It Must be the Weekend

The games on the weekend are pretty dam juicy.

I am itching to leave NL50 behind for good and play NL100 & NL200 exclusively but every time I look at the Pokerstars Lobby the NL200 games look awful, the NL100 games look hit n miss and the NL50 games look amazing. So I am still playing the majority of tables at the Fiddy while mixing in some of the Hundo.

Sometimes the villain turns up with a hand you just don't expect to see:

I am playing a few hands at NL100 too. I got a nice welcome back. Standard Cooler but nice all the same. The interesting part here is the play of the CO. The best he is hoping for surely is 2x AK. Unlikely your gonna get 2 worse pairs calling.
