Results ahoy

So after a weekend of nice holidaying at San Antonio and spending a wonderful day at Seaworld its back to work :((. bit of an update on the vacation first.

Seaworld definitely has some of the best shows with sea creatures in the country. While they do not have a fish tank as good as those in say Baltimore or Monterey Bay, but by jove they have some super shows. Initially I was a bit disappointed when I saw Seaworld's Shark tank (compared to Monterey it was like my aquarium back home in India where if you strain and squint really hard you might find those two red fishes swimming by), but then the shows really blew my mind. Highly recommended for anyone who gets down to this part of the country.

As for the poker goes, not much to report really. What with the India-Aussie test match and watching India grind and huff and puff like a 18th century steam engine I must say my stomach for poker is not that great this week, though I do plan on putting on a decent session late tonight and over the weekend. On a cricket side note I am praying that India put on a stellar performance with the bat the second time, even though losing is inevitable.

Some results:

12/21/07: 50 NL (Cake)
Profit : $120
Hours played: ~2

12/25/07: Christmas shit on fulltilt where I tilted like hell and dropped 3 buyins
Profit: -$150
Hours played: Marathon session wherein I refused to quit, at one point I was up atleast a couple of buyins but proceeded to take a shot at 400NL (why for fuck's sake???) and was well decimated, to put it really politely.

12/27/07: 50NL (Cake and Pstars)
Profit: $57
Hours played: 1

Weekly results: 12/17/07-12/24/07
Profit: $50
Played: Minimal in a long time of only about 4 hours of total play.

Have a good time at the tables. Oh and when I get home I'll post an interesting (lucky?) hand from yesterday's session.
PS: My day job is really boring me :((


Heres a hand from last night. The UTG had earlier be out with mid and bottom pair on the flop (after limping J5s !!) and so I figured my flush and my Q are alive. Hence the flop call and of course the golden turn.

Numbers game

The past two days I really havent got much time (i.e. undistracted time) to play, the house being full. I managed to squeak in a decent session yesterday on fulltilt starting off playing 1/2 limit and a combination of being card-dead/getting rivererd tilted me off so that I ended up dropping $80 in an hour and a half.
Limit playing is tricky than it otherwise seems, and its giving me more headache on tilt than elsewhere.

So i decided to put in an after dinner session on 50NL and 100 NL. Played really well and within an hour I had recovered my earlier loss to be back to even for the day. Infact would have made a small profit as well except that a player to my left made a spite call with A7-o after I had reraised him for the nth time with T-T and proceeded to spike his three outer on the flop door. But the board was super scary (A-9-K-K-J) and I lost the minimum. It seems that late night is a good time to play cash games as the players that are on are either tiring out or most of the regulars have gone. This is good thing to look into further. I'll be off for the weekend taking my paremts to San Antonio. So enjoy your vacation and god speed.

Christmas Apple

Updated shopping list:

Mommy: i-pod+i-pod dock+speakers ---> check
Daddy: digicam ---> check
Sister: digicam --> check
Girlfriend: i-phone --> check
SELF: open to suggestions

Im really not getting enough time to play, so at the most I am putting in 1 hour sessions almost mostly on limit cash games. These are going rally profitable at the moment. I am also dabbling in no-limit short stack buy-in play and those seem to work as well.

12/16/07: 1/2 limit (fulltilt)
profit : $30 (20 mins)

12/17/07 : 1/2 limit (cake and fulltilt)
profit: $30 (2 hours, i got stuck in the fulltilt game where twice my top sets got rivered by 4 flushes).

I am trying to build my roll upto the 2-3k range on all the three sites I play, hopefully by the end of Feb (that would also be when I'll get more time to play). This time around I am hoping not to bust my roll by taking unrealistic shots and playing hugely outside my roll. (eg, sunday million, FT main event on 2k rolls).
