Decent night so far. Got some cards and I am up 25BB on one table, break even on the other. I won Dr. Pauly’s contest but I think I am a few days late. I cracked AA with Hiltons on the river. The AA was just calling me to the river! Wow! Perhaps Dr. Pauly will send me a picture of a painting.. lol.
I have been thinking about my game a lot the last few days. I believe this is the only good thing about a dry spell. It makes you either scream at luck, or take a look at your game, or both. I think it has improved a lot but post-flop play still needs a lot of work. I have really been trying to think about my plays in context with the board and the next steps. I.E. Does my 55 make a flush for someone if I hit it on the turn? How many people are likely to see the next card? How much is in the pot? I have a disease in my game I will call “Righteous Indignity Syndrome!” I cannot stand to be bluffed. 22A on the board. Show me your two, because I will pay you off if I have the A! Just because I hate evil bluffers! I exaggerate a little here, but you get the idea. Probably why I suck in NL cash games! So I have been changing that a little, and trying to know when I am beat or will likely is beat even if I get what I want. So what if I make the three of a kind and nobody has the flush. The times they do will cost me more than the ones where they do not. I am not advocating always folding but pick your battles. I think I need tweaks in my game because my usual session holds wide swings, and it just depends if I am on the up or down as to if I win. I think I can limit this a bit.
Man are the Hilton Sisters putting out tonight! I mean like pull out the video camera and spank my behind time. Won a nice pre-flop capped pot with them called to the river by two guys as well as cracking the Aces. Way to go ladies!
