yesterday started off poorly in the nugget due to me making a very good read, so i started off behind and stayed behind until the very end. this is how the good read went down, which took place right after i first got seated. i got dealt KK, raised it to $15 in late position, the button calls, the SB calls and the guy who originally limped UTG makes it $60. well i knew he had a monster hand, so i laid the KK down, everyone folded, he shows QQ. and since id just sat down, the most id lost wouldve been $100.
eventually i got stuck $316, and ended up moving tables more than once from games breaking. ran into a woman who reads my blog i didnt know about who was on 3 of my tables. i finally rebought for $700 the final time, (much more than i should) but i did better off the bigger buyin, which is almost always the case. i didnt recover the money, but i did cash out $964 of the $1016. then the game broke.
originally i decided to go home, but i ended up going in the wynn instead. the $1-3 was full, so i sat in the $2-5. a group of 4 guys who appeared to be middle eastern foreignors (mostly) came in and i could hear them talking from the desk about wanting to play $1-3 but they decided to also play $2-5 and they joined my game, making it 9 handed now. (about 10 minutes after i had sat). so when they called me for $1-3 i decided to stay where im at, thinking it might be a good game.
i get all in preflop with ak suited, with 2 callers. this is when im down to only about $130 left, and one of the looser players (who lost about $700 and left broke with his girl watching in a short time) had originally raised to $35. one guy calls, whose new and i shoved. flop comes AT4,6,4 and it looks like its getting checked around again on the river. too bad i couldnt bet the flop. then the first guy suddenly says he didnt check, throws out $100. he backdoored the flush with k3 clubs, since there was only 1 club on the flop he wouldve been out.
i rebought $262 (if u are wondering why i didnt rebuy $264, the other $2 went for bus fare to the wynn) and proceeded to do better off the bigger buyin. eventually i had it up to $403, when the big hand id been waiting for all night took place. i limped UTG with aa, a guy made it $30 another guy calls, the loose foreignor (only one of the group still there) bets $60, and i shove, hoping for only 1 call, but if not, the $120 plus in dead money will get me close enough to even to quit for the night seeing ive played many hours. everyone folds but the loose guy, and i dont remember the board but its 5 cards something like 367TQ with no flush out there. he looks at his cards so long without giving them up, then showing them to his neighbor, i fear im about to be slowrolled big time. then he finally mucks, what a sense of relief. i quit then of course on my BB.
got my uber, buy some food in the Vons store then go home. new roll $17,200. of course it was $19,200 when i took the 5 weeks, and its getting awful close to july 28th when the 5 weeks are up and ill need to be back to $19,200 by then.
i finally got to meet the girl in person cdizzy wanted me to meet back in January. a girl named amber from austin tx who plays lots of tourneys in OK cali and vegas but very little cash. shes friends with some famous player named aaron fong whoever he is. her and her friend cheryl were in the Planet h tourney and i stopped by to offer an icecream sandwich and say hi. she said she would see me downtown later then never did the next day she said she would meet up, then the next thing i knew she returned to austin without ever doing so. i wouldve sworn cdizzy was very sure she wasnt taken and liked my photo, but it didnt seem this way from seeing ambers facebook posts. seems she was in love with some guy in vegas this year which recently ended. i think ill have ray find me a girl, its better is moslem or other traditional countries, where men dont need to look and a girl is arraigned for them when they turn 21.
