Well I've managed to get a little bit of poker in lately but nothing really amazing to speak of.
I've been continuing my Sit & Go challenge and played 5 more $11 S&G's the other day. I took 4th, 3rd, 7th, 1st, and 5th. A lot of work for a whopping $8. Nothing much to say about them other than I played fairly well and almost always got my money in with the best of it and got sucked out on. The times I didnt have the best of it were because of opponents playing ridiculous hands and catching cards with them.
I also played in our home game last night. That didn't go very well. There was one player there who didn't have a clue and was playing and calling down with any two cards. I can't count the number of times he turned over a Q or J high after calling the river. And yet somehow he managed to pull cards out of his ass to win the big pots and always had a mountain of chips. I lost to him twice. Once when I made a great read of weakness and from the button made an oversized bet into a 4 way uncontested pot to try and take it down on the flop. Of coure Mr. Maniac called me with bottom pair to ruin the bluff. The other was when I moved in with KJ on a J high all club flop. Mr Maniac once again called and wasn't happy once he saw the cards. Of course he perked up when someone else pointed out that he had a club and I didn't so he at least had a draw. Yep, when he called he thought he had nothing at all but called anyway. Of course another club hit and I lost another big pot to him.
I really hate playing against maniacs when they are catching cards left and right...
I am now a married man. I know it's been a while since I posted but I really haven't had a chance to play poker let alone post about it. The wedding was great and the honeymoon was even better.
I'm hoping to be able to put in some good poker time soon but now my PC is acting up and I think I'm going to have to format it and rebuild. Hopefully I'll be back up and running soon.
