Night Two: Two Good to be True
I love living in “Bush’s America”. I know I said I would forget about the politics but this really pissed me off. I was getting all set to watch Private Ryan on primetime American Television and then the Marxist overlords came on and said “Private Ryan will not be seen in some markets because they are afraid of FCC fines!”. God Bless Free Speech, it was great while it lasted. So hopefully that is it for the rants.
I played some 5/10 again tonight. It went a little better. I was beaten down to around $170. Now this is eighty dollars down. You know what? Keep your mind on where you are playing.. eighty dollars is warming up for the night! I think this is what puts most people off when progressing to 5/10. In 3/6 it is almost out, in 5/10 it means nothing. I am not saying I want to start down but I need to keep my head about me and realize what I am playing. So finally the cards come to me. Walla! I am Big Dog! BMOCT (Big Man on Card Table!)! Up almost my entire buying of $250! Sweet. So I break it down and savor another night of 5/10.
It was much less fishy tonight. A lot tighter. However the fishies came by, and became my midnight snack at the right time. A3 calling a pre-flop raise to the river! Cmon! Dummy! Ace high nothing calling the final bet against my flush. Trip Kings was the hand of the night. Flopped it.Played it slow against 3 players, then raised the turn when one guy folded before me, and bet the river. I had it vs either AA or AK. Hold on I checked. Against QQ! Ouchie. Sorry dude, but thanks for the $174 pot! Woo hoo! I think that is what made my night. I also busted out of a 20/2 tourney. Screw those though, who needs the aggravation!
