shit week

Well im going to break a trend of posting new entries only when im running/playing well, I Have really been playing shocking lately especially in my cash game. ive been tilting too easy, not letting toppair type hands go, not thinking about stack sizes when raising. these leaks have slowly crept into my game. Another Thing is my cash game confidance, Ive started doubting wether I can consistently make money.

Going back to wednsday I was at the highest profit id made from cash tabs since I moved to from the old whill crypto site. 6k hands and £ 60 up which doesnt seem that great considering how much i'd made before the move (£260 15k hands) Then wed night and all thursday I lost £35 at cash and £20 in sngs at stars! Probally doesnt seem that much to some people and I dont think I would be too bothered if it was all purly down to bad beats etc.

take for example

Seat 1: rchpro ($25 in chips)
Seat 2: Okrajc ($9.55 in chips)
Seat 3: Target dc ($14.60 in chips)
Seat 4: Kaiypoker ($25 in chips)
Seat 5: Lenok_R ($20.75 in chips)
Seat 6: duckdogblue ($26.50 in chips)
Kaiypoker: posts small blind $0.10
Lenok_R: posts big blind $0.25
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to rchpro [Ts Js]
duckdogblue: folds
rchpro: raises $0.75 to $1
Okrajc: folds
Target dc: folds
Kaiypoker: raises $2.25 to $3.25
Lenok_R: folds
rchpro: calls $2.25
*** FLOP *** [Kd 2h 5h]
Kaiypoker: checks
rchpro: bets $3.50
Kaiypoker: calls $3.50
*** TURN *** [Kd 2h 5h] [8d]
Kaiypoker: checks
rchpro: checks
*** RIVER *** [Kd 2h 5h 8d] [Kh]
Kaiypoker: checks
rchpro: bets $7.50
Kaiypoker: calls $7.50
*** SHOW DOWN ***
rchpro: shows [Ts Js] (a pair of Kings)
Kaiypoker: shows [Qc Qs] (two pair, Kings and Queens)
Kaiypoker collected $27.35 from pot

So Looking at that I cant belive Ive play it this way. I dont mind calling to his rr. but when he checks the flop I decide to steel fair enough(He was quite passive), My flop raise was to small for a starter looks weak already. he calls my raise. Then because he called my raise on the flop I go into passive mode and check the turn. So checking the turn, can I really raise the river on a complete bluff after checking the turn like that bearing in mind I only called his 3bet pf. If anything I should of potted the turn, or even jammed. Seeing he had QQs tilted me like a mofo. Who knows maybe he couldnt fold the ladies to one overcard anyway.

Theres a few other hands ive butcherd also but dont want to bore people with them!

anyway from a highpoint of £415/$618 since my last post my bankroll now stands at £330/$491

going to go and review my 6k hands and see if I can plug any leaks byee.

alright mate, you interested in making a few extra £££? Its all free and you have to do about 2 mins work. Involves placing a couple of ads in your blog either small of large depending on what you want? I got £60-70 here now if you want it with the potential to perhaps earn an extra few hundred on top of that, interested?
Email me

p.s. delete this after you have read it pls :-)
