A Mixture of Limits
Started playing in a $3/$6 game this afternoon and after 2 hours I wa down about $60. Then tonight I played some $2/$4 limit poker followed by some excellent $0.50/$1 No Limit Heads Up poker.
I think that I need to improve my heads up play as it always seems to be in the latter stages of the game that I turn turtle and run from a possible pot. Anyway, it was really good fun, I took a few dollars off one guy and lost a few less to another. Really good fun poker for a few dollars.
The annoying thing about when you're playing these small stakes heads up games is that you see just how much goes in rake. The last game I took $15 to the table and the other guy $5. Within 30 minutes, there was only a total of $12 on the table! Shocking!
Anyway, my days experiences at Poker333 turned $139.75 into only $83.25.

Poker333 $1/$2 Limit Texas Hold Em
So much was going my way that I surprised even myself and the other poker players were certainly paying attention when I started upping the betting. They were running like chickens apart from 2 or 3 fish which were sure that my success was going to come to an end soon.
I accumulated a fair bit of cash and then, as I normally find, I crashed...badly.
The cards changed and I think I probably was counting too much on my previous successes which didn't help. Anyway, I ended my Poker333 session $2.25 out of pocket. Not too bad I suppose.
Well if actually losing at poker can be explained as not too bad!
PokerStars beats me Again....Grrr
Started off badly, as is my normal in the course of an evening and was down about $50. Darn flushes were aplenty and none for me. However, before my time ran out, I managed to claw myself back to finish with $46.25 from a $60 deposit.
mmm.... $13.75 in the hole. Must do better.

Bet Fred Tournament
60 poker players started in the freeroll and I made position 19. Could be worse, could be better but at least it was FREE which is always nice.

Poker Stars - $1/$2 Limit Texas Hold Em
Played at a table with two other players and won 5 hands straight, before losing two and called it a night. No point in playing poker when you're too tired. I've tried it before and you just end up losing.
Turned $20 into $41 though so I'm happy to have had a win as my track record was starting to worry me. I haven't won for a while. YIPPEE!
Anyway, off to bed now to dream about that WSOP bracelet that I'm bound to win soon. Ha ha ha.

The Weekends Here
Planning a weekend of late nights playing poker, providing I can get some other work done. :)
Entered in a special $2000 Freeroll at Bet Fred Poker this coming Sunday, so I'll need some practice before then!
