Evan : If anyone finds this, it means my plan didn't work and I'm already dead. But if I can somehow go back to the beginning of all of this, I might be able to save her."The Butterfly Effect"
Bloody good movie I say, saw it for the first time the other night. If you watch the DVD have a look at the alternate endings, I'm pretty certain they went with the right one.
Well faithful readers, I am now certain that the poker Gods hate me for some reason. I just can not win a bloody hand. At one stage, playing two tables I had pocket Aces at both tables! Here is the result:
TABLE 1: Strong pre-flop raise from middle position. The big blind re-raise all in, and I have to follow. He flips over KK, so now I think I am in a good position - well, slightly better than a coin flip. The flop? KKx. Buh bye!
TABLE 2: Strong pre-flop raise, 3 callers. Flop comes AKJ. One bet, I raise get called. Turn and river are rags, and the other player flips over QT for a flopped straight. Buh bye!
It's amazing how often my hands are playing backwards. If I get AK-AJ, the flop will be six high. If I am dealt 24o and fold, the flop will come 442. When I get sick of folding away the nuts, I try to see a flop with 68o it comes out AJJ. I am lost for words, and very much down on every session. I did manage to place second in a $5 SNG when I lost heads up with A8s to his KJo. What can you do?
My Aloha account is now dry, but to be honest it was going nowhere anyway. I guess I will continue to throw the dice on the free rolls there and try to build it once more. I think Pacific is still over $100, but only just. I am just lost for words (well, obviously not literally as i'm still writing) for how bad and how long this dry spell is going. Even a day with $1 profit would be good at the moment. It's not just that premium starting hands are very rare, but when I do get them they get spanked by shit cards or pay off is miniscule. If the bank roll was to go bust I don't know if I could try to build it again. Oh well, "what can you do"?
I'm still not getting the limit game. It seems impossible to push people off a pot and they hang in for the river (which seems to hit them 80% of the time). This is probably because I am playing the lower limits, but surely I should be seeing some better cards than I am. Perhaps I have over-estimated my own poker skills? Perhaps, as I have only been at it for 3 months really. I guess I should just keep plugging away and see if I can improve.
Not much else to talk about really. Guess it's probably best that I end the post here then.
