Brief poker update

I spent the night grinding it out at Party 15/30. I ended up about $365, although it was very much up and down. My prediliction for playing small pocket pairs from any position almost got me in big trouble on this hand:

Party Poker
Limit holdem Ring game
Limit: $15/$30
8 players
Converter

Pre-flop: (8 players) Hero is UTG with 4â?  4â?£
Hero calls, 5 folds, SB raises, BB calls, Hero calls.

Flop: 4â?¦ 9â?£ Qâ?  (6SB, 3 players)
SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets, SB calls, BB calls.

Turn: 5â?  (4.5BB, 3 players)
SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets, SB raises, BB folds, Hero 3-bets, SB Caps, Hero calls.

River: 4â?¥ (12.5BB, 2 players)
SB bets, Hero raises, SB calls.

Results:
Final pot: 16.5BB
Hero shows 4s 4c
SB doesn’t show Qd Qh

The SB wasn’t that amused to have top set snapped off in such a fashion. If our positions were reversed, I’d have lost more than he did.

I’m feeling like I have no problems winning at 15/30, but I have so much cash tied up in sports betting that I don’t want to play too much higher and get short.

I had to cut the session short because there was finally a new Lost episode to watch.

I'm a hard-core limit ring game poker player who is becoming a degenerate sports bettor. I'm sure it will all make more sense if you read on.
