The new job s going great, i'm really starting to learn lots although I'm only half way thru my training and still spending most of my time down in Southend..... speaking of which, I went to the Maxims casino again last week and played in the £1-2 No-Limit Holdem game cash game. There were 8 players including me and the play was a bt soft compared to the super aggressive online 6 max games. Most guys were just limping in pots and there were a lot of dumb bluffs which were not working out.... anyway I sat down with £100 and played snug to get a real tight image to hopefully alow me to open up and steal more & more during the game. About 30 mins into the game I was dealt J 10 spades, there was one limper and I raised to £8, the small blid re-raised to £18, the limper called and I was priced in to call a further £10. The flop came 8 7 9 and I flopped the stonecold nuts, small blind checks, the limper checks, I fire about £23, the small blind calls and the limper raises another £75, I acted weakfor about minute, then puts my stack in hoping to et the small bind to call the bet, unfortunately he foled and it was just me and the limper, he showed 77 and my hand held up to win a nice pot. I won some small pots after that and left the table with £252, not a bad 2 hours work.... lol.
Online things have been going well too. I managed to win just undr $600 in May despite only playing 2000 hand which is a good win rate.... here are some hands from reent sessions....
I don't hate his turn raise here but once I push he has to fold.....
Standard as they come..
Not a profitable call preflop in my opinion but worked out well for him this hand
I finally make a flush..
Great river card for me, still struggling to put him on a hand when he folds here....
