EvilOrly\’s Poker Journey

I have no complaints about this loser hand. I got drawn out on but I had my money in with the best hand.

Another big hand I lost was a misread. I was multitableing and had action going. I misread my hand as the nuts but found out I was wrong.

Tomarrow is my wife’s birthday so I doubt I will be playing so I will have a day off. Also I think Friday I will go over PT stats. I have 4k hands this month and believe studying over these can wait no longer. So I may take all friday off depending how long it takes me. I already know I am a losing player over these 4k hands. I just need to find out if my game is fixable.

  1. I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy reading your blog.Don’t let the bad days discourage you.

  2. Seems like this guy was awful loose aggressive. Not much you can say about either hand but just be glad you sucked out on the first one or it would of been a real bad night. Good luck on Friday.

  3. Titans,
    Ya I was lucky on that AA hand. I do not know when to bak off AA unless there is a flush or straight that is obvious out there. You are right too he was a very LAG and not in the smart way, he was up and down the whole time.

    Thanks, I appreciate the comments. I wonder if there is a way to see how many different people look at the blog?

  4. Not really a way to see how many different people view it but you can go to your dashboard and look at your blog stats and it shows some of the places the hits are coming from.
