last day of spring

the longest session this week. at some point i thought i forgot how to play poker. it turned out i was running below EV..but it's not uncommon to me recently. here's the hand that saved my karma:

$0.1/$0.25 No Limit Holdem
9 players

UTG tompan26 ($7.46)
UTG+1 HarryCds ($6.78)
MP1 ZRFC2010 ($12.18)
MP2 Hero ($27.56)
MP3 AgedinOak ($24.64)
CO rootAV ($35.25)
BTN h-hell-o ($9.90)
SB PSigrok ($5.00)
BB edem11 ($5.53)

Pre-flop: ($0.35, 9 players) Hero is MP2

3 folds, Hero raises to $1, AgedinOak calls $1, 4 folds

Flop: ($2.35, 2 players)
Hero bets $2, AgedinOak raises to $4, Hero goes all-in $26.56, AgedinOak goes all-in $19.64

Turn: ($52.55, 2 players)

River: ($52.55, 2 players)

Final Pot: $49.63
Hero shows:
AgedinOak shows:

Hero wins $50.07 ( won +$22.51 ) <- fu rake
AgedinOak lost -$24.64

if you run below EV you should go all-in with worse hands and occasionaly you'll win. if you go all-in only with the best hands, badbeats will screw your "all-in EV" line :) rigged obv
in the end i've had some fishy tables but probably i was too tired as i had absolutely no thoughts in my head so I've decided to call it a day.

amount won: $31.61
rake paid: $72.77


  1. It just dawned on me you're playing FR! How long has it been like that? Also, why?

  2. lol i've always been playing FR. FR is probably a little harder (more players=more things to consider, shortstackers are more annoying etc) but FR is better for mass-tabling, most donkaments are FR and i play with more people so chances of finding someone in spewing mode are greater :)
