Happy Birthday Ella!

My Daughter turns 5 today. Wow! Time has really flown by. It's hard to believe that she will be starting kindergarten in the fall.

Happy Birthday Ella!


I've made somewhat of a comeback the last couple days. I had a new "Best Day Ever" on Friday night where I won $1300 in just 650 hands. I didn't play much the rest of the weekend, and since Friday, I'm probably running just above average. My monthly graph is pretty gross looking. I was down over $2500 at one point, but now I am right back around even. With rakeback and some positive gains in tournaments, I'm probably right at $0 for the month. Ugg.

Last night's session (not on this graph) was brutal. I only played about 300 hands, but my won when saw flop percentage was 19%. It's usually around 42-43 %. I wasn't hitting nothing, and I was getting raised after the flop constantly.

I did play a few tournaments on Monday night. I played in the Hoy and was the first out when I 4-bet with AK and got it in versus KK and lost (That is my 5th AK vs KK hand this month, losing all 5). I busted in the PokerStars 50/50 when my KK ran into AA. I lost in FullTilt's 26k guarenteed when I raised with T9s, got min-raised by the donk behind me (duh, Aces). I called and flopped two pair. We got it all-in on the flop and his Aces went runner runner straight to beat me (board was 9TKQJ). And then I was doing really well in the FullTilt 50/50 with a top 10-20 stack most of the tournament. Then about 100 from the money I lost it all versus the donkey chip leader when I flopped top two pair and he called me down with a gutshot and hit on the river. I looked up this guys stats at, and the past two years, he is down over $70,000 playing tournaments at FullTilt. Standard for me in the realm of tournaments. Either a massive cooler or a massive suckout.

Here is Today's Sweet Hand of the Day

The only real hand I was worried about was 22. I contemplated 3-betting the flop and getting it in there, but there were only straight draws out there, so I just called. I'm really surprised that he had 98s.
