Weekend post

Probably not going to get time to post tomorrow, so figured i'd throw in a quick update from the weekend.

Got in about 3 hours which began terribly dropping around 30BBs at $3/6 in the first hour, before gradually clawing it back over the next two to finish all square. Probably made a bit out of rakeback, and earned $30 in bonuses, so am actually a little up for the sessions and happy to recover from such a terrible start.

The first hour was horrible with some smart arse playing like a complete muppet, but managing to hit hands like 73o calling raises amongst others. I ended up leaving the table when he left as he was the biggest fish by far on the table. Fish do win sometimes, so i'll keep a lookout for them next time to grab it all back.

Anyways a few hands:

** Wait [Hold 'em] (3.006.00 Fixed - $ Cash Game) Real Money

- Bren17 sitting in seat 1 with $47.40
- _ScarfACE_ sitting in seat 2 with $162.52 [Dealer]
- Dancat44 sitting in seat 3 with $89.51
- hero sitting in seat 4 with $147.00
- alby1 sitting in seat 5 with $126.01
- Dinov111 sitting in seat 6 with $342.40

Dancat44 posted the small blind - $1.50
hero posted the big blind - $3.00
** Dealing card to hero: 3 of s, 3 of h (not bad at all. will call a raise in the bb if necessary)
alby1 called - $3.00 (limpers nice for implied odds)
Dinov111 folded
Bren17 called - $3.00 (awesome another limper)
_ScarfACE_ raised - $6.00 (hmm ... well i'll definitely call here with the pot already growing)
Dancat44 called - $6.00 (awesome. i'm almost going to have odds to call a raise on the flop to chase down a 3 on the turn at this rate)
hero called - $6.00 (hopefully no reraise. that would be annoying)
alby1 called - $6.00
Bren17 called - $6.00

** Dealing the flop: 10 of c, 3 of c, 2 of h (kaching. 2 clubs are a little annoying though)
Dancat44 bet - $3.00
hero called - $3.00 (lets try to get an overcall or 3)
alby1 called - $3.00 (awesome)
Bren17 folded (damn)
_ScarfACE_ folded (damn)

** Dealing the turn: 5 of d
Dancat44 bet - $6.00
hero raised - $12.00 (time to get some value, and to make the flush draws pay. dont want to risk alby folding and not getting any more value out of Dancat)
alby1 folded (call woulda been better but oh well)
Dancat44 called - $12.00 (ty)

** Dealing the river: 2 of s (gives me the full house. nice)
Dancat44 checked
hero bet - $6.00
Dancat44 folded (jeez not even a call. maybe he was on the flush draw)
hero mucks:
hero wins $66.00 from the main pot

Continuation betting for beginners .... might write about this later on I think

** Wait [Hold 'em] (3.00/6.00 Fixed - $ Cash Game) Real Money

- Dancat44 sitting in seat 3 with $0.00 [Dealer] [Sitting out]
- hero sitting in seat 4 with $190.23
- Dinov111 sitting in seat 6 with $349.60

hero posted the small blind - $1.50 (table is now too short. will quit as soon as BB gets back to me)
Dinov111 posted the big blind - $3.00
** Dealing card to hero: 5 of s, 6 of s
_ScarfACE_ folded
hero raised - $6.00 (worth a steal from the sb)
Dinov111 called - $6.00

** Dealing the flop: K of h, K of c, J of c (whiffed)
hero bet - $3.00 (may as well try to steal the pot with only one opponent and I raised preflop)
Dinov111 folded (thanks)
hero mucks:
hero wins $14.40 from the main pot

Its also exactly a year since my first deposit on Full Tilt. I think though i'll do a proper review at December rather than July. I think though its been a pretty decent year so far. Hopefully the next is just as good.

Current Bankroll: $10,750 (+360 Aug)

Congratulations. If I can even get one quarter of what you have in my first year I would consider it a roaring success.
Keep up the good work. Adam
