Frustrating fish...

Got in a good hour last night, although there weren't good enough tables running for me to have 3 or 4 open at a time.

Was quite an irritating session, as I was often in front, only to get rivered by a gutshot or some other random 3,4 or 5 outer that was chased from the flop. Of course the two times I had an open ended straight draw/flushdraw giving me around 15 outs completely missed, and the one time muppet bets into me when I raised preflop with TT he hits his runner runner straight with JTo. For some reason my big pairs were delivering me pain .. even when one of my pair cards matched one of my opponents cards. Lost around $150 although a lot of that ended up being on a $4/8 table, where I endured a couple nasty suckots and ended up down around 15BBs there alone.

I did sign up to Bodog though through rakebackstat - refer my link on the right. And i've already cleared $50 in bonus cash there. And boy were the tables there fishy. Most flops were being seen by 3 or 4 players, and often dominated hands were being played by my opponents. Unfortunately for me, they were hitting their second pair quite often. Like Q2o calling my preflop raise with KK, only to hit the 2 on the flop and a Q on the turn .... and the runner runner straight I mentioned earlier. Pretty sure i'll play a fair bit on there, at least whilst i'm bonus clearing. It seems to work quite well - you have 30 days to clear as much bonus as you can, and at the end of the 30 days they pay you what you have cleared. You dont need to clear the whole amount even.

I guess my night can be summed up in the following hands:

Hero bet - $2.00
