Continuing to crush....

hands Played: 6844
Winrate: 18.66 bb/100
Winnings: $127.68
Left to $500 goal: $139.79

I've found that I play optimally on 6 tables for about 1.5 hours. Then my play starts to suffer a bit (at least mentally). Will use this knowledge and start taking some breaks around that time instead of playing the full 2 hours. I'm getting in between 400-450 hands per hour it seems while only 5 tabling (5 table when I watch/listen to CR videos).

Anyways, just thought I'd throw in a quick update. Here's an interesting hand by the way:

Stage #1167304957: Holdem No Limit $0.10 - 2008-12-23 17:33:02 (ET)
Table: ICELAND HWY (Real Money) Seat #5 is the dealer
Seat 5 - T0KAREV ($13.81 in chips)
Seat 1 - JOSEMADRE ($10.51 in chips)
Seat 2 - DUBSPOKE ($24.60 in chips)
Seat 3 - TEXICITYS ($20 in chips)
Seat 4 - VIKES999 ($4.26 in chips) <---somewhat of a thinking player but playing too many hands too far; I've got a good handle on this table and its dynamics
JOSEMADRE - Posts small blind $0.05
DUBSPOKE - Posts big blind $0.10
Dealt to DUBSPOKE [Jh Kh]
VIKES999 - Calls $0.10
T0KAREV - Folds
JOSEMADRE - Calls $0.05
DUBSPOKE - Raises $0.30 to $0.40
VIKES999 - Calls $0.30
*** FLOP *** [Qd Ks 10d]
DUBSPOKE - Bets $0.50
VIKES999 - Calls $0.50
*** TURN *** [Qd Ks 10d] [Qc] <---interesting turn
VIKES999 - Bets $0.90 <-----timed down FOREVER before making bet
DUBSPOKE - Calls $0.90 <-----think he is trying to bluff a Queen quite frankly
*** RIVER *** [Qd Ks 10d Qc] [2h]
VIKES999 - All-In $2.46 <-----I don't believe him. 100% confident in my read that he doesn't have a Q. Put him on a missed flush draw.
DUBSPOKE - Calls $2.46
*** SHOW DOWN ***
VIKES999 - Shows [9c 9s] (Two Pair, queens and nines) <----I'm wrong and right, didn't have a Q but wasn't a missed Flush Draw.
DUBSPOKE - Shows [Jh Kh] (Two Pair, kings and queens)
DUBSPOKE Collects $8.19 from main pot
*** SUMMARY ***
Total Pot($8.62) | Rake ($0.43)
Board [Qd Ks 10d Qc 2h]
Seat 1: JOSEMADRE (small blind) Folded on the POCKET CARDS
Seat 2: DUBSPOKE (big blind) won Total ($8.19) HI:($8.19) with Two Pair, kings and queens [Jh Kh - B:Ks,P:Kh,B:Qd,B:Qc,P:Jh]
Seat 3: TEXICITYS Folded on the POCKET CARDS
Seat 4: VIKES999 HI:lost with Two Pair, queens and nines [9c 9s - B:Qd,B:Qc,P:9s,P:9c,B:Ks]
Seat 5: T0KAREV (dealer) Folded on the POCKET CARDS

I'm making these type of plays more often with greater accuracy as to when to fold and when to call. Poker is a lot more fun when you are relaxed and confident.
