4-27-06 I got home yesterday to an empty house so I sat down to play some cards. I only played one table since I was very tired from staying up to win my home game the night before. My cards ran very good and since I was only playing one table I found every opportunity to take advantage of my opponents weaknesses.
1st session: 1 hr 45 min and won $8.80 over 99 hands 25.38 BB/100 Hands.
I got off right after my wife came home and watched a movie with her. When she fell asleep on the couch I decided to play some more despite telling myself that I wouldn't play any that night due to only having gotten less than 4 hours of sleep. Note: Discipline broken!
I immediately ran up to a profit of $8 or so playing very squeaky tight as I had done earlier in the day. Then I had some luck box sit down and suck out against me w/ his short stack 2x with all the money going in pf. He only had $2 or so when we started so I was happy to call his all in reraises w/ my AKs and AKo. He had 10-8s in the same suit as my AKs one time and flopped trip 10s and the other I had him dominated and he hit the miracle on me. This sent me into monkey tilt and I lost my whole profit along w/ $19 more and a ton of sleep because I kept refusing to get up and take my losing pill.
2nd session: 4 hr 45 min for a loss of ($19.25)
I finally went to bed around 2 am again and was up bright and early with my son at 7am.
4-28-07 The wife had a class today so I got the yard mowed and my hair cut, then sat down to make some of my money back. My friend called/pulled up right as I was getting loaded up and we 2 tabled at $10/NL. I got hit in the face w/ the deck and quickly jumped up $15. I held onto this over the hour or so that I played.
Morning session: 1 hr for a win of +$13.80 and 66 BB/100 Hands over 104 hands.
Oh yeah, I played 4 $2+.25 SNGs this morning and won one and finished OOTM on the other 3 for an absolute zero on profit/loss.
And just for kicks and because my buddy was here we decided to try our hand at HORSE and HA. I bought in for the minimums and good thing that I did. I immediately lost my $4 buyin at $10/HA, I mean within 10 min. it was gone. I did get all my money in pf against a maniac in a dominating position and he of course hit his worse kicker to suck out on me.
HORSE went slightly better, I played at least an hour on it and only lost $3 over both the tables that I was playing. This game seemed very beatable and looked to have a few sharks on it who were preying on the weak fishes. I played so tight that they would have a hard time getting my money, but a lot of folks were missing what game we were playing at the time. One guy blew up a RAZZ pot w/ 2 pair on 4th street and took it all the way down to the river. One of my goals when I get this bankroll built will be to learn all of those games well enough to be competitive at them and play HORSE more often.
Mixed game session: 1 hr 30 min, loss of ($7)
With a deposit bonus from FTP my bankroll stands at $57 even.
PT stats on $10NL are 23.74/9.44/3.81 My W$SD% is 52.34% and I'm +$8.85 over 2700 hands. 1.64 BB/100 Hands. Not what I was hoping to have at this point, but at least I'm in the positive. I'm gonna try to remain more disciplined and force myself to get up sooner when I am losing.
