Decent sessions last 2 days. Didn't nearly get the hours in that I had wanted. Ended up +300 over 10 hours of play. Unfortunately the first night I didn't really get the chance to make any hands and had to win my pots thru bluffing. Actually up until the last hand I think I was even.
I had been fairly active pre for the last half hour when I opened to 10 with KQss from lp and got called my the B and both blinds. Flop comes 10s9s3d both blinds check to me and I decide to check as well, button bets 15 and just the sb calls. I was thinking of cr but the sb had been calling me down fairly light so I just called. Turn was a 5h. The sb decides to randomly open fold and I check again.
Button bets 15 and I cr to 70. He calls somewhat quickly. River is a horrid card the 9c. I didn't think there was a great chance he would fold a hand like A10 or K10 but at the same time I didn't want to check and have him show me 108 or an Ahi flush draw so I lead for 125 and pushed him off a j10. Tbh no other real interesting hands during that session.

Saturday night I got way to fancy the first hour I was there and found myself stuck 200 right off the back. I took a break and got in grinder mode and 5 hours later I had booked a +150 profit. Once again no overly interesting spots except for iv flopped set over set with AAon a AJ3 board and didn't get all my chips in.. (I play bad) I opened to 10 from utg for the 2nd time a row (had b2b AcAs) and got called in one spot. Flop came AhJd3h. I check he bets 10 I call. Turns a 9 I check he bets 15 I raise 20 more ( meant to raise 30 more but only put out 35) he just calls. River is the case A. I bet a 100 he thinks for a bit and just calls and turns over JJ.. Fml him not re raising my turn cr.

Anyways that's about it. Good chance I'm taking the night off, I'll update after next session. Once again all the people that came out and saidsupportive in regards to me continuing the thread I appreciate it. And look forward to grab big a beer with you guys when you come to town

dislike the checks baby, you cripple ranges on both hands yet boards are at least somewhat action heavy (although being results oriented it won you the first hand lol)

keep winning tho!

BGill FTW!

Congrats on the profitable weekend, still around $30/hour for playing. What poker room did you play it this weekend? Unless I missed it reading the posts.

Why "unfortunately"?

After all, your opponents' mistakes is you sole source of value, right?

Does the Excalibur have dealers now, or is it still the electronic tables?

Maybe he was put off a little bit by the PFR who check calls the flop and then basically minraises the turn.
