The Fish Fight Back

I've played a few hands over the last 2 days and they haven't been fun.

I am not too bothered as I seem to getting it in good only to be crushed to ridiculous suckouts or really terrible shoves pre.

I will start with this first one which is against an aggro 48/31 type player. When the showdown arrives I am totally shocked by his holding.

Poker Stars $50.00 No Limit Hold'em - 8 players

UTG+1: $50.95
MP1: $49.90
Hero (MP2): $54.95
CO: $51.45
BTN: $21.15
SB: $21.35
BB: $19.65
UTG: $65.30

Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is MP2 with Q of hearts A of hearts
3 folds, Hero raises to $1.50, CO calls $1.50, 3 folds

Flop: ($3.75) A of clubs 4 of hearts 5 of hearts (2 players)
Hero bets $2.45, CO raises to $6, Hero raises to $15.20, CO raises to $49.95, Hero calls $34.75

Turn: ($103.65) 2 of diamonds (2 players)

River: ($103.65) 6 of clubs (2 players)

Final Pot: $103.65

Hero shows Q of hearts A of hearts
CO shows 6 of diamonds 4 of diamonds

CO wins $100.65
(Rake: $3.00)

Couldn't fade the river......


Hand 2 here is probably one where I deserve my stacking as for some reason I didn't raise his mid position open. The villain is a 52/14 monkey that will go broke pretty soon.

Flop: ($96.30) Q of hearts 3 of hearts 2 of spades (2 players - 1 is all in)

Turn: ($96.30) 4 of diamonds (2 players - 1 is all in)

River: ($96.30) 4 of hearts (2 players - 1 is all in)

Final Pot: $96.30

Hero shows K of diamonds A of clubs
MP2 shows Q of diamonds T of hearts

MP2 wins $93.30
(Rake: $3.00)

I am a 64% favourite here pre but that was no good.


Hand 3 is a little less interesting but shows that fish will stack off with any pair pre.

The fight continues.....

  1. unlike me tonight with that KK hand that you saw, laughed when i saw you type in the chat (ty for watching mate).

    I was about to log off and have the first losing day in six, then that massive (for NL$10) hand happened and wayhey, six winning days in a row.
    Just another 600 days to go and my abysmal PTR graph might start to slant upwards!!!

    Funny aint it that you have played less this month and totally crushed it. Something defo to be said about mindset and putting pressure on yourself.

    1-1 today mate, think we should have nicked it at the end when they were down to 10 men.

  2. Nice pot 4-way. You got max value out of it..!!

    6 days in a row is good.... get to 10 then post your HEM :D

    Yeah I did write this month off as a non poker month really and didn't worry about winning. If it weren't for Omaha (future post) I would be up around $1,600

    Dalglish building slowly..!!
