I made 1 dollar today

Pretty happy about that. Was down the standard 4 or 5 buyins, can't win a pot to save my life etc. Took a breather, bike ride, and decided to try my luck again. Very first hand KK into AA...mad monkey tilt. I just started moving stacks after that in a tilt induced blur and managed to get back to even.

This one was my favorite. Villain is a 14/11 type reg. He tanked the flop all in call for a good 10-15 seconds.
