Default Brag: moved up.

So, I've been playing 1/2 NL 6max since May and been doing alright, but I always had a hard time moving up to 2/4... seems like everytime I tried I'd run bad, and then have too few buyins to move up. I took 2-hour coaching session (fixed a few leaks, nothing too major) and moved up Wednesday, starting to 8-table 2/4 NL. Things went... well?



First time I followed a fish to 3/6, my second hand was this:

Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em, $6 BB (5 handed) Party Poker Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com (Format: 2+2 Forums)

UTG ($611.10)
MP ($564)
Button ($612.60)
Hero ($594)
BB ($633)

Preflop: Hero is SB with K[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], K[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img].
<font color="#CC3333">UTG raises to $24</font>, MP calls $24, <font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, <font color="#CC3333">Hero raises to $102</font>, <font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, UTG calls $78, MP calls $78.

Flop: ($312) 9[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], 3[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], 7[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(3 players)</font>
<font color="#CC3333">Hero bets $200</font>, UTG calls $611.10 (All-In), MP folds, Hero calls $591 (All-In).

Turn: ($1534.20) J[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players, 2 all-in)</font>

River: ($1534.20) 5[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players, 2 all-in)</font>

Final Pot: $1534.20

Results in white below: <font color="#FFFFFF">
Hero has Kd Kc (one pair, kings).
UTG has As 9s (one pair, nines).
Outcome: Hero wins $1714.10. </font>

Tonight I saw a 51/25 guy play 5/10 so I decided to play some. Third hand while at the table (donk was CO), this baby comes up.

Party Poker (6 handed) Party Poker Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com (Format: 2+2 Forums)

Preflop: Hero is Button with 8[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], 6[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img].
<font color="#666666">3 folds</font>.

Flop: 2[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], K[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], T[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(3 players)</font>
CO folds.

Turn: 8[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
.

River: 2[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
MP calls 3 (All-In), Hero calls 1 (All-In).

Final Pot:

Results in white below: <font color="#FFFFFF">
MP has Kc Tc (two pair, kings and tens).
Hero has 8h 6h (flush, king high).
Outcome: Hero wins . MP wins . </font>


I guess this compensates for losing with str8 flush and whatnot. Thx Party.

According to my forecast, I should be pwnting 25/50 at 107 352 PTBB/100 by the end of the week.
