Days 3&4, losing with boats :(

March 5, 2011

The first thing I want to do is make a confession. I plagiarized the title of this blog. However it is, i believe, a more forgivable form of plagairism than that of Baron cut-and-paste or Gadaffi’s son, as i have stolen the title from myself. I found my old blog


Perhaps my favourite sentence in the whole thing – “i have 6 buyins which should be enough to see me through the variance if i’m lucky” how little i knew. And variance is exactly what i’ve been experiencing the last two days. I’m 800 below ev and getting coolered for fun. This was probably the most frustrating one -


Merge, $0.50/$1 No Limit Hold’em Cash, 6 Players
Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager – The Ultimate Poker Software Suite. View Hand #8092062

Hero (SB): $99 (99 bb)
BB: $106.35 (106.4 bb)
UTG: $40.49 (40.5 bb)
MP: $108.56 (108.6 bb)
CO: $103.88 (103.9 bb)
BTN: $28.50 (28.5 bb)

Preflop: Hero is SB with K K
UTG raises to $2.67, 3 folds, Hero raises to $9.01, BB calls $8.01, UTG folds

Flop: ($20.69) K 8 9 (2 players)
Hero bets $12.34, BB calls $12.34

Turn: ($45.37) J (2 players)
Hero bets $22.68BB raises to $85 and is all-in, Hero calls $54.97 and is all-in

River: ($208.02) 2 (2 players, 2 are all-in)

Results: $208.02 pot ($3.00 rake)

Hero showed K K and lost (-$99 net)
BB showed T Q and won $205.02 ($98.67 net)

End of day 4 i’ve played 34800 hands and i’m $300 in profit.


I’m going to try to put in a ton of volume the next two days and take advantage of the fishy weekend games.

Finally i want to see a big thank you to everyone following my progress and supporting me via facebook etc. It’s much appreciated.
