Small profit in April..

I haven't been playing as much as I would like during April as i have been busy doing other stuff. I have played about 8000 hands with a profit of about $400 but in genera I'm running quite bad, hopefully luk wil even itself out soon... here are some hands played in the last week.

When he just called then re-raised I knew he had either KK or AA and it made mydecision on the flop easy!!!

Maybe I should have just called the all-in from the short stack and pushed on the flop to get AK to fold.

Cold decked here...

Sick river card & he gets there!!!!

This guy was a fish and calling ALL raises & re-raises preflop... hoped to get all his stack here!

Will update again shortly...

Biggest online pot $$$$

Howdy... Ok as I said in my last blog I am starting to play some $1-2 games as I'm feeling confident enough to tackle the 6 man tables. I usually start off taking a couple of knocks at the start of the sessions and find myself down $100/200 but things have been going well in general, I'm up about 3 buy in's ($600) so far and and feel like I'm playing aggresive poker so hopefully it will continue.

Here is my biggest online pot to date.. I was convinced he had the Ace of diamonds as he was just check calling on the flop & turn which made his river push transparrent.. here is the hand

stepping up the aggrssion..

Big laydown here but this guy was playing pretty tight and I'm almost always a 4-1 dog against KK or AA here or at best in a flip with AK.

will try to keep updting regularly, thanks for checking the blog.

playing $1-2 blinds

ok.. it's been while since my last blog and things have been going well lately. I start a new job at the beginning of March and when i handed in my notice my current emplyer put me on "garden leave" for 4 weeks, which basically means I'm on paid leave during my notice period. during the next weeks I'll get all those annoying jobs round the house done which have been left over the past year and hopefully play a bit more poker and increase my win rate...

On the topic of poker I have been playing 6man $0.50/1 tables and full ring (10 man) $1-2 tables.. I would prefer to play the 5 man $1-2 tables but they are too aggressive for me and I play a bit scared in marginal decisions so for now I will stick to the easier 10 m an tables where I feel the action is still good but the players are slightly weaker.

Here are some interesting hands from some recent sessions..

pretty standard...

Ugly flop for a set but happy with rsult.

marginal decision on the river although my read was he was holding A9 or even 10/10.

Nice to bust two opponents in the same hand for a big score...

I will try to keep updating more regular during the next week..
