      I'm starting a new blog because a lot has changed since my last.

      I ran the $400 I had up into $700 and then tilt lost half. I became generally disillusioned with poker and took a break. I'm back with 25 BIs at NL25 - ready to kick some Full Tilt ass on the 6-max tables.

      My goals include:

      - Post more hands up here
      - Achieve sustained results at NL25 over 10k hands
      - Move up to NL50 6-max (with at least $1000 - $1250)
      - Eventually move to HU NL50 with $2k

      I'll just post as I feel.

      Here we go...

      OK.

      So things have been a bit hectic recently, with holidays (Spain, USA, Reading Festival.) But the good news is that in the small time ive had i have got my BR up from $600 to $940 (atm). This included a small bit of HU NL50 that I took a shot at yesterday (got a BI). Once im at $1150 ill take a two table shot at NL50 6-max

      Im playing really well atm and will post some hands up soon

      took a small shot at NL/PL50 HU for 25 mins and made almost $90 - although i lost 2 BIs at NL25 6-max (one due to internet failure).

      BR up to $1044 or so.

      Heres a few hands from the sess...

      Villain is pretty TAG - but cbets 80% of flops and is generally hyper aggro post flop (and tilted up from me owning his soul)

      in hand 2 my villain is even more titlted btw. a more spewy LAG who likes spazzy bets

      for hand 1 - i was just check calling to avoid losing a big pot on a wet board where i felt it hit his range

      hand 2 - i wont go in to full details but i felt that out of the potential Jacks in his range, i felt that it only included AJ, KJ, QJ, JJ, JT and that he would play KJ and QJ differently on the flop and turn, as well as JJ. So it felt like only JT or maybe a bluff-turned-nuts with AJ were his only jacks. and i thought he had JT 30% time, AJ 5%, Set 5%, Air/underpair 10%, Better two pair 10%, Pair 40%. So i felt like he had me 50% and i was getting 3/1 on a call.

      There are some other factors involving timing and tilt.
