Weird Night

I am gaining confidence in my 5/10 game. Going up to this level really put me on tilt and I think I am getting back to center. I did blow $500 tonight before bringing back $430 of it. The reason for this was I played some 6-Max and really played badly. At least ten sided slows me down a bit. heh.

One thing that is has been hard for me is getting a 5/10 table! They are always full. So I figured out a secret tonight. Put your name on the waiting list, set the min players to 9, and wait. It does not take very long for you to be seated. I will now stay away from the 6-MAX tables until I learn to play that game right. To be fair to myself I got some odd beats. Trip 8's beaten by trip 8's with a higher kicker! I mean how unlucky is that short handed?

I played a few hands VERY poorly tonight. Especially high pocket pairs. Calling them down to the river with and Ace on the board. Hey guess what, a JJ is the same as a 22 when an AK is on the board! Idiot! At least it did not cost me too much. I have been focusing on my game even more lately. The slight downturn (mostly due to 6-MAX) has caused me to evaluate my play even more. I am now paying ALOT more attention at the tables. I hope to get things rocking now.

The stats are doing well. I have 2.40 BB/100. The aggression numbers are still far too low but higher than they were at 3/6. I am playing a really tight game too. All in all I am thinking I can beat 5/10. It just takes a little adjustment.

After catching up with a month and a half of posts (thank you bloglines) I'd have to say first, congrats on building up to playing 5/10. It's also good to see that you've avoided the bankroll melting explosions. :) Keep it up and hope to see you at the tables in January.

Hey Sloe! Nice to see you around again. Some nights the urge to destroy my bankroll comes upon me, but so far so good. I am working on different discipline issues. Waiting for you to come back in Jan. Got tired of reading about the game testing.. Too jealous and not fun if your not playing. Cya when you get back to Poker!
