Pretty much was at a table with calling stations. Dude calls .45 cents with 79 and flops a 7 and calls my raise. Of course i throw him all in not even thinking he is holding two pair on that board and I get bailed out by the ace on the river.. thank you poker gods.

Lol, lucky you for a change. With the $10 MAX you really need a strong stomach sometimes, I'm guessing you know this already. Personally I find it almost unplayable, but I'm sure its me reason being I lose my patience very easily when they keep catching on me like this guy almost did. I don't mind getting beat by legit hands, like for ex I have KK, I raise, get called by TT and they hit their T. I know its a tough loss but at least they called me with a legit hand, and maybe next time I'm the one catching the T. But AA to 97...lol, I can't take it.

The $25 MAX is much better though, and the $50 MAX is pretty decent poker, so luckily the jump isn't too high for a better game.

Slowly trying to grind it out and build a bankroll to support it. I started reading some books and over the past three days my play has improved dramatically just based on some things I have read. I have had a few winning sessions where I looked at my stats after and played very well with little mistakes.:rolleyes:

Yea, I cant stand playing .05/.10 anymore. I get very impatient there and I hate getting AA, raising it to 8x the big blind and getting 4 callers. At bodog, the play at .05/.10 is especially bad, and if you find the right table, u can even find this play in the 50/100max range
