I am back to playing some poker. I am going to try and play consistently and stuff again. I'm going to ditch the 10k challenge. Its kind of a stupid idea. I just need to play and play some more. Plus I cashed out about a third of my bankroll recently so the numbers will be skewed. Also b/c of this I will be playing NL50 for the next few weeks or so.
Anyways, I would like to do something crazy like play 100k hands in August. I have played close to 7k over the past few days and even tho things didn't go so well, it feels good to be back playing.
So I will change the blog once again and list hands played, hands needed for 100k, results and I will now include daily rakeback also.
This is beyond bad on my part. This is versus the biggest nit in the universe, like 14/2 or something lol. I honestly have no clue what I was thinking. I am editting this part the day after I posted this b/c this hand pissed me off so much.
This hand, I played terribly on every street except preflop. I should have raised the flop. And against this type of opponent, I can find a way to fold this and save half a stack or so. The reason I can get away here is b/c versus this guy, the best I can hope for is a chop. He never has air here. He never has AK here. He never has AJ here. He has exactly QQ, JJ, or the other AQ (which may be freerolling, as was the case here). My equity is obv bigtime fucked against this range.
Against the majority of opponents, I don't mind going broke here. I was so mad at myself after this hand b/c I knew this was a clear fold. I haven't played in months. This guy is a mega nit regular who is still playing the same stakes, surprise surprise. And has been one of my bigger donators in the past, from just stealing pots from him. Then I give him a gift. Sigh.
