AA r teh nutz


Had a slightly better day today and even sucked out on someone. Am still stuck a load this week but am clawing it back steadily. 3 hands that stood out for me today.......

1. AA i 3bet pre and a proficient player calls. Flop 79T and i open shove 80bb's. I thought he could easily have an overpair and/or think i'm spazzing out with AK/JQ or some other weirdness. I think the set is unlikely as he's rarely calling pre with a hand he can usually only win if he hits his set...... setmining is unprofitable would have been an easier way of saying that..... So anyways, he obviously calls and obviously has top set.... FML.... oh wait.... what's that Mr River? I hit my 2 outer!!! WTF???? I rooooon gooooood???? woot woot woot!!!!!
2. AA I open raise and a decent player 3bets fairly big. I've been flatting a fair bit lately but it's been getting me into trouble. I seem to be winning not much postflop or else losing a monster so with my nerves already on edge, and my luckbox completely fucked, i ship it in. He thankfully calls and guess what..........AA fooooookin holds!!! woot woot woot woot!!!! Yeah i know, a standard hand where AA beats an underpair....... well this is how utterly shit i've been running lately..... AA holding is like a big event. Sad innit!

3. TT open raise button called by SB & BB. Flop 9TK. sb 1, bb call 1, btn raise 9, sb shove 85, bb reshove 280 (wtf?????) me? bb plays fairly gambly style but he knows i fairly nitty so shoving 280bb's there would be crazy without the goods. I folded after some thought and they both flipped JQ. I still don't know if my fold was good tbh. I still have 35% equity even if bb does have JQ but can he have like 99/KT/AK there? probs not. Anyways i happy enough when i saw 2xJQ but hated seeing the 9 turn for my folded boat :(


Live poker seems to be drawing me closer. I don't play nearly enough live and have heard there are good cash games in Leeds most nights. Am seriously considering raising some funds to give it a shot. A friend tells me there are often utter maniacs looking to donate as well as the weekend warriors after their night out. Should be easy money but i just don't know how much i can expect to make playing 2/5pl. Is it really worth the hour drive to come home steaming when some donk hits their 2 outer? I just don't know if i'll be able to mentally handle a game where there are bound to be massive swings. At least online i can throw something, switch off and steam in peace. I dunno, i'll probably head down there to play 1/2 for an evening nearer xmas and check out the games. If they look good i'll give it some serious thought and maybe have a crack.


Driving to Manchester tomorrow for a 1st birthday party. No poker til Saturday which is probably for the best.... i could use the break...... and am gonna get utterly hammered!

Keep on asking this type of questions. Money is one of the most weighty points of human life!
