I had to make a new graph, since I went off the charts in the first one.
Last night was a tough game.
I started off at 300$ buy in only to get completely stacked off by the deep-stack with 800$ behind .....
I flopped a set on a 3c,4h,5h board.
I pushed my set of 3's in with 221$ all in in hopes of keeping them from drawing out on me 2 other players in the hand.
How it unfolded:
Calls around to UTG 3 who raises to 20.00$ pre-flop.
I call with pocket 3's from the HJ (Something I never ever do, knowing that 3's are such a weak hand and am certainly not getting pot odds
, mistake on my part)
Button calls 20.00$ pre-flop.
Everyone else folds
Flop: 3c, 4h, 5h
UTG3 bets out 40$ into a 70$ pot
HJ (ME) Shoves all-in for 222$ with my set of 3's
Button 222$ (Guy flopped a straight with 6/7 off suite and called a raise pre-flop..)
UTG3 calls 222$ all in (has a flush and straight draw with Ace/6 of hearts)
I seriously thought I was good, I was only scared of a set of 4's and a set of 5's. I honestly figured these guys had big pairs or, a flush draw.
When the guy turned over 6/7 off I could not believe he called a huge raise like that with that junk. Oh well bad luck. 1/78 he flops a straight.
This hand had check/fold written all over it for me too. But I never let sets go, ever. It's all or nothing. Unless there is an absolutely amazing reason (Suited boards, this board, Tons of players)
To sum up my story, I was in the hole -450.00$ at one point. By the end of the night though, I ended up leaving with 58.00$ in profit so yes, it took very hard work and just some good playing I guess. Waiting for the right spots to chose.
The last time I had a negative day was maybe the 29th of January. When I do go into the negative I am really tough on myself. I study even harder. Find out where I went wrong, how can I fix this problem etc.
