I thought I'd try something new for May since i had been SSSing 5c/10c tables all of april with minor sucess. So I get home after my nightshift (where I studied the BSS articles) and sit down for a session of BSS NL2. I really wanted to play NL4 but there doesnt seem to be many tables on Mansion and I prefer to play 6-9 tables or I end up playing too loose.

In short, I have never run so good. In 1219 hands I picked up Aces 7 times, Kings 11, AK countless, and flopped a set with pocket 5's 5 out of 7 times. So, the session was great, but during it I picked up Kings at 2 tables at the same time, and both times I ran into aces. Both hands were played within 60 seconds of each other with interesting results.

Whilst being sick at the sight of seeing 2 consecutive coolers, I almost leaped out of my chair when I flopped the King on the second. Overall it was an interesting session with lots of interesting hands for me to review =) . Its good to be reminded of how fun poker can be!
