Shooting ... and missing ...

Took another shot at Bodog $4/8 and got burnt … again.

Found a couple good tables, although didn’t necessarily best position on the fish. Offsetting that was that the players to my right though were still passive and slightly loose, so I didn't think i'd actually get pushed off too many blinds, which turned out to be the correct assumption.

However, the fishes decided it was time to slaughter me.

Atshizzle – 71/11/.84/54 with W$SD 47 … with most of those wins against me …
YA221 – 78/29/1.24/45 with W$SD 45 ..mostly against me
Tungpeter – 51/27/.84/43 with a W$SD 43 .. again mostly against me …

A frustrating procession of me v fish resulting in suck out, followed by fish v someone else losing my money to them. Annoying, but I still didn't tilt at all that I could see - in fact I don't think I loosened up at all in trying to chase losses, or overplay any marginal hands that flopped poorly.

My stats for the session:

VPIP 24% .. I was a bit down on receiving decent starting hands
PFR 16% … as above
AF 1.43 … down on usual .. maybe I was a little passive .. but more likely I was having to check/call a few marginal hands
WTSD 33% … low … I couldn’t hit a flop to save myself
W$SD 42% …unbelievable that I can go that badly with such a low WTSD. But I guess the suck outs hurt a lot.

The thing is … at the $1/2 tables at the same time I also managed to drop 75BBs in about 2.5 hours running even colder .. about a 20% WTSD and a 30% W$SD over 600 hands. Only played about an hour and a half of $4/8 and at one stage was 50BBs down before finishing at 20BBs down. Boy was it ugly for a while. Couldn’t hit a draw to save myself.

Anyways .. a few hands from the session: (sorry about the lack of converter .. I’m getting errors on weaktight for bodog at the moment).

HERO: calls $16.00 hmmm ... i wonder if i'm up against trips. if i'm up against another spade draw that does reduce my outs significantly. I really dont want to see the board pair on the river, but need that final spade. Not sure, maybe this should be a raise since the pot is already huge.
atshizzle: calls $8.00
--- DEALING RIVER [Ks] well .. that's hit my flush .. but also paired the board .. could be ugly

1rockstar: calls $8.00
HERO: calls $8.00
atshizzle: shows [Kh Qd] heh .. you owe me a lot more than just that one
1rockstar: shows [Ts 5s] doofus preflop, but unlucky flush over flush.
HERO: shows [As 9s]
HERO: wins main pot($281.00) biggest pot ever for me I think .. but i'm still way down for the session

So .. all in all a pretty horrible session, but at least recovered late with that hand. So coulda been a lot worse. Looks like I’ll be back to the $1/2 tables on bodog for a while. And that could be quite a while as I’m still running very cold there in total at a 36% WTSD and now I’m actually under 47% W$SD…. And that’s over 8.5k hands…

I also played a stack of $5 double up sitngos on interpoker as there were literally no cash games running when I was playing. I think I cashed in about 6 out of 8 of them and they are quite fun. It looks like most people dont really know how to play them. As soon as my bankroll hits $500 on there I might take a swing at the $15 double ups. I'm assuming the play there is also fairly terrible.

Current bankroll: $13,800

Nice pot at the end there - gratifying after all the suckouts.

I don't know if I'd call a naked FD on the flop "awesome". I call those flops "potentially very costly". I much prefer top pair + FD :)

parttimebonuschaser said...

hehe true .. i was more thinking from a 5 ways perspective i've got my nut flush draw and i was going to have an EV+ bet/raise/call on both the flop and turn to chase it if enough opponents come along for the ride.

if it missed i'd have had to add it to my pile of other misses for the session, which was starting to be a pretty big pile

Ouch, ouch and double ouch!

Every cloud has a silver lining ... you're tilt-proof.
