Played for about 4 hours until my regular game broke at around 9am. Sadly, there wasn’t an 8/16 or a 4/8 going because those broke earlier too. Instead of going home, I decided to kill some time before the games started back up again. After a couple beers I sat at a 40-100 1/2nl for an hour and came up a very small amount.
There was one notable hand where I held JJ’s and after an initial 3x raiser and cold caller I 3bet to 20 with about 50 more behind me, but got 4 bet all-in by the tight passive Small Blind who covered me and says, “you know what I have.” After thinking for awhile, I decided to lay it down. Yea, I know. I’m a nit at NL, Lol! Anyways, he shows A♦️K♦️ and rivers the flush against another all-in. Even though he won the hand, I’m trying to not be results oriented and I’m still questioning if I should’ve called the all-in or fold like I did. To all you solid NL players out there, what do you think? After the 4bet, was this a call or a fold? Both of the other players who were in had me covered.
Anyways, they then started up another 8/16 game and I hopped in and had drinks with a poker dealer buddy of mine. After about an hour or so there, I decided that I wanted a massage and so I called a masseuse over and got one while playing 4/8 LHE. I usually don’t get massages at the cardroom, (in fact this was my 3rd one ever in life), but I had a huge annoying knot in my rotator cuff area, which was probably there because I started lifting weights again recently and I more than likely went heavier than I should’ve for my first time back at it in awhile. The massage was awesome and if you’re at Hollywood Park and looking to get one, look for Alma, because she really knows what she’s doing. Anyways, while I was playing 4/8 LHE, relaxing, and having more drinks, both @ricoindahizzy and @_jazztan decided to join me. Suffice it to say, this was the end result of that session when I finally finished it 15 hours later. I was up $210 at a pace of $14/hour, which is 1.75 big bets/hour. At this point I spent 23 hours at the cardroom and It was then that I finally decided to call it a day. #DoYouEvenStackChips
