The upswing is over!!! lmao. Wow what a crappy session. I hadn't planned on even playing as I was going to be busy moving on Friday. Me and a friend went to see the Avengers and I ended up sleeping through most of the movie. Afterwards I felt well rested enough to go play. So we hit up Hollywood Park.
When we got there, the 5-10 game was going and we were 7 handed when I sat down. I recognized one solid player and one very loose passive fish. The others were unknown to me. Everyone had stacks of about 1500-2k except for one Filipino guy who had about 3500-4k.
The game was quite good. There was a crazy Asian lady who called anything PF and stacked off very light post flop, but she would only buy in for 500 and even short bought for 200 a couple of times. There was the loose passive fish, 2 solid players(though one is overly tight and predictable), the Filipino guy turned out to be pretty tight and conservative as well, then one sort of bad LAG. He would open to or raise to 60 about 70% of hands. But he was pretty passive post flop. He checked most of his range on the flop. Especially the stronger part of his range. But he would bet the turn and river only when he had a hand. I never saw him fire two or more barrels with air.
So anyways as you can see from my stats it wasn't a very good session for me. So what the hell happened you say? Well I played one hand very SPYUtastically, then lost 1 coin flip(where I gambled pretty big PF), and then lost another decent sized pot when I got check shoved with a gut shot and the guy hits on the turn. Here they are in full detail.
Hand 1 "I hate money" Effective stacks $3k. This is pretty early in the session and so I didn't have any reads on Villain yet. Villain in this hand is the Filipino guy. This is stupid, but I thought Villain's stack was a lot smaller than it was. He had 3 $1k chips that I didn't see at all. So I thought he only had like $1500 or so when he actually had me covered. My stupid mistake as I should've asked. So the hand is a lot more spewy because of that.
Hero is dealt J
PF: Hero raises to 40, Bad LAG calls in SB, Villain raises to 140, Hero calls, LAG calls.
Villain bets 250, Hero raises to 600, Lag folds, Villain goes all in, hero calls(As I said I thought it was like 650-700 more to call, not 2300. God I suck.
Villain is actually nervous and asks to run it a few times, but I never run it more than once.
Thought I had more outs at this point(I didn't)
Villain tables K
So less than an hour into the session already stuck 3k. I reload for 5k.
I start battling back and get to the point where I'm only stuck like 500 for the session. Then these next two hands take place about 2 hrs later.
Hero is dealt 9
on the button.
Effective stacks Villain 1 has about 2700, Villain 2 has about 1100, hero covers. Villain 1 is the Bad LAG, Villain 2 is a solid professional player. He's an older Asian guy named Joe who has played for a very long time. He's sort of a nit and plays pretty tight pre and post.
PF: Filipino guy raises to 40 UTG, Call, Hero Calls, Villain 2 Calls, Villain 1 makes it 300, fold, fold, Hero calls, Villain 1 calls?(This is pretty out of character for him). But I doubt he is giving the LAG much respect. But I actually give him credit for a big hand because he is 3 betting an UTG raiser pretty big from OOP.
Bingo! V1 checks, V2 bets 300, Hero goes all in, V1 calls, V2 tanks for a long time and folds to my surprise.
V1 flips up TT. Ok so lost a coinflip whatever.
Hand 3: Villain in this hand is loose passive fish.
Hero is dealt Q
Effective stacks $1k.
PF: Villain limps UTG, Limp, Hero makes it 75, Bad Lag calls on button, Limpers call.
Villain checks, Crazy Asian lady goes all in for 135, Hero makes it 300, Bad Lag calls, Villain tanks for awhile and then just shoves for about 625 more, Hero calls, Bad Lag reluctantly calls.
Villain jumps up and says, "Yes!!!!! Yes!!!!!! There it is!!!!!" Ooook so you check shoved with something like J8 of spades?
Turn goes check check.
Check check. Villain tables 8
Anyways that's what losing a coin flip, getting unlucky, and playing stupidly will get you.
We got to our house yesterday and are all moved in now. Now we're just unpacking our boxes and organizing the house. I plan on playing my first session in Sacramento sometime later this week maybe Wed night. My first stop will be Capitol Casino which is the closest to my house. Gotta get my crap together and start playing well and running better.
