Within the first twenty minutes of sitting down, I was dealt A,A and won $75 on a 10,10,3,4 board. Then, I got involved with seat 7 and sucked out (see previous post). Later on, I was dealt K,K and won a small size pot. I was dealt A♠,9♠ and won a medium size pot against Seat 3 who had 7,8 on a A,9,7,6,8 board that had three hearts. I also won a pot with 8,8 on a 2,2,3,4,6 board.
Sitting in seat 6, covering all stack on the table, I get dealt 2♣,2♠. I call a $12 (or $15) bet from seat 4, he is $150 behind. Seat 7, $200 behind, comes along. Flop is 2♦,A♠,7♣. Seat 4, bets $30 and both of us call. Turn is 6♠ and seat 4 bets $50. I didn't want to give them another card so I announced all-in. The dealer put the all-in sign in front of me. Seat 7 thought about it for a while and folded. Seat 4 took forever to make a decision. I got a chance to take a photo as soon as he folded. Seat 7 said he had A,J and seat 4 probably had an ace too. I think it might have been a mistake to push on the turn?
As my towers of red chips kept growing, the guy in seat 10 started calling me Mr. Big Stack. I exchanged few of my red chips for some greens with new players at the table. I floated around $900 for few orbits and took a photo of the stack.
My goal was to cash out a grand. I lost two small pots and played one more orbit before the blinds made it back to me. On the last hand (see previous post), I pulled off a bluff and ended the session with $980!
