Hero in seat 3. I sit down at the local charity game confident as ever. This game is easy these 1/2 donks are easy free money and I'll hit my goal in no time. I have my phone open and ready to take notes. I look around at my table, 4 old guys 1 asian and 3 young kids who've I've played with in my first session. I have position on that same 2-5 kid that was donking around in the game the day before, and today he seems to be doing the same. Ok lets do this I'm taking all the MONIESSSS
First interesting hand hero is UTG with A
and I raise UTG to $9. It folds around to my v1 from the 44 hand the day before. He just smooth calls and the flop comes 3
5x. V1 checks and Hero leads out $15. V1 snap raises to $60 with like $100 behind. Hero thinks shortly then shoves and I have him covered. He snap folds.
A few orbits go by and I have bet/folded and my stack is around $195. Then this hand comes up. Hero opens UTG to $7 with 10
. I get two callers, in MP 1 and 2. glop comes Q
. Hero decides to check because this flop smacks both their ranges and V1 and V2 both check. Turn brings 6
and Hero checks, V1 checks, and V2 bets $15. Hero calls and V1 folds. River bricks 2
. Hero Check calls $25 bet from V2. I was good. V2 in this hand was one of the young guys I played with from the day before. Also I may have pissed him off he said "good call" and was about to muck but I waited for him to flip his cards over before I showed. He seemed fairly tilted but showed A
. I wanted the info but idk if it was worth the dirty looks lol.
At this point my stack is around the $240 mark and I'm starting to settle down with my raises and cbetting into wet boards multi handed. I pick up 10
in MP3 and and raise to $9 (around standard open in this game) Old guy a few seats to my left raises me to $21, folds to hero and I call. Flop comes 10
3x. Hero checks and V leads out $40 Hero check raises to $100 and V1 snap shoves hero snaps. At charity when you get all in you have to flip your cards over. Villain shows up with K
. Hero did have me covered. Obviously V catches the J
on river and I'm felted. I feel like I have a huge edge at this game and I decide to reload.
I straddle utg, and get a table for a limpers. I look down at 4x7x and check. Flop comes 5
3x. it goes check check Hero checks and MP bets $12. It folds to hero and I decide to bump it up to $33 Villain re raises to $100 and hero (tank) Shoves for a little less than $185 total. Villain snap calls with 6x6x and turn is 2x and river is 2x. WOahhhh just like that my good day goes FELT FELT.
After looking at this day I seem to have realized I have some bad leaks for this 1/2 game that I think will be easy fixes. 1: I need to stop Cbetting so often into wet boards especially multi way. 2: I need to value bet more and stop trying to check raise or check to induce bets. These idiots seem perfectly content check calling with very marginal hands and I need to get value from that. 3: I need to be more patient, and stop getting antsy in this lower limit game. So overall I felt like I couldve played better, but I also ran terrible. If I can stop my 3 leaks I feel like I could run these tables over with closer to ABC poker.
Session 2: -400
