Surfing before work

Mama never told me there were so many fish at 2/4 no limit.

I never would have thought there are so many players who don't know what they're doing. In general, it seems looser and more aggressive than many lower limit games, but those are the only real differences. There are plenty of donks.

I only moved up a couple of days ago, after I decided that I really should try to play higher no limit games. It's just a natural. Despite my obsession with limit over the last year and a half, no limit has always been my best game. I don't know what's wrong with me -- I should have done this a lot sooner.

To start, I hit a bad run where KK ran into a five-outer on the river, and fortunately it got checked through. Then I lost with a boat vs. quads, and I missed out on a $1,100 pot.

But it was easy to get some of it back tonight. I can only think of one hand where I hit, but I was still able to value bet enough and fold when I was beat to make a little change.

Several other things probably contribute to my feeling that this game is fishy and that I'm playing well. I've been pretty strict with my game selection, I'm holding the tables down to two or three at a time, and I'm taking a shit ton of notes.

It really does help. Multitabling is all well and good, but there's no way I can play my best game 10-tabling. That's not to say it isn't profitable; it's just not as profitable as moving up in limits.

I've had a hell of a week.

Got drunk Friday night.

Hiked around Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island all day Saturday and Sunday.

Sat around Monday.

Went for a hike at Maunawili Falls on Tuesday.

Surfed before work today.

Hawaii rocks. Pictures coming up soon!

Well, thats sounds like a nice living.

I think we are eagerly awaiting those pics. Of course, not the sauced ones.

I cant think of a better way of spending friday night anyway... I got a little drunk myself as well. It was a long time since the last one!
