Life of a Low Stakes Gambler...

Here we go again.

Well, I realize I haven't updated in a while, I hadn't really played poker online since the last time I posted about drying out my Full Tilt Poker account. Since then I've reloaded three times for 50 bucks each time. Right now the account stands at 30 dollars. I haven't been doing great. I've played mostly .05/.10 NL and 6 handed SnG. Here's a couple of recent hands (I tried using some converting thing, but I couldn't get it to work, so whatever)

lol, just posting this one because its one the few times 7-10 has worked for me. I can't resist playing it knowing its Negreanu's favorite hand.

This other hand happened earlier today in a 6 handed SnG. I began playing real tight and it wasn't until 2 players were eliminated that i began to play a little more, and by the time it was 3 players left, i was chip leader. Then this happens...

So I flop the straight and try to slow play it. When he bets at me, i figure he's got a flush draw, but so am I, so I'm not going to make it cheap for him to see the turn so I re raise and he smooth calls. Turn isn't a spade so I'm thinking he missed the flush, and I honestly never put him on QJ. So i figure he is bluffing and i push. Well, he flips QJ obv., and the river bricks so i also miss my flush. That brought me back down to shortstack and i still had a few chips to work with but I couldn't climb back up and ended in 3rd, bubbling. Oh well, tough.


Besides poker, this past week, I opened up an account on Bodog to do some sports betting. I won 10 dollars on the Pachuca v Atlas game, and then I gave them back in the America v Pumas. I also just barely missed a nice payout on a 3 game parlay laying down 5 dollars and in position to win 37 if I hit on all three of the matches. Santos rolled over Veracruz and Necaxa barely beat Puebla, but Chivas couldn't comeback from an early 0-1 deficit so there went my big payout. I did hit a two game baseball parlay on Sunday but it wasn't for much. Then today Cubs and Brewers won, and if the Yankees had won i would have gotten a nice 13/1 payout but Yankees got killed 18-9. Some guy on the Angels had 10 RBI! That's insane. I might pick some games a little later tonight for another parlay for tomorrows games. I also have a lock on a Sunday soccer match from la Liga. Barca v Racing, so thats easy money, I hope anyway.

Well, I'm out. I will Honestly try to update more often, no joke. I'm going to go play some Limit Hold Em' on FTP for a while. Adios..
