      Today I sat down while my daughter was watching TV and played a few hands. By the time she got hungry and wanted breakfast, I'd played 35 hands of NL200, and won $495. On one table I played 23 hands, and that is where I won all my money. My first four hands were KK, AQ, AJ, AK. I won very little with these, in fact, I folded the AQ to an early raiser. If I knew then what I found out about him later, I would have won that hand as well.

      It was a rare conjunction. Good cards, which made good hands, and people willing to pay me off. I've seen other players have good days, but this is the first time I have hit so sweetly. If anyone had been getting their first stats on me on this table, it would have looked insane, with pfr of 25%, but they were all legit, and I won every hand. It is only 6/23. ;)

      Heres a couple of the hands.

      I probably should raise more on the flop here, maybe $60, it looks like he has hit, and wants to defend against the FD. With TPTK and nut FD, I want all in as soon as. Any way, it was a nice score.

      This dude was the biggest fish. He is the one who I folded my AQ to earlier, but get this hand. He shows KT, with the T being a spade. Trapped me on the river!! I bet large on the flop and turn, representing fear of the FD. Something worked.

      Then I closed the table, and we went out to eat. Breakfast was good!!
