Small session started with ....

Played maybe 15 minutes for a bit of $2/4 on interpoker, some 1/2 on bodog, and a few hands of 25c/50c on ultimate bet because they gave me $10 for free which expires next monday. I dont think i'll bother to spin it up to anything as I dont have rakeback on UB, but i'll get it to the required $20 or so that allows me to withdraw it.

My very first hand on Interpoker for the session:

$2/$4 Limit Holdem • 6 Players
UTG $82.24
UTG+1 $140.25
CO $109.25
BTN $53.00
SB $63.06
Hero $100.00
Pre-Flop (1.5 SB, 6 players) Hero is BB with Ts9h

UTG raises, 1 fold, CO calls, 2 folds, Hero calls (the cold caller makes this a call for me)
Flop (6.5 SB, 3 players)

Td6c9s (fairly sure i'm well in front here, although there are straight draws)

Hero checks, UTG bets, CO calls, Hero raises, UTG calls, CO 3-bets, Hero 4-bets, UTG calls, CO calls (have to check raise here, and I also decided to cap the flop although I guess Co could have trips. Have to see what he does on the river)
Turn (7.2 BB, 3 players)

Kd (hmm not the best of cards. QJ has filled up an open ender, however, I still have outs to my boat if i'm behind)

Hero bets, UTG calls, CO calls (lets see where i'm at ... no reraise makes me think i'm in front still)
River (10.2 BB, 3 players)


Hero bets, UTG calls, CO calls (gotta value bet this river based on turn action)
Final Pot: 15.2 BB

UTG shows AdTh
CO shows Kh8h
Hero wins 14.5 BB ( won +10.5 BB )

So a fairly handy start to the session really. The rest of the session was pretty uneventful, and I managed to miss 5 draws for either open enders or flushes in a row. Well uneventful until my next best hand of the session:

Hand 2:

Pre-Flop (1.5 SB, 6 players) Hero is UTG+1 with 5h5d

1 fold, Hero raises, CO 3-bets, BTN 4-bets, 2 folds, Hero calls, CO calls (blah .. didnt really want the 4bet .. annoying at best but i gotta call here when its back to me for implied odds)
Flop (13.5 SB, 3 players)

Ad3s5c (awesome! only behind AA now, which surely puts me in front)

Hero checks, CO bets, BTN raises, Hero 3-bets, CO folds, BTN calls (gotta check raise that flop)
Turn (10.2 BB, 2 players)

Jd (hmm not bad ... although AJ now has 2 pair, and a potential flush draw is on the board)

Hero bets, BTN raises, Hero calls (gotta bet out. Not super happy with the reraise given i've only shown strength. Still .. i think i should have 3 bet here)
River (14.2 BB, 2 players)

Ah (i'm still kickin myself for not 3 betting the turn. I wonder if his reraise was for a free showdown. He is reasonably aggro...)

Hero bets, BTN calls (I decided to bet out to not give the free showdown. Might puke a bit if he reraised but i still would have called)
Final Pot: 16.2 BB
CO shows KdQd (hehe)

Hero wins 15.5 BB ( won +9.0 BB )

Finished my session soon after when a couple of the tables broke up. Ended up around 25BBs in total which is a reasonable recovery compared with the weekend's efforts.

Oh almost forgot to mention - looks like the Littlewoods through RTR transfer to 888 worked well, and that account is now set up for rakeback on the 888 network.

Current bankroll: $13,250

It's funny how we play all these hands and a few key ones make the difference between winning and losing.

I couldn't see the River on Hand 1, I am assuming that it was relatively blank.

The phenom is back!

ooops yep .. as blank as you could ever get :)

all fixed.

Hand 1 is one where I would probably check-call the river. Many villains who call the river bet here will also bet if you check to them, and I reckon a hit straight (or better two pair) may well call the turn planning to raise the river.

Hand 2 - wtf is he calling with KQ?!

Re: Littlewoods, have you received email confirmation from RTR? Is it tracking on the RTR website yet?

parttimebonuschaser said...

Yep got an email this morning from RTR.

They apparently dont have an automated tracking system yet so stats will need to be updated manually which hasn't been done yet.

The blindman said...

Blam. Looks like if you didn't sign up before June 23rd, you don't get it. Shame.
