El Dorado gold (5/10/08)

Don't know how much gold I could buy with the profit from this visit, but I could if things kept coming up like they did.

Bought in at 4/8 table for $100 and was down to nothing in about an hours after really getting nothing. Rebought for $100 and left the table with $320+ an hour later.

No really big hands, just a couple of good rushes and one player that liked to pay me off.

The tables there look like they are due for some refurbishing soon.

Profit on the Red (5/10/08 - 5/11/08)

Two 4/8 sessions on 5-10 and 5-11 for just under 4 hours total.
Saturday bought in for $100 then got felted after about and hour. Rebought for another $100 and ended up taking away $338 and hour later.

Sunday bought in just before the 10am splash the pot for $100. was down to my last few chips after about 45 mins again. That time A3o in the BB. Flopped a set of 3s. Rivered an A for the boat to bring be back to live.
Later had 74 spades in the BB, flop 8 9 10 all spades. 6 of spades on the turn, two just kept betting and then calling my raise. River was trash and two check callers to me. Put me well on the plus side for the day and I stayed there. Picked up after hour and 45 minutes with a $33 profit.

To go with about $125 profit from El Dorado the night before had almost $300 profit for the weekend.

Thanksgiving weekend

Wasn't too bad of a couple of sessions. It appears that I'm going to have to make sure that I play the second hand every time I sit down.

Saturday night sat down immediately at a 4-8 Limit Hold'em game and got A-A on the second hand. Flopped a set, rivered a boat. Played up and down the rest of the night for some 5 hours. A luck sack cowboy from LaGrange kept everybody on their toes and lots of loose wallets around the table kept the money flowing. Finished $24 up, not bad for first casino cash game.

Sunday morning again immediate seating at the 4-8 table. A Mimi Tran look alike was at the table, but she proved she wasn't with the loose wallet. The second hand I was in would have won a decent pot as I would have turned a set, but after the flop I didn't think I had a chance and threw my pockets away. My two pair couldn't hang with the set on the splash the cash hand.
Late in that session I found myself with pocket 9's in the BB. Called the preflop raise to 8, As the action went around the table the preflop betting got to the limit of 20. I had a good feeling and stayed in. Preflop pot was about $100 with 4 people in. Flop 9 6 6, I knew why I had the good feeling. Since I was first to act and there was already a lot of action I bet, fold, call and call, 3 players. Turn and river no paint, so I bet both with calls from two players.
They had KK and AA, and I took down about $160. Ended that session up $28 in about 3 hours.

Learned allot and looking forward to hitting more cash games in the casinos.
