I'm in the middle of exams right now which is why I haven't posted anything lately. Once May gets here, I'll be posting pretty regularly. In terms of online poker the last couple weeks have been pretty boring. I'm in the process of switching from Cake to Lock Poker. Once I get most of my online bankroll on Lock and exams are over, I'll be playing a lot. Until then, I have Vegas and live poker to look forward to.
During the last couple weeks I've been to Casino Montreal a couple times with my roommate Mike. They finally got real tables as opposed to the electronic ones we played on before. I played 2/5 the first time and 5/10 the second time while Mike played the 1/2 game. We both made over a buy-in each time and the games were unbelievably soft. I plan on playing a lot of live poker this summer, even though it can get pretty boring waiting for a hand.
Here's one interesting hand from my first session there:
I had just sat down and only seen two hands. In both, a middle-aged big stack sitting across from me had cold-called raises preflop. I pick up KK in mid-position and raise to 25, it folds to the middle-aged man who flats from the small blind. We're heads up to the flop which comes A-J-6 rainbow. The villain checks and I c-bet $40. He flats again. The turn is a queen. He checks, I check behind. River is a meaningless 4. He leads with a $60 bet. What now?
I'll write my decision in the comments after a couple people weigh in.
That's all for now...I'm going to Vegas next Friday, so I'll give a recap of the trip once I get back.
