In my last post I was bragging about what a fine player I was becoming. I thought that I had turned a corner, that I knew how to avoid quick defeats, that I was finally able to consistently win at the $.1/.1 no-limit tables. Well, tonight I had a rude awakening at Hold’em Poker.
I had about $50 in my account at about 5pm, and at 10:43pm I had nothing. All gone. I don’t think I played particularly badly. I remember losing about $8 when my king high flush lost to an ace high flush. I kind of knew that I was beat, but I couldn’t lay down, because I was sort of playing out of desperation, after losing about $30 in the previous couple of hours. When I was down to my last $10, I decided to go to a $.25/.25 no-limit room.
I thought if I was lucky, whatever that means, I might be able to recoup some of my losses more quickly. Well, I was right about one thing. You can win a lot more quickly when the blinds are $.15 more. Unfortunately, the “you” wasn’t me. Oh well… I did enjoy playing at Hold’em and in the end I was up $50, which I had cashed out a few days ago. So it wasn’t a total failure. I may even deposit money again into Hold’em if I continue to win in my old standby, JonWoodGaming. But enough poker for tonight. I’ve got to go wash some dishes.
