Private conversation with Cthweasel….

Ctheweasel: “That was quick … Lol. Getting too good a price to fold the 9’s. I know my aces weren’t good. I definitely should’ve folded that one. Good luck.”

Me: “Yikes! Ok. Thanks! Were you at my table? So much going on, I don’t even know.”

Ctheweasel: “Yes. Aces cracked by 3d 4d.”

Me: “Who called that? I must have been writing notes.”

Ctheweasel: “CalebDurio. He flopped straight draw flush draw. He led out I called. Turn put 3 diamonds. Obviously I had ace of diamonds. I called turn pot was $175. River blank. He had $80 left. I had to call $80 to win $335… should’ve folded.”

Me: “Tough to let that go. Sorry man. I’ll get you in this chapter somehow.”

Ctheweasel: “By the way the flop was 5c 5d 7d Turn Jd River Ks.”

Ac Th UTG.

Raise to $8. There is a reason for this amount. ATo OOP isn’t good. And if I run into a monster or a psycho, it’s a small loss. At the same time, I’m adding value to the pot if neither of those things happen because just calls likely means I’m ahead.

What did I learn from this session? Turn Messenger off! This isn’t an excuse for the poker results. It just makes for an unenjoyable experience. I have always set up my life to be happy. I must make an adjustment for next week.

Btw, I played last night and got it all-in pre with KK vs. AQ. We ran it three times. I lost all three: A on river, A on river, two Queens on the flop. I’m a 71% favorite there running it once.

I obviously haven’t been running good lately, but look at the big picture. Most poker players in my position would be way broke by now. Since I never re-buy, I’m still comfortably on the plus side. But I do need to stop the bleeding. I’ll have an update for you at the beginning of the next Online Poker with Friends session.
