My session started out rough and it stayed that way. There is nothing fun to report about this session.  I ran bad and I played bad and I became discouraged.  It is at these times I would prefer my moods to not swing when this happens but it’s hard.  The psychology of poker is frustrating.  It would be painful to look back at to displayed the notable hands.  This session I’m going to leave as is from major disappointment.  I won’t be moving up levels in Micro Stakes Poker anytime soon.

My session started out rough.  A few minutes in I played pocket 22 and to my delight I turned a set on a 10 10 8 board.  My excitement increased as my opponent raised hard. We happily shoveled our money into the middle and to my dread I found that my opponent had flopped a full house and mine was a weaker full house.

I lost a full stack in the first few minutes of my session so I knew I would be dealing with an up hill battle.  It turned out that many of my opponents playing poker that day were terrible players.  I proceeded to get my money in the middle with a few others and I capitalized each time.  I ended the session up about $10.00.

Another session where I leave up money.  I’m not sure if I’m just running good or getting lucky.

Micro Stakes Poker Hand of the Night

It happens at minute 56:59.  I’m dealt 99 in the big blind and the cut off raises and I call.  The flop comes all under cards and being that I wasn’t the pre-flop raiser I check the flop hoping to see a cheap turn.  I’m not confident at this point that I’m ahead but once the turn comes I know I’m good.  We end up getting it all in and my opponent fails to fold his over pair as usual.

Micro Stakes Poker Worst Hand of the Night

My worst hand played can be seen right at the beginning of the 99 hand on the left table.  I have 73 on the button and I try to steal the blinds, I then try to steal the flop and I’m called with an Ace and Queen on the board. My opponent checks the turn and so do I.  He then also checks the river and I attempt a wild over bet to win the hand because I have zero show down value. 

I just don’t need to make these types of moves at these limits.  I actually shouldn’t make those moves at any limit.  It’s simply a terrible move every time. 

Here are my notable hands for this session.

I’ve finally figured out the settings that my laptop can handle to best display the stream.  With my current hardware I don’t think it’s going to get any better than this. I hope you enjoy.

Micro Stakes Poker Hand I’m Most Proud Of

You would never guess the Micro Stakes Poker hand I’m most proud of in this session because it appears quite meaningless and trivial but to me it’s not.  It’s the J10 hand that begins at 10:47.  I’m on the button and the cutoff raises and I call.  The flop came J4A and the Cutoff continuation bet 15c into a 32c pot.  Which if my math serves me correct is less than 50% of the pot. 

After raising preflop from late position and an A comes off when the CO bets small it makes me feel like he missed and is scared of the A.  If he hit the A, say he had something like A10, he would either bet harder, like 70% of the pot in order to build it or would do something fancy like a check raise.  Instead his standard small bet alerted me I can take it down

Of course I also had second pair so even if he called I knew I had outs that could help me take his entire stack.  Of course as usual it’s always best to play in position so you can easier gather free intelligence from their play and or reactions to cards. 

Another hand I enjoyed of course was my A7 hand at 7:43.  When you win a person’s stack it is of course very fun.  My opponent was either on tilt or fed up of me constantly raising his blind in the past.  Who know which is was.  I guess he could have simply been a bad player.
