One big problem with reading hands in $2-6 spread is the old men who sit on their hands preflop and it fucks up my game. hands like AK for instance, they dont raise, they just call the $2. everything id learned says that "aggressive poker is winning poker" instead of passive poker, so how do they beat me by never betting their hands preflop?
anyway here is todays hand history. there is 4 out of 6 of us with overs buttons, and 2 of the players are terrible. the other 2 are a good regular (winning about $550) and an asian named Kenny i won $1200 off in one pot at binions a couple years ago when i was doing good, whose generally an experienced player, but tonight he was on tilt and loose and short of money, talking about a dollar loan center place. his roll has dropped substantially like mine. i do NOT have an overs button because i cant afford risking $200 of my roll, especially not when i bought in for $40 and desperately need that win to get my roll back to $1600 from $1400. I'm only still sitting there hoping to hit aces cracked for $100. (the safest way to grow the roll).
so i get AJ offsuit, and remember the game is 6 max. i am in middle position and raise to $8 over the worst player at the tables limp. kenny, on my left calls. (which i dislike). he says he was going to raise if i didnt, and hes been pretty honest and open about what he has. everyone else drops but the limper, whose stuck about $700. Flop comes K93 offsuit, and the limper, whose a notorious bluffer, but tends to check on the turn to me if hes weak, then bluff the river or bet the tiniest of pairs for value. anyway he bets the flop, and im worried about kenny behind me, so i fold. kenny calls. and continues to call on every street. he wins with AT high, no pair, and im wondering if i messed up.
No point in posting hand histories of hands i know i played well, (except maybe to get stakes) the only reason to post hand histories is the ones i played bad to see if i did anything wrong. agree?
i think donkeytax wouldve loved that game, but he hadnt said hardly a word all day, and didnt answer most of his texts. i am not sure if he played the ceasers tourny with vince dealing or not, i know he was going there at 10pm. And of course, no one wanted to hang out with me on my birthday.
out of frozen meals, pot pies, fruit, icecream, lunchmeat, all ive got left is stuff that has to be cooked like noodles, macaroni, and stuff like mashed potatoes u cook in the micro and soups. I need to grab food at walmart, but im so broke i dont really want to keep this another week come wed. i cannot handle any more of these $174 payments. if i drop any more, things will get much worse, ill lose everything, phone, net, etc. hard to play well when under such pressure. got to get these remaining expenses shut off or a ride back to Jean by wednesday. Laundry is about to need done again, dishes need cleaned, and the microwave desperately needs it, and i still wish i was living an easy busride (NOT multiple bus rides) from an omaha8 game.
