Haven't had one of these for a while

Struggled a bit on the weekend to find tables worth playing on, even during peak times. Maybe the skins leaving Cake are having an impact on their traffic already.

It didn't stop me from finding a couple huge fish on one $4/8 table though. In the hour that I played there one lost $600, and the other lost $400. I ended the session $5 up. Frustrating, but better than the $200 I was down at one stage to the two fish.

This month has been a bit of a roller coaster, having been up a solid 200 to 250BBs, then back to 100BBs up and now back to about 160 up. The bankroll fluctuated even more significantly - up $500 from play, back to even, and now up a bit again. But that's how it is, and its just another day at the office.

Here's my favourite hand from my last session:

$2/$4 Limit Holdem
6 Players

UTG $193.75
Hero (UTG+1) $93
CO $132
BTN $107
SB $141.50
BB $74

Pre-Flop: (1.5 SB, 6 players) Hero is UTG+1 8c Tc (about the bottom of my range)
1 fold, Hero raises, CO calls, BTN 3-bets, 2 folds, Hero calls, CO calls (button is a fish, but not overly aggo, so probably has something here)

Flop: Jc 9c 7h (10.5 SB, 3 players) (hehe awesome flop for me - stone cold nuts, plus open ended straight flush draw)
Hero checks, CO checks, BTN bets, Hero raises, CO calls, BTN 3-bets, Hero 4-bets, CO folds, BTN calls (set of Js for the Button?)

Turn: Ah (10.2 BB, 2 players)
Hero bets, BTN calls

River: 7c (12.2 BB, 2 players) (ka-ching)
Hero bets, BTN raises, Hero 3-bets, BTN 4-bets, Hero calls (hehe i'm guessin he hit his boat here. He will be disappointed)

Final Pot: 20.2 BB
BTN shows (Full House, Aces full of Sevens ) Ac Ad
Hero shows Straight Flush, Jack high 8c Tc

Hero wins 19.5 BB (net +11.0 BB)
BTN lost 8.5 BB
CO lost 2.5 BB

He wasn't overly happy losing with the 2nd nuts and may have chatted a little, but I didn't say anything back.

Current bankroll: $25,250
April time played: 18h
April hands played: 4,033
April profit / (loss): $550
