Night and Day

Strange game poker. This afternoon I played a bit less than an hour and could do no wrong. The table broke up with me up me up $31. I was hitting everything. At one point with AJo under the gun the flop came JAJ naturally I got no action even after I checked. I didn't think anybody had an Ace but was hoping maybe for a pocket pair or somebody who thought a King might be good. The turn came a 3 which didn't help anybody unfortunately and then an A on the river sealed it. I bet out hoping somebody would think it was a bluff but they all folded. Still was a neat hand even if it was a small pot.

The best hand of the night was flopping the nut straight on a rainbow flop and having somebody cap the flop and turn with me. He wised up by the river but it was too late and I pulled in $31 on that hand alone.

This evening other than the hand I just mentioned I was either not hitting at all or hitting the second best hand most of the night. I felt totally beat up after around 2 hours of play. I also was down most of the $30 that I was up this afternoon.

Like I said, strange game poker, it can really be night and day in how it goes.

rainbow flop???

The flop is three cards, a rainbow is three cards all of different suits, no worries about flush draws in other words.

Did you delete another entry?

I know you deleted an entry but I'm glad you did because I don't think you need to give up on it. I think you need to relax and not put so much pressure on yourself to make money at it.

I know you play well but luck is a very flaky thing.

Don't give up just enjoy yourself.
