It's been a rocky start for 2010 for my Poker playing. 2009 was a pretty good year all the way thru until November when I had my first losing month in over a year. I managed 3 losses and 2 winning sessions. I dont think I played badly, just ran into to many gamblers and bad luck. I have always said that my game really requires that I not run into any bad luck. This month was to much of that. Generally, I was always ahead and they just sucked out on me.
During my last session of the year I was getting more lucky then normal. My rags were hitting! Open enders with 89 and 64, hitting 2 pair with 53, etc.. I usually dont like to play those hands, but I kept noticing that when I folded them, they kept hitting. I noticed 3 times on the button that my rags were hitting 2-pair every time. I usually dont play the button with that crap, but decided why the heck not. Sometimes when you are hot, you just have to playing any 2 hands. Just be careful, it doesnt last for ever and never become cocky. This game has a tendacy to make you humble when you least suspect it.
The last session of the year I booked a $300 win. I'll take it and hopefully the rest of the year is more steady.
