price you pay for getting a little rusty.
Too late now for me to play. Iâ€™m exhausted for some reason. Iâ€™ll be back to the tables tomorrow. Wish me luck!
