Winning, but not from tournaments.

Well, as title suggests, my last two visits have been profitable but not in the tournaments, wednesday I played and was going ok without having a rebuy, the few hands back after the break, I have 4575, blinds at 50/100, and when I have odd number of chips, for some reason, I always bet them (something mentally I dont like about it) so I make it 275 to play with Kd7d, button, SB and BB calls, flop comes Qd 7c 4d, checked to me, I bet 900, button goes all in for 3500, I call and he has AQ and no help for me. Then I chuck my last 700 in and called by AJ and Ace high wins lol. So, a stupid way to go out, but we had a good chance of getting to 9k and chip leader, so may not of been all that stupid if I hit. Ended up playing dealers choice cash game, cant really remember any hands apart from a hold'em hand (which JPJ wants me to mention, as he thinks I got lucky) There a usual raise to £3, JPJ and I call from the blinds (I have J2), flop comes J 5 2 all hearts, both check, raiser bets £10, both call, turn 2, JPJ checks, I bet £15, raiser calls, J folds, river 8h, I check, he bets £20, I raise £50 more but he passed showing KJ (no heart) Then Jason showed J5 and for some reason thinks I was lucky as if I was gonna whack the lot in if a complete brick falls on the turn (I sure wasnt trapping on the flop) =). In fact, I think he passes anyway if brick comes and theres action :). Anyway, ended up winning nearly £300 in the cash and got £140 from winner of tournament (20% share).

Thursday, ended up sleeping most of the day, but did get out and play pool for couple hours, before getting home and falling asleep during a MTT online.

Yesterday, Played a £50 with one rebuy or add-on allowed, within first hour I flopped 2 pair twice, first time lost to a turned 2 pair, and second time lost to a turned straight, that left me with 1200 which wene in on a J 10 9 2 board and some donkey had 22 =). So have my top-up and get moved tables, and struggling but when blinds go to 100/200, I pick up a few pots and then make it 600 to play with 4h 5h, both blinds calls, flop comes Ah 3h As, SB bets 1000, BB calls, I shove another 2400, SB passes (66) BB calls with Kh2h, oops :(. Turns a blank and river 5s :). I then win another hand with JJ against 99 and that puts me on about 10k which I stay at all the way to the final when I double with AK against KJ, flop come QJ2, but hit a 10 on the turn. Then another stupid play which I make, to go out 8th for £100. I'm in cutoff and everyone folds to me, I'm about to pass my Jd6d but theres an arguement between the blinds so I feel I can pick it up, make it 4600 (blinds 800/1600), button calls lol, flop comes 8d9c5d, I check he bets 6000, I move all in 12000 more and he calls with 7c8c and no help. Again my 20% share gets a 3 way deal so I pick up £100 from him and I ended up playing £5/£10/£20 Kalooki which was up and down all the way and then we were back even after 5 games so doubled the stakes for the last game and I ended up winning £80 there :).

No play tonight, golf match tomorrow night, but hopefully play Monday night the couple days off before week of Poker in Luton.

Good Luck all.

You never fold two pair, so if the turn bricks i get the lot......from both of you...cos Walshy aint folding top pair :) :) :)

Who was that donkey with 22, was he the one who stacked off against that donut with second pair?
