Now yesterday i went to the Sante Fe to play, and to begin with all i could play was $3-6 limit when the AA promotion was going on, and i managed to win $67 in it. was lucky to do so, was stuck quite a bit when i suddenly won 4 pots in a row--2 were kill pots. and as soon as the NL opened shortly about 12 noon i moved.
couldnt get a hand for nothing in the NL, kept adding to my stack $20 or so here and there--and eventually was in the game for $208. was down to about $70, and then somehow worked it back to $196 (and really shouldve quit) when the following hand occured. for the longest while it wasnt a good game, but it was starting to loosen up finally.
guy straddles the button for $5, multiple callers, i call with 88. guy near button makes it $11. straddle calls, so does everyone else. i call. flop comes KQ8 with 2 hearts and i know giving free cards wouldnt be wise as much as is in the pot and as draw heavy as the board is. checked to me, i bet $60, and one of the guys puts me allin, (not the raiser or the straddler) i call (someone told me i cant fold there or even consider it) and theres so many hands i can beat hes right. figured his most likely hand is KQ, but no, he had KKK and didnt raise the straddle or the raiser. go figure.
and thats why i went out and threw away $217 in the spin poker 96% payback there last night. went home to vinces pissed, and slept. lost only $5 playing on UP a short time between last night and this morning. id play MORE on UP if the game selection wasnt so lousy. am still holding $928 on UP.
so today i rode the bus to the nugget, to play in better games and avoid the pitfalls of getting stuck in limit and then feeling the only way to get it back is to play things i shouldnt. (was hoping $2700+ was still enough to afford NL). i bought in $100, and slowly kept adding to my stack when i wasnt getting cards til i was in the game for $157. (eventually cashing out $221). thats when i knew i had too much on the table and went to take the break.
there were 3 or so bad players and a lot of regulars, and one of the bad players is who i won from. i limp the other $1 with K3 spades. flop comes Q97 with 2 spades, and i call his $5 bet. id commented about if i could get away with a check raise there (id just did it the hand before with trips and won a small pot off same guy)
turn comes Js for flush, i check, he bets $10, i bet $25. he calls. river comes blank, i bet $30, he puts me allin, i call, he flopped 777. everyone but him knew i had the flush.
but i still think the commerce is better--u see there i cannot play machines at all--and i couldve just moved tables for the min buyin--instead of having to take this hour or so break before i can sit back down with $100 instead of risking the whole $221. and not one person at the nugget mentioned my last blog post, and Crystal dont work that early in the day. i told u none of them read the blog.
Cizzle is a blooming idiot if he thinks im not the one posting. and i forgot when mormon in vegas is going to be in town. snevman will too soon i think.
