I know I haven't posted on here in a couple of days. Just thought I would give everyone an update. Yesterday was awful. I didn't play well at all and only put in 500ish hands at the cash tables, but lost 2 buy-ins in the process. I also played in a $5.50 MTT in which I made a stupid/donk play with JJ on an 855ss board facing a check/raise. I mistakenly put villain on a flush draw and when the turn came a blank, I shoved over his barrel only to get snap called and shown 65s. Pretty gross seeing how I was about 12th in chips at the time with only about 95 or so to go. Thank goodness I was able to shut it down and retire for the night without any more damage.
Tonight however, was a little different story. Tonight was a GRIND! It's been a while since I have felt that. I did finish up 5 buy-ins after about 3400 hands, but that's probably only because of a few key hands. One was the one below, and it actually happened to be the second to last hand of the night for me. The others were your typical coolers, but this one was a pretty sick hero call. I'm posting it of somewhat a brag, but it's a good feeling when you go on your read, stick with it on the river and are right!
