So I took $1k out of carbon leaving me $170 to screw around with online and decided t play live mainly from now on. Went to my local poker room to play for the first time being a somewhat serious poker player and did okay. Played for about 7 hours and was up $27. Considering I got sucked out on big time for a $200 pot and accidentally tabled my cards with one person left in the hand and tipped decent with approx. 10% rake too, I think I did well. The suck-out hand is below:
table limps around and I limp behind with 33 in the cutoff.
flop comes K38 and I bet once checked to me and get a caller to my right.
turn comes K and I bet again and get check/shoved on by the caller for a $200 pot.
river comes a 10 and he shows TT to hit a boat and 2 outter.
The players were all pretty bad and there were some aggro internet kids there too who I never really played a hand with. Everybody limps so much and I still think the games are probably profitable even with the crazy rake and tipping. I will check back in a week with updates on how live is going.
