it's going somewhere..

why do i need to lose a lose 4-5BIs to really start playing poker? uh..probably this hand tilted me in the beginning:

MP2: $2.25

BTN: $7.84
Hero (SB): $4.99
BB: $4.17
UTG: $9.95
UTG+1: $3.10
MP1: $2.18

Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is SB with TT of clubs AA of clubs
UTG calls $0.05, UTG+1 calls $0.05, 4 folds, Hero raises to $0.15, 2 folds, UTG+1 calls $0.10

Flop: ($0.40) 55 of hearts TT of diamonds 33 of diamonds (2 players)
Hero bets $0.40, UTG+1 calls $0.40

Turn: ($1.20) 88 of hearts (2 players)
Hero bets $0.60, UTG+1 raises to $2.55 all in, Hero calls $1.95

River: ($6.30) 66 of diamonds (2 players - 1 is all in)

Final Pot: $6.30
Hero shows TT of clubs AA of clubs (a pair of Tens)
UTG+1 shows 55 of spades 66 of spades (two pair, Sixes and Fives) <-- wat? semibluf?
UTG+1 wins $6.00

  2. that came out wrong after i read it back. What i was trying to say was. I think about poker a lot when i am at work. I get home thinking that I have this level beaten and then go in a bit cocky. This loses me a bit of money and I tighten up or turn down the aggression a bit. then spend the rest of the session playing catch up or worse still having a tilt
