i knew winning consistently, day after day wouldnt last forever, but it wouldve had i quit when once up $153 last night. instead i lost the $100 i was in the game for, rebought $41, had that back up to $180 and then started losing steadily about 5am when shorthanded. rebought $100, lost, and then rebought the remaining $1000 i was going to deposit in the BOA atm up the street.
when i got home, i had $257 left of the $1241. not a good day at all and i made a really bad shove, and also lost several times with JJ.
the hand i lost well over $650 on, i had convinced the whole table i had JJ that hand too, and i need to start making more huge sized bluffs. for no matter how strong peoples hands are, they are reluctant to call me when i bet that much, and if they had weaker hands instead of monsters all the time, id get away with the bluffs. what i really had that i made it $26 with, 4 handed, into his $5 straddle, was AJ clubs. only he called.
flop comes 69T with 2 spades, a horrible flop, but id already bet $50 dark. he makes it $145 (thinking hes betting $150) and i was convinced he had a pair at best, and most likely a flush or straight draw, in which case id be ahead at the time. so i shoved allin for $1000, and he thought a while and called $661 total. turns out he called my raise of his straddle with 10 6 offsuit, and flopped 2 pair. had he had only 1 pair, im convinced he wouldve laid it down. so its hard for me to think i played the hand badly. i do feel like not quitting while still ahead, or rebuying $1000 were poor decisions though, or playing shorthanded.
on the way home i stopped in the store and bought dishsoap so i could fix some food in the microwave dish, but i couldnt find any honey so i need a bigger store. and now i must rest.
