Bovada 0.05/0.1 & 0.1/0.25 NLHE Zone 6-Max
It was a week mostly like this. I got stacks in good but ended up losing.
Eighteen sessions. Two hundred eighteen minutes. 943 hands. -325BB. -34.5BB/100 hands.
Encore Club $11K NLHE
MIssed the Thursday night $9K because of a family obligation and I had to work on Saturday, so the special $25K game was out. I ended up getting in at break in the Friday night game after passing up the opportunity to smoke legal weed at a friend’s get–together early in the evening. Got the buy-in and add-on, but not the live re-buy. I’m cheap.
My table was entirely late-reggers, including several of the club’s top regulars. On the second hand I played, about 40 minutes after the first break, I had K
Half an hour later at the second break, I had 40K, equal to what you could buy in for if you bought the max chips. Chip average was 51.5K, so I felt relatively comfortable. By that point, my original table had broken and I was in a new position.
On the first hand after the second break, we had a raise and four callers (not including me) to the flop, a bunch of low diamonds on the board. Everyone checked, The turn made it 3
I picked up blinds and antes in one hand with a shove holding K
Two-and-a-half hours in I hadn’t seen a pair above 6
I spent most of three hours with a third to a quarter of the average stack. I’d just been through the blinds when our table broke and I was moved into the BB on the new table. A fold left me with only about 3BB (and I still had to pay SB on the next hand. Shoved over a raise with A

Bovada $2K NLHE 6-Max
I really blew this one. Got into the game with a ticket from points for all of the Zone play. Fifteen minutes in, I got incredibly lucky, and not because of the cards.
I was in BB with T
I take out a short-stacked player half and hour later, drop back down near starting stack after losing a couple hands then getting bluffed off 6
Then it was downhill. Flopped top pair against bottom set (who made quads on the river) but didn’t pay off the river value bet. I did, however, pay off with 7
Three hours and five minutes. 210 hands. 26th of 142 entries.
Bovada $1K NLHE 6-Max Turbo
Lost 3/5 of my stack the first hands I played. J
Fourteen minutes. 13 hands. 37th of 43 entries.
Final Table $1K NLHE
The start of a bad day of live poker. Already trying to forget it. Did an (uncommon for me) rebuy because there was some overlay (the early starts this month in Final Table’s shootouts may be eating into their morning tournament). Half the field went to the final table. I was short-stacked, lost a race with tens to another short stack and missed the money by a few spots.
Two hours and forty minutes. 7th of 21 entries.
Came back in the evening and the overlay was even bigger. Again, I had to do a re-entry, but things did not go my way and I busted on the last hand before break.
Fifty minutes. 14th of 15 entries.
Encore Club $1.5K NLHE
The early bustout from Final Table meant I could get over to Encore in the middle of the second level. Bought the live re-buy when I got in, There was not only no overlay there, the pot was more than double the guarantee. I made what was probably a bad bet and had to fold to an all-in and just never managed to recover.
Sixty-five minutes. 37th of 43 entries.
Bovada $2K NLHE
Late reg with a ticket. It’s a Deepstack tournament with 10K chips to start. I sign up during a break during Level 11, with blinds at 250/500/50. My first hand, I have A
