1885 hands of NL

5 tabling the $50 tables. I had a couple of tough folds (for me) in the early going and then it was smooth sailing until I kept missing draws in big pots. Got some donks to donate near the end though so all ended well.

I am running at 8.83ptbb/100 thru 6500 hands. That's what I'm talkin' about!

I can't tell you how many times I saw somebody with AA make a horrible river call when they had to call a huge overbet. I guess if I can fold AA when I'm obviously beat I'll be ahead of the average $50 NL donk.

Speaking of:

Villian is 17/13/.8 AF btw which probably tells me I could've easily folded the turn. But hey, I'm learning and I guess he could've had a busted flush draw but I would be surprised with his stats being so passive.

Here's my chart from tonight:

It's nice to win money while I'm learning a new game. Hopefully things keep falling my way and I don't try to get too fancy. I think I was a victim of that tonight for a while. There's just no need to go crazy at this level. Make hands and make money.

Oh I also min-cashed in the 5k Turbo Takedown yesterday for $90. AQ < AK when I pushed 2 off the button with 6k and 1,100 in the middle. BB had me drawing dead on the turn. I made a big call early with QQ on a 542 board and 33 somehow missed 17 outs on the river to double me.

BR $2,190.72
