Trump...and languishing voyage.

I headed to Trump for yet another live poker session Friday night. I had to work late so I didn't get there until almost 11pm missing a fellow area blogger. If anyone who visits here hasn't found this hella cool poker blog it'd be worth your time to visit often.......Shelly has a great and entertaining writing style.....I'm sure you'd enjoy it.

I played 45 minutes of 6/12 and was plus $100 when they opened a 10/20 table. The 6/12 table I was at was a must move table so I took the seat at 10/20 (I would have stayed 6/12 if the table would have been in tact). The 10/20 table had about half that were ACTION junkies and half solid aggressive players. I nearly doubled my stack in the first couple of hours courtesy of these players sitting with almost $950 in front of me.

A couple hands of note:

I was dealt the Hilton Sisters in MP and raised it up. I got respect from a couple players who noticed I didn't play alot of pots and when I did I was raising. Had a two callers. Flop came 6 2 6 rainbow. I bet out after both EP players checked and was called in both spots. The turn came another duece and it was checked to me where I bet out....was called.....and then was check-raised by the second EP player.....we both called and I knew he had a duece. The river was another beautiful 6 giving me sixes full of queens......he bet into me and I raised him....we lost the first guy and he called me where I took down a nice size pot.

I had pocket 7's in MP..... raised and was called in 5 spots....(yuck). The flop brought a beautiful 7 J 2......a player in EP bet out.....was called by me and in 3 other spots. The turn brought another duece......the EP player bet out and the player to my right raised.....I re-raised and the EP and player to my right both called. The river was a 4.....the EP player checked....the player to my right bet.......I raised.....the EP folded....and the player to my right called. He turned over 2 9 suited for trip dueces and I tabled my full house.

Everything went downhill from there. I held K Qs and raised......4 callers with a flop of Q (one queen had been exposed and burned by the dealer) 6 7........I lost a big pot to a Gambooooler who called two bets cold pre-flop with 6 7 offsuit. This same gamboooooler stacked A LOT of my chips (along with a lot of other players) by the time I left around 3am. He was a very nice a pleasant fellow who was obviously a regular and having a good time. I was determined to play until I was broke or he left as the game was perfect and I just needed variance to swing back my didn't swing back my way and I got up when this gentlemen left with several racks of red......$500 or $600 of which had been in my stack at one time and I left $50 down overall ($100 total since I filled up with gas).

It was a great game and I look forward to getting back to Trump on Sunday....hopefully finally meeting up with one hella poker blogger.

Sorry for the lack of posting......I haven't played online in almost two weeks......hopefully will get a chance to before too long. Been busy with work and family......not a bad thing. Look forward to getting back to a regular type online playing schedule.

Til then....
