A good night for poker
I checked my ego at the door and played quite attentive poker last night. Outlasting 2000 other donkeys, I finished an ok-but-not-stellar 182/2232 in the $5 5k GTD on stars when I ran AQ into AK. 4 hours of effort, $7 profit, gg ! I also took 17th in a $4 180 where I had a decent stack but ran QQ into a bigger stacks AQo, A on the flop and IGHN. Whilst I made no great money I was really pleased with the level of concentration I had and didn't make any enormous errors. I made notes, and used them to my advantage, I smiled at stupid plays and called no-one an idiot except myself when I folded on a read that my heart said call (which would have been correct)
It's a good start, but a one night stand doesn't make a relationship so I'll be aiming for some consistency with a repeat performance tonight.
