Unlucky for Some

It's all gone a bit pear shaped in the last week. I can almost track it to a single hand during the O8 FTOPS, when I tilted a lot after playing well for about 2 1/2 hours, and losing a pot against a short stack for about 4k, out of a 14k stack. Since that time I have not cashed in 13 STTs, as well as dropping $150+ on O8 rush tables. Bit frustrating all round really, including my out hand in the last STT.

In the BB with 1700 chips and A356, button has 475, chip leader is SB with 6k+. Folds round to SB who bets 1k, so I push He turns over KKJ10 and the board gives me no help at all and I am gone. I could have tried foldingd into the money, but that would have meant I had less chance of winning overall.

Ah well, time for bed and will be back again tomorrow.

End of March Round-up

Not much to report since the last update, apart from a welcome continued upward trend in my gross rake and profit for the month. Overall profit about $380, despite a complete failure yesterday when I dumped $80 in pretty short order. Now in profit on the Rush O8, but it has changed my game so that I can no longer hit a barn door on the STTs. Managed to earn a total of $115 rake back for the month, which is like 4 months of normal payments. This cash game could become addictive.

Hotel booked for my Vegas WSOP trip, decided to stay in the Rio so I can fall out of bed and roll down the stairs to the games.
