Two ladies - different results

I got to play for about 2.5 hours last night, so actually got in a few hands. Only issue was that the tables available were generally pretty horrible, and so I only really had two tables running at a time at best, and these were split between Bodog, Interpoker, Sun and Fulltilt throughout the session.

My start was horrendous, and I found myself down 40BBs on a $2/4 table on Sun. The player to my right was one of those 60/20/2/50 guys who plays too many hands, plays them too aggressively and shows down way too often. Unfortunately for me, he would also limp in and then call my cbets, and his turned pair of 4s when holding 74o was enough to win a few showdowns when I whiffed. He also hit a number of gutshots and three outers, and was quickly about 40BBs up - mostly at my expense.

Bodog was also a little nasty, but only on a $1/2 table. Here's the first hand of my Ladies: (sorry for the lack of converter, but bodog is still not converting nicely)

Hand 1:

Hold'em Limit ($1.00/$2.00)
Seat 1: el fuego24 ($8.23)
Seat 2: gamberini ($213.51)
Seat 3: Rawdog22 ($61.39)
Seat 4: scottdo9 ($30.09)
Seat 5: hero ($126.85)
Rawdog22: posts the small blind $0.50
scottdo9: posts the big blind $1.00
hero is dealt [Qc,Qs] (sweet)
hero: raises $1.00 to $2.00
el fuego24: raises $1.00 to $3.00 (this guy is about 60/15/2 .. so an aggro fish)
gamberini: folds
Rawdog22: folds
scottdo9: calls $2.00 (60/5 type fish - he could have anything here)
hero: raises $1.00 to $4.00
el fuego24: calls $1.00
scottdo9: calls $1.00
--- DEALING FLOP [5s,4d,Tc]
scottdo9: checks
hero: bets $1.00
el fuego24: raises $1.00 to $2.00 (hmm ... that's not a real good sign even though its only the flop)
scottdo9: calls $2.00
hero: calls $1.00 (i debated 3 betting here, but thought i might wait for a turn c/r on a safe card instead)
--- DEALING TURN [Ks] (arr crap ... still he is a fish so i'm calling down)
scottdo9: checks
hero: checks
el fuego24: bets $2.00
scottdo9: calls $2.00
hero: calls $2.00
scottdo9: checks
hero: checks
el fuego24: goes all in $0.23
scottdo9: calls $0.23
hero: bets $2.00 (i'm sure i've got that scottfish covered so may as well make him pay to see the showdown)
scottdo9: folds
$1.77 is not called, return back to hero:
el fuego24: shows [Jh Js] (u gotta be kiddin me .. he's rivered trips)
hero: shows [Qc Qs]
el fuego24: wins main pot($24.19)

Anyways, that was basically the story of the first half of my session. The second half, however was a different story, and can probably be summed with my second ladies hand:

Hand 2

$2/$4 Limit Holdem • 6 Players
UTG 205.78
Hero 147.72
CO 112.35
BTN 67.05
SB 39.15
BB 89.91

Dealt to Hero: QdQc

Pre-Flop (1.5 SB, 6 players)
1 fold, Hero raises, 2 folds, SB calls, 1 fold
Flop (5.0 SB, 2 players)

6sQhTs (nice, I have the nuts)

SB checks, Hero bets, SB calls
Turn (3.5 BB, 2 players)

Qs (okay now I virtually have the stone cold nuts!)

SB checks, Hero bets, SB calls
River (5.5 BB, 2 players)

3s (fantastic card putting the 4th spade on the board)

SB checks, Hero bets, SB raises, Hero 3-bets, SB 4-bets, Hero calls (this guy was a muppet, but I still don't know why he wasn't worried about the paired board)
Final Pot: 12.8 BB
SB shows AsJd

Hero wins 12.8 BB ( won +6.3 BB ) (which at $2/4 is about a $50 pot)

I then managed to score quads again, versus a full house on Bodog for a 15BB pot there as well. Played a couple orbits of $4/8 before I quit, as the table wasn't quite fishy enough for my liking. I only really played one hand which was KdQd UTG, which came back to me 3 bet preflop. Flopped two diamonds, and turned a 3rd diamond to give me the second nuts, and a 20BB pot in the end which is $160. Ended up around 15BBs there.

I also played against a few muppets at $3/6 on Interpoker. Here's an example of the standard of play:

Hand 3:

$3/$6 Limit Holdem • 6 Players
UTG 323.13
UTG+1 85.5
Hero (CO) 199.25
BTN 141.05
SB 99.5
BB 82.42
Pre-Flop (1.5 SB, 6 players) Hero is CO with As7s

2 folds, Hero raises, 2 folds, BB calls (standard PFR. BB was one of those 65/5 and 50% wtsd fish - although he had been a luckbox as he was up around 25BB/100 over 150 hands)
Flop (4.5 SB, 2 players)

Kd3s2h (damn whiffed)

BB checks, Hero bets, BB calls (time for a cbet even though he probably won't fold)
Turn (3.2 BB, 2 players)

Qs (hmm ... gives me a flush draw)

BB checks, Hero checks (I checked behind here as he is a calling station and I figured my fold equity was almost zero and I do want to see a showdown with A high. Still not sure if its the right move. Probably is.)
River (3.2 BB, 2 players)

9s (hehe awesome .. hit my runner runner)

BB bets, Hero raises, BB calls (even better .. he bet out! thanks!)
Final Pot: 7.2 BB
BB shows 6d2c (seriously
Hero wins 6.9 BB ( won +3.4 BB )

I also played a couple double ups in this time, but there was nothing spectacular in either of those apart from playing against some of the biggest fish i've seen. A number of my opponents were prepared to call all in post flop with 2nd pair so in one of the double ups I found myself sitting on 5,000 chips, with the remaining 4000 chips spread out amongst the other 3 players still in. I just folded into the money. In the second double up, I didn't actually play a hand and still had 1,350 chips when three muppets had knocked themselves out and i'd doubled up.

So, overall after dropping a quick $160 on Sun, in about an hour and a half I made back about $60 of that still on the Sun $2/4 table. Then the Interpoker fish donated me another $100 on the $3/6 tables, and the Bodog fish then donated me about 7BBs at $4/8 and almost 50BBs at $1/2. Add on my Bodog reload credit of around $100 and the session ended up being pretty good.

Current bankroll: $17,150
