Oh Dear. Week 2 Brought a mixture of bad luck, bad play coupled with a twinge of tilt. I lost on 5 of the 7 Days. At the worst of it my Bankroll was down at $713. This means that I had lost 9.6 Buyins on just 5 days and 1500 Hands. I do not know why I lost it....actually I do. It started with this hand. It started with a hand.

The thing that annoyed me the most is that I had that gut feeling that I was beat once the Ace landed. The player, style of play and betting patterns pointed to it. I called anyway and was very annoyed with myself. I was also annoyed that I did not reraise the Turn. I would normally do this. However the hand was played fast. I Have seen this pattern many times. It is very often AA when this happens. The opponent bets the flop, bets the turn heavy and hopes people fall away, then normally bets all-in on the river with the overcards ( and gets stacked by a set or two pair). Thats why I was really annoyed with myself.
Anyway within a short time the hand below happened..... I know it happens all the time but that fact that I lots this 90%'r so soon after the above hand (where I was annoyed with myself) meant I was on a mini tilt.

The worst thing is that this mini tilt co-incided with a period of dried up missed flops, calling stations calling by CB's with nothing and hitting higher pairs on river with 1 overcard etc. However the long of short of it is I lowered my standards. I lost preflop allins with QQ twice, when I knew I was beat. I asked questions with my re-raises and ignored the answers
Hence I Took a day off.
Today I came back on won $200 today playing 1500 hands of standard steady poker
So after 2 weeks I am back where I started. I am having a few days off again as I am taking the girlfriend away, but I will be back on monday with a 1000 Hands.
Hope your week was better...
