I love my play here and I'll fill you in on why tomorrow.
BTW - in this hand below, 2 donkeys and the villain who is a thinkin and relatively tough tagsish type (24/14 >295h).
Another quick stat, I've switched skins to UB for aesthetic purposes (cleaner than UB) with a better "classic" table layout for 4-8 tabling). Anyways made the switch a few days back.
Here is how I'm running:
25NL: 3817 hands = -8.22 BB/100 (in HEM BB/100 = PTBB)
10NL: 2672 hands = +21.15 BB/100
I can only think it is a mental thing about "running bad." I guess I could whine about top set of Aces getting beat by a guy not giving up a J3s and getting runner runner for a flush for 180bbs or losing to 53 vs AA on a K93 flop where he turned two pair but I won't. I've sucked out my own a fair number of times.
So I'm taking a different approach. Playing one table of 25nl and 3 of 10NL as I implement some changes to my cbetting strategy. More on that on a later date.
Anyways, back to the hand that really swung my night at my 25NL table:
