Grinded 4 hours this afternoon and another 2.5 this evening. Finished the day a bit in the black for a solid weekend overall.
Lost $100 during the afternoon. Didn't run very well and prolly should have been stacked at least once. Most interesting hand of the session came right before I left. I called a $10 bet from the button with JT suited. Small blind, who I had become friendly with, three bet to $30. One caller and I folded. I jokingly thanked the SB for running me from the hand before I was able to get in a bad spot. Flop came JTT. I cursed the small blind in my head - three betting mutha fucker!!!. My friend in the small blind ended up getting it all in on the river and flipped JJ. Wow!!! Dodged a bullet!!
Evening session came down to one big hand, really. I had dropped about $70 a few hands before playing 99 against a young LAG kid when I three bet to $30 pre flop hoping to take it down and got called. Bet $40 on a K high flop and got called. I checked the T turn and folded to a $75 bet. Felt like I may have been run over. So, a few hands later, I have AQ and LAG limp calls $10. Flop comes Q73. Lag checks and I bet $15. Lag raises to 35. I three bet and slide out a stack of $100 redbirds. LAG shoves. HHhhmmm. I only have another $100 + behind, and I really feel like I'm being run over again. What is he limp-calling with and getting it all in on a Q high flop? This kid was raising with most pocket pairs, so even a set of 7's seems unlikely. I hate stacking off with a pair, but I feel I have to call. He turns KQ and I double up. Was this an easy call?
Went totally card dead for over an hour and just decided to call it a weekend. Nice to get back on track.
