Buy in was like $10 I ran hot and cold all night. I did what I consider a sin when I decided to keep playing when I was ahead and ready to stop. But my reasoning was a personal issue (Family Health stuff)

Well I almost stopped playing 3 times. All when I was ahead. But this was my most painful and final hand of the night.

I am in the BB with Ah 2h

Not a great hand but hey it costs me nothing to play it.

Overall I have 2 callers the player after me and the one in the SB.

Flop:

9h Js 2c

No flush draw. 1st checks. I make min bet just to see. 3rd pos calls 1st pos folds

Turn:

Ac

2 pair? Sweet! I bet 2/3rds the pot . He Calls.

River:

Ad

Wow I just hit the boat! I bet the same as last time. He raises.

I'm thinking he must have hit trip aces. Because only an AJ or A9 beats me and thats almost impossible percent-wise.

I raise. He goes all in.

He slow play pocket jacks? Those aren't good here.

I call.

He turns over As Jd

And good night!

I know it might be possible to fold that hand. But I couldn't.

Lol I know your pain.

Last few days was the biggest "swing" ive ever had!

Started the day with my base $80.... over time I dropped to $15... played a $12 tourney giving me a $3 bankroll.


Yes, I won, then won a few more, and shot up to $180... then I lost again... back to $40.. then today I decided to play strong... won a few crucial tourneys.

My current BR is up to $245 :) :)

So in summary $80->$15->$3->$180->$40->$245

gotta love poker eh?
