Lots of hands today, lighting money on fire.
I have no one to blame for today’s debacle but PokerElmo. I was sailing along at $400 NL, crushing it to death for 16 ptbb/100. He pops up in the comments and says “not sustainable” and “5 ptbb/100 is probably more realistic.” As today drew to a close, my $400 NL earn rate is now 4.87 ptbb/100. I need dumber friends.
I dropped four buy-ins in an astonishingly short period of time. Sadly, only one was a bad beat. I lost two flips, once with AK and the other time with QQ. No Ace when I need it and two of them when he needed one. C’est la vie. The fourth one was a poker embarrassment. Remember the rule that the fourth raise pre-flop is always Aces? I didn’t and got stacked with JJ when I somehow wishful thinkinged myself into a braindead call. Such a fish play. I was disgusted and went back to limit. I actually recovered all the $1,200 I was down at one point on the limit tables and then eventually gave most all of it back. It was a miserable day results-wise where I ended up down over $1,000 again.
However, I am quite sure I played pretty well. Big pairs went down in flames over and over and sets lost to runner-runner crap, so I’m not troubled about that. I did win a satellite into the big weekly VIP freeroll and I played a lot of hands. My VPP count is now 4,800, so almost halfway to the monthly goal.
