Poker at MGM

My first poker session of the year at the MGM occurred few weeks ago in the middle of March.  I got there at 10:30 a.m. and was seventh on the $1/$3 list.  I decided to take a stroll around the casino and get an Mlife rewards card.  By the time I got back, there was no waiting list.  The podium guy sent me to a table right behind him.  I give the poker room 8/10 and I like it way more than MDLive.

Just as I put my $200 on the table, the dealer asked me if I wanted to wait to come in and I said yes.  It only took three hands before I saw my two old friends Mr. Ace and Sir Ace!  Check out the hand replays below (use ShareMyPair app on your phone).  I think sharing hands this way will be more beneficial to me.  I'm a visual person and seeing the action unfold and the pot size each street will make hand analysis easier.

Hand 1:

Few orbits later, I was in the small blind and the following hand went down.

Hand 2:

Not much happened until two old pals stopped by again.  That's right, you guessed it, Ace and Ace.

Hand 3:

Looking back at Hand 3, I probably over-bet the pot.  There were no draws so letting them see a card for $30 might have been OK.  I took this photo as I waited for the big blind before calling it quits at 1 p.m.  Here is the end result.
