Hit Some Luck!!

Thank you lady luck, i came second in the £2500 GTD on Crypto hours ago losing as i was holding out for second at the expense of keeping in touch with the runaway leader this is because the payouts were 3rd-£250 2nd-£500 1st-£750 so there was a massive jump, and as i had a better chance of making second i made sure i was playing tight to do so. Turns out i had to get lucky with QK suited against soon to be 3rd places A3 to snatch 2nd. The heads up game wasn't really a fair one with the chip division. I thought i was a better than the other guy as i had him down as quite loose, but that style made him win the thing so i should criticise. Im just happy to have won the £500 to sort of bounceback from my horrendous week of last and to be only £125 away from hitting my weekly target lol

Afterwards i had a 12 table sesh on any game going between £0.15/0.25-$0.50/1. Playing for 2 hours for £20 profit so not too bad and not too good. I feel that i have regained my rhythm for the cash games which should come as bad news for any of my opponents because i am raring to go. On top form i can also play 12 tables as if i was only playing 1 so with this much confidence i want to see one hell of a week.

I have one intriguing hand here to show you all. I thought i would get inventive. And you should know when i did this i was playing 12 tables

Board [2h Qd 3s]
Seat 1: AcesSarah (small blind) folded before Flop (didn't bet)
Seat 2: Stan25101 (big blind) folded before Flop (didn't bet)
Seat 3: Jam4Juna folded before Flop (didn't bet)
Seat 4: Ant040689 collected $22.57
Seat 6: Miocene (button) folded on the Flop

I had him on a certain range. As i had AK i knew it was unlikely he had KK or AA because there were only 3 of each left. As a Q hit the board i didn't have him on QQ as this was also unlikely. So from him re raising to 4 pre flop i have him on 99, 1010, JJ, AQ or AK. The latter two less so, so i had him on the underpair to the Queen. This read heightened by the $7 raise on the flop into a pot of 9. He sensed my weakness with my check and pounced with a menacing bet of $7
which looks like he means business but i know it can mean weakness. My re pop to $17 looks very strong as its only a little over a minimum raise and is saying to miocene that i want him to remain in the pot, when i obviously don't in reality! He then folds to my happiness :)

I found this to be the most poignant hand of the night and i will continue to pick the creme of the crop after every session to keep my descriptive skills flowing and have myself always examining my game.

Bring on some sleep and bring on the thousands of hands tomoz!!!
