or at least if i didnt play like a fag. man did i do a dumb move earlier today, all because of bankroll considerations over the short term, instead of being worried about what i should be worried about, which is whats going to be in my best interests over the long run.
that being said, im glad to report im back up to $3700. especially when the other day i was down to about $2900. $112 of that win came from some bad news (the hearing that merge wasnt going to be allowing player transfers anymore, so i sold it back to vook before transfers end nov 1.) would like to thank him so much for making sure that money got out of there in time. maybe i should have him sign me up for lock.
another $177 came from a win at VBJ earlier today, and then over $200 more in the golden nugget $1-2 NL game, and at one point i was even winning $120 more in the game, caught myself playing too aggressively on a dumb bluff attempt near the end.
here is the hand in which i feel like i made the worst play ive made in some time. there was a guy at the table who had a fairly large stack and had been winning a lot of pots, although he had just lost 2 pots and was starting to give some back, although he was still the chipleader by a wide margin. i made it $14 in late position with JJ, after many limps, and he is either a blind or in EP and he calls. everyone else got out, as id hoped. flop comes AJ6 he checks. i bet $15, and he made it $30. now what does he have?
i was NOT wanting to give back all id won, (had won about $100 before this hand) and i thought a check raise so little couldve been AA. also there was 2 to a flush on board, so i began to play the hand as if i was a homosexual. turn comes 5, he bets $35 i call. river comes 9 he bets $60 i only call. he has A9 and i feel like a terrible idiot for not raising him, the only hand id had to worry about was aa. surely thats got to be one of my dumbest plays.
