I’ve been playing a hell of a lot of poker the past few days. On Saturday I played down at Hollywood Park and made $47 on top of the $100 I started with at the $2/$4 table. Saturday night I played at PokerStars at the .25/.50 table and lost about $14 or $15. Sunday I played again on PokerStars at the .50/1 and made about $11 on my $34. Today before our weekly game I played on PokerStars (.25/.50) and lost about $6. At the weekly game I made about $5. After the weekly game I played on PokerStars (.50/1) and made $17.

So… I guess I’m up. But when you compare this amount divided by the number of hours, it doesn’t really seem worth it. Especially when I’ve got other shit to do.

Player 4, having been re-raised when he had the nut hand, might have suspected something dangerous was afoot. He might have been able to go all-in and scare Player 6 out.
