200k Day

I had one of my best ever sessions yesterday winning around $200k.... mostly playing 200/400 HA on Full Tilt. Highstakes database has me as a $90k loser in 2009 on Full Tilt, when i fact i'm up close to $400k... guess they don't track most of my sessions, and they missed yesterdays one too.

Its cool to book a big win before Vegas as well.... i kind of wish i'd gone out to play the $40k NL, but 3 weeks in Vegas is long enough, hopefully i can run good in one of the PLO events.

A few hands...

Get it in good in $100k pot

Set over set in another $100k pot

Catching a bluff

Not really sure about this one but i get away with it

On hand 3 (bluff catcher), what is the reasoning behind flat calling the flop?

I guess it's all about pot control. There are a lot of turn cards which will complete flush/str8 draws. AQT5 could be easily dominated on the turn than. Ben is almost drawing dead when a scary card hits the turn and he has no blockers.

Hand number 4.

Was there really any need to bet the river? Turn a two pair into a bluff. Just check behind and hope your good?

Opponent most likely has not got a straight here, but might call with weakish two pair that beat you.

On hand three i was just looking for a safe card and hoped he fired another bullet that i could raise!

Hand 4 is weird. I guess i'm representing AJxx or even the straight. By betting the river he may fold hands that have me beat like A9xx, A2xx, A7xx. He raises all in on the turn with a set or AJ i think, and i don't think he'd check 8Txx on the river. I think i bet too much whatever the outcome....

Well done! Sometimes you lose when you play it right and have the best hand. So nothing wrong when winning when maybe you shouldn't have been in there. Good job.
