Current total: $290.70
Took a decent step backwards last night losing 3 buy ins. I played tired, and played pretty crappy poker really. I had 3 main hands where I had the 2nd best and and was willing to go to the mat with. I remember 2 of them very well.
First one: A5 on BB.
Limps to me and I check. Flop comes AK5r, and I lead for pot. I get one caller. Turn is J, and I lead for pot, get raised, and ship. Dude calls and has Q10 for broadway. I brick on the river and that is one buy in.
I call a raise and see a flop of J 10 8. Mid pair and a gutter. I lead out hoping to just take down the pot, but get called. Turn is a 9 giving me a straight, and we get it all in on the turn. Villain has KQ for the nut and I am dead to a chop that misses.
Taking a hit like this sucks, but it's not that bad at all given the BR management that I use. I could have stayed longer as I have done in the past, and tried to get it back. But the difference this time is that I knew I was not playing my A-game, so I stopped. I have been hovering around the 320.00 mark for a while now, and I am planning on playing tonight when I am more well rested, and grinding back up.
I haven't decided exactly what to do when I get to 400.00. That is big enough to play .10-.20 at max buy in, but I am wondering if I should stay around .05-.10 for a little while longer as I don't feel like I have been here long enough to be comfortable. Hell, it might take me 3 months to get from 290.00 to 400.00 anyhow..
