It sure felt good typing out that title. Wouldnt mind having that same feeling again within a month.
Started out the day by putting in a 50nl session still on a heater. So backed by that feeling and also knowing i had no good excuse not to take a shot i decided to give 100nl a try. I buy in on two tables to make sure i play my best and to get used to the money. Feeling a bit shaky i play my first hand which i win, then my second which i lose. I quickly realise ill go mad thinking like this and try to just play the game.
I get dealt KK on the button, raise and get called by the SB without any reads. Then a low wet flop comes. I bet and get checkraised. Mind freeze, tunnel vision. So much money at stake. I call and the turn is a blank. He bets into me. I stare blankly at the screen, 15s left and i try to breath and think clearly. In half panic i shove the turn, he calls and turns over a set. I dont feel great but decide keep going with the session. Fairly quickly after that things get normalized and it starts feeling like just another session. I start defending my blind, 3 betting a bit light, calling down marginal holdings when something smells funny and end up taking down the pots i deserve. I open a third table and before i know it my stomach is making funny noises. Thinking it has been an hour i look at the clock and realise its been close to four hours since i started. I end the session, up by a respectable amount and unable to think of a single hand that i butchered. Probably one my best sessions so far even ignoring the results.
So experiences from 100nl. Tabby avatar is tilting, had to block that one quite fast. I know the perfect, obvious counter. Just a shame i dont use an avatar. Also saw a pretty solid tag. Backjamming and CR obvious weak lines. Still feel like i had the better of him though. Aint to hard when he just think your another reg i guess. Tomorrow the plan is to get up to 4 tables and keep playing focused. And hopefully hit that downswing after having this heater. Rather get it over with then anxiously be waiting for it.
