Played 1/2 shorthanded, was playing solid and taking down small pots, building my stack. The table i was at then turned insane - all shortstacks, they started open raising all-in with garbage, so i decided to wait until i got a monster and catch one of them making a donk play. This must have been the most potentially profitable table i've ever been at.
Finally i got AQ, raised UTG and got BB to call - flop came AJX, he checked and i bet my usual 1/2 pot, which was half his stack. He reraised all in - a play i would usually never call, but these guys were absolute monkeys. I called and turn and river came K, K. He turns over QT...
okay fine, a bad beat - I topped off my stack and kept playing.
Other table, I get JJ - i hadn't had a hand in ages - and UTG raised. Two called behind him and i reraised. UTG and 1 MP player call.
Flop came KQJ rainbow; they check, i bet half pot, both call. I put UTG on AK, and MP on who knows what. Neither have QQ, AA or KK because they would have pushed PF, so i know that UTG is AK, and MP is probably drawing.
Turn comes blank, but gives a flush draw and i push my remaining 100 and change. See pic for results
Anyways i played fine, and the only reason i'm not down $500 today is because my JJs and QQs actually held up. I made them count when i had to. I had a couple big pots with them, and another where i hit my 99 set, but got no post-flop action.
two big badbeats were just about my only negative profit hands...and boy did they hurt.
Ive decided either to once again drop limits, or stick to either MTTs or SnGs.
I think i might try a 100 or 500 SnG challenge for myself.
