Online Texas Holdem play....

I was really into playing yesterday, so I went looking for some action. I had really wanted to play a texas holdem tournament, but I could not find one worth the effort, so I eneded up playing in a couple of single table games.

I got blasted out of the first one on a bad beat.... things happen in poker....

I was short stacked in the second one, mainly due to not hitting any flops with things like AK... but I was patient. PATIENCE PAYS OFF in texas holdem! I waited out the game, and it got down to 4 players, when I moved my short stack ALL IN with AA... trippled up.. two hands later, I hit another big flop calling another short stack who had been playing strange all game, with a K10. That brought it down to 3.... the money positions! VERY soon, I played a few more hands, and ended up the chip leader!

I was pleased with myself for the patience, and coming from short to leader like I did!

With two remaining, I moved with ATs.... ran up against AQ and got knocked... but.... Overall I was pleased with my play, AND the outcome!

We'll see what today has to offer, as I'll be playing in a few more events. I'm trying to cram in a bunch of action into a short time frame, and to some extent, experimenting with my play... ;-)
