A while back I found a great offer for Titan poker
and deposited $100 to get $50 free upfront - I played a lot of $0.10/ 0.20 PL Omaha over a few months and gradually increased my balance to $220..nice!
Then last weekend I played a lot and sufferred beat after beat on the river with all my cash in the pot- lost 8 buyins ($7) and was slightly on tilt..
So what do I do? I figure move up stakes to $0.20/0.50 to make it back- another couple of beats later I had lost another $30, so wasnt very happy- went up to $0.50/$1 with $50 and was up to $64..
big hand - I had 8,9,10,J- flop comes 8s,10s,2h - so I raise pot- 1 caller and turn comes Jd- I raise pot and get reraised- think about it and then go allin, putting an extra $40 into a $44 pot
anyway the dude calls with a Qhigh flush draw and hits the flush on river!!
so bankroll down to $35 or so- got it back up to $60 during the week playing more $0.10/$0.20 omaha, then yesterday had another day of nightmares- 6 times was beaten on the river and bankroll down to $6.
The only upside was I had a lot of titan points! (around 2k)
So luckily there was a Private 1.5k points NL $15k freeroll- figure gotta be worth a shot-
Just finished 4th/490 players for $900!!! (in 2nd but all 4 players left about equal- went allin with A8 and chip leader called 90% of stack with 33- no luck on flop otherwise it shouldve been $3.5k - not that I can complain!)
Anyways this is my biggest win by some distance and I'm over the moon- for those who are playing well, but losing and it feels like banging your head against the wall- never give up!!
(might stop playing pl omaha though....)
