      Wife and Kids packed off to her mums for a week!

      Finished watching a few PS Vids and now ready for a day of Poker and Sport TV!

      Gonna start with some cash games but got an urge for SnG & MTT.

      Will post back in a couple of hours on how my day is going!

      100mins done and was looking good until this. Had just taken a nice pot off him the hand before without a showdown and figured he had gone on tilt. Was hoping for him to have AT/AJ.... New I'd lost as soon as I saw his cards.

      MP3: $5.08 (127 bb)
      CO: $4.54 (113.5 bb)
      BTN: $4.67 (116.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG+2 with K A
      UTG+1 folds, Hero raises to $0.12, MP1 raises to $5.81 and is all-in, 6 folds, Hero calls $5.69

      Flop: ($11.68) 4 2 9 (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      Turn: ($11.68) J (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($11.68) T (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Final Board: 4 2 9 J T
      Hero mucked K A and lost (-$5.81 net)
      MP1 showed 5 T and won $10.91 ($5.10 net)

      Just finished

      $1.20 20seater sng (9th) Winnings $0
      $2.40 20seater sng (3rd) Winnings $8
      $2.40 10 seater sng(2nd) Winnings $6
      $5.50 30 seater sng (1st) Winnings $60

      Overall Winnings $74
      Net Winnings $62.50

      Turned my day right around!

      Could not believe how bad people were playing on the $5 game! So many limpers pre flop playing fit or fold poker!

      Marked 1 player at the start of the game as being half decent and ended up hu against him. He had not limped once all game but then started limping against me hu and I was able to take down a number of pots after the flop from BB with absolute trash!

      Ended up racing him (5s against QT) but had him covered 3to1. My 5s held up!

      Gonna have a go at some micro tourneys now so (hopefully no feedback for a few hours)

      Overall I'm now up $39 on the day and my $50 PS starting bankroll is looking healthy at $187.

      n.b. Anyone got an answer for my QQ hand I posted earlier? Once I get some feedback I'll show what I did. Think I played it wrong!

      No joy so far on Tourneys!

      Keep getting in the right spots (70%+hu or 40%3way) but board has not helped me!

      Played 2 $5.5 $2K GTD and 3 $1.20 can't get close but luving the poor play on $5 games. I have found a better quality of player on the $1 games than the $5 games.

      $5 players seem to love to call my push with anything from J5s to A9o
      Best hand I've been called with was 33!

      Right that is it, I'm beat!

      Nothing else happened. No decent MTTs around, had a 3rd in a 12 seater (donkey called my aces with 54 and hit 54!)

      Finished the day up $30+ too tired to work out full amount.

      Happy with my game play just lost a lot of big +evs but that's the game!

      Main thing I think I found today is that the $5 mtt/sng games are well worth a go but be prepared for a lot of 3way donk action even when you push. And don't get mad when qq-aa fall to T5o.

      Might go fishing tomorrow and have a rest from the poker.

      Keep it tight!
