Quick update again. Not making much progress. Lots of up and down but mostly ending sessions on top or level. If the bad days are flat and the good ones +ive then it will all work out alright in the end. Only $44 up after 6K hands at 10NL. But itâ€™s a start.
This evening was a 4 hour session battling just to finish $1.50 up â€“ but as I was $15 down after about 30 mins, Iâ€™ll take this one as a moral victory. Helped in no small part by the biggest comedy fold Iâ€™ve ever seen.
Check this out below. Yes â€“ he folded for a bet of $0.10 on the river, into a pot of $8.80 â€“ after putting $3.70 in already. Seriously â€“ I nearly fell of my chair. I can only assume he meant to go all in on the turn but missed $0.10 on his bet slider. But then to fold!!!!!!!!!!!!! It wasnâ€™t even a mis-click. He actually stopped to think about it!
I mean, you can criticise my play if you want â€“ a bit of a tilty call on the turn, looking for the miracle 2,3,or 7 â€“ but no-one can fold for their last $0.10 on the river here. Iâ€™m calling here with an old tissue and Snickers wrapper! He left the table shortly after, suitably LOL â€“ ed to death in the chat box!
