Live games..

Although ive been posting about my internet wins/losses, ive played quite abit of live poker recently also, in which ive played 10 times better.

First game was in rileys, 9 peeps on table, £10 buy in, first prize £60, second £30, i played very well throughout this game, the skill level was good, although not great, i managed to knock a large majority of the table out through a few good reads. It was a good spirited table and very enjoyable to play at.

It ended up me and this other guy heads up, and i was chip lead by a very long way, he was pushing with any good hands, and i didnt want to double him up, although him stealing the blinds was counting for alot also, he pushed when i was dealt 102h and i called him , he turned over A6, and i hit the flush...nice little profit.

Next game..
Played vs Bluescouse, moz, portdeco, jake and TJ (blue's brother)
It was a £5 rebuy and 1st was £60, 2nd £30. I think i played quite well, even though i will admit i hit a few lucky hands, but thats poker =) Cant realy remember too many hands, but the one i remember mainly is vs moz, we both were in the flop when it came j6x, i held j6, moz held j10, and thats where he went out =) soz mate lol..
Another was vs Bluescouse where he went all in pre flop with the short stack , it folded to me, and wasnt too much to call so i did with K2h, Blue turned over K4d, there were no 4's coming out as the other 3 were in folded hands lol, and i lucked a 2 =)

And the final hand is when i was heads up vs jake with me having chip lead, i hold Ah10s, jake j4, flop comes 10h jh kc, i raise, then get re-raised, i call, the turn is 6h, i check, jakes moves all in, after thinking for a long time, i thought i had to call, i have quite a few outs, any 10, any ace, any heart or queen, i call, and the river is the 3 of hearts (which portdeco called lol)...and i win £60..all good =)

Final small game tonight vs Murph heads-up, i gained chip lead quite early, but then hitting a big knock shortly after. I must admit, i was getting some good hands and hitting often. The final hand was wen i recieved k5. Murph raised 2x BB pre. Flop was 459, i raise then get re-raised all in by murph, I put him on something like AQ/AK, and say to him this, i thought for ages and ages about this, and then called as it was not alot more for me to do so, he turns over AQ (what a call lol), turn A, dear god :S and then i lucked a K on the river, £10 profit =)

So although ive bin losing online recently, live poker has done me good and i think ill be playing it alot more in future. Thats all for now =)


oh and i forgot to mention when i busted portdeco's AA. I held JQd, and he raised to something like 3x bb, i call, and there is an A showing on the table, i cant remember the other cards, all i know is that i hit the flush on the river (sick, soz mate)
