That number represents the amount I lost on my first day as a full time poker player.
I started off playing at the 1-2 NLHE table while I waited to be called to the 2-5. It was a new table and Brian happened to be sitting in seat 1 while I played from seat 8.
Surprisingly, he plays very similar to Brad. His VPIP was 90% and of those hands, he C-bet 99% of the flops. That guy is a total LAG with zero thought to position or players in the hand. His style of play was to run over the table with any two cards and I must admit, that approach was working quite well because everyone was too scared to fight back and 3-bet. They either just folded or check/called and let him get there.
It was incredible to see a full time poker pro play that reckless at a poker table but that style would never work at 2-5 NLHE because he would be eaten alive trying that shit.
Now I understand why he plays the lower limits most of the time.
Anyways, I played 1:15 hours before getting called over to 2-5. I left stuck at that table for $103.00
I sat down at the 2-5 table with $497.00 and wasted a seat for the next 4:46 hours. I finally got dealt 10J in the cutoff & raised to $20.00. I got two callers & we saw the following flop…
It ended up a 3-way, all-in flop which bloated the pot to $1600.00. The turn was 2c and the river Qc.
Believe it or not, I didn't swear, spit or piss on anybody's leg. I just got up quietly & went home.
I gotta find a new job.
