Jog: No (13/20)


Ran pretty well again today. So good results even though I couldn't get that many hands in. Friday night drunken maniacs at the table were a bonus as always. I played a 16/10/1.75 today.

I made 2 blunders today. One was just misreading the board on the river (not seeing that it had paired, and shipping my stack in with a flush). Just make sure you double check boards.

Second one was more avoidable even though I didn't lose much. The hand is here.

Poker Stars, NL Hold'em Cash Game, 8 Players - Hand History Converter

Pre-Flop: K K dealt to Hero (CO)

UTG calls 1BB, UTG+1 raises to 4BB, 3 folds, Hero raises to 16BB, 2 folds, UTG calls 15BB, UTG+1 raises to 40BB, Hero calls 24BB, UTG calls 24BB

Flop: (120.4BB) 6 7 8 (3 Players)

UTG checks, UTG+1 bets 60BB, Hero folds, UTG raises to 120BB, UTG+1 raises to 184.4BB and is All-In, UTG calls 64.4BB

Turn: (489.2BB) T (2 Players - 1 is All-In)

River: (489.2BB) 4 (2 Players - 1 is All-In)

Results: 489.2BB Pot (24BB Rake)
UTG showed 6 6 (three of a kind, Sixes) and WON 466.2BB (+241.8BB NET)
UTG+1 showed K K (a pair of Kings) and LOST (-224.4BB NET)

In the above hand, a dumb nit reg (20/2 and doesn't understand set mining math) limped UTG, a random raised and I reraised with KK. The nit cold called and the random raised again fairly small. I just called here and of course the nit called as well.

I got out on the flop for 2 reasons.

#1 I thought there was a good chance the random had AA.
#2 The nit reg was yet to act and that flop nails his set mining range.

The correct way to play this hand was to shove preflop for these reasons.

#1 Don't fold or get cute with KK preflop to randoms ever. Always ship it in given the chance.

#2 You are freerolling over the nits dead money cuz he never has AA here and will always fold preflop.
