Hesh's Poker Story Part 2 - Ooops...YAY!
Well, I decided to connect back into the poker room today and played in a number of games: SitnGos, 50/$1 limit, and had approzimately $60 of my initial $70 that I started with. So, being a little bored and feeling back on my game I enter the 50/$1 NL room with half of my bankroll($30).
I sit down, watch a hand, then decide to post my big blind in late position. Dealt JJ, I'm pleased to raise $4 and get a couple callers. Flop comes JQK rainbow. I decide to not slowplay and raised all in. Everyone folded. ($50 at table now). Played a number of boring hands in between and have $45 when the following BACK to BACK hands come up.
Dealt A10s, I raise to $4. Get one caller, the guy to my immediate left. The flop comes rainbow trash (nothing higher than 9). And with no straight possiblity. I bet $1, he calls. The turn is an A, I bet $1, he calls. The river is a Q, I bet $1, he raises me to $7, I go to click the CALL button, and accidently hit the raise button (another $6 on top to make $13). OOOOOOPS. He calls, I show my Aces, he mucks. YAY!
Dealt A10s, (That's right the same hand, different suit). I raise again $4, and have the same guy call. Flop comes A,10,9 rainbow. I bet $10 and he calls. Turn is Q, and I'm a little concerned now about a straight draw, so I raise $19, which is exactly what he has left. He calls showing 87off, and when a 3 comes on the river, I take it down. SCORE!!
Well. I'm much happier than yesterday, my bankroll is back over$100 and I'm feeling my game has stregthened.
Stay tuned, we'll see how fast I can blow it tomorrow!!
