(Rake: $3.00)


I have to say that I have been playing terribly this month and am still having success because of pots like this keeping me in the profit. If I was playing NL100 or NL200 this month I would have been crushed as there aren't as many give aways and you have to earn your $$$s..!!

The funny thing is that everyday when I review my sessions I know exactly how I should have played the bad hands but I am not executing it at the moment in the heat of battle for some reason.

After 1 session today I find myself up $22 but have spotted 3 hands where I spewed $90 in easy fold spots. So, I should be up £110 but my control has been bad.

Then, on the flip side there are some days where I play flawlessly and make virtually no mistakes.

I have to find some consistency..!!
