Instant Satisfaction

I came to the conclusion that tournaments were like long term relationships that included an arduous courting process where you put in hours and hours into foreplay without getting laid. Whereas cash games are like those ladies you pick up at the Hooker Bar in Las Vegas. Pauly

Just a quickie, here's the highlight of last night's visit to the poker red light district, during my 53 hand stay I made $130 in less than hour, which I think is a record return/hour for me at the $.25/.50 tables. 4 hands after this one I went to sleep, glowing :o)

Any comments about playing this better/differently are welcome of course. Meanwhile in the real world I am still writing forms and submitting cheques and applications for things related to the new flat, which is now due for completion on the 5th April. We're also thinking of selling the boat too, about which I am totally gutted, it's a tough decision to make but an essential one at the moment. Don't forget to sign up for the brit-based blogger tourney on Sunday and tell yer friends !

your small bet at the flop was dangerous with all the drawing hands out there. If the other players had limped and another str8 or flush card fell, then your kings were probably dead! Anyway all turned out well!! NH and Nice Pot!

Gl with the flat.

Thanks for reply, I made the smaller bet to try and gain some information. If I check it's quite likely that everyone will check and I won't know where I'm at + risk a free card. If I make a large bet I think it's pretty obv it's unlikely I have the nut flush to the other two guys.

If they had both called and another scare card fell I was ready to slow right down and drop the hand if necessary, as it is when ruffian reraised I was 95% sure I was ahead, if was a making a clever play with a flush then fair play to him but it was unlikely enough that I thought a push there was the best option.
