Dismal Failure

Well.. the no weekend experiment was a dismal failure. I might have to call Gamblers Anonymous. I can see the conversation:

"GA, Do you have a gambling problem?"
"How Much have you lost"
"Well, Actually I have made $3400."
"WHAT! You don't have any problem! Stop crank calling us!"

I am going to try to be a good boy next week. I had a good session finally. After a bunch of down 500 up 500 session I finally went ahead and stayed there. I am up 200 bucks. Not a huge win, but it feels good. I just need to trust my play and keep a reign on my play.

I could have been up alot more tonight except I made a stupid move. I had a flush draw, and I hit 2nd pair. I was getting raised from the two spots in front of me. I figured they were both on a flush draw and decided to play. First mistake. I ended up with my pair being beaten by two pair, and the AK of the flush draw missing his flush. So basically I was drawing dead. Need to walk away from that on the first raise.

On a fun note, I made a nice hand with The Hammer. I am not a devote, but I like winning with it:

So I will probably get a few days in this week. I have Friday off of work and might play because I do not get paid when I miss work. Not sure. Might just enjoy myself and make it up to the family.

Sadly the hammer is more profitable then AKo for 15,000 hands on pokertracker. I'm going to start mucking slick and ram/jam with the hammer.

I often wondering when AKs or AKo is less profitable than other hands.. I think everything depends on how you play it. The hardest thing is knowing when to let it go. That gutshot straight looks good, or having two over cards just to get beaten by trips or two pair. I think it works best when you know how to fold it.

Out of 20k hands of limit poker, these are my winning percentages...

AA - 71%
KK - 65%
QQ - 57%
JJ - 57%
AKs - 48%
AKo - 41%
Hammer - 2%

But I probably have not been playing the hammer correctly.
