Poker was easy these past two days, and I’m definitely grateful for it. I’ve had two easy, winning sessions without getting in any serious trouble at all. Never losing a big pot sure cuts down on the stress of poker!
Unfortunately, I really don’t have any interesting hands to report. In my one big hand of the day we take a flop off 5 handed with QJ offsuit and the flop comes 810A giving me a double gutter. The early position player bet out fairly large, but I flatted him hoping to make a well-disguised hand since we were both deep. The turn was a beautiful offsuit 9 and I got paid off just like I drew it up.
That was the only pot I played bigger than >$200 in the entire 7 hour session on Friday. For those of you familiar with how 2-5 plays, it’s very rare to play a whole session without playing any big pots but I really did. I saw lots of flops and was able to get away cheap when I flopped second-best. I don’t have much interesting to report aside from the fact that it went very well.
I’ll update this week with a post I’ve been meaning to make on how online poker has been going for me lately, complete with a chat log that you’re sure to find interesting. Until then…
