Tonight I was watting for hooli to get me one account for me because I wanted to play my 1st futepoker league.
well I didn´t get luck because the shit hit the fan in his newspapper and he couldn´t get me the account so I decided to play some cash poker.
i choosed one table after watching them for 10min or so and I enter with 200$ in a 2-4$ table aka nl 400.
i steal some blinds nothing special till
I was utg+1 and i recived Ad 9d
nothing special i think but still i decided to make a mini raise.
I took the advantage i had KK and made the same kind of raise one turn before but I caught no action there and decided to show my cowboys.
well everyone fold except the BB that called.
Guys this is a common mistake i see offen in cash games.
You can´t call unless you have a monster.
you only have 2 options either you raise or fold to see the strenght of your opponent.
well he called.
the flop doesn´t help me 7c 8s Ts but i had open end straight
he did what you need to do in this case he raised me
and i did what i need to do i re-raise him
and he fold
this hand its the typical " you dont need to be good you only need to have luck"
i was mp with 88
and i made a standart raise
i got one call from the player in the co
the player in the BB makes a re-raise. i thought he was protecting his BB i couldn´t call i either fold or re-raise. so i re-raise-him
the co fold
and the BB went all in
i knew i was in trouble but i was with 32$ left and i called
i hoped he had AKs but whe showed his Aces
the flop was a dream come true
T 8 2
nothing help him and i was with more than 450$ 5 min after i started to play
well i deserved to be with 0 but like i said before i prefer to have luck than to be a good player.
i got the ladies utg and i made the standart raise to 14$ and i got got call from the player in the BB
the flop was from hell Jd Kd Kx
but i hit my 1st barrel more than 2/3 of the pot
i decided to check to see if he got the K or if he was trying to get the flush
he checked and i got what i needed
he was trying to get the dimond
the river doesn´t help him or me and he hit a 2/3 of the pot
nice bet imo because if i doesn´t had QQ i could fold
i didn´t re-raise because i could had a bad read on him so i just call his 90$ bet
well i was right and i won other big pot
now i was with 550$ or so in 10 min ( +350$ )
with A2 hearts in MP i decided to make a mini raise
i knew where i stand with this hand
flush flush or 22 in the flop would be great i didn´t wanted any ace
other 2 players called
the flop was a dream come true
Qh 3h Js
the short stack of the table made a pot bet
the BB called and i went all in
the short stack called and the BB folded
he shows Qs 6s
and i had Ah 2h
the turn give me the As putting me in front but giving him the flush draw too
well the river was one heart and i win other nice pot
now i was with 660$ ( + 460$ ) and i was HOT
my last hand
i limped with TKoff
and i was with other 2 guys
the flop was great
7s 9d Th
the short stack made a small raise
the BB called
the short made other small raise
and the BB called
i thought re-raising but i was with no read whatsoever about the player in the BB
he had hit a set 2 hands before and made the same kind of moviment so i decided to call only
the river was 3s
well i checked
the short moved all in ( and i knew i was in front of him so i had no affraid of him because i was 100% sure he was bluffing because i put him straight draw since the beggining)
the BB fold and i called
i was right i won other big pot
i was with 830$ ( + 630$ )
i waitted till my BB and i sit out
it was a nice hit and run and i thx to hooligato
if he had get me the pass i wouldn´t won this cash
well if i wasn´t luck in that 2 hand i would be with 0
but thats poker
