Had a couple of strange weekends on the poker recently, 2 weekends ago I played 1500 hands and was only all in 3 times, losing all three, but still managed to make a profit of $250.
First was the ‘bad beat’ shown in the previous post when my full house got beaten by quad aces on the river.
The second was similar, I had pocket Jacks beaten by pocket 6’s , my pair was an overpair to the board and I lost when he made trips on the river.
The third time was my fault, I got a little impatient with the table lunatic and pushed all in pre-flop with AK only to run into KK.
Last weekend in contrast was a bit of an all in fest, Friday night I was down $300 in double quick time, so Saturday I started playing with the intention of getting back even.
By lunch time I was down another $300 and not feeling too great.
Things did improve later though and I recovered to a total loss over the weekend of $130 and a loss for the week of $80 which felt like a win from being $600 in the hole.
Rakeback will cover at least half of the loss so things not too bad overall
I also discovered this site : http://www.pokertableratings.com/ which is useful for checking out your opponents as well as seeing how your mates are doing and taking the piss out of the losers.
Its not perfect as it seems to be missing quite a few sessions, dissapointingly for me they seem to be winning sessions so I look even worse than I actually am...lol
Double coin flip lunch this week, Dan lost them both, so not only did I eat for free (again) but I'm still freerolling courtesy of Tim and the half marathon wager, who says there's no such thing as a free lunch ?
