I've often worried i might be getting diabetes. my aunt patty had it. i've worried about this because of feeling the need to eat 1 tiny thing often when awaking, no regularly scheduled meals (just eat when hungry) and waking up feeling like i need water. or needing to use the restroom often for small amounts. plus the fact i used to weigh like 140-170 with much smaller waist and now pants under size 36 feel way too tight and i might even need 38 now. now i think i weigh 170-185 somewhere.
Plus, when i left the game tonight to buy food to take to my hotel, i felt i could hardly walk and felt something weird in my legs for the next 5 minutes while walking. while in the first 30 minutes at the table i kept sneezing feeling the onslaught of what felt like a cold coming on too. But i cant have it because vince tested me at his house with a clean needle with his diabetes reader. he says if it over 110 its bad and below 80 is good and i was only 79. over 110 is supposed to mean u have it. its some kind of blood sugar reader.
This has been a fairly decent week. since leaving Fallon with $10,300 before buying my ticket south, i've recovered quite a bit of the loss in Fallon. im now back over $10,900 but i got some lucky breaks after the loss on the hand im about to tell u about. some of those winnings were from sales of bitcoin id won this week too. but i'm not really having many losing poker sessions. ive had so many losing sessions whenever i play other games than poker ive kind of lost the desire to play those games much.
i'm sitting in a full $1-2 game and 2 guys sit who i think might know of me or my blog/twitter. but this 1 guy said ive never played with him before not sure if hes honest. when he first sat, he seemed to either be raising me every time im the big or small blind (or his friend) and they seemed to play all the time. his friend and him were playing tourneys all day. plus he commented on me folding the SB for $1.
so i've been folding lots, kind of bored, but up about $50. im in a hurry to go to bed once im up over $100. i get dealt the monster 2-4 offsuit, and decide to raise the guy who made it $6 on my BB. 3 guys i know cant have enough to reraise, so i go to $36. only the guy stealing my BB calls. Flop comes 953 with 2 clubs. what should i do?
i dont wish to shove because i might need to bet the river. i bet $30 which leaves money behind to bet again. he calls. K of clubs comes on the turn, and i look but i have no club. so im afraid to shove with so few outs for my last $85. i want the turn to go check check so i can shove the river if i miss hitting a pair or straight, and if NO club comes. i dont wish to bet something, because then i feel i wont have enough left to bluff the river. so i check, and he bets $75 of my $85.
i call (my biggest error?) 5 pairs the river, i check he bets my last $10 i fold, shocking the table. he shows nothing but 10-3 offsuit for 2 pair. i feel somehow i butchered the hand and i wouldnt never played it were for it not the strong desire to show a bluff with it, making Grump proud (and me newfound respect in my table). i knew the guy didnt have anything when hes raising me but if i cant make him fold, what good is knowing this info and how do u take advantage of it if u cant get at least 1 playable hand?
