Trauma Is Back

Trauma is back hitting up the online tables instead of rolling his ass off on the craps tables. Just in time to put a big smackdown on me to. Oh did that hurt. I played it horribly though.

I had KK on the button and Trauma limped in. I knew he was calling any raise I made so I popped it to 4xBB and got us HU. Figured I would take the extra cash when he folded the flop. The board comes out a pretty benign Txx. I lead out here for a pot sized bet of 1/4 his remaining stack. He of course cold calls. Just a tip. If it costs you a fourth of your stack IT IS NOT FLOATING. Anyhow.. I see the ten on the turn and something inside me says I am dooomed. However I go ahead and bet off half my stack and then do not fold to his jam. Very badly played on my part. I knew his range for the flop cold call was basically QQ-JJ, or Tx. With the ten on the turn I probably should have slowed down and definitely folded to his jam. Oh well his JTo was good.

Sometimes I react to what is going on in a hand. This is really bad. I think the best thing I can do for my poker game is take more time deciding on things.

Last but not least I have to give props to PokerPeaker for an excellent play last night. I had a weakish hand so I called his flop bet but did not put any pressure on him. We both checked the turn. Weak on my part. He then fired out a pot sized bet on the river with Queen high. He made a great read that I had a weak pair and stuck with it. He knew I had the ability to fold there sometimes and bet an amount that was half both of our stacks but just a pot sized bet. It was pretty good sizing. Big enough to be scary but not over the top to cause suspicion. Took a lot of balls to fire that bullet. I approve. Another person tried that on me but he made a very small bet giving me odds to call. This is not the way to make this play work. Again props to the Peaker.

You had KK in the BB, I was on the button and open limped @ 40/80 and called when you made it 480 total. I then called an 800 bet that was about 1/5 of my stack about give or take on a Txx flop. Then I caught and you bet too much of your stack to get away once I raised, you didn’t really even think you just insta called  but you are still my main man!!
